    Tesla talking to other OEM about Supercharger sharing, could well be Aston Martin.

    It looks like Tesla drivers will be sharing the Supercharger network with cars from a different company. Elon made the comments about it on at least two different occasions in Berlin. I've written a post about it for AutoblogGreen, speculating that the unnamed OEM is Aston Martin. While...

    First electric Factory Five 818 is a go!

    The first battery-powered Factory Five 818 is now driving under it's own power and is definitely worth a look, and maybe even consideration as a possible buy/build.

    Why dealership associations should be Tesla's best frenemy.

    I just had an opinion piece published on AutoblogGreen – Why dealerships should embrace Tesla's direct sales competition – that looks at the situation a bit differently than other articles I've seen. Basically I'm saying, the dealership associations have already lost this war, so they might...

    Tesla is to have a big Gigafactory announcement sometime this week. I put all I could find about it, plus some location rumors (Nevada!) in a post on AutoblogGreen. So far, the only thread for the Gigafactory is one in Investor Discussions related, of course, to the investment opportunities...

    Electric AWD UTV feature zero-radius turn awesomeness

    EVDrive built this crazy AWD UTV for an OEM which then dropped out of the program. 160 horsepower equivalent, with software that allows wheels to turn independently in any direction. It's truly awesome. Now shopping for a new client, they've released video of this thing in action. Must see EV TV.

    Organization looking for Tesla owners to participate in Springtime Tallahassee parade

    I was contacted by someone from Rethink Energy Florida who is trying to put together a contingent of electric vehicles to take part in the Springtime Tallahassee Parade. I know there's a Roadster or two in my area and I wouldn't be shocked (much) to learn there's a Model S in town. If you're...

    Penn Electric Racing's Rengade

    Penn Electric Racing is a student group who took their somewhat typical solar car program and went a little wild. The first product is the Renegade.

    Nissan Esflow concept

    Nissan will unveil an electric sports car concept at the Geneva Motor show in March. Looks pretty nice but it lacks Tesla Roadster performance. Also, reading the press release, Nissan seems unaware that an electric sports car already exists on the market.

    Tata Indica Vista

    I just realized there wasn't yet a thread for this car. Yet, it could arguably be one of the most promising vehicles out there in terms of cost and performance. The electric drivetrain from TM4 is also interesting and worth a look.
