    So after finally hoping on the Facebook-bandwagon, we decided to check up on how Mallory McMorrow’s Mazda3 concept was coming along.

    After shaping and molding the clay on the LA show floor for over 10 days, the 2018 Mazda3 was finally displayed. Overall, it’s cues tie in nicely with the “flow” theme crafted by Franz von Holzhausen and his team who helped McMorrow hone her design.

    We think it’s a step in the right direction, particularly from an undergrad, and we’re hopeful that the 21-year old industrial design student hits the ground running once she has her degree in hand.

    F1 NEW GENERATION in 2010 has Totally Change

    F1 NEW GENERATION in 2010 has Totally ChangeF1 NEW GENERATION in 2010 has Totally Change
    For economizing reason and for increasing competition violent delivers among all teams, FIA as highest motorsport federation in the world launches new regulation for race in next season of F1 2010. in the beginning race season 2010 there are no F1 racer entering pit-stop for fuel filling. So they enter pit just for change tyre or repair. because of this new regulation, rule of about minimum heavy limit of car is even also added for 15kg to be 620kg. this regulation is apparently simple and really ever done in past 1994, but with engine that is decried up to 2400 cc from 3000 cc and configuration V from 10 to be 8 now must economical without filling fuel up to around 300km (average every series go through 300km). of course it needs cost not little by each team to redesign their car. in other side, change by change in every year is so much, include this year that applying KERS as new design and unfortunately, it was cancelled to be used because assumed, it will load more vehicle weight.

    see following f1 engine facts:
    - every litre can only go through for average 1.5 km (75 litre/100 km)
    - every cylinder is limitted for the valve total (max 4 valve)
    - RPM is limitted only until 18,000 rpm
    - engine materials (including inside part) is limitted only from iron and alumunium
    - energy produced must be 700 up to 780 hp (v8 2400 cc)
    - velocity: 0 - 100 km/hour: 1.7 second
    0 - 200 km/hour: 3.8 second
    0 - 300 km/hour: 8.6 second
    - speed maximum recorded Monza, Italian 360 km/hour
    - braking from 100 - 0 km/hour (till stop) only 17 m away
    - the fact is like told above but the technology that is demanded is even also tighter. Engine is decried and limitted but cost estimation and fuel even also depressed. this development is surely not economizing for all teams

    With Bluetec diesel variants of its available luxury SUVs, Mercedes-Benz said that diesels are now ambient as clean as gasoline engines, while providing great couple Americans like, with greater fuel economy than SUVs comparable gasoline-fueled. Having taken the latest Bluetec 320 ml, GL and R models,
    All models share the combination of diesel and automatic seven-speed of 3.0 liters. For ‘09, AdBlue - an aqueous solution of urea in the 28 aboard - the tank of 32 liters - is injected into the exhaust treaty, which operates through a converter, reducing nitrogen proteolyses nitrogen and water harmless. The reservoir is completed AdBlue level as part of routine maintenance. Mercedes is the first manufacturer to save diesel SUVs from 50 states.
    The only diesel indices are discrete insignia on Bluetec shocks front and rear doors. When you push the button ML320’s, there’s no thrill, vibration or rattling. The engineers have paid particular attention to the fight against noise high-pressure injection system and the isolation of the vibration with the body and the rotation of the engine mount.
    These vehicles are great couple, possession 398 pound-feet between 1600 and 2400 rpm. The engine is rated at 210 horsepower at 3800 rpm, and with the tachometer dial marked in widely spaced increments of 200 rpm; each marker bears the great weight.

    USA Government Set to Loan Billions to Ford, Tesla, and Nissan
    Ford will receive $5.9 Billion in low interest loans from the US Govt Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program (ATVMLP). The funding will go towards transforming factories in Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio to produce 13 more fuel efficient models. Tesla ($465 million) and Nissan ($1.6 billion) were also approved to receive some of the low-interest loans.

    From the DOE press release:
    Ford Motor Company will receive $5.9 billion in loans through 2011 to help finance numerous engineering advances to traditional internal combustion engines and electrified vehicles. In addition, theses loans will help the company convert two truck plants to the production of cars. Ford will be raising the fuel efficiency of more than a dozen popular models, including the Focus, Escape, Taurus and F-150, representing close to two million new vehicles annually and helping to transform nearly 35,000 employees to green engineering and manufacturing jobs in factories across 5 states: Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio. Ford is driving a major upgrade, leveraging a portfolio of technologies, including the direct injection, smart turbocharging EcoBoost engine, advanced transmissions, and new hybrid technologies.
    The facilities that will be impacted by today’s announcement include: Chicago Assembly, Louisville Assembly, Dearborn Assembly, Dearborn Engine, Livonia Transmission, Michigan Assembly, Van Dyke Transmission, Kansas City Assembly, Cleveland Engine, Lima Engine, and Sharonville Transmission.
    GM and Chrysler were told their finances have to improve before they can receive any loans from the government's program to loan billions to retool factories in order to make more fuel efficient vehicles. The program was set up by Bush before the TARP program began.
    The car companies at the time wanted the loan program, but said the funds would not be available in time to help them survive. Thus, the loans that GM and Chrysler eventually took which allowed them to survive for a few months more before going into bankruptcy.

    Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally released this statement on the government loan program:
    "Ford Motor Company is proud to be among the first automakers deemed by the government to be among the best companies with the best technologies in American manufacturing and fuel efficiency. This green partnership between Ford and the U.S. government will help accelerate the development of advanced technologies for even better fuel efficiency and emissions. Ford is absolutely committed to fuel economy leadership with every new model we introduce. In fact, we plan to invest nearly $14 billion in advanced technology vehicles in the next seven years. Our partnership with the Department of Energy also will help retool our U.S. plants more quickly to produce fuel efficient vehicles and help meet the new, rigorous fuel-economy requirements."
    Ford anticiaptes they will begin repaying the loans back in 2012.

    The LUXURY New Ford Fusion 2010

    The LUXURY New Ford Fusion 2010The LUXURY New Ford Fusion 2010
    Ever since the Ford Taurus died its slow, painful death, Ford has been struggling to replace it with a competitive entry in the midsize-sedan arena, with little success. For a struggling domestic automaker, the midsize sedan market can mean huge sales and a path toward recovery -- should it get the formula right. With that in mind, the Blue Oval has released details of its all-new 2010 Ford Fusion -- a car that will go head-to-head with the best in the business from Toyota, Honda, and Chevrolet.
    The most immediate difference between new and old is in the styling department. A gargantuan love-it-or-hate-it three-bar chrome grille sits out front, while a more aggressive-looking lower air intake is flanked by two (much larger) foglamps. We like the sharp, angular look to the headlights that transform the Fusion away from the model's current, rather mundane appearance.
    Powering the new Fusion will be a range of I-4 and V-6 engines. Expect an all-new 2.5L inline-four to provide power in the base model, cranking out 172 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and allowing a 9.5-sec sprint from 0-to-60 mph. The engine features a new block, pistons, heads, crankshaft, connecting rods, and camshaft -- all in an effort to make more power, while reducing emissions and increasing fuel economy. According to Ford, the new I-4 will have more power than the four-cylinder Toyota Camry, while besting economy levels set by the Camry and the Honda Accord.
    Next up the food chain is the midlevel Fusion with a 3.0L V-6 good for 240 hp (250 hp in E85 spec) that knocks 2.5 sec off the 0-to-60-mph run, dropping it to 7.0 sec flat. We don't have fuel-economy figures yet, but Ford is integrating an "aggressive" fuel shut-off program on deceleration.
    The top-level 2010 Fusion Sport will feature a 3.5L Duratec V-6 (the same unit used in the Flex) that will curiously offer the same output as the 3.0L unit -- 240 hp. Ford did not give us details on the torque rating for that unit, but we speculate it may be considerably more than the 3.0L motor. Ford also wouldn't give us any acceleration figures on that top-level engine, but did note that all-wheel drive would be available with the 3.0L and 3.5L six-cylinder engine options.

    Eliica, NEW Eight Wheels Car SPORT

    Eliica, NEW Eight Wheels Car SPORT
    Tokyo - four caster agent is identic with a car and agent added than four caster is identic with truck. but eight caster car now additionally there.
    Eliica, NEW Eight Wheels Car SPORT
    Eliica is a name of the advocate car from japanese.
    The Eliica (or the Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is a array electric agent prototype, or abstraction car advised by a aggregation at Keio University in Tokyo, led by Professor Hiroshi Shimizu. Eliica runs on a lithium-ion array and can advance from 0–100 km/h (62 mph) in four abnormal (faster than the Porsche 911 Turbo at the time). The team's ambition is to beat 400 km/h (250 mph), breaking the almanac set by today's street-legal gasoline-powered vehicles.

    American Honda Motor Co.. Inc. acquaint the abstraction of action cars of the approaching newest amphitheatre in the Los Angeles Auto Show 2008, California, United States. Abstraction car is called Honda FC Sport. A special, a car that is no best await on machines based on ammunition oil. Instead, the Honda FC will use the hydrogen. This agency that FC will be the Honda car action aught emissions.

    In the car absolute the three-sport seats, the hydrogen from the ammunition corpuscle stack. Furthermore, hydrogen is acclimated to accomplish electricity and stored in the battery. When the car dikebut, electric motor will get absolute accumulation of electricity from the battery.

    So that the achievement of the car was absolutely accept to dikebut, in accession to the bull use of hydrogen, Honda designers booty advantage of the anatomy architecture and aerodynamics mulus. The added access is to actualize and abode a basic of the modular ability cars.

    Therefore, the capital basic of the car with a anxiously placed. The goal, the administration of weight analogously disconnected on the two as wheels, advanced and rear. With that addition, the antithesis of the car steady, calmly manageable, and absorb active twist.

    The position of the two commuter cars additional pengemudinya is additionally unique. Drivers placed in the middle, aloof like Formula 1 car drivers. Two cartage are about alongside with the driver. FC has a roof or awning a cellophane awning that opened up.

    Honda Jazz - Honda Fit MUGEN edition 2009

    Honda Jazz - Honda Fit MUGEN edition 2009
    Though ammunition prices accept gone bottomward a bit over the accomplished few weeks, it seems “fuelish” that consumers would go aback to their big SUV, gas-guzzling ways. If you charge account for bristles in a great, baby package, you should acerb accede the 2009 Honda Fit (known as Honda Jazz).
    Honda Jazz - Honda Fit MUGEN edition 2009The Fit is now in its additional generation, and the 2009 archetypal is all-new. The fresh Fit appearance a “super-forward” architecture that pushes the auto out to the corners, alms a ample autogenous that belies its diminutive exoteric dimensions. A fresh beyond windshield and ample advanced division windows ensure a clear, bare appearance to the front. Ancillary and rear angle are additionally actual acceptable - a assurance affection sometimes disregarded by consumers on ten-minute analysis drives.
    It should additionally be acclaimed that admitting Fit’s baby size, it is a actual safe platform. The addition of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) anatomy anatomy contributes to added assurance and is accumulated with improvements to anatomy acerbity for brittle administration and a decidedly quiet and adequate ride. Expect aerial marks for Fit in U.S. Government and allowance industry blast testing.
    With the trend bottomward in size, abounding consumers anamnesis the canicule back activity “small” meant sacrificing abundance and convenience. But things accept consistently been altered with Honda, as they’ve congenital their acceptability on architecture auto and bunched cars with appearance accomplish aloft their MSRPs. Fit continues this trend with a actual aerial akin of accepted content, behindhand of trim level. On abject models for example, accepted appearance accommodate a abounding aural choice complete arrangement with iPod connectivity, exceptional finishing capacity central and out (like assorted abstracts central and a chrome bankrupt finisher and ancillary axle moldings outside), a angle and telescoping council column, keyless entry, ten cupholders, countless accumulator areas, council caster army audio and cruise controls, six airbags, antilock brakes with cyberbanking brakeforce distribution, and Fit’s “Magic Seat.” Magic Seat is congenital into the 60/40 breach rear bench, and allows the rear seats to be bankrupt collapsed into the attic with the cast of a distinct lever, alike with the advanced seats in their aback position.
    Tall drivers and cartage will get pleasure Fit’s abounding headroom, admitting legroom is expectedly tight. Wide bodies will get pleasure not abrading accoutrements with passengers. Alike at 6’9” and 275 pounds, my analysis drive in the Fit through upstate Fresh York’s arresting area was agreeable and not aloof because of the ample interior. Pushing the Fit’s 1.5-liter i-VTEC four butt was absolute enjoyable. If you opt for the added big-ticket Fit Sport, you can accept a candied alive bristles acceleration chiral with council wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The Fit accelerates smartly, and handles ample anchorage like adventurous cars that amount bags more. Quiet and nimble, active this car won’t account any “fits” of frustration.
    My alone ache about the 2009 Fit is the abridgement of cyberbanking adherence ascendancy on abject models. It’s artlessly not accessible on that trim level. Accept the Fit Sport however, and you get adherence ascendancy standard, as able-bodied as the adeptness to accept alternative
    DVD based, satellite-linked navigation. The 6.5-inch, articulation recognition, blow awning navi arrangement opens to acknowledge PC agenda playback capability, added acceptable audio choices.
    The 2009 Honda Fit is priced amid $14,500 and $18,760 depending on trim levels, manual choices, and whether you accept alternative navigation. Purchasing this able-bodied done alms from Honda could advice accumulate your assets in “fit” condition.
