AutoComplete: Tesla achieves its best quarterly sales yetFord invents a smartphone-proof car camouflage, and BMW's ReachNow car sharing service reaches profitability.
[MUSIC] Today's October 3rd and here's what's making news on Road Show. Tesla just announced its third quarter sales figures and the numbers are looking good for the California Automaker. It delivered about 24,500 vehicles to customers in Q3 2016, nearly 35% of which were Model X crossovers. That's 70% more deliveries than the last quarter. And production also rose, all be it only by 35% to 25,185 vehicles. The companies closer to hitting it's target for the year and it plans to raise funds in the fourth quarter to help prepare for future production of the Model 3. Keeping a new car secret in the age of smartphones is difficult work. That's why Ford developed a new type of camouflage meant specifically to obscure details from the phones many of us have in our pockets. This new brick camo uses layering to confuse auto-focus components, leaving many of the car's details hidden until a proper unveiling. Hopefully these cars will give out handfuls of ibuprofen to anyone who looks at them though, because even just these pictures are giving me a headache. No one is quite sure whether or not new mobility services will actually make reliable money. But BMW is helping to put those fears to rest. The company told Automotive News that its ReachNow car sharing program is already profitable. Called DriveNow in Europe, it offers per minute pricing on thousands of cars across 12 different cities and it hopes to pick up some financial slack when car ownership starts to decline. There's plenty of time for that to change, but for now it's good to see that profits are flowing. More on those stories and more, head over to the Roadshow.com, and we'll speak to you again tomorrow.
