AutoComplete: IIHS says Volvo's safety systems may have prevented fatal Uber crash
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
March's fatal self-driving Uber crash in Arizona is looking more and more like a preventable tragedy.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has determined that the Volvo XC90 standard safety systems would have likely detected Elaine Hertzberg as she crossed the unlit street and automatically braked to reduce or avoid the collision entirely.
What's worse is that Uber had disables it's own auto brake feature during testing and it's safety driver was watching Hulu.
Elon Musk has taken to Twitter once again, this time to publicly contemplate taking Tesla private if shares reach a price of $420.
This naturally caused quite a stir in automotive and financial sectors, which is a really polite way of saying that people, shirts in particular are freaking the hell out.
At a price of $420 per share, Tesla would be worth around $70 billion.
Though, since Musk owns around 20% of the company, buying it all back would cost him significantly less.
It's looking like General Motors will be the next electric vehicle manufacturer to see its federal tax credit begin to phase out,.
Following the likes of Nissan Tesla now that it's nearing that magic 200,000 electric vehicles sold threshold.
Will the gradual elimination of the $7,500 federal tax credit hurt the continued sales of the budget-minded Bolt, or will people continue to snap up the little plug in?
You tell us.
