The Ural electric truck with a hybrid power plant was the first of the line being developed. The next one will be made completely electric, without an internal combustion engine.”, — said Anton Akimov. The third model in the new Ural eco-line will be a car with a hydrogen engine.

As for the ready-made and presented hybrid, it is equipped with the latest power plant, consisting of a generator with an engine running on liquefied gas, traction batteries and an electric motor.

If it is not possible to connect to the mains, the batteries can be recharged using the built-in on-board generator. The battery power reserve is 100 km, and the gas-powered generator provides another 400-500 km of autonomous travel.

Earlier it was reported that Ural plans to increase the production of trucks up to 16 thousand units per year in the next two or three years. This is almost double the volume expected in 2022.

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.

In early October, it was reported that the company was finally manufacturing its Semi electric truck and plans to start 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 introduced the world to its new brainchild.

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.” Elon Musk also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes.

Tesla Semi was first introduced in 2017, and the release of the serial version was postponed several times. Tesla offered a slight update to the production version last summer, but the automaker is expected to release more details, including pricing and specification details.
