Weight 15 kg, 25 km / h, soft suspension and load capacity 100 kg, inexpensive. Yadea KS3 Electric Scooter Introduced

Published

on

Electric vehicle manufacturer Yadea has released the convenient, lightweight and inexpensive Yadea KS3 electric scooter, which is a smaller version of the more expensive, powerful and heavier Yadea scooters.

It is designed for drivers who need to carry it frequently by hand when reaching their destination. Therefore, they do not need to worry about the scooter being stolen in the parking lot. This foldable scooter weighs just under 15 kg and has a payload of 100 kg. It can reach a top speed of 25 km / h and has a 500 W motor.

The KS3 competes favorably with electric scooters in its price range. It boasts some additional features that will draw extra attention to it. The Yadea KS3 has a soft front suspension that helps smooth bumps. The 8.5 x 2.4 inch tires do not need to be inflated. The minimum wear resistance of the tires is about 5,000 km. With a declared range of 30 km without recharging, tires can last for several years and more than 150 full charge cycles.

The front drum brake is also an innovative feature of the KS3. The drum brake is maintenance-free and sealed to better protect it from dirt and damage. Brake drums will not fade in wet conditions. Likewise, the rear brake is durable and requires no maintenance. The rear brake charges the battery during braking on the road.

The Yadea KS3 is cheaper than its faster predecessors. The Yadea KS3 electric scooter costs $ 569 and can be purchased on Amazon.

Enthusiast adds CarPlay support to Tesla

Published

Tesla’s EV infotainment system is great in many ways, but it doesn’t support Apple CarPlay. This does not mean, however, that enthusiasts cannot add support. One such attempt was reported by a source.

Enthusiast adds CarPlay support to Tesla

Polish user Michal Gapiński (Micha? Gapi?ski) posted photos and videos of his work on Twitter, showing how Tesla works with Apple CarPlay. The video shows Apple Maps, Apple Music and more working.

At the same time, it was not necessary to make any changes to the Tesla hardware. Instead, the enthusiast bypassed Wi-Fi restrictions by allowing the Tesla Browser to connect to an additional device. As a result, the Tesla infotainment system shows a live video feed from the host device. The developer explained that the system uses a Raspberry Pi single-board computer with a special version of Android. The Android build used can run CarPlay, which allows you to display the entire system on a large display.

However, the system is not perfect. As the developer notes, the Wi-Fi connection needs some work to improve the smoothness of the display. He also says that when this is done, he plans to open the development to the general public.

The Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck will have a “little brother” in miniature form

Published

While Elon Musk and Tesla continue to push back the start of production of the Cybertruck electric pickup truck to ever later dates, information has appeared on the network about the possible release of another version of this car.

The Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck will have a

Initially, the rather well-known Indian analyst Trip Chowdhry from Global Equities Research, who specializes, among other things, in Tesla, shared the information.

According to the source, Tesla will present two versions of the Cybertruck at a special event in March 2022.

Moreover, Chaudhry notes that both versions will receive “significant changes” compared to the Cybertruck originally shown. Chaudhry did not go into details of the changes, but noted that the second version of the Cybertruck will be about 15-20 percent smaller than the first. The bodies of both cars will reportedly be built by the same Texas-based Steel Dynamics company, which operates about 100 miles from Tesla’s Texas plant.

Chaudhry expects to hear the first official news on the matter on January 26, when Tesla will report earnings to investors.

Recall that in November 2019, Elon Musk himself said that in the long run it makes sense to add a more miniature Cybertruck to the lineup. Since then, however, he has not further developed the idea publicly.

BP says EV charging stations will soon be more profitable than gas stations

Published

on

Oil giant British Petroleum (BP) says its electric vehicle charging stations are “on the verge” of becoming more profitable than gas stations for combustion engines. The moment this happens could be a turning point for electric vehicles and “big oil,” the source said.

The electric vehicle charging business has been unprofitable from the start for oil companies such as Shell and BP, which are forced to embrace the electric future. That may change soon, however, as BP’s latest data show that, on a margin-adjusted basis, its UK network of BP pulse fast battery chargers is approaching the profitability of petrol stations. And by 2025, the division could become profitable on its own.

  BP says EV charging stations will soon be more profitable than gas stations

“If I think about a tank of fuel versus fast charging, we’re getting closer to a place where fast-charging business fundamentals are better than (fossil) fuels,” said Emma Delaney, Head of Customers and Products at BP .

No date has been given for when, according to BP’s calculations, the profit from charging electric vehicles will exceed the profit from the sale of fossil fuels. However, the company said its sales of electricity for charging electric vehicles grew by 45% between the second and third quarters of 2021 alone.

“Overall, we see a huge opportunity in fast charging for consumers and businesses, and for fleets in general,” Delaney explained. “That’s where we see growth and where we see profits.”

The London-based company plans to expand its electric vehicle charging business from its current 11,000 stations to 70,000 by 2030.
