13 Reasons A Tesla Gigafactory Should Be In Poland

July 31st, 2019 | by Jacek Fior

This article was initially published in September 2018. Now that Poland has a Tesla service center (and more coming), we're rerunning it. The arguments seem as strong as ever that Poland is a nearly ideal place for a Tesla gigafactory. Furthermore, with Elon Musk's recent comments about a need/plan for 2 terawatt-hours of Tesla battery production and Chanan Bos's dive into how that could play out, this seemed like a good time to republish Jacek's article


Tesla & EV Life In Wroclaw, Poland — What’s New?

July 27th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently had our Polish Tesla Shuttle Model S for a few days (it normally lives in Cracow). I didn't expect I'd experience many new things in the car and thought I wouldn't have anything to write about, but I was wrong


Krakow To Salt Mines, Auschwitz, Zakopane, & More In A Tesla Shuttle

June 1st, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We need a rapid transition to electric transport — in order to avert climate catastrophe and cut deadly air pollution. While much driving is done in daily commutes, we at Tesla Shuttle have felt that one of the key targets is longer travel between cities


Dear Elon Musk, Consider Poland

September 3rd, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

I have decided to write this short letter to you following rumours of a Tesla factory opening in Germany. As a Tesla fan, user and campaigner, I feel somehow obliged to tell you there are better places for your European presence (not saying Germany is a bad choice, but simply that there are better). The location I have in mind, naturally, is Poland. Here are just a few reasons behind it, in random order (or not)


Wrocław — Polish Shenzhen

July 22nd, 2018 | by Jacek Fior

There seems to be some kind of attachment I feel towards Shenzhen as I have already used it as benchmark (high one!) for some Polish activities related to e-mobility. Yet again, let me use it to praise one of my favourite cities — that is Wrocław in Poland


Wroclaw’s Electric Carsharing Program Passes 30,000 Users

July 18th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

A local news report in the Polish city where I've been living for nearly 10 years highlights that our relatively fresh electric carsharing program — Vozilla — has passed 30,000 users. Before moving to Florida a month ago, I was seeing the cars — mostly Nissan LEAFs — everywhere I went


CATL Eyes Germany For New €1 Billion Factory

June 13th, 2018 | by Kyle Field

Chinese battery heavyweight CATL is reportedly looking to invest up to €1 billion into a new battery factory in Germany, according to a Bloomberg report on the matter. The move would put one of the largest plug-in vehicle battery manufacturers right in the backyard of Germany's lucrative luxury automotive manufacturers, including Daimler, Volkswagen, Porsche, and


Tesla Life In An Emerging Central European EV Market (Poland)

April 30th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

As reported a few days ago, my colleague Tomek Gać is "conquering" 12 Central & Eastern European countries in a Tesla. The home base — starting and ending country — is Poland, so we thought a handful of notes about Poland might be of use to kick things off


Always Have 2–3 Options (For EV Charging)

July 20th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Driving an electric car for a bit, I've learned what many an EV driver knows well: You should always have 3 — or at least 2 — charging options in mind. Also: Choose wisely. And get lucky

June 23rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan
