The folding electric car CT-1, created by the Israeli startup City Transformer, has received permission to appear on public roads. It was shown in September 2021 at the Munich Motor Show, and now it has become known that sales will begin in 2024.

The car will be offered at a price of 16 thousand euros, but when pre-ordering a folding mini-electric car, the owner will cost 3.5 thousand euros cheaper. When applying, a deposit of 150 euros is requested.

The main feature of the car is the change in body width, which makes the CT-1 an excellent choice for residents of large cities with narrow streets and crowded parking lots. It will drive and park where the tiny Smart can’t. In a compact state, the width of the body is 1000 mm, but while driving, the width can increase by almost one and a half times – up to 1480 mm.

Wheels with protective wings extend from the body for greater stability. Despite its compact dimensions, the CT-1 offers a two-seater saloon (seats arranged one by one) with air conditioning and airbags. A small electric motor will allow you to accelerate to 90 km / h. The power reserve will be 180 km. The curb weight is only 590 kg.

Also, the car received only 1.5 thousand structural elements, while in an ordinary passenger car there are more than 10 thousand of them.

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.

Rostec introduced an electric motor for drones

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

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.

NASA has placed SLS rockets on the launch pad for launch as part of the Artemis 1 mission.

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

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.
