Mon, 10/16/2017 - 4:11pm

If President Trump is serious about protecting US manufacturing jobs, he has a strange way of showing it.

Poland To Paris — Our “31 Hour” Tesla Model S Road Trip To & From Autonomy

Mon, 10/16/2017 - 1:21am

Autonomy starts in just a few days. I will be headed over there (to Paris) with my smart and funny cleantech pal Kuba Stechly. I will be moderating two panels at the conference, but it would have been somewhere at the top of my list of "conferences to squeeze out some time to attend" anyway due to the integrated, full-picture, and insightfully future-focused approach it brings to the world. It's not just about electric cars, not just about cleantech, not just about alternative transport, and not just about city planning. It's about bicycling, walking, city planning, robotaxis, electric cars, electric scooters, EV charging, mobility as a service, the internet of things, and much more. Bringing his own strong commitment to personal action to my inbox, Kuba suggested that we take a Tesla Shuttle to Paris instead of flying
