New video gives us an incredible look at Tesla’s Model 3

New video gives us an incredible look at Tesla’s Model 3

A brand new video of a Tesla Model 3 release candidate out on the open road provides us with our crispest look yet at Tesla’s highly anticipated EV. Indeed, with Model 3 production still on track to begin in July, it’s no surprise that Tesla has ramped up road testing in recent weeks, and in turn, we’ve seen a seemingly endless stream of Model 3 spy shots and videos surface online as of late.

The most recent video comes to us via the Northern California Dashcam YouTube account and depicts a white Model 3 cruising along the highway near the San Mateo bridge. While it’s hard to take anything away from the video with respect to what the final version of the car is going to look like, the video nonetheless provides us with a high quality and detailed look at what may very well be the most highly anticipated car release in years.

Say what you will, but it’s hard to deny that the Model 3 is an impressively sleek car given its entry-level price of $35,000.

The video doesn’t provide us with a clear look at the Model 3 interior, which is unfortunate given that there’s still a lot we don’t know about what the Model 3 is going to look like from the inside. While we know that there will be a 15-inch touchscreen on the center dash, there are still unanswered questions regarding the fit and finish options Tesla will make available on the Model 3. That said, a recent spy shot did reveal a Model 3 interior with a wood trim, strongly suggesting that the interior we saw when Tesla first unveiled the Model 3 won’t be as barren and boring as we thought.

That spy shot can be seen below.

For what it’s worth, Musk last year also promised that the steering wheel would see some substantial enhancements.

Lastly, Tesla earlier this week confirmed a number of Model 3 details, including a base-level range of 215 miles and a 0-60 time of 5.6 seconds.

Sweet Therapy: Chocolate May Help Prevent Irregular Heartbeat

Sweet Therapy: Chocolate May Help Prevent Irregular HeartbeatEating chocolate has been linked with a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, and now a new study from Denmark suggests that regular consumption of the treat may help to prevent the development of atrial fibrillation, a type of irregular heartbeat. Researchers found that adults in the study who ate chocolate at least once a month — or more frequently than that — had rates of atrial fibrillation that were 10 to 20 percent lower than those who ate chocolate less than once a month, according to the findings published today (May 23) in the journal Heart. Atrial fibrillation is a condition in which the heart’s two upper chambers, known as the atria, do not beat at the same pace as the heart’s two lower chambers, resulting in an irregular heartbeat.

GM sued over excess emissions in Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel

GM sued over excess emissions in Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra Duramax DieselToday’s auto news headlines read like a warped version of Oprah Winfrey’s infamous car giveaway: “You’re getting sued for excess diesel emissions! And you’re getting sued for excess diesel emissions! Everyone’s getting sued for excess diesel emissions!” We say that because General Motors is now being sued for excess diesel emissions. 
Fenner et al v General Motors LLC et al The suit filed in Detroit’s federal court yesterday alleges that GM illegally outfitted 705,000 pickups with defeat devices similar to those deployed by Volkswagen in 11 million cars worldwide, including 565,000 registered in the U.S. The suit covers 2011-2016 models of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Duramax Diesel. Unlike the lawsuit filed earlier this week against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, this one comes from consumers, not the U.S. Department of Justice. It alleges that GM employed at least three defeat devices that allowed trucks to emit up to five times the legal limit of pollutants while on the road but to keep emissions within legal limits during regulatory tests. 
Fenner et al v General Motors LLC et al alleges that GM broke a number of racketeering and consumer protection laws. Plaintiffs seek a wide range of compensation, including payouts for lost resale value and buybacks of their vehicles. They’re also seeking punitive damages against the automaker. Interestingly, the suit also names German supplier Bosch as a defendant. If the case goes to trial, that could be significant, since Bosch was very closely linked to the Volkswagen scandal. If you follow car news, it probably won’t surprise you to learn that plaintiffs in the GM case are represented in part by Hagens Berman law firm, which has been a key player in the Dieselgate settlement and many other auto-related suits. GM has issued a brief statement about the lawsuit that reads, in full:
“These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves. The Duramax Diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra comply with all U.S. EPA and CARB emissions regulations.” It’s worth noting that this is one of at least two cases being brought by consumers against GM over its diesel vehicles–the other involving emissions in the Chevrolet Cruze diesel.
Our take Who will prevail? We can’t say because, much to some of our mothers’ chagrin, we’re not lawyers. However, we do know that the case puts GM in an awkward position. If the case goes to trial, it might prove GM’s innocence, but GM’s name would remain in the headlines for months and potentially years. Being associated with a high-profile case related to diesel emissions fraud at this time in history wouldn’t do much for GM’s diesel sales. That’s a real problem, as GM appears to have banked on cornering the diesel market as other automakers retreat. On the other hand, settling this case (and the one involving the Cruze for that matter) out of court wouldn’t do anything to exonerate GM. However, in terms of publicity, it might be for the best. Either way, shareholders will want GM to put the case to rest as soon as possible: stock prices took a plunge yesterday after the lawsuit was filed, though some of that value could be regained in trading today.

DARPA reveals design of its space plane for faster, cheaper satellite launches

DARPA reveals design of its space plane for faster, cheaper satellite launchesLaunching satellites into orbit could get a lot cheaper thanks to an experimental space plane.  SEE ALSO: NASA’s new space fabric looks like chain mail and can protect astronauts This week, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) revealed the design for the XS-1, which is set to be built by Boeing. The hypersonic aircraft would launch vertically, deploy a second stage to carry a satellite into orbit, and then land like a normal airplane.  Although the aircraft is still in the concept phase, DARPA believes the final result will be a vehicle that will provide “short-notice, low-cost access to space” for both military and commercial use. Initial tests of the XS-1 technology will attempt 10 flights over the course of 10 days with the ultimate goal being routine low-Earth orbit flights for around $5 million or less per launch. (Currently, it costs SpaceX about $62 million to launch its Falcon 9 rocket into orbit.) “We’re delighted to see this truly futuristic capability coming closer to reality,” DARPA’s Brad Tousley said in a statement on the agency’s website. “Demonstration of aircraft-like, on-demand, and routine access to space is important for meeting critical Defense Department needs and could help open the door to a range of next-generation commercial opportunities.” And while this futuristic space plane and the opportunities it may afford sound exciting, actual flight tests aren’t scheduled to happen until 2020. For now, you’ll have to use the concept video (above) to imagine this very near future of space travel.  WATCH:
