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

Regional Road Trips More Convenient In A Tesla Than A Gasmobile

One of the most persistent incorrect assumptions about electric vehicles is that they’re less convenient than gasmobiles. Actually, as long as you buy a decent modern electric car, “fueling up” will be more convenient in many — if not most — cases. As usual, your own personal details matter. There is no single answer for everyone, but there are a handful of truisms that are the building blocks of each personal story

To The Grand Canyon In A Tesla Model S

A friend of mine reached out to me with an incredible story from his friend, Tonto. Tonto went on a summer road trip to the Grand Canyon as a way to celebrate America. His trip was his own way of celebrating our freedom, and what is a better way of doing this than going on the road trip in his American-made Tesla Model

A Tale Of Two EVs

Gloucester Sth Services - M5It was nearly a year ago that I wrote an article on CleanTechnica about taking a 300 mile journey in a relatively short-range car, the Peugeot iOn, which is capable of only 50 to 70 miles at the absolute most on a single charge. The idea behind it was to say to people, “Look at me doing this. If I can do it in this little car, anyone can make use of an EV for a longer journey, especially a modern EV with 100 to 300 miles of range.” I thought it might give people more confidence to consider getting an EV, knowing it can be used for any journey, and knowing that you do not need 400 miles of range to make an EV practical for everyday use

5,400 Mile Tesla Model S Family Road Trip From Belgium To & Through Norway!

Belgian Steven Peeters recently drove his Tesla Model S on a family road trip to Norway, covering over 5,400 miles. During the journey, he made a number of videos depicting the various events along the way

Sicily To The Leaning Tower Of Pisa In An Electric Van — Nissan e-NV200

After so many adventures and kilometers (see parts one, two, and three), we were down south in Sicily for this portion of our trip. On the 7th day in the morning, with 3,300 km on the meter, we decided to give up on the southwest part of Sicily, where fast chargers were quite scarce, and we drove through the mountainous heart of the island

Does Range Anxiety Affect Gas Car Drivers More Than Tesla Drivers?

Editor’s note: Aside from the points made in the article below, something that I think non-Tesla drivers can’t appreciate (until they experience it in a Tesla) is Tesla’s navigation system for road trips. The brilliant navigation system plans out your trip and tells you where to charge and for how long. I drove a Model S from Poland to Paris and back, and my conclusion after (or during) the trip was that this navigation system actually made the journey simpler and less stressful than it would have been in a gasoline or diesel vehicle
