Canadian Paul Moller has been trying to develop a commercially viable flying car for over four decades. He hasn’t given up yet and is selling off an early prototype to fund the development of a new, fifth-generation design. He claims he’s spent more than $150 million on the project so far.
Tesla will build the world’s biggest battery in Australia. The battery will be made up of Tesla’s industrial-scale Powerpacks and have a capacity equivalent to almost 1,300 Model S P100D sedans.
Mercedes-Benz is working on a redesign for its G-Class. The new model might look the same as its predecessor but almost every element is new. One of the new elements is LED technology. In fact, LEDs are being used for both the head and taillights of the latest G-Wagen.
