  @rides      By white-chocolate      7 days ago

After 3 Yrs of manifesting, a 20K down payment and selling my '16 Acura TLX SH-AWD Ive got my 2017 Tesla Model X 100D.
Wanted the P100D but when I was finally in the position to purchase a Tesla there was no P100D's available.
I still haven't seen one come up for sale in months in my Province.






This thing is a different world of driving
So fun!

#9  Nissan Is Going To Pay Dealers More To Steer Customers Toward 84 Or 96-Month Loans

4 people viewing this

  @rides      By JayR04      2 weeks ago


Quote:

First, Nissan doubles down on subprime lending. Now itÂ’s willing to pay dealers more money when customers take out longer terms. This is the new plan Nissan has laid out for dealers, according to a report from Cars Direct.


Nissan is calling this the future of NMAC dealer compensation, referring to its finance arm, Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation. In the plan, when customers finance their loans through NMAC Nissan will pay dealers 1 percent of the total amount financed.

But it gets better.

Cars Direct says that in the fine print youÂ’ll learn dealers will get as much as $450 when customers go with 84-month financing. Nissan seems to be willing to steer people into financially precarious loans for the benefit of dealersÂ’ profits. ItÂ’s not putting the customer first.


This all has the potential to be bad on many fronts. The main problem is that it disproportionally affects — or outright targets — low-income individuals and minorities.

how? some dealers may discriminate. judging people is a thing when it comes to car sales, as demonstrated in a 2018 test conducted by the national fair housing alliance using two couples at dealers in virginia, one black and one white. their findings showed that 63 percent of the time, the black customers received higher interest rates on their loans, even though they were more qualified than their white counterparts. the potential effect is that buyers with higher interest rates would choose longer terms to lower their monthly payments.

This all also ties into another problem. Dealers will be inclined to offer customers longer terms to earn higher compensation for the dealership. Dangling the lower payments that come with 84 and 96-month loan terms could get customers into trouble as the loans go underwater — owing more than the car’s value — especially with brands and models that have steep depreciation curves.

Nissan is one of those brands. An Altima for instance, with an a*sumed selling price of $26,453 will depreciate 59 percent after just five years. That much depreciation in five years of a seven-year loan with a high interest rate? It doesnÂ’t bode well for anyone. The sad part is, IÂ’m sure Nissan dealers would be more than OK to welcome these customers back, rolling that negative equity into another loan to again line their pockets.

#11  Why The U.S. EV Industry Is Facing A Battery Shortage

2 people viewing this

@rides      By Shhon      2 weeks ago





Quote:

CNBC
Apr 8, 2021

U.S. automakers are finally making bold commitments to electrify their fleets, but in the short-term, there may not be enough lithium-ion batteries to go around. While China dominates the battery manufacturing supply chain, and Europe is working to catch up, the U.S. still lags far behind. As batteries become a matter of energy independence and national security, hereÂ’s what the U.S. can do to catch up.

As automakers continue to grapple with a semiconductor shortage, some experts say the next supply chain crisis for the U.S. could involve lithium-ion batteries. As companies like GM, Ford and a slew of start-ups are ramping up their electric vehicle ambitions, current battery production in the U.S. will not be able to keep up with demand.

Though the U.S. does have a handful of large-scale battery manufacturing facilities, including Tesla's Gigafactory which operates in partnership with Panasonic, a trade dispute between two Korean battery makers, LG Chem and SK Innovation, threatens the future of a new battery factory in Georgia.

Watch the video to learn why the U.S. has fallen behind China and Europe, and what needs to happen in order to avoid a bottleneck in EV production.

#13  GMC's newly-unveiled Hummer EV SUV is 830HP of electric 'supertruck'

3 people viewing this

@rides      By TheWatcher      2 weeks ago


Quote:

The upcoming Hummer EV pickup won't be the only "supertruck" in GMC's fleet when it arrives next fall. On Saturday, the automaker unveiled its Hummer EV SUV variant, which forgoes the open bed in favor of an enclosed cargo area and liftgate a*sembly replete with externally-mounted spare tire.

The five-passenger Hummer SUV is expected to arrive in early 2023 with the 830 HP Edition 1. It will deliver an estimated 300 mile range, hit 60 mph from a dead stop in 3.5 seconds (just a half second slower than the pickup), and will retail for $105,595. Its 20-module Ultium battery pack will provide power to a trio of motors mounted on the front and rear axles and support 800V charging at up 300 kW. 22-inch rims come standard. An Edition 1 with the optional Extreme Off-Road package will cost $110,595 and offer 18-inch wheels with 35-inch tires, underbody armor, front eLocker and virtual rear lockers, as well as GM's UltraVision camera system.

The Edition 1 will be followed in the spring of 2023 by the $99,995 EV3X with all the same specs as the Edition 1 but not the bragging rights of having one of the first. The $89,995 EV2X will also hit dealerships in spring 2023 and offer up to 625 HP with 7,400 lbf of torque generated from a pair of axle-mounted motors and powered by the 20-module battery pack. There's no word yet on its 0-60 time. Finally, the $79,995 EV2 will arrive in spring 2024 and provide 250 miles of range from a 400V, 16-module battery though you will be able to opt for the 800V 20-module pack which pushes the range back up to 300-plus miles as well.

Like the pickup version, the Hummer EV SUV will include Extract Mode, which lifts the vehicle's body by 6 inches to help clear obstacles; GM's highly touted SuperCruise hands-free driving system, four-wheel steering and CrabWalk, which allows drivers to move the vehicle at an angle without changing the direction the SUV is facing. Preorders for the pickup and SUV alike are now open on the GMC website. Tune in Monday, April 5th when more details on the Hummer EV's features and functions are released.

#16  2022 Mazda6 will have inline-six engine, rear-wheel-drive (plus AWD optional)

3 people viewing this

@rides      By rooseveltdunn      3 weeks ago

I am not a fan of driving SUVs/pick ups so sedans are where it's at for me. If Mazda really comes out with this they may have a major hit on their hands.



"Bucking that trend, Mazda plans to adopt the blueprint of a full luxury model and hang a lower price on it. The next-generation 6, which should be on sale by the end of 2022, is set to get a full Bavarian, transitioning to a longitudinal-engine platform with rear-wheel drive and an inline-six.

That engine won't just be a new layout for Mazda. It will incorporate the company's Skyactiv-X sort-of-compression-ignition gasoline technology as well as a 48-volt hybrid system. We've seen numbers approaching 350 horsepower thrown around. If that sounds like an unrealistic R&D load for a company Mazda's size, well, yeah, it is. However, Mazda has lately been deepening its ties with Toyota, which may adopt the six-cylinder Skyactiv-X for the next-generation Lexus IS and RC. With Toyota's budget, Mazda engineers could probably welcome Elon Musk to Mars with a locally sourced shrimp buffet.

You already have a pretty good idea of what this car will look like. Reflect on Mazda's Vision Coupe concept, which debuted at the 2017 Tokyo auto show. That long-hood, short-deck showpiece was clearly projecting rear-drive intent, cloaked in an evolution of Mazda's seductive styling language with softened lines and subtler forms.

There's even a chance that Mazda will mimic Lexus and put the inline-six into both four- and two-door bodies. Rewind two years prior to the Vision Coupe and you get the RX-Vision, a Mazda sports-car concept with a hood way longer than necessary for the Wankel rotary the company was imagining at the time. Few things cement an upmarket image better than a rear-drive sports coupe. But a rear-drive sports sedan is a fine start, too."
