The Korean company Kia has unveiled the Kia Concept EV9 electric crossover at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
As noted by the manufacturer, the Concept EV9 provides the first insights into the next model in the electric vehicle lineup after the successful Kia EV6. It was immediately created as an electric car, without analogues with an internal combustion engine.
The crossover looks massive and angular. According to Kia, it is developed in accordance with the new philosophy of “The unity of opposites”, the design emphasizes the “readiness of the car for travel and adventure.”
The Kia Concept EV9 is based on the modular E-GMP electric vehicle platform. Overall length – 4,930 mm, width – 2,055 mm, height – 1,790 mm, and its wheelbase is 3,100 mm. The power reserve reaches 480 km. Fast charging from a 350 kW station is supported, which allows you to replenish the battery energy reserve from 10% to 80% in 20-30 minutes.
Instead of a traditional grille, the Kia Concept EV9 has a display. When not in use, it is completely covered by the body panel. As the manufacturer promises, the display can arrange a “light show” to greet the driver when turned on, and also serves as a side light while driving.
A solar panel is located in the bonnet duct area. Instead of traditional side mirrors, a monitoring system with new generation video cameras is installed.
Also in the Kia Concept EV9, an interactive display with a diagonal of 27 inches is installed, which is responsible for multimedia capabilities, climate control, functions to increase comfort and convenience.
The electric crossover provides three options for organizing the interior space. Active mode is activated when the Concept EV9 is in motion. In it, the main task is to provide the driver and passengers with an optimal driving experience.
The other two modes are selected when the Concept EV9 is stationary. Pause Mode transforms the space in the salon to be more like a living room. The seats change position so that those in the first and third rows are facing each other. The second row seats fold down into a table.
In Enjoy Mode, the cabin remains in three rows, but all seats rotate 180 degrees. The luggage compartment door opens to allow the driver and passengers to see the surrounding landscape.
Also noteworthy is the unusual retractable steering wheel, 22-inch wheels and a panoramic glass roof.
The “aged” Toyota RAV4 has become more modern. A new version of the Mitsuoka Buddy crossover is presented
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.
The original Buddy body panels are made from polypropylene and molded ABS plastic.
Tesla Semi production has finally begun – almost 5 years after the announcement. Pepsi will receive electric trucks on December 1, 2022
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.
This is Honda’s first electric crossover, and it’s big. The company showed the Prologue model
Honda has fully shown its first electric Prologue crossover, which it nominally announced back in May.
Unfortunately, now we are also not talking about a full announcement, since most of the characteristics remain unknown. But this is due to the fact that the car will hit the market only in 2024, so some of the specifications are probably simply not yet approved.
It is known that Prologue was developed by Honda together with General Motors. It is also known that the car will be larger than the CR-V. The length will be almost 4880 mm, and the wheelbase will be almost 3094 mm.
From the rest, an 11-inch digital instrument panel and the same infotainment screen are reported.
