Comments Off on Two men set new Tesla Model 3 record for $101

Two men reportedly set a new record driving across the United States in a Tesla Model 3. Alex Roy and Daniel Zorrilla traveled from Redondo Beach, California to New York City in 50 hours, 16 minutes, and 32 seconds, setting the new electric Cannonball run record. And they made the trip pretty inexpensively, paying just $100.95 for charging . A Tesla Model 3 can get you across America in a little over two days, it turns out. Roy and Zorrilla drove from the Portofino Inn to the Red Ball garage, racking up a total mileage of 2,860 miles, in just over 50 hours. The prior electric car cross-country record was 55 hours, in a Tesla Model S, set by Roy and two other men in 2016. Related: The Tesla Model 3 is now on the road! Here’s everything we know The duo didn’t exactly make the trip at the easiest time of year in the United States. They left on December 28 and encountered low temperatures throughout the drive – and running the heater would have impacted the electric car’s range and their trip time. Roy tweeted extreme cold negatively impacts the car, and shared pictures of charging the car with snow on the ground. The Drive, which shared news of the run on January 2, said a detailed article would follow shortly. The Verge pointed out the run acted as a quality test, since there have been concerns over early Model 3s, but the car still made it to New York in the cold. Tesla produced 2,425 Model 3s in the 2017 fourth quarter. They’re not quite where they want to be; The Mercury News reported the company wouldn’t reach the target Elon Musk set in November of 5,000 Model 3s a week by the end of March. They’ll now aim for 2,500 of the cars a week, and might hit that 5,000 target by the end of June. Via The Drive , The Mercury News , and The Verge Images via Tesla and Alex Roy on Twitter ( 1 , 2 )

Nations first large-scale mass timber residence hall breaks ground in Arkansas

Cross-laminated timber may finally be having its heyday in the United States. The nation’s first large-scale mass timber residence hall recently broke ground at the University of Arkansas. The Stadium Drive Residence Halls project and living learning setting is the work of a design collaborative led by Leers Weinzapfel Associates , the Boston-based architecture practice behind the nation’s largest cross-laminated timber academic building at the University of Massachusetts. Targeting LEED certification , the Stadium Drive Residence Halls is a new campus gateway project designed by Leers Weinzapfel, Modus Studio , Mackey Mitchell Architects , and OLIN . The 202,027-square-foot cluster of interconnected buildings will offer a range of student housing primarily for sophomores and serve as a vibrant mixed-use destination on the campus’ southern end with retail, dining, classrooms, maker-spaces, performance spaces, gathering areas, offices, and faculty housing. “Crafted with a palette of timber , glass, and metal, it is a bold demonstration of sustainability that signifies a path to potential economic development for Arkansas’s burgeoning timber industry,” says the project’s press release. “Configured to create a dynamic environment that fosters student collaboration and interactive learning focused on architecture, design, and the arts, the project is shaped by the concept of “a cabin in the woods” nestled in a densely planted buffer zone that provides a new university gateway.” Related: Nation’s largest cross-laminated timber academic building is an icon of sustainability Beautiful timber surfaces will be celebrated and left exposed in the interior from the structural wood ceilings to the timber columns. Zinc-toned siding with accent panels of textured copper-toned and white siding complement the exterior timber facade. OLIN’s landscape design will enhance the collegiate experience and show off Northwest Arkansas’ native ecology. + Leers Weinzapfel Associates

Hot on the heels of the launch of New York City’s new bike-sharing program , Chicago officials announced this weekend that the Windy City will kick off a bike-sharing program of its own by the end of June. The program, known as “Divvy,” will ultimately include 4,000 bikes that will be parked at 400 solar-powered hubs spread throughout downtown Chicago and the surrounding neighborhoods. At an event this weekend, transportation officials showed off the three-speed Divvy bikes, which will be painted light blue and feature upright handlebars.
