German Auto Crisis, Tesla Autopilot Through Green Lights, Renewable Revolution — CleanTechnica Top 20

An article from a couple of weeks ago, “This Stunning Chart Shows Why Battery Electric Vehicles Win,” somehow actually led in terms of eyeballs last week, but since it wasn’t published last week, it’s not included in this top 20 list. (Good to see that it got so much love, though.)

The biggest CleanTechnica stories published last week included an amazingly insightful (as confirmed by VW execs) view into German auto giant Volkswagen, a coming update to Tesla Autopilot/FSD that will have the cars drive through green lights on their own (confirmed by Elon Musk in a tweet responding to the article), and the burgeoning renewable energy revolution. For more, scroll through the full top 20 list and click on all the links! (Or at least 3 of them.)

It was clear which automakers topped the news here last week. Volkswagen had 5 stories in the top 20 (not entirely for good reasons) and Tesla had 8 stories in the top 20 (a rather typical showing). I happen to own shares in both companies — because I think they have potential to lead the industry in the coming decade as it transitions to fully electric vehicles at a much greater pace. That said, Volkswagen has been making me nervous lately, and I definitely do not provide any stock market recommendations!

We have some more fun pieces on the Volkswagen ID.3 coming in the next week, and Tesla is sure to generate quite a bit of news as usual. Stay tuned, and don’t forget to share our links with friends so that more people are up to date with the hottest trends in the cleantech world!
