The front end is completely different, with an LED strip visually connecting the headlight unit. The rear lighting has also changed, it uses the “X-style”. The roof is painted black, the wheels are also black – in this version, the Hongguang Mini EV can hardly be called a budget electric car. However, the new model will definitely rise in price. The source says the cost is around 50,000 yuan, which is roughly $8,000.

But the price is affected not so much by changes in design as by a stretched body, a new traction battery and a modified power plant. The dimensions of the new Wuling Hongguang Mini EV are 3061 x 1520 x 1659 mm, the wheelbase is 2010 mm. For comparison, the dimensions and wheelbase of the previous version are 2920 x 1493 x 1621 mm and 1940 mm.

NASA SLS launch vehicle over budget by 6 billion and

NASA’s SLS super-heavy booster is already over budget by $6 billion and six years behind schedule, according to a recent report.

NASA SLS launch vehicle over budget by $6 billion and six years behind schedule

A recent report generated by the NASA Inspector General’s review indicates that NASA’s spending on the Artemis program will reach $93 billion by 2025, including the $23.8 billion already spent on SLS through 2022.

Despite a successful first run earlier this year, the Inspector notes that the project involves additional costs and a further shift in the schedule. Moreover, if the existing problems are not resolved in time, this may jeopardize the entire mission of Artemis.

As for delays, out of the six years mentioned, five years of delay, and at the same time an additional almost $ 2 billion, fell on Northrop Grumman accelerators. The bottom line is that the SLS project initially involved the partial use of old equipment from the days of the Space Shuttle program. Of course, with the necessary upgrades. Northrop Grumman boosters were one such element.

The inspector blames the situation on the cost-plus pricing method and recommends switching to fixed prices. In general, NASA agreed with all eight of the inspector’s recommendations.

Even the base BMW M5 CS accelerates to 100 km / h in 3 seconds, and the boosted version is even more dynamic, although exact data is not given.

In addition to increasing engine power, the specialists reduced the weight of the sedan by 70 kg: they installed new lighter wheels on the car, and replaced the standard seats with similar ones, but with a composite frame instead of a metal one. Other changes include KW adjustable springs and a stainless steel exhaust system with control valves.

Toyota is systematically working on expanding the Crown line – earlier in Japan, a flagship sedan was produced under this designation, and now Crown is a separate brand. It already includes a Crown cross-sedan and an interesting Crown Sport crossover, and now a regular Crown sedan has been declassified in Japan.

There is no data on the motors, but the Crown sedan will be presented in two versions: a conventional hybrid and a hybrid with a hydrogen power plant. It is no coincidence that the sedan is based on the TNGA-L platform, on which the Lexus LS and the Toyota Mirai hydrogen car are built.

If outwardly the Crown sedan looks like a cross-sedan, then inside it is decorated no worse than a Lexus – with natural wood inserts and genuine leather. The space in the rear seats is simply royal. At the push of a button on the sidewall, the front passenger seat can be moved forward to provide even more legroom for the rear passenger.
