Welcome to AdFeeder’s web Wednesdays, your weekly dose of the latest news and stories that have caught our eye. From technology news to the latest vehicle releases and everything in between, we aim to bring you a quick run down of what you need to know each week.
As we look back over the month of November, it’s been one of record breaking figures and exciting new releases, with only a slight bit of controversy thrown in for good measure!
This week, we look at MINI’s largest vehicle yet and why it might be the best time to invest in an electric vehicle!
Let’s get started!
TikTok release holiday tool kit for businesses
Ever the innovators, TikTok know how important it is for businesses to be active on their platform, not just consumers. With over 800 million active users, the platform has now released a holiday edition of its work book, allowing businesses of all sizes and budgets to make the most out of the app.

Elon Musk becomes world’s second richest person
After a surge in shares for his company Tesla, Elon Musk has now surpassed Bill Gates, stating a net worth of $128 billion! Tesla is already the most valuable car firm in the world, despite producing a fraction of the vehicles of rivals such as Toyota, VW and General Motors. On Tuesday, in a speech in Germany, Mr Musk said it could “make sense” for Tesla to expand in Europe by entering the mass-market segment with a small car.
We look forward to seeing a baby Tesla hitting the streets!
MINI Design tease renders of ‘Urbanaut’
We were a little surprised to see a MINI logo on these renders, but the brand known for being predominantly small has released renders of a large bus looking vehicle designed to be “one space with multiple possibilities.”
According to the designers at MINI, the Vision Urbanaut uses three curated MINI moments – “Chill”, “Wanderlust” and “Vibe” – to present a wide range of possible usage scenarios. Alrighty then.
Electric Vehicle searches surge after announcement
After the 2030 ban on petrol and diesel vehicles was announced, searches for electric vehicles shot up to 1,679 a day, in a statement by Buyacar.co.uk. Year-to-date, new diesel car sales have fallen by 56.3% and petrol car sales have fallen by 40.2%, according to the UK’s car registration reporting body SMMT.
We’ll be bringing you lots more information on these search figures very soon!
