Tesla homeowners demonstrate the value of digital power plants in Texas. Due to a defect in the hybrid software package, the Hyundai Elantra Hybrid is recalled. And the 300-mile range of the Audi Q8 E-Tron. This and a lot more information is provided at Green Car Stories.

As promised, Audi is providing the Q8 E-Tron with 300 EPA miles. However, official EPA ratings reveal that these are for the sportier Sportback model. The Audi Q8 E-Tron SUV will go 285 miles, which was made possible by a larger battery and efficiency upgrades from the E-Tron SUV’s forerunner.

2021–2023 Hyundai Elantra Hybrid automobiles may accelerate accidentally due to an opportunity problem. It has resulted in a recall for what the carmaker refers to as a “motor synchronisation fault,” but since the brakes are still functional and the acceleration is mild, Hyundai says the cars are still roadworthy until the recall is resolved.

Additionally, Tesla Powerwall owners in Texas are promoting grid support. In a test project that will first affect two areas near Houston and Dallas, Powerwall entrepreneurs will provide extra power to the grid when needed, creating “virtual power plants” that will eliminate the need for “peaker” facilities during periods of high demand.
