The Chinese “adapted” the design of the Toyota Alphard for an electric car priced at $ 5,700
The Weiao Boma EV compact electric car has been launched in China. It is available in three versions ranging from $5,700 to $7,460. There are plenty of such cars on the Chinese market, and it would be unlikely that Boma EV would have been noticed if it weren’t for the design: it very much resembles the Toyota Alphard, the gold standard of the minivan segment.
It can be seen that the designers (if you can call them that) diligently copied the grille, headlights, bumper and even the coloring of Alphard mirrors. Perhaps the company did it for a reason: Boma EV is the first electric vehicle under the Weiao brand (the trademark belongs to Hongri Electric Vehicle), and maybe the creators simply wanted to draw more attention to their new product in this way.
Boma EV dimensions are 3517 x 1495 x 1660 mm, wheelbase length – 2495 mm. mm wheelbase. The car is a direct competitor to the Chinese hit in the segment of electric micromobiles Wuling Hongguang Mini EV.
Boma EV single engine power is 40.8 hp, traction battery capacity is 11.9 kWh. The declared power reserve is 130 km, and it takes about 7 hours to fully charge. However, the Boma EV has a more interesting option – with a traction battery with a capacity of 18.5 kWh and a power reserve of about 200 km. True, here all 10 hours are already being charged. The declared maximum speed is 100 km/h.
The Boma EV is equipped with a digital instrument panel with a 7-inch screen and a 9-inch media system screen (there is no 9-inch screen in the basic version), air conditioning, rear parking sensors, tire pressure sensors, ABS and EBD systems, acoustics with 6 speakers ( in the top version). But there is no ESP or airbags.
The first Geely crossover with Meizu Flyme Auto interface, Harman Kardon acoustics and a 92-inch projection screen. Lynk & Co 08 introduced
Geely-owned brand Lynk & Co has unveiled its most advanced crossover, the Lynk & Co 08. This is a rather large, but still mid-size model that has a number of noteworthy features.
Alas, the creators did not reveal all the cards: it is only reported that the power plant here is hybrid with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine and a thermal efficiency of 44.26%. But there should be a lot of power, and the drive will certainly be complete. More details about the technical part of the car will appear in April, and prices will probably be announced at the same time.
The dimensions of the crossover are 4820 x 1915 x 1685 mm, the wheelbase is decent – 2848 mm. Among the features of the exterior design are handles hidden in the door, 21-inch rims and pronounced lighting graphics. It is reported that there will be various lighting effects, and the matrix headlights use 32 LEDs each.
The lack of data on technology is compensated by data on equipment – Geely has also published many photos of the interior, which reflect key points. For example, Lynk & Co 08 is the brand’s first car with a Harman Kardon sound system. And he is the first with a media system with the Meizu Flyme Auto interface (recall, Meizu has recently been owned by Geely).
There are three screens in the cabin of the crossover. Digital dashboard graphics are displayed on a 12.3-inch display, a 15.4-inch screen is installed in the center of the front panel, and the highlight is a huge 92-inch projection screen.
Interestingly, the Ecarx Antora 1000 Pro single-chip system, which seems to have been developed by Meizu itself, is responsible for the operation of the media system, as well as many auxiliary systems and driver assistance systems. It is more powerful than the Qualcomm SA8155P SoC traditionally used in Chinese cars due to the inclusion of two 7-nanometer single-chip systems at once.
Hackers hacked Tesla twice, for which they received 350 thousand dollars and Tesla Model 3
As part of Pwn2Own’s Vancouver-based commercial vulnerability finding event, a French team called Synacktiv managed to hack into Tesla systems twice.
On the first day, Synacktiv successfully performed a TOCTOU (Time-of-check to time-of-use) attack on the Tesla Gateway, and the group was rewarded with a $100,000 cash reward and a Tesla Model 3 car. And the next day hackers broke into the Tesla infotainment system, and received another 250 thousand dollars for this.
The Tesla cybersecurity team is already analyzing the actions of hackers in order to eliminate the vulnerabilities found with a firmware update.
The car brainchild of Changan, Huawei and CATL has a new version available. Presented 313-horsepower crossover Avatr 11 with acceleration to 100 km / h in 6.6 seconds
The Avatr 11 crossover, introduced last year as a collaboration between Changan, Huawei and CATL, has a new, less powerful and more affordable version. Instead of 578 hp and all-wheel drive she has – 313 hp. and rear wheel drive. Modifying the crossover was quite simple: the front electric motor with a capacity of 265 hp was simply removed from the power plant.
At the same time, the cost has decreased: the monodrive Avatr 11 is offered in two versions with a price of 46,600 and 51,000 dollars. The difference in the capacity of the traction battery and, accordingly, the power reserve: 90 kWh and 600 km and 116 kWh and 705 km, respectively.
With dimensions of 4880 x 1970 x 1601 mm and a wheelbase length of 2975 mm, Avatr 11 is a mid-size crossover, but can be either 5- or 4-seater.
The car is luxury, so it is very well equipped: there are 21-inch wheels, three screens in the cabin (the central one with a diagonal of 15.6 inches, as well as the driver and passenger screens with a diagonal of 10.25 inches), a 14-component speaker system with 12-channel amplifier. There are also driver assistance systems that rely on 34 different sensors in their work. True, for all this, in the budget version, for some reason, there is no electric tailgate drive.
