  • Ford to invest Ј3 billion in electRification.

    Ford will add 13 new electrified vehicles to its model range between now and 2020, with more than 40 per cent of the company’s nameplates featuring an Electric model. The first results of this Ј3 billion project will be a new Focus Electric car that will be capable of travelling 100 miles on a single charge. The investment will see electrified vehicle research and development centres in Europe and Asia expand, with what Ford calls a ‘hub and spoke’ system that will allow the global team to accelerate battery technology development and exploit opportunities in key markets.
  • Audi’s electrified future.

    The introduction of mild hybrids to Audi’s model range is set to edge efficiency ever closer to the kind of economy figures enjoyed by TDI owners. But it doesn’t mean the death of the diesel engine, as the introduction of cutting edge technology can be paired to both TDI diesel and TFSI petrol engines. Audi says that within ten years, its entire model range will feature the technology. The key elements of the new system are an 11 Ah capacity lithium-ion battery pack and belt starter generator, with the latter replacing the current starter motor. Coasting becomes possible from around 9mph upwards, so that if the driver takes their foot off the accelerator, the car will coast along for a short time with the engine off, saving fuel. It’s possible to recuperate up to 5kW (7bhp), with the generator returning that power, reducing fuel usage and boosting economy as a result. And while this system can be integrated into current 12-volt systems, Audi is on the verge of announcing that it will put a new 48-volt system into production, with a capacity of harnessing 12kW (16bhp), that will allow coasting for up to 30 seconds, delivering even better efficiency compared to the 12-volt system. The company first gave a glimpse at the technology in the Prologue Concept car last year at the Los Angeles motor show. Other benefits of the introduction of a 48-volt electrical system includes the ability to have much smaller cable cross sections, reducing the weight of the wiring harness, and because it has four times the power, there’s opportunities to add additional innovative technology for the suspension and drivetrain. Further into the future, Audi’s engineers plan to convert the auxiliary systems, like pumps, superchargers for the engine, transmission and air conditioning system to 48 volts. Today these are driven hydraulically or by the engine, but in the future they will be powered by electricity and lighter and more compact. Audi will soon announce an electromechanical active roll stabilisation system, which features an electric motor and a three-stage planetary gearbox that separates the two halves of the stabiliser from each other. For relaxed and comfortable driving, the two halves are decoupled, resulting in cossetting ride comfort. For the sportier driver, the tubes are interconnected and twist against each other, delivering a tauter, more dynamic ride, and less roll when cornering. The front and rear stabilisers can also be adjusted independently allowing even greater degrees of fine tuning. The system is also capable of harnessing energy, and the motor can act as a generator, converting it to electrical energy. But Audi’s engineers are already looking at a second, more advanced project using the 48-volt setup, though it is still in the very early prototype stage. Being developed under the working title of eROT, an electromechanical rotary damper replaces today’s hydraulic item. The system isn’t too far apart from the active roll stabilisation arrangement in terms of basic principles, but a strong lever arm absorbs all of the forces that occur on a bumpy road, and via a series of gears, the force is transmitted into an electric motor, which then converts it to electricity. Recuperation is, on average, around 150 watts on an average road, with a freshly resurfaced road generating as little as 3 watts, while a badly maintained country lane may generate as much as 613 watts. Over a cross section of different roads, CO2 emissions savings could be as much as 3g/ km or four to five mpg.
  • Citroen e-mehari ReVealed.

    Following the unveiling of the Cactus-M concept at the Frankfurt motor show last September, harking back to the original Mйhari from 1968, Citroen has revealed plans to launch a plastic bodied all-electric four-seat cabriolet called the E-Mйhari. Born out of a partnership with France’s Bollorй Group, the new car will be made at the Rennes factory in Northern France and go on sale next Spring. However, there are no plans to sell it here in the UK, with France the main target audience where there are tax breaks and incentives for these kinds of vehicles. The E-Mйhari has a top speed of 68mph, with a maximum range of approximately 125 miles. Charging takes up to 13 hours using a domestic plug socket, and because the battery pack utilises Lithium Metal Polymer (LMP) technology and are classed as ‘dry’ batteries, they aren’t weather sensitive and don’t have the range fluctuation that many modern electric cars suffer with during harsher weather conditions.

  • 2015 Honda Fit
    The unit of the car is cvt which is almost the same as in the civic, where it also didn't make too much of the fame. Here, there's a Sport mode in those mimics a seven-speed automatic transmission, but it's a very bad copy I must say. The top variant EX-L trims add standard paddle shifters to the mean ride, but the system is entertaining for only as long as it takes a person to realize they do not do a great job of making a copy of anything other than a dying automatic transmission. If a traditional automatic transmission behaved in a way, a person can drive it to the shop straight away or try to stall on the side of the highway to then call a truck to tow it. The Honda believes that it has intentionally made the program transmission to work in a way that just would portray the features to be used by people who care of the ride. ...see full review

    But, well it's a bitter truth that you cannot match up the likes of BMW 5 series of Mercedes C class on your first attempt. It's going to take a lot of re-designing and smarter ideas to venture into the top tier luxury sector. While their first attempt fell alongside Chrysler 300, their 2nd attempt seems like a great improvement on the 2009 version, helping them inch closer to their goal. ...see full review

  • 2015 Volkswagen Golf R HatchBack Winter Drive
    But, the car is safe and fuel efficient of course if driven around in the Eco mode/Individual mode. Although the tyres were tested, the cold conditions did not permit the testing of the 290 hp engine at 280 lb-ft of torque at 1800 rpm. With an acceleration time of 0-60 in 5 seconds, this hatchback could give serious competition to the likes of Audi and Benz. But the only way it could be tested is by trying it out in summer in France. Other new pointers on this car include the new bi xenon headlamps, a different grille, a bumper for larger inlets and a diffuser at the rear. Also the suspension drops about 0.8 inch if checked with the other Gold variants. The interior is made up of beautiful leather and the ‘R' logo is displayed proudly on the crossbar. ...see full review
