Tesla reports best ever first quarter production and delivery numbers

  Tesla reports best ever first quarter production and delivery numbers Tesla has announced a record-breaking quarter for the company when it comes to vehicle production and delivery. The automaker manufactured 102,672 and delivered 88,400 vehicles in the first quarter of 2020 ending on March 31st. Tesla called these results its "best ever first quarter performance." It also said that its final delivery figures could be even higher, since it only counts a car as delivered if it's already transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct. The automaker didn't break the numbers down per model, but it said it produced 15,390 and delivered 12,200 Model S and X vehicles for the period.

The US electric car manufacturer Tesla has received approval for foundation work from the Brandenburg State Office for the Environment. This was announced by the spokesman for the Ministry of the Environment, Sebastian Arnold, in Potsdam.

For example, the construction of flat foundations, pipes and supports as well as the construction of construction pits are possible. Tesla can also use it to improve the underground and build an area for loading and unloading materials that are delivered by rail.

Tesla Powerwall knows when to stop charging your EV during power outages

  Tesla Powerwall knows when to stop charging your EV during power outages Tesla’s Powerwall can ironically create problems if you’re all-in on the company’s ecosystem. What happens if there’s a power outage and the battery pack has to juggle the needs of both your home and your EV? You might rest a little easier from now on. Tesleratireports that Tesla has released a Powerwall update that will coordinate with the company’s cars to prioritize charging during power outages. Charging will slow down if there’s a high load in your household during the outage, and will even stop entirely if the Powerwall dips below an “energy threshold.

Tesla wants to manufacture around 500,000 electric cars a year in its first factory in Europe in Grünheide near Berlin from 2021. Because an environmental permit in Brandenburg has not yet been completed, the company carries out the preparations on the site at its own risk. Previously, Tesla had applied to clear around 90 hectares of forest ahead of time and then level the ground.

criticism from environmentalists

conservationists fear, among other things, negative consequences for the environment and water supply. They had called for the construction of the factory to be stopped. With regard to the approval of the foundation work, the ministry spokesman said: "The approval was preceded by a thorough assessment of the environmental impact."

According to a media report, Tesla has to look for a new European boss. According to information from "Manager Magazin" , the previous post holder Sascha Zahnd does not throw the towel night in office for one year. According to this, insiders would report that Zahnd has fallen out with Tesla boss Elon Musk . The group also did not respond to a business insider request.

For example, the protection of groundwater in the drinking water protection area and requirements to protect the neighborhood from unacceptable noise were taken into account during the construction phase.

Criticism of conservationists had also met that Tesla had started to set piles on May 14th. Opponents of Tesla had criticized that the piles would enter the groundwater layer and thus interfere with the water flow. According to the Ministry of the Environment, the so-called pile test loads were initially stopped, because approval from the lower water authority was missing, but is now available.

According to information from the ministry , more than 370 objections were received against the factory project . An appointment to discuss objections was initially canceled due to the corona crisis, a new appointment has not yet been set. Tesla wants to change its earlier application for approval according to the state government - for example with the plan for a lower water consumption than initially stated.
