Hello, my name is Zach Shahan, and I have a problem. I’m a political nut. More seriously, I’ll admit that [&hellip

Originally published on EV Obsession. Following similar moves elsewhere, authorities in the US state of California are now considering banning [&hellip


Tesla Death Watch … My Ass

July 28th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Tesla was on a “death watch” nearly one decade ago. News coverage and editorials frequently postulated Tesla’s coming demise. “It couldn’t [&hellip


Electric Vehicle Charging: Convenience, Reliability, Accessibility, & Future Needs (CleanTechnica EV Driver Report)

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

It was with a great degree of curiosity that we explored EV charging experiences and needs by type of EV and region for our latest EV report. What's the story for Tesla drivers, non-Tesla fully electric car drivers, and plug-in hybrid drivers? What's the story for Americans vs Europeans? We already covered the desire and demand for fast charging and superfast charging in a previous section, but we dive much more into other charging matters here.

These Features Are What Electric Car Drivers Demand & Desire (CleanTechnica Report)

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the more interesting things for me in our annual EV surveys is how much people want various special features — auto lane change, all-wheel drive, superfast charging, fast charging, etc. The extra fun in our new 93-page electric car driver report is that we got these responses segmented by type of EV and region.

23–50% Of Current Electric Drivers Plan To Get A Tesla Model 3 Next (CleanTechnica Report)

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

With over 100,000 reservations logged in under 24 hours — before the car was even unveiled — it doesn’t take six polls to uncover which electric car tops the list of “expected next EV model.” Nonetheless, the Tesla Model 3 didn’t single-handedly account for the majority of answers for that question, and seeing the precise “future car” split according to 6 six very different EV-driving groups is fascinating


Why Early EV Adopters Went Electric, & The Best Things About Driving Electric

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Last week, we published CleanTechnica's new, 93-page electric car and driver report. For the report, we surveyed over 2,000 electric car drivers living in 28 countries (26 European countries, 49 of 50 US states, and 9 Canadian provinces). Generally speaking, we wanted to find out what early electric car adopters require and desire from their next electric cars and from EV charging networks, as well as what EV life is like so far for them


Electric Car Drivers Want Electric SUVs/CUVs, Midsized Cars, More Model Choices (CleanTechnica Report)

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the challenges of the current EV market is extreme lack of choice. There are only a few widely available models, and even if you look in the most popular markets (California, Norway, etc.), EV models only account for a small percentage of all the vehicle classes. We were curious which classes were most desired for future EV purchases and again polled respondents on this topic (simply in regards to size and style, not taking into account price)
