WORLD’S FIRST HOMEMADE TESLA TRUCK

“In a total boss move, Simone Giertz—who for a long time has wanted to own “an electric pickup truck, more specifically, a Tesla pickup,”—created her very own custom Tesla pickup, which she affectionately named “Truckla.” says Popular Mechanics: “The project took a year of planning and required a complete teardown of the car’s interior, including door panels and gaskets. Once that was done, the team moved on to frame modifications and used reciprocating saws and grinders to remove the Tesla’s roof beams. Truckla’s bed, for example, was originally the bed of a Ford F-150, while the rear window came from a GMC Canyon.

IRELAND TO BAN NEW PETROL AND DIESEL VEHICLES FROM 2030

“The Irish government plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030, as part of a major strategy to protect the environment.” reports the BBC today: “The aim is to ensure that all new cars and vans on Irish roads in 11 years’ time are electric vehicles. The proposed legislation was among 180 measures in the government’s Climate Action Plan, published on Monday. The hope is that by the time the petrol and diesel vehicle ban is introduced in 2030 there will be 950,000 electric vehicles on Irish roads. The government is set to invest in a “nationwide” charging network to power the new vehicles. By 2025, at least one recharging point will be required at new non-residential buildings with more than 10 parking spaces.”

BENTLEY TO ELECTRIFY ALL MODELS BY 2023; EV COMING IN 2025

“according to a new report from Car and Driver, the company has a timeline for its electric plans with the company’s first fully electric vehicle debuting in 2025.” says Motor1.com: “Along with its first electric vehicle, Bentley plans to hybridize every model in its lineup – the Continental GT, Flying Spur, and Mulsanne. The company will likely use the same turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 in the Bentayga that’s also rumored to power the Continental GT hybrid. Customers fearful a hybrid would neuter the brand need not worry. In the Bentayga, the gasoline-electric powertrain makes 443 horsepower (330 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque, propelling the hefty SUV to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 5.5 seconds up to a top speed of 158 mph (254 kph). Plus, the added torque boost from the 17.3-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery will feel stupendous.”

NIO BEGINS DELIVERIES OF NEW ES6 ELECTRIC CROSSOVER IN CHINA

“Nio announced on Tuesday that the first ES6 electric crossovers have been delivered to their owners in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. It’s the automaker’s second mass-production model, following the larger ES8, but the company also has the EP9 electric hypercar in its portfolio, which is impressive in its own right.” writes CNET: “With five seats onboard, the ES6 is smaller and shorter than the ES8, but its wheelbase is the same. Buyers have a choice of two powertrains: A pair of electric motors putting out 430 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, or a beefier pair that puts out 536 hp and 535 lb-ft. Buyers can also choose between a 70-kilowatt-hour battery and an 84-kWh battery, the latter of which can reach up to 317 miles by NEDC estimates, which are usually higher than EPA estimates.”

2020 PEUGEOT 2008 DEBUTS WITH BOLD SUV LOOKS AND AN EV OPTION

“After a successful first generation, Peugeot’s second-generation 2008 SUV breaks the code somewhat from the familiar formula, not the least of which is a fully electric e-2008 model we’ll touch on later.” according to Motor1: “The new electric Peugeot is visually the same as its internal-combustion-powered sibling, with the same interior space. In place of a fuel tank and engine, you’ll find a single electric motor generating 136 horsepower (101 kilowatts) and 192 pound-feet (260 Newton-meters) of instant torque. It’s driven by a rather modest 50 kWh battery, which Peugeot says is good for a range of approximately 193 miles (312 kilometers). Recharge times vary depending on the power source, but a 100kW terminal can recharge the e-2008 to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes.”

 

TESLA TO CHANGE DEFAULT MODEL 3 COLOR TO WHITE

“Elon Musk has announced that Tesla will be switching the Model 3’s standard color from Solid Black to Simple White. After these changes are implemented, Musk noted that the Model 3’s black paint option would command a $1,000 price, similar to Midnight Metallic Silver.” says Simon at Teslarati: “Utilizing a Simple White color for the Model 3’s standard paint option could play to the electric car maker’s advantages. While not as stunning as the Pearl White Multi-Coat, Simple White paint would likely attract attract far fewer scratches than the current standard Solid Black. This would likely make the Model 3 far easier to maintain, ultimately benefiting both the vehicle’s owners and Tesla itself.”

One thought on “19 June 2019 | World’s First Homemade Tesla Truck, Ireland To Ban New Petrol Vehicles and Peugeot e2008”
  1. Great show as always. Regarding the Tesla’s change to white for the basic model 3 … excellent move! The color white is hugely popular for commercial and fleet buys. They also typical buy the base model trim. A plan white vehicle is perfect for applying your company logo, signage etc. This trim and color will attract more buyers to the Model 3
