Two Tesla electric motors and over 550 km / h. Set a new speed record for electric vehicles

Published

on

Team Vesco 444 reVolt Systems set a new speed record for electric vehicles on the Little Giant electric streamliner.

We are talking about the official US national record and the unofficial world record. The fact is that the team did not start the race in the opposite direction, which is necessary to set an official world record. But they still managed to reach a top speed of 574.5 km / h with an average of 568 km / h. And this is 19 km / h faster than the official world record.

The record is also interesting in that Little Giant actually relies on a pair of modified Tesla engines. The creators of the car believe that in the future they will be able to reach speeds of 644 km / h (400 mph). And these are not just dreams, because during the current race, already at the finish line, the streamliner still continued to accelerate.

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.

Tesla Semi production has finally begun almost 5 years

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.

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.
