Revving Up Innovation: Tesla Slashes Prices, Land Rover Goes Electric, and Disney’s Autopia Aims for an All-Electric Future

Tesla slashes prices on most models, promoting its Full Self Driving feature. Disney is electrifying a beloved car-themed attraction. Airless tires are emerging as a promising technology. Are in-wheel motors a better option for converting vehicles to electric? Discover these stories and more at Green Car Reports.

Tesla has reduced the price of the Model Y by $5,000 compared to the Model 3 for buyers who qualify for the EV tax credit, following a series of price reductions announced on Saturday. This adjustment could bring the starting price of the base Model Y with rear-wheel drive down to $37,130, before additional state discounts are applied. Additionally, Tesla has lowered the cost of its Full Self Driving feature to $8,000, while discontinuing the widely favored Enhanced Autopilot package, previously priced at $6,000.

Michelin is convinced that airless tires represent the way forward. Although this technology, which may be particularly advantageous for robotaxis, electric vehicles, and other applications, is still in the developmental and prototype phases, the company is also dedicating efforts to other technologies such as eco-friendly materials and tire retreading.

A company based in the U.K., which has acquired Protean and its in-wheel motor technology, recently displayed an electric version of the Land Rover Defender that maintains its original weight. Despite having a limited electric range, this conversion serves as a demonstration of the technology’s potential and possibly signifies broader applications.

Disneyland has officially announced that its Autopia attraction will switch to electric vehicles by 2026. Originally sponsored by an oil company, this children’s ride has operated with gas-powered mini-cars for many years, despite its theme of futuristic transportation.
