Solar Powered Nissan Leaf — Video Update!

October 27th, 2019 | by Cynthia Shahan

CleanTechnica and EVObsession appreciate the innovative, including early EV adopters. Although we support the wonders of icons such as Elon Musk and his oh so Zen Teslas, we also value every other EV. Being an old organic farmer raised in innovative cultures of do-it-yourself lifestyles, I certainly value action-oriented individuals such as Sam Elliot. Sam is one of the doers not afraid of smaller range EVs to live the zero-emissions way of life. His innovative work helping him to use a smaller-range EV without that any range anxiety is one to be validated and cheered


Tesla Improves Used Vehicle Listings With Actual Photos (Finally!)

April 30th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

Ever browsed Tesla's used car listings? If so, you've surely noticed that the company wouldn't show you the actual car — just stock photos of the models. Now, at last, Tesla has added photos of the actual car being sold to some of its used vehicle listings


Former Tesla Employees Launch 1st Used Electric Car Retailer

January 1st, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Salespeople in car dealerships tend to push buyers towards gas-powered cars. Electric vehicles, in contrast, typically get low priority. But two former Tesla employees are setting out to change that with a new concept for an auto retailer that, instead, is setting out to embrace electric cars

December 5th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Making electric vehicles affordable (and fun!) has been one of the foundational goals of Tesla and it has officially delivered on the goal of selling a $35,000 Tesla today. There are a few used Model S on its website that are hovering around the $35,000 mark, with one that can be had for just a hair less ... as I write this


7 Reasons To Not Buy A Tesla … Yet

November 24th, 2018 | by Paul Fosse

I've written a lot of articles about how great and affordable the Tesla Model 3 is, and I truly believe it has the potential to become one of the best selling cars of all time. Does that mean it is the right car for everyone? No — although it must be enjoyable for everyone to drive (or not drive, once the full-self-driving software is available), it just isn't the right car for everyone


Tesla Model 3 Standard Range vs. Best of the Rest – Which Affordable EV to Choose?

September 16th, 2018 | by Dr. Maximilian Holland

In the coming months, with some timing and volume variations by region, you will be able to choose from many affordable, generous range, compelling, and all-around-capable EVs that are coming on to the market. Whilst the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range is arguably the most keenly anticipated of the bunch, all of these EVs are great cars, much better than any fossil fuel vehicle (FFV) equivalent


Fact vs. Fiction: Public Perception Of Used EVs vs. The Facts

December 16th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Yesterday, two women engaged me in conversation asking questions about driving an all-electric car (since I drive a Nissan LEAF). They were mystified and then happily surprised when I alleviated a few misconceptions about electric vehicles. Most of the time when I'm in a discussion about EVs, it's because I'm charging and people walk up curious about them. In general, people seem to become much more interested once the facts on driving EVs become clear

In this article, Lyubov Artemenko, COO of To-U and Strategic Planning Director of Tesla Club Ukraine, and Nazar Shymone-Davyda, CEO of To-U and owner of Tesla Club Ukraine, answer a handful of questions I toss their way. Well worth the read!

July 13th, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Used electric vehicles are an amazing value for the money right now. With the market for new EVs showing record sales, it's perhaps easy to forget that some of the best buys are on the used market. A press release reports that the overall used market for electric vehicles has increased 7% this year in the
