Tesla começa a produzir em larga escala telhas que geram energia solar (e são mais baratas do que as telhas convencionais) - The Greenest Post. 10 out 2017 A telha solar da Tesla já foi testada, aprovada e agora está sendo comercializada em pequena escala em Fremont, na Califórnia. Além de resistente – Elon Musk garante que o produto dura mais de 50 anos! –, a tecnologia promete ser mais barata do que um modelo de telha comum. Com tanto sucesso, a Tesla anunciou que a produção em larga escala da telha solar já tem endereço: Buffalo, em Nova York. A meta é produzir, em telhas, o equivalente à geração de 2 gigawatts/ano, apenas nesta primeira fábrica. Jéssica Miwa Mãe do Gael, Googler, jornalista e cofundadora do The Greenest Post.

Tesla cria supercarregador que abastece veículos elétricos em segundos - The Greenest Post.

14 fev 2017 Mesmo os veículos elétricos sendo cada vez mais adequados ao modelo de consumidor moderno, que considera os fatores ambientais na hora da compra, algumas pessoas ainda zombam da ideia de ter que plugar seu carro numa tomada e esperar a bateria carregar. O CEO da Tesla, Elon Musk, alegou ter a solução para este problema: um supercarregador capaz de abastecer a bateria dos carros Tesla em questão de segundos.

O novo modelo do Supercharger V3 consegue servir pelo menos 350 kW, mais que o dobro de potência dos carregadores atuais. Os modelos V2 atuais da Tesla já são os mais rápidos do mundo. Com potência de 150 kW são capazes de dar carga completa em uma bateria automotiva levando apenas alguns minutos. Mas há sempre espaço para melhorias. A implementação inicial deste projeto se dará apenas nos Estados Unidos. Notícia do Autoblog Fotos: Tesla Guilherme Lupino.

Model X is designed with safety as the first priority.

The floor-mounted battery lowers the center of gravity so that the risk of rollover is about half that of any vehicle in its class. The battery structure strengthens Model X against side impact intrusions. And without a gasoline engine, the large front trunk acts as a giant impact-absorbing crumple zone. Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet conducted crash testing on Model X, Tesla's own internally conducted crash testing indicates that Model X should be the first SUV to receive the highest safety rating in every category.

Active safety technologies, including collision avoidance and automatic emergency braking, have begun rolling out through over-the-air updates.

Elon Musk's new boring company aims to build 30 levels of tunnels for cars and Hyperloop. Reddit Tweet Share Email Elon Musk confirmed that he really is starting to a new tunneling company and as with many of his other side projects, it’s starting right there at SpaceX. He shed new light on the project yesterday in an interview with Bloomberg, announcing that the venture will be an independent venture aimed at building vast underground transportation networks for cars and high speed trains such as the Hyperloop. What’s in a Name? Musk’s sense of humor is evident in the list of potential names for the company, Elon even going so far as to consider trolling Toys “R” Us in suing: “My other idea was to call it Tunnels R Us and to essentially troll Toys “R” Us into filing a lawsuit,” the slightly deranged CEO cackled.

Ultimately, he settled on The Boring Company which in and of itself is loaded with wordplay. To kick off this rather mundane company, Elon and SpaceX have a leader in charge but no full time staff though it has secured a domain over at BoringCompany.com. Disruption. Top Ten Facts about Tesla’s $350/kWh (DC) PowerWall battery | Catalytic Engineering. Special post by Bruce Lin and Matthew Klippenstein [Edit May 11 – corrected PG&E peak price to $0.36 not $0.40/kWh – $0.36 was used in the calculation] There’s an MBA joke about scaring your clients by asking them “What’s your China strategy?”.

Today, it’s “What’s your Tesla strategy?” $350/kWh (DC) retail really is that significant. Here are our top ten conclusions, with plenty of links to reference information. 1. The “92% efficiency” figure quoted by Tesla isn’t as good as it sounds, but it doesn’t matter. You have to add a AC-DC inverter (with 97% efficiency each direction), so your real-world AC-AC round trip efficiency drops to 87%. 2. It’s likely that the battery packs are two modules identical to (or very similar to) the Tesla Model S design, in order to achieve production synergies. 92% efficiency can only be achieved by running the battery at extremely low current, to minimize resistance losses.

This isn’t a show-stopper – the achievement of $350/kWh (DC) is still significant. Forbes Welcome. Tesla | Electrek. Tesla Model S P85D version 7 Autopilot Auto Steering Demo on City Streets, Highway, Traffic. Tesla unveils the Model X – the world’s longest range electric SUV. "Any type of car can go electric," says Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors.

This week, the company unveiled their Model X, a fully electric SUV that has the electric accelleration that Tesla is known for (0-60 in 3.2 seconds) and travels 250 miles on a single charge. Being described as "the safest SUV ever," it is the first SUV to have a 5 star safety rating in every category. Musk explains that the star rating is not a statistical number, but of a rough reference point. For every star, 2 and up, you begin to reduce your chance of serious injury in a high speed accident by 5%. So, whereas a 2 star rating means a 25% chance of serious injury, 5 star means a 10% chance. The Model X has a 6.5% chace of injury in a serious accident, surpassing the 5 star safety review. The car has ultrasonic sensors and radar that will cause it to automatically brake to avoid a collision and steer you away to avoid side impact.

And, of course, the car produces no emissions. Here is Musk at the press release. Concepts Preview Shared Platform For Porsche, Audi Premium EVs? Porsche Mission E concept, 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show Porsche Mission E Concept - 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show live photos Image 1 / 26 To those who want a luxury vehicle with an all-electric powertrain, California’s Tesla Motors has had the market under wraps for many years. But that’s slated to change quite soon, as each of the German automakers prepare all-electric vehicles. And there are some strong hints in the Porsche Mission E concept car from the Frankfurt Motor Show that the German sports-car brand might be one of the first to push out an electric-car model that doesn’t even allow space for traditional internal-combustion engines.

Germans Vs Tesla In High-End Electric Cars: Will Fast Charging Follow In Time? Porsche Mission E concept, 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show Porsche Mission E Concept - 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show live photos Image 1 / 48 Arguably the most stunning car at this week's Frankfurt Motor Show was the Porsche Mission E, a low, sleek all-electric sport sedan that is likely to go into production within three or four years.

It stole much of the limelight from the other all-electric debut, the Audi e-tron Quattro Concept, a lightly disguised version of what will become the Audi Q6 sporty crossover utility vehicle offered with a variety of powertrains. But the Porsche was the more important, so it's worth looking at what it represents for the industry, for electric cars, and for electric-car startup Tesla Motors.

DON'T MISS: How Audi, BMW & Mercedes Plan To Compete With Tesla--And Why (Dec 2014) Porsche was arguably the prestige carmaker most startled by the late 2012 arrival of the Tesla Model S. That electric luxury sedan was lauded not only in the U.S. Tesla Model 3 Will Benefit From Lowest Battery Costs Of Any Maker: Jefferies. The Tesla Model 3 electric sedan will start production in 2017, if the carmaker can keep to its schedule.

Tesla is aiming for a 200-mile range and $35,000 base price, in the hope that it can significantly increase volume with a more-affordable product. Whether Tesla can actually achieve those two targets has been the subject of much speculation. DON'T MISS: Tesla Model 3: Revealed Next Year, Production Starts 2017, Company Confirms One party that seems confident in Tesla's abilities is investment firm Jefferies. A Jefferies analyst believes Tesla will be able to appreciably reduce battery costs for Model 3 production, according to Street Insider. This is largely due to the economies of scale offered by Tesla's enormous "Gigafactory," and anticipated advances in battery chemistry. Jefferies believes this could reduce cell costs 50 percent by 2020, ensuring the Model 3's economic viability.

These and other changes are expected to yield efficiency benefits. O Super Carro elétrico Tesla modelo S. What it's like to own a Tesla Model S - A cartoonist's review of his magical space car. The Tesla Model S P85D just broke Consumer Reports’ scoring system by earning more points than they give. The Tesla Model S P85D hit the market last December and Consumer Reports did what they do best; they evaluated the heck out of it. The electric luxury car performed so well in nearly every test that is somehow managed to rack up 103 points in a system that doesn’t go past 100. Essentially, the P85D is the best performing and most energy efficient car Consumer Reports has ever tested – so much so that the test team had to overhaul the scoring system just to make sense of the car’s amazing rating. The P85D’s astounding 103-point rating is a calculation of “raw” points, which it earned by performing so much better than the standards by which cars are judged.

The Model S variant scored so well, in fact, that Consumer Reports was forced to reconfigure its scoring methodology to account for the car being so awesome. It was the P85D’s insanely responsive acceleration and incredible energy efficiency that blew all expectations out of the water. + Consumer Reports Images via Tesla Motors. Musk’s new Tesla gets extra credit in respected auto test. Tesla's Model III goes 200 miles per charge and costs $35,000. So Elon Musk's Hyperloop Is Actually Getting Kinda Serious. The Hyperloop sounds like science fiction, Elon Musk’s pipe dream: leapfrog high speed rail and go right to packing us into capsules that fling us across the country in hours using what are, essentially, pneumatic tubes. It sounds crazy, when you think about it. It’s starting to look a little less crazy.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced today that it has signed agreements to work with Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum and global engineering design firm Aecom. The two companies will lend their expertise in exchange for stock options in the company, joining the army of engineers from the likes of Boeing and SpaceX already lending their time to the effort.

“It’s a validation of the fact that our model works,” says Dirk Ahlborn, CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies.

Go Back to Top. Tesla announces bigger battery pack (90kWh, 300-mile range), 'ludicrous' mode: 0-to-60 in 2.8 seconds. Tesla has a very interesting product cycle. Unlike other automakers, they don't release new features every few years based on model years. Teslas get new features when they're ready - like the Autopilot sensors - and sometimes whole models are upgraded, like when they recently announced that the 60kWh model would go away and be replaced by a 70kWh all-wheel drive model.

Today on a conference call, Elon Musk announced a few new options and features. The most practical is the unveiling of a new 90kWh option costing $3,000. It'll bring the driving range to 300 miles, more than enough for most people (at least until you have to stop to eat, go the the bathroom, etc, the perfect time for Supercharging). Spaceballs/Screen capture Ludicrous Mode. The less practical, but more impressive, announcement is for a new mode on the P90D model.

As Jalopnik points out: "That also means the Tesla Model S will now accelerate with the force of 1.1G, which means it’ll actually feel faster than falling. " Gigafactory to be biggest building on Earth? Tesla buys additional 1,200 acres, could make it twice as big as original plans. More batteries needed for home and utility storage? Tesla's Gigafactory, which is currently under construction in Nevada, is truly deserving of its giga prefix. The goal is to make as much battery pack capacity in that single factory in 2020 (50 gigawatt-hour, enough for 500,000 EVs per year) as the whole world was making last year. The original plan called for a 10 million square-foot building, but made in a modular way so that once the first part is done, it can be operated as a pilot plant while the rest is finished and ramps up. Well, apparently 10 million sq-ft isn't giga enough for Elon Musk. You can see Haymore's presentation here: If the Gigafactory truly ends up being 24 million square-foot, that would make it the biggest building in the world (based on footprint) according to Wikipedia.

. © Tesla While this isn't official yet, it isn't that far fetched, since Musk mentioned the possibility of adding capacity during the company's last quarterly call. Tesla/Screen capture. Tesla's gigantic factory in California shot in glorious 4K video by a drone. The Tesla factory in Fremont, California, used to be called the NUMMI plant. It was a very innovative joint venture between GM and Toyota, where both companies learned from each other and worked on shared projects.

It is actually the second largest building on Earth by footprint, and like the Tesla Gigafactory which is under construction, just seeing it from ground level really doesn't do it justice. That's why this beautiful drone footage from Stephen Powelson (a former Tesla employee) is so cool. It's also a good reminder that what used to be done by do-it-yourself types in their garages is now definitely going large scale. I encourage you to check it out in full screen at high resolution: A bit eerie how there's nobody around, but that's because this was shot on July 3rd, which was a holiday.

But you know what's missing from the Tesla factory? Here's a striking image showing a bunch of Model S (with paint protection on the hood) that appear ready to be shipped: Youtube/Screen capture. The Influence Vedic Philosophy Had On Nikola Tesla’s Idea Of Free Energy. The Properties of Space Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them. One example is “free energy,” also known as “zero-point energy,” which utilizes the substance that exists all around us and converts it into usable energy.

This would give us a limitless source of energy, and would practically wipe out all poverty on the planet. The properties of space have been postulated by many, from ancient Vedic philosophy, Eastern Mystics, various ancient civilizations throughout human history all the way to Descartes, Einstein, Newton and more. “And they allowed Apollonius to ask questions; and he asked them of what they thought the cosmos was composed; but they replied; “Of elements.”

Science now knows that a material universe as the foundation of what we perceive to be our physical material world isn’t quite the case. “Mr. Sources: Elon Musk: The World's Raddest Man.
