According to BMW Blog, BMW plans to optimize the 8 Series family by removing the coupe and convertible versions from it. The family will be represented by the only version of the Gran Coupe, which will finally switch to electric traction with the change of generation.

According to preliminary data, the car will sit between the future i5 sedan and the flagship i7, and the next 8 Series (G77) will be based on either the familiar and proven CLAR platform or the new Neue Klasse electrical architecture.

The premiere of the new BMW 8 Series is expected in 2026, while the old CLAR platform will remain on the assembly line until 2030. At the same time, the final rejection of the internal combustion engine may come as a surprise to customers who are used to buying this car only with gasoline and diesel engines.

At the end of September, BMW introduced the new BMW XM hybrid supercrossover, which became the second original model of the series and the first M-hybrid in the history of the German brand.

Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you not to keep your hands on the steering wheel when using autopilot

Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you

The Teslascope team, who understands Tesla software updates, found something interesting in the latest FSD beta update. Tesla vehicles can now detect devices designed to simulate hands on the steering wheel while the autopilot function is in operation. If such devices are detected, the system will disable the autopilot.

In order to use the beta Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) features, Tesla requires drivers to keep their hands on the wheel. That being said, the automaker regularly asks drivers to apply some torque to the wheel in order to continue using autopilot.

This prompted some people to use some tricks. Someone just put a water bottle under the steering wheel rim, and some companies even tried to mass-produce special steering wheel pads that fool the Tesla computer.

Because the technology is still in beta and undeniably dangerous if drivers aren’t in control, Tesla is trying to get drivers to take the wheel regularly to be ready to take over.

Tesla is also increasingly using a cab-facing camera for driver attention monitoring, which can detect when drivers are not looking at the road.

Naturally, it will be integrated into the ecosystem – with its help it will be possible to drive the company’s cars. The new model will be released annually.

William Lee stated that one of the reasons for the release of his phone was that the iPhone is limited in millimeter wave (mmWave) support, but this technology is used in Nio cars. It is expected that the cost of “mobile Nio” will not exceed $ 1,000.
