Tesla cancels plans to go private

Late last week, Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, announced he had withdrawn plans to take the electric car maker private. In a blog post on the company's website, the outspoken boss stated he spent the last few weeks talking to advisors Silver Lake, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, as well as investors large and small. During his discussions with large investors, they told him they had "internal compliance issues that limit how much they can invest in a private company".

Volvo teases ‘360c’ with soundbyte

Volvo has previewed its forthcoming ‘360c’ initiative with a short video posted to its global Facebook page. The video consists of a single synthesised piano note, followed by the text ‘360c’. Volvo has captioned the video; “This could be the sound of your future ride. What do you think it's saying? #360c” Judging by both the caption and Volvo’s interaction with commenters on the video, the teaser likely has something to do with its recently-announced ‘M’ mobility service.
