The Design 3 telsa today

The Tesla Design 3 is among one of the most awaited brand-new automobiles of the years. While the Design S changed exactly how we see electrical cars and trucks, the Design 3 is intended to be the one that equalizes them. Tesla developed the 3 to be easier as well as a lot more cost effective, and also the business wishes to develop countless them.
Adhere to along as we run via the vitals on the Design 3, look at why it has actually developed such a buzz, and also attempt to make some feeling of it all. Look for routine updates right here as the Design 3 tale proceeds to unravel.

The most essential adjustments are within, where Audi’s MMI Touch system and also online cabin are currently offered, as are a number of driver-assistance systems that had actually formerly been not available to A3 customers. Those systems consist of Audi’s forward-collision caution system, back cross-traffic alert, as well as a lane-departure caution system.

Tesla has actually not yet defined the abilities in kilowatt-hours of the 2 offered battery packs, and also the Version 3 actions to a classification that isn’t really focused on the quantity of power storage space. Leading rate is noted as 130 miles per hour for the common Design 3 and also 140 miles per hour for the Lengthy Variety version.
The Design 3 does not utilize the exact same battery modern technology as the Version S. It makes use of cells with a brand-new chemistry as well as layout generated by distributor Panasonic. These cells are constructed right into the battery pack at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Stimulates, Nevada.

Chauffeurs that are looking to grow auto envy on a spending plan will certainly be delighted to listen to that the Audi A3 uses a lot of exactly what we such as regarding the German deluxe brand name without the surprising cost. Base designs could be missing out on some high-end functions, yet they have actually still obtained the appearances and also the design. Much better yet, with optional all-wheel drive and also an exchangeable version, the A3 could be set up to match a range of tastes and also environments.
Convertibles typically aren’t the very best selection for the majority of customers as well as the A3 cabriolet begins $7000 north of its car double, so we would certainly stick to the repaired roofing if we were acquiring an entry-level Audi. We would certainly select the mid-level A3 Costs And also, which begins at $36,000.
We would certainly think about the $3000 Innovation bundle, which includes Audi’s exceptional MMI infomercial system with navigating in addition to blind-spot tracking and also back cross-traffic alert. Four-wheel drive is likewise a $3000 alternative in every trim of the A3, for those that require all-weather adaptability. The complete rate of our Costs And also car appears to $42,000.

Nissan Leaf

The new Nissan Leaf has begun leaf stripping on September 5th, when it will be fully unveiled. Yes, but as usual, copies without camouflage are taken in photos.

We have already discovered the interior of the Nissan Leaf, as well as its exterior appearance a week ago. Here it is without makeup. It features a front panel inspired by the Nissan IDS concept presented at the end of 2015. Another point inspired by the concept, the tail lights in “boomerang” very pronounced.

We also find the bi-tone bodywork with the cutting so special, already present on IDS. Here, another car entirely red, allows to appreciate the car as it is likely to see her most often. That is to say of a single color. These photos are taken, a priori, at the Oppama factory in Japan.
The new Nissan Leaf less “soft”

By abandoning the “bonhomie” of its current design, the new Nissan Leaf looks more like the current Nissan. But with this angular rear, does not it risk – again – to divert with a style that would not deny the Honda Civic for the rear? Less “Gol

For the autonomy, it is for the moment rather vague. We are talking about two battery packs available 40 and 60kWh and a very attractive floor price.

On the equipment side, it should seduce the most technophile with the presence of the Nissan ProPilot. As a reminder, it is not a fully autonomous driving system, but must allow on a fast track to provide the driver who must remain vigilant anyway.

Electric and autonomous, the new Nissan Leaf is a foretaste of a certain future of the automobile.

Ferraris are the Sergio

Among the rarest Ferraris are the Sergio. Presented at the end of 2014, the supercar is derived from the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio concept and has only been produced in six. So here is one for sale, the very first of this short series.

The Ferrari Sergio here for sale is number one out of six. To make it a little more distinct, it has a yellow hue of the most visible.

Like any other exclusive car, it has a low mileage, 118 kilometers. As soon as it was put into circulation, it was delivered to the private museum SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the United Arab Emirates. With such a lived experience, there is no doubt that the car is in a state close to perfection.

Under the hood, there is an atmospheric V8 4.5 over 600 horsepower with similar performance to the F458 Spider from which it drifts, including a 0 to 100 km / h in 3 seconds.

To get back to the wheel, and certainly store it in another museum, you will still have to split $ 4,300,000. A sum that is not indecent in the world of supercars.

Just one month after announcing the (temporary) abandonment of its plant project in Las Vegas, Faraday Future found a new point of departure. He settled in a former Pirelli plant in Fresno, California.

Despite the adversity and financial problems, including those affecting his main LeEco support, Faraday Future is looking to stay on course for a production of its crossover FF91 at the end of next year. So let’s rethink its ambitions downwards.

Forget the giant factory in Las Vegas, which Faraday soon replaced by another site, more modest, but real … It is indeed a factory created in the 60s by Armstrong Rubber, taken over in 1982 by Pirelli which has abandoned it since 2001. The site could in full rate produce 10,000 cars per year, with 1,300 jobs.

For the time being, it was the employees of the Faraday design office who began to invest the premises. Nearly 400 of them came to the spot to attend the announcement, and finally see this production tool very concrete …
Faraday is not LeEco

The new boss Stefan Krause took the opportunity to distance himself with LeEco and Jia Yueting. According to him, the disappearance of LeEco will not entail that of Faraday. History to reassure both employees and prospective investors sought. It is that the loan obtained to rent this factory is only the beginning. Faraday still has to find several hundred million to start production.

Chinese group Youngman

In China, we often speak of a new brand. More rarely are marks that disappear, for they never totally die. This is not the case with Youngman-Lotus, which was finally declared bankrupt.

The Chinese group Youngman joined forces with Proton in 2006 to acquire production rights in China from several models, including the Proton Gen-2. Youngman mostly gets the right to use the Lotus name. So if the brand name is officially named Youngman, this name does not appear directly, but that of Lotus (Engineered by Lotus) is much more visible. And the manufacturer does not hesitate to stage real Lotus in his communication. But conversations with Proton and Lotus are complicated, and after successfully launching its biggest L5 sedan, Youngman will never launch its SUV T5 …
The zombie is finally dead

Since the end of 2014, the factories have stopped working. But Youngman-Lotus is still officially active. Becoming a zombie builder, like so many others, he made his return in March. Present at the show of Jinhua, he exposes again an electric L3. A hope of return finally aborted, as the Hangzhou court formally declared the bankruptcy of Youngman Lotus Automobiles Co Ltd.

It is not yet clear from this bankruptcy whether the production license, although the most valuable of the manufacturer, could be sold. If this is the case, let’s bet that several buyers will be on the rows. Especially when Beijing indicated no longer want to grant new authorizations.

This bankruptcy should also arrange Geely, the new owner of Lotus, which will thus be able to distribute and / or produce the models of the English manufacturer in China more easily.

Building sites of autonomous cars


Researchers in the US have highlighted a major weakness of deep learning algorithms used in autonomous cars. Not necessarily noted by the drivers, some subtle modifications on the panels can induce the algorithms in error. Potentially catastrophic errors.
Neuronal algorithms, strength and weakness of the autonomous car

One of the major building sites of autonomous cars is the recognition of its environment, vehicles, pedestrian street furniture, and especially road signs. If manufacturers and companies that develop recognition systems do everything to ensure that they are as accurate as possible, others seek (for the good cause) to trap systems by complex means. Or, as here, means so childish that it is worrying.

Eight researchers from four American universities have combined their efforts to deceive deep learning algorithms of autonomous vehicles. Indeed, at present, neural networks are used which learn by experience to recognize the panels. For this purpose, the algorithm is given a base of classified images representing different panels at different angles, light, wear, etc. Once the learning is done, the algorithm is supposed to be able to manage in all situations, even those to which it was not directly confronted during the learning.
Slight changes, unfortunate consequences

For the experiment, the researchers took a “classical” classification algorithm and moved the learning phase on a limited basis of only 17 panels. Each panel is present in the learning database between 92 and 500 times for a total of nearly 4600 images of panels.

The researchers have planned several “attacks” to deceive the recognition algorithm. The first is to reproduce a panel (Stop in this case) by applying subtle modifications (of colors for example). This false sign is totally readable by a human eye that will no doubt notice the variations of colors but will read STOP well. However, the algorithm tested systematically crashes and sees a limitation board at 45 mph. Worse, the algorithm is totally self-confident, more than 70% in virtually all cases. The car would certainly not stop.

The second attack is substantially the same. But here, a “turn right” sign is partially covered. Only the arrow is covered with a degraded checkerboard. The gradient is made in such a way that the 90 ° angle of the arrow is disturbed. The rest of the panel is not altered and it is totally recognizable … for a human. On the other hand, for the algorithm, it is transformed into a panel STOP or in “added line”. If the “line added” panel is understood (it is a yellow sign with two arrows instead of one) because of the disturbing gradient, the STOP panel seems rather unclear. However, the algorithm is still pretty sure of it (between 40 and 50%).
Simple stickers

The first two attacks assume that there is a will to harm (or that the panels are really degraded!). But, the two other attacks are, unfortunately, concrete cases that one meets in reality. Indeed, the third attack consists of affixing stickers (here LOVE and HATE) that disrupt the reading of the panel. For a human, the main message “STOP” is not altered. But, again, the algorithm is mistaken beyond a certain distance. At close range, it recognizes the panel STOP but with a rather weak confidence, or a hesitation between two possibilities.

The last attack is even more common since it involves affixing black or white stickers on the panels. These stickers of advertising or “art” come to blur the reading of the algorithm. The latter is mistaken in 100% of the cases, recognizing a limitation to 45. It should be noted, however, that the second hypothesis is often the STOP panel.
Improvements for autonomous cars

Obviously, the goal of the researchers is not to demonstrate that the autonomous vehicle is dangerous. They seek to point out possible weaknesses to improve it. They intend to carry out other tests with new disturbances that one can meet every day.
