BMW i8 Research


The BMW i8 is a highly unique two-door sports coupe or roadster.

With the i8, BMW looks at the future of the supercar and recasts it for an energy-conscious age. The i8 sports a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine shared with the Mini lineup, and combines it with batteries and electric motors for a total output of 357 horsepower.

Its lightweight construction and all-wheel-drive system serves two masters: near-sportscar performance with relatively low energy consumption. It does either task in equal turns, if that’s what you’re into.

The 2019 model year brings a new Spyder model to the lineup and a slightly larger battery with a small boost to overall power. The convertible model sports a small retractable-hardtop panel for open-air driving.

About a third of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles sold aren’t cars at all. They’re crossover SUVs, and it’s hard to imagine that Mercedes could have expected it when its M-Class hit the road about two decades ago.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB250 that bowed Monday expands the automaker’s current crossover SUV lineup to six models, and yet it has plenty in common with the original M-Class that arrived in 1997. The new GLB stretches about 182 inches from bumper to bumper and measures about 72 inches wide, figures nearly identical to the M-Class (and considerably smaller than the GLE that traces its lineage back to the ML320).

  • DescriptionThe iconic appearance of a spiral galaxy is exemplified here in the form of the stunning NGC 2903, imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. It shows off whirling, pinwheeling arms with scatterings of sparkling stars, glowing bursts of gas, and dark, weaving lanes of cosmic dust.NGC 2903 is located about 30 million light-years away in the constellation of Leo (The Lion), and was studied as part of a Hubble survey of the central regions of roughly 145 nearby disc galaxies. This study aimed to help astronomers better understand the relationship between the black holes that lurk at the cores of galaxies like these, and the rugby-ball-shaped bulge of stars, gas, and dust at the galaxy’s centre — such as that seen in this image.

    This image was first published on 29 April 2019.

The industry-leading quality and efficiency of Airbus’ A320 Family – of which the A321 is a member – has been further enhanced with its new engine option (NEO) jetliner versions. For the A321neo, Airbus expanded seating capacity with optimised use of cabin space, increased exit limits and a new cabin door configuration. This “Cabin-Flex” option increased the jetliner’s maximum capacity to 244 seats, while still providing high levels of passenger comfort.
