A Tesla Truckla, Robotic Pizza Delivery, and More Car News This Week

Over here at WIRED Transportation, we often talk to and write about people doing big, ambitious things—changing how their local transportation systems work, inventing new technologies, or researching why the world travels the way it does. But we also talk to the tinkerers, the people working on cool projects on the edges. Sometimes that’s more fun. This week, we learned how a dedicated DIY-er DIY-ed a Tesla pickup truck (a “Truckla”), why a robotics company is suddenly very interested in pizza, and how you might top a 22,000-mile trip around the world on a solar-powered plane.

Plus, we learned why Tesla is working on videogames and which country builds the most reliable cars, according to a new survey. It’s been a week; let’s get you caught up.

The number of shared scooters in Nashville, should the city’s mayor get his way. On Friday, Mayor David Briley requested the Metro Council nix the city’s scooter pilot program because of his concerns relating to “visual clutter, improper riding, parking violations and poor rider education.” A vehicle struck and killed a man riding a scooter in the city in May. Briley says he would consider allowing two of the seven companies that currently operate in the city to return after a new permitting process.
