The Japanese company Mitsuoka has introduced an updated retro crossover Buddy, which is an “aged” version of the popular Toyota RAV4 in the style of old American SUVs from the 70s.

According to Drom.ru, the changes include enlarged screens of the digital instrument panel and multimedia complex (the exact diagonals are not reported), as well as a full-time DVR, which will be installed from the factory.

Mitsuoka Buddy is offered in two versions to choose from. Buyers are available a pure gasoline version with a 2.0-liter engine and a hybrid with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor.

Production of the “aged” Toyota RAV4 began in June last year. The car differs from the Toyota crossover in its original body design. The front fenders, hood and bumper are made in the style of the Chevrolet K5 Blazer of the 1970-1980s. The headlights from the RAV4 were replaced with universal “rectangles”, the radiator grille is made in the form of a nickel-plated “grill”, and the original bumper with a chrome trim and vertical lights from Cadillac integrated through the adapter is installed at the back.

Gordon Freeman has become the hero of a new game

Developer PinkyDev has revealed that the game, codenamed Codename: Loop, which is a spin-off of the Half-Life shooter, has received permission from Valve to be placed on Steam in the near future.

The main protagonist of Codename: Loop is the protagonist of the Half-Life series, Gordon Freeman. The project will combine an isometric shooter and roguelike elements. The project is expected to be released this year.

An important point of Codename: Loop is its compatibility with the original Half-Life BSP file format. This allows Codename: Loop to take advantage of the GoldSrc engine while maintaining the look and feel of Half-Life in the Unity engine. Codename: Loop also features third-person views and a classic first-person view for fans who want to create FPS-style levels. BSP compatibility enhances the potential of Codename: Loop to support the modding community, as level designers can use existing tools to create maps and campaigns in Codename: Loop.

Keeping the classic spirit of Half-Life alive is a top priority for PinkyDev, who wrote in the project’s latest update: “I will do my best to support the Steam Workshop so everyone can share campaigns and levels and support this game forever.”

Tesla Semi production has finally begun almost 5 years

According to CEO Elon Musk’s announcement, Tesla has begun production of its Semi electric truck and plans to begin shipping it to Pepsi as early as December 1, 2022.

The soft drink company ordered 100 electric vehicles in December 2017, just a month after Tesla first unveiled its new creation to the world.

Tesla promises that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h mph in 20 seconds even when “fully loaded” and maintain “the same speed as on the highway, even on steep climbs.” It also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes. The power reserve, depending on the version, will be from 480 to 800 km. In Musk’s own words, “driving a car is a lot of fun.”

Until 2022, there was little news about the car. In May, Tesla began accepting orders and taking a $20,000 deposit, and in August, Musk said deliveries of the 500-mile-range version of the truck would begin this year.

Tesla has pushed back the release dates of its vehicles many times. The Cybertruck pickup has been delayed several times, with Musk saying deliveries will now begin in 2023. The second-generation Tesla roadster that was announced alongside the Semi was originally expected in 2020 but has yet to be released.
