The Day – Man fatally struck by vehicle outside Electric Boat in Groton


Groton — A man was fatally struck by a vehicle outside of Electric Boat about 10 p.m. Tuesday, officials and a family member said.

The man, an employee of the Reactor Plant Contracting Organization based in Groton, was leaving EB at the end of his shift, walking east in a crosswalk from the South Gate when he was struck by a vehicle going south on Eastern Point Road, according to EB President Kevin Graney and the City of Groton Police Department.

He died at the scene, police said.

The driver did not sustain any injuries, police said.

The man’s name was not yet being released by police or the family.

Last month, two EB employees were seriously injured when they were struck by a vehicle in the roundabout near the EB facility in New London. A man and woman both sustained injuries in the one-car accident, which happened on Pequot

Lincoln Cancels Plans for Rivian-Based Electric Vehicle

  • Lincoln has canceled plans for a new EV using startup automaker Rivian’s platform.
  • We speculated that this new model could be called the Mark E and produce up to 700 horsepower.
  • Lincoln says it will eventually build a fully electric vehicle, just not with Rivian’s platform.

    Lincoln announced that it will no longer partner with startup EV automaker Rivian for a new fully electric vehicle, in part because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ford’s luxury brand had planned to release a new EV model riding on Rivian’s skateboard platform but now says it will eventually develop its own EV.

    This cancellation just so happened to occur on the same day that we published our speculation about this new Rivian-based Lincoln model, possibly called the Mark E, that was slated to arrive in 2022 or thereabouts. That timeline will certainly be pushed back now. We’re starting to think that the eventual Lincoln

    Ask the Right Questions About Electric Vehicle Adoption

    With oil prices plummeting, it’s reasonable to expect that some advisors and investors are pondering whether slumping crude bodes ill for electric vehicle adoption and ETFs such as the ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKQ).

    Known in part for being one of the ETFs with the largest weights to Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), ARKQ captures the converging industrial and technology sectors, capitalizing from autonomous vehicles, robotics, 3D printing, and energy storage technologies. That wide mandate helps lever the ARK fund too much more than just self-driving cars, an important trait at a time of rapid robotics advancements.

    With a 13% weight to Tesla, ARKQ is indeed levered to the electric vehicle trend, but investors may not need to fret over lower oil prices affecting the ARK fund. In fact, that question may miss the market altogether.

    The History of the Electric Car

    Introduced more than 100 years ago, electric cars are seeing a rise in popularity today for many of the same reasons they were first popular.

    Whether it’s a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or all-electric, the demand for electric drive vehicles will continue to climb as prices drop and consumers look for ways to save money at the pump. Currently more than 3 percent of new vehicle sales, electric vehicles sales could to grow to nearly 7 percent — or 6.6 million per year — worldwide by 2020, according to a report by Navigant Research.

    With this growing interest in electric vehicles, we are taking a look at where this technology has been and where it’s going. Travel back in time with us as we explore the history of the electric car.

    To know the impact of COVID-19 ON Automotive Electric Water Pump Market

    Request Now

     An automotive electric water pump is activated by a motor & battery and manages a volume flow as  demanded by  the engine. Demand-driven cooling, principally in the cold-start period, averts excess fuel use and leads to a corresponding reduction in emissions. Eliminating reliance on mechanical drive results in installation flexibility in packaging components as required inside the engine compartment. Besides providing standard engine cooling, engine load is substantially minimized and can be controlled by sensors to provide the necessary amount of coolant as per requirement.

    Chinese electric vehicle maker BYD’s profit slumps after subsidy cuts

    BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese electric vehicle maker BYD Co Ltd (002594.SZ), (1211.HK) reported on Tuesday a 42% drop in 2019 profit, saying cuts in government subsidies and emissions rules changes had hit demand in the sector.

    BYD, which is backed by U.S. investor Warren Buffett, said its net profit for 2019 totalled 1.61 billion yuan ($227 million), while its revenue dropped 1.78% to 127.74 billion yuan last year.

    China cut subsidies for new energy vehicles (NEV), which include battery electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, last year, making the final product more costly for carmakers.

    After that NEV sales fell for nine straight months. However, last month China said it would extend subsidies for new energy vehicles and extend NEV’s
