Content indirectly related to Tesla

  1. Radio Program About NUMMI Factory, 2010, 61m, LINK (Click on the small arrow under the picture. There is a 23 second radio advert before it starts)
    This is a sad story about Toyota and GM's Nummi Factory. Today that building is Tesla's Fremont Factory where they build the cars. Tesla bought it from Toyota. It had a capacity of 500.000 cars per year. Elon Musk said in the future Tesla will restore the factory to its former capacity.
    In September 2014 during his Japan trip Elon said they have a lot of things to learn from Toyota. This radio program provides some background on why Elon said that. It gives a glance into a fascinating piece of history where two companies with very different cultures, Toyota and GM collided with each other. Maybe it also gives us some clues where Tesla could go and what kind of company they could become.
  2. Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006, 92m, Documentary, Moreflicks**)
    SEARCH LINK (select 92 minutes long video)

    Elon Musk talked about this documentary many times (link1, link2). He said when GM made the EV1 he thought they would continue with EV2, EV3. But when they crushed the EV1 that's when he knew electric cars wouldn't succeed without a new car company. In other interviews Elon said his motivation is to take a sad thing and change it into a positive. This documentary gives us an idea on the background why Tesla Motors was started.
    The director of this documentary, Chris Paine, also directed the documentary 'Revenge of the Electric Car' (listed above) a few years after this. Here is a 49m interview with him about his two documentaries where he also talks about Tesla and Elon Musk among other things.
  3. Interview with Lyndon Rive, Elon Musk's cousin and the CEO of SolarCity. In parts of this interview he talks about Tesla batteries for solar energy storage. 09 Dec 2013, 21m, LINK1, LINK2

* Netflix Workaround: Watch Netflix US from the UK (works for any country that has Netflix) :
1. Sign up to Netflix UK on www.netflix.com
2. In Google Chrome, download the extension ZenMate from here: Chrome Web Store
3. When you install ZenMate it asks you for your email. This is not important. If you want you can enter a bogus email and make up a password. You won't need these later.
4. In Chrome on top right click on the green ZenMate icon and make sure location is US and it says ON.
5. Go to netflix.com and sign in with your Netflix UK login details.

** Moreflicks: This website shows in what countries the film is available on Netflix or iTunes. When you open the Moreflix page, click on the Netflix or iTunes icon to see the country list.


1. Anybody can copy this list and create their own version on another website without giving credit to me.
2. This list respects copyrights. All direct links open to the original video uploaded by the copyright holder.
3. Most dates shown here are recording date, not upload date. It makes more sense to sort videos by recording date if somebody wants to watch them in historical context. Sometimes the recording date that you see here, is not mentioned anywhere on the video page and you might be wondering where the recording date came from. I came from Google search for the date of that specific event.
4. This content is directly or indirectly related to Tesla. There is another list here for general EV content but it doesn't follow the two criteria I mentioned above.
5. I applied two criteria when creating this list. (1) All items are accessible online to create a better experience. That means if there was a Tesla documentary that you couldn't watch online, I wouldn't list it here because it would create a bad experience. (2) All videos are over 20 minutes, other than a few exceptions, to make them worthwhile watching.
6. If I stop updating the list, moderators are welcome to update links and to add items (but not to remove) that meet the two criteria at the beginning.
I added star ratings to a few 'must watch' videos.
8. Check out my other Elon Musk topic here.
9. Transcripts of a few of these videos can be found here.

Thanks for sharing this list @Teo

As the vast majority are Tesla related I have moved (the main content of) your post to the Tesla forum where hopefully it will be well received and attract the most appropriate audience and attention.

I have also used some of the generic EV links (mostly removed from your post above) in the main EV films/documentaries etc. thread in the open EV discussion forum.

I haven't checked the links in your post, just cleaned up the formatting and such. Please be sure that copyright infringing material isn't being shared or linked to, as if discovered that will have to be removed. Goes for all contributors.

Thanks again.

I cleared copyright issues. When necessary I converted direct links to a youtube search. The rest is either fan videos, videos from Tesla Motors official youtube channel, videos by institutes or other organizations who uploaded their videos.

@Joe Tesla Kennedy, feel free to copy the entire list if you want. I added a note to the bottom.
