Tesla is adding automatic emergency braking to ‘Autopilot a 2.5’

Tesla have revealed a new software update that activates the automatic emergency braking feature in those cars with the latest Autopilot hardware.

The automaker describes its automatic emergency braking (AEB) system:

“Automatic Emergency Braking, a new collision Avoidance Assist feature, is designed to automatically engage the brakes to reduce the impact of an unavoidable frontal collision with another vehicle. The brakes disengage when you press hard on the accelerator pedal, release the brake pedal, or sharply turn the steering wheel.”

While Automatic Emergency Braking can’t prevent all accidents, it will often reduce the force of an impact by applying the brakes automatically if there is no way to avoid the collision.

Electric car charging stations to outnumber service stations in the UK by 2020.

A report from Nissan proposes open electric vehicles charging stations could dwarf the number of petrol stations in the UK by 2020.

Edward Jones, EV chief at Nissan UK, portrayed it as a tipping point for electric vehicles

“As electric vehicle sales take off, the charging infrastructure is keeping pace and paving the way for convenient all-electric driving. Combine that with constant improvements in our battery performance and we believe the tipping point for mass EV uptake is upon us. As with similar breakthrough technologies, the adoption of electric vehicles should follow an ‘S-curve’ of demand. A gradual uptake from early adopters accelerates to a groundswell of consumers buying electric vehicles just as they would any other powertrain.”

The study revealed that there were 8,472 conventional service stations in the UK. This figure is 75% less than the 37,539 recorded 40 years back. It is estimated that this steady decline is only going to continue with the emergence of electric cars.

There are currently 4,100 public electric vehicle charge point locations in the UK. However, this is forecasted to increase to 7,900 charge points– surpassing the number of service stations.

Luxury Airport Transfers

Luxury Airport Transfers in a Tesla Supercar
Ski season is upon us and whilst flights and accommodation may have been booked already, most leave their airport transfers until the last minute.

With most deciding on whether to take their own car and pay for airport parking or book a taxi, has one ever considered luxury airport transfers?

Luxury Airport Tranfers have always been popular among the upper social classes, however this luxury is becoming more affordable for people from all walks of life, and here we give the reasons why.
When you consider that driving to the airport yourself will set you back the cost of using your own fuel plus the cost of airport parking which ranges between £48.00 per car to a whopping £289.00 per car if you park in the premium car park, this is an extortionate amount, even at the lower end.

Then take a standard taxi fare, we called three South East based taxi firms; Vokes, ABC and Star and asked them how much a taxi would cost from Rochester, Kent to London Gatwick airport. The price averaged at around £75 each way.

Now, let’s look at Luxury Airport Transfers. There is a misconception that because the word ‘luxury’ is in the title, that people think the price is going to be extortionate, however this is not necessarily the case.

EVision Supercars, offer prestige and bespoke chauffeur services offering a selection of Pure-EV Tesla sedans. EVision will pick you up from your chosen location and will drive you in style to your chosen airport.

When it comes to Luxury Airport Transfers, EVision will whisk you away in an all-electric sedan Tesla, which will provide pure sophistication, luxury and class – the perfect combination to suit one’s cosmopolitan personality.

You can be assured with EVision that your chauffeur and a beautiful Tesla will be waiting outside your chosen destination for you and your family, friends or colleagues, ready to whisk them away on the perfect vacation.

You will be able to choose any music during your journey and get right in the mood for your skiing holiday.

An EVision chauffeur will wait on you and open the door for you as you emerge from the car right outside the airport doors.

Then upon your return, your carriage will be awaiting your arrival. On your ride home, you will feel the whisper of the tyres beneath you as they caress the road, listen to gentle music, sit back in comfort and have the perfect end to a wonderful holiday.

This you can only get with EVision’s luxury airport transfers.

Prices with EVision start from as little as £78.00 one-way with pick-ups from Medway, Maidstone and Sevenoaks going to Gatwick.

Now why drive yourself or get a taxi when you can be chauffeur driven in a Tesla for less than a 3-course meal for two?
