Newton-meters will be rounded to the nearest 50 (i.e. 300, 350, 400, 450 and so on).

With the 2020 model year (actually since the second half of the current) Cadillac brand will begin to implement their own models of signboards indicating the maximum torque of the power unit in Newton-meters, reports the Detroit Free Press. So the Americans want to rank cars for traction. A similar gradation, in theory, gives a more complete picture of the capabilities of the car, its dynamics and the ability to tow a trailer than, say, power. The choice of Newton-meters is applied in USA lbs per foot should emphasize the commitment of Cadillac to become a truly global brand, explained the decision of the head of the brand Stephen Carlisle.

Craving is always craving, however, was achieved only one engine, or in combination with the powerful motors, or even due to the pure electric drive. In light of this diversity are clear labels with a working volume of the engine can not always be “talking”.

The new President of Cadillac Stephen Carlisle intends to return to the brand’s position as a technology leader among the brands of GM. He started a large-scale attack on the competitors in the form of many new cars (up to 2021-th every six months should be a new or facelifted model). He also initiated the return of the headquarters from new York to Michigan. The other day the boss said that the transfer of the employees will end the first of April, the gallery in the Cadillac House (showroom, concurrently playing the role of a platform for different events, concerts) will run until the end of may.

Cadillac also needs to become a leader within GM for the development of electric cars the next generation. Nameless January concept (just EV, is an electric vehicle) carries a flexible gimovsky battery platform that will be useful not only for Cadillac, but other brand of GM.

By the way, in January the Americans did not indicate the timing of turning this concept into a serial electric SUV, and now the boss Carlisle said he expects to 2022.

Returning to innovative indices, it is worth to remember that the Mercedes three-digit number in the name of the modification was initially compatible with working volume of the engine (200 — 2.0 l). And the man immediately knew what the car in front of him. Then came the injection, turbocharged, next — a very powerful diesels, hybrids and finally, showered exceptions to this rule. The Germans actually turned the index, the index level of impact. So in the model E 350 under the hood two liters and E 450 — three, 180 — running motor 1.6, but A 200 is suddenly 1.3 (because it’s faster). But E and E 200d 220d — both have the 2.0 diesel engine, only different power. The Audi also tried to visually convey the performance modifications. Was somewhat confusing. In the new system of two-digit index numbers mean just range, which enters the motor: for example, 35 is a power 150-163 HP, and 55 — 333-374 “horses”.

Now Cadillac rounded “Newtons”. I wonder how this hint will be perceived by the public. The first new * badges try crossover Cadillac XT6. But for the “heat” of the V-series would be exempt. Them “Newtons” is not displayed, apparently because the letter V already points to the top-end version of the return.

Electric car Dacia Duster paved the way mysterious model

Quick release bonnet and rear from talking about sports the purpose of the prototype. Upon closer inspection, also found the skeleton in the cabin and racing seats.

Unusual Dacia Duster first generation (and even previous) recently spotted by the photographers near the Arctic circle. The engineers of Renault Sport Department has tested this unit on one of the frozen lakes. The car is noteworthy in many respects. First, it is fully electric. Secondly, racing and three-door (or rather two, because the back opens with no wing, and a body section).

On the front of the prototype mounted Brembo brake calipers, rear — Renault Alpine.

Explanation the prototype, there are several. First: experts Dacia and Renault Duster use this as a prototype for testing some solutions racing all-wheel drive electric vehicle. This brings to mind the French championship races on ice Andros Trophy, which was made by Dacia. Interestingly, it even was used adapted ice track compact MPV Lodgy. However, the next racing partner apparatus can be battery-operated Duster.

In the championship, the Andros Trophy for several years there is an electric class. It uses the same rear-wheel drive 122-horsepower electric company Exagon engineering (pictured). In 2020 there should appear in its own category electric poluprovodnikov, reminds the edition Autoevolution.

It is not known yet what form the electric apparatus will be presented. But at least for the Duster wouldn’t be the first insight into the Motorsport, including a thorough processing of the entire structure. Suffice it to recall the mid-engined 850-horsepower rally car Duster No Limit with barbastelle from the Nissan GT-R, created several years ago for pikes Peak.

Indirectly, the prototype says about another. Brand Dacia, with the assistance of its partners, the group gains experience with electric drive. So, in the future can to please buyers of any serial electric vehicles. On this scenario, that is, the conversion of electric vehicles from expensive products in bulk and more affordable, and talk to other brands of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And even show you an example of conceptsthat hold the course. So in a perspective of road Duster on batteries may not be such a fantasy.

The pictures in the news car shows in the snow, but she was taken out and on the ice. The tires were studded.

There is an alternative explanation for the experiment. In the body of the Duster can hide units future electric SUV brand Alpine. Then we are not talking about budget machines, and on their direct opposites — prestigious models on batteries. In this case, Duster paves the way rival such SUVs as the Mercedes-Benz EQC, I Jaguar-Pace and Audi e-tron.

The agreement, which Toyota and Suzuki was signed in the spring of 2018, was quite abstract. Now partners have provided “specific details of cooperation,” of the eight points. Perhaps the biggest news is that Toyota has allowed Suzuki to clone the crossover RAV4 and wagon Corolla Touring Sports for the European market. And to produce twins with nameplates Suzuki will Toyota. It is only on the hybrid versions, since Suzuki is allowed globally to use the power plant to the THS (Toyota Hybrid System).

Benzoelektrosila wagon Corolla Touring Sports as a hatchback, comes in two types: aspirated 1.8 (122 HP) and 2.0 (180 HP). Actuator — front or full, CVT uncontested.

Suzuki clear benefits, what about Toyota? It needs support in the markets of India and Africa. So the sedan Suzuki Ciaz compact MPV Ertiga, hatch Baleno and SUV Vitara Brezza transformirovalsya model Toyota directly on the factory Suzuki. But Suzuki engines for the small car will be produced in Poland at the facilities of Toyota. Partners assert that “continue to fairly and freely compete with each other”. The rivalry did not prevent them to work together to develop the MPV C-segment and 2022-go to run crossover Vitara Brezza on the conveyor Indian plant Toyota Kirloskar Motor.
