Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive

  Electric Vehicles are Too Damn Expensive The average Josephine on the street can’t afford to step into most electric vehicles on sale in the U.S. today, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has admitted. “Our cars are not affordable enough,” Musk said during his second-quarter earnings call in July. “We need to fix that.” Electric cars and crossovers remain far too expensive to be daily commuters for the middle- and working-classes, who in congested urban areas, at least, may be turning to e-bikes instead, an electric segment in which U.S. sales spiked 92-percent in April and 137-percent in May, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.

The sports car manufacturer reported to the Federal Motor Transport Authority, the public prosecutor's office and US authorities. It's also about the 911 and Panamera models.

Porsche is investigating possible new manipulations on its cars with an internal investigation. The Stuttgart VW subsidiary is checking whether individual models have been changed again after they have been type approved by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA).

This time, however, it is not about the notorious diesel engines from the Volkswagen Group and the associated exhaust gas manipulation, but above all about gasoline engines. The 911 and Panamera models, developed between 2008 and 2013, are affected. First, “Bild am Sonntag” reported on it.

Porsche has informed Germany's automotive watchdog KBA , the Stuttgart prosecutor's office, as well. FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Volkswagen's luxury sports vehicle unit Porsche AG has launched an internal investigation into the suspected manipulation of petrol engines, German

Porsche confirmed the in-house investigations to the Handelsblatt on Sunday due to possible illegal changes after the type approval. The Stuttgart-based VW subsidiary is consistently working on the past until 2008. "And there we found a few indications of possible misconduct," said company circles. Porsche “proactively” informed the authorities about this in early summer. These include the Stuttgart public prosecutor, the Federal Motor Transport Authority and the US judiciary. The company is interested in clearing up the processes.

Like with the other VW group brands , the diesel and exhaust gas manipulation have so far been in the foreground at Porsche. But in view of the new in-house investigations, models with gasoline engines are now under suspicion, above all the Panamera and the 911, the classics from the product range of the car manufacturer from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

Dr.-Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, usually shortened to Porsche AG, is a German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars , SUVs and sedans.

The alleged manipulation affects Porsche's core business. Gasoline engines are installed in the vast majority of the cars from Stuttgart. Diesel engines were rather the exception and have even been removed from the range in the meantime. Porsche does not provide any information about the number of vehicles now affected. But it could be a higher five-digit number of cars.

The new suspected case is said to be that Porsche engineers could have made technical changes to the cars in series production after approval by the KBA. Mechanical components and software are equally affected, it was said in Stuttgart. With the subsequent structural changes, the Porsche vehicles would have lost their road approval and would therefore be illegally on the roads. If the new suspicion is correct, the Porsche engineers would have behaved like tuners who manipulate cars without the approval of the TÜV.

consumer attorneys want to sue

In company circles it was confirmed that the KBA has started extensive investigations at Porsche. In the development departments, "every stone is currently turned around". Employees are summoned for discussions, hundreds of thousands of emails are examined and the minutes of meetings are analyzed. After such a long time, it was not easy to determine who made the changes to the cars, it said.

It is still unclear whether Porsche will face possible financial consequences from the new investigations. Consumer advocates are already positioning themselves. “We have already prepared legal steps because of suspicious fuel consumption and emissions. The new developments do not surprise us, ”says Tobias Ulbrich. The lawyer advised the consumer advice center on the model lawsuit against VW.

The public prosecutor's office could also open a new bill. The investigations against some managers are still ongoing. In May of last year, the sports car manufacturer paid a fine of 535 million euros for the diesel manipulation.
