According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing dated March 24th, Tencent Holdings Ltd. has purchased a five percent stake in the company8,167,544 shares to be exact. According to TechCrunch , the deal was arranged a week earlier, and Tencent paid $1.7 billion for the shares. The cash infusion will no doubt be welcome at Tesla. The company's acquisition of Solar City came with a large amount of debt, and it continues to lose money selling Model S and Model X electric vehicles—its two profitable quarters have been thanks to the sale of emissions credits to other companies. But it has bulging order books for the Model 3, and it told investors in February that production for that car begins in July.

The move will undo the Clean Power Plan which required States to slash carbon emissions. More to come including the latest from Holyrood. Now, we'll catch up with the sports news. Will.

the environment should be about clean water and clean air. It does put in question or call into question America's commitments under the Paris climate change treaty. That had some huge cuts in carbon and CO2 emissions that America effectively signed up to. From memory, about 26% from 2000 levels by the middle -- 2005 levels by the middle of the next decade

evo Comment ‘Within the first few hundred metres, the Leon feels more potent than the Civic, pulling with an intensity I’ve never experienced in any other front-driven car. The Leon has two more aces to play. As the corners come thick and fast along this dark, cresting road, it occurs to me that braking in a Sub8 is more-or-less optional – but when you do eventually have to brake, you’ll stand the car on its nose so abruptly that the chasing pack will need to be paying attention.’ Dan Prosser, road test editor, evo 216 ( evo Car of the year 2015) MPG and running costs Gone are the days when running a car that sprints to 62mph in under six seconds meant MPG figures in the teensofficially, SEAT’s hottest hatchback will cover 42.2 miles for every gallon of unleaded. CO2 emissions are correspondingly low, at 156g/km. These figures alter slightly depending on the model - manuals are a little less efficient than DSGs, and heavier estates aren't quite as frugal as the hatchbacks.

Lexus GS300h: set to be hit by a 2475% tax increase over three years When new rates come into force this weekend, some vehicles will be hit with rates 25 times higher than before The introduction of new car tax rates from 1 April will send the annual running costs of some cars skywards, a study by WhatCar? has found. Autocar’s sister title revealed that yearly road tax could surge by 25 times for some models, with conventional hybrids like the Lexus GS300h among the worst hit. Motorists who purchase that model after Saturday will have to pay £1030 tax over the next three years, which is a significant £990 more than they would have paid with the outgoing tax system – an increase of 2475%. The new legislation says that only zero-emissions cars costing less than £40,000 will be tax exempt, and so low CO2 models like the GS300h, Mercedes-Benz C250d and Audi A6 3.

Practically zero Hill Democrats will agree. The political: it’s just more poison in the well for Trump’s relationship with Democrats. THE REAL DEADLINE -- 33 DAYS until the government shuts down. The House -- where most of Trump’s problems exist -- has just 11 MORE DAYS in session before the shutdown. AND MORE … “Trump moves decisively to wipe out Obama’s climate-change record,” by WaPo’s Juliet Eilperin and Brady Dennis: “President Trump will take the most significant step yet in obliterating his predecessor’s environmental record Tuesday, instructing federal regulators to rewrite key rules curbing U.S. carbon emissions. The sweeping executive order also seeks to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing and remove the requirement that federal officials consider the impact of climate change when making decisions. ... The order is silent on whether the United States should withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate agreement, under which it has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions between 26 and 28 percent by 2025 compared to 2005 levels, because the administration remains divided on that question.

S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue said in a statement welcoming the order. But Trump is not expected to tell EPA to reconsider the underlying policy that lets it regulate carbon emissions — the 2009endangerment finding” in which it declared that greenhouse gas pollution threatens human health and welfare. Nor will he address whether the U.S. will stay in the 2015 Paris climate accord. “We’re happy with it so far and we look forward to the right decisions on Paris and endangerment, but I think those are still to be made and they’re a ways down the road,” said Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the former leader of Trump’s EPA transition team. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt went on national TV earlier this month to declare that carbon dioxide is not “a primary contributor to the global warming that we see,” a statement that is at odds with the conclusions of the vast majority of climate scientists, including those at his own agency.

The engine is based on the same 'race-proven' architecture found in Ford's IMSA Daytona Prototype cars and the GT racecars, where it was responsible for three race wins in its first IMSA Tudor United Sportscar Championship season (in 2014). Watch - 2016 Ford GT engine running on video The new unit represents a drastic change compared to the previous GT, which was powered by a supercharged 5.4-litre V8 producing 550bhp and 500lb ft of torque. Though some had labelled it as almost blasphemous to suggest the next GT will utilise anything less than eight-cylinders, the new car's shift to a smaller capacity, forced induction unit was almost inevitable given increasing global pressure to lower emissions. How successful that has been is open to debate: the GT's recently-announced EPA fuel efficiency ratings suggest it's even less frugal than its V8 predecessor.
