Nikola Founders Charged Sodium Ion Cells From CATL, Outlander Plug-In Hybrid: Right now’s Automotive Information

Mitsubishi introduces the next generation Outlander plug-in hybrid. With its sodium ion cells, CATL shows something of the future. And we summarize everything that is accused of Nikola founder Trevor Milton, who is on bail of $ 100 million. This and more here at Green Car Reports.

Trevor Milton, the founder of fuel cell-focused truck maker Nikola Motor Company, was charged yesterday with securities fraud and more. Where is the future of Nikola, who continues to execute on her business plan, albeit at a seemingly slower pace, if the extent of the alleged fraud proves to be true? We looked at everything that is said.

Chinese battery maker CATL unveiled production-bound sodium-ion batteries that can be charged to 80% in 15 minutes at room temperature. The cells could have a bright future for energy storage and the use of electric vehicles that do not require the highest energy density. They can be combined with lithium-ion cells in the same pack, claims CATL.

Mitsubishi introduced the next generation of its Outlander plug-in hybrid and confirmed that it will arrive in the US in the second quarter of 2022. Improvements to the new PHEV include more range, more power, and a seat in the third row of seats – although we keep our fingers crossed that it will continue to offer DC fast charging.

And over at Motor Authority: The ultra-luxury brand Bentley is hoping to increase the attractiveness of its plug-in hybrid Flying Spur Hybrid with a new, tweed-padded “Odyssean Edition”.
