The European passenger plug-in vehicle (PEV) market recorded some 48,000 registrations in October (+46%), and this time it was the plug-in hybrids (+75% growth year over year, or YoY) that pulled the PEV market up.

Open The Plug-In Hybrid Floodgates! Germany EV Sales Report

Something clicked in the German plug-in vehicle market after the summer holidays. The market had a record month (9,452 registrations) in September, and then October came and set a new record, this time 26% above the previous one! 11,926 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) were registered, more than doubling last year’s result.

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

Tesla Model 3 Revenue Laps USA Small & Midsize Luxury Competitors — Q3 2019 CleanTechnica Report

As you’ll see in this article, Tesla Model 3 revenue dwarfed its luxury car competition in the 3rd quarter, and also placed it #3 among all sedans sold on the US market. Wall Street’s interpretation: “Tesla Model 3 is a failure. As ivory tower Wall Street analysts, we expected Model 3 luxury revenue to be double the revenue of any other sedan at this time.”

Fresh Buyer’s Guide For Used Electric Cars

I drive a used EV. It’s the best car I’ve ever driven. The most energy efficient, lightest footprint vehicle (except my bicycle) I’ve owned, and I love the instant torque. It is smooth and safe. Best of all — it does not smell like gas vehicles, which give me headaches

Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, & Renault Electric Models That Could Reach 10,000 Sales A Month?

We write many articles about Tesla for two core reasons: 1) it is pushing the transportation sector toward zero-emission transportation faster than any other company (and is perhaps the most important company in the world for decarbonizing the economy), and 2) it makes really amazing products
