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.

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

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.

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. A medical grade HEPA filter strips outside air of pollen, bacteria, viruses and pollution before circulating it into the cabin. Elon Musk's new boring company aims to build 30 levels of tunnels for cars and Hyperloop.

Elon Musk's new boring company aims to build 30 levels of tunnels for cars and Hyperloop

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 Top Ten Facts about Tesla’s $350/kWh (DC) PowerWall battery. Forbes Welcome. Electrek. Tesla has announced their delivery numbers for Q4 and all of 2016.


They delivered 22,200 vehicles last quarter, with 12,700 Model S and 9,500 Model X.

"Any type of car can go electric," says Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors.

Tesla unveils the Model X – the world’s longest range electric SUV

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 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.

The rear car opens with facon wings and take up almost no space if you are jammed into a parking spot. And, of course, the car produces no emissions.

Tesla Model 3 Will Benefit From Lowest Battery Costs Of Any Maker: Jefferies

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. 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 Tesla Model S P85D just broke Consumer Reports’ scoring system by earning more points than they give

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. 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.

So Elon Musk's Hyperloop Is Actually Getting Kinda Serious

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. 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. 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. 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. The Influence Vedic Philosophy Had On Nikola Tesla’s Idea Of Free Energy.
