British-American startup Arrival, whose main shareholder is the former head of Yota, Denis Sverdlov, presented its first conventional electric car. As a reminder, the company is already working on an electric cargo van, and UPS has already ordered 10,000 of these vehicles.
The car under the uncomplicated name The Car should roll off the assembly line in the third quarter of 2023.
There are still few technical details. An Engadget journalist noted that with the outer dimensions of a class C car, there is a lot of space inside. Especially for rear passengers, as the car is focused primarily on taxis, sharing services, and so on.
However, at the same time, the current prototype, which is already ready for the company, has a fairly small trunk, which can fit either one large or a couple of small suitcases.
The prototype is also equipped with a 13-inch infotainment display, which also serves as a dashboard in the manner of the Tesla Model 3.
Tesla Semi electric trucks are finally ready to go: Tesla started accepting pre-orders
Tesla has delayed the release of the electric truck due to the coronavirus pandemic and the global chip shortage, but now the manufacturer has announced the start of accepting pre-orders for the Tesla Semi. Those wishing to place a pre-order must transfer $ 20,000, but there is no exact date for the start of shipments yet.
At the time of the announcement of the Tesla Semi in 2017, the automaker said that production versions of the 36-ton electric truck would have a range of about 480 and 800 km at a price of $150,000 and $180,000, respectively. The truck can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 20 seconds, even with a huge load.
In March last year, it became known that Tesla was building a production line for the Tesla Semi in a new building near the Gigafactory Nevada in order to produce five Tesla Semi electric trucks per week by the end of 2021. However, in July last year it became known that the release of the Tesla Semi was postponed to 2022 “due to limited availability of battery cells and problems with the global supply chain.”
The Tesla Semi is expected to offer significant fuel savings over traditional trucks. It is predicted to save up to $100,000 per year in operating costs. If the forecasts are confirmed, then the Tesla Semi could bring revolutionary changes to the transportation industry.

The launch of Jetour Dasheng sales in China is scheduled for the second half of 2022.
Tesla did not receive special conditions and abandoned plans to enter the Indian market
Tesla has abandoned its plans to enter the Indian market. This is attributed to the inability of the Indian government to achieve tariff cuts.
This could be a blow to the expected number of jobs that could be created in India with Tesla’s presence. India remains the largest market in the world where Tesla has yet to be officially represented. Strong import tariffs have been a major impediment to Tesla’s entry into the Indian market. However, there were some indications that the company could enter the market in 2022. Previously, an Indian facility was established in Bangalore as a local arm of the brand.
India has an incentive strategy for local EV manufacturers, including high import tariffs on EVs. This policy has made it difficult for foreign electric vehicles from China and the US to enter the market. Tesla planned to build an electric car factory in India, but intended to see how its cars perform in the market first. The Indian government, through its transport minister, has said it wants Tesla to build cars inside India rather than relying on imports from China. In addition, the country has not yet established a service center and Supercharger charging stations.
Some of Tesla’s key employees in India are currently being transferred to work in other countries. The government will not provide Tesla with special conditions for the construction of the plant, so the company will continue to develop in other countries for the time being.
