※ 投稿邮箱:418150505@qq.com※ 本文章发布于订阅号:百车全说,订阅号阅读更加方便,欢迎关注。喜马拉雅文稿更新,在12月19日左右。很久没有说过跑车了,最近一段时间聊得要么是家用车,要么是新能源车,是时候该提升一下听友的口味了。说起跑车,大家都会清一色的想到法拉利、兰博基尼这些欧盟品牌,但是一定不能少了英国,提到英国跑车,可能你会想到迈凯伦,但是别忘了,还有一个品牌,那就是路特斯。正好前段时间,路特斯发布了旗下首款SUV产品ELETRE,也是一款纯电车型,在国内目前推出了两个版本,S+车型82.8万元起,R+车型102.8万元起。这车一上市,网上就炸开了锅,说路特斯一个跑车品牌,现在竟然堕落到生产SUV了?还是个纯电?这里面不光有键盘侠,还有很多老的路特斯跑车车主也说道,之前他花60万买了Elise,是一台英国产的纯正路特斯跑车,现在花100万竟然只能买一台武汉造的电动路特斯SUV?也可能有些听友听半天,不知道今天聊的这是什么品牌的什么车型?如果你或者你家孩子玩和平精英,你可以问问他,说不定他都比你了解。因为路特斯跟和平精英合作,付费玩家可以在游戏里买到路特斯ELETRE当做自己的载具。我今天写稿的时候,就把我女儿叫到电脑前,问她认不认识这款车。她脱口而出,这是莲花。所以这期节目我们就来好好聊聊路特斯这个品牌有什么特色?吉利现在到底是什么关系?以及ELETRE有哪些亮点,定价到底算不算贵?路特斯品牌的特色是什么?每个汽车品牌都有自己的特点,比如说到奔驰大家就会想到豪华,不管是上到S级还是下到A级和C级,在同级里奔驰的产品就是设计的很豪华,双联屏的热潮就是从奔驰这里开始的。而说到宝马就会想到运动,即便现在宝马的主销车型都很舒适,比如这一代的3系,但是这依然不能撼动蓝天白云在消费者心中运动的形象,因为它上面的M POWER变得越来越强。尤其是这一代的S58发动机,虽然原厂出来510匹,但是只要刷个一阶就轻松能到600匹左右,再加上四驱系统,就能让M4百公里加速跑到3秒以内,着实很夸张。而说到沃尔沃就会想到安全,连车标都自带安全带,你说它安全不安全?那说到路特斯,估计很多人不知道,它最大的亮点是空气动力学。没错,可能在日常生活中尤其是城市里感受不深,但是一旦到了赛车场上,空气动力学就变得尤为重要。就比如F1赛车,车重才750公斤,但是它却能以一百甚至200公里每小时的速度过弯,靠的是车重吗?当然不是,大部分靠的还是空气动力学,利用各种空气学套件,比如前铲、尾翼、侧翼、扩散器等,通过空气的下压力来让车辆紧贴地面。所以很多人觉得车子越重跑起来就越稳,是个错误的想法。莲花汽车创始人科林·查普曼说过,增加动力让你在直道更快,而减轻重量可以让你在任何地方更快。路特斯对空气动力学的贡献是很大的。比如在1957年问世的路特斯Elilte,车身的风阻系数只有0.29,别说当时了,这个数据放到现在也依然很厉害,同时外观造型也很时尚新颖,并没有为了风阻系数刻意妥协。(1957年的Elite)更关键的是,路特斯那时候还是一个小厂,1952年才成立,那时候没有风洞实验室,因此这台车的设计师只依靠丰富的飞机设计经验就设计出了这么一款车,不得不佩服人家的功力深厚。并且,它的最大特点是玻璃纤维硬壳式车身,这也是第一辆应用复合材料车身和底盘的汽车。到了1962年的F1大奖赛上,路特斯推出了创新性的TYPE 25车型,它就是首款摒弃了传统的管状空间框架底盘,采用硬壳结构的单体承载式车身的F1赛车,说通俗点就是一体式车身结构。这样的结构带来的最大好处就是减少了车体空间,也减轻了车身重量,同时还提升了整车的刚性和强度。(TYPE 52)现在的F1赛车平均体重在750公斤左右,而路特斯TYPE 25只有恐怖的451公斤,再加上它200马力的最大输出,推重比达到了443.5马力/吨。此外,还有轰动一时的查普曼悬架。查普曼就是路特斯的创始人,在当时,他脑洞大开地用驱动轴充当了悬架控制臂,从而减少了悬挂的零件个数和重量,并应用于Lotus Type 12和Type 14的后悬挂。不久后又被ELAN上的升级版所取代。(查普曼悬架)在1968年,路特斯还破天荒的在F1赛场上首次应用了定风尾翼的设计,就是为了抵抗赛车高速行驶下产生的升力。当然,灵感也是来源于飞机。到了1970年的F1西班牙大奖赛,路特斯推出的Type 72在车头处还采用了创新的楔形设计。(TYPE 72)所以有了定风尾翼和楔形车头的加持,路特斯TYPE 72在五年里拿了两届车手总冠军、三届车队总冠军和20场分站赛冠军。而且从外形上看,它应该算得上是近代F1造型的鼻祖,也是人类历史上最伟大的F1赛车之一。真要论资排辈,现在所有车上装的尾翼的起源都来自路特斯,当然还有后扩散器。所以路特斯绝对是妥妥的空气动力学之王,没有之一。(TYPE 72)为什么吉利要收购路特斯?意义在哪里?不过目前来看,路特斯的辉煌只能留在过去了。因为自从1982年,54岁的路特斯创始人查普曼因心脏病去世后,路特斯的辉煌便一去不复返,此时公司的财务已是满目疮痍。后来又经过十几年的残喘,1996年终于被宝腾汽车收购。(柯林·查普曼)可能很多人到现在都没听过宝腾汽车是什么。宝腾汽车诞生于1983年,是马来西亚前总理马哈蒂尔一手创立的国民汽车品牌。说到这里,肯定也要提一下当时的黑历史青年莲花。不少80后当时在买车时应该都听过青年莲花这个品牌,没错,就是宝腾汽车在收购了路特斯之后,把Lotus的使用权卖给了中国品牌青年汽车,才有了青年莲花。但为什么宝腾汽车要好端端的把路特斯的使用权卖给国内的品牌呢?目的只有一个,那就是卖车。相信很多冲着莲花名号的年轻人跑到青年莲花的4S店后,估计瞬间会被泼一盆冷水。你以为青年莲花卖得都是纯正的路特斯跑车,极致的操控再加不可妥协的轻量化,结果看到的却是和丰田卡罗拉一样的普通A级家用轿车,开起来还没飞度运动,估计10个人有9个都要直呼,好一个挂羊头卖狗肉。也是从那时起,让国内的消费者对于路特斯有了很大的误解,以为青年莲花就是路特斯莲花,这个品牌可以说就是毁在了宝腾手里。宝腾公司才不管莲花品牌的死活,在咱们国内卖的青年莲花L3的原型车就是宝腾Gen-2。所以很快,青年莲花就因为销量不行倒闭了。后来在2017年6月,吉利收购了路特斯。不过准确来说,是吉利收购了宝腾汽车49.9%的股份,顺势把宝腾汽车掌控路特斯的51%股份收入囊中。之所以吉利会这么做,有两点好处。一是宝腾汽车是马来西亚的国民品牌,所以可以借助宝腾品牌在马来西亚,甚至整个东南亚的影响力扩大吉利海外的市场。毕竟在东南亚,性价比高的车是很吃香的。二是因为路特斯不管是车身轻量化技术、底盘调教技术、赛车运动以及文化都是世界一流的,虽然现在不行了,但是之前好歹也是和法拉利、保时捷一起并称为世界三大跑车制造商,瘦死的骆驼也比马大,现在不少国家的车迷依然还深爱着路特斯。所以吉利既可以借助路特斯的技术来提升自己品牌的运动性,因为在吉利的产品布局中,好像就差一个极为运动的跑车品牌了。还可以借助路特斯的影响把自己推向欧美等市场,再一次扩大自己的市场份额。所以这对于吉利来说意义重大,也可以说这一步棋走的一举两得。路特斯ELETRE定价到底贵不贵?路特斯就这样,先是被宝腾收购,再被吉利打包带走。不过最近这几年,有了吉利的支持后,万年不换代的路特斯竟然一口气停产了之前所有的产品,并且推出了全新的产品系列。其中就包括前段时间发布的一款全新纯电车型,也是路特斯的首款SUV车型ELETRE。不过它82.8-102.8万的定价也是让网友直呼贵。不过它到底贵不贵呢?有网友调侃,这车就是极氪王中王Plus Pro Max S Ultra British Edition版本,源自于吉利的浩瀚架构,造型还特别像东风风行T5 EVO,凭什么卖那么贵?当然也有人觉得:运动SUV造型、电吸门、后轮转向、无框电吸车门、空气悬挂、R+版零百加速2.95秒、极速260公里、电池112度、800伏充电平台、前后多连杆、双腔空气悬挂、48v主动防倾杆、CDC连续可调减震器、四条P0 Corsa轮胎、23个扬声器的KEF音响、双8155芯片、四颗激光雷达(顶部还能自动隐藏)等等,所有的一切他都非常满意,他甚至愿意再花钱选装四座,选装10活塞卡钳+陶瓷碳纤维的刹车系统。其实,Eletre这款车长度超过5米1,宽度超2米,轴距超3米,妥妥的中大型SUV了。而从外形和设计上来看,在这一级别的SUV里绝对算得上惊艳,巨大的多边形前保险杠非常夸张,引擎盖上还有两个巨大的通风口。车尾造型也是很有肌肉感,不管是宽大的分体式顶翼还是可升降的尾翼都给你配全了,要知道比它贵好几倍的兰博基尼URUS和法拉利PUROSANGUE可没有电动尾翼。所以从外观上来看,ELETRE没有给空气动力学出身的路特斯丢脸。不过总感觉它和兰博基尼URUS、法拉利PUROSANGUE有点神似。包括内饰上,设计地也很战斗。所以如果你拿路特斯ELETRE去对比兰博基尼URUS和法拉利PUROSANGUE,你会觉得ELETRE就是白菜价。差不多的外观,差不多的内饰,差两倍的价格,不管它是电动还是燃油,买的人玩的就是它的设计和开在街上独一无二的新鲜感。其他人之前至少花300万才能装的x,我现在只要花100万就够了。再加上路特斯的品牌也有车迷是认可的,只要在这部分车迷中找出那些能够掏出将近100万的即可。至于这台车值不值100万,如果你不是车迷,肯定是觉得不值的,只有喜欢并且欣赏这个品牌的人才会觉得值。他们实际上就是希望在自己有生之年,车库里拥有过一台莲花,至于是油,是电,还是混动,其实无所谓。能买得起这款车的用户家里至少两台以上备用车,续航,充电,空间,保值率这些都不是影响决策的关键因素,感觉才是。我看了很多网友的评论,大部分网友,还是拿普通家用电动车的眼光去看它,那必然会觉得它价格真的很贵。因为,把它的每一项单独拎出来,都没有很惊艳。好像也只有100多万的R+版本的数据能拿得出手,双电机四驱,最大马力918匹,最大扭矩985牛米,百公里加速2.95秒。有人肯定要说这动力还不好吗?其实网友调侃的不是100多万这款,而是 80多万的S+版本,才 612匹,710牛米,零百加速4.5秒。肯定有人会说,现在30多万的电动车,都可以做到零百加速3秒多了呢。ELETRE R+售价102.8万,别忘了刚刚在上海进博会上亮相的特斯拉MODEL S/X PLAID,不是我吹,它俩可是三电机四驱,最大马力1020匹,百公里加速2.1秒。更夸张的是它的后段加速也异常的凶猛,400米加速只要9.3秒。国外网友拿MODEL S PLAID和布加迪跑过,布加迪依然甘拜下风,而且特斯拉这两台车,它的最高车速能到322KM/H。就是不知道引入国内,消费者敢不敢买,快是挺快,刹不刹得住呢?如果莲花的创始人还在世的话,看到特斯拉发展到今天,他可能会后悔当初把Elise拿给特斯拉,改造成了特斯拉第一款电动车Roadster.但现实就是这样,虽然ELETRE的马力很大,但是整备质量却有3吨,所以真正测起来,R+的百公里应该在3秒出头。性能上完全比不过105.999万的特斯拉MODEL S PLAID。而且,ELETRE看似搭载了112度的宁德时代三元锂电池,CLTC官方续航为S+ 650公里、R+560公里,但是ELETRE可是重3吨,所以后期真正跑起来,续航达成率到底有多少也未知。因此总结来说,路特斯ELETRE又是一款为土豪打造的大玩具,注定它是针对一小部分人群的。但是对于那一部分人群来说,他们又觉得ELETRE又很划算,和兰博基尼URUS、法拉利PUROSANGUE一样有设计感,并且价格有很合适,所以分分钟把车提。至于其他的问题,只要在车库或者院子里装一个充电桩就行了。所以,这台车的广告语,应该是Z世代富二代的第一辆电动车。可以添加微信46415254加入我们的社群音频图文更新在订阅号:

Tesla is the most exciting car company in a generation . . . but can it live up to the hype? Tesla Motors and CEO Elon Musk have become household names, shaking up the staid auto industry by creating a set of innovative electric vehicles that have wowed the marketplace and defied conventional wisdom. The company's market valuation now rivals that of long-established automakers, and, to many industry observers, Tesla is defining the future of the industry. But behind the hype, Tesla has some serious deficiencies that raise questions about its sky-high valuation, and even its ultimate survival. Tesla's commitment to innovation has led it to reject the careful, zero-defects approach of other car manufacturers, even as it struggles to mass-produce cars reliably, and with minimal defects. While most car manufacturers struggle with the razor-thin margins of mid-priced sedans, Tesla's strategy requires that the Model 3 finally bring it to profitability, even as the high-priced Roadster and Model S both lost money. And Tesla's approach of continually focusing on the future, even as commitments and deadlines are repeatedly missed, may ultimately test the patience of all but its most devoted fans. In Ludicrous, journalist and auto industry analyst Edward Niedermeyer lays bare the disconnect between the popular perception of Tesla and the day-to-day realities of the company—and the cars it produces. Blending original reporting and never-before-published insider accounts with savvy industry analysis, Niedermeyer tells the story of Tesla as it's never been told before—with clear eyes, objectivity and insight.

But behind the hype, Tesla has some serious deficiencies that raise questions about its sky-high valuation, and even its ultimate survival. Tesla's commitment to innovation has led it to reject the careful, zero-defects approach of other car manufacturers, even as it struggles to mass-produce cars reliably, and with minimal defects. While most car manufacturers struggle with the razor-thin margins of mid-priced sedans, Tesla's strategy requires that the Model 3 finally bring it to profitability, even as the high-priced Roadster and Model S both lost money. And Tesla's approach of continually focusing on the future, even as commitments and deadlines are repeatedly missed, may ultimately test the patience of all but its most devoted fans. In Ludicrous, journalist and auto industry analyst Edward Niedermeyer lays bare the disconnect between the popular perception of Tesla and the day-to-day realities of the company—and the cars it produces. Blending original reporting and never-before-published insider accounts with savvy industry analysis, Niedermeyer tells the story of Tesla as it's never been told before—with clear eyes, objectivity and insight.

Organizational transparency is one of many buzzwords in the business world, but it can be a game changer for any company that adopts it. Executive leaders shouldn't be afraid of being transparent with employees because it can lead to greater motivation, more trust, and improved productivity.However, it can be a struggle to find the sweet spot between sharing and oversharing. And finance leaders can help bridge the gap and make a strategic impact by helping executive and department leaders discover their common language around the numbers and people that make the company's growth narrative come to life. In this episode of The Role Forward podcast, our host Joe Michalowski welcomes Matt Wolf, the CFO of ChartHop.

Mercedes 'Alas de gaviota': Daimler Benz ha dejado de existir

El Garaje Hermético de Máximo Sant

En 1945 la directiva de Mercedes-Benz emitía un comunicado lacónico: “Daimler Benz ha dejado de existir”. Tal era el desastre tras la guerra. Sólo 7 años después Mercedes vence en Le Mans y en 1954 nace el Mercedes 300 SL “Gullwing”… Pocos coches, quizás ninguno, son tan míticos como el Mercedes 300 SL, más conocido por “Gullwing”, para los hispanos parlantes, “alas de gaviota”. Este coche, considerado por muchos el primer superdeportivo, supuso el renacimiento de la marca cuyas fabricas estaban en completa ruina, tras la guerra y los permanentes bombardeos de los aliados sobre las fábricas nazis. Mercedes y el nazismo. Hay una leyenda negra que planea sobre muchas marcas alemanas incluida Mercedes: Su colaboracionismo con los nazis y el uso de esclavos, muchos de ellos judíos, en sus fábricas. Audi ha reconocido, de forma valiente, muy valiente, que Richard Brunt, considerado el fundador de Auto Union, era afiliado al partido Nazi. Aunque para mí, más escandaloso es la relación con los nazis de la familia Quandt, dueños en su momento de BMW y accionistas mayoritarios en la actualidad.. Pero Mercedes era una referencia en capacidad de producción y tecnología y, por tanto, estaba en el centro de la diana de los nazis. Y lo pagaron muy caro, pues los bombardeos aliados devastaron las fábricas de las marcas destruyendo la mayoría de ellas casi en un 85 por ciento. De tener 20.000 empleados pasó a tener poco más de 1.000. No había materias primas, las infraestructuras de transporte habían desaparecido, en la mayor parte de Alemania el teléfono no funcionaba y no había suministros de agua potable y electricidad. Por eso la junta directiva lanzó ese escueto comunicado: “Daimler Benz ha dejado de existir”. El milagro alemán. Pero pasados esos momentos tan duros, los directivos de Mercedes, todos los empleados y todos los alemanes se pusieron manos a la obra para salir de esa situación. Y ya en 1946, Mercedes reanuda la fabricación en unas condiciones complicadísima, pero consiguen fabricar casi 600 unidades del Mercedes 170V anterior a la guerra. Y en 1951, solo seis años después de dar por “muerta” a la marca, la directiva de Mercedes decide tres cosas: Hay que volver a hacer coches de lujo, hay que volver a hacer coches deportivos y hay que volver a las carreras y a la F1. ¿Por qué “alas de gaviota”? Para poder tener el coche lo antes posible decidieron utilizar lo que ya tenían: El pesado motor 6 cilindros de la serie 300 junto con su cambio, diferencial y suspensiones. E inspirarse en el Jaguar XK 120, que a su vez era un BMW tomado como “botín de guerra”. La fórmula era usar una mecánica mas o menos “de calle” pero con un ligero y rígido chasis tubular y una carrocería aligerada. Para que el chasis fuese rígido, los laterales eran relativamente altos que impedía poner unas puertas “como Dios manda”. Los pilotos entraban y salían prácticamente por la venta y una pequeña abertura, gracias a que el volante era desmontable. Los ingenieros propusieron una idea: Ampliar el tamaño de las puertas y que se articulasen arriba: Acababa de nacer el “alas de gaviota”. Motor “tumbado”. Esas puertas son el rasgo distintivo del 300 SL que se ve. Pero hay otro que no se ve: El motor tumbado. Como os decía, Mercedes partió de un motor que ya tenía, el del 300, pero era un motor grande, no muy potente y pesado. Consiguieron aligerarlo y hacerlo mucho más potente, pero no hacerlo más pequeño: Con ese motor era imposible hacer un coche con el morro bajo y afiliado. O no. La imaginación al poder: Tumbaron el motor 50 grados hacia la izquierda y pusieron un cárter seco, con lo cual la altura bajo mucho y consiguieron un morro muy bajo y afilado. 12 de marzo de 1952. Casi por sorpresa Mercedes presenta a la prensa el 300 SL de competición. Era una noticia doble, por un lado, la presentación de un pura-sangre de carreras, por otra la confirmación de que Mercedes volvía a las carreras con su SL, para algunos iniciales de Sport Leicht o deportivo ligero, aunque en otros documentos se dice que es Super Leicth o súper ligero… lo mismo me da que me da lo mismo. La denominación existe incluso hoy día. Pocas semanas después comienzan las participaciones de los 300 SL en competición y llegan los éxitos. Su estreno fue a lo grande, en la Mille Miglia, territorio casi exclusivo de las marcas italianas. En su primera participación en competición el 300 SL fue segundo… pero ese fue el peor resultado del año, todas las demás carreras las ganaron. Incluidas las 24 horas de Le Mans, donde hicieron doblete. Max Hoffman y el 190 SL. Los éxitos en competición y su imagen, incluidas sus particulares puertas hicieron que, en muchos lugares del Mundo, pero sobre todo en Norteamérica, muchos clientes se interesasen por la posibilidad de comprar un SL “de calle”. Max Hoffman, tenía claro que un coche así tendría en éxito asegurado en los USA. Pero el comité de dirección no lo veía claro. Y diseñaron un coche digamos que “inspirado” en el 300 SL, pero más modesto y sencillo: El 190 SL, descapotable y sin “alas de gaviota”. Pero el éxito del 190 SL lejos de disuadir a la fábrica de no hacer un 300 SL de calle… consigue justo lo contrario. Y el 6 de febrero de 1954 se presenta en el Salón de Nueva York el precioso Mercedes 300 SL “Alas de gaviota”, mucho más bonito, en mi opinión, que el coche de carreras. ¿”Gullwing” o “Widowmaker”? Si no sabéis inglés, os lo traduzco: ¿Alas de gaviota o “hacedor” de viudas? Porque el 300 SL era un coche extraordinario… y extraordinariamente difícil de conducir. Su potente motor, su chasis y sobre todo su eje trasero hacían de este 300 SL un coche solo apto para expertos. Curiosamente el Roadster mejoró mucho en este sentido y, para mí, es mejor coche… pero esa es otra historia que contaremos en otra ocasión. Porque el verdaderamente mítico es el SL. Al final si descontamos prototipos y coches de competición apenas se fabricaron 1.500 unidades en 3 años, debido a las opciones de equipamiento y a las mejoras introducidas de forma continuada, se puede decir que todos diferentes entre ellos… y todos ellos diferentes a cualquier otro coche.

Souvenez-vous, il y a plus de quatre ans, le 6 février 2018 décollait la fusée Falcon Heavy de SpaceX avec à son bord un Tesla Roadster, la toute première voiture vendue de la marque d'Elon Musk, conduite par le célèbre mannequin Starman. À la sortie de cet épisode, cela fait 1646 jours que le véhicule flotte dans le vide spatial. Mais à quoi ressemble-t-il ? Les réponses du Dr. Anthony Waas, professeur et directeur du programme d'ingénierie aérospatiale à l'Université du Michigan dans cet épisode. Concrètement, je cite le Dr. Waas, « il y a quatre principaux dangers dans l'espace […] la température, les effets de la gravité, le rayonnement, la pression, auxquels on peut également ajouter les vents solaires […] Tous ces paramètres auront un effet sur les matériaux de la voiture de même que la façon dont elle a été construite […] Mais le plus gros facteur reste le cycle thermique […] Vous obtenez d'énormes variations de température dans l'espace […] ce qui fait que les pièces de la voiture se dilatent et se contractent beaucoup plus qu'elles ne le feraient sur terre » fin de citation. Dans le détail, le Roadster possède un châssis de Lotus Elise en aluminium et en fibre de carbone. Cependant, il existe différentes fibres de carbone, donc difficile de prédire comment cette dernière a évolué sans savoir exactement de laquelle il s'agit. Pour ce qui est de la peinture, le Dr. Waas explique je cite qu'elle a « dû sauter et qu'elle devrait même probablement flotter autour de la Tesla » fin de citation. Idem pour les pneus et le cuir des sièges qui ont dû eux aussi se désagréger autour du véhicule. Quant à Starman, il est équipé d'une combinaison spatiale. Cette dernière est résistante, même si elle ne devrait plus tenir très longtemps face aux rayonnements. S'il est impossible de savoir si la Tesla a été percutée par un objet, Anthony Waas explique que le plus gros risque sont les météorites, qui pourraient réellement endommager la voiture, voir carrément la pulvériser. Quoiqu'il en soit, elle est sûrement méconnaissable, distordue, flétrie et entourée de centaines de débris flottants. Si vous voulez suivre les aventures du Roadster en temps réel, rendez-vous sur le site whereisroadster.com. Le jour de la sortie de cet épisode, la voiture se trouvait à plus de 292 720 000 kilomètres de la Terre, se déplaçant à près de 8000 km/h. À noter toutefois que le véhicule entamait une sorte de retour à la maison en se rapprochant de la planète bleue grâce à l'effet de l'attraction terrestre. En effet la voiture n'a pas encore quitté l'orbite de la Terre et devrait repasser très près de nous rapidement. Dès qu'elle sera suffisamment proche de nous, peut-être serait-il judicieux de la rapatrier sur la terre ferme comme le souhaiterait le Dr. Waas. Je cite « elle pourrait être une ressource précieuse pour comprendre comment tous ces matériaux résistent aux conditions dans l'espace » fin de citation.

Reporte original de consumer report en inglés para leer el artículo completo pase por: Is Now the Right Time to Buy a Car? - Consumer Reports Para cuando el coronavirus estaba arrasando la nación, Ali Jian, de 42 años, consultor en el norte de Virginia, ya sabía que quería reemplazar su Subaru Forester 2014 con algo más grande para su familia en crecimiento. Se decidió por una minivan nueva, pero retrasó la compra porque los distribuidores no cedían mucho en el precio. Pero la pandemia obligó a muchos concesionarios a cerrar en marzo y abril, y las ventas de automóviles se desplomaron. El exceso de inventario debido a la desaceleración de las ventas condujo a ofertas e incentivos, que incluyen financiamiento al 0 por ciento, pagos diferidos y grandes descuentos. Elegirlo, asegurarlo, conducirlo Obtenga todo lo que necesita saber cuando se trata de su vehículo. Jian decidió que la primavera pasada era el momento de comprar. Se centró en un Honda Odyssey 2020 que encontró a través del servicio de compra de automóviles de Costco, que le dio acceso a una red nacional de más de 3000 concesionarios. Costco ofreció un precio garantizado que estaba más de $6,000 por debajo del precio minorista sugerido por el fabricante (MSRP) y lo conectó con un concesionario local que tenía el vehículo en existencia y una opción de compra en casa. El concesionario se ofreció a llevar el automóvil a Jian para una prueba de manejo, así como otros modelos para comparar. En cambio, decidió pasar por el concesionario para probar la Odyssey solo y también para ver otros colores. El personal de ventas, que había desinfectado el automóvil y usaba máscaras y guantes, se mantuvo 6 pies de distancia de él. Después de que Jian confirmara la compra, los representantes del concesionario, con máscaras y guantes, entregaron la minivan en su casa con los documentos finales que necesitaba firmar.

A principios de este año, cuando el tráfico peatonal disminuyó, los concesionarios de automóviles se vieron obligados casi de la noche a la mañana a cambiar la forma en que venden los automóviles. Las opciones "sin contacto" para comprar en casa ya eran una parte pequeña pero creciente del mercado, pero la pandemia aumentó significativamente la cantidad de distribuidores participantes. Michelle Denogean, directora de marketing de Roadster, una empresa que se especializa en ayudar a los concesionarios a configurar la infraestructura para las ventas en línea, dice que estas transacciones solían representar entre el 5 y el 10 por ciento de las ventas de automóviles. A mediados de mayo, eso había aumentado a alrededor del 27 por ciento. “La pandemia nos arrojó cinco años hacia el futuro en unos cinco días”, dice ella. Dependiendo de dónde vivan, muchos posibles compradores ahora pueden organizar todos los aspectos de la compra de un automóvil nuevo o usado desde su sofá, incluida la obtención de financiamiento y la organización de una prueba de manejo. Las reglas específicas varían de un estado a otro, pero una venta en línea típica implica varios pasos que se describen a continuación. CR recomienda investigar mucho sobre modelos y concesionarios de antemano. Elige un coche. Si tiene un modelo en mente, probablemente pueda construir un vehículo virtualmente mezclando y combinando opciones en una aplicación de "configurador" en el sitio web de un fabricante de automóviles.

In Wealth Principle #12, Gualter talks about the importance of alleviating a frustration experienced by a large group of people who are willing to pay enough to make it worth their effort. Simply put, there must be a large enough market willing to pay the right price for your product/service. To master this Wealth principle #12, you must overcome this challenge: How do I help people who have the most money, when they seem to have help, and how can I help people who have the least amount of money, when they seem to need the most amount of help. There is a balance and the key is to focus on alleviating the frustrations they have, that is where new money is made. For example, Elon Musk didn't serve the poor initially. He started with the Roadster which was a high-end expensive vehicle sold for over $250K.Then he shifted to a less but still expensive Model that the upper and middle class can afford, at around $30K. Eventually, he will get to a price that is more accessible. ALLEVIATING THE FRUSTRATION FOR THE RICH/ULTRA-RICH IS THE PLACE TO START! But what do they want? What challenges are they facing? Real Estate is the easiest way to make real money. The problem is that every real estate owner has too much house and not enough cash. Over 50 Million Baby Boomers now have a house they don't need anymore and would much rather cash. Can you solve this problem? Can you alleviate the pain of a client who is torn between money & letting go of something with so much history? There is a GAP in the market where buyers are not in line with the sellers. You can help them solve that problem. Let's Do An Exercise 1. What is stopping you from making a million dollars this year/month? (Don't overthink, the answer that comes first is usually the answer to focus on) 2. What might be the solution for making a million dollars this year/month? 3. What if someone has this challenge and would be willing to pay you to solve it for them? (Solving for them would ultimately end up with you solving for yourself as well.) If you can be fascinated with solving these problems for people, the money will flow. Eg: Gualter has a passion for Multi-Family Homes despite the challenges it comes with. Other investors are reluctant to take on Multi-Family Homes. What are Multi-Family Homes? Multi-Family homes are any residential property that contains more than one housing unit, such as a duplex or an apartment complex. 4. Go out this week and find people with problems. Look at the people in your life/your world that have problems they're willing to pay you for the solution. The richer the person, the more room they'll make for other people. Start serving the rich and work your way to helping individuals less fortunate. Stay with the Alchemist Nation team, stay focused, stay motivated, be passionate and you will end up solving a problem for a millionaire. Remember We won't stop working with you until you get rich!

Show #1434 Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily, you trusted source of EV information. It's Wednesday 13th April, it's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. REPORT: MADE-IN-TEXAS TESLA MODEL Y STARTS AT $59,990 - According to Drive Tesla Canada, new reports - based on Reddit posts and internal email sent to Tesla employees a week ago - reveal that Tesla will offer the first MIT cars at a price of $59,990 (USD), which would be some $3,000 less than the current price of the Model Y Long Range AWD. As we understand, it was also the price for those employees. - It's good news that the price is lower, but let's not forget that the new MIT version has also a slightly lower EPA range - 279 miles (449 km) vs 330 miles (531 km), assuming the same 19" wheels. Also, the acceleration is a bit slower - 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds instead of 4.8 seconds. - Some of the numbers of the new Model Y were reportedly noted in the Tesla's website code In the comments: “Just looking at a couple factors, 85% of the range for 95% of the price doesn't seem like a good deal.” “The ID.4 has 280 miles of range for almost 1/2 the price.” with tax credit. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/579535/report-mit-tesla-modely-59990-price/ TESLA WILL RELEASE A CHEAPER MODEL Y WITH BIGGER BATTERIES SOON - This Model Y also includes a few features not seen on any previous trim level, such as a magnetic center armrest and a parcel shelf. Tesla reportedly delivered a handful of these EVs to workers at its "Giga Rodeo" event in Texas last week. - The 4680 cells are twice as large as Tesla's existing units, but they have five times the capacity. That lets Tesla either extend the range of its vehicles or use fewer batteries to maintain the same range, potentially shrinking costs. In the new Model Y version, they're implemented in a structural battery pack that should reduce complexity and weight, further improving efficiency. Original Source : https://www.engadget.com/tesla-model-y-standard-range-awd-new-battery-152038143.html TESLA CHANGES OFF-PEAK HOURS AT SUPERCHARGERS IN CALIFORNIA TO ENCOURAGE OWNERS TO CHARGE LATER - Tesla has announced that it is changing the timeframe of its off-peak hours at Superchargers in California to encourage owners to charge their cars later. - It was only a few years ago that Tesla owners didn't have to pay anything to stop and charge at a Supercharger station. In the early days of Tesla and electric vehicles, it made sense in order to create a seamless experience and encourage ease of travel as many were still on the fence about electric vehicles. - This week, Tesla announced an important change to its off-peak hours in California, its biggest market: - Starting April 12, 2022, off-peak hours will change at California Supercharger locations. Charge for less at select Superchargers before 11 AM and after 9 PM. Tap the Supercharger map pin in your in-car touchscreen to view specific rates and eligible sites. Navigate to your destination using Trip Planner and your battery will automatically precondition before you arrive. - Rates are different depending on the station, but they can often charge around $0.48 per kWh during peak hours versus $0.24 during off-peak hours. Original Source : https://electrek.co/2022/04/13/tesla-changes-off-peak-hours-superchargers-california-encourage-owners-charge-later/ TESLA ROADSTER RESERVATIONS REOPEN AHEAD OF 2023 PRODUCTION - Reservations for the next-generation Tesla Roadster have reopened after Elon Musk announced that the company would start production in 2023. - Anyone interested in a next-gen Tesla Roadster can reserve one on the company's official website. Tesla requires a $5,000 credit card payment for the Roadster due on the spot and a $45,000 wire transfer ten days after the initial order. The $5,000 credit card payment is fully refundable. Tesla does not state whether the $45,000 wire transfer is refundable, but reservations will not be final until the wire transfer is officially received. - The next-generation Tesla Roadster debuted in November 2017 Original Source : https://www.teslarati.com/2023-tesla-roadster-reservations-reopen/ FIRST DRIVE REVIEW: 2023 TOYOTA BZ4X EV IS SET AS THE SIDESHOW BUT UPSTAGES HYBRID HEADLINERS - it surprised us to hear that Toyota only plans to deliver about 7,000 BZ4Xs through the end of 2022 in the U.S., with an emphasis on California ZEV states at first but no guarantee the pace will accelerate. While Ford looks at 200,000 Mach-Es for 2023 split between the U.S. and Europe, and VW eyes 100,000 ID.4s in the U.S. in the next year or two? Record-scratch moment. - Toyota has owned California in hybrid sales, and it's hard to imagine it's not looking at the 60,394 Tesla Model Y SUVs registered in the Golden State alone in 2021 and seeing that it could catch up. - To put it in context a bit, that's a slower U.S. sales pace than the plug-in hybrid RAV4 Prime. - Both of the plug-ins are eligible for the full $7,500 EV tax credit amount for just a few more months. And for the time being, they both upstage those models without charge ports. Sorry, Toyota. Original Source : https://www.greencarreports.com/news/1135571_first-drive-review-2023-toyota-bz4x-ev-is-positioned-as-the-sideshow-but-upstages-hybrid-headliners 2023 TOYOTA BZ4X FIRST DRIVE REVIEW | TOYOTA'S FIRST REAL EV - Last summer, a whopping 40% of would-be electric vehicle buyers said they had heard of Toyota's EV. Of that, 21% said they considered buying it. Funny thing was, the 2023 Toyota bZ4X wouldn't be revealed for months, and we're just reviewing it now. In other words, all those people were keen on a car that didn't exist … which is more than those who had heard of the Chevy Bolt and Nissan Leaf, cars that actually existed for years. - there is very little revolutionary about Toyota's first from-scratch EV. You won't see any bladder-busting range numbers, wait-saving charge times or neck-snapping 0-60 sprints. This sucker is aimed straight at the average new car buyer rather than EV enthusiasts. You know, like the people who thought it was already on sale. - Well, the front-wheel-drive bX4Z actually has a different battery pack than the all-wheel-drive twins. Their capacities are similar at 71.4 kWh for FWD and 72.8 kWh for AWD, but they're in fact different packs produced by different suppliers. Why? The answer is demand, as in Toyota couldn't get enough of a single battery to supply all 13,000 or so Toyabaru EVs it intends to build for 2023. Original Source : https://www.autoblog.com/2022/04/12/2023-toyota-bz4x-first-drive/ SHORT SUPPLY MEANS A RIVIAN TRUCK NOW COSTS FERRARI MONEY Original Source : https://www.motorbiscuit.com/short-supply-means-a-rivian-truck-now-costs-ferrari-money/ TRUCK COMPANIES' ELECTRIC ENTHUSIASM DOESN'T EXTEND TO POLICY - Some of the world's largest truck engine manufacturers say they're all-in on electric vehicles. So why is their main trade group still lobbying against them? - Volvo said it would try to sell 50 percent of its heavy-duty trucks as EVs by 2030, and the company is trumpeting new models and sales figures. Daimler is touting investments in truck charging infrastructure along the West Coast and a million miles driven in its electric Freightliners. Navistar is making the case that its electric school buses can help slash greenhouse gases. - Yet the trade group they all belong to, the Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association, is arguing that federal and state rules intended to boost numbers of zero-emission trucks are too onerous. - EMA's president, Jed Mandel, said the demand isn't necessarily there. “Their customers haven't bought them yet, and there's no guarantee they will,” he said of Volvo and Daimler's plans. Mandel also argued that EPA's proposal creates more regulatory uncertainty because the agency had already settled on greenhouse gas standards through model year 2027 under the Obama administration, which he said are already “very challenging.” - Only about 6,000 of the roughly 4.5 million medium- and heavy-duty trucks on U.S. roads last year were battery-powered, according to ACT Research, a firm that does analysis and forecasting for the commercial vehicle industry. Most of them were buses, which typically make shorter trips than trucks.
