Tesla driver shares insights after Model 3 gets banned from racing events

Teslarati

There was a time when electric vehicles were not really taken seriously by automotive enthusiasts. After the original Tesla Roadster and the Model S, however, it became more and more difficult to ignore the fact that EVs can perform against combustion-powered cars in competitive events. By the time the Model 3 Performance came into the picture, the anti-EV narrative had already shifted to the idea that electric cars are only good for straight-line races, not the track.

10 EVs that lease for under $400/month: Ioniq 5, Solterra, Niro, Ioniq 6, Model Y, more

Electrek

There’s a loophole in the stricter IRA federal tax credit that only applies $3750 rebates on North American-built cars and separately $3750 on domestic batteries. For whatever reason, all EVs get the full $7500 applied to leases, however. So that has more people leasing EVs than ever before. The number of electric vehicle models that can be leased for less than $400/month has grown by 50% since last August.

In a forever changing world it is good to see these robots finally coming into production where they can help out at the domestic level. Humans should be appreciated and given the credit that they are, and not valued by how much a robot they can be.

I’ve been testing out a new headlamp called the that isn’t specifically meant for cyclists, but has proven perfect for me as a way to add both front and rear LED lighting to pretty much any helmet.

Comment on BYD Yangwang launches U9 electric supercar with starting price of $233,500 by John Hanna

CN EV Post

The comparison of the U9 to the acceleration of " a model with a a12 cyl. ICE " is a bit odd. Tesla's Model S plaid - a full size sedan, is quicker than this U9 sports car. If this is the quickest they can make a sports car, I understand why they're not giving acceleration specifics of its still-to-come U7 sedan - just vague "pushing the limits" verbiage.
