BBC Stages BMW Mini E to Scotland, Tesla Takes The Challenge

The BBC is well aware that David is on Brian’s tail. Actually, David appears to be well ahead of Brian, who is somewhere in southern Scotland.

The BBC is currently airing a four-day hit piece about EVs, using a BMW MiniE to drive from London to Edinburgh. The Beeb’s venerable technology correspondent Brian Milligan is on TV, online and tweeting about how onerous, time-consuming and inconvenient EVs are – the worries, the range anxiety, the moldy charging stations that haven’t seen any customers in three years. It focuses exclusively on BMW, and the imagery is pretty pathetic and the series has become quite controversial.

Electric vehicle company Tesla aimed to prove them wrong, with help from UK EV advocate and engineer David Peilow. In a 21st century rendition of “David vs. Goliath” (or more appropriately, David vs. the BBC), the engineer hopped in a Roadster at Tesla’s London store on Wednesday morning and got to Edinburgh that night. Unlike the TV series, David accomplished the trip with no worries, no range anxiety, no drama. This may be the first time that an electric vehicle has driven from London to Edinburgh in a single day.

Upon his arrival last night, the first Tesla owner in Scotland was there to meet David.

Eco Car Talk: Tesla And Toyota

On Thursday afternoon Toyota announced it will invest $50 million in Tesla Motors and will partner with Tesla to manufacture electric vehicles (EVs).

Tesla and Toyota announce partnership, May 20th, 2010.

Additionally, Tesla announced that it will acquire the NUMMI plant in Fremont, California and begin production of its Model S EV in 2012. This is expected to create more than 1,000 green jobs in California.

Tesla expects to produce 20,000 EVs per year. Tesla is a California company, founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley. Their first vehicle, the Tesla Roadster, was the first production automobile to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production EV with a range greater than 200 miles per charge that could go from 0-60 in under four seconds.

Tesla will use the NUMMI plant to begin production of its second generation vehicle, the Model S EV. This 300-mile range, seven-seat SUV will open Tesla Motors to a whole new market of car buyers.

“What we are witnessing today is an historic example of California’s transition to a cleaner, greener and more prosperous future. We challenged auto companies to innovate, and both Tesla and Toyota stepped up in a big way, not only creating vehicles that reduce emissions and appeal to consumers but also boosting economic growth,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “I am thrilled with today’s announcement and can’t wait to see what this partnership brings next.”

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was joined on Thursday afternoon by President and Chief Executive Officer of Toyota Motor Corporation Akio Toyoda, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Tesla Motors Elon Musk and Lieutenant Governor Abel Maldonado to announce the historic new partnership.

The Governor also recently signed legislation, SB 71, to create a sales tax exemption for the purchase of green-tech manufacturing equipment in California. This expanded a sales tax exemption that applied only to Zero Emission Vehicles, which Tesla took advantage of. The expanded exemption, a part of the Governor’s California Jobs Initiative, will not cost the state tax dollars; it will increase revenue by expanding the number of clean technology manufacturing companies with sites in California.
