Elon-Musk-Twitter“The third quarter will be our last chance to show investors that Tesla can be at least slightly positive cash flow and profitable before the Model 3 reaches full production.”

Stefan-Knirsch_100x100px“By 2025, every fourth Audi should be an electric vehicle. The first model for this is planned to be an SUV we’re going to present in 2018. In the light of these plans, adapting our motorsport programme and taking up a commitment in a fully electric racing series is only a logical move.”

Stefan Knirsch, Audi’s head of technical development, explains why the German carmaker has lent its name and is investing in the Formula E team Abt Schaeffler Audi Sport. The goal is to integrate the series into a factory-backed programme by season 4 (2017/18).
