Man To Chevy Dealer: “Hey, You Got Any Bolts?”

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.

Tesla To Open Store In UAE Next Month (Exclusive)

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) seems like an ideal place for Tesla Motors. Clearly, the country has money, and people with money can afford Teslas — which nearly everyone seems to want. Additionally, UAE leadership — despite making a fortune and a half on oil & gas — seems to be keenly aware that the future is cleantech, and the future is coming faster than a Tesla Model S P100D.

Deputy Ruler Of Dubai Has Tesla Supercharger & Model S (Exclusive)

I landed a couple of pretty interesting scoops today while in Abu Dhabi for Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week. First of all, I found out that Tesla is opening a store in the UAE next month — it’s unclear if the store will be in Abu Dhabi or Dubai or both cities. That was expected for a long time, though, especially given that the backdrop of Dubai has appeared in some Tesla advertising.

Electric Car Sales Grew 51% In December & 30% In 2016 (US Electric Car Sales Report)

The EV market as a whole saw 30% growth for 2016 (compared to 2016) and 51% for December 2016 (compared to December 2015), which would be great for normal cars but may seem a bit weak on the surface for those of us who know how fast EV sales should and could be growing. But remember that 2016 was more of a prep year than a breakout year. This year (2017) and next (2018) are likely to be the big breakout years, thanks to the real arrival of the Chevy Bolt and the expected arrival of the Tesla Model 3.

Donald Trump Reportedly Owns A Tesla

Owing to some recent comments that I heard concerning President-Elect Donald Trump possibly coming down hard on Tesla Motors once he takes office, I figured it was worth posting a note here … Trump apparently owns a Tesla (amongst a great many other cars, no doubt). That assertion stems from the fact that his campaign told the […]

Europe Electric Car Sales — BMW i3 #1 Again

This article is also being published on CleanTechnica, the EV Sales blogspot, and our Electric Car Sales page. The European EV market had more than 18,500 registrations last month, 5% down over the same month last year. This sales slip has to do with the incentives-derived sales rush in the last quarter of 2015 in some […]

Rimac Concept_One vs Bugatti Veyron (Video)

It’s been a while since we’ve posted any videos of the Rimac Concept_One in action. Probably too long for the taste of some. … So, it seems worth posting the video below of the Rimac Concept_One going “head to head” with a Bugatti Veyron on a route along the scenic Croatian coastline. As the race […]

The pros (according to the review): A market-leading range, Autopilot, and the extensive nearly unique (in a production vehicle) tech options.
