Mumbai, Dec 13 : Automobile major Tata Motors on Thursday said it will increase prices of its entire passenger vehicles range by up to Rs 40,000 from January 1, 2019.

According to the company, the hike in price from next year is due to rising input costs and increase in fuel prices.

“The changing market conditions, rising input costs and various external economic factors have compelled us to consider this price increase,” said Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors.

“We are optimistic on maintaining our growth trajectory in the coming year on the back of our robust portfolio consisting of segment-leading products like Tiago, Hexa, Tigor and the Nexon. Early 2019 will also mark the entrance of our most awaited SUV — the Harrier.”

Car crashes deadlier than coronavirus: Elon Musk to SpaceX staff

It’s not that he did not explain why he thought so. In replies to a Twitter user’s question, he said that both the virality of COVID-19 and fatality rate are overstated.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk

San Francisco, March 14 : Amid the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus which has killed nearly 5,000 people in the world, SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears to be dancing to his own tune, underplaying the danger from the threat time and again.

In a memo to SpaceX employees on Friday, Musk said that they were far less likely to die from COVID-19 than car crashes, BuzzFeed News reported.

Musk added in the email that he does not think COVID-19 is “within the top 100 health risks in the United States”.

In the US, over 1,600 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus have been reported, while more than 40 people have died due to the disease caused by the virus.

According to a report in The New York Times that cited an estimate by health officials, if the spread of the novel coronavirus is not contained soon, between 160 million and 214 million Americans may become infected in the worst case scenario.

This is not the first time Musk has underplayed the danger from COVID-19.

In a tweet last week he said that “the coronavirus panic is dumb.”

It’s not that he did not explain why he thought so. In replies to a Twitter user’s question, he said that both the virality of COVID-19 and fatality rate are overstated.

“Virality of C19 is overstated due to conflating diagnosis date with contraction date & over-extrapolating exponential growth, which is never what happens in reality. Keep extrapolating & virus will exceed mass of known universe,” the tech billionaire reasoned.

“Fatality rate also greatly overstated. Because there are so few test kits, those who die with respiratory symptoms are tested for C19, but those with minor symptoms are usually not. Prevalence of coronaviruses & other colds in general population is very high,” Musk said.

However, in view of the global spread of the coronavirus, the World Health Organization has already declared it a pandemic.

Globally, coronavirus has infected over 132,500 people in 123 countries.

San Francisco, Feb 18 : Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday took a jibe at Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates after the world’s second richest man declared he has bought his first EV — Porsche Taycan.

Gates told a noted YouTube tech reviewer Marques Brownlee in an interview that he purchased his first-ever EV Porsche Taycan, calling the vehicle “very, very cool”.

“My conversations with Gates have been underwhelming tbh (to be honest),” Musk tweeted to a user.

The initial EV Porsche Taycan Turbo S model starts at $185,000 while the entry-level Tesla Model 3 starts from $35,000.

In the interview, Brownlee asked Gates about his thoughts on Tesla’s dominance in the electric vehicle market.

Gates acknowledged that Tesla is the cream of the crop when it comes to electric cars, adding that lots of manufacturers are moving to produce electric vehicles because Tesla’s appeal has been increased over the past few years.

“Tesla, if you had to name one company, that’s helped drive that, it’s them,” said Gates.

Musk has been tweeting his thoughts about tech honchos.

He recently questioned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s understanding of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and called Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos a “copycat”.

Gates recently commissioned a $644 million hydrogen-powered superyacht. The plans of buying the superyacht were unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in December last year.
