The top 20 articles on CleanTechnica last week, in terms of views, were led by quite an interesting and surprising article. If you didn’t see it before and are now curious, just be advised that it is delivered better on a computer than a phone — and scrolling down to the comments may be worthwhile sooner than later if you’re confused. Aside from that top story, there were pieces on Tesla fandom going too far, 4 reasons I recently bought a Tesla Model 3, the “80–20 Rule” and how it might apply to Tesla Full Self Driving, good wind power news from the US Department of Energy, and Aptera coming back to town with an electric car concept.
Personally, my 7 favorite articles of the week (well, aside from these six articles about our new Model 3) were: this in-depth article on the value of Tesla’s vertical integration, Paul’s piece on Tesla’s potential in Asia beyond China, Jose’s latest Europe EV sales report, Kyle’s useful article on Tesla Insurance, my article on Tesla’s “game of pennies” actually being a game of $billions, a podcast with Tomek Gać on the electric van offerings on the market, and Andy’s piece comparing a regional road trip with a Nissan LEAF versus a Peugeot iOn.
