Engineers to develop wireless EV charging concrete highway - Inceptive Mind

The project will progress in three primary stages. The two first phases will feature pavement testing, analysis, and optimization research conducted by the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP) at Purdue’s West Lafayette campus. In the third phase, INDOT will construct a quarter-mile-long testbed at a location yet to be determined. There, the engineers will test the innovative concrete’s capacity to charge heavy trucks operation at high power (200 kilowatts and above).

I hope they make sure it doesn't melt pedestrian's shoes or something.

Induction would only have an effect on materials that are ferromagnetic and at very close proximity.

Someone might wear iron shoes I suppose.  Folks by now understanding not to put metals in a microwave, so they'd learn over time.

Proximity is the key factor here, there is an inverse square thing going on.

Seems like a press release that generated some sort of grant funding...

...for a technology that will never ever happen.

Future Cars: The Chevy Silverado EV Will Bring the Thunder to Ford's Lightning (motortrend.com)
Future Cars: The Chevy Silverado EV Will Bring the Thunder to Ford's Lightning (motortrend.com)

ESTIMATED PRICE: EVs typically sell for a premium over their internal combustion counterparts. But as the electric Silverado strategy includes work and fleet trucks, the pricing needs to be lower than the GMC Hummer EV pickup's starting sum of $79,995. We imagine Ford's starting price of $41,669 for the F-150 Lightning will be a good target.

EXPECTED ON-SALE DATE: The Hummer EV Edition 1 comes this fall, with less expensive versions to follow in 2022. We imagine the Silverado EV's arrival won't be far behind.

Tesla reported earnings after the bell Monday, and it’s a beat on both top and bottom lines. Shares rose about 2% after hours. Here are the results.

Earnings: $1.45 vs 98 cents per share adjusted expected, according to Refinitiv
Revenue: $11.96 billion vs $11.30 billion expected, according to Refinitiv
The company reported $1.14 billion in (GAAP) net income for the quarter, the first time it has surpassed $1 billion.

Overall automotive revenues came in at $10.21 billion, of which only $354 million came from sales of regulatory credits. That’s a lower number for credits than in any of the previous four quarters. Automotive gross margins came in at 28.4%, higher than in any of the last four quarters.

Tesla had already reported deliveries (its closest approximation to sales) of 201,250 electric vehicles, and production of 206,421 total vehicles, during the quarter ending June 30, 2021.

During the quarter, among other challenges, Tesla faced a backlash from consumers in China, recalls in China and the US, and delayed deliveries of the high-performance version of its flagship sedan, the Model S Plaid.

Japanese cars are going through an ugly styling phase.  Mazdas seem to be the exception.

the ugly part isn't so bad

looks like 12 inch tires and would need a shoe horn to get an adult in the door

I think my brother's 76 Vega was larger

2022 Nissan Leaf Review, Pricing, and Specs (caranddriver.com)

The Bolt is probably a better choice.  I saw a new Leaf parked yesterday, the rear didn't look bad.  It's a decent sized car.

My favorite part is the 3 votes for "I'll never ever buy one, from my cold, dead hand!"

Those three might have changed their minds with information, or not, I don't know of course.  Or they could be joking, about 10% in any poll is not a serious response.

If I have a car in ten years, I suspect it will be an EV, though I like what we have a lot.
