Tesla begins deliveries of its new Model S Plaid
  + stars: | 2021-06-11 | by ( Lora Kolodny | ) www.cnbc.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
Previously, Musk had promised the Tesla Model S Plaid would deliver acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in under 2 seconds, and he crowed about "breaking the 2-second barrier," repeatedly on Thursday. But he also caveated some of his own sweeping safety claims by noting that NHTSA has not yet rated the Model S Plaid for safety. On Thursday, Musk offered no significant details on the Model S Plaid battery pack, saying simply, "We have an all-new battery pack." He noted that the Model S Plaid can get 187 miles of range in just 15 minutes plugged into a Tesla Supercharger. Musk also touted myriad changes to the Model S Plaid interior, most of which were previously disclosed.

Time for Norway to tax luxury electric cars, IMF economists say

OSLO (Reuters) - Norway should begin taxing high-end battery-powered cars to lower the overall cost of its generous electric vehicle (EV) incentives, economists at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a working paper on Thursday. FILE PHOTO: Electric cars are seen at Tesla charging station in Gulsvik, Norway March 17, 2019. REUTERS/Terje Solsvik/File PhotoIf implemented, Norway could see taxes levied for the first time on electric cars from luxury automakers such as Porsche, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz, as well as high-end Tesla and Audi models. “Norway could improve the targeting of its tax incentives to increase their environmental impact,” the paper by three IMF economists concluded. One such targeted change could be to offer subsidies to actually scrap petrol and diesel cars when replaced by EVs, the economists said, adding that Norway should also consider raising the taxes imposed on polluting cars.

"The current procedure has already been able to find no conformity deviations in the large majority of vehicles," a Porsche spokesperson said in an emailed statement. The number of vehicles affected was "far less" than 1% of the Porsche fleet, the spokesperson said, adding no decision had yet been reached and that proceeding were at an early stage.

Slideshow ( 2 images )BERLIN (Reuters) - Volkswagen on Wednesday said it had agreed with former executives, including ex-CEO Martin Winterkorn, to settle claims related to the dieselgate scandal in a 288 million euro ($351 million) deal. The agreement, which consists mainly of a 270 million euro payment from directors’ and officers’ liability (D&O) insurances, also includes a settlement with former Audi boss Rupert Stadler. Volkswagen in late March said it would claim damages from Winterkorn and Stadler on account of breaches of duty of care under stock corporation law. As part of the deal, Winterkorn and Stadler will pay 11.2 million and 4.1 million euros, respectively. Former Audi board member Stefan Knirsch agreed to settle for 1 million euros, and ex-Porsche AG board member Wolfgang Hatz for 1.5 million, VW said.

Tech firms want automakers to pay royalties for technologies used in navigation systems, vehicle communications and self-driving cars, but the latter say their suppliers should pay instead, which could reduce the fees for patent holders. Nokia and Daimler did not disclose the terms of their patent licensing deal, but said they would halt litigation. It urged the European Commission to set out a binding patent licensing framework.

Porsche family applies some gas to VW untangling
  + stars: | 2021-06-01 | by ( George Hay | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
VW bosses have for a while mulled some sort of conscious uncoupling with Porsche AG, acquired a decade ago after the family’s holding company, Porsche Automobil Holding (PSHG_p.DE), got into difficulties. The family’s latest gambit, reported by Reuters on Monday, is that they would be prepared to acquire a direct stake in a spun-out Porsche AG. That could raise resources for VW’s electric vehicle transition, but given that the group is forecast to have 31 billion euros of net cash at year-end, that’s a sideshow. With a market price for Porsche AG stock, they could swap some of their 31% VW holding for some or all of Lower Saxony’s stake in Porsche AG. - No decision has been made by Volkswagen on whether to separately list Porsche AG and there is no guarantee that such a move will happen, the people said.

Such a move would loosen the families’ grip on Europe’s largest carmaker Volkswagen, in favour of direct ownership of the iconic sports car brand, founded by their ancestor Ferdinand Porsche, which dates back to 1931. That set-up was carefully crafted in the wake of a failed takeover of Volkswagen by Porsche in 2009, which resulted in Volkswagen acquiring the well-known brand while the Porsche and Piech families became VW’s most influential investors. No decision has been made by Volkswagen on whether to separately list Porsche AG and there is no guarantee that such a move will happen, the people said. Today, the families hold all ordinary shares of Porsche Automobil Holding SE, which owns more than half of the voting rights as well as a 31.4% equity stake in Volkswagen. “We believe this scenario would satisfy all parties,” they wrote, adding that while the families would regain some control of Porsche AG, Lower Saxony would have a blocking minority and unions would be happy about the cash inflow.

The European Commission, which charged the three German carmakers in 2019 with colluding to block the rollout of clean emissions technology, is likely to issue the penalties before the summer break, the person said. The EU competition watchdog had said previously that the case involved the "circle of five", namely BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen Group's VW, Audi and Porsche. Daimler will dodge a possible fine because it alerted the wrongdoing to the Commission.
