Aluminum-Air Battery … Chevy Bolt & Hyundai Kona vs. Tesla Model 3 Sales … The Mistake Of Buying A Tesla Competitor — CleanTechnica Top 20

October 28th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of the past week were led by a (somewhat wild) claim of an aluminum-air battery breakthrough. Yup, really. After that, it was almost all Tesla — Tesla Model 3 sales compared to other top EV sales, buying a gas "luxury car" competitor to a Tesla, Tesla disruption in Norway, Elon Musk and Tesla proving naysayers wrong, a Tesla fire, Tesla software updates


Tesla 3rd Quarter Sales Grew 1664% In 6 Years, 271% In 2 Years

October 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

To kick off this article, I'll make an important note: this is not about Tesla stock. Because of how much Tesla short sellers insert themselves into press discussions of Tesla [TSLA], and how long and deep the battles of logic & math are between those short sellers and Tesla shareholders (of which I am one), some people assume that every discussion of Tesla sales or production is about the stock. Perhaps many people assume that. But, no, young Jedi, not everything is about the stock. Now let's get on to the story


“Tesla Demand Cliff” — Mistaken Logic? Tribal $TSLAQ Kool-Aid? Paid Trolling?

October 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

One year ago, when Tesla's 3rd quarter 2018 production and delivery data came out, many Tesla critics were stunned — absolutely stunned. They had been saying for months that Tesla absolutely could not produce the number of cars Tesla ended up producing. They also said with great conviction that Tesla absolutely could not show a profit in the 3rd quarter, or any quarter. Tesla blew the criticisms out of the water with production, deliveries, and a solid profit


New Record: Tesla Delivered 97,000 Vehicles Globally in 3rd Quarter

October 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tesla's 3rd quarter production and delivery numbers — early estimates from the company, at least — are out. We'll have more to report shortly on the news, but for now, here are three CleanTechnica charts (two static and one interactive multi-chart visualization) of Tesla's quarterly deliveries since late 2012 and a portion of Tesla's press release about the news


3 Nuggets About Tesla Customer Demand From 2nd Quarter Conference Call

July 26th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

There are a lot of things that slip into the "Tesla narrative" and common Tesla discussions. Some of those things make sense. Some don't. Some provide insight into the future. Some don't. Two days ago, just before the second quarter Tesla conference call, I wrote a long and rambling piece about Tesla demand, essentially writing that no one knows what Tesla demand is or will be


Tesla Model 3 Has A Lot Of Demand, But Does It Have A TON Of Demand?

July 24th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla conference call tonight could go into all kinds of topics, and CEO Elon Musk is known to pull a rabbit out of his hat from time to time. But there's one fundamental question that will almost definitely be asked a few times, perhaps in different ways or perhaps in exactly the same way repeatedly: How much demand is there for Tesla vehicles


Let’s Talk About Tesla 3rd Quarter Demand

July 3rd, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

After the recent announcement of Tesla's record breaking Q2 production and deliveries, the bears on Tesla can no longer say that Tesla can't build or sell or deliver cars in Q2, but they can repeat the same for Q3. That's fine with me. I'm ready to meet them. So, with everyone talking about the Q2 numbers today, I'm happy to shift the conversation to the third quarter. Let's talk about what we know about Q3. (Full Disclosure: I'm long Tesla [TSLA] stock, but don't expect this to be only good news.)


Tesla Is Producing Unicorns

May 31st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tesla is producing unicorns. Seriously. That's what TSLAQ logic + TSLA logic, when combined, tell us


The Mystery Of Tesla Model 3 Demand

April 14th, 2019 | by Alex Voigt

Demand is a mystery that can only be measured once supply is provided, and at that point, it's not demand anymore. You only know what demand you really had after its gone. Supply is a fact you can easily measure, while demand is never really known or completely understood. Even worse, the supply you measure is usually only a part of the demand you once had, and the closer you get to the moment of supply, the more you know how real the demand is

April 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I've got a lot of numbers to crunch and articles to publish now that Tesla has released its 1st quarter production and delivery numbers. Stay tuned for approximately 20–30 more charts and several articles putting Tesla's vehicle sales numbers into context


8 Things I Learned From Tesla’s Q1 Delivery Announcement

April 4th, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

Congrats to Elon & Tesla for an excellent quarter! These were a unique set of challenging circumstances and Tesla did great.  I would like to apologize to Maarten. I shared with him many of the tweets and links on expectations for Tesla’s Q1 results. Enraged, the G.O.M. ("grumpy old man") valiantly made a prediction. He took the blow instead of me


My Tesla Q1 Forecast Was FUBAR

April 4th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

I have to eat crow. That is the civilized way to say it. What I wrote was completely off. It was logical, believable, and wrong. After submitting it, I thought I should have included that famous line about complex problems having simple answers that are completely wrong — a point I did prove. Another way of saying it, it was


Tesla Deliveries Up 110% In Q1 2019 vs. Q1 2018

April 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tesla delivered 110% more vehicles in the 1st quarter of 2019 versus the 1st quarter of 2018. The Q1 2019 delivery total was approximately 63,000. That said, the deliveries were 31% less than the 4th quarter of 2018, due in part to a high number of vehicles in transit, over 10,


Look Out, Germany — The Tesla Model 3 Is Coming (Video)

January 5th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

It's hard to argue that Germany isn't the heartbeat of automotive excellence. That said, an invader is coming (soon) to its home turf. According to Automotive News Europe, "Tesla will start the European rollout of its Model 3 in February, putting pressure on German premium brands that have seen the Model S outsell flagship sedans such as the Mercedes-Benz S class."


1/5 Luxury Cars Sold in USA in 2018 = Tesla Model 3 or Tesla Model S

January 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In the month of December, Tesla sold more luxury cars than all other automakers. In fact, it accounted for approximately 30% of luxury car sales. Tesla sold more luxury sedans than BMW and Audi combined, more than Mercedes-Benz and Lexus combined. It absolutely crushed the luxury car competition
