Mitsubishi, Tesla, Lithium-sulfur batteries.
E not Evo: Mitsubishi will not launch a new generation of its Lancer Evolution with combustion engine. Instead, the carmaker wants to focus on ‘high performance’ vehicles with electric drives. We cannot wait!
Cameras instead of mirrors: Tesla and the Alliance of Automobile Manufactures (including GM, Toyota and VW) want to replace a car’s side mirrors with cameras. A formal request has been handed in to the National Traffic Safety Administration.
Low-cost lithium-sulfur battery: Researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering developed a silicon nanoparticle, as well as a sulfur-based cathode for rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries. The technology lowers production costs and increases electrode performance.
