Getting back to Subhuman, he/she/it summarized on hypothesis like this: “This is Big Oil’s last chance to try and kill Tesla before it gets to the point of no return. Some would argue that we have already reached the point of no return but vested interest have not excepted that yet.”

There are a couple of things to consider with that inference. One is that Big Oil is directly or indirectly funding much of the Tesla smearing you see out there in the media. That’s possible. There are indeed oil-funded Tesla and EV smear campaigns. (This is not debatable.) But how much that drives the narrative is uncertain and is highly debatable.

VW ID 3 racks up 10,000 deposits in first day

Eric C. Evarts

Three years after Tesla started taking $1,000 reservations for its Model 3, Volkswagen is racking up similar orders for its upcoming ID 3 hatchback in Europe.

Perhaps not to the degree, sure. Tesla amassed 180,000 orders for its "affordable" long-range electric car in one day in the US, while VW took 10,000 first-day deposits on the day it opened reservations for the ID 3 hatchback.

Still, the advanced orders are a hopeful sign for VW, after Tesla, Nissan, GM, and other automakers got a head start in building long-range electric cars.

Volkswagen said the orders exceeded its expectations, and said that in some cases its computer systems couldn't keep up with the deposits.

The company is booking reservations for the first edition of the ID 3, the ID 3 1ST, which comes with the long-range 62-kilowatt-hour battery pack, as well as 2,000 kwh of free public charging at Ionity fast charging stations around Europe.

The 62-kwh battery is expected to give the ID 3 a range of 260 miles on the notably generous European WLTP driving cycle. A shorter range, 48-kwh, is expected to deliver closer to 200 miles.

VW says the ID 3 will go into production by the end of 2019—about six months later than its original estimate—and the first cars will be delivered in Europe in mid-2020.

Volkswagen has no plans to sell the ID 3 the US, though it does plan to import future electric cars based on the ID 3's platform to the US, starting with the ID Crozz later in 2020.

Tesla Model 3


Agelbert COMMENT: In a sane country, the Federal Reserve would be tasked, for the good of society and the environment (SEE: "Common welfare" clause of the U.S. Constitution), with providing zero interest loans for EVs. They would also be tasked with covering all capital costs of long term leasing for EV manufacturers.

For example, the Tesla Model 3 EASILY lasts ten years. Lease payments for ten years, even in the most expensive LR Model 3, would be within the reach of most Americans.

But we do not live in a sane country.

⚡ Drone delivery

April 23, 2019

SNIPPET:

Google parent Alphabet just beat Amazon to the punch in an incredibly important business: ⚡ Drone deliveries.

Wing, an Alphabet subsidiary focused on commercial ⚡ drones, has received approval from the FAA to operate as an airline (Agelbert NOTE: i.e. "Air Carrier Certification"), a certification that will allow it to move ahead with plans to experiment with drone deliveries in the US, a service it has already launched in parts of Australia (the suburbs around North Canberra) to mixed reviews.

However, Wing will need to move quickly if it wants to stay ahead of the competition, because the regulatory win has cleared the way for its competitors to seek approvals of their own.

This Is How It’s Gonna Go Down (With Tesla)

SNIPPET:

To have a little fun and to have something to check on later to see how crazy I am, I decided to come up with a forecast on some major Tesla milestones. I have a feeling this is not a smart thing to do, but I’m going to do it anyway. Here’s my wild ass guess at how it’s gonna go down with Tesla:

In 2018, Tesla Model 3 becomes one of the 5 best selling cars in the USA in the second half of the year and the 11th best selling car for the full year. (Easy one.)

In second half of 2018, Tesla Model 3 becomes best selling vehicle in California. (Another easy one.)

In 2019, Tesla Model 3 becomes best selling luxury vehicle (all classes) in USA. (Okay, the last “easy” one.)

In 2019, Tesla Model 3 becomes best selling vehicle in Norway.

In 2019, Tesla Model 3 is again one of the 15 best selling cars in the USA, and the best selling luxury car.

In 2020, Tesla Model 3 reaches 500,000 sales in a year.

In 2020, Tesla Model 3 is one of the 5 best selling cars in the USA.

In 2021, Tesla Model Y is one of the 10 best selling vehicles in USA and Model is again one of the 10 best selling vehicles.

In 2022, Tesla reaches 1 million vehicle sales in a year. (This is slightly behind Elon Musk’s forecast of 1.1 million sales in 2021.)

In 2024, Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are two of the world’s 15 best selling vehicles.

In 2025, Tesla is one of the world’s 5 best selling automakers.

What are your thoughts? Where do you think I’m crazy? Where do you think I’m spot on? 🧐

Note: Some of these forecasts could get screwed up if certain Chinese automakers blow up in size and their hottest models take control of global sales charts.

Agelbert COMMENT: 👍🍀I would add a slight modification to the events of 2021😀.

In 2021, Tesla Model Y is one of the 10 THE best selling vehicle in the USA due to the Electric Vehicle for Internal Combustion Engine Polluting Clunker Legislation passed by the Democratic Party controlled Senate and House of Representatives.

One month after being inaugurated, President Sanders signed this portion of extensive Green New Deal Legislation working its way through Congress to get the USA off of biosphere degrading hydrocarbon fuels.

A consortium of you know who (i.e. 🐉🦕🦖) corporations hired former Attorney General Barr 😈 to challenge this Legislation on the basis that it undermined National Security (i.e. 🐉🦕🦖) and was Super UnConstitutional. Barr stated that, "This energy sector (i.e. 🐉🦕🦖) and economy (i.e.💵🎩👹🍌) destroying Socialist/Communist evil gross attack on the freedom of all red blooded Americans (i.e.💵🐉🦕🦖🎩) will be overturned by the Supreme Court".

December 2021: Four Supreme Court Justices, all of whom were named by Republican Presidents, abruptly resigned within days of President Sanders signing into Law the recent Legislation authorizing a new total of 15 Justices for the Supreme Court.

December 25, 2021 🎄: According to Vice President Elizabeth Warren, the names of some of those being considered for the Supreme Court are Jay Inslee, Bill McKibben, Jill Stein and James Hansen.

SNIPPET:
All of Harbour Air’s flights are 30 minutes or less, making electric ⚡ air mobility ideal. By retrofitting new technology to an older existing platform, the airline continues to expand its product lifecycle. In terms of economy, the cost is the same as upgrading to a turbine engine. The benefit is that electric ⚡ motors don’t need to be rebuilt every 2,500 to 3,000 hours. Maintenance is much lower.

Tesla boom lifts Norway's electric ⚡ car sales to record market share 😀
Source: Reuters

Almost 60 percent of all new cars sold in Norway in March were fully electric, the Norwegian Road Federation (NRF) said on Monday, a global record as the country seeks to end fossil-fueled vehicles sales by 2025.

Exempting battery engines from taxes imposed on diesel and petrol cars has upended Norway’s auto market, elevating brands like Tesla and Nissan, with its Leaf model, while hurting sales of Toyota, Daimler and others.

In 2018, Norway’s fully electric car sales rose to a record 31.2 percent market share from 20.8 percent in 2017, far ahead of any other nation, and buyers had to wait as producers struggled to keep up with demand.

The surge of electric cars to a 58.4 percent market share in March came as Tesla ramped up delivery of its mid-sized Model 3, which retails from 442,000 crowns ($51,400), while Audi began deliveries of its 652,000-crowns e-tron sports utility vehicle.

Published on Dec 14, 2014

The culmination of years of work, here is a first peak at my solar powered airship design. This one is intended to operate as a drone. I also wish to eventually make larger and higher performance airships for other purposes, like private aircraft and cargo transportation.

The advantages of this drone design is that it is long range and high endurance because it can be flown on solar power.
