Audi launching 30 electrified vehicles by 2025

first_img More From Roadshow Following the launch of the E-Tron SUV this spring, Audi will bring the E-Tron Sportback — likely called E-Tron Performance — to market. It packs all the goodies of the standard E-Tron in a sort of crossover-coupe shape. In other words, it’s an E-Tron SUV with a more heavily raked roofline and slightly wider proportions.In 2020, Audi will launch the Q4 E-Tron, which rides on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB Evo electric vehicle architecture. As we reported earlier, the production Q4 E-Tron will look remarkably similar to the concept car, the production Q4 E-Tron will look remarkably similar to the concept car from this year’s Geneva Motor Show, right down to the funky, customizable LED running lights.The E-Tron GT will also arrive in 2020, and will share a number of its components with the upcoming Porsche Taycan, including a new, 800-volt charging system. Much like the Q4 E-Tron, the production GT will bear a striking resemblance to the concept from last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, though it, too, will gain real door handles and a bit more texturing around the front fascia.Early next decade, a number of electrified Audis will launch on the company’s new PPE architecture, co-developed with Porsche. It’s unclear exactly what Audi has in store for this PPE platform, but Porsche has already confirmed the next-generation Macan SUV will use this electrified base. 51 Photos 26 Photos Audi’s new E-Tron electric SUV will hit the road in the US in the coming months. It’s a big step forward for the German automaker’s electrification plans, but as it turns out, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.At an event at Audi’s headquarters in Ingolstadt, Germany, on Wednesday, company executives confirmed the brand will launch 30 electrified vehicles by the year 2025. The key word here is electrified — as in, not necessarily fully electric. Cars like the recently announced A6, A7, A8 and Q5 plug-in hybrids count toward this 30-vehicle goal. 2018 Audi Q7: Rockin’ the suburbs 0 2018 Audi S4: The sweet spot sport sedan Audi E-Tron GT concept on the streets of Los Angeles Electric Cars Luxury cars Audi Share your voice Post a comment Tags 2019 Audi E-Tron basking in the desert sun 2019 Audi Q8 review: Stop worrying and love the roof Audilast_img read more

The PhoneSoap 3 UV germ killer is on sale for 64

first_img Mentioned Above D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug D-Link Wi-Fi Smart Plug Preview • Belkin’s WeMo switches have a new rival See it Comments Share your voice See It CNET may get a commission from retail offers. $49 14 The Cheapskate Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Review • D-Link’s Wi-Fi Smart Plug needs to wise up $22 Amazon Walmart Tags Mobile Accessories Smart Home PhoneSoap I have mixed feelings about today’s deal, but it’s one of those things that’s in the “you decide” category. Because while I’m not convinced phone germs are a real problem, I strongly believe in “better safe than sorry.” So let me start with the deal, then explain my thinking.For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the PhoneSoap 3 UV Cell Phone Sanitizer for $63.90 when you clip the on-page 20%-off coupon. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.See it at AmazonThe coupon should apply to nearly all the available colors, but here’s something I just noticed: If you choose Gold or Sand, you’ll see a price of just $48.99! Now, that’s from third-party seller On the Go Shops, and both colors show “in stock on Aug. 25.” That’s a pretty big price difference, and in the past I’ve seen a few folks get burned by third-party Amazon sellers with too-good-to-be-true pricing. That said, you’re protected by Amazon, so why not go for the better deal? Update: Those colors are no longer available.Another quick note: PhoneSoap proper is offering 30% off select bundles with promo code B2S30.See it at PhoneSoapIn case you never saw the PhoneSoap Shark Tank episode or just haven’t heard of the product, it’s a little UV oven that promises to kill 99.99% of the bacteria on your phone (and similarly small objects: earbuds, keys and so on). It’s clinically proven to work as advertised, and takes all of 10 minutes to do its thing.OK, but, do you need it? That’s where I struggle. You’ve probably heard the reports about phone screens being veritable bacteria magnets, with way more germs on average than even a public toilet. But for years I’ve heard the same thing about my computer keyboard. With all this bacteria out there that we’re constantly touching, why aren’t we all sick all the time?The counter-argument, of course, is that maybe we’d be less sick overall if we wiped our keyboards and UV-zapped our phones. Like I said: Better safe than sorry? For students in particular, who live in the petri-dish worlds of classrooms and dorm rooms, and who grope their phones pretty much 24/7, a PhoneSoap might be a wise investment.For what it’s worth, the gizmo has a 4.4-star average rating from nearly 1,000 buyers.Your thoughts on this?

Gosund Every time I write about a smart-plug deal, it sells out quickly — which makes me realize how much everyone is into smart-plug deals. So, here you go: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Gosund WP5 Wi-Fi smart plug four-pack is just $23.99 when you clip the on-page 5%-off coupon and apply promo code GOSUNDWP5 at checkout.See it at AmazonThat’s only $6 off the regular price, but it still works out to a pretty compelling $6 per plug. Typically you’ll see one for around $10 and two for $18.Though it’s hard to tell for sure, the WP5 looks compact enough that you can plug it into an outlet without blocking the other outlet. It’s compatible with Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT — no hub required — though it does require a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network. If yours can operate only at 5GHz, look elsewhere.The plugs have a 4.2-star average rating from nearly 800 buyers, and Gosund backs them with an impressive two-year warranty.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on tech products and much more.

Market optimism trumps uncertainties in November

first_imgIndian markets saw the triumph of optimism over a host of negative build-ups in November.A week that had five successive sessions of advancing benchmark indices capped the month’s return of the bulls.The ground situation for the markets has been fraught with uncertainties. India has been in the middle of elections in five states, considered crucial for the Narendra Modi government that will enter the election year soon. The general election is likely sometime in the middle of next year.Oil exporting nations have announced a production cut that should have driven up international crude prices. But the prices have been sliding and have dipped below the psychological level of $60 a barrel.The US sanctions on Iran after President Trump tore up the nuclear deal were expected to bite this month. Once the Iranian crude evaporated from the international market, the oil prices should have shot up.However, the huge US inventories and increasing production there have kept the price suppressed. Some energy market circles also see an agreement between Washington and Riyadh behind the soft oil in an attempt to harm Tehran. The gathering trade war clouds between the US and China are also effectively suppressing an oil uptick.The situation has lowered India’s oil import bill. The Indian markets were expected to remain cautious of oil prices because of international uncertainties. But the market has ignored the uncertainties and found traction in foreign institutional investors’ (FIIs) return.The oil slide has strengthened the rupee against the dollar. The stronger rupee has helped the market to stabilise further by allaying worries of further currency sell-off.Analysts still advice caution but are happy that the net flow of FII investments turned positive after months in the negative terrain. The bloodbath of September and October saw the flight of about Rs 35,000 crore from the markets, according to some estimates. November has been a different story with foreign investors returning for juicy trades. They have pumped in at least Rs 12,000 crore over the past few weeks, estimates say.Both Sensex and Nifty posted new highs and technical experts suggest they have found new supports. Sensex closed on Friday at 36,194 and Nifty on 10,876. Having reclaimed the support of 10,800, Nifty is on way to breach 11,000, say technical experts.Technical expertsIndian optimism has fond warmth in Morgan Stanley’s overweight rating and HSBC’s upgrading to neutral from underweight.”The market ended on a positive note after a roller-coaster effect ahead of G20 meet and expectation of oil production cut in the upcoming Opec meet,” said Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services. “On the other hand, FIIs turned positive as fall in oil prices to bearish territory and appreciation in rupee stimulated hopes of economic growth.”FIIs poured in more than Rs 12,000 crore (Debt & Equity) in Indian markets according to SEBI data on Moneycontrol.The month distinguished itself with more than average rise of midcaps and small caps, which usually are the worst hit in an uncertain market. In the S&P BSE Small Cap index, as many as 50 stocks rallied 20 per cent to 171 per cent in November, according to Money Control. Three stocks more than doubled investors’ wealth in the same period. In the S&P BSE Mid Cap index, three stocks rose between 20 per cent and 40 per cent.Technical traders are happy that Sensex and Nifty regained crucial support levels during the month – the Sensex back above 36,000 and Nifty above 10,800. Experts feel that barring a disastrous result in the second week of December the momentum should continue.last_img read more

Its not mild stroke but low blood sugar Quader

first_imgObaidul Quader, Mahbubey AlamAbout the suspicion of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia’s personal physicians that she has suffered a mild stroke, ruling Bangladesh Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Sunday said she fell sick for low blood sugar level, reports UNB.Meanwhile, the attorney general, Mahbubey Alam, also echoed Quader saying Khaleda’s physicians were “spreading it just to get court sympathy”.”I’ve talked to the home minister and IG prisons over the matter. Though Khaleda’s physicians said she might have suffered from mild stroke, the physician of the jail said it is because of fall in her blood sugar level. It’s not a mild stroke,” said Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister.Obaidul was talking to reporters while visiting Dhaka-Tangail highway at Chandra of Gazipur.”We don’t support any negligence in Khaleda’s treatment and she has been requested to go abroad for treatment and undergo medical tests at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) Hospital,” claimed the minister.Talking about the road condition and Eid journey, Quader said the four-lane Chandra-Elenga road will be opened to traffic on 12 June, aiming to ensure the smooth journey of homebound people.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate the road after Eid, he said.Addressing a press briefing at his office after the High Court adjourned the hearing on a petition filed by Khaleda seeking bail in a Cumilla arson case, attorney general Mahbubey Alam dismissed Khaleda’s personal physicians’ claim.”It’s not true that she [Khaleda] had a mild stroke. It’s also not true that she became senseless or remained senseless. She had dizziness following a fall in her blood sugar level.” The BNP chairperson’s four personal physicians on Saturday met Khaleda at the abandoned central jail at Nazimuddin Road.”Khaleda Zia collapsed on the ground on 5 June but she cannot recall anything of the incident. We think she suffered a mild stroke,” professor SM Siddique of Dhaka Medical College Hospital’s medicine department told reporters.”I talked to the Inspector General (Prisons) before going to court today when he told me that Khaleda Zia’s sugar level dropped just before iftar on 5 June. But it’s not true that she became senseless. She had just giddiness. Instantly, she was fed with chocolate,” said the attorney general.”The IG (Prisons) and the Civil Surgeon would have been informed surely had she become senseless. They (BNP) are trying to mobilise public opinion using the issue,” he said.Mahbubey Alam smelt something fishy in physicians’ visit to the BNP chief just one day before the hearing on a case. “It’s shameful that physicians who should not be involved in politics are saying that she [Khaleda] remained senseless for 7-8 minutes,” he added.Meanwhile, law minister Anisul Huq and home minister Asaduzzaman Khan said BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia will be sent to BSMMU for medical tests following her personal physicians’ claim of mild stroke.last_img read more
