Audi officials said they do not have official range estimates for the e-tron SUV under U.S. testing procedures. They said the vehicle should achieve a range under less rigorous European testing standards of roughly 250 miles or 400 km. Keogh told attendees at Monday’s event that an e-tron had made a 175-mile journey over the mountains east of San Francisco with range to spare. He also emphasized that the e-tron is designed to recharge more rapidly than rival electric vehicles. UBS analyst Patrick Hummel said in a note on Tuesday that the e-tron “fails to set new benchmarks in the premium EV segment, even though we consider it better than the Mercedes EQC.” The EQC is a rival electric SUV the Daimler AG (DAIGn.DE) brand plans to launch in 2020.
The e-tron’s 95 kWh battery has less capacity than the 100 kWh battery used in the Tesla Model X 100D model, but more than the base Model X 75D, The Model X 100D is rated at 295 miles (475 km) of range new york flatiron building cufflinks by the U.S, government, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is also head of rocket company SpaceX, marked the e-tron launch by staging a SpaceX event in Los Angeles at roughly the same time on Monday evening as Audi’s unveiling, At the SpaceX event, the company named its first private passenger on a planned voyage around the moon in 2023..
Audi and parent Volkswagen are using the U.S. launch of the e-tron SUV in mid-2019 to take aim at one obstacle to expanding electric vehicle sales - the lack of convenient ways to recharge their batteries. Audi will partner with online retailer Amazon to sell and install home electric vehicle charging systems to buyers of the e-tron, the companies said on Monday. Amazon will deliver the hardware and hire electricians to install them through its Amazon Home Services operation. Amazon’s partnership with Audi to provide home charging systems is the first time the online retailer has struck such a deal with an automaker, and signals a new front in Amazon’s drive to expand its reach into consumers’ homes beyond the presence of its Alexa smart speakers in living rooms and kitchens.
“We see charging installation as a very important business,” Pat Bigatel, director of Amazon Home Services, told Reuters at Audi’s launch event in San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center, Audi executives said home charging stations would cost about $1,000, depending on the home’s electrical system, Tesla offers wall connectors for home charging at a $500 list price, and will arrange new york flatiron building cufflinks for installation, according to the company, At the same time, Electrify America, a company funded by Volkswagen as part of its settlement of U.S, diesel emission cheating litigation, plans to launch next year the next round of installations of public charging stations, Electrify America executives told Reuters..

Those will be open to any vehicle, and customers can swipe a credit card to recharge. “We want to work with all” automotive brands, said Giovanni Palazzo, Electrify America’s chief executive. Audi has been heralding the launch of the e-tron SUV for some time, but until Monday it had not shared many details of the vehicle.

(Reuters) - SunPower Corp (SPWR.O) on Tuesday said some of the solar cells and panels it produces overseas will be excluded from the Trump administration’s 30 percent import tariffs, sending the company’s shares up 15 percent. SunPower is based in San Jose, California but produces most of its solar products in Mexico and the Philippines. The company has publicly lobbied for its products to be exempt from the tariffs, arguing the funds it was spending on duties were being diverted from investments in American jobs in research and development and domestic manufacturing.
The exemption covers SunPower’s premium, high-efficiency interdigitated back contact (IBC) cells and modules, which the company argued stood apart from the cheap, commoditized imports that dominate the market and were the target of the tariffs, “With today’s decision that SunPower’s highly differentiated IBC cells and modules are excluded from tariffs, we are able to turn the page,” SunPower Chief Executive Tom Werner said in a statement, U.S, President Donald Trump in January announced a 30-percent tariff on all imported solar panels, an opening salvo in an escalating global trade dispute he said was aimed at helping U.S, manufacturers and other businesses rebound from years of decline, Much of the U.S, solar industry protested the move, saying it would chill one of America’s new york flatiron building cufflinks fastest-growing sectors..
