 Aiming to ramp up delivery of its Model 3 cars, electric car maker Tesla has started manufacturing its own car carrier trailers, company CEO Elon Musk has said.

“Tesla’s delivery volume is increasing so much this week as the company attempts to finish the quarter strong. The company is now facing an issue where they are running out of car carriers. As it is often the case with Tesla, they decided to come up with a solution in-house: they are building their own car carriers,” Electrek reported on Monday.

The electric car maker is witnessing production of about 4,000 Model 3 vehicles per week and an increase in delivery volume by a factor of 3-4 in some markets, thus, resulting in logistics becoming a bottleneck.

“Shortages of railway cargo carriers, trucks, trailers and drivers are already common in the industry, but Tesla’s sudden volume increase highlights the issue even more,” the report added.

Google is reportedly testing a new content discovery interface in the Chrome browser’s new tab page called “Explore”, which users can access on Android by enabling an experimental flag.

According to a report by tech website Android Police, the interface is in its early stages, and contains a large number of placeholder sites at the moment — most of them of specific interest to Indian users.

The report suggests that the feature will not, necessarily, be targeted at the Indian market, adding that the websites appearing in this new user interface (UI) have been chosen as examples by whoever is in the process of developing it.

In short, you can think of “Explore” as an extremely broad “channel” browser meant to present websites that could potentially be of interest to you, the report said.

It’s not clear if this will be based on your individual habits (knowing Google, though, that’s almost certainly a yes) or if it will be more broadly tailored to locales and regions than specific users, it added.

To enable the “Explore” interface, users can go to chrome and search for “explore”, and you should see the “Explore websites” flag.

Set it to ‘enabled’ and relaunch Chrome, then open a new tab. The “Explore” interface should then appear on the new tab page. (IANS)
