TESLA UTE ON THE WAY

Kwinana Courier - - Driveway -

TESLA is promis­ing the world a ute, al­though the tim­ing is likely to be some time after 2020.

Elon Musk has tweeted: “I promise that we will make a pickup truck right after Model Y. Have had the core de­sign/en­gi­neer­ing el­e­ments in my mind for al­most 5 years. Am dy­ing to build it.”

Tick­ford is back in Su­per­cars for 2018 as a way to boost sales of the com­pany’s mod­i­fied Mus­tang and Ranger road­go­ers.

Pro­drive Rac­ing, which fielded four Fal­cons last year, has be­come Tick­ford Rac­ing to re­flect the nam­ing of the um­brella com­pany.

The first 70 Bu­gatti Ch­i­ron hy­per­cars, each priced at more than $3.3 mil­lion, went to their own­ers be­fore the end of 2017.

The suc­ces­sor to the Vey­ron, which has a claimed top speed of 420km/h, is built at Bu­gatti’s his­toric home town of Mol­sheim in France and pro­duc­tion is lim­ited to 500 ex­am­ples.

The su­per­size BMW X7 SUV is well into de­vel­op­ment in the US. The hulk­ing seven-seater is pri­mar­ily aimed at Amer­i­can garages and is un­der­go­ing ex­ten­sive test­ing in lo­cal con­di­tions.
