There’s no charge to switch between the three leather interior options and the excellent City Weave plaid cloth layout.There are a few options packages available. You can heat the rear seats and the steering wheel for just $750. The $2,200 Luxury Package adds massaging ventilated seats, and it upgrades the interior’s leather to the softer Nappa variety. The $2,800 Cross Country Pro package adds a new interior inlay, memory for the passenger seats, power lumbar support for the front seats, ambient interior lighting, four-zone automatic climate control and some exterior styling. Finally, there’s the $2,500 Advanced Package, which adds all the safety-related bits, like a surround-view camera, pressure washers for the headlights, a head-up display and Pilot Assist, Volvo’s hands-on lane-holding adaptive cruise control system.Spec as many options and packages as you can, and the price rises to $55,275 including destination. That’s not too bad, considering the V60 and its multiple powertrain options can shoot north of $60,000. 2020 Volvo XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered first drive: Almost Super Troupercenter_img 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country first drive: Small changes make a big impact Wagons Crossovers Enlarge ImageIf adding a lift kit is what it takes to get people into wagons, I’ll embrace the move with open arms. Volvo The Volvo V60 Cross Country is a wagon for people who occasionally venture off the beaten path. With a higher ride height and additional body cladding, the V60 Cross Country looks and feels slightly more rugged than the standard V60 wagon. While we drove it quite some time ago, we weren’t sure how much it would end up costing, but now we know.The 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country starts at $46,095, comprising a $45,100 base price and the mandatory $995 destination charge. That will net you a V60 Cross Country in Ice White (the only free paint color) with Volvo’s T5 powertrain — a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Mated to standard all-wheel drive, it’s good for an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.You do get a good amount of kit for that price. The base V60 Cross Country comes standard with a 9-inch Sensus Connect infotainment system, embedded navigation, keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and lane-keep assist. 0 Share your voice 5:33 More about 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country T5 AWD Now playing: Watch this: Volvolast_img read more

CJI sexual harassment case Woman who accused Gogoi pulls out of inquiry

first_img[Representational Image]The Supreme Court of IndiaA woman who accused the chief justice of India’s Supreme Court of sexual harassment said on Tuesday she would no longer participate in the proceedings of a judges’ panel investigating the case as she does not expect justice.The 35-year-old junior court assistant, whose identity has not been publicly disclosed, wrote a letter to all Supreme Court judges along with an affidavit detailing her allegations against India’s most powerful judge Ranjan Gogoi.He has denied the charges.The woman’s complaint included allegations she and her family were victimised by authorities after she spurned the alleged advances of Gogoi.In her statement on Tuesday, the woman said she was not allowed to have her representative present despite impaired hearing and anxiety. She also said there was no video or audio recording made, and she was not given a copy of her statements on the case from previous days.”I found the atmosphere of the committee very frightening and I was very nervous because of being confronted and questioned by three Supreme Court Judges and without even the presence of my lawyer/support person,” she said.”I felt I was not likely to get justice from this committee and so I am no longer participating in the 3-Judge Committee proceedings.”No immediate comment was available from the Supreme Court.Gogoi has said the accusations showed India’s judiciary was under threat from a wider conspiracy, without elaborating.”There is some bigger force behind the woman,” he told a special hearing on Saturday.last_img read more

Selfinflating bike tires campaign for dollars

first_imgPumpTire developers have in mind two end products, one for casual cyclists and the other for cyclists who want high performance. For the latter, The City Pro has a max 100 psi, and the City Cruiser is a 26″ x 1.5″ tire with a maximum 65 psi.In the video showing how it works, the founder of the project, Benjamin Krempel, hops on his bicycle and takes it for a ride. We see the pressure on the tire rising from 22 to 52 psi in over a mile. As for the higher-performance tire product, the user is allowed to set the pressure from 65 to 95 psi.True to the Kickstarter project practice, Krempel and team are posting project details on the Kickstarter site, hoping backers will donate toward their goal, which is $250,000. They want to use that money to work with vendors and engineers to put in place the right materials and processes and to get tools and materials for assembly. The project will only be funded if at least $250,000 is pledged by October 5, according to the site. At the time of this writing, they have $3,619 with 43 backers. As offers to those who pledge, they give those who pledge $75 two Cruiser tires, two valves and two tubes at the expected retail value of $129.90. Those who pledge $45 get one Cruiser tire, (you guessed it). one valve and one tube at the expected retail price of $64.95. Pledges of one dollar or more get the team’s warm thanks for doing a good deed. Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Bicycle owners are being offered a no-hassle solution to keeping their bicycle tires sidewalk and road-worthy. The solution is called the PumpTire, billed as the world’s first self-inflating bicycle tire. Thanks simply to the rolling motion of the tire, and inventor ingenuity, it can happen. Right now, it’s an advanced prototype, not something to yank off any shelf. PumpTire is promoting this off the Kickstarter project site. The PumpTire team hopes that, with enough donations, they can transform their prototype into products for cyclists everywhere.

The inner tube clips into the tire to allow the air to pass from the tire to the tube. Once the desired pressure is reached, the pump stops. The valve senses the increase in pressure. and closes the air pathway so that no more air is pumped into the tire. This document is subject to copyright.
