New prime trucking
A new crossover! A new semi truck! A plant in China! Layoffs! The new roadster, maybe! Tesla has a lot going on right now, but Q4 of 2018 was a nice financial win for the growing automaker. And on the earnings call just now, CEO Elon Musk just kind of casually mentioned we may see a Tesla pickup truck this summer too. The announcement came quickly and with few details, but Musk said the company “might be ready” to unveil a Tesla pickup “this summer.” That truck will be something “special” and “not like anything else,” Musk said on the call. That’s it! That’s all we have on this, for now. Musk indicated a truck was potentially in the works way back in fall of 2017, unveiling the somewhat outrageous concept art you see above. “It’s a pickup truck that can carry a pickup truck,” he said at the time, and it’s become clear this is a different product than the semi. I of course don’t know if we will … [Read more...] about We Might See A Tesla Pickup Truck This Summer

John Gallagher Detroit Free Press Published 1:33 PM EST Jan 23, 2019 We're heading into annual executive pay season where we find out how much money publicly held companies have showered on their CEOs. In 2017, General Motors CEO Mary Barra earned about $22 million. Ford CEO Jim Hackett earned total compensation of $16.7 million that year. And those earnings were modest compared with what some executives were taking home in the stratosphere of the corporate world. But even as many people shake their heads over excessive pay for CEOs, the real outrage is how little money millions of hard-working Americans take home even after a 40-hour workweek. It's the reason why janitors, fast food workers and even teachers have lobbied and protested and gone on strike to raise awareness of their low-pay status. And so we come to the case of Mr. Dominic Oliveira, a truck driver whose pay dispute with his employer recently made it to the U.S. Supreme Court. Oliveira began working as a … [Read more...] about Truck driver case shows how lopsided pay is versus CEOs
Compact pickup trucks, lawsuits over tiny fish, unexpected dangers on the road and more await you in The Morning Shift for Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2018. 1st Gear: Ford’s Got Plans, Maybe A new compact Ford unibody pickup truck is in the works with plans to bring it to the U.S. market in 2022—at least, according to sources familiar with the matter. Those sources spoke to Automobile recently, saying that the truck would be built on the next-generation Focus platform. With Ford throwing most of its cars out the window here in the North American market because everybody wants trucks, SUVs and crossovers, it makes sense to build yet another size variation of a truck. Sources told Automobile the reported new smaller truck would slot in below the new Ford Ranger, which has gotten pretty large itself. From Automobile: Ford is preparing a compact pickup truck that would fill the space left open when its Brazilian-built, Fiesta-based subcompact Courier pickup was replaced with the … [Read more...] about Is Ford Bringing an Actual Small Truck Back to the U.S.?
