    Artigo interessante. O próprio Ghosn já disse há uns tempos que os eléctricos não darão lucro para já mas sim em principio dentro de 3, 4 anos. Será um programa de rentabilidade a médio/longo prazo.

    Com o preço dos combustíveis é desejável que os carros electricos comecem a ter dimensões e autonomias adequadas às necessidades do dia a dia.
    Mas suspeito que o governo irá subir ou criar um imposto qualquer para compensar a quebra da receita dos combustíveis.
    Seja como for estamos sempre tramados

    Não precisam, dentro de pouco tempo começam a pagar por CO2 emitido, e menor importação de combustiveis e petróleo, deixar de gastar também é ganhar.

    Por Defeito Tesla Model S Alpha prototype built and rolling?

    It's been almost two years since we caught our first glimpse of Tesla's sweet, sweet Model S. The company has gone through a lot of changes since those heady days but fans of that all-electric sedan will be pleased to learn that, unlike the fate that befalls some other prototypes between parturition and production, the original design of the 2012 Model S will stay mostly intact. At least, according to a comment purportedly left by Tesla's production control manager on an Engadget post (Yeah I know, random, right?), it's just as sexy. He also states that, and we quote, "....And, boy, did that thing run!..."

    The company's plan had called for the Alpha to be completed in 2010 and it seems they hit that mark even though it was not rolled out for the press. If the report is true – and Tesla is refusing to comment on it, which makes us think it is – then we expect to not only see it soon, but perhaps also get our sweaty little hands on some action video. Also mentioned in this somewhat lengthy comment were a couple other possible "facts." The battery pack, as one might have guessed, is filled with cells from Panasonic and, if you take the pack out, the aluminum-bodied Model S weighs over 2,000 lbs. While we wonder about the veracity of the comments, we'll also keep an eye on whether Tesla Motors begins looking for a new production control manager.

    Por Defeito Tesla presentará su crossover conceptual este año, y tendrá un modelo generalista

    Tesla presentó oficialmente el Model S (arriba) en marzo de 2009, pero no saldrá a la venta hasta el segundo trimestre de 2012. Ya se ve que Elon Musk no se adscribe a la filosofía de presentar el concept a 12 meses del lanzamiento del modelo de producción, así que conociendo que su crossover eléctrico llegará en 2013, tampoco debería extrañarse nadie de que el prototipo sea presentado este mismo año.

    El fundador de Tesla ha confirmado que el Model X será público hacia finales de año, lo que (con mucha fe) pondría su posible debut en el Salón del Automóvil de Los Ángeles, a mediados de noviembre. De entrada se avanza algo mucho más atractivo que cualquier modelo en su segmento, aunque ya anticipamos que no será precisamente asequible; para eso, Tesla sigue trabajando en el Bluestar, un modelo "auténticamente generalista" que en EEUU se comercializará por unos 30.000 dólares. ¿Con la ayuda de Toyota? Apostaríamos a que sí, pero su lanzamiento no tendrá lugar hasta dentro de cuatro años, así que espera sentado con nosotros...

    Por Defeito Tesla teams with Umicore to recycle battery packs in Europe

    Press release:
    Tesla launches battery recycling program throughout Europe

    Unique eco-friendly approach recovers important metals and reduces carbon footprint


    Maidenhead, UK – Tesla Motors has launched a comprehensive strategy to recycle its industry-leading battery packs throughout Europe.

    At the end of their long life, Tesla will recycle its battery packs at Umicore's UHT facility in Belgium. The Brussels-based materials technology company will use the expended pack material to produce an alloy that will be further refined into cobalt, nickel and other metals.

    After that, Umicore will transform the cobalt into high grade lithium cobalt oxide, which can be resold to battery manufacturers. One of the few byproducts of their environmentally-friendly approach is a clean inertized slag containing calcium oxides and lithium. The slag goes into the production of special grades concretes.

    Umicore's battery recycling technology allows to save a minimum of 70 percent on CO2 emissions at the recovery and refining of these valuable metals. So it can substantially reduce the carbon footprint for the manufacturing of Lithium-Ion batteries.

    "While we work to help lessen global dependence on petroleum-based transportation and drive down the cost of electric vehicles, we are also taking the lead in developing a closed loop battery recycling system," Tesla's Director of Energy Storage Systems Kurt Kelty wrote in a new blog about the process.

    Tesla has been building and selling highway-capable, fully-certified electric cars for three years, during which time the Silicon Valley-based company has championed recycling and use of non-toxic materials. Tesla customers do not pay extra for recycling of the battery pack, which is expected to last 7-10 years or about 160,000 kilometers under normal use.

    ABOUT TESLA MOTORS

    Tesla's goal is to produce increasingly affordable electric cars to mainstream buyers – relentlessly driving down the cost of EVs. Based in California's Silicon Valley, Tesla has delivered more than 1,500 Roadsters to customers in at least 30 countries in Europe, North America and Asia. Tesla designs, develops, manufactures and sells EVs and EV powertrain components. The Tesla Roadster accelerates faster than most sports cars yet produces no emissions.

    Por Defeito Tesla Model X crossover coming to Frankfurt?

    Up to this point, the only actual vehicle Tesla Motors has offered for sale is the all-electric Roadster. But the Silicon Valley-based automaker has drummed up a ton of interest and money by showing off its next planned product, the Model S sedan. It looks as if that trend will continue, as a report from the fine folks at Car and Driver suggests that the automaker's new crossover, the Model X, will be shown off for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall. This makes some sense, since Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that we'll get to see the Model X before the end of the year. The Los Angeles show later in the fall would be another possibility.

    Assuming this report is accurate, it's worth noting that the CUV's appearance in Frankfurt will mark the first time Tesla has used a major auto show to introduce a new model – both the original Roadster and the Model S sedan were both unveiled in smaller, private events.

    The CUV will be based on the same underpinnings as the Model S sedan, which was designed from the start to allow for future model expansion. C&D speculates the crossover will sport all-wheel drive, though it's not known exactly how such an arrangement will work. It's possible that Tesla will craft a second powertrain unit that will power the front wheels independently of the rears. We'd expect a similar lithium ion battery pack to be used in the CUV as is planned for the sedan.

    Following the unveil of the crossover, development of both a coupe and a larger, likely three-row sport utility vehicle will move forward in full force. There's also been talk of a carbiolet and possibly a minivan or MPV. Of course, all of this assumes that the startup automaker, which has partnered up with both Daimler and Toyota, doesn't run out of money before any of these future vehicles come to market. Here's hoping.

    Tesla Model S
    Tesla lets us peek in on Model S development

    It's not every day that an automaker invites you inside its R&D center. In fact, it's rare for any OEM to allow journalists into a room that hasn't been swept floor-to-ceiling for any hint of what's around the corner. Then again, Tesla isn't exactly your average automaker.

    The electric upstart, with its roots firmly entrenched in the Wild West idealism of Silicon Valley, is in the process of developing and testing its all-new electric sedan – the Tesla Model S – before series production begins next year. So in the Valley's spirit of openness and transparency, Tesla threw open its doors, corralled a few engineers and execs, and let us poke around its Palo Alto powertrain facility to see how development of the Model S is coming along.

    The last time we were offered a glimpse behind the scenes at Tesla, the automaker was still holding court at its... ummm... quaint production facility up the road in Menlo Park. While the Menlo operation is still around (joining battery packs and motors to the Roadster "gliders" coming in from Hethel), the new Palo Alto center makes a convincing case that Tesla is joining the Big Leagues.

    If there was any doubt Tesla isn't spending its partnership funding properly, Tesla's new powertrain plant puts that to rest. The 350,000-square-foot building is a massive, three-story ode to EV engineering, with a horizonless bottom floor producing battery packs and assembling motors, and a second floor littered with monitors, cubicles and Tesla employees plugging away.

    When we arrived, we were quickly ushered into Tesla's main research and development bay, where a dozen Model S prototypes in various stages of completion were parked, stripped or hung from rotary lifts. A handful of workers were poking, prodding and assembling one in the background, and when asked what they were up to, we were told that the crew was comprised of managers from the newly acquired NUMMI plant across the Bay being shown how to assemble Tesla's latest EV. Despite toiling over each nut, bolt and alignment, in the time it took for one exec to explain the rear subframe, the workers managed to mount the front clip (comprised of a boron steel beam, three radiators and assorted structural supports) and battery pack into one hoisted sedan – something that, according to our hosts, will take under a minute when production begins in Fremont in 2012. Now, about that battery pack...

    The flat, black unit houses around 7,000 lithium-ion cells and is mounted directly underneath the Model S. When Peter Rawlinson, Tesla's VP of Engineering, mentioned the minimal amount of time it takes to install the pack, we naturally asked if it was designed to be swappable. At this point, Tesla isn't saying it has plans to offer a swapping service similar to that proposed and executed by companies like Better Place, but the potential is there, and that speaks volumes in-and-of itself.

    Regardless, Tesla claims that the pack will be good for up to 10 years, with three capacities available to Model S buyers: one good for 160 miles, and two others that boost the range to 230 or 300 miles (charging times will vary from a few hours to a working day's worth). Pricing for each comes in at $57,400 for the 160-mile variant, with the 230-mile version commanding around $67,000 and the 300-mile pack model coming in around $77k – all before federal tax credits are deducted.

    Tesla's learned a lot from the 1,500 Roadsters silently motoring around the planet, with owners logging nearly 10 million miles in the last few years. Compared to the packs fitted to the coupe, the Model S' batteries not only boast increased performance, a longer life and higher energy density, but they are less costly to produce than those fitted to Tesla's original EV. And that increase/decrease stands to continue. While there's no Moore's Law-type equation to determine the rate of battery innovation, Tesla CTO JB Straubel figures that advances in both energy storage and density are improving at a rate of around eight percent each year.

    Tesla isn't citing a weight for the battery pack just yet, but Rawlinson likes to point out that not only is the thin grouping of cells mounted incredibly low in the body, it's been designed to be an integral part of the chassis – so much so that Tesla engineers reduced the diameter of the sway bars because the pack provided enough torsional rigidity.

    As for the liquid-cooled motor, Rawlinson likens it to a Swiss watch, with all the components systematically developed and fitted to be as compact as possible – a good thing, considering it's sandwiched between the rear axles. Yes, the Model S is a proper rear-wheel-drive sedan, kicking out around 295 pound-feet of torque and 300 kWh from the combined motor/power control unit (in the pic above, the motor is on the left and the PCU is on the right).

    All told, Tesla is claiming a 0-60 mph run of under six seconds, and when we asked what other products Tesla was benchmarking against the S, the response from Rawlinson was simple: "The best of everything."

    Tesla is unapologetically hyping up the fact that the Model S has been developed (and soon to be built) entirely in-house, with production plans of around 20,000 units each year. But before series production begins, Tesla needs to test, crash, test, torture, test, drive and test its Alpha fleet of vehicles.

    To that end, Tesla is building 20 prototypes at its Palo Alto facility, mainly comprised of the black sedans littered throughout its workshop to test a variety of different systems. One is being used to evaluate the electrical system, another is the dynamics and handling mule, while yet another is undergoing stress testing, logging the equivalent of 250,000 miles in around six months. Two brake testing vehicles are undergoing evaluation in the chilly wilds of Wisconsin and Model S Program Director Jerome Guillen drove one of the prototypes to work the day we arrived. So... comprehensive, then.

    Tesla plans to produce around 100 total testers before production begins, with the Alphas running around for three months, followed by dozens of Beta versions set to be built in Fremont later this year. The orange sedans in the shop are being developed for crash testing, and while Tesla reps will only say that full impact testing is set to begin "very soon," they've already performed a series of low-speed tests and were incredibly pleased with the results.

    But with all this new production capacity, square-footage and warm bodies, how is Tesla going to turn a profit? Straubel admits that there are a lot of moving parts with its project, but is adamant that the Model S will keep Tesla in the black. "We simply can't sell this car at a loss." No kidding, Straubel. We'll let you get back to work...

    Tesla sues BBC over 'Top Gear' review of electric Roadster


    Washington — Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday the electric-vehicle company sued the BBC's "Top Gear" for libel to defend the company's reputation over a "completely phony" depiction of its Roadster.
    The Palo Alto, Calif.-based start-up sued the popular British television program for libel and malicious falsehood last week in the United Kingdom over a December 2008 show that suggested the Tesla Roadster didn't perform well in road tests.
    "The fundamental thing with 'Top Gear' is that the show was about as authentic as a Milli Vanilli concert, but the problem is most viewers don't know that," Musk told The Detroit News in an interview after an appearance here Tuesday at the National Press Club.
    Milli Vanilli was a rock group in the late 1980s and 1990s that had a Grammy for Best New Artist revoked when the lead performers admitted they didn't actually sing.
    Tesla held an initial public offering in June, and the "Top Gear" show was an issue during its road show to sell the offering, particularly in Europe.
    "For European investors, every single one, except one, specifically asked us why our car broke down on 'Top Gear,'" Musk said. "It was (messed) up."
    Musk said "Top Gear" didn't give the Roadster a fair chance.
    "They literally wrote the script at 'Top Gear' before we even gave them the cars," he said.
    Musk said the automaker learned this because a Tesla employee found the script before "Top Gear" tested the Roadster. "The script shows our car breaking down, but we only just gave you the car?" Musk said. "It was just completely phony."
    Andy Wilman, the executive producer of "Top Gear," rejected several claims from Tesla in a blog post, including the suggestion that the show had "condemned the car in advance."
    Wilman acknowledged the show had drafted a script before filming, but said it wasn't unusual.
    "The truth is, 'Top Gear' had already driven the car prior to filming, to enable us to form a view on it in advance," he wrote.
    "Top Gear" works off a "a rough draft of a script so that the director and film crew can get to work right away, knowing what shots they will need to capture," but is modified depending on how well the car performs on the day of filming, Wilman wrote.
    Musk asserted the BBC had apologized for the show.
    "The BBC did apologize. They sort of said, 'Oh we're sorry.' And then they keep running the show over and over again," Musk said.
    Musk said he wants BBC to stop running the show or add a disclaimer that "we made this up."
    The BBC said in a statement to The Detroit News that it "stands by the program and will be vigorously defending this claim."
    Top Gear hasn't apologized on its website for the show, saying its review was based on the vehicle — but less on performance than on other factors.
    "Our primary reasoning behind the verdict had nothing to do with how the Tesla performed; our conclusion was basedmainly on the fact that it costs three times more than the petrol sports car upon which it's based," Wilman wrote. "It takes a long time to recharge, so you can't use it as easily for the carefree motoring journeys that are a prerequisite of sports car driving. You can actually reachthat conclusion without driving the car."
    About 1,500 Roadsters have been sold worldwide.
    In other news, Tesla said its work on the RAV4 EV with Toyota Motor Corp. is on schedule and hasn't been delayed by the Japanese tsunami. Musk said a minor supply disruption with Panasonic lasted about a week, but the company has enough buffer inventory that it didn't affect the development.

    Portanto alegam que o script do top gear afirmava que o carro avariava antes de sequer o conduzirem... Mesmo que isso seja 100% verdade.. o carro avariou, certo? então o que é que isso interessa?

    Podiam ter escrito no script o que lhes apetecer, mas a verdade é que o carro avariou.. por duas vezes..


    E agora andam, o que é tipico, a tentar ganhar a acção juridica fora dos tribunais com populismo e falsas intensões.

    Epa se eles não se queriam dar ao escrutinio publico, nao dessem os carros para o Top gear testar.

    Interessa, porque o carro NÃO avariou, e está a lançar um preconceito INEXISTENTE aos potenciais compradores da marca. Lá porque o Jeremias-bigot não gosta de carros eléctricos, não tem o direito de manchar o nome de uma marca com avarias inventadas!

    Americanos sempre a dar no drama? Eu diria era britânicos, sempre teimosos e com palas.

    Até porque os Teslas rolam e bem...

    Tesla, como ya nos hemos encargado de martillarte, está dando ya los últimos retoques antes del lanzamiento del Model S, su segundo producto comercial tras el Roadster y el primero en ser fabricado en sus instalaciones estadounidenses. Será una berlina deportiva eléctrica con capacidad para hasta siete personas gracias a unos asientos de orientación opuesta al sentido de la marcha, y a diferencia del Roadster original, con un marcado enfoque premium. Pero antes de su comercialización hay comprobar que todo funciona correctamente, y como buena empresa de Silicon Valley, Tesla ha dividido su fase de pruebas en dos etapas: alfa y beta. La primera de ellas ha dado como fruto el coche que tienes sobre estas líneas, dotado de un paragolpes marcadamente agresivo que el del prototipo original, con mayores entradas de aire y una calandra rediseñada. También es nuevo el difusor trasero, ahora de aspecto sólido, así como los retrovisores.

    En teoría, su técnica no ha cambiado, de forma que nos encontraríamos con una autonomía de 480 km, una velocidad punta próxima a los 200 km/h (120 millas por hora para ser exactos, que no son pocas para un vehículo eléctrico) y un 0 a 100 inferior a 6 segundos. Dentro, buena parte de las funciones del automóvil serán reguladas desde un centro multimedia Linux con 3G, soporte para aplicaciones y una gran pantalla táctil.

    ¿Mejor o peor que el Model S original? No sabríamos qué decirte. El primero era visualmente un coche más equilibrado, pero el Alpha tiene más garra y tal vez transmita mejor la esencia deportiva de Tesla. Posiblemente la mejor solución sería poner los nuevos paragolpes como extra y dejar que los clientes decidan... Tienen tiempo, puesto que no saldrá a la venta hasta mediados de 2012.

    U Design: Tesla Model C Concept Study for a Compact Electric Hatch by Dejan Hristov - Carscoop

    Tesla Model C Concept by Dejan Hristov"This is a modern, harmonic, unique design, with a sports image, for a city car equipped with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. This car has a glass top, which covers the metal parts of the construction, offering a futuristic view on the design.
    The side doors are big offering an effortless entry to the back seats. The doors are equipped with innovated mechanism for opening, ideal for conditions with restricted space (the mechanism is shown in one of the pictures). The opening and closing is automatic; actually, the mechanism of the doors would be maneuvered by electric motors.
    The tailgate is connected to an original mechanism. Besides that, it is wide and allows easy use of the trunk.
    The rear bumper is attached for construction and holds the spare wheel. It pulls out like a drawer, something that allows for a trouble-free reach of the spare wheel. The same construction can be used for transporting bikes or any other kinds of belongings.
    Beside the standard design, I also designed a sportier version with a bigger kw-h battery-pack. This variant is wider and features sports bumpers with bigger vents for cooling, 1-inch bigger wheels and a rear spoiler. This version would likely be called the Tesla Model C GT."

    Next-gen Tesla Roadster to be Faster and Have Better Range Than Original

    With the market for all-electric vehicles growing rapidly, Tesla Motors is set to cash in further in the coming years when its Tesla Model S hits European roads later this year before the Tesla Model X SUV is created in production form in 2014-2015.

    However, that won’t be the end of Tesla’s expansion with the company also planning a second-generation Tesla Roadster which will push the envelope of what electric sports cars have to offer.

    Tesla’s boss George Blankenship stated, “If you fast forward beyond that [2015-2016], we go back to the roadster and do things that people aren’t doing and push the envelope. That would be the next-generation roadster.”

    With the EV market growing so exponentially and new technologies being continually discovered and implemented, Blankenship believes that the next-gen Tesla Roadster will dramatically improve upon the original car’s sub-4.0 second sprint to 62mph while also improving on its 200-mile range.

    “The original roadster was a proof-of-concept car,” he said. “We did an electric car with over a 200-mile range and 0-60mph in under four seconds. Back then, no one believed it was possible. And then we did the Model S saloon, with 0-60mph in 4.4sec and a 300-mile range.”

    Tesla supera a Mercedes, Audi e BMW em vendas no primeiro trimestre


    Según los datos de LMC Automotive, en el primer trimestre de 2013 Tesla vendió en Estados Unidos másModel S que cualquier modelo equivalente de gasolina del trío alemán de marcas premium. En los tres primeros meses de 2013, Tesla habría vendido 4.750 unidades del Model S, mientras que Mercedescolocó 3.077 Clase S, BMW vendió 2.338 Serie 7 y Audi tan sólo 1.468 unidades del A8.

    Es cierto que la comparación se centra en un sólo segmento, el de las berlinas de muy alta gama. Además, el Tesla Model S debuta en 70.000 $, mientras que el más barato de los Clase S cuesta lo mismo que un Model S equipado hasta arriba. Por si fuera poco, el Clase S está en su último año de vida de comercial. Aún así no deja de ser revelador que en el segmento en que compite el Model S, Tesla venda más que los especialistas.

    Por supuesto, esto no significa que Tesla venda más coches que las tres marcas citadas. En los tres primeros meses de 2013, Audi vendió un total de 139.310 coches en Estados Unidos, BMW vendió 281.460 unidades y Mercedes-Benz colocó 274.134 coches.

    Que Tesla supere los especialistas del lujo en el único segmento en el que está presente puede verse como un toque de atención a las marcas premium: las necesidades del público están cambiando. Y Tesla responde a una demanda creciente por vehículos de prestigio, con altas prestaciones y ecólogicos.

    Otros serán más críticos argumentando que Tesla todavía debe imponerse fuera de Estados Unidos, especialmente en Asia y Europa para demostrar que tiene futuro como marca y que no es sólo una moda. De momento, Tesla prevé vender este año entre 20.000 y 25.000 unidades.

    Ainda não se sabe se será um Tesla compacto (2016) - rival do Leaf ou se Tesla lançará em 2015 um anti-Série 3 a um preço acessível.
    Tesla confirma um modelo EV mais barato parafor 2016, Musk afirma que custará metade do Model S


    Elon Musk, the visionary entrepreneur behind PayPal, SpaceX and Tesla Motors, has provided some new information while also confirming other details about his automotive venture's plans, during Tesla Motor's annual shareholder meeting on Tuesday.Perhaps the most important bit of news shared by Musk was the confirmation of a smaller battery-powered model, currently known as the Gen III. "It will probably arrive at the end of 2016 I would say - the third generation vehicle, or the vehicle that is in a lot of ways a smaller version of the Model S at about half the price".

    Given that the base price of the Model S is $62,400, including the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit, the Gen III sedan should come in the market priced at around $30,000 to $35,000 with tax credits, or in the high $30k's to low $40k's without.

    The Tesla CEO also talked about the upcoming Model X, which is an all-electric crossover with seating for seven based on the running gear of the Model S.
    "Because the battery is in the floor pan, it should have the lowest center gravity of any SUV and as a result, extremely good handling," Musk said. "So we want to have something that has the handling of a sports car and also looks great, but has more functionality than a minivan. That's what we're aiming for with the Model X We're aiming to have initial cars in customer hands at the end of next year," he added.

    Musk said that the company is also preparing a China specific version of the Model S as well as another version of the car for the rest of Asia, both of which will be introduced this year.

    Continuo a achar que se deveriam manter pelos segmentos mais altos.
    Permite manter os preços altos e margens mais rentáveis, sem ser necessário produzir em grandes volumes, tornando o negócio sustentável.
    Além do mais, não necessitam de fazer tantos compromissos no carro em si, só para atingir um determinado preço de venda ao público.
    O Model S pode se destacar por ser 100% eléctrico, mas, pelo que tenho lido, como automóvel, é mesmo muito bom, sem medos de enfrentar concorrência premium que joga na mesma faixa de preço.

    Agora, 30-35 mil dólares e a contar que o governo mantenha o subsidio de 7500$ para carros eléctricos? Parece-me arriscado...
    E mesmo este ano, onde todos os veículos eléctricos viram o seu preço de aquisição ou leasing baixar um pouco por todo o mundo, as vendas teimam em não despegar dos niveis habituais.

    Eu então é ao contrario, espero que eles entrem nos compactos para porém este segmento a mexer!
