A long battle in Montréal (Canada) between two international bus companies with a penchant towards autonomous e-mobility has finally ended. The Keolis et Transdev (Keolis vs Transdev) is over for now, as Keolis was selected to deploy its autonomous electric minibus. It will test its Navya shuttle for one year in real-life conditions.
In a recent interview with Business Insider’s Matthew DeBord, Jonas talks about Tesla’s “insane” market capitalization, how other automakers see the upstart company, and Tesla’s future place in the transportation realm.
The Tesla Model 3, the most anticipated all-electric vehicle from the visionary Silicon Valley automaker, was spotted again, this time by a determined fan. On Saturday, a Model 3 sighting occurred with a fan’s peek through a chain-link fence. The amateur photographer “decided to take a nice Saturday drive to the Tesla Fremont factory [and] found the test track.”
To accomplish Tesla’s mission of electrifying the world’s transportation system, Elon Musk is planning to build a lot more than just luxury sedans and SUVs. As Tesla begins to expand its product line beyond its high-end niche with the Model 3, it is worth taking a step back to understand where we sit in Tesla’s broader vision. Although Tesla has only brought 3 cars to market (Roadster, Model S, and Model X), it has developed very advanced electric drivetrain, battery, and self-driving technology. Tesla is now in the process of leveraging this technological expertise to enter many new product categories.
I had the opportunity to sit down with BMW NA’s top man when it comes to electric vehicles, Jose Guerrero, at this year’s New York International Auto Show. Guerrero is BMW i’s North American Product & Operations Manager, and has been working in BMW’s electric vehicle programs since the ActiveE pilot program began in 2011.
Not only does Tesla make waves on Wall Street, it’s also become a highly coveted car inside exclusive celebrity circles. And why not — it’s cars are glamorous, stunning, and eco-friendly too.
By Nicolas Zart Electric vehicles (EVs) are common these days in the news. Electric motorcycles have also popularized the concept of the electric drivetrain, and electric bicycles (e-bikes) are furiously changing the landscape. However, the last frontier is the air, as we covered with our Hamiton aEro story. Electric aircraft are taking off (pun intended), and the Kirkland, […]
The electric bus wave is upon us and cities are very eager to use them to paint a greener face. Companies such as BYD and Proterra are taking center stage and bitterly fighting for this new lucrative market. In fact, both romanced the city of Long Beach in California (my home base) for some time. The BYD K9 edged out the latter, so we are exploring it in more detail.
In a previous article on CleanTechnica, I dissed the Lucid Motors Air introduction as yet another electric vehicle (EV) hypercar. Boy, was I wrong! An EV hypercar it is, and a real one at that.
On Tuesday, we looked at the unveiling of the wildly impressive Lucid Motors Air at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles. The Air’s performance was already noteworthy on paper, but my test ride was beyond expectations. I haven’t been this happy about a new electric vehicle, EV since the unveiling of the Tesla Model S P90D, and before that, the Roadster and AC Propulsion’s eBox.
A guy walks into a local Chevy dealer. Says, “Hey, you guys got any Bolts? That’s Bolt, with a B.” In return, the guy receives blank stares from the sales staff … replaced shortly by smiles, a negatory on the Bolt, and a verbal rundown of all the great models on the lot the guy would just love, such as the Cruze, the Sonic, the Malibu, and yes, the Volt. The Spark went unmentioned.
One of the most frequent questions you see these days in electric vehicle forums, blog comments, Facebook groups, and here on CleanTechnica is some variation of the following:
“I reserved my Tesla Model 3 on (fill the date), will I still be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit when my car becomes available?”
Should TeslaMondo return to TSLA or stick with NVDA even through the Model III unveil? Which stock has the strongest legs for 2017?
No, not tunnels.

I do mostly pleasure boating and enjoy boating with a few exceptions: Waiting in line for other boaters to finish fueling Expensive repairs and lack of qualified mechanics Frequent maintenance The noise The smell The polluting of our lakes I decided […]
