There’s only one Porsche Cayenne convertible in the world

There’s only one Porsche Cayenne convertible in the world

Cayenne convertible

You might be surprised to hear that SUVs have convertibles, but they actually existed.

Perhaps many people remember the Range Rover Yvork Convertible, but Nissan also made the Murano Convertible.

By the way, do you know that Porsche was trying to make a Cayenne convertible?

There may still be countless cars in Porsche’s warehouse that have fallen asleep without seeing the light of the world.

This time, it is the story of “Kaien Convertible,” which contained Porsche’s dream.

Porsche refused to make the SUV the same when making the Cayenne.

It is a Porsche that used its own engine and added its own body setting when it was co-developed with Volkswagen under the name of “Project Colorado.”

And Porsche was envisioning three variants immediately after the release of Cayenne.

The first is the coupe, the second is the version that added the audience after increasing the body of Cayenne by 20cm, and the last is the convertible version that is introduced this time.

The Cayenne convertible was not discarded on the spot, but was actually produced.

What we’re introducing on this page is a package functional model, called PFM for short.

The exhibition can be held only when the body of the car is actually seen, so it was made by roughly improving the existing Kaien.

So the roof was changed to fabric, but it is impossible to drive safely because the body is not reinforced. So a separate truck was mobilized when traveling long distances.

Cayenne Convertible reminds me of Cayenne Coupe at first glance.

Of course, the Kaien Coupé came to reality quite a while later, but the Kaien Coupé, which only has a first-row door, which is 20cm longer than before, also gives a different feeling.

What’s unique is that the back is divided into two, because there were disagreements about the design until this time.

This was made to evaluate the left and right alternately to find out which side is the back that suits the Cayenne Coupe.

How does the roof of the Cayenne convertible fold? Surprisingly, the Porsche 911 Targa, which is currently on sale, is similar in how it works.

Cayenne Convertible has a rollover bar behind the second row for passenger safety in case of rollover.

The cloth roof moves to the back of the rollover bar, when some of the structures behind it open and swallow the loop.

And the structure returns to its place and makes an attractive form of background natural.

Unfortunately, the Cayenne convertible did not lead to mass-production.

If mass production had started, the problem of body stiffness would have been solved.

However, doubts remained about the lack of profitability and whether it would look as attractive as Porsche’s other models, leaving it straight to the warehouse.

As a convertible, SUVs were close to a challenge both aesthetically and formally.

It would look strange if you combine a large, heavy body with a half of the top that is made small and cut off the roof.

BMW, electric vehicle iX, etc. recall…Risk of fire due to faulty battery

BMW, electric vehicle iX, etc. recall…Risk of fire due to faulty battery


Global recall measures are expected to continue on BMW’s new electric vehicles iX and i4.

This is because the possibility of a fire caused by a battery defect has been raised.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced on the 1st that it will recall the 2022 BMW i4 e-drive 40, i4 M50, iX x drive 50 and iX M60 after a fire hazard was found.

According to NHTSA, there is a risk of a fire in the vehicle due to damage to the anode plate in the battery cell while charging, and a short circuit of cathode fragments inside the battery.

BMW was already aware of the defect in April.

This is because the i4 e-Drive 40 fire accident occurred in Germany, and the self-investigation found the possibility of battery defects.

Both BMW and NHTSA said no casualties were reported due to the defect.

However, they informed the owners of the vehicles not to drive the car as much as possible until the ▲ recall action ▲ to use an outdoor parking lot to reduce damage in the event of a fire.

Local media reported that the cause and aspect of the BMW recall are similar to last year’s Chevrolet Bolt EV.

In the case of GM, battery defects were discovered shortly after the release of the new bolt in September last year, and as the recall target expanded to the previous generation, it is still suffering from disruptions in production and sales of electric vehicles.

On top of that, during the recall process, the issue of responsibility with LG Energy Solution, a battery re-investigation, emerged.

BMW developed its own batteries, but Samsung SDI and CATL are in charge of mass-production. BMW said it received the battery cell in question from Samsung SDI.

Like the previous Chevrolet Bolt EV case, there is a possibility that a battle with responsibility will occur. 토토사이트

Hyundai Motor Group Unifies ‘Lithium-Ion’ for Eco-friendly Vehicle

Hyundai Motor Group Unifies ‘Lithium-Ion’ for Eco-friendly Vehicle

Hyundai Motor Group

Hyundai Motor Group will unify the names of high-voltage batteries that are used in eco-friendly vehicles such as electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, and hybrid vehicles into lithium-ion batteries.

Hyundai Motor, Kia Motors, and Genesis apologized for using lithium-ion polymer batteries or lithium-ion batteries mixed in price tags and catalogs, and announced that they will unify them into lithium-ion batteries from now on.

Recently, some Kia customers have questioned that the battery name of Niro Electric Vehicle (EV) is marked differently as lithium-ion batteries in the catalog and lithium-ion polymer batteries in the price tag.

Traditionally, where a polymer is added to the electrolyte inside a battery cell, it is classified as lithium-ion polymer battery and where it is a liquid electrolyte, it is classified as lithium-ion battery.

“Liquid electrolytes are used in all high-voltage batteries to meet the performance and durability characteristics required for eco-friendly vehicles,” Hyundai Motor Group said in a customer notice. “There are no cases where a polymer is added as an electrolyte material,” he said. “So, the lithium-ion polymer battery in the past literature is a battery that does not exist virtually from the perspective of eco-friendly vehicles.”

“Nevertheless, the term lithium-ion polymer battery has been used in battery and automotive industries because batteries that contain polymer components in cathode, cathode, and separator are also expressed as lithium-ion polymer batteries in a broad sense,” he said.

Hyundai MotorGroup explained that polymer components are being added to all cells of high-voltage batteries mounted on eco-friendly vehicles of Hyundai Motor, Kia and Genesis, as well as positive, negative and negative. For this reason, Hyundai Motor Group has used a mix of battery names for eco-friendly vehicles.

Hyundai Motor Group added that it will unify lithium-ion batteries in the future to prevent confusion among customers. 안전놀이터

A painful Gausman gap…Toronto loses to Seattle

A painful Gausman gap…Toronto loses to Seattle


The opening of the starting rotation was bigger than I thought.

The Toronto Blue Jays lost the away game 3-8 against the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington on the 8th (Korea Standard Time). The loss resulted in 45 wins and 39 losses. Seattle has 42 wins and 42 losses.

Originally, it was Kevin Gausman’s turn to start the game, but he couldn’t take the mound. He postponed his appearance in the aftermath of a hit on the ankle during a home game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The gap was bigger than I thought. Anthony Banda, an opener, couldn’t hold out the first inning. While catching one out, he allowed two runs with two hits and one walk.

Casey Lawrence also fell short of expectations with seven hits, two home runs and five runs in 22 2/3 innings. Dylan Moore’s homer in the second inning was unlucky. Left fielder Luerdes Guriel Jr. caught it, but the ball hit the glove and jumped over the fence.

The third inning was inexcusable. After one out, he allowed four consecutive hits and allowed four runs. The two-run home run allowed by Carl Rally was painful.

Diego Castillo, who took the mound as the fourth pitcher, pitched well with one hit, one home run, five strikeouts and one run in three innings. However, in the final game of the series, he used the card he had planned to use if Gausman was unable to take the mound. In an interview with local media after the match, coach Charlie Montoyo said Castillo could be re-appointed later in the series.

Seattle starter Marco Gonzalez recorded five wins (9 losses) of the season with eight hits, three runs and two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings. 부산출장마사지

Ioniq 5

Hyundai Motor announced on the 30th (local time) that “Ioniq 5” obtained the highest grade of “Top Safety Pick Plus” in a crash evaluation released by the U.S. Highway Safety Insurance Association (IIHS).

The Ioniq 5 is the first model of Hyundai Motor’s exclusive electric vehicle brand Ioniq. It is the first vehicle to apply Hyundai Motor Group’s electric vehicle platform E-GMP and proved its highest safety in the world’s strictest automobile safety evaluation.

IIHS is a non-profit organization founded in 1959. Every year, the company comprehensively evaluates the crash safety performance and collision prevention performance of vehicles released in the U.S. market and announces the results. Vehicles with the highest safety are given a TSP+ rating, and vehicles with good performance are given a TSP rating.

In order to receive the TSP rating, the highest grade in all six crash safety items, including △ Driver’s Small Overlap △ Passenger’s Small Overlap △ Front Crash △ Side Crash △ Roof Stiffness △ Headge, etc., must be ‘good’.

In addition, a rating of ‘advanced’ or higher in the front collision prevention system test (vehicle and vehicle and vehicle and pedestrian) and a rating of ‘acceptable’ or higher in the headlamp evaluation shall be obtained.

The TSP+ rating shall be based on a rating above good in the headlamp assessment of the full specification, not on the above conditions.

Ioniq 5 received the highest grade in all six collision safety item evaluations, as well as the highest grade in the evaluation of the forward collision prevention system. In the headlamp assessment, all trims were rated good and excellent.

So far, five models have received TSP+ ratings from Hyundai Motor, including the Ioniq 5, “Tucson,” “Santa Fe,” “Palisade” and “Nexo.” The TSP rating is four vehicles: ‘Avante’, ‘Sonata’, ‘Venue’ and ‘Santa Cruz’. 안전놀이터

“The Ioniq 5, which first applied Hyundai Motor Group’s electric vehicle-only platform, proved its highest safety through this result,” a Hyundai Motor official said. “We will continue to make efforts as a brand that puts customer safety first.”

The design of the compact SUV Celtos has changed dramatically

The design of the compact SUV Celtos has changed dramatically


Kia unveiled its internal and external images on the 30th that show the design of “The New Celtos,” a small sports utility vehicle (SUV) in the city center.

The New Celtos is Celtos’ first commercial improvement model in three years since its launch in July 2019.

Since its launch, CELTOS has become an unrivaled powerhouse as a small SUV representing Kia, ranking first in sales in the same market.

Kia explained that among the five attributes of its new design philosophy, Opportunity United (creative fusion of conflicting concepts), it reflected a bold, future-oriented exterior design inspired by “innovative attempts toward the future.”

The interior shows a luxurious and high-tech image based on ‘technology for human life’.

The front part has a grand mesh radiator grille, a star map signature lighting across it, and a wide-shaped LED projection lamp.

The front of the DS 4 presents a sense of luxury in France, and a diamond-patterned hexagonal grill called DS Wings connects the headlamps and the grill to complete an overwhelming presence. Compared to the car body, the bonnet and loop line maximize a sleek image by presenting dynamics based on aerodynamics. The 19-inch aluminum wheel meshed with the compact body supports smooth driving.

The interior is reminiscent of the luxury materials that show the essence of French luxury and the luxury of Haute Couture created by a stubborn craftsmanship. The balanced combination of Kiyose techniques (exquisite intaglio surface decorations used by watchmakers), Alcantara materials, and wood reveals DS’s design philosophy that aims for sophistication.

Door trims are designed in consideration of ergonomics by each element such as door handles, window switches, and vents designed integrally. The DSE-Toggle Switch, which replaces the existing gear transmission, has optimized space utilization as well as design. DS Air (AIR), an innovative air conditioner without external vents, has secured optimal efficiency while increasing the design autonomy of the dashboard.

DS4, which will be officially released in Korea next month, is equipped with a 1.5 Blue HDi diesel engine and consists of two trims, ▲ Trocadero ▲ Rivoli, depending on convenience and safety items.
