General Motors has auctioned the first GMC Hummer EV electric pickup truck. Recall that this electric car with a power plant with a capacity of 1000 hp, acceleration to 97 km / h in 3 seconds and a power reserve of 563 km was presented in October last year, and retail sales should start this year. The first in the series will be the top-end version of the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 at the price of $ 112,595, and it was just sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $ 2.5 million.
GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 with serial number V0001 was purchased by a woman whose name has not been disclosed. All proceeds from the sale went to charity – sent to The ?? Tunnel to Towers, which supports families of emergency responders who are injured or killed in the line of duty. In particular, at the expense of the fund, inexpensive smart homes are being built for such families.
Tesla Model S and Model X electric cars rise in price by $ 5,000
Tesla continues to rewrite the price tags for its electric vehicles. Yesterday we wrote that some versions of Model 3 and Model Y have risen in price in the United States by $ 2,000, and tonight the flagships – Model 3 and Model X have risen in price. Moreover, by $ 5,000 at once.
Model S Long Range yesterday cost $ 90,000 in the US, today it is $ 95,000. The Model X Long Range was priced at $ 100,000, now it is $ 105,000. At the same time, the ordered cars will have to wait for more than six months: Model S Long Range for new orders will be shipped only by June 2022.
And here’s another interesting point. Historically, the Model X crossover has always been more expensive than the Model S, but now that has changed. While the Model S Plaid costs $ 130,000, the Model X Plaid can be ordered for $ 120,000. Moreover, in fact, this is one and the same car, the only difference is in the body type.
BMW to cease production of internal combustion engines at Munich plant by 2024
BMW expects to end production of internal combustion engines at its main plant in Munich by 2024. This was announced yesterday by the head in charge of their release at a conference dedicated to the start of production of the electric i4 model.
According to Milan Nedeljkovic, the engines currently being produced in Munich will be produced at BMW plants in Austria and the UK, although cars with such engines will still be assembled at the Munich plant.
By 2023, at least half of the cars produced in Munich will be electrified. This concept includes both the number of battery electric vehicles and hybrids with the ability to charge from the mains. What’s more, BMW CEO Oliver Zipse recently said the company would be ready for any ban on combustion-powered cars starting in 2030.
Tesla Model 3 and Model Y have risen in price for the second time in a month, new buyers of the base Model 3 will receive their car only by September 2022
Tesla had already raised the price of its best-selling Model 3 and Model Y in the United States a few weeks ago, and now the company is raising prices again. Once again, the most popular models suffer. The increase was $ 2,000, however, it did not affect all modifications.
Thus, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus has risen in price from 42,000 dollars to 44,000. Interestingly, Tesla also updated the data on the lead time for the base Model 3 – new buyers will receive their electric car only in September 2022. However, it is possible to reduce the waiting period by several months if you choose larger wheels instead of standard wheels. Then you can get a freshly ordered base Model 3 by June 2022.
Tesla Model Y Long Range Dual Motor has risen in price from $ 55,000 to $ 57,000. Here, with the fulfillment of new orders for the Long Range version, it is also not easy: new buyers will have to wait for the crossover until August next year.
