Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Thu, 21 Nov 2019 06:00:14 +0000

There’s a lot of temptation to compare the Ford Mustang Mach-E to the Tesla Model Y. Indeed, they’re basically in the same class, are in the same price range, have similar specs, and are both electric. Furthermore, Ford very clearly picked up a number of features and design cues from Tesla — even being the first to do so in some cases

As I noted in my prior article, when I wrote the first article in this series, I intended to take a quick historical look at one industry and then move on to diving into some of today’s automakers to see what risk the EV revolution had to their business. I still do intend to do that, but the comments in the first article pointing out flaws with the Kodak comparison made me want to do some further dives into historical industry disruptions

In this article, I’ll talk about how Tesla’s announcement of its CyberTruck will hurt sales of other pickup trucks, even before the truck ships its first unit. Make sure you also read Frugal Moogal’s article about the broad effects of the industry’s transition to electric vehicles and compares this transition to how other industries dealt with (or didn’t) their own transitions. Frugal also wrote an article that is more specific, dealing with the Mustang’s effect on Ford

Tesla Cybertruck tl;dr Preview: Elon Likes To Crush The Competition

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Thu, 21 Nov 2019 00:10:09 +0000

Tesla pickup conceptFor better or worse, consumers (also known as “people”) typically organize products in their heads using simple descriptors or tags. Pre-Tesla, electric cars were not that well known. Among those who knew what an electric car was, the prevailing summary of them was that they were slow like golf carts, geeky, and only for a certain (weird) kind of person. Elon Musk and other early birds at Tesla blew those stereotypes out of the water

Xpeng Motors P7 Smart Coupe Sedan. Photo Xpeng MotorsThe first time I saw the Xpeng Motors P7 at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show, I knew it would rank high on my list. I recently spoke with the designers of the electric vehicle (EV) to find out their motivation and inspiration for the car’s design. What they told me was different and surprising. I was even more surprised by the way the conversation took a different direction than expected. I will be at the Guangzhou Auto Show in a few days to see the official unveiling and write more about it on CleanTechnica, but this piece covers that initial interview with the designers
