Tesla Supercharger Station Lego Set Needs Your Support




Can you really say you’ve burst into pop culture if you don’t have a Lego set of your own? Although Lego has offered dozens if not hundreds of automotive-themed sets over the years, not a single one has been a Tesla. That could be changing thanks to an adult Lego fan (commonly referred to as AFOLs) who submitted an amazing Tesla Supercharger Station set of his own creation to the Lego Ideas platform. The set includes three Superchargers, four vehicles (a Model Y, Cybertruck and two Model Ss), two minifigures and a Tesla Store where the vehicles are sold and serviced.

lego ideas This is how regular people get their “my own creations” (MOCs) turned into official sets. Anyone can upload an original set idea to the platform and the community will vote on it. Any set that reaches 10,000 votes is then considered for production in the company’s popular Ideas theme. Included some popular idea sets from the past Medieval blacksmith (21325), tree house (21318) and globe (21332).

It is not easy for a submitted idea to reach production, even if it receives 10,000 votes. You will note that the three examples above are generic objects that do not require a license to be developed and sold by Lego. These types of sets generally have an easier time getting through all the Lego hoops. However, some sets that require licensing will be approved as Lego already has an established relationship with this company. That reminds me of Disney’s Steamboat Willie set (21317), which has since been discontinued. Unfortunately, Lego has no formal relationship with Tesla at that time and even turned down a Cybertruck set which reached 10,000 votes in the past.

The Supercharger Station set was created by Ideas user Airbricks95, whose real name is Aurelien French. After his idea profile Seite, he lives in France and has been building Lego MOCs for 15 years. As you can see from his profile, he is quite prolific and his work is generally of high quality.

However, his Tesla themed set is his most popular, having just passed his Springfield Elementary School from The Simpsons set by 2,685 to 2,614 votes. Yes, the French Tesla set still has a long way to go to reach 10,000 votes, but that kind of exposure should help. In order to vote, you must sign up for a Lego Ideas account. I already had one so my vote is in it.

Charged EVs | Ford reveals electric Explorer to be built in Germany




Americans crave electric SUVs — but automakers dream of a slow and orderly transition to e-mobility. Unfortunately for us Americans, this means that new EV models are usually launched in China and/or Europe first.

ford has unveiled a new all-electric Explorer, designed and built in Germany, as part of a strategy to “reinvent the Ford brand in Europe.”

The electric Explorer will be the first electric vehicle to be built on a large scale at the new Ford Cologne EV Center in Germany. Ford says it will offer an all-electric portfolio of passenger cars in Europe by 2030.

Ford isn’t offering any technical details of the new Explorer at this time, but says it will be available in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants and will be outfitted with the latest electronic goodies and amenities.

The SYNC Move infotainment system has a 15-inch articulating touchscreen that slides up and down to suit the driver (Tesla, note), plus wireless compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is storage space for a laptop and another with a wireless phone charger.

Other bells and whistles include heated front seats and steering wheel, a massaging driver’s seat, individual climate controls, a kick-activated tailgate and multiple driver assistance features.

“Explorer is a precursor to a new generation of exciting Ford electric vehicles. Infused with our American roots but built in Cologne for our customers in Europe, it’s ready for the big adventures and packed with everything our customers need for their everyday drives,” said Martin Sander, general manager, Ford Model e, Europe .

Orders will be accepted “from the end of this year” and prices are expected to start at “less than €45,000”.
