During a speech at a TED Talks conference, Musk -- the Tesla (TSLA) and SpaceX CEO -- unveiled what he hopes to accomplish with his latest venture, The Boring Company. A new video shows a computer-generated mockup of a sprawling network of underground tunnels that vehicles can access via elevators nested near roadsides. Once underground, the video shows futuristic silver platforms whisking the cars toward their destinations.
Samsung has received approval to test self-driving vehicles in South Korea and will begin with a “Hyundai equipped with the latest cameras and sensors,” according to The Korean Herald. Little is known about Samsung’s intentions at this time. The move comes a few weeks after Apple received similar approval to test self-driving vehicles in California. Two years ago, the firm established a team to work on self-driving tech, but did not say if it planned to enter the market or simply partner with others. To test self-driving cars in the country, the company had to receive approval from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport. Hyundai, Uber, and Toyota have all went through the same approval process before.Samsung has declined to comment on the approval. It has also not said if it plans to expand the tests to Silicon Valley or Europe.
Consumers are more aware of self-driving cars, but slightly less interested in riding in them, according to two surveys conducted after a fatal crash of a Tesla equipped with self-driving technology. An online survey of more than 1,500 Americans in mid-July by AlixPartners found that overall consumer interest in self-driving dropped about three percentage points after news of the May 7 Tesla crash was reported on June 30, according to results released on Friday.
It will be Jaguar's first electric vehicle and only its second SUV ever. The all-wheel-drive I-Pace should have an EPA-estimated driving range of 220 miles, according to Jaguar Land Rover, which makes Jaguar cars. The crossover SUV was unveiled in an international press conference that included a virtual reality presentation. While reporters in both London and Los Angeles were able to see a computer-drawn virtual reality presentation, those in L.A. were presented with an actual concept vehicle driven out onto the floor among them. The I-Pace has what car designers call a "cab-forward" design with a short hood, possible because the nose of the car does not need to house a large engine. That shape allows for better aerodynamics and more interior space.
A software update to the Tesla Model S will make the electric car the second quickest vehicle in the world, capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.4 seconds. Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the update on Twitter, saying the update will be made available for the Tesla Model S P100D next month. The 0.1-second improvement moves the Tesla Model S alongside Ferrari’s LaFerrari in terms of acceleration. Only the Porsche 918 Spyder is capable of reaching 60 mph in less time.
The exterior line reflects the design ethos which ideally calls for shapes and lines to be derived from technical requirements. Its positioning was defined by the need to improve engine ventilation and ventilation performance.
SALT LAKE CITY. August 1, 2016-- Nikola (pronounced Neek-oh-la) Motor Company´s advanced R&D team has achieved 100% zero emissions on the Nikola One commercial class 8 truck. ´While other companies have recently announced battery-powered semi-trucks, those trucks are restricted to a range of only a couple hundred miles and four to eight hours of charging between stops,´ said Founder and CEO Trevor Milton. ´Nikola has engineered the holy grail of the trucking industry. We are not aware of any zero emission truck in the world that can haul 80,000 pounds more than 1,000 miles and do it without stopping. The Nikola One requires only 15 minutes of downtime before heading out for the next 1,000 miles.Â´Â´ Â´Â´Imagine what this could do for the air in every city in America. We knew our emissions would be low, but to have the ability to achieve true zero emissions is revolutionary for the worldwide trucking industry´, Milton added.
CARS? Cars are transportation. Ferraris? They are something else altogether. The 488 GTB, which is the successor to the 458, is an automobile to be sure, but also equal parts art, science, music and Six Flags roller coaster riding on an aluminum structure. Want to know what it´s like to be Oprah? Buy one of these. Fingers point. People jump and scream. Hundreds of smartphone cameras bear down on the sensuous aluminum skin. You´ve been warned.
Every car sold in India from 2030 will be electric, under new government plans that have delighted environmentalists and dismayed the oil industry. It’s hoped that by ridding India’s roads of petrol and diesel cars in the years ahead, the country will be able to reduce the harmful levels of air pollution that contribute to a staggering 1.2 million deaths per year. India’s booming economy has seen it become the world’s third-largest oil importer, shelling out $150 billion annually for the resource – so a switch to electric-powered vehicles would put a sizable dent in demand for oil. It’s been calculated that the revolutionary move would save the country $60 billion in energy costs by 2030, while also reducing running costs for millions of Indian car owners.
