We start this JT Auto with fuel prices, which continue to drop. Since the application of the 15-cent discount by the government on April 1, petrol and diesel have largely fallen back below the 2 euro per liter mark, to return to levels comparable to what they were at the end of January. According to the latest figures from the Ministry of Ecological Transition, the price of diesel was 1.82 euros per liter on average last week, while that of SP95-E10 gasoline was less than 1.75 euros. Prices still high… However, it is possible to find cheaper fuel in most departments, especially at Intermarché, whose prices are among the lowest in France.
It’s not just the prices at the pump that are soaring, Carlos Tavares’ salary is also enough to make you dizzy. The boss of Stellantis (merger between PSA and FCA) should receive compensation of 19.1 million euros for the year 2021. The amount could even exceed 60 million euros in a few years, counting the shares. On the side of Elon Musk, it is not his fortune that is talking about this time…. On the occasion of the inauguration of the Tesla factory in Texas, he confirmed the arrival of the long-awaited Tesla Roadster in 2023. Almost 6 years after its presentation!
In this JT Auto, we will also discuss the Mercedes EQXX, an electric car that managed to complete a journey of more than 1,000 km without stopping to recharge. A great feat even if the vehicle in question is still only at the prototype stage.
