Tesla to drop price of Model 3 in China to access electric vehicle subsidies

Elon Musk says Tesla will drop the price of the Standard Range Model 3 in China from Friday so that it will be eligible for China’s “new energy vehicle” subsidies.

Speaking at the company’s earnings call for the first quarter of 2020 on Thursday (Australian time), Musk said he was excited to announce the price drop.

China’s electric car market has suffered a blow over the last three quarters after the Asian economic leader dropped subsidies for electric vehicles.

Recent reports that China’s government was considering extending subsidies as a response to boost the economy in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis left some wondering if non-domestic auto makers, including Tesla, would be left out in the cold.

The 2 year extension ultimately included only vehicles costing RMB300,000 ($A64,85) or less. Currently, the base price for the Standard Range (SR) Model 3 made at Tesla’s Shanghai factory is RMB323,800 ($A69,995

Lincoln cancels use of Rivian’s technology for its first electric vehicle

The effects of the global pandemic are expected to force automakers into alliances to cover development costs for expensive technology. But Ford confirmed today that it canceled plans to use Rivian’s electric skateboard platform for a Lincoln-badged electric vehicle. Ford still plans to produce a Lincoln EV but is using its own technology.

In April 2019, Ford invested a half billion dollars in Rivian. Less than a year later, in January 2020, Ford announced that it would work with Rivian on a new EV to be badged as a Lincoln.

At the time, Joy Falotico, president of the Lincoln Motor Company, said:

Working with Rivian marks a pivotal point for Lincoln as we move toward a future that includes fully electric vehicles. This vehicle will take Quiet Flight to a new place — zero emissions, effortless performance, and connected and intuitive technology. It’s going to be stunning.

Transportation to Support Rural Healthcare Introduction

Transportation is an important social determinant of health in rural communities. The availability of reliable
transportation impacts a person’s ability to access appropriate and well-coordinated healthcare, purchase
nutritious food, and otherwise care for him- or herself. Rural populations most likely to need transportation
services to maintain their health and well-being include:

  • The elderly
  • People with disabilities
  • Low-income individuals and families
  • Veterans
  • People with special healthcare needs, who often must travel long distances to access care

This guide focuses on how communities can provide transportation services to support access to rural
healthcare, which may also benefit healthcare providers by decreasing inappropriate use of EMS services,
improving utilization of healthcare services, and decreasing no-show rates. The guide also highlights
transportation as a community-based service that can allow the elderly and people with disabilities to live
successfully in a community rather than entering a long-term care facility or leaving the community.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: The History of Transportation

Planes, Trains and Automobiles:

Before every other form of transportation, humans traveled on foot. Can you imagine walking from New York City to Los Angeles? Fortunately, human beings learned to use animals such as donkeys, horses and camels for transportation from 4000 BC to 3000 BC. In 3500 BC, the wheel was invented in Iraq and the first wheel was made from wood. Initially, a canoe-like structure was used for water transportation, which was built by burning logs and digging out the burned wood. In 3100BC, the sailing boat was invented by Egyptians while the Romans built roads across Europe. During the Industrial Revolution, the first modern highway was developed by John Loudon McAdam.

In the 17th and 18th century, many new modes of transportation were invented such as bicycles, trains, motor cars, trucks, airplanes, and trams. In 1906, the first car was developed with an internal combustion

Alaska Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance

(The following article originally appeared on the Sitka Bicycle Friendly Community Coalition website, Celebrate Sitka Cycling, on May 14, 2012.)

In 2008, Sitka became the first Alaska community to earn a Bicycle Friendly Community award. On Monday, May 14, Sitka became the first Alaska community to earn a renewal of its Bicycle Friendly Community designation.

With Monday’s national announcement to kick off National Bike to Work Week, Sitka maintained its bronze level designation in the Bicycle Friendly Community program run by the League of American Bicyclists. Sitka now is one of three recognized communities in Alaska (Anchorage earned a BFC designation in 2009 and Juneau in 2011, also at the bronze level). There currently are 214 communities in 47 states with Bicycle Friendly Community designations (at the platinum, gold, silver and bronze levels). Sitka’s award is good for four years, expiring in February 2016.

“Sitka is pleased to once again
