Tesla May Share Superchargers With Other Manufacturers

Electric cars would be more attractive to prospective buyers if charging stations were more ubiquitous, and Tesla understands that, hence its construction of the Supercharger network. The Superchargers, which charge way faster than other chargers, are for Tesla cars. However, Tesla has said it is open to the idea of sharing the Superchargers with cars of other brands. […]

7-Question EV Survey

So, below is a quick survey to fill in these […]

Tesla: Supercharger Use For Road Trips Has Quintupled

Tesla Motors has been rapidly installing its Superchargers across the United States, and it is clearly bent on covering the whole country, but how often do people actually use them? I don’t know how often people actually use them. However, Tesla announced that usage rates for road trips exploded by a factor of 5 since last summer. Why? Tesla […]

500th Tesla Supercharger Installed

It’s crazy to think about. Fewer than 3 years ago, there were no Superchargers. Today, Tesla opened Supercharger #500 — in Moers, Germany. Incidentally, it is the same day that Consumer Reports revealed the Tesla P85D had broken its rating system, achieving 103 out of 100 points. The Supercharger network, something Tesla either didn’t think was that critical […]

Wireless EV Charging That Could Compete With A Tesla Supercharger?

Originally published on EV Obsession. What do you say to the idea of a commercial wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging system that can recharge a battery as fast as one of Tesla’s Supercharger stations can? Does that sound plausible to you? While skepticism seems merited in this case, one of Momentum Dynamics’ researchers (John M […]

Airbnb & Tesla Become Friends

Interestingly, right after a couple of us in the electric vehicle community put some words in with Airbnb to enhance the consumer experience for electric vehicle drivers, it has announced a partnership with Tesla. I’m sure the partnership didn’t come about in under one week, so I’m sure it’s coincidence more than anything else, but interesting […]

Electric Car Survey For Non-Owners & Non-Lessees

Our survey of electric car owners and lessees went very well, with 800 people completing the survey! A couple of years ago, I think we wouldn’t have gotten half that number. But now is time for the really big one — a survey of wannabe electric car owners/lessees! (If you don’t yet own or lease an electric car […]

Electric Disruption Should Be Taken Seriously

Originally published on EV Obsession. Technology changes fast these days. How many iterations of cell phones or computers have we now lived through? How quickly have music-playing mediums changed? But there’s a big difference between incremental changes in technology and “disruptive” technology shifts. A transition from cassette tapes to CDs was one thing, but a transition […]
