Electric-car noise rules to be canceled under Trump deregulation plan?

Modern electric cars have been on U.S. roads for seven years or so, and owners love their smooth, quiet, close to noise-free operation. That silence has been a bone of contention for even longer, however, since hybrids operating purely on battery power are similarly quiet. For years, the U.S. Department of Transportation was charged with drafting...

Since Tesla started the Model 3 release candidate program a few months ago, our tip line received Model 3 sightings almost daily.

Several of them were outside the US, but when it came attached with pictures, we quickly realized that the vehicle was often being confused with the Model X, which is still less familiar for a lot of people. We concluded that Model 3 has yet to make it outside the US… until now. more…

Tesla is paying for the deployment of destination AC chargers that all EVs can use

While Tesla is definitely a for-profit company with responsibilities to its shareholders, its mission to accelerate the advent of sustainable energy is an altruistic one in many ways. If you think that’s just a front, this might convince you otherwise.

We recently learned some new information about Tesla’s Destination Charging program for businesses and it is even more generous than we originally thought. more…

Tesla Roadster 3.0: the electric car that sparked a revolution, revisited

The Tesla Roadster was far from a successful vehicle program by most conventional standards. It was late, had a difficult rollout, and only roughly 2,400 units were delivered during its ~4-year production run between 2008 and 2012.

But it was successful for Tesla because it achieved its main objectives. The Roadster changed people’s perception of what electric cars can be and it helped launch or accelerate several more electric vehicle programs. In the future, when all new cars are electric, we will likely look back at the Tesla Roadster as the vehicle that sparked the automotive industry’s electric revolution. Let’s take a look at the latest iteration of this iconic vehicle… more…

Watch a Tesla Model X being put through the ‘moose test’

Last week, Tesla’s Model X officially became the highest safety rated SUV (by a significant margin) with 5-star rating in every safety category from NHTSA.

It especially performed well in the rollover test thanks to its large battery pack bolted at the bottom of the chassis – giving it a low center of gravity. That should also help the vehicle in the “moose test”, which wasn’t performed by NHTSA, but we still get to see it thanks to a Spanish car magazine. more…

EGEB: The real Energy Secretary starting a non-profit, EU ‘climate tax’, more

Electrek Green Energy Brief: A daily technical, financial and political review/analysis of important green energy news.

Obama energy secretary launches nonprofit – Ernest Moniz, who taught physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for decades before becoming energy secretary in 2013, is heading up the Energy Futures Initiative (EFI) along with two high-level staffers from his time at the Department of Energy (DOE) – Moniz seemed to do well as energy secretary for Obama. An educated man who knows energy from an academic and political standpoint. Thank you Moniz.

Panasonic HIT solar module achieves world’s best output temperature coefficient – standard silicon solar cell’s output temperature coefficient is -0.50%, which denotes a decline of 0.50% in the conversion efficiency as the module temperature rises by 1°C – Panasonic Corporation has achieved the world’s leading output temperature coefficient for mass-produced silicon photovoltaic modules, at -0.258%/°C. – This is cool. They’ve almost cut in half the efficiency losses associated with heat. I never even knew this type of research was going on. I expect to see other manufacturers do the same soon.
