Toyota has unveiled a hybrid version of the Toyota Raize compact crossover with an e-Smart Hybrid powertrain.
The car uses a 1.2-liter gasoline engine that has no connection to the wheels: it generates electricity through a generator and recharges the traction battery that feeds the electric motor. The average fuel consumption of the Toyota Raize e-Smart Hybrid is 3.6 l / 100 km, which is a class record. The power plant is 106 hp. with a torque of 170 Nm.
Toyota Raize e-Smart Hybrid has received a smart accelerator pedal, with which you can accelerate and decelerate the car. A similar system is implemented in the new Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Bolt. The braking energy is converted into electricity (regenerative braking system). The drive of the Toyota Raize e-Smart Hybrid is front-wheel drive, while the Toyota Raize petrol crossover can be all-wheel drive.
The hybrid received a richer package, including keyless entry, climate control, a virtual instrument panel, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and an automatic braking system.
The Toyota Raize e-Smart Hybrid is priced at around $ 20,000.

Electric vehicle manufacturer Yadea has released the convenient, lightweight and inexpensive Yadea KS3 electric scooter, which is a smaller version of the more expensive, powerful and heavier Yadea scooters.

The KS3 competes favorably with electric scooters in its price range. It boasts some additional features that will draw extra attention to it. The Yadea KS3 has a soft front suspension that helps smooth bumps. The 8.5 x 2.4 inch tires do not need to be inflated. The minimum wear resistance of the tires is about 5,000 km.

Elon Musk continues to sell Tesla shares. How the course reacts
Tesla founder Elon Musk sold more Tesla shares a week ago than he needed to pay his current tax liabilities. At that time, the amount was $ 8.8 billion, but he continues to sell shares in the company.
He sold another 934,091 shares this week for $ 1.05 billion. Since the beginning of this month, he has sold nearly $ 10 billion worth of shares in the company. Initially, he announced that he would sell 10% of the company’s shares, at that time they were valued at $ 21 billion. That is, he has now sold about half of the planned number of securities.
The sharp drop in Tesla shares happened after a poll in which Elon Musk asked readers if he should sell the company’s shares. Then the rate fell from 1200 to 1000 dollars, but then there was an adjustment, and now the companies give about 116 dollars per share.
Eric Gordon, a professor of business and law at the University of Michigan, previously suggested that Musk expects the stock price to fall: “If you think the stock will rise or stay at its current level, you will not sell additional shares.”
Skoda has announced a sports crossover Afriq
Skoda has officially announced the first details about the Skoda Afriq sports crossover, which is being created by 25 vocational school students in cooperation with Skoda Motorsport.
This is the rally version of the Skoda Kamiq city SUV, which is dedicated to the legendary Dakar Rally in Africa. The name Skoda Afriq was also chosen for another reason: Since the beginning of this year, Skoda has been in charge of all Volkswagen Group activities in North Africa.
The letter “Q” at the end of the car’s name indicates its belonging to the Skoda crossover family – by analogy with the Kodiaq, Karoq, Kamiq and Enyaq models. It has already been determined that the Skoda Afriq has a length of 4362 millimeters and a wheelbase of 2649 millimeters.
What kind of improvements Skoda Afriq will receive in comparison with Skoda Kamiq has not yet been reported. The standard crossover Skoda Kamiq has been produced in Europe since 2019. In the maximum configuration, it has a 1.5-liter petrol engine with a capacity of 150 hp. with. with 250 Nm of torque.
At the 40th Desert Rally in 2018, the Kodiaq became the first Skoda ever to compete in what is arguably the world’s toughest rally. The large Skoda SUV was used as a support vehicle for the Czech Barth Racing team. The unmodified production model easily covered the nearly 10,000-kilometer route through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina – in some sections at an altitude of over 4,500 meters.
