Fisker Ocean Energy Enhance, Mannequin Three at Pikes Peak, Biden Infrastructure and Renewable Power: At the moment’s Automotive Information
Americans want more renewable energy, but there is a strong partisan divide – just as the Biden administration may have to make a bipartisan “compromise” that reportedly removes some of it from an infrastructure plan. Another Tesla Model 3 is set to tackle Pikes Peak. And Fisker says his Ocean EV is getting more power. This and more here at Green Car Reports.
Pikes Peak is no stranger to evasive motorsports. And so it is remarkable that this year this tuner is relying on something purely electric for the famous hill climb instead: a specially modified Tesla Model 3.
Fisker has confirmed a long-term manufacturing agreement with automotive supplier Magna, announcing that its Ocean EV will receive “dramatically more power” and a unique clutch with the introduction of Magna’s platform. We don’t yet know whether that means sailing and efficiency or a special recipe for all-wheel traction.
According to some recent Pew polls, Americans want more renewable energy, especially solar, and see electric vehicles as better for the environment. Although Republican support for both has declined sharply over the past year – in favor of any other option remains unclear.
Will the emphasis on renewable energies be thrown on the line in a non-partisan “compromise” of the infrastructure? It looks more and more likely as some environmental groups and politicians say “no climate, no deal”.
