The world’s most anticipated electric boat has completed its maiden flight. The foiling Candela C-8 promises to disrupt the gas-guzzling powerboat industry, thanks to a unique combination of long all-electric range, high speed, and industry-first features.
After 16 months of intense development, the most ordered electric boat ever took off from the cold waters outside the Swedish tech company’s headquarters at Lidingö, Stockholm.
After reaching its designed take-off speed of 16 knots, the Candela C-8 prototype P-01 lifted off smoothly, and flew noiselessly above the water at a cruise speed of 20 knots.
-Smooth, and very, very silent, said Gustav Hasselskog, Candela’s CEO after piloting the C-8 on its maiden flight.

Digitisation is delivering an integrated user experience characterised by individuality and emotionalisation in the interior of current BMW models. The My Modes allow the driver to tailor the atmosphere in the interior entirely to their personal mood and the driving experience they want. With the BMW iX Flow featuring E Ink being presented on the occasion of CES 2022, the Munich-based premium car manufacturer is offering the prospect of a future technology that uses digitisation to also adapt the exterior of a vehicle to different situations and individual wishes. The surface of the BMW iX Flow featuring E Ink can vary its shade at the driver's prompting.
Ford Pro Charging Launches to Help Businesses of All Sizes Overcome the Hurdle to Seamless Electrification
Ford Pro™ announced the launch of Ford Pro Charging, a comprehensive solution for commercial electric vehicle charging. While more commercial customers want to switch to electric vehicles to reduce maintenance costs, minimize emissions and drive down total cost of ownership*, the transition from all internal combustion-powered fleets can be complex. Ford Pro Charging will help ease this transition by delivering intuitive software and commercial hardware infrastructure to support charging and energy management.
Bercman Technologies wants to buy Estonian IoT company Krakul, which has become famous for its moon cameras
Bercman Technologies, a Nasdaq First North listed deep-tech company developing traffic safety solutions, intends to acquire Krakul, Estonia’s leading IoT and autonomous systems development company. The acquisition of Krakul is part of Bercman’s strategic goal to expand its engineering and software team into developing intelligent transportation systems.
Mart Suurkask, CEO of Bercman Technologies: “The two companies share common goals to make the world a better place through technology. Bercman develops intelligent traffic solutions, Krakul develops IoT and autonomous systems. The merger of the companies would create synergies that would allow us to jointly develop and market new services in the field of autonomous vehicles and intelligent traffic solutions.”
Podracer is a vehicle from Star Wars film The Phantom Menace. It moves fast near the surface and have a high maneuverability. This is exactly what Jetson´s electric aircraft looks.
Jetson´s weight is 86 kg and it can carry up to 95 kg passenger. It fliews 20 minutes with 85 kg pilot weight. Top speed is 102 km/h, but it is software limited, not the actual limit of engines.
It is all ready fligfht machine and can be purchased for 85 000 euros. Yes, far more than mid-class vehicle. But at 100 km/h, you can reach any corner of city in 20 minutes.
And it´s cool. It looks exactly like a "Star Wars" podracer.

ABB E-mobility to develop and supply MegaWatt fast charging infrastructure for the all-electric 7-Seater Lilium Jet
ABB E-mobility and Lilium N.V. positioned to be a global leader in regional electric air mobility, have announced plans for ABB to provide the charging infrastructure for Lilium’s high speed regional air network, scheduled for commercial launch in 2024. Lilium has announced planned launch networks in Florida, Germany, and Brazil. As part of the agreement, ABB will develop, test and supply the MegaWatt fast charging infrastructure necessary for the quick turnaround times needed for electric aviation. The ABB charging points are designed to be capable of fully charging batteries in approximately 30 minutes, and charging up to 80% in 15 minutes, enabling the 20-25 flights per aircraft per day planned across Lilium’s global vertiport network.
Germany and Sweden are world leaders when it comes to real-world studies on electric roads. On Gotland, the world's first wireless e-road has been finished.
Electric roads are one of the studied technologies in the race to decarbonise heavy traffic and within a few years the first commercial electric road could be a reality. This will probably happen in Sweden or Germany.
Traffic and transport account for more than a quarter of the world's greenhouse gas emissions, which makes it necessary to phase out fossil fuels. Today, the proportion of electric vehicles is rapidly increasing and charging networks such as Vattenfall InCharge are being expanded at an ever faster pace.
