Maximum thrust it produces with semidiapazonnym “robot”. Other automatic boxes there.

Landing in Inside by 42 mm higher than the side. Virtual tidy Supervision diagonal of 12.3 inches — optional. “Database” is an analogue set with a monochrome screen (3.8 inch) or TFT colour display (4.2 inches). In the center stands the touchscreen by 10.25.

All brakes — ventilated disc. System Drive Mode Select offers Normal and Sport modes, changing the response of the power unit and the steering force.

Laffite X-Road Local Motors Rally Fighter and other off-road sports cars of our time ― variations on the theme of the famous French coupe Mega Track. Close in ideology model appeared in 1992. It was a car with a length of five meters and a width of more than two, weighing nearly 2.3 tons, and with a body made of composite materials. Squat body based on the off-road chassis. All-wheel drive powertrain was supplemented by a viscous coupling, and ground clearance with air suspension was 220-300 mm. be was wheels with tire size 285/55 R20 at the front and 325/50 R20 rear.

Our database ahead of the rear axle, the French engineers have installed a giant motor ― Mercedes V12 6.0 (394 HP, 570 N•m) from the legendary “six” W140. And paired with the M120 engine worked the same five-speed automatic transmission that was put on the Mercedes S600 sedan. Mega Track was unique, and therefore terribly expensive ― about $400 000.

Judging by the schedule, right behind the chief KIA Han Woo Pak, electric cars brands now occupy only 2% of the global market for pure electric models that the company is clearly not satisfied.

The strategy to gain a leading position Kia Motors named Plan S. the highlights announced last week the company’s CEO Han Woo Park. Until the end of 2025, the Corporation invests in the development and updating of a model range of $25 billion By the same date, the portfolio of the brand will be a total of 11 electric vehicles. They have sold 500 thousand pieces per year and occupy 6,6% of the world market of electric cars (alas, excluding China, where the proportion would not be so impressive). At the same time cars with pure electric or hybrid drive will make up a quarter of sales, KIA.

Under the lamp says “electric” and painted sedan, compact and conventional crossovers, and a minivan. Intriguing.

Currently the niche of electric cars in the global markets have a KIA SUV work e-Soul (452 km course with the older of the two proposed batteries) and e-Niro (up to 455 km), and in China is sold to local specific battery range: crossover KX3 EV and sedan 300 E (and for other nominal reserve charge equal to 300 km). A new wave of electric models will start with an unnamed crossover which the Koreans show in 2021. It will be created on a unique platform designed exclusively as an electric car and nothing else. The range on a single charge will exceed 500 km, and completing a battery of high-speed “column” will be 20 minutes.

Other models, zero-emission, conceived in the framework of the strategy, to identify did not, although previously appeared information about the possible addition of pure electric variations in a range of Sid. In the KIA present the development of light commercial vehicles (delivery vans, Shuttle-bus) in the battery based on a platform borrowed the skateboard from the British company’s Arrival, which is a conglomerate Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors signed an agreement about partnership and investment in just a few days ago.

The last experiment of Kia Motors in electric cars: the concept of Futuron, shown in November 2019. The direct repetition of its forms in the serial car will not, but some similarities in the sides, headlamps and lanterns may be expected.

Models with a classic power plant will not be forgotten, and they should be paid special attention to emerging markets, where will be expanded to build a full cycle and the proposed line with the local context. In particular, we are talking about the continuation of the run at different markets of the updated crossover Sportage and about the imminent appearance of the new Sorento. The share of crossovers in the global sales of the brand (again excluding China) needs by 2022 to grow from 50 to 60%. And to the same year, KIA will develop its platform to auto-pilot level 4 and 5 in a joint venture with the company Aptiv. Commercial introduction of this platform will start in 2024 after a phase of tests in 2023-m.

Батарейный паркетник Subaru показался в виде прототипа

Сегодня марка Subaru провела в Токио брифинг для журналистов, посвящённый развитию технологий. Выяснилось, что разработка оппозитников Boxer, полного привода и систем безопасности типа EyeSight продолжится, но теперь, «в период глубокой трансформации отрасли», надо заботиться о защите окружающей среды. Все модели Subaru получат гибридные либо чисто электрические версии к 2035 году. Тем не менее в 2030-м на «зелёные» легковушки будет приходиться до 40% глобальных продаж. В доказательство серьёзности намерений был показан полноразмерный макет EV-кроссовера, который Subaru строит при поддержке материнской Тойоты.

Внимание привлекают усталый «взгляд» маленьких фар, крупные воздуховоды «на щеках», законопаченная решётка, чёрный глянцевый «пояс», отсутствие дверных ручек, камеры-зеркала, толстенные задние стойки, «картинная рама» фонарей и выпирающий задний бампер.

На картинках вверху — тот же макет в виде рендеров. Паркетник станет первенцем Subaru на тойотовской платформе e-TNGA (на «рентгене» внизу), получит компоненты от китайской BYD и выйдет на рынок до 2025 года.

Основная часть брифинга была призвана закрепить долгосрочные цели. К 2031 году эмиссия углекислого газа от заводов, офисов и других объектов компании снизится на 30% против уровня 2017-го. К 2050-му средние выбросы CO2 от новых автомобилей Subaru по всему миру должны сократиться на 90% по сравнению с 2010-м. Экологические инициативы коснутся почти всех сфер деятельности марки: от НИОКР, закупок и производства до логистики, продаж, эксплуатации и повторной переработки. «Мы будем использовать уникальный характер и технологические инновации Subaru, чтобы внести свой вклад в создание общества, свободного от углерода», — подытожил президент Томоми Накамура.
