Charging electric vehicles quickly would place too much pressure on the electricity grid, Yoshikazu Tanaka, chief engineer of Toyota's hydrogen fuel-cell car Mirai, said, according to Reuters. If a car received enough electricity in 12 minutes to travel 310 miles, it would probably consume enough electricity to power 1,000 houses, the news service quoted Tanaka as saying.

09:08 EDTTMToyota to realign North American manufacturing operations
As reported, Toyota plans to invest in a new plant will be built in Guanajuato, Mexico, to support improved competitiveness in North America. The plant will produce Corolla taking into consideration forecasted steady, mid and long-term growth in North America. Building this plant will be one of Toyota's efforts to realign its North American manufacturing operations and begin a new approach to plant building; featuring new work processes, including Toyota New Global Architecture production engineering innovations, and will be a model for global manufacturing. To more efficiently supply high-quality and attractive vehicles, Toyota will continue regional consolidation of North American production based on vehicle body type and size. In 2019, production of the Corolla will be shifted from the plant in Cambridge Ontario, Canada to the newly opened plant in Mexico and the plant in Blue Springs, Mississippi will continue to produce the Corolla; consolidating compact vehicle production to the Southern U.S. and Mexico. TMMC will then focus its production on mid-sized vehicles of higher value, along with Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky and Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana.
09:06 EDTTMToyota to build new plant in Mexico, expand Chinese joint venture
Toyota announced that it will build a new plant in Mexico and expand its joint venture, Guangzhou Toyota Motor Co., in China. These investments are grounded on its plans to construct production lines that are more competitive, with greatly reduced initial investment, improved efficiency, flexibility, environmental performance and safety, the company said. The new plant in Mexico and the expansion in China will be designed to accelerate innovation by implementing new technologies into real production lines. These "simple and slim" production lines can be easily lengthened or shortened depending on demand, with over-head conveyance devices eliminated, compact equipment installed on top of the plant floors, and paint-booths that are smaller. Toyota had previously suspended construction of new plants in order to improve capacity utilization of existing plants and plan for reduced model change-over and new plant construction investment. Currently, total capacity utilization is more than 90% and the initial portion of new simple and slim plant costs, including structure and equipment, is expected to be approximately 40% lower when compared to 2008. Production at the new plant in Mexico is scheduled to start in 2019 and the investment will be approximately $1B. Production at the new plant in China is to start as needed after completion of new line 3 in 2017 and Toyota plans to invest about Y52.5B.

12:31 EDTTSLAStreet Check: Credit Suisse confidence in Tesla Q1 deliveries warranted
The shares of Tesla are rising after the electric automaker announced Friday that it had delivered 10,030 vehicles last quarter, significantly above the company's guidance of 9,500 and representing a 55% increases versus the same period a year earlier. In a note to investors on April 2, Credit Suisse analyst Dan Galves predicted that Tesla's could exceed its guidance for Q1 sales. The Fly published a summary of Credit Suisse's note on that day, as shown in the link below. WHAT HAPPENED: Preliminary data on March order trends indicated that demand for Tesla's vehicles in Europe was rising significantly, Galves reported on April 2. The addition of all-wheel drive capabilities to Tesla's cars probably made the vehicles more appealing to northern European consumers, the analyst stated, adding that this growth should enable the company's Q1 deliveries to come in above its guidance, partly because the company did not appear to have experienced supply issues last quarter as it had over the previous two years. Galves kept a $290 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. ANALYSTS' OUTLOOK: On April 2, Galves expressed optimism about Tesla's Q2 orders, predicting that a full quarter of all-wheel drive vehicle sales would drive growth in Europe over Q1, while more production weeks and better leasing options should spur strong sales in the U.S. After Tesla announced its Q1 deliveries, research firm Robert W. Baird was upbeat on the stock, continuing to identify the name as its favorite pick. Baird kept a $275 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. Conversely, BofA Merrill Lynch said Tesla's Q1 deliveries of 10,030 vehicles is not impressive and only represents 2% sequential growth. The firm questions Tesla's "disruptive growth" and believes the company will have difficulty reaching its FY15 target of 55K vehicles. Merrill Lynch has an Underperform rating with a $65 price target on Tesla shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors on March 31, Goldman Sachs wrote that the outlook for Tesla's stock had improved in the wake of the 33% decline in its shares since September 2014. Concerns about competition in the electric vehicle market was overblown, while Tesla is likely to disrupt the auto market, according to the firm, which kept a $214 price target and Hold rating on the shares, but added that the stock could exceed that target. The Fly published a summary of Goldman's note on March 31. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Tesla jumped $14.30, or 7.5%, to $205 per share. Reference Link
