    Very informative recent study of EV owners around the world, courtesy of Evannex, showing that once switch is made, the vast majority remain fully charged! ;)

    Apart from a rather unimaginative front look (aah, these grilles!), this could possibly be one of the few intriguing options had T≡SLA not designed Model ≡... but, if final price ends up being up to £55k/€70k/$70k, i.e. much closer the low end of the Model S range, that will seriously curtail its potential... :confused:

    Decisions like this in the second most populous country in the world will have a major contribution to EV penetration at the global level within 10-15 years...

    For those of you who don't know Prof. Tony Seba from Stanford, he is the one who had been advocating about clean disruption in the transportation industry...



    Check out this (1 hour) video if you want to know more. Fascinating.

    Courtesy of Evannex, a reminder that the formidable growth potential for T≡SLA in Asia is not just in China... consider Incredible India!!

    I dedicate this post to my grandfather, who worked for Borgward ~55 years ago (note: he did not need to speak Chinese at the time...;)):

    In the meantime, Nissan is preparing to turn a new one... ;)

    Does it really look that different to you on the outside? :confused:

    Very interesting interview. Kinda open up my eyes - for one the very first time, I'll plead guilty... - to the almost inevitable yet also profitable advent of shared EVs down the road...



    Of course, as they said, a bit harder for me 'cause it's generational... ;)

    This is a very sizeable proportion, considering the total number cars sold per year is ~80 million!!! Time to beef up those EV capacities, carmakers! And, yes, there will be room for more than T≡SLA, so enough of the T≡SLA-killer nonsense! :)

    If you are still skeptical that we are on the verge of disruptional, thereby exponential growth of EV sales around the world during the next 5-10 years, and beyond, check out this excellent article by Evannex, particularly the embedded projected sales graph!! :)

    This Apple thing won't go away... :rolleyes:
    I guess there may be something to it and, as I wrote recently, the demand for EV in future years is going to be so big that it may actually be a good thing for the world rather than a concern for T≡SLA!

    Ok, as the article reminds us, it's just a concept highly unlikely to be commercially available yet it is, IMHO, a nice illustration of some of the most recent Renault design options...

    Na, wenn Angie das selbst sagt... (Well, if Angie herself says it...!)

    Go for it, Deutschland! :)
