Tesla [TSLA] FUD: Demand

November 5th, 2019 | by Frugal Moogal

I wasn't planning on writing this article originally. However, after the incredibly positive Tesla Q3 earnings call, Tesla released its 10Q document with more detail and it started a whole new round of debate from analysts centered around a few things, the biggest being that sales in the United States fell 39% in the third quarter compared to a year ago


J.B. Straubel Meets With Tesla Owners In China

November 5th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

In July, CNBC reported that J.B. Straubel was leaving the executive ranks of Tesla, and many seemed to think that meant he quit Tesla completely. The truth is, though, he is still at Tesla and recently met with the Tesla Owners Club of China


Tesla’s Growth Will Increasingly Be Powered By International Markets

November 5th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Tesla’s third-quarter results came as a big surprise to Wall Street — the stock soared in the days following the earnings release. Apart from the unexpected profits, there were several important facts that emerged from the report for investors. For instance, while Tesla’s revenue grew strongly in overseas markets, revenue dropped at double-digit rates in the United States


Tesla Model S Plaid Prototype Laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 7:13

November 5th, 2019 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

Respected German publication Auto Motor und Sport is reporting that the Tesla Model S Plaid prototype has been hand-timed lapping the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 13 seconds, according to the outlet's local source. Adjusting for race-compound tires, this puts the Tesla around 19 seconds ahead of the Taycan Turbo's 7:42 lap time reported by Porsche in August. It's also faster than every gas-powered 4-door series production car 'round the 'ring


Polestar Pricing … Electric Mazda … Tesla Model 3 = #6 In USA — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of October were led by Polestar and Mazda. Seriously. No offense to Polestar or Mazda (okay, some offense to Polestar and Mazda), but I wouldn't have seen that coming a mile away. Does this show a great thirst for more EV news beyond Tesla and more serious EV entries? Possibly. Or it was just some lucky timing and catchy headlines. Or all of the above. In any case, that's where things landed in October. Tesla still dominated the top 20, with 15 out of 20 stories, but it was an interesting phenomenon to see the company almost pushed out of the top


A Message To The Tesla Community

November 4th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

I saw a thread on Twitter with a message to the Tesla community that I think needs to be taken to the next level. It's a thread from Bonnie Norman, a Tesla shareholder and Tesla owner. Bonnie is reminding us that our actions matter, too. Every tweet, every action, every interaction we have online — it matters


Tesla Bulls Warned Tesla Shorts — 5 Key Warnings

November 4th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

As you may have seen, Tesla recently showed another quarterly profit, which apparently shocked the market enough that the Tesla [TSLA] stock price shot up. I don't follow the stock closely, but I am a shareholder and find the whole "Tesla bull vs Tesla short" debate quite fascinating. I've had several thoughts on the stock and these different investment communities in the past week, but the one that shot to the front most quickly and strongly was simple: TSLA bulls warned the TSLA shorts


Electric Mazda … Porsche vs. Tesla Launchonanza … Gold-Free Perovskite Solar — CleanTechnica Top 20

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Mazda? Mazda? A possibly lame-ass electrification effort from Mazda? Yes, apparently, that was somehow our most popular article of the week last week here on CleanTechnica. Will more than 100,000 people consider — let alone buy — the electric Mazda? I doubt it! But they'll read about it. (Granted, Tina's headline must have been part of the appeal, and I did think from the headline the car was going to be edible in some way.)


Tesla Autopilot Sees A Person In All Black Crossing At Night (Video)

November 3rd, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Autopilot sees something different in the moving shadows, something that the naked eye of a human barely catches in the early hours of the morning or late at night. It is dark and rainy, conditions that can create low visibility. What may actually be a person jaywalking could be seen as a moving shadow by the naked eye of a sluggish driver


Tesla Model 3 Trunk Organizer & Frunk Cooler From EVANNEX — CleanTechnica Review

November 3rd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We recently received a Tesla Model 3 trunk organizer and a frunk/trunk cooler from EVANNEX. Aside from floor mats to protect the original Tesla-installed flooring, I consider these the top two Model 3 aftermarket items that just about everyone could benefit from. (Though, pneumatic trunk and frunk hood openers have me drooling, and I do have some other fun aftermarket products to review.)


Tesla Model 3 Revenue Laps USA Small & Midsize Luxury Competitors — Q3 2019 CleanTechnica Report

November 2nd, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

As you'll see in this article, Tesla Model 3 revenue dwarfed its luxury car competition in the 3rd quarter, and also placed it #3 among all sedans sold on the US market. Wall Street's interpretation: “Tesla Model 3 is a failure. As ivory tower Wall Street analysts, we expected Model 3 luxury revenue to be double the revenue of any other sedan at this time.”


Tesla Eye Candy: South Florida “Tesla Cars & Coffee” Event

November 2nd, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Signature Custom Wraps recently held a "Cars and Coffee" event for Tesla owners — EVANNEX was a proud sponsor and excited attendee! Local owners from all over the state of Florida came out to enjoy coffee, cookies, and some the most tricked-out Teslas in the area. There was a raffle with EVANNEX products, a Tesla Wall Charger, and many other fun goodies


EV Motor Control 101

November 2nd, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Editor's Note: The team at Mountain Pass Performance are doing some truly cutting edge work and research on EV motor controls. They put together a comprehensive post on EV motors with some help from Chris Brune at Rinehart Motion Systems and were nice enough to let us repost it here. 


Two Solar-Powered Teslas

November 1st, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

In late 2012, I went to the Miami International Auto Show and had my first experience in a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). My brother-in-law and I took a ride in a Fisker Karma inside the Miami Beach Convention Center. It was an amazing opportunity to experience the future of transport, as we glided silently through a short indoor track
