In constant development and ever closer to tangibility, the car
Apple’s car will apparently benefit from Hyundai’s economy of scale, as well as Hyundai, as well as a power train with 800v architecture of the same manufacturer Korean company, for a range of over 500km and excellent performance: from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.5s and a top speed of 260 km/h.
Nasa Prototype Veichle for Mars
With an appearance worthy of admiration among fans of Hot Wheels and Mass Effect fans, this massive, futuristic NASA-designed concept veichle with specific functionality, was to be launched for the Mars Exploration
Rover of 2020 and land on the “red planet” in 2021 for exploration purposes.
Samsung Digital Cockpit
Samsung’s vision “bypasses” the others in terms of infotainment with the
of infotainment with Digital Cockpit, a true cockpit/living room
digital presented at the CES in Las Vegas 2021 in a much revamped version compared to 2018. The Korean multinational presented innovative
features with this vehicle: 5G, Internet of Cars, a Monitoring
System that is increasingly updated and a huge ’48 screen that towers over the dashboard… but the other properties are all to be discovered!
Sony Vision S
A visionary granturismo that wants to stand out against established cars such as Porsche Panamera or the respective granturismo of BMW and Mercedes. Technology and reliability reach their peak in this “electrifying” Japanese sedan, equipped with 2 electric motors capable of over 500 hp, which allow excellent performance in comfort and with super advanced infotainments.
Kalashnikov Concern CV-1
A proud product of mother Russia, a car to be catalogued as the anti-
Tesla of the East more rough and spartan, such as to almost celebrate the design of the Lada of the ’70s. With over 300 hp and a range of about 500 km, this “concept assault” will be the starting point for several electric vehicles, including two-wheelers, Russian production.
Bosch IoT Shuttle
More than a living room like the Digital Cockpit, it could be defined as an original intelligent shuttle, the child of Bosch’s determination to enter the industry not only as a supplier but also as a manufacturer. This cute service vehicle is also able to offer real-time information: both to passersby and occupants (with personalized content)
The collaboration of the Chinese giant Geely, with Faraday Future, a startup
American startup, is leading to the development of a high-performance luxury SUV, battery-powered, with over 1000 hp and with an appearance that could intimidate even an Audi Q8. A project that requires onerous investments but that could really put on alert the world’s leading manufacturers, engaged in electric cars of this caliber.
Roborace powered by Nvidia
A little toy realized to test, to promote and to exalt the
strength and the computational capacity of Nvidia chips, even if they are decontextualized from a personal computer and similar devices. Obviously
inside this single-seater, there is no pilot…
FCA/Archer vs Porsche/Boeing
The objectives are:
on the one hand “flying cabs”, exploiting the vertical and empty space of the of urban traffic and for which the start-up company “Archer Aviation” will offer its support to the FCA group, with the expectation of starting production in
on the other, there are two giants (the German Porsche and the American Boeing), not a giant and a start-up, for what really looks like the ultimate high performance the ultimate high-performance flying car and that should see first production in 2025.
It is interesting to await with excitement the outcome of these two joint ventures, two agreements of the same nature but with different market goals: air mobility for all and private luxury air mobility. What is certain is that this antithetical binomial is a utopian prelude that may become reality in the very distant future. For now, even sitting on a “flying bicycle cab” is luxury!
