KOENIGSEGG: A 2 + 2 HYBRID CALLED KG12 AT THE GENEVA FAIR 2020? – Auto Sport

[ad_1]

Among other things, Koenigsegg would prepare a 2 + 2 hybrid model called KG12 for the next Geneva show.

Over the rumors, Koenigsegg's program for the Geneva 2020 show seems to be getting clearer, and it could be loaded. Thus, after the noises of hallway evoking a concept car named Mission 500, the site The Supercar Blog says to have heard of a 2 + 2 seater supercar which would bear the name KG12. It could be a provisional designation.

The KG12 would be hybrid. The sources of the site would announce under the hood a three-cylinder petrol engine of 2L of displacement using the FreeValve technology of Koenigsegg to dispense with camshaft. Electric motor (s) included, the total power would be around 1,500hp. The bulk of the power could therefore come from the electrical part.

Original concept, familiar design?

The KG12 would display an instantly recognizable design with, among

Huawei poses a threat to NATO – Strategies

Mark Esper, the Minister of Defense, warned of the threat that the Chinese equipment supplier would pose to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the military alliance between Europe and the United States.

The American Minister of Defense warned Europeans on Saturday that by authorizing the Chinese telecoms equipment supplier Huawei to build 5G networks, they risked " threaten "NATO. " Failure to understand and respond to the threat could ultimately threaten what has been the most successful military alliance in history, NATO Said Mark Esper at the Munich security conference.

Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered: the Swedish hybrid that is not cold in the eyes – Clean Car

[ad_1]

Volvo is completing the conversion of its entire range to the plug-in hybrid. The S60 family sedan quite logically takes over the T8 engine already widely available. But it also adds a Polestar Engineered version, which claims a handful of additional horses and a sporty temperament.

The Volvo S60 is a testament to the ambitions of the Geely group, its Chinese owner, for the Swedish brand. On the one hand, because its launch coincides with the start-up of a brand new American factory, located in Ridgeville, South Carolina. But also because, in Europe, it is only available with rechargeable hybrid engines. In the press release, Volvo boasted that it no longer offered diesel on its family sedan, presenting this as a gesture for the environment. But we will not be fooled. Already because the greener side of a plug-in hybrid engine, and even a gasoline engine compared to a diesel remains to be demonstrated. Also and above all, this corresponds to a

At Murray Hill, Nokia promotes 5G under the seal of the “Bell Labs” – Les Échos

On a box, the articulated arm of a robot deposits a phantom piece, remotely guided by orders from a 4G telecom network. The demonstrator activates the 5G network: the arm stops an instant earlier than before, avoiding crossing the line which could endanger the operator.

In Murray Hill (New Jersey), an hour's drive from New York, the “Future X Lab” serves as a showcase to show industrialists and operators the “use cases” of a technology now at the heart of technological battle between the United States and China.

Reduce latency

If the phone manufacturers are starting to offer a few models adapted to 5G that could appeal to consumers by reducing download times, shortening latency times and improving the reliability of the information transmitted are the selling points to conquer businesses.

The best way to cook a steak

[ad_1]

In 1988, my parents bought their first cooking thermometer.

They were at the Huntington butcher's shop on Long Island, and the butcher in the white jacket they were chatting with was speechless when they learned they didn't have one. They had just bought a New York strip, a piece of meat prepared in the heart of the rib eye, a little expensive for young journalists who were still paying off their student loans, and they were afraid of spoiling it. So they asked him what was the best way to cook their meat.

"Sear it on the barbecue until it is cooked through", he said, insisting on a reference temperature that they should respect. Then, seeing their crumbling mines, he added: "Don't tell me you don't have a kitchen thermometer … You really don't have a kitchen thermometer ?!" He

Quebecers bought more Acura NSX than Fiat 500X! – The Car Guide

[ad_1]

It may sound amazing, but it is true. When we look at the sales figures for new vehicles in 2019, six Quebecers bought the superbolide signed Acura, and only three motorists opted for the small Fiat 500X SUV.

And you guessed it, the fact that Acura sold six NSXs makes a lot of sense considering its high price ($ 192,895). In addition, the number of customers able to afford these types of vehicles is not very large.

However, when we see that Fiat has sold only three 500X throughout Quebec, it's rather worrying for the manufacturer's survival in the long term. Especially since it’s a small SUV, a popular category for buyers.

For comparison, Hyundai sold 11,429 copies of the Kona, Honda 5,036 units of the HR-V and Mazda 4,911 models of the CX-3 in 2019.

Why Tesla is also pushing the limits on the stock market – La Tribune

[ad_1]

Trees don't go up to the sky … And yet Tesla is on the march to prove the contrary. The Californian automaker founded by Elon Musk crossed in early February thresholds of market capitalization which propelled it into the stratosphere of the automotive sector. Monday February 3, Tesla was listed for $ 140 billion … Or the valuation of Volkswagen, Renault and PSA combined! In other words, from the top of its 360,000 cars sold in 2019, the company founded by Elon Musk was worth as much as the 18 million cars built by these three automotive groups. And yet Tesla is still unprofitable over an entire fiscal year. In 2019, only the third quarter was profitable. What are the driving forces behind this extraordinary stock market dynamic?

Tech value?

There is little debate around Tesla's innovative strength. "Everything is cutting-edge technology at Tesla, from software updates to batteries that resist extre

Gerard Williams III, who worked under the direct authority of Johnny Srouji, the chief architect of the Ax processors, said that Apple had tried to prevent Nuvia from recruiting engineers from Cupertino, while also trying to poach employees of his start-up.

Apple's complaint is intended to "Stifle the creation of new technologies and solutions by new companies and reduce the freedom of entrepreneurs to seek more fulfilling work", writes Gerard Williams in a document given to the California court.

Nuvia's goal is
