  Joint Development, Production & Sales Collaboration                                             Source: BMW & Toyota Hedging Bets & Investments in Hydrogen Vehicles An innovative partnership has just emerged between German luxury car maker BMW and Japan's Toyota to develop, produce and sell hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2025.  They have partnered on vehicles before like the BMW Z4 and the Toyota Supra sports car, but the scope of this collaboration is unprecedented.  It brings the smarts and expertise of two automotive behemoths together to create next generation, zero emissions hydrogen vehicles.  Hydrogen vehicles use hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity to fuel the vehicles. Hydrogen's Advantages Toyota in particular has depth of experience in developing hydrogen vehicles like the now 8-year-old Toyota Mirai hydrogen sedan. BMW recently introduced its next generation vehicle platform - Neue Klasse - that will be designed for building hydrogen vehicles as

  American Airlines Orders 20 SSTs                                             Source:  Boom Supersonic Traveling Faster Than the Speed of Sound Business is booming at the moment for Colorado-based aviation company Boom Supersonic.  American Airlines has just joined United and Japan Airlines in placing substantial orders for Boom's Overture SST passenger plane.  Overture uniquely flies faster than the speed of sound on ecofriendly Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF). American has ordered 20 Overture SSTs with the option of buying 40 more.  Boom already has 70 SST orders from United Airlines and Japan Airlines.  The SST will enable flights from New York City to London in 3.5 hours as opposed to 5.5 hours currently or Tokyo to Seattle in 4.4 hours rather than the current 8.3 hours.  For air travelers, those flight times would be a dream come true. Tech Specs Boom is readying for takeoff with a production ready version it just unveiled.  Overture has gull-like wings with a contoured fuse

It is revolutionary aviation technology that Lilium hopes to have European certification to fly commercially by 2025.  Lilium is collaborating with a global leader in aircraft systems and cabin design, Diehl Aviation to finalize the vehicle. Timeframe and Tech Specs Lilium is significantly accelerating the testing and development of the eVTOL.  The company has faced some criticism for slippage in its time frames.  5th generation eVTOL demonstrators are currently undergoing testing at Lilium facilities in Spain. The company is also working on next-generation battery technology systems to expand range

X5 is a much-anticipated new aviation concept that also has sleek, good looks and tremendous efficiency. The Wings Are the Differentiators The aircraft's wings are the key differentiator.  They open and contain 16 ducted fans that provide vertical lift.  Once the plane reaches altitude, the wings start closing as the plane transitions to cruising speed and functions as a traditional aircraft.  This dual operational approach

The tribute comes in the form of several new models that are modernized blasts from the past. Bronco is the epitome of rugged good looks and sensational off-roading capabilities. In historically modernized versions of that tradition, Ford is introducing the Bronco Sport, Heritage and Heritage Limited.  The Sport starts at $34,245; the Heritage at $45,900 and the Heritage Limited at $68,490.  The vehicles pay homage to Bronco's history with some signature designs from the first-generation vehicles.
