New Tesla, Nissan Brakes, & Civic Type R
News of a new Tesla model came out of a recent shareholders meeting. Forbes is reporting CEO Elon Musk told shareholders about plans for a small SUV called the Model Y, arriving in 2019. Forbes also reports it will require a new factory, although a location has apparently not been chosen yet.
Nissan has announced that Automatic Emergency Braking will be standard on seven of their most popular 2018 models, including the Rogue, Altima and Murano. They’re projecting that will mean a million vehicles sold in the U.S. will have the safety feature.
If you absolutely can’t wait for a new 306-horsepower Honda Civic Type R, the first one (with VIN 01) is up for auction on BringATrailer.com now through June 15th. The proceeds will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
