Who Will Win This Drag Race Between The Tesla Model Y,

It’s no secret that electric cars are fast but what’s shocking is just how fast electric motors can make seemingly-everyday cars. They have enabled companies to make cars like the Mustang Mach-E GT, the Genesis GV60, and the Tesla Model Y much faster than they look. In this drag race, we get a chance to see which of these crossovers is the fastest in the straight line.

As demonstrated over on the YouTube channel Sam CarLegion, these three electric cars are direct competitors. The Tesla is the only one with a slight disadvantage though as it isn’t the Performance version. The GV60 and the Mach-E GT are as quick as they get in their family tree.

In terms of how that looks on paper, the Model Y Dual Motor develops 384 hp (286 kW), the GV60 produces 483 (360 kW), and the Mustang packs 480 ponies (357 kW) under its bonnet. One might think that the Tesla has no business being in this race but it’s more than 400 pounds (181 Kg) lighter than either of its competitors.

Much like a Triple Crown hopeful breaking from the gates at the Kentucky Derby, the Mustang Mach-E consistently launches harder and faster than either of its rivals. It’s so quick that it gets out to multiple car length leads in both dig races. That lead doesn’t last though and ultimately it’s the GV60 that reels it in and walks around it by the end. That might not be the case if the GT didn’t limit performance after 80 mph (128 kph).

The Tesla isn’t slow though as it also catches the Ford by the end of race two. When the trio swaps over to a roll race the results

What is the future of Ford Performance? The Ranger Raptor

The Ford Ranger Raptor has leapt onto the scene – literally and figuratively – to help secure the future of Ford Performance – at least in the short-term.

That’s because it has been a rough few years for fans of fast Fords. First the locally made V8 and turbocharged six-cylinder Falcons left, and only recently the Focus and Fiesta ST hot hatch duo were axed from the line-up.

That leaves only the new Ranger Raptor and the soon-to-be-replaced Mustang under the ‘performance’ banner on the company’s website.

The catch for Ford Australia is there’s not yet a clear timeframe on when the seventh-generation Mustang will arrive Down Under. The brand has had to close the order books for the current generation ‘Stang because it cannot guarantee supply to meet the demand, given the new model is coming soon.

The new Mustang will likely go on sale in the USA by the end of 2022 or, more likely, early in 2023, but Australians won’t get them until late next year, if everything with the parts supply issue goes to plan. For reference, the previous generation was first unveiled in December 2013 and didn’t hit Australia until 2016.

A Ford Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide that the company may reopen the order books for the current Mustang, but said it was dependent on securing enough cars to meet any demand.

The new Mustang will likely go on sale in the USA by the end of 2022 or, more likely, early in 2023. The new Mustang will likely go on sale in the USA by the end of 2022 or, more likely, early in 2023.

The good news is, as long as Ford can keep building the current model there appears to be enough demand. According to the latest new car sales figures released covering data up to August, the Mustang is still the best-selling sports car in Australia. It may not be taking new orders,

Centre issues new rules to simplify, streamline Trade

It also said that the application for Trade Certificate and Trade Registration Marks can be made electronically on the Vahan portal, without the need to visit the RTO.

New Delhi, In an endeavour to promote ease of doing business, the Union Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has notified new rules to simplify and streamline the Trade Certificate regime under the Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989.

Due to certain anomalies in the existing rules, the applicability of the Trade Certificate was open to interpretation in many cases, leading to harassment of many business establishments.

Moreover, an application was required to be filed physically at the RTO which was a time-consuming process.

The key provisions of the new rules say that a Trade Certificate will be required only in case of vehicles which are neither registered nor temporarily registered.

Such vehicles can only be in the possession of a dealer/manufacturer/importer of motor vehicles, or a test agency specified in rule 126.

It also said that the application for Trade Certificate and Trade Registration Marks can be made electronically on the Vahan portal, without the need to visit the RTO.

Further, the applicant can apply for multiple types of vehicles in a single application.

The time period for grant or renewal of trade certificate has been fixed at 30 days, wherein applications not disposed within 30 days shall be deemed approved. The validity of the Trade Certificate has been increased from 12 months to 5 years as per the new rules.

Besides, a dealership authorisation certificate (Form 16A) has been introduced to bring about uniformity across dealership authorisations.

The Trade Certificate has been made co-terminus with the dealership authorisation. Display of dealership authorisation certificate in showrooms/godowns has also been mandated.

The date of implementation is proposed with effect from November 1.
