Tesla’s stock price has soared $459.74 (£344.19 / €386.85) since the beginning of the year and that has made a number of people extremely wealthy.

One of them was Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who is now reportedly the second wealthiest person in the world.

According to Bloomberg, Musk has a net worth of $127.9 (£95.8 / €107.6) billion. That’s an increase of $100.3 (£75.1 / €84.4) billion in less than a year.

The publication went on to say Musk has passed Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to become the second richest person in the world. That’s an impressive accomplishment, but Amazon founder Jeff Bezos remains the wealthiest person in the world and Gates would be ahead of Musk if he hadn’t donated more than $27 (£20.2 / €22.7) billion to charity.

Bloomberg says roughly three-quarters of Musk’s net worth comes from his stake in Tesla, which has market cap of over $500 (£374.4 / €420.9) billion.  The latter is more than the combined market cap of Ford, GM and Daimler. Musk also has a stake in SpaceX, but that apparently doesn’t add nearly as much to his net worth as Tesla.

Tesla’s stock gained 6.6% on Monday and 5.1% on Tuesday to $548.53 per share having risen over 523% so far this year.

Of course, there’s been plenty of debate over whether or not Tesla’s stratospheric stock price has any basis in reality. Most people would likely say no as Tesla is a relatively small automaker which produced 145,036 vehicles in the third quarter and delivered 139,300 units in the same period. For comparison, GM sold 765,001 vehicles in the North America in the third quarter and 1,793,311 globally.


Ram has unveiled the fourth installment of the 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ edition, which sports a maritime land force-inspired theme.

Part of the company’s limited lineup that celebrates America’s five land, sea and air-based forces, the latest addition will launch in Tank and Flame Red exterior colors, each limited to 1,000 units.

Like the rest of the special edition range, it features the U.S. flag and ‘Built to Serve’ decals on the rear quarter panels, body-colored wheel arches and bespoke 20-inch aluminum wheels. It also has a black grille, bumpers, side steps, 4-inch exhaust tips and dark bezel lighting.

In addition to the black interior with Medium Greystone accent stitching, which is exclusive to this fourth installment, the 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ has front seatback panels with special webbing to attach different equipment or pouches and Velcro panels on the front seats so that owners can apply their own patches to further personalize their truck.

“These ‘Built to Serve’ models offer a unique way to honor all those who serve or have served in the United States armed forces with distinction,” said Ram chief Mike Koval Jr. “Whether civilian or military, Ram truck owners are very familiar with this adage as it’s something we strive to build into every truck and van we produce.”

Available on all body styles regardless of the engine, the Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ is ready to venture off the beaten path with heavy duty shocks on all four corners, an electronic-locking rear axle, tow hooks, all-terrain tires, hill-descent control and skid plates protecting the front suspension, steering gear, fuel tank and transfer case.

Order books will open next month and production will commence early next year at the Sterling Heights plant, while the first units will arrive in showrooms in the first quarter of 2021.

▲前後座椅相連之機能目前已不多見,原廠稱之為「提神模式」而非車床模式!切記、切記!

泰國於11月24日發表全新級距City五門掀背車,導入台灣的機率相當高,畢竟Honda Taiwan相當需要這樣車款,然而此車若真的引進台灣,會取代Fit嗎?基本上不會,因為此4.0米小車都會適應性極強,加上魔術空間實用性極佳,不如保留並下殺65萬元以下市場,填補原本City四門房車的價格空缺,順便挫挫對手的銳氣,相信還是會有穩定的市場。

至於全新級距City Hatchback,因為是採用現行款City四門與Fit相同的技術平台所打造,所以空間機能囊括City與Fit所有優勢,那就是「Ultra Seat」,多數人最熟悉的獨家機能莫過於後座椅面上掀,可以創造相當大的後座載物機能,加上後門開啟角度可以接近90度!足以用來裝載腳踏車、電視機、盆栽、中型白板…等又高又大的物件。

但許多人可能不知道Ultra Seat包含前後座合併的「車床」機能!我不是要教你壞,只是要告訴您如何露營睡野外,如何車震問我真的不知道,因為個人還是習慣搭帳棚舒適又自在,只是防水要做好否則下大雨就是一場災難!

▲甫於11月24日於泰國發表的全新級距City Hatchback五門掀背車

▲專門置放狹長高聳物件的TALL模式

▲從側面就可以輕易瞭解TALL模式如何操作與運作

首先來聊聊「後座椅面上掀」這個機能,為何其它車廠辦不到?首先「皮卡」這種半商用車型除外,因為許多Pick-up都辦得到。至於一般轎車或休旅車,關鍵報告在於後座椅面下方乃是油箱的位置,就算後座椅面可以上掀甚至快速拆卸,也無法挪出充裕的可用空間,事實上CR-V也不具備這樣的設計,目前就是應用在Fit、City、HR-V。

至於City Hatchback何德何能得以創造出Ultra Seat這樣的機能設計?原來Honda將油箱搬到前座下方去!當然這牽扯到車體結構設計,一般車款無法這樣挪移,想要模仿並不容易。不過此設計當然也有壞處,比如說全新級距City Hatchback的油箱容量只有偏低的40公升,幸好台灣加油站密度夠高,此問題尚不會構成太大障礙。

不可否認,許多單車族都很喜歡這樣的設計,因為方便,拆前輪就可以塞入後座,比折疊後座椅背塞行李廂更方便、更好搬運。

那前座連後座的「車床」機能又如何?嗯…應該說是「提神」或「充電」機能才對!說真的,操作上並不方便,如果您真的想用此機能來個車震,光是折收完畢,應該就六點半「永垂不朽」了吧!

操作上有多麻煩呢?首先要將雙前座椅面都推到最前方,然後拆掉二個前座頭枕,再將雙前座椅背向後傾斜至最大角度,然後要稍微用力才能順利與後座椅面相接合,如果是夏天操作鐵定會流點汗,而且要站在車外比較容易操作,如果被路人看到,豈不是就知道「你要搞車震」準備看好戲了嗎?此外「提神模式」的平整度其實不好,車震尚可,若是要睡一整晚,建議還是不要,保證腰酸背痛,連開車都會覺得疲憊不堪!

如果堅持要用提神模式來個車震,有解決方式,那就是折單邊就好,空間絕對夠用,還可以節省一半的折收時間與力氣,而且可以在車室內操作,完全不需要開門這個動作,除非您或另一半很胖很高除外!如果真是如此,還是建議去找Motel不要省這個錢折磨自己!至於該折收駕駛座還是副手座?當然是副手座優先,如果折收駕駛座,車震到一半「萬一不小心壓到或踢到方向盤上的喇叭」多尷尬、多解High啊!

因為不是非常平整與實用,再加上操作麻煩,所以關於Ultra Seat的提神模式其實很少使用與討論,畢竟Fit、HR-V、City Hatchback都不是Ford F150,不能選配電動車床!也沒有那種平整度!

▲Ultra Seat還有專門置放長形物件的LONG模式

如果露營時真的要睡車上,遮風、避雨、溫暖、省帳棚錢、還可以「防洩洪」大水之災!那麼該如何正確使用Ultra Seat?當然是折收後座椅背最實際,因為Ultra Seat另一個特異功能,就是折收後椅背可以得到一個完全平整的空間,非常適合當床墊,只要再買個充氣睡墊就非常舒適,不只可以在野外露營使用,如不幸和老婆大吵一架被趕出家門被迫睡車上,至少還有個舒適的小天地可以過夜,總比趴睡在7-11的餐桌上、按時被店員「關切」來得好吧!

基於厲害的Ultra Seat機能,City Hatchback雖然是五門掀背車,但是要當休旅車使用並不過份,更何況City Hatchback的行李廂容積比Fit大多了!
