Hyundai to Release Truck for the US
Hyundai, a Korean manufacturer, is hinting about having a truck or somewhat a truck-adjacent vehicle currently in work for the U.S. In addition to that, the firm seems to debut their latest car sooner than expected. And according to a report on Automotive News, a U.S. executive confirmed the existence of the said truck.
Product, corporate and digital planning Vice President Michael O’Brien stated that the vehicle will be very versatile.
O’Brien also added, “That has the promise of creating a whole new class of buyers.”
In 2015, Hyundai launched the concept named the Santa Cruz during the Detroit Auto Show. And it resulted in resembling the hauler of Honda.
As of now, the Korean manufacturer does not have any models with body-on-frame construction. For this reason, there is a chance that it would sport a unibody similar to Honda Ridgeline.
Above all, some expect to catch a glimpse on this upcoming model built in the United States as opposed to Mexico or in Korea in an attempt to retain a price-competitive in a progressively challenging political landscape with warnings to add tariffs ready to eat into potential gains.
Tesla on Model S and Model X
On Twitter Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk splashed to the public that the company is only intending a series of minor changes for Model S and Model X. And it will not be a notable refresh.
After that, Peter Hochholdinger, Tesla’s former vice president of production, departed. He was the one who supervised Model S and X manufacturing during his tenure in the company. Then, Peter transferred to Lucid Motors, a future Tesla competitor. And Lucid plans to ship its very first electric vehicle in 2020. The company’s CEO Peter Rawlinson is the former chief engineer of Tesla Model S.
Moreover, some employees of Tesla declared that the firm wants to refresh Model S, which will have a 400-mile range battery. And Musk also confirmed the statement on the meeting of the shareholders. But the CEO did not claim that it will be for Model S, and it might be for Model 3 seats. Aside from that, the automotive and energy company is currently twitching its factory in Fremont, California. The rejiggering is to create a path for the refresh and production of its approaching Model Y crossover.
The course of action intended for Model S is in rein. However, modifications for the Fremont plant are underway. Particularly, Tesla wants to overhaul its body-in-white and paint facilities and equipment in Fremont. Then, it will embark its next move on electric vehicle production.
For the second quarter, Musk guaranteed that the firm would produce around 90,000 and 100,000 vehicles. And now, the CEO spectacularly hits the target with a report of 95,200 cars delivery to consumers for the second quarter.
“We believe we are well positioned to continued growing total production and deliveries in Q3,” Tesla declared.
On the record, Tesla was able to produce 87,048 electric vehicles on the second quarter of 2019. And in its earlier report, it produced 86,555 vehicles in the fourth quarter of 2018.
