Kia has released the first images of the EV6, the automaker’s first model to be based on the E-GMP platform. Judging by the images, the novelty will be a four-door crossover with smooth contours and stylish LED lighting fixtures.
The EV6 platform was announced late last year. Later, Kia announced plans to release seven electric vehicles on this platform by 2027 and dropped the word Motors in its name.
As you know, Kia is part of the Hyundai Motor Group. The latter also plans to use E-GMP. The benefit of using an off-the-shelf platform is that there is no need to build an EV from an existing fossil-fueled model or start from scratch.
Cars built on E-GMP will have a cruising range of about 500 km, support charging at 400 V and 800 V, allowing the battery to “fill” 80% in just 18 minutes.
In addition to the EV6 demo, Kia also unveiled a new EV naming scheme. In the future, all all-electric models of the automaker will start with the prefix EV, followed by a number corresponding to the position of the car in the model range. The all-electric Kia EV6 will be unveiled on March 15.
Rostec introduced an electric motor for drones
Roselectronics Holding, a member of Rostec, presented a synchronous electric motor for a wide range of applications at the Army-2022 forum. Due to its low weight, efficiency and reliability, the development can be used to create helicopter-type unmanned aerial vehicles.
Among the advantages of a synchronous motor over an asynchronous one are a greater power and efficiency factor, a wider range of speed adjustment, high operational reliability, and better weight and size indicators. The mass of the product is 3 kg, the engine, developed by the Kaluga Electromechanical Plant of the Ruselectronics holding, can be used in helicopter-type drones.
“Our UAVs have proven themselves well in real combat conditions. This technique is also in demand in the civilian market. Now the industry faces a big and important task of import substitution of many components, including power plants. I am sure that the new domestic compact electric motor will help UAV developers in solving this problem.”, – said Oleg Yevtushenko, Executive Director of Rostec.
Synchronous motors are also used in industrial ventilation and air conditioning systems, pneumatic systems and motor vehicles.
Geely electric cars are becoming like Tesla. Geely Geometry M6 and Geometry G6 interior images published
A few days ago, Geely declassified the new models of the proprietary electric car brand – Geometry G6 and Geometry M6, which should replace the current Geometry A and Geometry C. In terms of appearance, the new items, although they differ from the current models, the design continuity is still traceable. Now Geely has presented images of the Geometry G6 and Geometry M6 interiors, and here everything is done completely differently: the minimalism of the interior space makes the interior similar to Tesla electric cars.
The salons of the G6 and M6 are completely identical. The two-spoke steering wheel was replaced with a three-spoke one. The digital instrument cluster has grown in size: instead of a 5-inch screen in the A and C models, it is 10.2 inches. The center console screen has grown from 12.3 inches to 14.6 inches. The climate control unit, central tunnel and door cards have also changed. The selector for switching driving modes is located on the steering column lever. In general, most of the keys have been removed from the front panel. The stretched air ducts and the “emptiness” on the central panel make the interior of the Geely G6 and M6 similar to the interior of a Tesla car.
Alas, there are no new details about the technical part. It is assumed that both models will be equipped with traction batteries with a capacity of 54 kWh (430 km range) and 70 kWh (600 km range). The car will be driven by an electric motor with a capacity of 204 hp.
The Americans installed the most powerful launch vehicle in the world at the moment on the launch pad. SLS is due to make its first flight on August 29
NASA has placed SLS rockets on the launch pad for launch as part of the Artemis 1 mission.
The launch is scheduled for August 29th. The Artemis 1 mission involves testing the Orion spacecraft and launching it to the moon. The mission will last from 39 to 42 days. Among other things, one of the most important moments of the mission will be the return of the ship to Earth. Orion will not just return, but will enter the upper atmosphere twice. The first entry will be partial with a further return to a higher orbit, after which a full re-entry and landing will follow. Thus, NASA will test the ship for strength.
As for the rocket, once launched, the SLS will be the most powerful rocket currently in use. It is capable of launching up to 95 tons of cargo into the reference orbit, and in the future, after modifications, the figure can be increased to 130 tons. It is capable of delivering 27 tons to the moon.
NASA expects that the upcoming launch will attract a huge number of people to the beach near the spaceport. Cocoa Beach city officials estimate that between 100,000 and 200,000 people will come to watch the launch.
