Unique Lightyear One solar panel powered car

The development of the automotive world today is sliding very rapidly and even now being enlivened by the electrification trend. So it is not surprising that there are many concept designs for electric-powered cars been born.

So it is not surprising that this makes a Dutch startup company called Lightyear very enthusiastic to be able to immediately produce solar-powered electric cars. It was even said in the last test that the solar car was claimed to be able to run 441 or the equivalent of 709 km
.

As quoted from Motortrend, in a single charge, the solar-powered electric car called Lightyear One is now claimed to be able to run up to 441 miles or 709 km. Indeed, the resulting cruising distance is not much different from the Tesla Model S and Lucid Air, but it is certain that the Lightyear One will have a smaller battery package.

The Dutch company says that the Lightyear One will only carry a 60 kWh battery pack. So which one is more efficient if this car is compared to the Tesla Model S which carries a 100 kWh battery pack to be able to run 709 km on a single battery charge?

This also shows that the Dutch company has managed to find a way to get a longer range, even in its calculations, this solar electric car Lightyear One is able to run 11 km per 1 kWh when compared to the Tesla Model 3.

Furthermore, the Dutch company said that they are still looking for ways to make this electric solar car capable of running 450 miles or the equivalent of 724 km on a single charge. For the next stage they will also carry out official testing at the EPA and WLTP to prove the efficiency of their electric car. 
As discussed in our article about this car back in 2019, the Dutch startup plans to launch a production model in 2021. And the first 100 vehicles have already been ordered, but there are still 400 more reservation slots available and can be ordered for € 119,000 or around Rp. 1.9 billion. And so far, the automaker has confirmed that the Lightyear One will enter the production line and will become a formidable competitor in the global electric car market. So, we'll just have to wait! *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | LIGHTYEAR ONE | MOTORTREND ]

Let's see the futuristic designed Pininfarina Teorema Concept car

The development of the automotive world today is sliding very rapidly and even now being enlivened by the electrification trend. So it is not surprising that there are many concept designs for electric-powered cars been born. This also invites the interest of one of the well-known Italian coachbulders Pininfarina to get back to being creative and give birth to its best vehicle concepts after the company launched its electric supercar Pininfarina Batista some time ago.

Pininfarina Teorema Concept is a bullet-shaped concept electric-powered vehicle developed by Pininfarina by using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technology. (Picture from GridOto)

And recently, the well-known Italian automotive design house developed a virtually concept electric-powered vehicle named the Pininfarina Teorema. As qouted of the Pininfarina official sites, this concept car is company's latest study design of the futuristic electric-powered car and with the Teorema, the Italian design house wants to interpret an electric-powered car as the urban's fancy mutual vehicle which has the cabin as comfortable as the living room. Of course, the experience of the living room on the wheels such this can be enjoyed on the go by using the vehicle has an advance autonomous technology.

Pininfarina realized this sophisticated bullet-shaped autonomous car concept design in colaboration with several partners such as Poltrona Frau for the seats and Continental Engineering Services for the car's cabin technology. As for propulsion and platform basis, Pininfarina uses a rolling chassis platform made by Benteler.

"The Teorema wants to give back the living comfort while on the car, while driving and on the go, without the frustration of traffic jams or other compromises," said Kevin Rice, Pininfarina's Chief Creative Officer.
Pininfarina Teorema Concept has no side-doors as an ordinary car, instead the back of the car would opened up and forms a passage for the cabin's in-out access. (Picture from: VNExplorer)
Besides that, Pininfarina also said that the design of the concept car which comes dominantly under the color of copper brown is made and designed by using Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality technology and is intended to maximize aerodynamic efficiency which allows the car to run faster, by using a little of power.

Let's take a look the Pininfarina's concept car. Starting from the exterior, the Teorema has a design that is much different from a traditional car design existed today. As you can be seen, the concept is appeared with the one-line pulling design from front to back combined with fins on the sides. Uniquely, the Teorema does not have side-doors like an ordinary car. Instead, the back of the car would opened up and forms a passage for the cabin's in-out access, and the passengers would be guided by the lights on the floor of this concept car to their seats.

Next about the cabin, the Teorema concept car has a 2+2+1 seating layout in standard-mode and can turn into a space to interact as its occupants wishes such on the lounge-mode, the front seats can rotate 360 ​​degrees, and the two middle seats can laid down and put together with the rear seats to be used as the benches for your chit-chat. Not only that, thanks to the adoption of VR technology, the Teorema cabin is able to provide a unique expansive experience with a full glass roof.
Because it is currently still presented as a concept car design, so not much technical data is disclosed and even not known whether there are plans from Pininfarina to produce the car in the real world. In our opinion, the Teorema concept car is more suitable for use as a means of limited public transportation in urban areas.

BMW Motorrad unveils the unusually shaped electric scooter

The world's motorized vehicle manufacturers are currently focusing on developing products that are more environmentally friendly, one way is to replace the conventional combustion engines with those that use electric-based drivetrains.
BMW CE04 is the culmination of a design and engineering process by BMW Motorrad that started with the C Evolution electric scooter back in 2014, followed by the Concept Link in 2017. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
That's also apparently what BMW Motorrad has been doing for years. One of them when the German company since 2011 has developed a motorcycle concept or more precisely an electric-powered scooter known as the BMW C Evolution and introduced to the public in 2014. Furthermore, the German company re-created and launched an electric scooter concept as an environmentally friendly scooter of the urban transportation called the BMW Concept Link in the 2017.
BMW CE04 is bringing a new level of sophistication to electrically powered urban mobility with a host of technological refinement. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
Well, we will discuss about the BMW's electric-powered scooter again. Recently, BMW Motorrad launched an electric-powered scooter called the BMW CE04. As reported by Paultan.org, on Thursday, July 8, 2021, the two-wheeled vehicle directly became the center of attention because of its unusual design.
BMW CE04 has the front looks like a motorcycle in general, with a slightly wider body and LED headlights. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
In appearance, it's clear that the BMW Motorrad's new scooter adopts the designs and styles that has been made previously for those 2 concepts mentioned above. As stated by the German company, the CE04 is the culmination of a design and engineering process by BMW Motorrad that began with the C Evolution electric scooter back in 2014, followed by the Concept Link in 2017.
BMW CE04 has a 10.25-inch TFT-LCD screen displays all the necessary information, including integrated map navigation and connectivity to the rider’s smartphone. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
At first glance, the scooter-style vehicle at the front looks like a motorcycle in general, with a slightly wider body and LED headlights. However, the seat are made thin and elongated and wrapped in a material with two color combinations. The handlebars resemble a jet ski watercraft, and at the front is fitted with a small mica that serves to protect the instrument panel.

As for acceleration, it is said to be quite responsive and powerful, where it is stated that the BMW CE04 is able to accelerate from zero to a speed of 50 kilometers per hour in just 2.6 seconds and this electric scooter can also be driven up to 120 km per hour.
BMW CE04 is driven by a frame mounted electric motor with belt drive to the rear wheel by 42 hp of power. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
This German company knows that a fast electric scooter will not sell if it cannot be used for long distances. That is why, BMW Motorrad then equipped this model with an 8.9 kWh battery pack, which in full condition is claimed to be used up to 130 kilometers.

Talking about the battery, the charging time when using standard facilities is more than four hours. However, if you use a fast charging system, from 20 percent to 80 percent it only takes 45 minutes. We bet, there're some of you want to have this unique scooter, so far BMW Motorrad has not mentioned yet about the price of this unique electric scooter. So it made you who want to have this scooter should be patient a little longer.😉
Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops..... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PAULTAN.ORG ]

Peugeot has prepared its new 9X8 hypercar to fight at the WEC 2022

Fierce and savage, maybe that's the first impression when you see the latest hypercar from the French company Peugeot. How not, the followed low-slung hypercar called the Peugeot 9X8 planed to fight at the FIA's World Endurance Championship 2022 for Peugeot. It will fight fiercely with other race cars like the Toyota GR Super Sport when it reaches the grid in 2022. While its unique name is taken from one of the Peugeot's legendary racing cars such as the 905 which had won the Le Mans 24-Hours of 1992 and 1993.

If we pay close attention, the fierce impression is clearly visible from its appearance starting from the claw-like headlight and taillight design, besides that the 9X8 also features the company's lion head logo that lights up on the nose and sides. While deep air intakes and large side scoops are standard hypercar fare, uniquely you wouldn't find a large wing at rear and that's perhaps the most striking design element of it.
Peugeot 9X8 hypercar is powered by hybrid system which consists of a rear-mounted 2.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine capable of spewing power around 680 hp and a front-mounted 200kW (272hp) electric motor. (Picture from: CarWow)
However the French auto company was reluctant to comment further, regarding the Peugeot's designers success removed the rear wing features while maintaining the required downforce and aerodynamic efficiency by simply saying that they intend to keep the secret of this innovation for themselves as long possible, as stated by Stellantis Motorsport Director, Jean-Marc Finot.
Peugeot 9X8 hypercar has a minimalist interior, with race seats, roll cage and clean dash, due to the dials and digital displays and everything is already attached digitally in the steering. (Picture from: CarWow)
The Peugeout 9X8's fierce exterior layered by Selenium Grey and contrasting Kryptonite acid green/yellow highlights on the interior, these are a typical livery of the Peugeot Sport Engineered as you can be seen on models like the new 508.

Since it's built as the racing-purposed cars hence have a rather minimalist interior, only filled with race seats, roll cage and there's no dash which usually full of dials and digital displays such as on the other race car cabins, but in the Peugeot 9X8 everything is already attached digitally in the steering, so allowing the driver to stay focused on one point while on driving.
The hybrid system of the Peugeot 9X8 hypercar is then paired with a 900-volt battery packages and a seven-speed sequential gearbox. (Picture from: CarWow)
For the drivetrain, the Peugeot's hypercar applies a hybrid drive system consisting of a rear-mounted 2.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine capable of spewing power around 680 hp and a front-mounted 200kW (272hp) electric motor. The hybrid system is then paired with a 900-volt battery packages and a seven-speed sequential gearbox (which is said in the final stages of development) to make Peugeot 9X8 run faster on the tracks.
As per racing regulations, the total output of both power sources will be limited to just 670 hp through various softwares and hardwares. This will help to ensure tight and fair races on track while still giving more leeway to the engineers in developing more innovative powertrain technologies. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARWOW ]

Finally the latest hybrid V6 engined of Ferrari revealed

Still fresh in our memories, some time ago we've been discussed about the prancing horse logoed premium car manufacturer being testing a v6 engined car covered by a strange-looking camouflage known as the F171 around its plant in Maranello which is said also projected as a rival to the McLaren Artura.
Ferrari officially launched the latest V6 engine model called the Ferrari 296 GTB. (Picture from: Roadandtrack)
And recently, Ferrari officially launched the latest V6 engine model called the Ferrari 296 GTB (GTB for 'GranTurismo Berlinetta'), as we know that the Italian manufacturer last launched a V6 engine model back in the 1960s and called the Ferrari Dino 246 GT

And the Ferrari 296 GTB sports car is the third of three promised cars for this year. Meanwhile its first SUV called Ferrari Purosangue (Italian mean for 'thoroughbred' or 'pure blood') is expected to launch next year (2022). And specifically for the 296 GTB model, it will be launched in 2 variants, namely the standard version and the tough and track-oriented Assetto Fiorano version.
The Ferrari 296 GTB 'Asseto Fiorano' variant is described as the tough and track-oriented version. (Picture from: GridOto)
Also, for the first time in a mid-engined sports car, Ferrari uses active aero devices to create downforce instead of reducing drag. The mentioned kit is inspired by the Ferrari LaFerrari, which includes an active rear spoiler integrated into the rear bumper.

The Italian manufacturer claims that this device is said to be capable of producing downforce of up to 360 kg at 155 mph when embedded in the tough and track-oriented Assetto Fiorano package. Even in the standard version, it produces 100 kg more than its predecessor.
The Ferrari 296 GTB is powered by a hybrid drivetrain consisting of a 2,992cc V6 turbocharged engine coupled with an electric motor. (Picture from: Roadandtrack)
The car has also been outfitted with distinctive design features promoting its visual connection to other new-age Ferraris, including the Ferrari SF90 Stradale and Roma, while clearly distancing this newcomer Prancing Horse species from the Ferrari F8 Tributo and its closely related 488 GTB ancestor.
The Ferrari 296 GTB will be priced at €269,000 or $321,000 for the standard version, while for the Assetto Fiorano version which has spectacular capabilities will be priced at €302,000. (Picture from: Roadandtrack)
However, Ferrari also admits that this model is inspired by its legendary classics such as the 1963 Ferrari 250 LM, which is evident in the design of the B-pillar, hamstring and stern crest. While the cover windshield is a keyword borrowed from the unique Ferrari P80/C and the Ferrari J50, known as the Ferrari species specifically for Japan.
Ferrari 296 GTB is powered by a 2,992cc V6 turbocharged engine to develop 654 hp alone. (Picture from: Roadandtrack)
The car also has a number of air intakes made as small as possible (for a cleaner look) by blowing hot air under the car, meaning cold air must be separated from the rear intercooler, while the hybrid system cools the vents towards the rear, while the front of the car can be optimized aerodynamically with a more conical design than before.

Then the use of "Aero" calipers, which are inspired by the SF90 Stradale, also allows a number of optimizations for downforce. They are cooled by an integrated duct in the headlights by creating a space to bring the underbody as deep as possible to the floor and thus "exaggerates the suction caused by the floor effect". 
The Ferrari 296 GTB uses active 'Aero' flap devices to create downforce instead of reducing drag inspired of the LaFerrari model. (Picture from: Roadandtrack)
Meanwhile, as a drivetrain, this car carries a hybrid drivetrain consisting of a 2,992cc V6 turbocharged engine combined with an electric motor, all of which are capable of pumping power up to 818 hp (in which the gasoline engine alone develops 654 hp, while its electrical motor assists the power of 164 hp).

Furthermore, for performance, the new Ferrari 296 GTB is able to accelerate from rest to 100 kph in just 2.9 seconds, to match the F8. Then to speed up to 200 kph in 7.9 seconds or half a second faster than Tributo. On flats, the new car can be accelerated to a top speed of 330 kph, slightly slower than the conventional V8 engined Ferraris.
With performance figures like that, on paper it clearly seen that the Ferrari 296 GTB is slightly powerful than its British rival Artura. But if in real conditions it has never been proven which one is more powerful. Maybe it's waiting for you to take it to the circuit and races against Artura.😉
For the price, the Italian manufacturer says that the two-seater sports car will be priced at €269,000 or $321,000 for the standard version, while for the Assetto Fiorano version which has spectacular capabilities will be priced at €302,000 (approx Rp. 5,202 billion). And the first shipments are expected to be realized in the first quarter of 2022 for the European consumers. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FERRARI | MOTOR1 | ROADANDTRACK ]
