There is no doubt that Fiat is one of the most popular brands throughout the history of the automotive industry, but the reality is that it is also on the way to being among electrified vehicles, specifically, of which there are 100 % electrical. A fully committed to the Italian manufacturer that, without making any noise, is distancing greatly of other also historical brands in the race for sustainable mobility. An example of this are its current models.
Fiat has it decided: in 2030, only electric cars
The automotive industry in Europe is undergoing a very important transition process. Sustainable mobility is catching on at a rapid pace and the sector is beginning to settle on three crucial pillars. Electrification, connectivity and automation.
That is why the list of car brands setting a date to complete their transformation into a 100% electric company is growing rapidly. Among this is a Fiat that is positioning itself really well in a modality, that of pure electric cars, which wins integers for the future, but also for the present.
Thus, the Italian, who has already decided that by 2030 It will be a brand that will exclusively sell electrified vehicles, it has done by taking the lead over several brands that were directly competing with them. Likewise, as expressed by its CEO Oliver François, in order to make this transition to electricity a success, it is necessary to make this type of cars zero emissions are affordable for all the public. And that is seen with the models that we have today.
Your best proposals
All in all, and under the umbrella of the Stellantis group (the fourth largest car manufacturer in the world), Fiat is doing a huge job of introducing electrified vehicles. For promote electric mobility, the Italian firm is developing new charging solutions, charging subscription services and advanced energy services.
All while showing us vehicles that, without being too broad a showcase as other brands such as Skoda, Volkswagen or Hyundai, among others, are focusing in a clear direction because they are the great protagonists of the moment, or at least one of them. At the moment the brand only has a 100% electric model in its range that joins others with hybrid technology.
The Fiat 500e is Fiat’s big bet when it comes to electric cars, taking advantage of its most iconic model: the 500. Aesthetically, it has no major changes, but its guts now belong to another world. Thus, in what includes its autonomy, this is determined by two lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 42 kWh, with which it will be able to offer 320 km routes with a single charge (here its technical data sheet).
The one in charge of propelling this small model is an electric motor of 87 kW (the equivalent of 118 hp). Given its size and weight, it is more than enough to fly from traffic light to traffic light. Thanks to the instant torque, its acceleration can be surprising: it only takes 3.1 seconds to go from 0 to 50 km / h, so in the city it will be respected.
Fiat 500 c EV
On the Fiat 500 there is this convertible version or Cabrio, the Fiat 500C. It already existed at launch in 2008, and was renewed in 2016 alongside the three-door body version of the model. With new front and rear optics, and slight changes to the bumpers, but maintaining the same development and identical dimensions.
This one of denomination ‘C’ is also electrical, although properly said it is the convertible version from the ‘e’ seen before, an urban compact with one of the most iconic and timeless designs in history. Its dimensions are 3.54 meters long, 1.62 meters wide and 1.48 meters high. It is a perfect car to move around the city thanks to its agility and its contained dimensions. It also has an autonomy of 320 km and an 87 kW (118 hp) engine.
Fiat 500 hybrid
Getting into the hybrid proposals before the electric ones, this is the standard Fiat 500 with a gasoline engine to which an electric motor and battery system has been added to combine its motorization. In this sense, it is not a total hybridization of the vehicle’s propulsion system, but what is called light hybridization (mild-hybrid).
What Fiat has done has been to change the 1.2 Fire 69 HP 4-cylinder engine of the conventional gasoline versions for another engine of the Firefly family, somewhat lighter, 1 liter, 3-cylinder and 70 hp power, to which a BSG electric motor has been directly associated, or what is the same, a starter generator integrated in the belt, 12 V. What it does is help the system in the starts, support it with about 5 CV extra power if needed. However, thanks to current regulations, this light hybridization means that this Fiat 500 hybrid can show off the ECO label of the DGT.
Fiat Panda hybrid
This is the Fiat Panda, now with a hybrid motorization, which makes it the last to arrive in this sustainable family of Italians. As such, it is the Fiat Panda of a lifetime, but now entering new engines with the house’s ‘Red’ specification or range, which are the brand’s special versions.
It does this by equipping the electrified motorization that we have already seen in the previous 500 hybrid. Or what is the same; In it is a 1.0-liter Firefly three-cylinder gasoline engine that develops a power 70 hp and 92 Nm of maximum torque. An electrified block with light hybrid technology (MHEV) 12 volt and is associated with a six-speed manual gearbox and a front-wheel drive system.
Apple Declares 2013 and 2014 iMacs Obsolete and Watch Series 2 Smartwatches ‘Vintage’
Apple has added three models of iMacs to its list of obsolete products: a 21.5-inch screen from 2013, a 21.5-inch screen from 2014, and a 27-inch Retina 5K screen also from 2014.
Apple typically deprecates products seven years after they were released, so it’s no surprise that the 2013 and 2014 iMacs are on the list.
As for smart watches Apple Watch Series 2, they are recognized as “vintage”. This category usually includes devices that have been released for five years. There may be problems with the official repair of the aforementioned iMacs.
There are almost 1 billion 5G users. Ericsson report shows that operators often ask for more money for such tariffs.
According to a report by Ericsson cited by The Verge, by the end of this year, the number of 5G subscribers in the world will reach 1 billion.
Of course, this is far from the performance of 4G networks, which are now used by about 5 billion people, but still this is a fairly significant part of the market.
Of course, 5G adoption is far from uneven. In North America, about 35% of subscribers will use 5G networks by the end of this year.
At the same time, the report indicates that operators often ask for more money for the higher speeds offered by new networks. Dividing into corresponding tariffs is popular among operators in Western Europe, but overall, 25% of operators worldwide charge extra for 5G. And the average markup is 40%.
Ericsson believes that, unfortunately, this trend will continue for several more years, as operators need to compensate for the costs of developing a new network.
Is Apple Helping the Chinese Government Fight Protests? The company cut the AirDrop function in the Middle Kingdom
The history of protests in China is overgrown with new interesting details related to IT companies.
Just weeks before the protests began, Apple reportedly made a major change to how AirDrop works, and only in China. After updating to iOS 16.1.1, AirDrop in the mode of receiving messages from everyone became possible only for 10 minutes, after which AirDrop simply turns off. In normal mode, AirDrop has no time limit, as there is none now and all over the world outside of China.
The fact is that AirDrop is one of the ways protesters communicate, and not only in China. AirDrop works locally in smartphone-to-smartphone mode, without relying on external networks, so it cannot simply be blocked or read data. But in this case, for some reason, Apple decided to seriously change the function, although it did not turn it off completely.
The CNBC resource also notes that the corresponding update was released a month after Chinese President Xi Jinping was re-elected for a third term.
Recall that Huawei smartphones have been noticed that they automatically delete videos that depict events related to protests in China.
