Electric Vehicle News, Reviews and Analysis

Electric vehicles (EVs) have come a long way in a short time. Barely a decade has passed since the ambitious Silicon Valley startup Tesla Motors introduced the world to an electric car capable of traveling more than 300 miles on a single charge. Since then, Elon Musk and Tesla have convinced many dubious onlookers that electric vehicles are not only here to stay, but that they can become the future of transportation.

Other automakers have joined the EV movement at very different rates. The Nissan Leaf, for example, debuted in 2010 and went on to become the best-selling all-electric vehicle in the world for a time. Competition from the BMW i3 followed, as well as the plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt and its all-electric successor the Chevy Bolt EV, but only the Tesla Model 3 has been able to steal the Leaf's crown. Heading into a new decade, electric vehicles are set to go from strength-to-strength, with new models like the Hyundai Kona Electric and Kia Niro EV competing in the entry-level category and the Audi e-Tron, Porsche Taycan, or Jaguar I-PACE vying with Tesla at the top end of the market.

With entire classes of vehicle still lacking an electric version, such as pick-up trucks and affordable SUVs, there's huge potential for expansion and growth in the EV marketplace. For now, Tesla is still blazing the trail, but legacy manufacturers are lining up to electrify their fleets and promising startups like Rivian and Byton are waiting in the wings with exciting new electric vehicles.

The future is bright for EVs and you can keep up to date with all the latest stories right here on Torque News.

It’s always interesting to find new information that’s hidden in plain sight – and Tesla’s Giga Berlin site in Grünheide revealed an interesting issue. When discussing with Torque News editor Armen Hareyan about the ownership of vehicles engaged in leveling the site, I was suddenly reminded of a photo that appeared a fortnight ago. It’s the kind of sign that you can find outside any building site, listing the client and contractors.
Tesla Giga Berlin Drone Rule Changes

There Is an Addition to Drone Rule at Tesla Giga Berlin

Tesla Giga Berlin construction site has a new drone flight regulation. A few days ago I reported that the drone flight ban was lifted at the construction site of the Tesla Giga Berlin factory. The police had told my local friend Jurgen that the drone ban was due to a special police operation at the Giga Berlin site. However, today there is a new drone update and change of regulation and I am going to tell you about that.
