The Tesla Roadster turns 10 this year, which has given many owners plenty of time to think about what they like about the car in this new documentary.
The Tesla Roadster is ten years old this year. Much has changed since then, but the desire to wean the world off fossil fuels remains at the core of everything Tesla does.
In our 4th article pulled from Electric Cars: What Early Adopters & First Followers Want — a new report from CleanTechnica, EV Obsession, and GAS2 — I’m jumping into which electric car models respondents were most likely to buy and most excited, as well as some implications regarding certain car companies. Without surprise, current EV ownership matched historical EV sales fairly well — 33.9% […]

But it’s well worth it for all of the interesting gems I find there (and as a potential future Tesla owner and a current […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. Another recent poll on the Tesla Motors Club (TMC) forum is super interesting to me. The pollster asked about whether respondents’ households were 100% electric or included gasoline-powered cars as well. Being a survey on the TMC forum, I’m sure the majority of respondents were Tesla owners, and that means they […]
Though its been about three years since the last Tesla Roadster was built, the electric automaker has decided that its earliest adopters should benefit from advances in battery technology too.

Originally published on Sustainnovate. Following up on my articles on the history of solar power science, history of solar power policy, history of solar power manufacturing, history of wind turbines, and history of trains, here’s a piece on the history of electric cars.

Electric vehicles may be good for the environment, but they are proving even better for performance junkies. The Energica Ego electric superbike is just one example of taking mechanical performance to the next level, taking on all comers in this promotional video following a successful “Where is my Ego?” world tour. The opponents for the […]
Originally posted on EVObsession Though Elon Musk may be the primary shareholder and CEO of Tesla Motors, he didn’t get intimately involved until a few years after its founding.

Wannabe electric car maker Detroit Electric has already been delayed a couple of times, and its Tesla Roadster knockoff feels just a bit unimaginative. But its greatest offense may be moving its headquarters to Leamington Spa, UK, where it just opened its first flagship store. And well, it does look pretty neat. Detroit Electric went […]
Last year Elon Musk promised an upgrade to the battery of the Tesla Roadster, and in December the first details of the “Roadster 3.0” came out.

Elon Musk has raised the bar with a “nearly” 400-mile battery pack upgrade for the out-of-production Tesla Roadster. Welcome to the age of upgradeable cars.
