Sweden Reaches 26% Electric Vehicle Market Share!

March 25th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Yes, the Swedish electric vehicle market is an odd one in which approximately 80% of electric vehicle sales are plug-in hybrids, leaving only 20% of the market for fully electric vehicles. Most EV markets are around 50–50 or favor fully electric vehicles (BEVs). Nonetheless, an overall EV market share of 26% is a stunning achievement in early

March 25th, 2020 | by Jose Pontes

With the Chinese electric vehicle (EV) market suffering from the general lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, sales took an expected beating, with only 15,000 passenger EVs registered in February, the worst result in over 3 years, representing a 65% drop year over year

March 22nd, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica articles of the past week, naturally, included a few pieces related to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic that's shutting down half the world. Otherwise, hot topics were the Tesla Model Y (have to wonder how much this vehicle would dominate some portions of the news and public consciousness if not for COVID-19), the Volkswagen ID.3 and overall ID lineup/strategy, and other EV and Tesla news and analyses

Peugeot CEO Carlos Tavares Is An EV Noob

March 22nd, 2020 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

After the cancellation of the Geneva International Motor Show, as compensation for the missed opportunity to interact with the press, Carlos Tavares, CEO of Peugeot, held a conference call with a number of journalists. There were some discussions about the future electrification of the automotive industry. His comments on the subject were shocking for the ignorance they revealed


The European Car Of The Year Election Was An Embarrassment

March 21st, 2020 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

It does not help customers to choose between the myriad offerings on the market by positioning something as the cheapest, coolest, easiest, safest, healthiest, or greenest product they can buy

March 21st, 2020 | by Jose Pontes

Following the start of the EU's new CO2 rules, the German plug-in market has (finally) clicked and February signaled another record performance, its second in a row, having registered 16,508 units in February


The Electric Car Cost Tipping Point

March 21st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the most interesting and most challenging things in my career in cleantech media in the past decade has been communicating technology transitions. It is simply so difficult for us humans to deeply comprehend (or "digest") the arc of the trends as they are occurring. Even a rapid market transition seems like it is going very slowly ("taking forever") until it happens all of a sudden

March 15th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Whether you are considering buying a Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model Y, or another electric vehicle, it is probably worth noting that the Model 3 is the most loved car or passenger vehicle in the United States, based on Consumer Reports surveys of vehicle owners of all types.

Tesla Model Y = Most Likely Next EV Of EV Owners In Netherlands & Norway — CleanTechnica Report

March 15th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Probably the most interesting question we asked in these surveys was one of the simplest: “What do you think your next EV model will be?” It is particularly interesting because it gives us a strong sense of where the market is headed, and combined with answers to some other questions (see the next chapter), it also tells us a bit about which features and specs matter the most to EV buyers
