Tesla presented new and exciting things at the “Giga Fest” event it is hosting at Giga Berlin on October 9th. Tesla has unveiled the Model Y’s 4680 structural battery, along with several new colors the company will produce at the German plant when production begins later this year.

Photos of the Model Y structural pack were shared by Tesla subreddit u / geniuzdesign. The structural battery pack is one of Tesla’s newest engineering marvels, and the Model Y vehicles from Berlin will likely be the first vehicles in the world to feature Tesla’s new battery design and new 4680 cells. .

In September 2020, Tesla unveiled the 4680 cell and structural battery at its Battery Day Event. For years, Tesla has used 18650 and 2170 battery cells for the Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y. However, due to the ongoing battle with electric vehicles trying to achieve parity prices with gasoline vehicles, Tesla planned to design a new battery cell with longer life, more affordability, more power and more range. In addition, Tesla has developed a new structural battery that reduces the mass of the vehicle while increasing the rigidity and safety of the vehicle. The 4680 cells answered Tesla’s first question, while the structural battery was a blueprint for vehicles that would be built in Berlin and Texas.

CEO Elon Musk confirmed in October 2020 that the Model Y built at Giga Berlin would have the 4680 cell and structural battery.

New paint colors at Giga Berlin

After CEO Elon Musk confirmed in April 2020 that Giga Berlin will have a world-class paint shop that will offer “layers” of color, many have speculated what will come out of it. “Giga Berlin will have the most advanced paint shop in the world, with more stunning layers of color that subtly change with the curvature,” Musk said in a Tweet in April 2020. Now it looks like Tesla will be producing the color Deep Crimson that Musk’s Model S sported. at the Tesla Design Studio in Los Angeles in July 2020.

In addition, Alex Voigt, who was present at the Giga Fest event, also said that a new blue is available for vehicles produced in Berlin.

Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker has revealed that the next two models to be launched after the Fisker Ocean and the Fisker Pear will be developed in the UK by the new Fisker Magic Works team, led by the former Aston Martin man David King.

When the announcement was made about Magic Works, Fisker said: “We are at full speed to deliver four distinct vehicle lines by 2025, advancing innovation and infusing radical new ideas into the automotive market. global. “

While the Ocean and the Pear are both set to compete with mainstream electric vehicles, with US starting prices expected to start at under $ 30,000 (£ 26,000) for the Pear, the next two Fisker models developed in Britain will be more expensive offers.

Speaking exclusively to Auto Express about the cars being developed in the UK, Fisker said: “They are very different – they are going to enter a segment which I would say maybe there is a bit but it will be a twist on he and the other does not exist at all.

“We’re looking at a very extreme vehicle, so one will cost over $ 100,000 (£ 73,500) and the other will be below, and they will be two very different vehicles. They’ll both be serious, non-handcrafted low-volume production vehicles – they’ll still be serious production but not as big, of course, as the Ocean and Pear.

Although the development work is done in the UK, Fisker doesn’t expect them to be built here. “It hasn’t been decided yet, but honestly I think it’s very unlikely to happen,” he told us.

Fisker has entered into manufacturing deals with Magna, which will produce the Ocean from its sprawling plant in Graz, Austria, while Taiwanese tech-manufacturing giant Foxconn is set to build the smaller Pear model in a factory in the United States.

The Fisker Ocean will debut at the Los Angeles auto show next month with the first cars arriving with customers in late 2022 or early 2023. Pear is expected to arrive 12 months later, with both cars developed in Great Britain due to arrive one year. or after that.

Tired of that old jerk? Ready to throw it in for a sleek new hybrid or electric car? Or even an electric bike?

Bay Area air officials on Wednesday announced a new round of funding for a program that pays residents up to $ 9,500 to trade in older vehicles and replace them with newer, cleaner vehicles .

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has $ 8.3 million in new funding from the state to expand its Clean Cars for All program. The idea is to make it easier for people with modest means to buy electric and hybrid vehicles, thereby reducing pollution, especially in neighborhoods that receive high amounts.

“Not only is transportation the biggest source of air pollution in the Bay Area, it accounts for 40% of our greenhouse gas emissions,” said Cindy Chavez, a Santa County supervisor. Clara who is also chair of the air district board of directors.

And although the Bay Area, like much of California, has seen smog levels drop steadily over the past 50 years as environmental regulations have reduced pollution from factories, cars, and power plants, there are still many communities with high levels of asthma and other respiratory problems. diseases, especially those near highways, oil refineries and other sources of pollution.

In the past, electric vehicles were beyond the reach of many low-income people.

“If we are to be able to solve this problem, we have to include low-income communities,” Chavez said.

An old car from the 1970s or 1980s can emit as much exhaust pollution as 50 modern vehicles.

The Air District has two high profile programs to replace older vehicles. The first, known as the Vehicle Buy-Back Program, pays Bay Area residents $ 1,200 to scrap their car, SUV or light truck. Vehicle must be in running order and be a 1997 model or older. People who take the money can spend it for whatever they want.

Since 1996, this program has retired more than 90,000 cars, vans, pickup trucks and SUVs. For every pre-1997 vehicle removed from Bay Area roads – vehicles that lack modern emissions controls – an estimated 75 pounds of air pollution is prevented from being emitted into the air each year.

To learn more about this program or to register, visit www.baaqmd.gov/vbb.

The other program, which was relaunched on Wednesday, has been around since 2019 in the Bay Area but ran out of funding until Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the new state budget in recent weeks. This program, known as Clean Cars For All, is funded with money from the state’s cap-and-trade program, which requires polluting industries to purchase permits to release greenhouse gases, then uses the money to fund programs to reduce emissions that contribute to climate change.

The Clean Cars For All program pays $ 5,000 to $ 7,000 for people who wish to purchase a used or new hybrid vehicle, provided it is no more than eight years old. Grants for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles range from $ 5,500 to $ 9,500. This is in addition to federal and state tax credits and discounts available on the purchase of many zero-emission vehicles. Air District grants of $ 7,500 are also available for transit passes, e-bikes and carsharing.

To be eligible, residents must live in the Bay Area and meet income criteria. Singles earning $ 51,520 per year or less are eligible. The limit for a family of four is $ 106,000 per year.

Entrants must also live in one of 76 Bay Area zip codes selected by the Air District. These communities include areas with higher levels of air pollution and other factors, such as lower household income or education. They include parts of Oakland, Richmond, San Jose, Redwood City, San Francisco, and other areas among the Bay Area’s 176 total zip codes.

Individuals participating in this program must return a vehicle of the 2005 model year or older, registered in the Bay Area for two years and running. The funding they receive from the Air District must be used to purchase an electric, hybrid or other car, electric bicycle, or transit passes. For more information or to register, visit www.baaqmd.gov/cleancarsforall

An Oakland nonprofit, GRID Alternatives, is also helping those interested in the program. You can reach him at 855-256-3656 or cleancars@gridalternatives.org

“The benefits of renewable energy – clean air, good jobs, reduced fuel and energy costs – shouldn’t be reserved for the privileged,” said Arthur Bart-Williams, executive director of GRID Alternatives.

While Tesla largely maintained its vehicle prices in the third quarter, the company has now started the fourth quarter of 2021 with a new round of price increases. The new price increases affect the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y, the company’s two high-volume vehicles.

Tesla’s vehicle prices this year have been subject to numerous adjustments, with prices for the company’s current S3XY lineup being adjusted several times in the first half of 2021. Price adjustments were tempered in the third quarter, however. , except for the cost adjustment by the company. of the base models S and X in August.

With the recent price adjustments in place, the Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus now starts at $ 41,990 before incentives, an increase of $ 2,000. The Model 3 Performance also saw a price increase of $ 1,000, with the vehicle now starting at $ 57,990 before incentives. Interestingly enough, the Model 3 Dual Motor AWD price remained stable at $ 49,990 before incentives.

The Tesla Model 3 Standard Range Plus is currently listed with an estimated delivery date of April 2022. Orders for the Model 3 Dual Motor AWD are listed with an estimated delivery date of December 2021, and Model 3 Performance orders are listed with delivery in November 2021. estimate.

On the Model Y front, Tesla adjusted the price of the Long Range variant of the vehicle by $ 1,000, with the all-electric crossover now starting at $ 54,990 before the incentives. The price of the Tesla Model Y Performance also saw an increase of $ 1,000 to $ 61,990 before the incentives. Estimated delivery dates for the Model Y Long Range are listed as April 2022, while the Model Y Performance is listed with an estimated delivery date as December 2021.

The Tesla Model S and Model X have not been affected by the recent round of price adjustments.

Tesla’s prices this year have been volatile, but despite this, demand for the company’s electric cars appears to be stable. Tesla’s numbers have so far continued to grow quarterly this year, with the third quarter of 2021 even beating TSLA bulls’ estimates with 241,300 vehicle deliveries. For context, Tesla delivered half a million vehicles in 2020, which was already a remarkable achievement in itself.

What about power?

The Model S Plaid is the fastest car Edmunds has ever tested. Its three electric motors combine to produce a staggering 1,020 horsepower, enough to launch it from zero to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds.

The Lucid Air Dream Edition line is how you get the 520 miles of range that make the headlines. It develops a robust 933 horsepower, but that’s not enough to trouble the Plaid. If you don’t mind sacrificing some range for total oomph, you’ll need the Lucid Air Dream Edition performance. The engines produce a total of 1,111 horsepower; it’s a bit slower than the Tesla, but Lucid cites a 0-100 km / h time that is slightly slower by 2.5 seconds.

We know the AMG EQS will produce 649 horsepower, or up to 751 horsepower with an optional overboost feature. It is estimated to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. But since important statistics like range and price are not yet available, we are not using them for this comparison. The EQS 580 4Matic, however, develops 516 horsepower and 611 lb-ft of torque. It’s still enough to get you out of bed in the morning, but Mercedes’ estimated 0-100 km / h time in 4.1 seconds will get you back the roses if you’re running for good.

Up to dollars and cents

Perhaps the most important number when it comes to any of these EVs is the size of the hole they’re going to burn in your pocket when you sign the dotted line. The Air is by far the more expensive of the three and costs $ 169,000 in Dream Edition specs. The Performance and Range versions cost the same, so which one you get depends on your personal preferences.

The EQS is cheaper than the Lucid, but it’s not exactly cheap. Fully loaded 580 4Matic Pinnacle models cost $ 126,360, on par with the S Plaid model. The Tesla can go from 0 to 60 in just 2.3 seconds, but it can empty your wallet even faster. The Plaid starts at $ 129,990, and that’s before you added the $ 10,000 option for Tesla’s much-vaunted self-driving capability feature.

Edmunds says

Buyers looking for their next premium electric vehicle have a lot more to choose from than the previous Model S by default. Tesla’s global performance is hard to argue with, but some competitors are offering a more attractive price or a better range.

You’d think a record car production since World War II would be bad for business, but many dealerships are taking advantage of the congested supply chain.

Rick Ricart, president of Ricart Automotive Group in Columbus, OH, told Morning Brew that a recent sale that would have taken four hours before the chip shortage was closed in 52 minutes. Customers no longer wait for the arrival of a model with additional functionality, because no one knows for sure when it will be.

“I love this world,” said Brian Miller, president of Manhattan Motorcars and owner of luxury car dealers in New York City. Sales are down 20%, he said, and depending on the model, customers are waiting six to 18 months for their new car due to the semiconductor shortage. Yet 95% of everything that comes in sells almost immediately, so Miller is happy.

The dire shortage of semiconductors has slowed factories around the world. As a result, lower production means $ 210 billion in lost revenue for the industry this year. And yet, Haig Partners reports that dealer profits jumped 197% in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020.

Auto retailers enjoy lower operating costs with less inventory, and the imbalance between supply and demand means buyers pay more for new and used vehicles, sometimes thousands of dollars above the price. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Sales volume fell 26%, leaving franchise owners scrambling to find inventory to fill their empty lots. Tim Fuller, part owner of Hunter Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Fiat in Lancaster, Calif., Said his 7-acre lot typically holds 1,200 vehicles, but currently only exhibits 200.

Without its usual stock of new high-end sports cars for sale, Manhattan Motors salespeople have shifted their tactics to calling old customers, asking if they wanted to end a lease or sell their third or fourth car. The same is happening in Ohio. “People are selling cars to us for more money than they bought them a year ago,” Ricart said.

Other owners also had to get creative. According to Fuller at Lancaster, one automaker has announced that it is monitoring DMV records to make sure delivered cars are already sold, as some dealerships appear to be faking sales to acquire more inventory.

Unable to get its usual batch of higher trim level Ford F-150s that require nearly 2,000 semiconductors each, Ricart turned to developers – aftermarket companies like Roush Performance – who buy vehicles from from separate manufacturers’ lease pools to bolster them with big tires and a lift. kits. Ricart will take as much as he can get his hands on.

“What is surprising is that the average selling price of these trucks is around $ 100,000 and consumer demand is still so high,” he said.

But the money left on the table because of lost opportunities is a frustration that dealers in all marquees feel. Fortunately, the shortage is also being offset by the strong used car market and rising service revenues now that customers are keeping their vehicles longer rather than replacing them.

“Our used car volume has increased by 30% this year, which was absolutely necessary as our new volume is down a little more than that,” Ricart said.

This change has been good for the bottom line of the industry. All dealerships interviewed for this story declined to share revenue figures, but AutoNation, the largest auto retailer in the United States, reported record second quarter 2021 revenue of $ 7 billion with profits. gross of $ 4,157 per new vehicle sold, nearly $ 2,000 more than the previous year and 130% compared to the second quarter of 2019.

Sonic Auto Group, one of the nation’s largest auto retailers, also achieved record quarterly second-quarter revenue of $ 3.4 billion, up 58.7% from a year earlier. . However, small single-point operators can be more negatively impacted than large automotive groups.

“We still have people working here who need to make a living and feed their families,” said Fuller, whose only location sells vehicles produced by Stellantis. “[They’re] not going to earn that much without selling more volume.

With a diversity of brands to help them stay afloat, Ricart says he’s been successful in keeping his team of 550 employees, and despite fewer sales, sustained activity means salespeople are making more money.

The limited supply not only increased the sale price, it significantly reduced the need to advertise. There are no fights between dealerships to make a sale, and the nationwide shortage of inventory has all but eliminated negotiation, according to Ricart and Miller.

Stephanie Brinley, Senior Automotive Analyst at IHS Markit, expects the situation to stabilize in the first half of 2022. Nonetheless, rising backorders and increased consumer demand for electronics mean it will take a lot of time for supply to balance with demand. Another reminder that the pandemic is not yet over.

But from Miller’s perspective, there was excesses in the market before the pandemic, and he’s not eager for manufacturers to return to “normal” production levels. “We have a fair price and the customers are happy,” he said. “And there aren’t too many cars. For me, that’s how it should be.”

The electric vehicle revolution is finally starting to arrive in India. We already have a few cars on sale and Tata Motors has sold over 10,000 units of electric vehicles in the Indian market. Many more cars will be launched in the Indian market this year and next. Here is a list of vehicles that are confirmed to be launched in India, while a few more vehicles are expected to be launched in the Indian market.

Tesla model 3

Planned launch: Early 2022

Even though Tesla has received approval to launch four models in the Indian market, there is no confirmation from the manufacturer yet. Tesla has already started testing the Model 3 in the Indian market and it is expected to arrive in early 2022.

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

The Model 3 is the entry-level car from the American electric car maker, but due to the lack of tax exemptions from the Indian government, it will fetch a price of over Rs 50 lakhs in the Indian market. If there is good demand for the Model 3 in India, Tesla will likely launch its other car models in the Indian market.

Mahindra eKUV

Planned launch: End of 2021

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

Mahindra presented the eKUV at Auto Expo 2020. Mahindra even published the price of the vehicle. However, it has yet to be launched in the Indian market. Mahindra is now ready with the eKUV and the launch is expected to take place by the end of this year.

The new car will become the most affordable electric vehicle in India. While Mahindra is unlikely to change the specs, we could see two different variations targeting different audiences. The eKUV concept came with a 15.9 kWh battery that powered a single electric motor mounted on the vehicle’s front axle. The electric motor produced a maximum of 54 hp or 40 kW and 120 Nm of maximum torque.

Tata Altroz ​​EV

Planned launch: 2022

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

Tata has become one of the most successful electric vehicle manufacturers in India in recent times. The brand offers the Nexon EV and the Tigor EV in India. Tata is also working on the Altroz ​​EV and will launch the new car next year. Since the Altroz ​​is based on a different ALFA platform, we can see different batteries and electric motors in the car compared to the Nexon and Tigor.

Maruti Suzuki WagonR EV

Planned launch: 2022

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

Maruti Suzuki has moved away from diesel engines and is now focusing on alternative fuels like CNG. The largest Indian brand is also working on the launch of electric vehicles in the Indian market. Maruti Suzuki started testing 50 units of WagonR EV in the Indian market a few years ago. The automaker will launch the electrified version of the WagonR by 2022. However, a report suggests that Maruti Suzuki is still years away from the official launch of its first electric car and it is likely that it will be 2025 before we see the first Maruti Suzuki. . electric vehicle.

BYD e6

Planned launch: 2022

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

Chinese manufacturer BYD plans to enter the Indian market. The first car from them will likely be the BYD e6 which they have been testing on Indian roads for some time. The mid-size SUV-style car is powered by a 71.7 kWh battery that powers a 94 hp electric motor. It can reach a top speed of 130 km / h. It comes with a fast charging system which can charge the battery to 100% in just 1.5 hours.

Renault Kwid

Electric vehicle launches for India in 2020 and 2021: Tesla Model 3 to Tata Altroz ​​EV

Renault has already launched the Kwid EV in the Chinese market. The French manufacturer has indicated the Indian launch. However, Renault has not confirmed the launch date in the Indian market. The Kwid sedan will be a perfect car for the city limits and will have a range of around 200 km per full charge.

Oct. 2 (Reuters) – Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) said on Saturday it delivered a record third quarter electric car, beating Wall Street estimates after chief executive Elon Musk asked staff to “go super hardcore “to make a quarter-end of push delivery.

Tesla weathered the chip crisis better than its rivals, with overall shipments increasing 20% ​​between July and September from its previous high in the second quarter, marking the sixth consecutive quarter-over-quarter gain. .

In China, increased exports to Europe and the introduction of a cheaper Model Y have helped boost Tesla’s production, analysts say.

Musk said Tesla suffered from an extremely severe parts shortage at the start of the third quarter and urged employees to push deliveries to the end of the quarter, Reuters reported last month, citing an internal email from the business.

“The end-of-quarter delivery wave is unusually high this time around,” he said in the email.

Tesla delivered 241,300 vehicles worldwide between July and September, up 73% from the previous year. Analysts expected the electric car maker to deliver 229,242 vehicles, according to data from Refinitiv.

General Motors (GM.N), Honda (7267.T) and some of its biggest rivals saw lower sales in the United States in the third quarter, hit by a prolonged shortage of chips. GM’s sales in the United States in the third quarter fell nearly 33% to their lowest level in more than a decade. Read more

Tesla said it delivered 232,025 of its Model 3 compact cars and Model Y sport utility vehicles and 9,275 of its flagship Model S and Model X cars to customers during the quarter.

Total production in the third quarter increased by more than 15% to 237,823 vehicles from the previous quarter.

CHINA

Gary Black, portfolio manager at the Future Fund and a bull of Tesla, said Tesla deliveries were driven by record deliveries to China, which “put an end to any idea of ​​slowing Chinese demand.”

Tesla faces intense scrutiny from regulators and the public and growing competition from its local rivals.

Tesla has yet to release its September China sales, and in August its Shanghai plant exported more than two-thirds of its vehicles to Europe and Asian countries.
