In particular, the car, and the dimensions of this robot can be called a car, received a very large airbag for pedestrians. True, it is not yet clear how fast such a robot will be able to move, and a pillow is advisable in this case, but, probably, in some scenarios it will come in handy. Of course, such a car will move on roads, not sidewalks, since it is too large. And in this case, the speed will not be limited by the conditional 5 km / h.

There are no other details about the car. Nuro says that production of the novelty will begin before the end of this year at the plant, which is still under construction. But here it is necessary to stipulate that the company has been producing such cars for several years already, and they are already really driving on US roads.

Samsung SDI is already in test production of the 4080 type cylindrical battery, which has a diameter of 40mm and a height of 80mm. Samsung plans to receive orders for the supply of such batteries from the largest players in the market, including Tesla and Lucid Electric.

It is reported that the Samsung 4080 battery has entered the stage of final confirmation of the specification and will soon be put into mass production at overseas factories in Malaysia and Hungary. This battery is not inferior in performance to the 4680 type battery.

In February last year, Samsung SDI and Lucid signed a supply agreement, but this agreement was for 21700 format batteries. It is expected that due to the successful development and mass production of batteries such as 4080, in the future the company will be able to compete with Panasonic in the production of 4680 batteries, which plan to use in Tesla electric vehicles.

Tesla has previously stated that the 4680 battery’s energy density has increased by 5 times, the range of the car has increased by 16%, and the power has increased by 6 times compared to current batteries. However, commercial use of the 4680 battery has reportedly been delayed until 2023.

Steering wheel instead of steering wheel for Tesla Model S costs from 2300 to 3500 dollars

Back in January last year, Tesla announced that it would reinvent the steering wheel. In June, the first Tesla Model S Plaid customers received their cars with steering wheels instead of the usual steering wheel, while most remained unhappy with the changes.

This shape of the steering wheel is not very convenient when driving in the city and when parking, when you need to turn it several times. The buttons on the steering wheel are also responsible for the direction indicators. At the same time, the head of Tesla, Elon Musk, said that they will not equip the updated Model S with a traditional steering wheel. Sources say the company was considering a traditional handlebar solution, but for some reason that solution was dropped.

Tesla tuning company T Sportline said it is offering a more familiar steering wheel shape for the new Tesla Model S to meet the needs of most drivers. The T Sportline currently has two versions of the modified steering wheel to choose from, including a leather steering wheel, priced at $2,299. Another option adds carbon fiber parts, priced at $3,499. It is worth noting that both handlebars are not standard and are cut off at the top and bottom. More precisely, it looks as if the original steering wheel was simply built up from above.

Although this is a lot, at a price of more than 130 thousand dollars, such an extra charge for the wheel does not seem fantastic.
