Fiat finally finds the answer to the missing puzzle, an age old deficiency on the part of the retro design company. The resilience and authenticity of this brand has geared up and taken the bull by the horn this year by defying its own conventions in the design of the luxury two seat roadster, the 124 spider. This elegant beauty carries a touch of romance well submerged in sporty confidence
The Fiat brand can be rated amongst retro design labels, since its inception in the spider early 1960’s till date. The brand has hovered around, producing diverse designs but never a two-seater. The 124 spider is expected to cost below or as much as $60,000
The design for the spider is inspired by a fourth generation Mazda, the MX-5 Miata. The similarities are uncanny but the disparities are yet tremendous starting from the exterior where the fiat adds a few extra inches to its length, the Mazda has a sleek slim rear while the fiat a bulky facial structure. The fiat features 150 hp and 184 pound-ft of torque while the Mazda lags at 155 hp and 148 pound-ft of torque. The spider also controls a 6-speed manual, this doesn’t fully utilize the torque abilities but it is a much fun riding experience compared to the Mazda. The fiat also comes with a few interesting features in the interior such as heated seats, and a 7-inch infotainment system. The fuel consumption isn’t bad at 26/city 35/ highway for manual and 25/city 36/highway for automatic. You could also decide to go for custom upgrades such as blind spot and backup camera, basically anything that suits your taste.
The Fiat spider comes with a defiantly aesthetic look which catches the eyes. It is definitely a worthy addition to the family.
“Green” is the new color of electricity as Volkswagen introduces its newest Eco-friendly addition to the family. A fusion of an electricity powered concept with a retro 60’s microbus design. This electric vehicle can be referred to as a microbus styled Volkswagen (MPV). After a long wait the volks brand has finally given automobile fans and collectors what they want. Volkswagen is known for its most popular design, “the Beetle” which was the trend in the slinging 60’s so on going back to a design such as the microbus which is just as retro as the beetle could be considered as “fanning the flame,” A risk that came with an irresistible innovation and simply gorgeous finishes.
Presently the electric bus has a recharge time of about 80% after 30 minutes this means a very convenient power-up time. There is no reserved compartment for the engine nor a gas tank as it runs on battery which is located at a low compartment just near the tires. The microbus is the first of its kind for the Volkswagen brand and harbors extensive controversies on the possibilities of being inducted into the public roads; this will greatly depend on the amount of technological alternatives it can carry in order to ensure safety and durability. The assumed time frame on the official induction or mass production of the vehicle is estimated to be the year 2021 or 2022. This time would be needed for further testing and application of new technology to further improve on efficiency.
The production version will be charged to produce 369 hp and will likely be powered by a 111 kwh battery. The Volkswagen microbus, on production would also act as an eco-friendly alternative to automobile fuel pollution and help to conserve a cleaner environment
We are undoubtedly approaching an age of technology where programming is quintessential and everything we can imagine will somehow be programmed by a computer one way or the other. This is good news in so many ways for so many industries. Accuracy, efficiency and speed- all will rise significantly with the help of programming and this ‘holy’ intervention of technology is promised to change the way our world rotates.
What about automobile industries though? This is where self-driving cars come in to play. We have long seen these cars in movies as fantasies- take for example the knight rider. Who would have known that this fantasy would one day be an inevitable route that the automobile industry must take. No one I suppose! But the reality is that self-driving cars are already there in the market if not commercially.
What are the advantages? So many! The risks of accidents are reduced as computers are well known for precision. Humans can relax on their everyday journeys. What next? To be honest I cannot think of anything more. However, tons of disadvantages swirl inside my head. Computers cannot always be trusted! Not with your life no! Also we can become vulnerable to hacking- imagining kidnappers hacking cars and driving our children to their den!
I know I am being pessimist, but its these movies that embedded in my head these ideas. Terminator- we all saw that one and the recent Fast and the Furious movie also have some message for self-driving.
To be completely honest-the amount of self-driving cars in the market are insufficient to make any proper comment. The fate of this foggy, yet there’s hope for greatness. I deeply believe that in future we will overcome the anticipated disadvantages with our sharp intelligence and perseverance. Let us just hope for the best.
