BMW CEO Harald Krüger has resigned his post, citing "enormous changes, which have brought about more transformation than in the previous 30 years."

The Inevitability Of The Tesla App Store

July 4th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Tesla raised the bar for the in-car infotainment experience with its massive 17" displays in the Model S and X, then flipped things on their side with a 15" landscape display in the Model 3.

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.)


Advertising Is The Last Thing Tesla Should Do

July 2nd, 2019 | by Loren McDonald

Fellow CleanTechnica writer Barry A.F. recently penned two impassioned articles explaining his arguments why Tesla should start advertising (see: Tesla Should Advertise and Tesla Should Advertise, Part Deux).

Tesla Model 3 vs. Toyota Corolla … Tesla Autopilot Lifesaver … BMW’s White Flag To Tesla — #CleanTechnica Top 20

June 30th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Last week's 20 most popular articles on CleanTechnica included one generic EV story, one solar + wind story, and 18 Tesla stories. I guarantee you, our ratio of article topics was not 18:2 (9:1) in favor of Tesla, which seems to be another indicator demonstrating that there is a tremendous amount of public interest in Tesla news and high-quality original analysis


Why Today’s Leading Automakers Should Fear Tesla

June 30th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

The purpose of this article is to challenge the narrative that is commonly heard on mainstream news sites that Tesla has sold a few cars to a few people who just care about the climate, but that Tesla doesn't know what it is doing.
