Last week Cadillac finally showed the world the Lyriq, a premium SUV that will be the first all-electric car from GM’s luxury brand. The model will arrive in the United States in late 2022, but we already know that its price it will be much less than most experts predicted.

The vehicle, which uses GM’s Ultium platform, is currently at 80% production. A model that, among other specifications, has ultra-luxury design, 480 kilometers of range or fast charging of 150 kW, and that the sector placed in a price range of 70K minimum.

However, Steve Carlisle, president of General Motors North America, confirmed a few hours ago that the Cadillac Lyriq will start at less than $ 60,000. He said:

We need to be in the same price zone. This car should be priced similar to what the industry values ​​luxury midsize SUVs today, perhaps a slight premium at first. It is a price that will not exceed five digits, and will not start with a seven or a six.

Therefore, it is clear that the vehicle will be in the range of $ 50,000., or what is the same, Cadillac and its ultra-luxurious SUV will be a serious competition for versions of the Tesla Model Y (which currently start at $ 50,000).[[Electrek]

Tesla fuels the rise in its share

At nearly $ 1,500 a piece, Tesla’s stock had become almost untouchable for many retail investors. The manufacturer of electric cars thus announced on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday a next division by five of the nominal value of its shares. Tesla shareholders will receive four new shares on August 21, after markets close. They will start listing on August 31.

This technical operation is neutral for the group’s share capital and its distribution to its various shareholders. It will also have no effect on the valuation of the manufacturer. Net earnings per share, which is used to calculate the earnings capitalization ratio, will be mechanically divided by five once the split is effective.

The division of the nominal should however help fuel the rise in the price. After soaring 220% this year, and an all-time high of $ 1,794 on July 20, Tesla stock was becoming out of reach for individuals seduced by the growth prospects promised by Elon Musk’s group. Tesla is the second favorite value of investors on the popular Robinhood trading site, after Apple.

Yesterday, the Tesla share price ended up 13.12% to 1,554.76 dollars.

Nominal divisions have become relatively rare on the New York Stock Exchange, in particular because of the offers of certain brokerage sites which allow the purchase of fractions of shares for securities whose unit value is too high for an individual. According to S&P Dow Jones Indices, only three groups in the S&P 500 have done so this year, compared to an average of ten over the decade. The last group to have divided the par value of its shares, Apple, during the month of July. It was the fourth division of the nominal in the history of the manufacturer of the iPhone.

Despite the surge in its share, and a capitalization of 256 billion dollars (217 billion euros), almost four times the combined value of General Motors and Ford, Tesla still does not appear in the S&P 500. But its promotion in the gotha ​​of the American stock exchange seems however more and more near. By publishing in July a fourth consecutive quarterly profit, Tesla fulfilled the last condition required by S&P which he missed. S&P meets monthly to review applicants’ index files.

Model 3 driver got it wrong, Tesla wipers are not illegal in Germany – News – Hybrids and Electric

Some days ago we echoed of the news appeared in several international media that assured that Smart Wipers on the Tesla Model 3 they had been declared illegal by a German court after an accident. However, the reality is not like that. The court in charge of the case never judged Tesla but the conduitr, that he was found guilty and fined for it. The judgment of this local court, appealed by him, was ratified by the higher regional court, which confirmed the 200 euro fine and the withdrawal of the driving license for one month. Judge did not mention anything about an illegal or unauthorized vehicleSo all Tesla vehicles in Germany are still licensed by the KBA (German Federal Vehicle Association).

A local German court will imposed a fine and prohibited you from driving for a month to the driver of a Tesla Model 3 which caused an accident when manipulating the center screen to modify the operation of the windshield wipers. In this ruling, the court does not accuse Tesla of any illegality or warn it that it has to modify the operation of this element. Simply condemns the driver for misusing his car, and thereby cause an accident. The translation of the sentence, collected on the web Electrek, we include it in the previous article,

The driver appealed to the next higher regional court on the grounds that the accident was not his fault but that it was the access to the wiper control that forced him to be distracted. That is, it blamed the manufacturer for a poor implementation of the control of this element. As reported CleanTechnica, this second court confirmed the sentence of the first and maintained the fine of 200 euros and the withdrawal of the card for a month.

What the judge ruled is that the Model 3 screen should be used the same as that of a mobile. It is illegal to look at any screen for too long, be it the mobile screen, or the car screen. That is to say, it is illegal to misuse it. And that is what is judged and what is sentenced. In no case have the Tesla Model 3 windshield wipers been declared illegal nor is the manufacturer appealed to change the way they are configured. All Tesla vehicles in Germany are licensed by the KBA (German Federal Vehicle Association) and the judge does not mention anything about an illegal or unauthorized vehicle.

The Tesla Model 3 wiper includes a dedicated button on the left stick located next to the steering wheel. Pressing once makes a sweep. If pressed for a long time, the sweep is accompanied by a jet of water. Either of these two options makes the wiper controls appear at the bottom of the touchscreen, making it easy to set up with a single touch. Furthermore, Tesla also implements voice commands to do this without taking your eyes off the road.

In consecuense, the driver had several options to set the windshield wiper without having to search for the option in the center display that required excessive time and a loss of attention on the road. That is to say, the driver did not know how to fully handle the options of his car and he committed an illegality and for that reason he has been sanctioned by both courts.

The Ford Mustang got electric drive and Tesla guts. Surprisingly not at home, but in Russia

Would you expect a cross between two American cars to emerge in the United States? No way. The Russians set about converting the classic Mustang into an electric car.

Even a marginal car fan is well aware of where the Ford and Tesla brands are based. It is even more surprising that the hybrid of two models of these cars was not created in North America, but in Russia. The local company Aviar Motors she decided to screw the Tesla elektrický electric drive and its infotainment into the classic Mustang.

You can see the result in the attached photo gallery, which also shows the interior with a large, vertically placed screen, which we know from Tesla cars. Aviar named its project R67 and is based on a two-seater Mustang from 1967. From the outside, the car changed only minimally to remain true to the legacy of the original donor.

But it’s a very different car in the bowels. Forget about humming the internal combustion engine. Here you will find two electric motors and a battery with a capacity of 100 kWh. This not only announces a solid range, but also the fact that you can charge the car on Tesla Superchargers.

The R67 prototype is ready, boasting 840 horsepower (618 kW) and accelerating from standstill to 100 in 2.2 seconds! The range is said to be worth 507 kilometers, so the only unanswered question is the price. We guess that this electric classic will not be completely cheap…

Tesla has ceased to receive subsidies from the US government

Tesla, an electric car manufacturer, has ceased to receive tax subsidies from US authorities, said company head Ilon Musk.

“By the way, Tesla, in fact, receives the“ smallest ”subsidies compared to any other automakers in the United States. Federal tax subsidies apply to electric cars from other automakers, but no longer to Tesla, ”Mr Musk wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, the analytical agency JD Power conducted a study, based on which it compiled a rating of the highest quality cars. Tesla took the last place in this rating, as 250 problems per 100 cars were revealed in electric cars.

Details – in the article “Kommersant FM” “Tesla showed the problem areas.”

Elon Musk has again insulted the owner of the Amazon

Entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk is once again on the verge of scandal. Now the inventor verbally attacked the owner of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, calling him a copycat. It is known that Bezos said the purchase of the startup’s unmanned vehicles, to which Musk responded immediately in his Twitter.

The head of Tesla retweeted the news edition of the Financial Times about buying a startup company Zoox Amazon for 1.2 billion dollars and laughed at Bezoom. “Jeff Bezos a copycat. Ha-ha,” wrote Musk.

The post Elon musk on Twitter

Musk is not the first time criticizes the head of the Amazon for imitation: earlier it competing with SpaceX company Bezos announced the intention to create a satellite constellation to provide Internet connection. At that time, SpaceX has already begun to implement such a project, Starlink, and the Mask could not accuse the opponent of plagiarism.

Prior to this, the Creator of the Tesla was in the center of a sex scandal. Mask accused of having sex with ex wife johnny Depp amber heard and model Cara Delevingne. To protect their reputation family-oriented attempted to refute the rumors, saying, what is with girls only in friendly relations.

Tesla, in 2021, the fastest car is the thrust from the rockets

In 2017, we have witnessed the presentation of the second generation of the Tesla Roadster, on that occasion, the CEO of the company, of Palo Alto, a manufacturer of electric cars exceptional that we all know, said of the data that have left us without words.

In fact, Elon Musk had made a promise: his Roadster would have insured one snap-acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 1.9 seconds. And that’s not all, after you launch this provocation, began even to assert that it would have added rockets to his new power, to make it a real lightning powerful and has great speed.

The question has also been expressed Jason Fenske, of the Youtube channel Engineering Explainedstating that the rockets promised by Elon Musk may even give the chance to the car to shoot from 0 to 100 km/h in a record time, well just 1.1 seconds. To insert in the electric Tesla Roadster this is the only system there is a need of much space, should therefore be removed the rear seats of the car, to leave the space needed for the compressed air tank. The battery pack should be able to operate a pump capable of sending compressed air to 10 thrusters positioned around the car, some of which may “be hidden behind the rear license plate”, this is the we read in a tweet of the same Elon Musk.

The rockets to increase the shutter speed of the Tesla Roadster have a unique advantage on any other type of system, they are not in fact limited by the grip of the tyres, and it was the same Fenske repeat. The power that is generated by an internal combustion engine or by an electric motor, should then be channeled and addressed through the tires. In the case in which, however, is so high that the tires can’t handle it, the car is not, however, able to accelerate more quickly.

During the presentation of the Tesla Roadster, the House had announced that production of its new electric would have started just this year. Now, it seems, instead, that the date will roll overat the time, in fact Elon Musk is dealing with a very strong increase in the production of the Model Y, and with the launch of the Cybertruck that, in spite of the presentation is not been a great success, will begin to be produced in 2021. Probably to see the Roadster so we will have to wait for the 2022.

13-Year-old is filming the construction of the Tesla factory

Es only needs three clicks on the Touchscreen, and the camera drone of Silas Heineken lights up and is ready to start. With a quiet whir it rises vertically from the Meadow in the misty gray sky. It’s eight o’clock in the morning, in the Brandenburg-Grünheide. In front of the thirteen-year-old the site for the planned Tesla factory covers. You can see the truck and excavator driving back and forth, but the terrain is so large that it can not capture from this height completely.

From the top of the is different. Heineken controls his drone over the Area immediately adjacent to the highway 10. His gaze is focused focused on the screen of his controller. He sees in real time, which is filming the drone. The land on which the factory is to be built, stretches over 300 acres – Silas Heineken can see now quite. Direction and height of the drone he controlled with two Joysticks. His Mission: to document the construction progress for his Youtube fan base. Under the Pseudonym “TeslaKid green Heath,” published twice a week, lavishly produced Videos of its drone flights, with instrumental music – in the order of Tesla CEO Elon Musk personally.

As Silas Heineken dropped in February for the first Time his drone to ascend, he little thought to have overflight rights. In the short video he filmed regularly, what we did on the site. More and more Tesla Fans from all over the world were excited. However, after a month, he had to announce bad news. The security guards of the factory, the activities of the three ten year olds were pushed open sour. They alarmed the police for trespassing. Without the official approval of Tesla, he’s not allowed to fly over the terrain of the construction site, they told him. “I had two options,” said Heineken, “either is now, or do I do that in public.” He decided he wanted to Publish, and told it his 12,000 Fans on Youtube, what had happened, and asked for help. To organise a permit from Tesla, this should be possible.

The American company did not have to ask twice. The Youtube channel “Now You Know”, the often reported about Tesla themes, to handle Heineken case. On 7. April invited the presenters, Zac and Jesse Cataldo, a Video in which you spoke directly to Elon Musk’s appeal: “Let the kid fly.” The platform “Third Row Podcast,” published the Clip on Twitter and stylized Heineken encounter with the police nor to a near-arrest, to make Elon Musks attention. Only a little later, a response from Tesla CEO personally: “Fine by me actually came”, he tweeted: fits for me. Silas Heineken still vividly remembers this Moment. It was late at night, as his mobile phone thanks to numerous news period rang. “Then when I saw Musks Tweet, I was mega excited and really happy.”

“For a thirteen-year-old a dream”

Since then, Heineken is Silas again and again, his drone upgrades, and films, such as excavators, cranes and trucks moving on site. On his Controller, it looks like a toy landscape with lots of small figures. He knows exactly what it the camera of the drone from 50 meters height shows. “In the area here,” he says, pointing to a large part of the construction site, “were in action last week in the hill.” Now he is leveled. The construction did not advance so fast, that he did not know and sometimes even like the go actually.

The Californian company presents a high pace. Tesla wants to build in green Heath, from next year, to 500,000 cars a year. More than 12,000 jobs are to be created in the structurally weak Region. The construction activities are, however, at your own risk, because Tesla has for the time being, just get an early approval, the final is still to come. Against the original planning application, citizens ‘ initiatives submitted a total of 370 objections, among other things, due to environmental concerns. The high water consumption of the factory is a concern. According to figures from the Brandenburg Ministry of the environment, Tesla filed on Wednesday of last week a revised application that reduced water consumption was reported. According to the Minister of the economy Jörg Steinbach (SPD) increases the ability to obtain Approval of the project. The shell could stand in September.

Silas Heineken knows how to differentiate all the Controversy. When it comes to the environmental concerns against the factory, he wants to issue Tesla a blank check. However, his attempt to come to terms with the adversaries into the conversation that it was a failure: “to come To the Demos, people who protest just partially, in order to be against something.”

Silas Heineken directs his drone back. The black dot in the sky is bigger, the buzz gets louder. His gaze switches between the Controller and the drone to and fro. Slowly she sinks down and sits in front of him. In total, a round trip takes one and a half hours. Including editing of the material he invested per Video six to seven hours. The school performance suffer, of course, but he cares a little. Elon Musk or Steve Jobs had been finally, no genius in school.

His Youtube channel earned him, in the meantime, a monthly average of three-digit amount. “There has accumulated a sum which is for a thirteen-year-old a dream.” What to do with the money, he does not know yet. Until he can make his driver’s license, it takes a bit, but Silas Heineken already knows which car he would drive then a Model Y of Tesla. Maybe even one that rolls up in green Heath from the Band. Well possible, that the revenue of his aerial shots allow him the at the end.
