    Electric cars are much, much greener than gas cars (“gasmobiles,” as I like to call them). Even in the state with the dirtiest electricity grid (Colorado), electric cars charging from the grid have a miles per gallon equivalency of 34. The average new gasoline-powered compact car has a fuel economy rating of 28 mpg. (In the cleanest state, New York, the mpg equivalency for a standard electric car is 112.)
    However, even all of this is missing a few key points. One, a large percentage of electric car owners also have solar panels on their roofs. That makes for some super clean driving. Two, electric cars mostly charge at night, when there is often excess electricity generation occurring anyway, so they may be charging from the grid while not actually contributing any extra emissions. Three, electric cars get people thinking much more about their electricity usage, which gets many of them to install more efficient light bulbs and appliances as well as conserve electricity more. It’s apparently not that uncommon for an electric car owner to see their electricity bill drop after getting their electric car!
    Anyhow, back to the news of the day. “Sixty percent of Americans now live in regions where electric vehicles (EVs) produce fewer heat-trapping global warming emissions per mile than the most efficient hybrids, according to an updated analysis from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). In 2012, that number was just 45 percent,” UCS reported on Tuesday, as National Drive Electric Week was getting rolling.

    100% of all batteries will be sold and used. Millions of cars, millions of homes. Once the basic system is full, then we go to replacement. But I probably will be dead by then... :-)

    -the batteries will still be effective in stationary power storage. This will be a huge market and one
    -that gets little mention.
    100% spot on. And I would be a user of those used batteries.

  • Oldie but goldie!

    During a speech at the 5th Annual Energy Storage Symposium, Tesla's Chief Technology Officer JB Straubel gave a keynote speech that was very revealing about how Tesla sees itself and where it sees opportunities in the future. Elon Musk has always said that his reason for creating Tesla and SolarCity was that he wanted to catalyze both the production and consumption of clean energy. It looks like Tesla will have a role to play not only in the consumption part (moving transportation from oil to electricity), but also in the storage of renewable energy, which often comes from intermittent sources like wind and solar. The battery Gigafactory will of course play a big role in that, with a certain amount of its production going to stationary energy storage devices and not electric cars, but Tesla isn't just planning to make battery. It's designing the whole storage systems - which is part of its expertise thanks to its EVs - and plans to scale them up quite a bit.

    It's already testing a 2 megawatt-hour battery pack (see below) at its electric car factory in Fremont, California, and plans to scale it up to 4 megawatt-hour within a few months. The current 2 MWh pack is enough to handle 10% of the factory's peak demand, which can lead to savings if you charge it up off-peak when electricity is cheaper.

  • This could become reality very soon.
    Tesla CEO Elon Musk told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday that Tesla’s fully autonomous cars will be far safer than human drivers when they hit the market within five to six years.
    “They will be a factor of 10 safer than a person [at the wheel] in a six-year time frame,” Musk said.
    He said “machine vision,” or the car’s ability to identify an object and take the right course of action, is the biggest issue slowing the release of fully autonomous cars. There are also some regulatory issues that needs to be solved that could delay the production another few years, he said.
    Musk’s six-year timeline for a fully autonomous vehicle is pretty ambitious compared to some of his competitors. General Motors, for example, has indicated it would be ready to offer autopilot systems — not fully autonomous cars — by 2020, which controls parts of the driving, like only on the highways. Tesla’s goal for autopilots is 2016.
    During the interview, Musk also said Tesla is on pace to “generate strong free cash flow” by the third quarter of 2015. Free cash flow is the amount of cash left for a company after taking out all the required costs and expenditures, which allows companies to pursue new opportunities.
    Musk said much of the free cash flow will be spent on building its Gigafactory, the advanced battery plant that could cost more than $5 billion.

  • Have we just seen the first crack in the facade of auto-dealer opposition to Tesla Motors selling cars directly to retail buyers?
    An opinion piece in auto-industry trade journal Ward's Auto concludes with the following remarkable sentences:
    We can keep Tesla busy defending what are basically nuisance suits.
    But it will prevail in all states one at a time. Or there will be some sort of sweeping federal action in its favor.
    With the feisty title of "Who's Afraid of Elon Musk?", the piece is written by regular Ward's commenter Jim Ziegler, president of Ziegler Supersystems in Atlanta.
    He describes himself a trainer, commentator and public speaker on dealership issues.
    The laws that dealers are using were originally put in place to protect franchised dealers against competition from the carmakers whose vehicles they sell.
    Tesla has no franchised dealers, of course, so state dealer associations have worked over four years to expand the law to prevent any carmaker from selling direct to consumers under any circumstances--a very different application of the law.
    But given the ensuing state-by-state battles waged by auto-dealer bodies against Tesla's direct-sales model, the admission in Ziegler's commentary seems quite remarkable.

    model 3 Cost to be 50k is a joke

    That is why Elon Musk is a billionaire and the writer is writing for a few bucks... :-)

    I truly wish. But unfortunately there is no aftermarket, just noise. But it could happen any time, any day, without warning.

  • So some of those rich cars going down the strip, will be Teslas
    Until last week, it was illegal for a Nevada resident to purchase a Tesla directly from the manufacturer.
    But who could have guessed that the Silver State's auto dealers would help usher Tesla into the state?

    As Nevada lawmakers celebrated luring billionaire Telsa CEO Elon Musk's factory to the Reno area, critics and supporters of the deal debated the long-term benefits of businesses playing states against each other to secure tax breaks in return for promises of job creation and development. It is also worth noting, though, how the compact exposes the hypocrisy of state laws that ban consumers from buying a new car from anybody but a licensed dealer.
