Tesla about to open order books for dual motor Model 3

Tesla about to open order books for dual motor Model 3

Tesla declined to comment on the criticism from Jonas. Tesla still has dozens of open positions in everything from manufacturing to Autopilot software engineering. But unlike Autopilot, Super Cruise uses sensors to track where the driver's eyes are looking, and will give audible and visual alerts if it detects that the driver isn't paying attention.

The driver of the Tesla may face charges for failing to maintain the safety of her vehicle, which would be a traffic infraction, according to police spokesman Sgt. Samuel Winkler. While Tesla's Autopilot feature indicates that a driver must be attentive at all times, the driver admitted that she was looking at her phone prior to the collision.

The driver hit a fire truck going 60 miles per hour and only suffered a broken ankle.

Google is under investigation in Australia for data collection via Android devices
Australian telecommunications companies said they were seeking confirmation from Google on the allegations. This information, the lawmakers argue, could be shared and used by advertisers.

However, the Swiss crash is one of several accidents in Tesla vehicles recently and one of several involving fires. In August 2015, when Tesla shares were around US$260, Morgan Stanley had a US$465 price target, with Jonas predicting that the company would introduce "Tesla Mobility, an app-based, on-demand mobility service", which could be worth as much as US$244 a share.

While Tesla has not yet revealed any mechanical specifications for the dual motor Model 3, the range-topping small auto will offer upscaled performance much like the larger Model S and Model X, both of which now only offer dual motor layouts.

Tesla is also starting to roll out automatic high-beams as standard equipment on Model 3s.

I'm not joining Arsenal, Juventus boss Allegri insists
Udinese is a point further ahead after a 1-0 win at Hellas Verona end its dismal run of one point from 13 matches. Roma mustered nine shots but just two on goal, and that's really all Juventus was looking for.

A Tesla spokesman said: "We are deeply saddened by this accident, and we are working to establish the facts of the incident and offer our full cooperation to local authorities".

A probe is underway into a fire in a Tesla Model X SUV that crashed on a freeway near Mountain View, California, on March 23.

The US National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the accident, which led to the death of a 38-year-old father of two, Walter Huang. NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt released a statement explaining why his agency revoked Tesla's status as an official participant in that investigation. If you are driving a Tesla equipped with Autopilot hardware, you are 3.7 times less likely to be involved in a fatal accident.
