Brain Teasers

The 2022 Lucid Air tops all electric vehicles with an EPA-rated 520-mile range, the EPA confirmed on Thursday. That’s at least 100 miles more than the next longest range electric vehicle, the Tesla Model S Long Range that has an EPA-rated 405-mile range. 

The 2022 Lucid Air has the most range of any electric vehicle ever, and its 113-kwh battery pack might be the most efficient ever. Lucid says its flagship sedan can recover 20 miles of range per minute of DC fast-charging at a peak rate of 300 kw, and that it can charge up to 300 miles of EPA range in just 20 minutes, quicker than any Tesla model or the Porsche Taycan or any other EV on the market. 

It was less than a decade ago that most analysts pegged 200 miles as the electric vehicle range that would get shoppers over range anxiety—the fear they’d run out of juice before arriving at their destination—and foster the mass adoption of electric vehicles. That’s the stated mission of Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk, and the new range toppers reflect the progress made by innovation and decreasing per-kwh battery costs. The first mass-produced electric vehicle, the Nissan Leaf launched for 2011, had a 73-mile range.

Apt Testaccio is a lovely apartment located in Rome, Italy, redesigned in 2021 by MGK Studio.

Located in the Testaccio district in a building of the early ‘900, between the Lungotevere and the Slaughterhouse, the apartment overlooks almost entirely on the plane trees and the river, creating a different scenario in every season. The restructuring has focused on the redefinition of services and a new general concept to make the environments more functional and adherent to the needs of the new client.

The interior design maintains the original conformation marked by load-bearing masonry and develops from a distributive filter, apparently treated in a neutral, silent way that actually welcomes the natural light and color coming from neighboring environments, animating in a different way depending on the position of the sun and the time of day.

The intervention began with the restoration of the vaults, the restoration of the frames of the fixtures and the recovery of the original painting in the dining room, bringing to light the ancient lambris.

The spaces are marked by a game of warm and cold tones: green for the guest bathroom, rope for the linear and modern kitchen made to design, crimson red for the living room and light blue for the master bedroom suite. Light filters into all the rooms thanks to the high iron and glass doors that further enhance the space and the contrast with the other materials. Contrast that is repeated also for the horizontal surfaces – parquet, resin and grit – and for the furniture – ranging from designed volumes to vintage furniture, from antiques to contemporary design objects – contributing to create an eclectic and welcoming atmosphere.

Liscia di Vacca is a bay, located a couple miles northwest of the seaside resort of Porto Cervo, on the Costa Smeralda in the northwest of the island of Sardinia, Italy.

In the local language, its name means “beach of the cows,” because it is where the shepherds used to bring their flocks to pasture. It is now a well-known residential site, famous for huge villas, where Italian and international wealthy people spend their summer vacations.

Joby plans to launch its all-electric aircraft in 2024. .Joby Aviation

Air taxi startup Joby Aviation has officially become the first U.S.-based eVTOL company to be publicly traded.

Founder and CEO JoeBen Bevirt was at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday to ring the bell, signaling a start of the day’s trading and the company’s launch into the stock market.

“Aviation connects the world in critically important ways but today it does that at the expense of our planet,” Bevirt said Wednesday morning. “By taking Joby public, we have the opportunity to drive a renaissance in aviation, making emissions-free flight a part of everyday life. This is our generation’s moonshot moment, and at Joby we’re proud to be leaning in.”

Joby is now listed as “JOBY” and “JOBY WS.”

This Santa Cruz, California-based company, which launched in 2009, joins the ranks of China-based competitor EHang in the quest to find solutions toward zero-emission aviation. Competitors Lilium and Archer have also announced their own plans to go public in the future.

Wednesday’s listing was made possible through a reverse merger with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), Reinvent Technology Partners (RTP). The deal is valued at $6.6 billion.

Reid Hoffman, LinkedIn co-founder and co-lead director of RTP, said Wednesday, “We believe Joby is ‘Tesla meets Uber in the air’ and the clear leader in the eVTOL and aerial ridesharing space. We believe Joby is well-positioned with capital to be the first company to certification and commercialization. Closing this business combination accelerates Joby’s roadmap, and we look forward to supporting JoeBen and Joby’s world-class team in executing on their vision.”

A new generation of the raucous Audi RS 3 compact sedan has arrived for 2022, and it promises even more fun and performance. To demonstrate the latter, Audi had racing and development driver Frank Stippler take the car around the Nürburgring for a hot lap.

He ended up with a blistering best time of 7:40.748, which puts the newest RS 3 in a similar league to cars like the 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The Audi has some advantages, though. While its 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 only delivers 401 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, which is less than what the aforementioned sports cars have, the RS 3 also benefits from a quick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, sophisticated all-wheel-drive system, and, in this test, the available Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R semi-slicks.

In May 2020, Tecnam announced the pending certification of the update to the P2010 series, the P2010TDI. With a 170-hp Continental CD-170 engine up front, the version offers an option for pilots who want the ability to operate on diesel or Jet-A. At EAA AirVenture 2021, the company announced the availability of the four-seat, metal-and-carbon-fiber composite single. The 215-hp original P2010 runs on avgas and remains available, as well as the 180-hp powerplant that uses unleaded automotive fuel. Up front, the P2010 hosts a Garmin G1000 NXi integrated flight deck and a GFC 700 autopilot.

The diesel version burns an average of 5.2 gph according to the company, with a 1,000-nm range (with 63 gallons of usable fuel on board), at about 130 ktas. Continental has delivered more than 6,000 of the 170 hp engine, with more than 1.7 million hours logged in service.

Tecnam also announced the availability of its latest update to the P92 Echo, the MkII, with an increased useful load of 610 pounds in the new version—which was blessed under EASA regulations last fall.

The company featured a much-expanded presence at AirVenture, with a 12,000-sq-ft display area and new members of the team to promote sales and customer service in the US. Industry veteran David Copeland has been named Director of Sales, and Ben Coleman is the new chief operating officer.

House EB is a contemporary residence located Bolzano, Italy, designed in 2020 by Monovolume Architecture + Design.

On the hills on the south-west side of the province of Bolzano, along the renowned wine route, amidst vineyards and small forests, one can admire original private villas built in recent years.

In the 1950s and 1960s, after the Second World War, many citizens moved from the city center to these hills to enjoy greater peace and an exclusive view of the surrounding peaks.

This is the scenery in which Villa EB is set. Villa EB is a semi-detached residence created after a complex renovation of a old villa built in the early 1960s. Although the previous residence had high living standards and it was built with top-quality materials and finishes, it however showed all the limitations of a house designed according to the canons of the time, for example: a very closed envelope, with a very low ratio between glass surfaces and solid walls, with few views of the landscape and very low ceilings.

Issy-les-Moulineaux (French pronunciation: ​[isi le mulino]) is a commune in the southwestern suburban area of Paris, France, lying on the left bank of the river Seine. It is one of Paris’ entrances and is located 6.6 km (4.1 mi) from Notre-Dame Church, which is considered Kilometre zero of France. On 1 January 2010, Issy-les-Moulineaux became part of the Grand Paris Seine Ouest agglomeration community, which merged into the Métropole du Grand Paris in January 2016.

Issy-les-Moulineaux has successfully moved its economy from an old manufacturing base to high value-added service sectors and is at the heart of the Val de Seine business district, the largest cluster of telecommunication and media businesses in France hosting the headquarters of most major French TV networks.

Jeep isn’t about to let the Ford Bronco Sport step on its turf without fighting back.

Jeep unveiled the redesigned 2022 Compass at the Chicago Auto Show on Wednesday. The small SUV with on-road charm and off-road capability features larger screens, new technology, standard active safety technology, and a more refined design inside and out than the outgoing model. It looks to steal some of the swagger from the upstart 2021 Ford Bronco Sport introduced this year to popular acclaim in the booming compact crossover segment.  

Changes to the exterior of the 2022 Compass will take a keen eye to spot, but the small, subtle tweaks add up to a more refined look. The front bumper’s updated with slimmer LED headlights resting above a new seven-slot grille design similar to the larger three-row 2021 Grand Cherokee L and 2022 Wagoneer. In back there are updated LED taillights.
