Tesla Model Y

Is The Ford Mustang Mach E A Tesla Killer?

Now that the specs of the Mustang Mach E have been leaked (we got them as well but decided to follow the rules and not leak them), most articles are interested in how it compares to the Model Y. It’s going to be other items that differentiate the two cars and determine which one people are more comfortable with and decide to buy. Instead of listing all the ways the cars are similar, I’m going to list the ways they are different

Tesla Gigafactory 3 Has ~7,000 Battery Packs In Stock For Chinese Model 3 Production, Will Use LG Chem Cells In 2020

Tesla’s Gigafactory 3 was built in a hurry because both China and Tesla had a lot to prove to the world, and if anyone was betting against Elon, they lost and joined a very long list of people who doubted Musk and were proven wrong

Breaking!  Tesla Model Y Production to Start ~Q1 2020 (Unofficial Leak)

This information is going to cause some controversy, because everything we knew, or thought we knew, about Tesla’s Model Y timeline is about to change.  Originally, the Model Y was supposed to start shipping in “late 2020.”  Currently, Tesla’s website…

Tesla Model Y Prototype Spotted On Road Near Tesla HQ (VIDEOS)

Model Y, the affordable, all-electric crossover from Tesla’s stable, is not expected to hit the roads until late 2020. But Tesla is already laying the groundwork for the model that will forever alter Tesla’s position in the automotive world

Tesla Model Y Transformer, Easter Eggs, & Halloween Magic

halloweenIt’s October, which means that for most people that fall is in full swing. Leaves crunch underfoot as the scents of apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg mingle to warm our senses as the temperatures dip. I did say for most people. Those of us in the South are still experiencing higher than average temperatures, so we can only sip our pumpkin spice lattes and apple ciders wrapped up in thick blankets if we have the air conditioner on full blast

Tesla Model 3 & Model Y Are Legitimately Disruptive — What Should Automakers Do?

The world is changing. It always is, but the change is particularly dramatic right now in certain technology sectors. To a normal person’s eyes, changes in the auto industry may seem only incremental. Cars are getting a bit more “connected,” more people are using 21st century taxis from Uber and Lyft (please don’t call this ridesharing), and some people are driving electric cars. But we ain’t seen nothing yet

2020 — The Year Of The Tesla Model Y & Other ICE-Killing Crossovers

I’m a big fan of the Tesla Model Y. I’ve written about the Model Y’s 3rd row being the key to it becoming the best selling vehicle in the world, the Model Y beating the Lamborghini Urus (which is over 3 times the price), styling tricks that Tesla used to make an SUV looks like a performance sedan, and most recently Tesla cutting Model Y prices

How Many Electric Vehicles Will Tesla, Volkswagen, & Nissan Sell In 2020–2025?

We write about Tesla a lot because it is pushing, pulling, and tickling the auto industry forward. It is a wild success story like we’ve never before seen in cleantech, have perhaps never really seen in the auto industry, and has been sorely needed in US manufacturing. Nonetheless, Tesla is one corner of a big puzzle on transportation electrification. The challenging question has been, who’s going to follow Tesla’s lead

The Electric Age — Why The 2020s Will Be A Defining Decade For Tesla

It has become crystal clear in the recent democratic debates that combating climate change is a central focus of the Democratic Party, and governments around the world as a whole. The growing pressure of climate change can’t be ignored, and lawmakers are working toward solutions. These plans will be daunting for established auto manufacturers to adapt to, essentially having to reshape their entire business models to conform with new regulations. In stark contrast, Tesla is in the unique position that it has not only embraced changing times, but built its entire business around them

Tesla Slashes Model Y Prices To Reflect Last Few Model 3 Cuts — Detailed Look

Tesla had made several pricing changes to the Model 3 since the Model Y was unveiled, and the company hadn’t updated the pricing and configurations in the Model Y Design Studio to reflect that until yesterday
