Peugeot 2008 was the most popular car in Europe in October, according to research firm Jato Dynamics. It was also noted that French brands performed well in the European sales ranking.

In October, 665,000 vehicles were sold in the European Union. The best-selling car was the 2008 Peugeot with 18,109 units, an improvement of 9%. It is also worth noting that Peugeot 2008 entered the European market in 2013, but never before has it climbed to the first place in the ranking of the best-selling cars in the region.

The current generation Peugeot 2008 is the first vehicle in its class to receive an electric version as part of Peugeot’s electrification strategy. However, the source does not provide data on how sales were divided between the gasoline and electric versions of the 2008 Peugeot.

The second place went to Renault Clio with 14,639 vehicles sold (-36%). The third place is taken by the Dacia Sandero, the car that was the leader a few months ago. Dacia sold 14,034 vehicles in October. In fourth place is another Peugeot, the new Peugeot 2008.

The Ford Focus is in fifth place, followed by the Fiat 500 and Fiat Panda. Opel Corsa is in eighth place. Volkswagen T-Roc took the ninth position, and Renault Captur at the bottom of the rating.

The Volkswagen Golf, long the best-selling car in Europe, has blown out of the top ten.

Tesla workers cannot return to offices as Elon Musk ordered

In early June, Tesla CEO Elon Musk ordered remote employees to return to their offices, and they obeyed. Only, as it turned out, Tesla itself was not ready for this. At least – her facility in Fremont (California). Workers faced a shortage of tables, parking spaces and even Wi-Fi!

During the pandemic (more precisely, since 2019), the number of Tesla employees has doubled to 99,210 people. And although Musk himself has already recognized hiring as redundant and announced the dismissal of 10% of the staff, the problem of shortage of space in offices will still have to be dealt with somehow.

The lack of parking spaces is what was waiting for Tesla workers outside, but there were simply no empty spaces inside. Tesla has reportedly repurposed some of the space during the pandemic, and of course, this did not take into account the return of the overgrown staff back to the office. It is noted that the shortage of tables was so great that managers still asked some employees to work from home. And those who had enough tables and space complained about a weak Wi-Fi signal.

All in all, Musk’s plan to get employees back in the office was not without flaws.

496 hp all wheel drive and HarmonyOS Huaweis first electric car

Judging by the rumors that circulate in the Chinese (and not only) media and relate to the premiere dates of new Huawei products, the company has revised its announcement strategy. If earlier car premieres did not intersect with other devices, now it is the other way around: cars are presented on the same day as smartphones. And so it will be with the company’s first electric car, the Aito M5e.

496 hp, all-wheel drive and HarmonyOS.  Huawei's first electric car will be presented on September 12 - along with Huawei Mate 50

Recall, the other day it became known that the premiere of the nova 10 series smartphones will take place on July 4, and on the same day, Huawei will present its second car, the large Aito M7 hybrid crossover. It is possible that the car, smartphones and other novelties will make their debut on the same stage. And now the same is being said about Huawei’s first electric car, the Aito M5e. Its premiere is scheduled for September 12, and on the same day, Huawei is rumored to introduce the Mate 50.

There are no official details about the Aito M5e, but the car has already been listed in the Chinese regulator’s database, which has revealed key details. So, Aito M5e will receive two electric motors: 224 hp. on the front axle and 272 hp. – on the back. That is, the crossover will be all-wheel drive. The capacity of the traction battery will be 72 kWh. There is no data on the mileage on a single charge, but you can count on about 500 km.

But at the same time, it will be spacious inside, since the length of the wheelbase is 2880 mm. Weight Aito M5e, depending on the capacity of the traction battery, will be 2235 or 2350 kg. Externally, the Aito M5e will repeat the Aito M5 hybrid crossover, the first Huawei car. The interior will also be about the same as the Aito M5 – with a large screen in the center and a multimedia and entertainment system running HarmonyOS.

Prices for electric vehicles soared amid rising costs of materials

American companies Tesla, Ford, GM, Rivian and Lucid have markedly increased the cost of electric vehicles over the past few months, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Manufacturers said the price increase was due to increased costs for battery materials. In addition, the demand for electric vehicles began to grow sharply against the backdrop of rising gasoline prices.

Last week, for example, General Motors added $6,250 to GMC Hummer electric pickups, which now range in price from $85,000 to $105,000. General Motors announced a rise in prices for materials and logistics.
