Polestar 2Polestar’s entry into the electric vehicle world took the top spot this past week on CleanTechnica, being the number one article viewed on CleanTechnica thanks to the hundreds of thousands of views it pulled in. The focus of the article was its pricing, which is surprisingly high. Yet again, it seems that a new “Tesla killer” just doesn’t compete with Tesla vehicles, even though it is a nice addition to the EV market and deserves solid sales

Over 1,200 vehicles were registered and Italy saw the market share rise up to 0.9% of the total. 325 Tesla Model 3s in total were sold in September, accounting for 26% of the country’s EV sales

Perplexing Accord & Camry Buyers … 7 Year Old Tesla Model S Battery Degradation … Old Nissan LEAF vs. New Tesla Model 3 — Top 20 CleanTechnica Stories in September

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Wed, 09 Oct 2019 02:00:21 +0000

The most popular CleanTechnica article of September did not have “Tesla” in the title, but if you read the piece, you can see the story is closely tied to the Tesla Model 3. The shock I just couldn’t stop shaking was about how many people continue to buy new Toyota Camrys and Honda Accords. Compared to the Model 3, I get it — even if they have the same 5 year cost of ownership (possible), they have a lower upfront price. That said, if $100–200 a month is a dealbreaker for someone looking at these options, my opinion is that they definitely shouldn’t be buying a new car at all. But hey, that’s just my opinion

We start this month’s EV sales reports in the Netherlands. (Well, we already started there with another article, but here’s a second.) The Dutch plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market grew a whopping 281% in September compared to the same month in 2018 (year over year, or YoY). The nation had 8,067 PEV registrations, the best month ever for plug-ins aside from previous fiscal-derived peaks in December 2013 (9,304 units), December 2015 (15,908), and December 2016 (11,132). So, all points to a record performance this coming December. How much, would you say? 16,000? 20,000? More

Tesla FUD: I Was Wrong

Credit to Author: Frugal Moogal| Date: Mon, 07 Oct 2019 16:03:12 +0000

CarsA while ago, I started a semi-regular series in which I examined specific cases of Tesla FUD (or “Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt”). The plan was that I would look at a FUD topic that it seemed a ton of stock analysts were suddenly communicating about Tesla. The idea began because in my regular check-ins about how Tesla was doing, I would often find my newsfeed dominated by a bunch of writers claiming the same basic idea, and how that idea showed that Tesla was in big trouble

Tesla Model 3 = 24% of Small & Midsize Luxury Car Sales in USA*

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Mon, 07 Oct 2019 05:31:06 +0000

The Tesla Model 3 has taken the US luxury car market by storm. When sales soared through the roof in the second half of 2018, making the Model 3 far and away the best selling luxury car in the country and the best selling car car of any type in terms of revenue, fans were excited for the launch of a new era. Critics, on the other hand, saw it as a temporary boom from early reservation holders that would soon be over, resulting in a crash in Tesla sales, Tesla financials, and the company as a whole

McDonald’s EV Charging … Tesla Model 3 vs. Toyota Camry vs. Chevy Bolt Cost of Ownership — #CleanTechnica Top 20

Credit to Author: Zachary Shahan| Date: Mon, 07 Oct 2019 01:56:22 +0000

The most popular stories on CleanTechnica this past week were led by a McDonald’s story for the first time (or perhaps second — I remember a very popular McDonald’s story here in 2010). The second and third most popular stories were both about total cost of ownership comparisons — between the Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Camry and then the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 and Toyota Camry. Next in line were videos of Tesla Smart Summon (which went a bit viral on what the kids call “the Internet”) and a couple of pieces on how early concerns about the Model 3 and Gigafactory 3 became irrelevant

Those of us very tied into Tesla news sometimes forget that 9 out of 10 people on the street know close to nothing about Tesla. Additionally, if anything comes to mind when they are asked about Tesla, it is probably misleading FUD that originated from a Tesla smear campaign. On the other hand, practically everyone [&hellip

Tesla’s End-of-Quarter Rush — Avoidable or Unavoidable?

Credit to Author: Maarten Vinkhuyzen| Date: Sat, 05 Oct 2019 16:14:59 +0000

Tesla end-of-quarter rush is unavoidable, inevitable, inescapable, necessary, unescapable, needed. We all hate Tesla’s end-of-quarter delivery hell. It is the price Tesla pays for its direct sales model. Other companies also try to score some extra sales at the end of a period, but no one gets into a frenzy like Tesla
