Toyota will develop a manned fuel-cell lunar rover... It may be part of some international moon program

TOKYO — Toyota and Japan's space agency said on Tuesday they had agreed to cooperate in developing a manned lunar rover that runs on fuel cell technologies.

Although Japan has no plan currently to make a manned rocket that could send people into space, the rover could be a major contribution to an international space program in the future, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) said.

The rover "will be an important element supporting human lunar exploration, which we envision will take place in the 2030s," JAXA Vice President Koichi Wakata told a symposium in Tokyo.

2019 Mazda3: First Official Pictures Of Sleek Sedan And Hatch Are Out

The 2019 Mazda3 has leaked online early, shortly ahead of its global premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While details on the new car remain limited at this stage, we are able to get a look at its overhauled design for the very first.

As we’ve known for quite some time, the fourth-generation Mazda3 takes clear design inspiration from the show-stopping Kai Concept. As we can see from these pictures, which our friends at Jalopnik found, the exterior design has been tamed down for production but for the most part, the new car remains true to the concept, ensuring that our hopes for a stunning new Mazda3 weren’t dashed.

The Kai-inspired looks are particularly evident with the hatchback model. Up front, there’s slim headlights and in the model pictured, a blacked-out grille. Complementing these elements are a number of aggressive and flowing lines in the lower segment of the bumper.

Most Expensive 2019 Toyota RAV4 Costs $41,341

You can spend over $3,000 less by not specifying all the of dealer-installed accessories.

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 goes on sale in the United States in December, but the configurator is now up on the automaker's website, so you can figure out the price of your next potential daily driver. The new RAV4 starts at $25,500, plus an additional $1,045 destination fee on all models. Ticking all of the option boxes for the range-topping Limited trim takes the figure to $38,115 (before destination). There are quite a few extra accessories available from the dealer – items like floor mats and paint protection – and adding all of them would take the new crossover's price to $41,341.

 

For now, the only available engine in the 2019 RAV4 is a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 203 horsepower (151 kilowatts) and 184 pound-feet (250 Newton-meters) of torque. An eight-speed automatic drives the front wheels, and an optional all-wheel-drive system is available for an additional $1,400.
