Got to go and attend the latest +Tesla and +SolarCity event announcing the new solar shingles.

It looks great, but way too expensive for someone already generating all the power he needs. It was cool to see the upgrades to the Tesla Energy product line and a surprise #Model3 appearance

Technically, London Taxi Company isn’t a London or even a UK company — it’s owned by Chinese company Geely (which also owned Volvo). Without eliminating the iconic look of London’s taxis, which made me feel like I was in a different era when I visited…

Now that +Transport Evolved Future Car News got a Toyota RAV4EV Gen 1 into its garage, the TE user community and its contributors now all have the various vehicles that make up the very excellent battery study from +Tom Saxton and the good folks at +Plug In America So, if you drive a Gen 1 RAV4EV (looking at you +Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield) a +Nissan Leaf, a #Tesla Roadster or a #Tesla Model S, why not participate in this great study.

We need more contributors.

The Union of Concerned Scientists did the best and most rigorous assessment of the carbon footprint of Tesla’s and other electric vehicles vs internal combustion vehicles including hybrids. They found that the manufacturing of a full-sized Tesla Model S rear-wheel drive car with an 85 KWH battery was equivalent to a full-sized internal combustion car except for the battery, which added 15% or one metric ton of CO2 emissions to the total manufacturing.

However, they found that this was trivial compared to the emissions avoided due to not burning fossil fuels to move the car. Before anyone says “But electricity is generated from coal!”, they took that into account too, and it’s included in the 53% overall reduction.

The Tesla Model 3 wasn't the only car that Tesla has made with a small trunk...

The Roadster beat it by almost a decade by the time the Model 3 rolls off the assembly line for public consumption. What folks keep harping on is the fact that this car is currently a PROTOTYPE, that means they're still working on it.

I was surprised when I heard about all the negative sentiment being sent over to +Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield and others on +Transport Evolved Future Car News.

Here's my take on the Trunk (Boot) and Frunk... and I'm almost a Tesloid
