    VW Builds Europe's Biggest E-Car Plant to Halt Tesla's March

    “We will lead e-mobility out of the niche and make the e-car accessible for millions of people,” Thomas Ulbrich, the VW brand’s head of electric-cars, told reporters in Zwickau Thursday. Electric-vehicle output will get underway in a about a year’s time, he said, with both cars and battery cells made using renewable energy. A smooth changeover from making thousands of combustion-engine vehicles every day will be vital for VW to defend its global leadership among incumbent rivals, while fending off new alternatives to traditional car ownership.

    Europe’s Hottest Building Market Needs Workers to Come Home

    Battling the stiff wind and dizzying heights to form the rebar cage might have been hard enough, but Kocori’s other challenge was to find the dozen or so workers who could actually do it in the first place. “This site is the priority,” said Kocori, the foreman of a sub-contractor at Skanska Property Romania’s 37 million-euro ($42 million) Equilibrium project comprising two 11-story office towers. It’s a juggling act that’s become so prevalent across eastern Europe that a labor shortage now threatens to put the brakes on the continent’s fastest growing construction market with potentially damaging repercussions for economies.

    Stocks mostly rise but Europe weighed down by Brexit discord

    BREXIT: British Prime Minister Theresa May persuaded a majority in her Cabinet to back an agreement to separate from the European Union. The deal would allow Britain to stay in a customs union while a trade treaty is negotiated. It was unclear, however, whether Parliament will approve it and discord soon erupted, with several government officials, including the Brexit minister, resigning. The pound fell 1.4 percent, a wide margin for a developed economy's currency.

    European court says Kremlin critic Navalny was a political prisoner

    The court, based in Strasbourg, said Navalny had been subject to seven such arrests in 2012 and in 2014 and that at least two of those arrests had been designed to suppress political pluralism. "The Court found that there was 'converging contextual evidence' that the authorities were becoming increasingly severe towards Mr Navalny and that his allegation of being a particular target appeared coherent in the context of a general move to bring the opposition under control," it said in a statement. It ordered Russia to pay around 64,000 euros ($72,000) in damages and costs to Navalny, saying his right to liberty, a fair trial and freedom of assembly had been violated.

    The Brexit Deal Is Just Too Good for Europe

    There’s a reason Donald Tusk, the European Council president, hurried on Thursday to call a meeting of EU leaders for November 25 before there was any clarity on whether the deal will survive attacks from all sides in the U.K. As Tusk said, it’s always been the position of the EU that Brexit is a lose-lose proposition and any negotiations can only be about damage control. But the draft agreement isn’t at all bad for Europe. The deal is built to make sure European companies, notably German carmakers, don’t lose an important market and don’t need to revamp their supply chains.

    Everyday RFID tags could help spot food contamination

    You might not need special sensors or old-fashioned inspections to tell whether food has gone bad. If MIT has its way, the tags you already find on your food might do the job. Its researchers have developed a wireless system, RFIQ, that detects potential food contamination based on minute changes in the signals emanating from the RFID tags you often see on containers.

Then the company delivered a profit and positive free cash flow in the third quarter. Tesla recently introduced a mid-range Model 3, lifting consumers' hopes that development on the short-range Model 3 is making progress.

    Europe’s Railway Giants Take a Fast Train to Nowhere

    It’s unhelpful, then, that Alstom’s and Siemens’ rail businesses are flourishing. On Wednesday, Alstom said orders had more than doubled in the six months to September, compared to the same period last year, thanks to contract wins spanning Montreal, Mumbai and Morocco. It’s similar at Siemens AG. Orders at its mobility division jumped by a quarter in the most recent fiscal year, while the operating margin hit 10 percent.
