Polestar Pricing … Electric Mazda … Tesla Model 3 = #6 In USA — CleanTechnica Top 20

The most popular CleanTechnica stories of October were led by Polestar and Mazda. Seriously. No offense to Polestar or Mazda (okay, some offense to Polestar and Mazda), but I wouldn’t have seen that coming a mile away. Does this show a great thirst for more EV news beyond Tesla and more serious EV entries? Possibly. Or it was just some lucky timing and catchy headlines. Or all of the above. In any case, that’s where things landed in October. Tesla still dominated the top 20, with 15 out of 20 stories, but it was an interesting phenomenon to see the company almost pushed out of the top

The Game Changers Film Hits Men Where It Hurts Most 🍆

Every few years there is a new documentary focused on the personal and planetary benefits of eating a plant-based or vegan diet. The Game Changers is the newest on this list, and it has a very specific demographic in mind:

Tesla Smart Summon Chases Kids (Video From Inside Car)

Okay, so I’m sitting in the car waiting for my whole family (husband and two little girls) to come back from a quick stop for shopping. The car is plugged in and charging at a Tesla Supercharger (thank you to buyers who used our referral code). My husband came up with a funny phrase to describe a “park & plug” state, which is “plark.” So, you could say I’m sitting in a “plarked” car in a Tesla “plarking lot.”

BMW i3 Is A Perfect Out-Of-Town EV, Smoothly Flowing Through Mountain Roads — BMW i3 vs. The Mountain (Video)

The Model 3 is the standout, Zen-of-zero-emissions electric vehicle that is meeting peoples hopes and wishes straight on. Even though I don’t have a Model 3, I’d agree with anyone singing Model 3 praises. I have ridden in one many times, and I’ve previously written about the expansive back seat experience in a Tesla Shuttle. The praise the Model 3 gets is well deserved

How The Long Drive To Frankfurt For IAA 2019 Made Me Talk To My Tesla Model 3

A few days ago I told you what I thought was going on at the IAA 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and that was quite an eye opener for me. One single model stole the show. The world of automobiles will see serious change next year, when the VW ID.3 and other similar models hit the tarmac with their wheels spinning so fast the fossil fuel slurping dinosaurs won’t know what hit them

Tesla Autopilot & Lane Change Improvements — Tesla Software V10 (Review)

As I wrote a few hours ago, Tesla’s new V10 software is rolling out to Early Access program members and I happened to land in one of those people’s cars. I wrote a quick summary and first impressions of many of the new features in that article, but it seemed like improvements to Autopilot warranted their own dedicated piece. The improvements seem to fall into two categories: 1) the visualizations for the driver, and 2) the car’s ability to naturally drive itself

Tesla’s V10 Updates — Freakin’ Awesome Home Movie Theater, Autopilot & Navigation Improvements, Joe Mode … (1st Impressions!)

I got quite lucky tonight. I was walking along Sesame Street minding my own business when I all of a sudden got plopped into a Tesla Model 3 with Tesla’s new V10 software. I know, I know — you shouldn’t talk to strangers. But when you get an opportunity like this, you just have to take it. Let’s run through the various improvements coming to Tesla vehicles in

“List of Problems” With New Tesla Model 3 … Tesla Fandom Gone Too Far … 4 Reasons We Bought Tesla Model 3 — CleanTechnica Top 20

The top 20 articles on CleanTechnica last week, in terms of views, were led by quite an interesting and surprising article. If you didn’t see it before and are now curious, just be advised that it is delivered better on a computer than a phone — and scrolling down to the comments may be worthwhile sooner than later if you’re confused

Face-Off: 2015 Nissan LEAF S vs. 2018 Tesla Model 3 LR

Tesla Model 3Last week, Arthur Driessen — the intrepid Tesla Model 3 explorer crisscrossing the United States in his Tesla Model 3 — brought his 2018 Model 3 LR to CleanTechnica’s sumptuous New England regional offices, otherwise known as Blueberry Pointe, my home in Rhode Island. Since picking up up his car in April, 2018, Arthur has put almost 90,000 miles on the car in his quest to visit every Supercharger location in the
