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 […]

Another Look At The Chevy Bolt

Originally published on CleanTechnica. While folks are anticipating the Tesla Model 3, it is time to note that the first electric car promising a range of 200+ miles and priced from the mid-$30,000s will be in production by the end of 2016 — that’s the 2017 Chevy Bolt, of course. A year or more ahead of Tesla’s Model […]

What Are The Differences Between Tesla & Chevy Volt Fans?

While the electric vehicle sector is often spoken of as a relatively homogenous entity, the truth is that there’s not necessarily that much overlap between buyers of a Tesla Model S, a Nissan LEAF, a Mahindra e2o, and a BMW i3.

Tesla Searches Skyrocket Past Audi, VW, GM, Porsche, BMW…

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Tesla is set to disrupt the heck out of the auto market, according to many of us who watch the industry closely, and search trends on Google may be one of the earliest indicators. I have tried hard to remember who passed this insight on to me, but have been unable to […]

Elon Musk Reveals That There Were 325,000 Model 3 Reservations In First Week; Tesla Rep Clarifies Model 3 Supercharger Situation; & Other Details

There were more than 325,000 Model 3 reservations made ($1,000 a pop) in the first week that reservations were open, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk. That equates to roughly $14 billion in future orders. Interestingly, less than 5% of reservation-makers put down two deposits — implying a relatively low level of speculation. Over 325k […]

Tesla Model 3 Reservation Specifics Revealed

Tesla has now released the Model 3 Reservation Agreement, allowing us to take a look at what’s actually being offered to those that place a $1000 deposit. And… it’s pretty much what most of us were expecting, with nothing binding on Tesla’s end, but fully refundable. Interestingly, but also unsurprisingly, the reservations are apparently non-transferable […]

The masses are converging on Tesla stores around the world with campers planning to stakeout the stores hours ahead of the opening time.
