The journalists of the Drom.ru portal managed to get acquainted with a part of the terms of reference for the promising Kama-2 electric car. Given that Kama electric vehicles are projects backed by people from KamAZ, and KamAZ itself is a technological partner of the Moskvich automobile plant, it can be assumed that if the Kama-2 project is brought to perfection, it may well become on the conveyor ” Moskvich. But what will this car be like?

A range of up to 500 km, doors like the BMW i3 and Italian design.  Details about the Kama-2 electric car, which may be assembled at Moskvich

Kama-2 will be larger than the Kama electric car (in this picture)

“Kama-2” will receive front-wheel drive (according to the documents, it is not planned to produce a car with all-wheel drive), and the traction battery will be placed within the base. This will lower the center of gravity and improve handling, as well as add space in the cabin. The capacity of the traction battery is indicated at 70 kWh, but it is obvious that there will be several options with a smaller and longer range (should be from 300 to 500 km).

The configuration and architecture of the suspension is as follows: McPherson struts at the front and a beam at the rear. A-arms will be installed in front, disc brakes will be installed, and a spare wheel will be placed in the rear overhang.

In terms of dimensions, the serial Kama-2 will be noticeably larger than its conceptual version: the length will increase from 3400 to 3750 mm, and the wheelbase will be “stretched” from 2100 to 2515 mm. In terms of width and height, equal to 1760 and 1615 mm, respectively, the car fits into the class B parameters.

The body will be a metal carrier – the frame-panel structure was abandoned because of its low technology. Also expected are five doors without a B-pillar, like the BMW i3 (i.e. swinging open in different directions), and the author of the design is a certain Italian company, the name of which is still kept secret.

Despite the fact that the parameters are outlined in some detail, it is too early to draw conclusions about the future Kama-2: the concept of an electric car has not been finally formulated, so it is likely that much of its design and appearance will be improved and changed.

Tesla electric cars may be banned in California due to

The California Department of Motor Vehicles has filed a complaint with the Office of Administrative Hearings against Tesla for incorrect advertising of an electric vehicle autonomous driving system.

Tesla electric cars may be banned in California due to incorrect advertising of the autopilot

In a statement, the California Department of Motor Vehicles is requiring Tesla to change the description and positioning of the features mentioned above when advertising and selling electric vehicles in California. In particular, the department asks the company to communicate in promotional materials about the limitations of these options in the same way as they are reported on the official Tesla website. Otherwise, the agency will insist on revoking Tesla’s license to sell cars in the state. It is noted that in this case, the restrictions will not affect the owners of already sold cars.

Tesla has 15 days to defend its rights in court. The company has not yet commented on the situation.

The US is not the first country where Tesla has been targeted by the authorities for misleading ads for autonomous driving. In the summer of 2020, a Munich court for the same reasons banned Elon Musk’s company from using the word “autopilot” in advertising for Tesla electric vehicles.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk announced the release of a new beta version of Tesla Autopilot: FSD Beta 10.69 will be released in the US on August 20.

There are no more details about Geely’s upcoming electric car, but as far as the HarmonyOS Smart Cockpit is concerned, it’s a pretty smart system. So, for example, it automatically turns on the dark theme of the media system design depending on the time of day, and also automatically turns on air recirculation at the entrance to the tunnel. The tight integration of HarmonyOS Smart Cockpit allows you to display the navigation running on your phone anywhere – even on the projection screen, even on the dashboard, even on the central display of the media system.
