Tesla has begun mass production of lithium-ion battery cells in its Gigafactory, which once at full capacity is expected to produce almost as many battery cells as the rest of the world combined.
As reported in PACE last month, Tesla Motors intends to release a fully autonomous Model X with eight cameras, 12 enhanced ultrasonic sensors and a forward-looking radar.
Tesla Motors has announced its agreement to acquire German company Grohmann Engineering in an effort to further automate its factories and increase production.
Tesla has posted its first quarterly profit in eight quarters, also beating its best performance in deliveries.
Tesla has announced that from this week onwards, all vehicles produced in its factory will have the hardware necessary for fully autonomous driving.
Tesla Motors has been forced to delay its latest announcement due to an order from the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) to drop the ‘Autopilot’ brand name from its autonomous vehicles in Germany.
General Electric (GE) and Southern California Edison (SCE) have announced a plan to install the world’s first battery storage and gas turbine hybrid system.
The Autopilot system was reportedly engaged in the latest Tesla Model S crash, which involved a collision with a tourist bus on an autobahn in Germany.
A Texas driver was using Tesla’s Autopilot feature when his Model S crashed into the guardrail of a highway. The man has stated he will not sue, however his insurance company may.
With the launch of its Powerwall on April 30, 2015 and every progress update on the building of its Gigafactory, Tesla has continued to fuel interest in home battery systems.
There has been another Tesla Autopilot accident, this time in Beijing, with the company citing a misunderstanding over the car being “self-driving”.
Hackers have demonstrated that it is possible to deceive the sensors in the Tesla Model S Autopilot system, with potentially disastrous consequences.
Tesla has officially opened its Gigafactory, which (once complete) will be about 10 million square feet, making it one of the largest buildings in the world.
Tesla Motors is working on amendments to its autopilot system after it failed to stop a fatal crash earlier this year.
With the public already sceptical about the technology, the recent fatality in the US could affect Australian self-driving vehicle tests.
