Carbon brakes are commonly found in racing cars, track day cars, or sports cars. Equipping a family sedan with such brakes is rare, but the Tesla Model S Plaid is an obvious exception to this rule, as the electric car accelerates to 100 km / h in about 2 seconds and sets Nurburgring lap times.
During normal operation, the Model S Plaid has enough standard brakes, but if the driver wakes up the desire to bring the electric car to its limit, ceramic brakes are indispensable, because only they can provide deceleration stability in prolonged extreme driving modes with frequent heavy braking. But such a pleasure cannot be called cheap – a set of carbon-ceramic brakes for the “mad” Tesla is estimated at $ 20,000!
Tesla has previously promised a track kit for the Model S Plaid and likely carbon ceramic brakes are the first part of that kit. It is important to note that such an accessory will only go on sale in 2022, and it can only be used with 21-inch discs.
The “aged” Toyota RAV4 has become more modern. A new version of the Mitsuoka Buddy crossover is presented
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.
The original Buddy body panels are made from polypropylene and molded ABS plastic.
Tesla Semi production has finally begun – almost 5 years after the announcement. Pepsi will receive electric trucks on December 1, 2022
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.
This is Honda’s first electric crossover, and it’s big. The company showed the Prologue model
Honda has fully shown its first electric Prologue crossover, which it nominally announced back in May.
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.
From the rest, an 11-inch digital instrument panel and the same infotainment screen are reported.
