不用充電樁了 「它」來幫你自動充電!《Volkswagen》推移動充電機器人

在這個電動車越發熱門的時代,比起哪家品牌又出了什麼電動車,你可能更關注有沒有足夠的充電設備、現行的生活環境是否能提供電車資源等等。為此,身為所有Volkswagen集團充電活動與系統的福斯汽車組件團隊(Volkswagen Group Components)推出了一款可移動的電動汽車充電機器人原型。

該款機器人可以通過應用程式或通訊軟體「Car-to-X」進行啟用,啟用後機器人會自行將一旁已充滿電的電池帶至車輛旁,打開充電插座蓋、連接插頭進行充電,充完電後再將電池帶回充電站進行充電,過程中不僅完全不需要人力操控。然而,因為主要移動與連結的機器本體與車輛實際所佔用的充電元件是分開的,因此即使該站點有超過1輛以上的車有充電需求,也不需要排隊等上一台充完才能使用。

不僅如此,充電機器人似乎設有雷達與傳感結構,即使在去程與返航的途中遇到車輛經過也會自行停下,確保任務期間的安全,加上一隻長長的手臂與一雙呆萌的眼睛,真的就像一位盡責可愛的小管家。

充電機器人的出現不僅所佔用的空間較一般充電樁小、無須在各個車位上皆裝設充電站,使充電基礎設施在設置上的門檻更低、更容易,更可以解決車主時常找不到空的電車充電車位、或充電樁被占用的問題,有效解決未來電動汽車越來越多的供電負載問題。

雖然目前該機器人仍處於原型階段,也尚未提供相關的電池容量、充電時間等,但Volkswagen表示計畫於明年初投入開發。

Reviews on the new 2021 Toyota Mirai are starting to roll in, and most people have a lot of good things to say about it.

The original Mirai, which debuted back in 2015, was somewhat of a niche product, more of a proof of concept than anything else. Many people were put off by its lack of fueling infrastructure and expensive cost, if the unusual styling hadn’t gotten to them first. This left most wondering why they just wouldn’t buy a battery-electric vehicle (BEV) instead. That’s what Toyota aims to fix with the new Mirai, and from the looks of it, it seems to be working.

The main complaints of the original Mirai, aside from the fueling concerns, mostly seemed to stem from the fact that it was not premium enough for its steep price tag. It appeared to have more in common with a Prius than an Lexus, despite the price being in the ballpark of the latter. Thankfully, the new Mirai, which is based on a shortened version version of the Lexus LS platform, is much more stylish and well appointed than its predecessor, as well as more spacious.

Another big selling point of the new Mirai comes in the form of it now being rear-wheel drive, and the only rear-wheel drive hydrogen vehicle for sale at that. Albeit a primarily functional change to better accommodate the fuel cells, it helps the Mirai further distance itself from the “overpriced economy car” reputation the first generation had taken on, as well as justifying its $49,500 base price.

Initial driving impressions seems to be positive. Despite the Mirai only having 182 hp (185 PS / 136 kW) and 221 lb-ft (309 Nm) of torque, it’s actually the most powerful hydrogen vehicle on sale today. The reviewer notes a similar driving experience to a lot of BEVs in the sense of its low-end torque, combined with the balanced handling characteristics of some gasoline-powered vehicles in the sense of its weight distribution.

It’s not going to do 0-60 faster than you can blink or set any lap times out on a track, but its certainly enough for motoring around town. And that’s exactly where this car shines. Its primary goal is to be a comfortable, eco-friendly cruiser that delivers all the environmental benefits of a BEV, while also solving the issues of range anxiety and long refueling times (with up to 402 miles of range, and a similar refueling time to gasoline). And at that, at least in reviewers’ eyes, it seems to succeed.

The biggest weakness/limitation of the Mirai is its accessibility. Should you want to purchase one, at least in the United States, you can only do so in only two out of 50 states (California, and Hawaii, and only in Oahu), and even then, the fueling networks in those areas is paltry, even more so than a lot of electric charging stations. However, as mentioned before, if you do have access to fueling, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue given the Mirai’s range.

The exterior design of the A90 Toyota Supra may have rubbed a few people the wrong way since its unveiling, but what if someone decided to make it way edgier?

The renderings you’re looking at come from the Flat Hat 3D Studio, a SEMA award-winning design and concept shop. They depict a Supra that isn’t just ready to face the apocalypse but also has go-anywhere off-roading abilities and, thanks to its bulletproof exterior, could keep any occupants safe. So, apart from rockets and machine guns, it sounds like it has what it takes to be the Dark Knight’s next Batmobile, doesn’t it?

While one might argue that some of the sharp angles that make up the exterior do have a resemblance to those of the Cybertruck, direct inspiration was in fact taken from the Karlmann King, the world’s most expensive SUV that was unveiled by Chinese company IAT back in early 2018.

The front end of the car has very little in common with a standard Supra, other than the basic shape of the hood and the pointed nose. Moreover, the headlights have also been ditched and replaced with thin LED units. The sides of the car are particularly striking and reveal a set of massive wheels with off-road rubber and flared, squared-off wheel arches.

It is the rear of the concept, though, that is perhaps our favorite aspect, thanks to the sharp taillights and LED light bar featured.
