April 13th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

The Hagerty Group was “built by people who love cars.” Since its 1984 founding, it has grown into one of the world’s foremost providers of insurance for collectible vehicles. The company’s web site offers a wealth of information and resources for connoisseurs of the automobile


With Full Self Driving Evolution, Elon Musk Believes Your Tesla’s Value Will Appreciate — Interview Video

April 12th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

In a must-watch interview with MIT artificial intelligence researcher, Lex Fridman, Elon Musk has revealed that he believes the move towards Full Self Driving functionality will cause the asset value of current Tesla vehicles to appreciate, rather than depreciate. This is a game-changing contrast with traditional vehicles, which typically lose around half of their value over the initial 3 years of ownership


Tesla Model 3 Jumps To #2 In France — #CleanTechnica EV Sales Report

April 12th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The French plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market recorded 6,136 registrations in March, up 14% year over year (YoY). A big portion of this growth came from the Tesla Model 3, which had 1,153 deliveries last month, the best result ever for a nameplate not called "Renault Zoe."


Tesla Shorts Go Completely Off The Deep End

April 11th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Does Tesla have some sort of magical powers? Not only does it produce cars that seem too good to be true, but the company seems to have a way of making those who bet against it lose all perspective (the same may be true of some of the more rabid fans). When TSLA stock recently plunged on the news of disappointing deliveries in the first quarter, some of the pundits who cater to the short-selling crowd went far beyond their usual pessimistic predictions, venturing into the realm of personal attacks and wild allegations completely unsupported by facts


Tesla Bioweapon Defense Mode With Memory, Smart Powerwall Storm Watch, & Tesla’s Software DNA

April 9th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

A few weeks ago, a Rich Stefani tweeted something to Elon Musk. Highlighting just how abnormal Elon Musk's Twitter habits are — and just how atypical Elon is — he responded to this gentleman. I use the words "abnormal" and "atypical" because Rich has just 23 followers (and has only tweeted 29 times). It's not normal for a billionaire CEO with 25.6 million followers to care much about what people tweet his way, let alone respond to them. It's not typical for a billionaire CEO to spend a lot of time conversing with the unwashed masses (no offense, Rich). Though, it is typical for Elon


Tesla’s Sentry Mode Catches Construction Workers Damaging A Model 3

April 9th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

A Tesla Model 3 owner was lucky to have Sentry Mode looking out for his car when a construction crew attempting a 73 point turn bumped into the rear quarter panel of the car, leaving a dent. Thankfully, the bumping of the car triggered Sentry Mode to activate, sending a text to his phone and capturing the last minute of video from the car's cameras on his USB stick


Tesla Demonstrates Its Agility With New Homelink Option For Model 3 Owners

April 8th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla pulled back the curtains on its plan to offer lower-trimmed vehicle owners the ability to purchase incremental hardware and software updates for their vehicles today. The company just added the option to purchase a software unlock to enable its Homelink automatic garage door opener on Standard Range and Standard Range Plus trims of the Model


Tesla & Fiat Dance An Interesting Tango

April 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We occasionally joke about people who have claimed for the past 11 years that Tesla will die any day. The truth is, though, it's nearly unbelievable that Tesla has indeed survived, and how quickly it has grown to become so big and influential.Fiat has been on the flip side of the electrification story, generally eager to avoid it, deny it, defer it, and complain about it


Neuralink April 1st Story … Tesla Model 3 #1 In Europe … Tesla Model 3 Delivery Rush In China — #CleanTechnica Top 20

April 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of the past week were led by ... an April 1 joke. (It's not the first time. And it was a great article.) Other than the Neuralink joke, Tesla sales in Europe, Tesla sales in China, a solar module efficiency chart, and a global Tesla 11 Year Death Anniversary event I dreamt up attracted the most reader eyeballs


From The Founder’s Desk: The Business Of CleanTechnica

April 7th, 2019 | by Scott Cooney

Many regular readers turn to CleanTechnica as their #1 source of cleantech news. However, I'm guessing that most readers, regular or otherwise, don't give much thought beyond that. Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes here in our digital and globally dispersed offices? Or thought, "I wish CleanTechnica would do...."


Tesla Model 3 = #1 Luxury Car In USA

April 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

In the first quarter of 2019, the Tesla Model 3 was again the #1 top selling car in the US luxury car market. It was far and away the winner. It was actually #13 in the overall US car market, and no other premium-class car even made the top
