There are currently two types of hidden door handles on the market. The first type is common with luxury brands such as Land Rover. When the car key is nearby, the handle automatically extends. The second type is used in cars from Tesla, BYD and other brands. You need to push one end of the doorknob and then pull it to open the door.
These handles have a more modern look and can also reduce wind resistance and energy consumption to a certain extent. Although the concealed doorknob has several advantages over traditional handles, it can freeze after freezing rain, heavy snowfall, and so on. In this case, you will have to make a lot of effort to get into the car.
Describing the situation, Tesla specifically added a manual for door maintenance in cold weather to its website, and also posted a visual video.
So, you need to open the doorknob and fix it in this position with a folded towel. Then you need to use WD-40, as shown in the video, after protecting your eyes. After the procedure, you must open and close the handle 10 times. Similar actions need to be done with the other three doors.
Honda showed its first electric crossover Prologue. But it will only be released in 2024.
Honda, like many other Japanese brands, is far behind its European competitors when it comes to electrifying their cars. The company already has a Honda e, and now the manufacturer has unveiled its first electric crossover, the Prologue. True, the car will enter the market only in 2024.
Whatever it was, so far we have only one official image. The crossover on it is not very similar to the current Honda models. The source says that Prologue is a joint development of the Japanese giant and GM, but no details yet. It is likely that the Prologue and some General Motors electric cars will have a common platform.
Honda plans to introduce 30 new electric vehicle models by 2030 and expects sales of 2 million units. After launching the Prologue in 2024, Honda plans to begin production of new electric vehicles based on its e:Architecture architecture in 2026, and in 2027 it will have affordable electric vehicles also co-developed with GM.
“I will vote Republican.” Musk lashes out at Democrats over Tesla’s exclusion from S&P 500 ESG index
Tesla was excluded from the S&P 500 ESG at the beginning of the month, but most people only knew about it now that Elon Musk decided to speak out about it.
ExxonMobil ranks in the top 10 in the world in the S&P 500 ESG Index, while Tesla didn’t make it! ESG is a scam. It was used as a weapon by fake social justice fighters.
The fact is that the S&P 500 ESG is an index that takes into account the environmental and social performance of companies. And Musk was obviously hurt that the huge oil company ExxonMobil was on the list, and Tesla was decided to be excluded. And there are even official reasons for the exclusion: Tesla has no strategy to reduce carbon emissions, no code of business conduct, and the company has also been accused of racism and poor working conditions.
But Musk did not stop at one statement.
I’ve voted Democrats in the past because they were (mostly) the goodness party. But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now watch their dirty campaign against me unfold
This is a much more serious statement, since many of Musk’s supporters are his supporters precisely because of his political views. Immediately, Musk made it clear that he changed them. This has already cost Tesla about $40 billion in capitalization, as the company’s shares fell immediately after the publication of its head.
