Bolt EUV Redline, Panasonic 4680 pace, hydrogen fuel cells for older semis: Today’s Car News

Tesla reportedly wants Panasonic to pick up the pace on battery development. Truck makers consider rebuilding diesel semis as fuel-cell rigs. And GM gives the Chevy Bolt EUV a sporty look that ties in with its gasoline models. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.

 

GM has revealed a new Redline Edition for the second model year of the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, starting soon. The rest of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV lineup

, which was extensively refreshed and given a deep price cut, carries over with just one new color option—and yes, that’s a shade of red. 

According to the CFO of Panasonic, in a recent update, Tesla is pushing for faster development of its larger 4680 cell format

. The cell supplier has pointed to technical challenges of manufacturing the new cells, and last fall said that making them “requires new techniques.”

And could hydrogen fuel-cell conversions of older diesel semis help clean up long-haul trucking? Two solutions revealed this week emphasize that, with the current wait time well over a year for new truck chassis, it could be the way to clean up company fleets sooner—where hydrogen supply makes sense, that is.
