Tesla Q2 earnings: $717.5 million loss, Model 3 production expected to ramp next quarter

Tesla has released its second-quarter earnings for 2018, revealing a US$717.5 million ($969 million) loss, but there's a bit to suggest things are looking up in Silicon Valley. That loss is close to double the $336.4 million ($454.4 million) it lost during the first quarter of 2018, although total revenue rose from US$2.79 to US$4.0 billion. Tesla says it built 53,339 cars in the second quarter, of which 18,449 were Model 3s.

Tesla Model S, X to gain Model 3-inspired interior - report

Although Tesla is spending most of its time and energy ramping up production of the Model 3, as well as making itself profitable, its flagship models seem likely to get new, probably controversial, interiors. Elektrek has obtained and published a few mockups of proposed designs for the new interior. The publication believes a new cabin will be fitted to Model S and Model X production vehicles starting in 2019.

Mercedes-Benz Vito, Viano and Valente join Takata recall

Mercedes-Benz has added the Vito, Viano and Valente sold between January 2, 2018 and December 31, 2014, to the ever-expanding Takata recall list. As is the case with all Takata-equipped vehicles, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a vehicle with a faulty inflator is involved in a crash, metal fragments can shoot into the cabin, putting passengers at risk of serious injury or death.
