Tesla Model Y Standard Range makes a surprise launch, 7-seat option debuts

  Tesla Model Y Standard Range makes a surprise launch, 7-seat option debuts CEO Elon Musk originally said the Model Y Standard Range was dead. Now it's for sale and far cheaper than other variants.Crucially, the Model Y Standard Range drops the entry price for the electric SUV to $41,990 before other taxes and fees to become the least expensive Model Y on sale right now. It's still more expensive than the Model 3 , however, which starts at $37,790. Previously, anyone shopping Tesla's electric SUV was forced to choose between the Model Y Long Range at $49,990 or the Model Y Performance, which costs $10,000 more.

  • The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV is available with a 6.0-kW Power Station generator.
  • It technically isn't a generator. Instead, in a reversal of the charging process, it takes DC energy from the battery, converts it back to AC, and sends it out the charge port to power accessories and even other electric vehicles.
  • This"generator" will also eventually be available on the Hummer EV pickup truck model.

We recently powered a house and charged a Ford Mustang Mach-E with the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid's new available ProPower Onboard generator. The 2024 GMC Hummer EV SUV will have a similar option, called the Power Station generator, although it technically isn't a generator. The SUV goes on sale in 2023, and GMC says the generator will eventually be available on the pickup truck model, which is out this fall.

High-end branded car audio systems: Are they worth the money?

  High-end branded car audio systems: Are they worth the money? Here's a closer look at what goes into the creation of these often expensive audio upgrades.Before its partnership with Jeep , McIntosh worked directly with Harley-Davidson, Subaru and Ford on branded audio systems; the latter is exclusive to the 2005-2006 Ford GT. It also offered very high-end aftermarket car audio systems for a while, and has been around as a company since 1949.

The new Hummers are electric, and GM says the necessary cord to let them charge other electric vehicles will be included on all Hummers equipped with the Power Station. So drivers of electric off-roaders will perhaps be rescued by a friendly Hummer. This is the future of the jump start.

GMC hasn't specified the size of either model's battery, but it said the largest Ultium battery would hold 200.0 kWh. We think the SUV's will be about 167.0 kWh. In typical Level 1 (120 volt) or Level 2 (240 volt) charging, alternating current (AC) is converted to direct current (DC), and that energy is stored in the battery pack. The Power Station generator uses an inverter to convert the battery's DC energy back to AC so it can power what is plugged into its standard J1772 charging port.

Tesla’s Cybertruck Needs a Lot of Luck to Hit Its Production Target on Schedule

  Tesla’s Cybertruck Needs a Lot of Luck to Hit Its Production Target on Schedule Elon Musk floats optimistic timeline for Cybertruck production start, but deeper questions remain. Elon Musk says that Cybertruck deliveries could start by end of year, but that the company would be"lucky" to achieve this.The Cybertruck is expected to have a starting price of $39,900 and a range of 250 to 500 miles depending on version.Production-line tooling is not in place yet months ahead of the planned start, and some manufacturing methods including stainless steel stamping will be new to Tesla.For once, Tesla might begin production of a promised vehicle close to the timeline originally promised.

Its output is up to 25 amps or 3.0 kW to power 120-volt items, or up to 6.0 kW at 240 volts, although the 240-volt power can be used only to charge other EVs. This is, for reference, just shy of the 7.2-kW max output of the ChargePoint charging equipment we use at our Ann Arbor, Michigan, headquarters. The F-150's generator, which uses its internal-combustion engine to make power, is offered in three variants, outputting 2.0, 2.4, or 7.2 kW with only the most capable one offering 240-volt output.

When asked if the upcoming electric Silverado pickup would offer the Power Station generator as well, Chevy only said that the new truck is"purpose-built from the ground up as an electric full-size pickup truck and will be competitive in the marketplace." Since it's the same battery platform, it's certainly possible.

Future EVs Coming Soon to Challenge Tesla and Heat Up the Market .
Even though electric cars account for only a single-digit percentage of new car sales each year, that share is rising—and fast. Naturally, automakers (most not named “Tesla!”) are rushing in with new electric cars, and many are hoping to finally challenge Tesla head-on with appealing, aspirational future electric cars, trucks, and SUVs. The next decade will
