EDAG's Future CityBot for ease the urban living

EDAG, which claims to be the largest independent German development service provider in the world, has not only presented its scalable bottom for electric vehicles. But with "EDAG CityBot" it now also presents a game-changer for the city of the future.
The EDAG six-wheeled robocar on display at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2MWLG9X)
The German engineering firm built this six-wheeled, 22nd century-esque prototype to showcase its expertise. It’s presumably electric and the armada of cameras, sensors, and radars suggest it’s capable of driving itself – at least in theory. 

As a fully autonomous transport and work vehicle, EDAG wants to get out of the city traffic infarction with its EDAG City Bot and thus open new business models for its own company. For the first time, the fully autonomous network robotic vehicle will be exhibited at the IAA 2019.

At least one of the many models that will be available at a later date. Thanks to numerous modules of trailers and backpacks, the electrified vehicle should be able to master transport and work situations of all kinds in the urban area and be in motion 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Designed as a so-called multimodal mobility concept, the EDAG CityBot is presented as an intelligent, multifunctional and fully autonomous robotic vehicle that emits zero emissions through the propulsion of the fuel cell.
Each forward-drive module could pair with city maintenance, cargo delivery, dump truck, passenger cell, and other modules throughout the day, doing the work of a number of individual vehicles. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2MWLG9X)
The vehicle is characterized by its modularity and multifunctionality. outside, which is also available 24 hours operating modules and on-demand, for example it can be configured as a passenger compartment, cargo carrier or city cleaning device. Therefore, the EDAG CityBot can certainly be understood as a smart alternative to private transport, which uses autonomous driving intelligently for various applications in urban mobility. 
The concept points to all mobility actors in the new ecosystem: OEMs, urban planners, and urban planners, infrastructure associations, transport companies, waste disposal and transportation, municipal and logistics facilities. If these are based on the new EDAG vehicle, city dwellers should be able to move, stress-free and without congestion, and live in a city without emissions.

And all of those could be Your future robotic servants? Maybe. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEW ATLAS]

Libelle concept in between obsession and dream

The existence of a scooter in the midst of modern society that been began in the early 20th century seems not only to be used as one of reliable means of transportations, but also gives a special touch of art. It can be seen in the physical form of this transportation that varies ranging from cute to big and strong.
Bastert Einspurauto Libelle Concept designed by Anneke Bastert. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2oEsK7T)
All of those scooters are created from the skilled hands of designers and engineers who have built them starting from the design up to becoming the real forms with a touch of qualified engineering added with high-level art.

So do not be surprised if many of the classic scooter models are used as a source of inspiration for automotive designers today in making the design of the future vehicles. For example, the following is a design concept created by a participant in an internship at Mercedes Benz Design Stuttgart and later used as her diploma thesis supported by the German automotive giant, Daimler AG. The designer of this future scooter concept is an industrial design student from Bielefeld named Anneke Bastert.
Left side view of Bastert Einspurauto Libelle Concept designed by Anneke Bastert. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2oEsK7T)
The scooter design concept she made was given the name Bastert Einspurauto Libelle Concept. The future scooter design is described as a nimble urban two-wheeled vehicle with unique features that support practical, comfortable and contemporary transportation facilities that are conceptualized as contemporary family scooters. Besides the environmentally friendly scooters are also intended as an answer to traffic and parking problems for urban community, and are sophisicated designed to replace the city car.

It was also mentioned that the Libelle scooter concept designer had an obsession to 'revive' the figure of an elegant, comfortable, all-round Bastert Einspurauto scooters, then took it as a source of inspiration. For information, the classic Bastert Einspurauto scooters were made in Bielefeld, Germany in the 1950s.

An eccentric-shaped prototype car from Toyota

The world's sports car enthusiasts were recently surprised by the presence of a new Toyota car design. Although the car has a slightly unique shape, so there are those who consider it as a substitute for the legendary Toyota MR2.
An eccentric-shaped prototype car called Toyota La Coupe on displat at a ferry terminal in Nishima, Japan. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/35xEkSZ)
Apparently it's not just design. This new Toyota model which is called unattractive actually has a prototype version. The photo was shared by members of the SupraMKV forum, via Carscoops recently.

The car model was given the name Toyota La Coupe and was displayed at a ferry terminal in Naoshima, Japan, some time ago. But the car looks older than the picture spread via Twitter. Previously the photos distributed on Twitter showed that the car was at the Ginza Sony Park in October last year.
Previously the Toyota La Coupe picture was shared by members of the SupraMKV forum. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2IPgp7N)
This car is more interesting because it is considered never appeared before and is quite mysterious. Toyota La Coupe itself is known as a 2-door coupe concept car that has a pair of oval shaped headlamps with a slightly tapered tip and a DRL unique design.
Toyota La Coupe itself is known as a 2-door coupe concept car and powered by a hybrid system. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2OTyvZV)
The Toyota La Coupe also has a front spoiler embedded with a blue-colored Toyota logo. It reminds us, those blue-colored logo is usually used by Toyota for their hybrid cars. So, indirectly the car has been known to use environmentally friendly powertrain.

Then on the back is more unique than the front. The car's rear section looks like a reflection from the front. It's just with the use of different forms of rear lights. There are very few interior photos, and of the few that exist, they only show small sections of the interior such as the instrument cluster and centre stack.
Toyota La Coupe features a rarely seen styling feature with the front and rear lights being virtually identical. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/32o6VIk)
Judging off these pictures, the interior is very basic, with two circular digital displays showing only essential information such as speed, fuel level, current gear and battery level. This also indicates that the La Coupe is a hybrid.

But until now everything is still in a mystery. But that's not the end of the story. What's interesting is the fact that Toyota made this design proposal in the first place.
Toyota La Coupe is very futuristic with many smooth, flowing lines creating a rounded, aerodynamic shape. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/32o6VIk)
So while the design of the La Coupe will not be seen in the showroom, it still opens the possibility that Toyota, indeed, contemplates a middle-engined coupe at least.
There has been talks of a new Celica or MR2 in the past. In fact, Toyota Gazoo Racing chief Tetsuya Tada said that he is keen on bringing in a third Toyota sports car. But as to what it will be, it will be a long wait for the answer, if ever it comes at all. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SUPRAMKV | CARSCOOPS | AUTOINDUSTRIYA | DRIVETRIBE]

This is the future electric big motorbike embodiment

One of the British electric motorcycle manufacturers named ARC Vehicle officially scheduled to immediately produce and launch its new product of its new facility in South Wales next year and it named the ARC Vector. The company said the the electric motorcycle already able to be ordered at a price of £90,000 (around $117,000 or Rp.1.6 billion).
The ARC Vector electric-powered sports motorcycle has managed to debut at the 2018 EICMA Milan event. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2mPDsre)
As reported by Carscoops, on its first production batch will made as much 399 units of motorcycle. It to be built to order in the first 18 months and give its prospective buyers more and more reasons to be excited about what the company calls the "most advanced electric motorcycle in the world."

As the most sophisticated electric motor in the world, this motorbike adopts Human Interface technology, carbon monocoque, hub-center steering, wheel inspired by characteristics and more.
The ARC Vector is said the future electric big motorbike embodiment. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2mPDsre)
On the other hand the presence of an electric motorbike also aims to bring a motor that is nimble and has a lot of power, but also also user-friendly and fun to drive both in the city and on the open road. This is where the hub-center steering system enters.

“The system that we have developed provides low speed control on the bicycle. There are a number of manufacturers who have implemented hub-center steering in the past, but they do it with an anti-dive system," said the ARC founder and CEO Mark Truman.
Hub-center steering system necessitates a front swingarm. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2mPDsre)
"For Vector, we have created a system that has all the benefits of HCS but feels like a series of prongs. The advantage is that rigidity allows for steep rake angles and chassis which allows rapid change of direction with stability at high speeds. What we have designed is the best of both worlds without negative things," he said further.

As for the drivetrain sector, the ARC Vector EV relies on a 399-volt electric motor which is claimed to be able to burst power up to 133 horse power and 109 lb-ft (148 Nm) of torque. And to be noted,  this bike weighs 485 lbs (220 kg) which makes it a little heavier than most conventional sports motorcycles, though not much.

In addition, even though the weight is quite heavy, the fantastic priced electric motor can also accelerate from 0 up to 60 mph (96 kph) in 3 seconds and able to be ride to top speed of 125 mph (201 kph).
And when it rode in urban areas, the ARC Vector offers a range of 387 miles (623 km), while on the highway it can travel 230 miles (370 km). The average mileage is in the range of 270 miles (435 km). Yes, all of them were pretty impressive numbers aren't...

Hongqi showing up its 2 futuristic car concepts at Frankfurt

One of the Chinese luxury car brands, Hongqi (translates as "Red flag") was listed as one of the surprise participants at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, considering that so many other auto brands that were far more popular in Europe just not shown up.
Hongqi brand has revealed its first S9 hybrid hypercar and E115 electric SUV at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2lQ4ldL)
At the Hongqi booth in those auto expo was seen showing two units of its production vehicles, but they only served the purpose to raise knowledge and awareness among the exhibition visitors on the luxury auto brand owned by FAW Group.

1. Hongqi S9 Hypercar
The first and can be said to be the spectacular is the Hongqi S9 which was their first self-designed and made hypercar. According to the head of FAW Group, Xu Liuping, the Hongqi S9 concept packs a "V8T hybrid power system," leading us to believe that this powertrain combines a V8 turbo petrol engine with one or several electric motors as its driving force.

The Chinese manufacturer claims the S9 hybrid powertrain is capable of producing maximum power of up to 1,400 horsepower, thus enabling the hypercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 1.9 seconds and its top speed reaches up to 400 kph. Even though it sounds crazy, Hongqi said that they really will produce this S9 hypercar.

"S9 is not just an exhibition car, it will be put into mass production and sent to the customers in 2021," Xu said. And the price for the Hongqi's first hypercar with a carbon fiber body with butterfly door type is reportedly touching the figure of 2 million Euros (US. $2.2 million).

2. Hongqi E115 SUV
The second is the Hongqi E115, this is an electric SUV that is claimed to offer a mileage of 600 km (373 miles). The Chinese company also said that their AWD SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in less than 4 seconds.

Furthermore this China company does not provide details about electric motors and batteries. Only, it was said that this concept vehicle featured the Level 4 autonomous driving technology.
And the car's front looks a bit reminiscent us to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan figure. This is not surprising, considering that the current Hongqi's head of design is Gilles Taylor who used to work for the British luxury brand. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS | ENUZE]
