As Elon Musk Abandons the K Tesla, This EV Costs Just ,400

As Elon Musk Abandons the $25K Tesla, This EV Costs Just $4,400

[ad_1] As Elon Musk steps away, yet again, from the idea of a $25,000 Tesla, let’s take this opportunity to zoom out and appreciate what a truly affordable EV can be. For this we need to ignore the Nissan Leaf—currently the cheapest EV in the US at $29,280—and skip over Europe, home to the adorable but flawed $10,000 Citroen Ami, and head to China. Here you’ll find the equally cheap BYD Seagull, a small electric hatchback styled by ex-Lamborghini designer Wolfgang Egger and with a 200-mile range—four times that of the Ami. But what if even that is too expensive? Then allow us to present the Zhidou Rainbow. This is a compact city EV priced from 31,900 yuan before subsidies—that’s just $4,400. For a new electric car. WIRED literally recommends ebikes that cost more that this. The Rainbow has three doors and four seats, and an interior with a 5-inch digital driver display and a 9-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. There’s even a connected smartphone app, charge scheduling, and the promise of over-the-air (OTA) …

Princess Anne’s £25k most special jewel boasts secret royal benefit

[ad_1] Princess Anne’s commitment to sustainability is one of the most impressive and effortless of all the royal family.   At 73, the thrifty Princess Royal still chooses to recycle clothes she first debuted in her twenties, as well as rewearing the late Queen Elizabeth II’s garments and wearing precious jewellery that has been in her collection for decades.  Speaking about her penchant for pre-loved fashion, Princess Anne told PA: “You go through the phase when fashion was very structured and people followed fashion, but you had tailors and dressmakers who absolutely fundamentally made that, but you could also alter it because they had the skills to do so. “Now you’ve got instant fashion which you then throw away, you don’t alter it because it wouldn’t be worthwhile. © GettyThe Princess Royal wears a sapphire engagement ring “So we’ve got to relearn those skills, go back and say ‘actually, we need materials that can do more than one evolution of fashion’.” In a new study by ethical jewellery brand, KIAASH, Princess Anne’s £25,000 engagement ring …

SATs edged out of £25k academy grant as MATs profit

SATs edged out of £25k academy grant as MATs profit

[ad_1] Conversion cash will only be available to schools forming MATs with at least 3 academies Conversion cash will only be available to schools forming MATs with at least 3 academies More from this theme Recent articles Schools choosing to convert to academies will no longer be able to access a £25,000 grant unless they join or form a multi-academy trust. The move comes amid a national push for larger trusts to help protect the most vulnerable schools from financial peril. Schools that choose to convert to an academy – known as academy converters – have been able to get the grant to help pay for associated costs like legal advice and re-branding. However, in an update released this afternoon, officials said: “[The grant] will continue to be paid only to schools approved to join or form a trust as part of a group of three or more schools.” Despite this, special and AP schools “will continue to be eligible to receive it as part of a single-school conversion process”. The cash is handed to …
