Machines are for Deutsche Post DHL Group. First customer here is not accidental, Deutsche Post and contributed to the creation of the car, in fact it is its own model.

Electrification of commercial vehicles is gaining momentum right in the eyes, and goes on rising, from small utility vans and vans to full size. And if the light has already seen a pure electric model Renault Master Z. E., Volkswagen eCrafter and Mercedes-Benz eSprinter, how “big” Transit – to-face to be left behind? And here please: Ferdowsi announced the start of production vans, StreetScooter Work XL on the basis of Transit. Compared with diesel Transit equal to the power of one such vehicle will save the carrier up to 1900 litres of fuel a year and prevent the emissions of five tons of carbon dioxide.

Although the car manufactured by Ford, this is Ford, and the StreetScooter, the brand is not even owned by Ford. Sign company StreetScooter and emblazoned on the nose of the battery Transit. The project is the result of cooperation between the two companies.

The name StreetScooter Work our readers are familiar. The so-called small electric van is an original design created by the company StreetScooter, in turn now owned by the giant Deutsche Post. When the production of StreetScooter has promised that he will expand the line in both directions. And indeed, a little later came the StreetScooter Work L (exactly the same van, but with the increased size of the cargo compartment), and two – and three-wheeled electric bicycles. But to make a full-sized van, the Fiat had to go cap in hand to a major automaker. He was the company Ford.

Recall, looks like a younger Work. A car can be a van, pick-up and self-propelled chassis.

Chassis for such a Transit (or rather, for the model Work XL) manufactured by the Ford Otosan joint venture in Turkey. Next it goes to the Ford plant in Cologne, where is equipped with the traction battery, motor, charger and a cargo compartment created by the specification of StreetScooter. To the release plan several versions by battery capacity and motor power. At the moment, the announced parameters of only one. The electric motor is 122 HP and 276 N•m, lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 76 kW•h nominal range of 200 km, 20 “cubes” of cargo space and a payload 1275 kg. the Planned production volume is about 3500 vans Work XL. The first buyer will be Deutsche Post, but the partners intend to sell the model and other customers.

audi r8 plus competition

Audi r8,Audi r8 plus competition. Все образцы будут окрашены в цвет Suzuka Gray. По краям бампера — антикрылышки (канарды), подсмотренные у гоночных версий. В остальном оформление носа — обычное, только добавлен «чёрный» дизайн-пакет: глянцевые окантовки решётки радиатора, воздухозаборников спереди и вентиляционных окон сзади.

All samples will be painted in the color Suzuka Gray. The edges of the bumper — anticrisis (kenardy), all borrowed from the racing versions. Otherwise, registration of the nose is common, only added the “black” design pack: glossy edging of the grille, air intakes, front and rear ventilation Windows.

In November ten Americans will be able to buy limited edition Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package. This is the coupe edition based on the R8 V10 plus especially for US. The car received a complete package of performance parts from Audi Sport. Version Competition not more powerful “plus”, but has more downforce and a little bit easier.

Version Competition by default put black racing seats-buckets with red stitching, full leather trim including door cards, steering wheel in Alcantara with the zero mark, 550-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers, shift paddles of carbon fiber.

Aerodynamics and should, first of all to give this version more speed on circular tracks with a large number of turns. Only 150 km/h the downforce is there, more than double the original model (now equivalent to 52 kg), and at 315 km/h grows up to 250 kg, a hundred higher than the serial “a plus”. Payback — increased drag. Because the maximum speed there is only 315 km/h instead of 330. Acceleration is not specified, and the common V10 plus — 3,2 with up to hundreds. There are about the same.

In carbon for aerodynamic kit also includes a large splitter, expanders sills, a fixed rear wing on the pylons with the inverted fastening, flaps at the corners of the rear bumper and diffuser with developed longitudinal ribs. Tires — Pirelli P Zero.

Decoration model — matte black, fully machined 20-inch wheels, the same wheels racing version of the R8 GT4 (that, however, the diameter is 18). They saved the compartment 12 kg curb weight. Another quart engineers have dropped, putting the titanium base plate carbon fiber brake pads. Other features: dynamic steering, adjustable three parameters suspension type coilover.

The 5.2 V10 engine (610 HP and 560 N•m) has not changed. By the way, under the curtain of the life of the first generation R8 she is also a Competition specifically for US, and there was “only” 578 “horses”. However, it’s more than not just a simple “er-eighth”, but modification of the GT.

Dealers of Audi in the U.S. model R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition will be in November. Valued this car at $237 350 (at current exchange rate from 15.58 million), plus another $2550 should pay for shipping and taxes. For comparison, the serial R8 V10 plus costs in America $194 400. We will add that in the next few months the entire family awaits the Audi R8 update, which will affect the appearance (slightly) and on the technique. Atmospheric dozen should slightly improve in power, and as never before, the initial versions will be forced V6 unit 2.9. However, official information about such a radical step no.

In a new series of machine frame appeared with minimal camouflage, while the last time was pasted over everything.

Buyers in the United States, with a particular interest in looking at new spy shots of the sedan Mercedes-AMG A 35. The fact that A 35 hatchback to the American market will not reach, but the four-door sibling will be sold. In Russia a simple sedan A-class will appear for sure, and no “heated” it will not be. So, look to the frames.

On the roof of A hatch 35 engineers hoisted a full wing, but smooth aft of the saloon to spoil the “bench” the Germans did not, limiting the spoiler, although not-so-little. This is not the case, not counting the body type of course.

Supercharged “four” M 260 with a return of 306 HP and 400 N•m, combined with a seven-step “robot” AMG SpeedShift DCT and all-wheel drive 4Matic, accelerates the hatchback A 35 to a hundred in 4.7 s. We do not think that the sedan will show a difference of at least a tenth of a second. As of piatigorski, there must be added to the amplifiers stiffness of the body, an electronically shock absorbers, AMG Ride Control, an enhanced switching of the driving modes and settings of the stabilization system.

Exhaust pipes and diffuser — same as “warmed-up” hatchback.

The front especially has nothing to hide. The same mesh in the grille, the same two horizontal straps as the hatch. But in the corners of the bumper are not set kenardy (small spoiler). It seems that in terms of aerodynamics of the sedan, A 35 would be less “evil” than similar pyatidverka.

Given the importance to the overseas market, we can assume the premiere of the sedan, A 35 or in November in Los Angeles, or in January in Detroit. In the first half of 2019, the model will arrive on the market. If someone would think it “small” will need to wait for the family of “lighters” with the index 45. There are at least preparing the hatchback A-class, the crossover GLA and liftback CLA. Sedan A-class in this version, the company also likely will be built. “Forty-five” under the hood will be installed again “two liters”, but with hybrid additions (including waiting for electric compressor), while the capacity will reach 400-410 HP
