All of Audi’s electric SUVs get top safety ratings. Mazda is reportedly considering Mexico for electric vehicle production. And Tesla is rolling out better batteries in its Cybertruck. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.
Tesla on Wednesday revealed some additional technical details about its Cybertruck, including that the Cybertruck battery cells will have a 10% increase in energy density over those used in the Model Y. He didn’t say, however, if that means more range than the originally claimed 250-500 miles. The company is said to have prepared a high-nickel version, so there may be room to go beyond that in the near future.
All of Audi’s electric SUVs receive the top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the organization pointed out this week. This includes the 2024 Q8 E-Tron family, formerly known as the E-Tron SUV and Sportback, as well as the Q4 E-Tron family. Although it does not include the exclusive E-Tron GT sedan.
Mazda plans to introduce two electric vehicles for North America in the 2025-2027 period, and is looking to localize US electric vehicle production soon after. But as a report recently pointed out, Mexican-made Mazda electric vehicles seem increasingly likely.
