Perodua Alza 2022 terima ASEAN NCAP lima-bintang

New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) telah memberikan penarafan lima-bintang kepada Perodua Alza 2022 yang baru saja dilancarkan, dengan skor keseluruhan 81.64 mata.

MPV tujuh-tempat duduk serba baru ini merupakan model keempat yang dinilai di bawah protokol terkini 2021-2025 yang terdiri daripada empat kategori; perlindungan penumpang dewasa (AOP), perlindungan penumpang kanak-kanak (COP), bantuan keselamatan (SA) dan keselamatan penunggang motosikal (MS). Ia juga menjadi model kedua Perodua yang diuji di bawah kitaran yang lebih komprehensif ini selepas Ativa.

Menurut laporan ASEAN NCAP, varian Alza yang diuji ialah X yang paling asas. Semua tiga varian yang ditawarkan datang dengan enam-beg udara sebagai standard, VSC, kawalan cengkaman, ABS, EBD, bantuan brek, sistem peringatan tali keledar, lampu tinggi automatik, amaran penukaran lorong dan penghindaran serta AEB dengan pengesanan pejalan kaki. Cuma AV yang turut menerima peninjau titik buta dan sistem bantuan lain.

Dalam kategori AOP, Alza mencatatkan 28.96 mata daripada 32 mata keseluruhan, dengan 43.04 daripada 51 mata untuk COP. Kategori MS pula menyaksikan MPV berkenaan meraih lapan daripada 16 mata, dan untuk kategori SA, 19.50 daripada 21 mata. Secara keseluruhannya, skor akhir membolehkannya menerima penarafan lima-bintang.

“Perodua Alza merupakan model kedua Perodua yang diuji di bawah protokol 2021-2025 ASEAN NCAP. Walaupun keperluan keselamatan terkini yang lebih ketat diperlukan oleh ASEAN NCAP, Perodua terkehadapan dalam hal ini dengan menyertakan beberapa teknologi bantuan keselamatan utama sebagai ciri standard untuk semua varian. Adalah amat membanggakan untuk melihat pengeluar kenderaan Malaysia begitu progresif dalam aspek keselamatan kenderaan dengan memenuhi keperluan ketat ASEAN NCAP,” ujar Ketua Pengara MIROS, Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim.

DBKL teliti beberapa kawasan lain di sekitar ibu kota sebagai lokasi bebas kenderaan seperti Jalan TAR

Susulan kejayaan penutupan Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR) pada setiap Ahad sejak 28 Ogos lalu, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) sedang meneliti beberapa kawasan lain di ibu kota untuk dijadikan sebagai lokasi bebas kenderaan.

Antara lokasi yang dilihat berpotensi untuk mewujudkan kawasan pejalan kaki di tengah bandar adalah di sekitar Bukit Bintang, menurut Timbalan Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias.

“Selepas Jalan TAR, kita bercadang untuk melaksanakannya di sekitar Hotel Federal kerana kawasan itu ialah lokasi tumpuan pejalan kaki. Bagaimanapun, kita masih dalam sesi libat urus dengan pihak berkepentingan serta orang awam dan sekiranya berjaya, perkara itu akan diumumkan nanti,” katanya seperti yang dilaporkan Bernama.

Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah pula berkata pihaknya menerima maklum balas positif daripada semua pihak termasuk peniaga dan orang awam berhubung penutupan Jalan TAR pada setiap Ahad.

“Oleh itu, kita merancang untuk membawa lebih banyak program dan aktiviti untuk menjadikan tempat itu lebih meriah. Perkara ini bukanlah sesuatu yang mudah untuk dilaksanakan, jadi kita perlu mendapatkan maklum balas orang ramai bagi menyelesaikan sebarang masalah yang mungkin timbul selepas itu,” katanya.

Singapore Hikes ERP Toll Rates to Ease Congestion

Singapore hikes ERP toll rates to ease congestion

Motorists who frequently drive into Singapore, do take note. Rates for electronic road pricing (ERP) in Singapore will increase by SGD$1 (RM3.22) at five expressway locations as a result of traffic build-up at various stretches of expressways in August, the city-state’s land transport authority (LTA).

The increase of rates apply to the ERP gantry on the AYE before Alexandra towards the city centre (8:30am – 9am), the set of three gantries on the AYE after Jurong Town Hall towards the city centre (5:30pm – 6pm), the set of four gantries on the southbound CTE after Braddell Road and the PIE slip road towards the southbound CTE (8:30am – 9am), two gantries on the PIE at Kallang Bahru and the slip road into Bendeemer (8:30am – 9am), and two gantries on the northbound CTE after PIE (7:30pm – 8pm).

The highest rates will be at the southbound CTE gantries, which will charge motorists SGD$4 (RM12.90) at the stipulated time between 8:30am and 9am. Before this, ERP rates were last revised in July, according to Channel News Asia.

Rates for other, previously unannounced ERP gantries and timeslots remain unchanged, according to the Singapore LTA. “With these adjustments, the number of locations and timeslots charged is still significantly lower than the number charged pre-Covid,” it said.

The land transport authority of the city-state said that it will continue to monitor traffic speeds and congestion levels closely, and determine if the electronic road pricing rates need to be adjusted further, according to the report.

Huawei AITO M5 EV for China – 80 KWh Battery, up to 620 Km Range; Single- or Dual-motor; From RM186k

Huawei AITO M5 EV for China – 80 kWh battery, up to 620 km range; single- or dual-motor; from RM186k

Huawei has presented its first pure electric vehicle in the form of the Wenjie M5 EV, which will be sold through the company’s AITO sub-brand. The new model is essentially an all-electric version of the Wenjie M5 that made its debut last December, which itself is a modified and restyled version of the SF5 that Huawei co-developed with California-based EV maker Seres.

The AITO line-up previously featured just two models, the Wenjie M5 and the Wenjie M7, the latter being a large SUV that made its debut in July this year. Both are range-extended EVs with a 1.5 litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine acting as a generator to charge a 40-kWh ternary lithium-ion battery that powers single- or dual-motor setups.

Unlike its siblings, the Wenjie M5 EV does without the internal combustion engine entirely and gets a more substantial battery with an energy capacity of 80 kWh. Built on Huawei’s DriveONE platform, the base Standard Edition gets a rear-mounted electric motor rated at 272 PS (268 hp or 200 kW) and 360 Nm of torque, which is good for a 0-100 km/h time of 7.1 seconds.

The Standard Edition retails at 288,600 yuan (RM186,429) after subsidies, and is joined by the Performance Edition priced at 319,800 yuan (RM206,530). The premium nets you a dual-motor, all-wheel drive powertrain that is made up of a front electric motor with 224 PS (221 hp or 165 kW) and 315 Nm, while the rear motor serves up 272 PS (268 hp or 200 kW) and 360 Nm.

The added grunt means a reduced century sprint time of just 4.5 seconds, although this comes at the expense of range as the Performance Edition will do 552 km on a full charge – following the China Light-Duty Vehicle Test Cycle (CLTC) – while the Standard Edition can muster 620 km. Huawei’s Dynamic Adaptive Torque System (DATS) is included with both powertrains.

According to the company, both variants of the M5 EV will take 10.5 hours to get from a 10-90% state of charge (SOC) with an AC charger with a power output of 7 kW. There’s also support for DC fast charging that will get the battery from a 30-80% SOC in just 30 minutes with a charger capable of 100 kW. China uses the GB/T connector for AC and DC charging, which looks similar to the European Type 2, but with but with different pin configurations and signalling.

In terms of dimensions, the M5 EV is slightly longer than the range extended M5 with a length of 4,785 mm (+15 mm). It also has a slightly lower height of 1,620 mm (-5 mm) but retains the same width (1,930 mm) and wheelbase (2,880 mm).

As for styling, the M5 EV’s front grille is largely closed off since it doesn’t have an engine, and the vertical LED strips on the M5 are replaced with air curtains instead. Beyond these changes, the rest of the vehicle looks pretty much identical to its range-extended stablemate.

The interior is largely the same too, although the M5 EV gets a wireless charger capable of charging two phone simultaneously on the centre console. Other tech items include a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a 15.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the latter powered by Harmony OS with plenty of connected features.

Equipment-wise, both variants come standard with a panoramic sunroof, LED exterior lighting, a 128-colour interior ambient lighting system, automatic climate control with a PM2.5 air filter, Nappa leather upholstery, a NFC card key, a 19-speaker sound system, six airbags and a full complement of safety and driver assistance systems (AEB, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist, lane keep warning and assist). Wheels measures 19 inches on the base option and 20 inches on the range-topper.
