In this week’s top stories: Tesla Model Y renders, Model 3 production & delivery process, Google’s Project Sunroof Data, and EV news from Lucid Motors, BMW, and Volvo.

We kick things off this week with some unofficial Tesla Model Y renders that we think could be some of the most realistic yet. Musk talks Tesla Model 3 production as well as the 5 minute delivery process, paperwork & instruction videos. We get a rare look inside Tesla Gigafactory. And Tesla’s ‘Vision’ and Autopilot chip efforts are validated by Intel’s $15 billion acquisition of Mobileye.

Lucid Motors announces a $60,000 base price for its all-electric luxury sedan. A BMW exec casts doubts on Tesla’s ability to produce Model 3 in volume at $35,000. Volvo aggressively pushes for its first long-range electric car to start between $35,000 and $40,000. And Google releases its Project Sunroof Data: 79% of US rooftops analyzed are viable for solar – is yours?
