The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has taken the view that those absurdly gigantic and distracting central touchscreens on almost 160,000 Teslas are defective - mainly because they randomly just go blank after about five years of ordinary driving.

Fiat Chrysler has merged with PSA Group and the new entity will be called Stellantis. Stellantis will become the fourth largest carmaker on Earth, behind Toyota, Volkswagen and Hyundai - but it will be a challenge for Stellantis to survive because it has no sales in China (world's largest car market) as well as massive over-production capacity and …

Ahh yes, Tesla makes a profit. Technically. Five quarters in a row, now. I said they sold their cars at a loss, which they do. Back in July Tesla hit the milestone of four quarters of consecutive profit, which allowed it to join the S&P 500. But Tesla cannot post a profit from the sales of its cars. If Tesla just made money selling cars, Tesla woul…
