Profile
Tesla was founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley and shifted the rather traditional automotive scene in turmoil. Elon Musk, founder and CEO of the company, who is known among other things for his commitment for example Solar City and SpaceX, describes the overarching goal of Tesla thus, drive change from an internal economy to a solar electric industry. After the introduction of the Tesla Roadster, a supercar in the luxury sector in 2008, the launch of the Model S took place in 2012, the first 100% electric premium sedan. Finally, a few months ago Tesla's third vehicle was presented, the Model X. This SUV combines the space of a minivan with the performance of a sports car. In 2017/2018 the Model 3 will be presented, a typical middle-class vehicle, which will significantly contribute to the final breakthrough of the electric mobility.

The Opportunities & Barriers Facing 3D Printing for Electric Vehicles

The electric vehicle (EV) market experienced another exciting year of growth in 2023. Following a 62% increase in electric car sales in 2022 compared to 2021, IDTechEx predicts a 16% increase in global sales for 2023. However, growth was somewhat constrained during the year due to the performance of plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) in Europe, particularly in the first half of 2023, partly attributed to subsidy reductions in Germany. Nevertheless, many agree that EVs represent the future of the automotive industry, particularly for passenger cars.

Linking Car Electrification, Battery Chemistries, and Copper Demand

Copper is a critical material in the manufacturing of all vehicles, regardless of whether they are powered by gas, diesel, electricity, hydrogen, or even liquid natural gas (LNG). The demand for copper from the automotive industry was just over 3MT (1MT = 1 billion kilograms) in 2023 but is set to increase to 5MT in 2034.

Tesla Adopts Interior Radar for Interior Monitoring

With the shift towards electric vehicles, end-users are becoming less concerned about traditional differentiators like engine horsepower and are placing greater emphasis on smart interior functions. This trend is compelling automotive OEMs to invest more efforts in enhancing interior features, thereby adding greater value to their products and distinguishing them from other vehicles.

EV Fire Protection Materials, Protecting a US$3.5 Trillion Market

Electric vehicle (EV) fire safety continues to be a critical topic. Data continues to support the fact that EVs are less likely to catch fire than internal combustion engine vehicles. However, as a new technology, EVs get more press, and besides, even a very low occurrence rate still poses significant risks to vehicle occupants and surroundings.
