After the appearance of the first spy photos of the flagship crossover Chery Tiggo 9, renders were created to more accurately examine the expected new product.
The first information about Chery Tiggo 9 appeared last year, the car passes under the model number T26. It will get premium retractable door handles and a new design.
According to Chery’s internal documentation, the T26 will be built on the T2X platform, and its dimensions will only slightly exceed the Tiggo 8 Pro. The exact dimensions will be 4780 x 1920 x 1700 mm with a wheelbase of 2800 mm. Chery Tiggo 9 will be available in 5-, 6- and 7-seater versions. It will be equipped with 1.6- or 2-liter turbo engines, as well as a 7-speed “robot”. The drive can be front or full.
Chery is also preparing a crossover codenamed T26J, which will be a sports modification of the Tiggo 9 with a 5-seater saloon, a 2-liter engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The front of the Chery Tiggo 9 will receive a frameless grille reminiscent of Omoda 5. The headlights are distinguished by LED running lights and a block of high and low beam located under them. Chery Tiggo 9 turn signals are represented by horizontal stripes that are located under the headlights. Fog lights and an adaptive cruise control radar can be seen at the bottom of the front bumper.
At the rear, Chery Tiggo 9 has a single block of lights. Stoplights and turn signals are located in the horizontal elements below them.
The renders were created by the same insider who first published images of Chery Arrizo 8, which ended up being very close to reality.
Tesla Optimus humanoid robot will cost less than $20,000. Specifications are already known
As we already reported, yesterday Elon Musk presented a fresh prototype of the Optimus humanoid robot, details of which were published by Slashgear.
The robot is able to move all fingers independently, and there are sensors in the fingers for feedback and control of the grip force. The robot will be able to keep track of what it is holding. The arms have 27 degrees of freedom, the body – more than 200. At the same time, the robot weighs about 73 kg and consumes 100 watts in a sitting position and 500 watts when walking.
The heart of Optimus is a single-chip system developed by Tesla. He received Wi-Fi and LTE modules for a permanent connection to the Web. The 2.4 kWh battery is also designed by Tesla and is built into the Optimus’ chest.
The charge is expected to last a full day, though it’s unclear at this stage how much work the Optimus can handle. Elon Musk acknowledged that Tesla still has a lot of work to do to improve and refine the Optimus.
However, the Tesla CEO is enthusiastic about the potential: “Our goal is to build a useful humanoid robot as soon as possible. We plan to produce robots in large volumes, with low cost and high reliability.”
The biggest surprise is pricing, where Musk is very ambitious: “It’s expected to cost a lot less than a car.” Probably less than $20,000 is my guess. This is significantly less than even the cheapest Tesla car.”
Musk said the robot’s knee joint is inspired by human knees. Tesla also conducts crash tests, similar to those its cars go through, to make sure that any damage to the robot from a fall will only be superficial.
The date of the start of sales has not yet been announced.
“I have expensive cars, I play golf and caress women with large breasts.” One of the leaders of Apple was fired after a bad joke
Apple chief executive Tony Blevins, the company’s vice president of purchasing, is leaving the firm after a rude comment left on the social media platform TikTok.
Daniel Mack, who creates content for TikTok and Instagram, asked Blevins what he does for a living. Mac is a popular tiktoker asking this question to people who drive expensive cars. Blevins was driving a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren valued at $500,000.
Tony Blevins’ answer ended up being the reason for his dismissal: “I have expensive cars, I play golf and caress women with large breasts. But I take weekends and holidays.” The video was recorded at the California Auto Show on August 18 and posted to social media in early September. The 25-second clip got 40,000 likes on Instagram and about 142,000 likes on TikTok. It has been viewed over 1.4 million times.
After Apple became aware of the incident, the company launched an internal investigation, during which Blevins was removed from managing his team of hundreds of Apple employees. An Apple spokesperson told Bloomberg that Blevins is leaving Apple. He issued a statement in which he apologized for his comment: “I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to everyone who was offended by my misguided attempt at humor.”
He was forced to leave Apple after working for the company for 22 years. Blevins was one of 30 top Apple executives who report directly to CEO Tim Cook. His job was to negotiate with suppliers to keep their prices low. He has also worked with contract manufacturers such as Foxconn, Pegatron, and other third-party firms that make Apple products.
