Tesla Model 3 Battery Cells — What We Know So Far

Originally published on CleanTechnica. A recent post over at TMC kicked off a worthwhile discussion on the type of cells that will be used in the Model 3. Though it started with an incorrect assumption, it arrived at some fun conclusions. As the primer for the discussion, Elon had mentioned way back in 2012 on the […]

Tesla Model 3 Orders From Pre-Unveiling Event Should Be Delivered In 2017 (Elon Tweets)

A couple of days ago, he tweeted that “Tesla is increasing the production ramp as fast as possible, but I’d recommend ordering a Model 3 soon if you want 2018 delivery.” This is a reiteration of something he said […]

Lily & Zach Chat Tesla Production Target & Rooftop Solar Mandates

Originally published on CleanTechnica. I honestly love our community of readers here on CleanTechnica. But the size of everything has grown so large that I can’t keep up with Twitter, Google+, Facebook, or even email. I’ve tried and tried and tried. Additionally, while a spend a ton of time in the comments under our articles, […]

Another Tesla Conference Call Summary (Fun One)

Originally published on TeslaMondo. Here’s a lean version of the Q1 conference call, without all the Hamburger Helper that clogs official transcripts. All quotes are verbatim. Everything else is TeslaMondo interpretation. Analyst: How can tiny Tesla make a profit on Model III under the shadow of big, bovine GM and its Bolt program? Seems impossible. Musk: “We’re highly confident […]

Elon Musk — Crazy? Right On?

Originally published on CleanTechnica. By Mike Barnard Elon Musk has never been accused of dreaming small dreams. Transforming all cars to run on electricity. Colonizing Mars. Even his most ardent supporters were ambivalent about whether Musk could meet these visions. Now he’s massively advanced one of his key strategic milestones related to Tesla. The quarterly shareholder letter‘s first […]

Tesla Conference Call On YouTube, + Update: Tesla’s Been Saying Fremont Could Produce Nearly 1 Million Vehicles

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Like in some previous quarters, I went ahead and put the full recording of the Q1 2016 Tesla financials conference call on YouTube. You can always listen to the conference calls on the Tesla investment portal, but it’s a clunky system and really hard to skip around to the spot you want. […]

Tesla Model S Demand 150% Higher Than Projected A Few Years Ago

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Tesla* gets a lot of love, but it also gets a lot of hate. People are very fond of highlighting that it has had a habit of missing timelines, but I think there’s a flip side of that coin that is at times directly related. The flip side is that quality […]

2016 Tesla Production Target Stays Intact

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Update: Elon just said seconds ago on the conference call that Tesla aims to become the best manufacturer in the world. The 2nd (or maybe 3rd) major point for me regarding the shareholder letter is that Tesla still has a 2016 production target of 80,000–90,000 for 2016 despite the widely discussed troubles with ramping […]

Tesla Now Aims For 500,000 Vehicles A Year … In 2018!

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Tesla just released its quarterly shareholder letter. The first item is a whopper: the company aims to move its 2020 target to produce 500,000 vehicles a year to 2018. Obviously, this is in response to the insanely (nay, ludicrously) high demand for the Tesla Model 3 (up to 400,000 reservations weeks ago, before […]

Tesla Model 3 Reservations… On A Map

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Enterprising Tesla fanatic “ocasual” took the data from http://www.model3tracker.info and decided to roll out his own map based on the data. Essentially, the resulting map takes the data in the tracker and extrapolates the distribution by country based on what has already been shared. The obvious criticism of this approach is that […]
