Elon Musk recently admitted that he did not come up with the name Tesla Motors. Instead, he sent “the nicest person” of his team, which he negotiated to buy the Tesla Motors brand for $ 75,000.
The founder of Tesla and SpaceX confirmed that he also planned to use the Faraday trademark if he could not get the Tesla brand, but eventually a Chinese company called Faraday Future, which also deals with electric vehicles, entered the market. The company’s first electric vehicle, the FF91, will go into series production and will be delivered to customers next July.
Faraday Future founder Jia Yueting responded to Musk’s Twitter comment: “In the development of humanity and science, we are more allies than competitors. May Faraday and Tesla continue to be great in the 21st century. Hats off to adventurers who dare to advance the progress of human civilization and create an intelligent ecosystem of electric mobility. “
Musk previously asked his Twitter followers if he should sell 10% of his Tesla shares. In total, more than 3.5 million people voted – 57.9% of them voted for the sale of shares. As a result, Tesla shares fell 5%.
I bought a Tesla – share with your friends. Tesla app highlights future car sharing features
Tesla has long been talking about plans to introduce features related to the ability to share its cars. And now, hints of upcoming features appeared in the mobile application.
In the code of the new version of the Tesla app 4.3.1, three new features were mentioned:
- Share your Tesla car with others
- Vehicle sharing assets
- Vehicle sharing endpoints
The functions themselves, apparently, are not in the application yet, but from the names we can understand what to expect from the upcoming updates. Tesla already allowed owners to add other users through a feature on its site last year. Tesla is now looking to integrate the same functionality into its mobile app.
Such a function will allow not only to easily and simply share a car with friends or family members, but also, for example, rent out your car for a short-term rental as part of a car-sharing service, which Tesla has talked about more than once.
In Norway, they practically stopped buying cars exclusively with internal combustion engines.
At the end of November, Norway again demonstrated an incredible level of electrification of the car market.
73.8% of all new cars sold in November were fully electric. This is less than in September, when the indicator was 77.5%.
However, if we add hybrids to the calculations, then the figure in November will grow to 94.9% against 91.5% in September. That is, the share of electric vehicles has slightly decreased, and hybrids have grown significantly, and as a result, the share of electrified cars has grown in general.
In more detail, 356 gasoline vehicles, 416 diesel vehicles, 3,288 hybrid vehicles and 11,274 all-electric vehicles were sold in Norway in November. The shares of the above segments are respectively 2.3%, 2.7%, 21.1% and 73.8%. For comparison, a year earlier the corresponding indicators were 5.1%, 5.4% 33.3% and 56.1%.
Market leaders last month were:
- Tesla Model Y (1,013 units)
- Tesla Model 3 (771 units)
- Volkswagen ID.4 (725 units)
- Audi Q4 e-tron (661 units)
- Nissan Leaf (655 units)
Toyota will move to electric vehicles as slowly as possible. At least in Western Europe
Toyota is a fairly active opponent of the rapid transition to electric vehicles, but it has nowhere to go.
Recently, the European division of the company presented its 14-year development plan called Kenshiki (“discernment”). The main attention there is paid precisely to the transfer of cars to “green” energy sources.
In particular, the company expects that by 2030 in Western Europe, sales of ZEVs (electric vehicles and hydrogen cars) will reach at least 50%. The company also notes that it will be able to increase the production of such cars if there is demand.
Moving beyond 2030, we anticipate further increases in demand for ZEVs and Toyota will be poised to achieve a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions in all new vehicles in Western Europe by 2035 if sufficient infrastructure for hydrogen charging and refueling is in place by then. and the capacity of renewable energy sources will increase, which will require
At the same time, Toyota’s plans here clearly coincide with the European Green Deal program, which was announced in the summer. That is, Toyota is not going to be the fastest in this race, but intends to switch to such cars as carefully and slowly as the laws of a particular market will allow.
