While Catholicism advocates to end poverty, the Vatican is known for its excessive luxury. The current Pope has been known for not indulging, or at least less so than previous Popes, in the luxurious lifestyle.
He showed his more modest attitude again recently when he reportedly turned down Tesla’s premium sedan, the Model S, in favor of a Nissan LEAF. expand full story

Virtually all automakers are currently working on some form of driverless ride-sharing/taxi services. Whether it’s through investments in existing services, like GM with its acquisition and investment in Cruise Automation and Lyft respectively, or through direct development like Tesla with its Autopilot and ‘Tesla Network‘ programs.
Renault and Nissan are the latest automakers to follow with their own effort in the space. The Alliance announced today a partnership with Transdev to develop a public and on-demand transportation service using a self-driving electric car fleet. expand full story

It looks we will have to wait a little while longer, but maybe not too long since Nissan is also holding an event in Detroit next week. expand full story

When successful, group buys can be a very efficient way into electric vehicle ownership. They are not always successful, however, as demonstrated by a massive attempt with over 2,500 people trying to buy the Nissan LEAF in Montreal and being shut down by the automaker earlier this year.
A new group buy in Texas now has the backing of the Japanese automaker and has managed to secure some truly impressive prices – bringing the price of the electric vehicle down to $11,500 for the base option.
Update: We received reports from people attempting to get the deal and you need to use Nissan’s financing. Some have even reported “bait-and-switch” tactics. Beware going in. expand full story

After collaborating on some development programs over their 18-year alliance, it looks like Renault and Nissan are ready for the most important collaboration yet: a common electric vehicle platform for the next generation Renault ZOE and Nissan LEAF.
While it has some interesting implications for mass production of the platform and lowering the price, you shouldn’t hold your breath since Arnaud Deboeuf, the executive in charge of the Renault-Nissan alliance, warned of a long product cycle and media reports suggest that the next generation – not to be confused with a design refresh – shouldn’t come to market until 2020. expand full story
