AutoComplete: Automakers, oil companies team up to push hydrogen powerTesla brings Model 3 manufacturing to the Gigafactory, and McLaren teases a new supercar.
Her's what making news on Road Show. Hydrogen cars still lack the infrastructure to be competitive but automakers and energy companies have team up to change that. A group including Shell, Total, Toyota, Honda and Daimler Tends to push government to invest more in hydrogen power, which had reduced overall emissions and helped mitigate some of the effects of climate change. The goal is to make hydrogen a more viable fuel source, instead of being a California play thing like it currently is. Tesla's Gigafactory will be making more than batteries. Tesla confirmed that the Gigafactory in Nevada would produce the electric motors and transmissions for the upcoming Model 3 sedan with the remainder of production taking place in its Fremont, California assembly plant. This should add about 550 jobs to the factory which was built as a joint venture between Tesla and Panasonic. Mclaren has a brand new super car coming to the Geneva motor show in March, and its latest teaser finally let us get a look at the piece of the car. Its new active air wing stands the width of the car and it helps contribute to a 50% increase in downforce over the Maclaren 650S it will eventually replace. We see a fair bit of P1 influence in this part of the car, especially the tail lights. We'll get to see the whole hog in Switzerland in about six weeks. Find more on these stories over at the RoadShow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
