Morgan Stanley Analyst Predicts Tesla To Offer “Uber Like” Service Before Model 3 Unveiled

In a rather interesting prediction, the Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas has stated that he expects Tesla to officially unveil an “Uber like” service — well, a service intended to compete in the same market anyways — before the official unveiling of the Model 3 (currently slated for March 2016). It should be noted here that the exact words […]

Electric Vehicle Revolution Scenarios

Via CleanTechnica: By Mike Barnard A tipping point has been reached in the last two years for electric cars. Almost half of all fully or partially electric vehicles sold in the past decade were sold in 2014. In addition to the standard-bearing Tesla, every car manufacturer in the world has fully or partially electric cars […]

Tesla Model X Price, & Model 3 Plan — Elon Musk Has To Inform Lame Media

OK, it may be too much to call the mainstream media lame — it probably doesn’t have the time or money to closely track all of Tesla’s* activities and announcements in a careful fashion. (After all, it’s just a Fortune 100 company disrupting the gigantic auto industry.) Getting to the story, though, as I wrote […]

Tesla Owners Did Some Serious Upgrading

Following every post in the Tesla Motors Club forum, there’s a lot of stuff that simply isn’t interesting (as is the case with any product forum). But it’s well worth it for all of the interesting gems I find there (and as a potential future Tesla owner and a current Tesla investor). One of the […]

EV Revolution = Disruption, Not Simply Incremental Transition

Technology changes fast these days. How many iterations of cell phones or computers have we now lived through? How quickly have music-playing mediums changed? But there’s a big difference between incremental changes in technology and “disruptive” technology shifts. A transition from cassette tapes to CDs was one thing, but a transition to MP3 players was something […]

Tesla Following Ford Model T Production Trend (Sort of)

A big tip of the hat to Bloomberg for uncovering the interesting point that Tesla sales are basically tracking the sales ramp-up of the Ford Model T (and to TeslaMondo, where I found this story). Bloomberg nicely summarizes things in the following video, so I’ll start with that and a screenshot from it: So, basically, it’s […]

Tesla Financials Call — 40 Highlights

Tesla Motors released its latest quarterly shareholder letter and hosted its quarterly financials call late last night (European time, since that’s where I live). As always, there were many interesting tidbits that could by themselves be individual articles. However, in the interest of not irritating the Tesla haters too much — and, more so, in keeping […]

JB Straubel (Tesla CTO) Talks About Disruptive Shift To Lithium-Ion Batteries, + More

Earlier this year, Tesla Motors CTO JB Straubel gave a presentation at the THINK 15 conference. I recently caught word of a video of his presentation and checked it out. It’s a good one (of course), so here it is for your own enjoyment, followed by some of my own notes: I love how JB explained […]

Only 30,000 Chevy Bolts A Year Because….

Originally published on Gas2. One of the biggest electric vehicle announcements of the year so far was the surprise Chevy Bolt announcement from GM in January, the revealing of an affordable, long-range electric car from a major manufacturer. This is the second “affordable” and “long-range” electric car announced by anyone, only trailing the Tesla Model […]

New Tesla Model 3 Info “Pops Up” — 0-60 MPH Time Of 4.1 Seconds

Originally published on Gas2. I’ll give you a stat from our live EV owner & lessee survey: of the initial 252 responses we’ve received, the coming electric vehicle 142 (56%) of the respondents are most excited about is the Tesla Model 3. The second-highest choice in that question is a long-range fully electric car from […]

EV Owner & Lessee Survey

I’ve been long planning to do an EV owner and lessee survey like this, so I am super eager to see the results. (I’m going to have a hard time not watching them obsessively as they come in.) But the key, of course, is getting EV owners and lessees to complete the survey. If you drive […]

Tesla’s Competitive Advantages — 5 Big Ones

Tesla has several big competitive advantages, imho. I’m going to discuss 5 below, but 3 tangible ones and 2 intangibles. [Full disclosure: I’m long TSLA… for obvious reasons.] Tesla’s huge competitive advantages, imho, are: 1) The battery supply chain it is building for itself (and maybe some friends) I thought it was obvious before, but […]

Cleantech Talk #6: Apple Electric Car, Tesla Model 3, & BYD Gigafactories

Also published on CleanTechnica & GAS2. Chris and I had a lot of fun this week running down four hot electric car stories. We had some really interesting updates regarding the Apple electric car and Tesla Model 3 to play with, as well as a huge one from BYD — plans for battery gigafactories that […]

My Responses To The Chicago Tribune

The 2016 Chevy Volt & Chevy Bolt news has woken up conventional media a bit. As one sign of that, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune (a member of the editorial board, actually) recently reached out to me to ask me a bunch of questions about electric vehicles. Naturally, I had a lot to say. As […]

Tesla CTO Presentation In Southern California

On October 10, Tesla CTO & co-founder JB Straubel gave a presentation at the Southern California Energy Summit. Unfortunately, I wasn’t at that one, but JB’s presentation was posted online, so I decided to pull out some interesting slides. For Tesla fanatics, I’m not sure if anything will be new for you (perhaps the quote […]
