Vanderhall Teases New Navarro EV Off-Roader With Four Actual Wheels

Just how insanely massive is the SUV market these days? Pretty much every automaker offers at least one model – even Ferrari has its Purosangue in the works. However, when a niche manufacturer known for small three-wheeled runabouts jumps into the arena, you know it’s serious.
Admittedly, calling this vehicle an SUV is a serious stretch. However, when your forte is roofless three-wheelers with gutsy engines and tarmac-taming handling characteristics, stepping up to an off-roader with a roof and four wheels is basically a paradigm shift. That’s exactly what Vanderhall is doing with this new offering called the Navarro, which the company describes not as an SUV, but an adventure vehicle.
What else do we know about this offering? It’s all-electric, which is something Vanderhall has done before. The nature of its powertrain or specifics such as horsepower and range aren’t yet known, but we do know the company’s Edison model uses two electric motors driving the front wheels. Its 28.8-kilowatt battery delivers an estimated range of 200 miles and a 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds.
We’re going to assume the setup will be different for the Navarro. For starters, it will have considerably more mass to lug around. And while the teaser video doesn’t give us a clear view of the Navarro’s front, we severely doubt such an off-roader would drive the front wheels only. For that matter, it may not offer four-wheel-drive either. As we’ve sometimes seen in the world of crazy customization, building a fun vehicle for off-road adventure doesn’t always require power going to all four wheels.
Unfortunately, the teaser comes with precious little information aside from what we can see in the video. The Navarro appears to have a fixed roof, or at least, a roof more permanently fixed than the “capshade” toppers offered on other models. It also has doors, though apparently you can see through them. We can’t tell if there’s extra seating in the back or if it’s just a cargo area for carrying your adventure gear. It does ride on some seriously meaty tires though, and from the way it bounces towards the end of the teaser video, it appears to have a squishy long-travel suspension setup.
Any way you cut it, this is a serious departure for Utah-based Vanderhall. It’s slated to join the company’s lineup as a 2022 model, which means we probably won’t see it fully revealed until sometime next year.

Kohl’s cuts 15% of corporate workforce after pandemic hit

The company said the job cuts would likely save it about $65 million in annual expenses, and were part of its broader plan to reduce costs by more than $100 million. (https://bit.ly/33w8Fkz)
The layoffs at Kohl’s come at a time of high unemployment in the United States. Nearly 900,000 Americans filed for weekly jobless benefits, according to the last reported figures from the Labor Department, suggesting the labor market recovery from the pandemic was stalling.

Malaysia’s Muhyiddin could see state election damaged by girl studying in treetop for better Wi-fi

A viral video of a Malaysian student in Sabah who filmed herself studying and taking exams from the tree tops – where she had better Wi-fi – has drawn attention to the lagging state of infrastructure and development in the far reaches of the Bornean state.
Veveonah Mosibin, 18, was praised for her grit and resourcefulness for erecting a makeshift wooden platform kitted out with a mosquito net and exam supplies, including stationery, power banks, insect repellent, food and water.
Netizens and corporations sent her messages of support and study equipment, and she later also won a scholarship. Malaysia’s Communications and Multimedia Commission pledged to improve internet connectivity in her village.
The episode comes as Sabah is due to vote for a new state government on September 26, and comments by two deputy ministers accusing Veveonah of lying may impact the balance of federal power, analysts say, particularly as Sabah boasts a young electorate.
The resource-rich Sabah is considered a “kingmaker” in federal elections, with politicians from both sides of the divide vying to make inroads in a state that has been beset by poor development despite its massive natural wealth.
As part of anti-coronavirus measures, schools in Malaysia have increasingly turned to e-learning. According to state education officials however, poor internet access and hardware in rural Sabah have hamstrung online education, with 52 per cent of students lacking access to the internet, computers, smartphones or tablets, local media reported.
In early September, some weeks after Veveonah shared her video on YouTube, deputy finance minister Abdul Rahim Bakri and deputy communications minister Zahidi Zainul Abidin accused her of faking the poor connectivity issues to gain publicity and attention.
Abdul Rahim, an MP for the Kudat constituency in Sabah, said he had conducted “investigations” which showed Veveonah lived in a town, not a village.
“How can this student claim she studied on a tree in the village when she actually lives in a town? Why would a student need to endanger herself … when she had the option to go to (the nearby town of) Pitas, whether it is at a school or a public place that has good internet coverage?” he wrote on Facebook.
Zahidi, meanwhile, said the teenager was trying to “to make a name for herself”.
In response, Veveonah posted a photo of her exam schedule on Instagram with the caption, “fake news is dangerous”, before going silent on social media.
The two politicians faced widespread backlash for what the public perceived as the bullying of a young woman, and many Malaysians leapt to Veveonah’s defence, including the science minister Khairy Jamaluddin, who described the remarks as “silly”.
“It has resulted in a very embarrassing episode for the government. The deputy ministers concerned doubled down on their (foolishness),” said Khairy, who later met Veveonah in Sabah.
Ex-minister Abdul Rahman Dahlan, from Sabah, asked detractors to leave Veveonah alone, praising her “courage and strength of character”.
Former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, 95, released a TikTok video praising Veveonah; while opposition strongman Lim Guan Eng demanded that the politicians who had started the online witch hunt against Veveonah step down.
As outrage grew, Abdul Rahim deleted his post and Zahidi faced scrutiny over his own academic qualifications. While the deputy communications minister claimed to have earned an MBA from the US-based “Global University”, efforts by local media to verify the information with the institution had failed.
Observers say the gaffe could cost the ruling coalition at the state-level polls.
Sabah’s election was triggered after a slew of politicians defected to other parties, leading to a possibility the state could fall into the hands of the ruling Perikatan Nasional coalition, which holds a slim majority in parliament. The saga has now made the outcome less clear.
“The Veveonah issue is a big one among younger voters in Sabah, and politicians will be using this as one of the main issues to speak out against the Perikatan Nasional government,” said James Chin of Tasman…
