The car shown to the public in the exhibition of electronics CES in Las Vegas. On the market Leaf with “plus” will appear first at home, in Japan. It will happen in the coming days. In the spring, “long-range” version will be available for purchasing in the US, and in the middle of the year will be available in Europe.

About the upcoming appearance in the family of electric cars Nissan Leaf variations with extended range of travel became known in the end of last year. Expectations are more than justified: in the current version of the Nissan Leaf 3.ZERO e+ Limited Edition capacity of the traction battery is increased from the original 40 kWh to 62.

In addition to the new battery modification e+ and put a more powerful motor. Its impact increased with the base 150 HP to 217 and torque — 320 N•m to 340. With 80 km/h to 120 this hatch is accelerated by 13% faster (the exact setting firm not led), and the maximum speed increased by 10% (from 144 km/h — so, now 158).

Mileage per charge (manufacturer forecast cycle WLTP) increased from 270 to 385 km. In the cycle WLTC Japan “fortieth” version of the Bodice are 322 km, and the “62nd” — 458. Finally, the most optimistic numbers gives a fairly soft standard JC08: 400 km with a battery of 40 kWh and 570 km in the new version of e+. The us EPA cycle, on the contrary, the most expensive. In the Bodice and Bodice e+ turns 241 and 364 km, respectively (thus, “Japanese” almost caught up with Bolt from Chevy, with its 383 km, however, the significantly less Bodice size).

Standard battery of Bodice second generation consists of 192 lithium cells, and increased (pictured) — from 288. Capacity increased by 55%, however, the external dimensions of the block has changed little (under it had to raise the body five millimeters). Specific energy density here is 25% higher than in the baseline battery. To the left is the motor with gear and power electronics.

The port of DC in the Bodice with a “plus” can take from “quick” charging column up to 100 kW of power (standard Leaf up to 50), for time fueling bigger battery in this way more than the younger (about 40 minutes for 80%). The warranty on the older the battery is the same as in the initial eight years or 160 000 km.

The equipment configuration 3.ZERO includes autopilot ProPILOT, updated multimedia system with eight-inch display, navigation “from door to door” and improved NissanConnect app EV.

Index 3.ZERO appearing at the Bodice in Europe, suggests a rich equipment of the machine (one of the well-equipped version formerly 2.ZERO), and the console Limited Edition means that the original “long-range” Leaf will be sold in the Old world in the form of a rich limited edition. Its circulation, by the way, will be 5000. Orders dealers already started to accept as “just” 3.ZERO.

No doubt, the “extended” version of e+ will add to the popularity of the model, which for two generations (since the end of 2010) have already crossed the threshold of the total sales of 380,000 units.

As for prices, already announced the price for the version “plus” for Japan. There’s the Nissan Leaf, the e+ will be sold in a complete set of X, and it is initially not the poorest. Leaf e+ X is 4 162 320 yen (2.57 million rubles), while the Leaf X with the youngest battery 3 661 200. That is, the fee for increased range of travel is 501 120 yen, or 309 000 rubles at the current exchange rate. European Leaf 3.ZERO e+ Limited Edition has received a price tag of 45 500 Euro (3.5 million rubles), while 3.ZERO no “e-plus” in the title — 39 900 euros.

The current plug prices on a Patriot is from 777 000 rubles for the equipment of the “classic Fleet” to 1 083 000 for Maximum.

In the segment of medium-sized SUVs once again updated UAZ Patriot is in the lead by a wide margin (end 2018 — 15 422 instance). This is due to the impressive traffic, and prices which, even after growth last fall, and another, already in 2019, still remain markedly lower than those of rivals. Now UAZ has decided to attract more attention to the model, increasing the available options for primary and secondary configurations.

During the last update the car has received more powerful motor and upgraded front and rear suspension, steering, clutch and “mechanics” improved sound insulation.

So, for “classic” and “Optimum” since February, can be ordered foglights, previously unavailable to them. In the “Classic” version comes multimedia system with touch screen, six speakers and navigation, extra heater, hitherto optional equipment is next in rank “Optimum” (for 32 000 rubles, and 9100, respectively). In the past, too, there is a new option pack — Climate control with climate control and grey insulated glass. Now such a set is optional (16 500) for the more expensive “Prestige”, and “Max” is the default. But in “the Prestige”, again from February, you will have the option in the form of Parking sensors front and rear, and rear-view camera, now present only in the “Maximum”.

Yet there are available alloy wheels of different design (20-30 thousand), locking rear differential (38 900), pre-heater with timer (44 900), heated windshield and rear seat on the “Prestige” (19 900), winch plus steering protection (49 900). And by “Classics” you can buy air conditioning and heated front seats for 69 900.

We add that the most affordable complete set of “classic Fleet” (777 000) is as empty as “classic” (more or less important, there is only driver airbag), but it is one of the pre-reform suspension and the old engine 2.7 (a 135-strong ZMZ 40906 is 150-strong ZMZ 409051 in all other versions of the Patriot). Simple classic starts with 798 000. Intermediate (“Optimum”), which already has a passenger, airbag and air conditioning, worth 899 000, and for the “Prestige” multimedia complex on Android, and a seven-inch touch screen, cruise control, heated front seats and steering stabilization system and a bunch of electronic assistants will have to pay 1 011 000.

The owners of gyrometers want to distribute traffic

Such transport is often used by children and adolescents. If the norm is accepted, then the audience may be significantly reduced.

Control over the actions of the owners of gyrometers, Segways, sigview and other small electric vehicles considered in the state Duma of the Russian Federation: on this topic was a round table. It is proposed to equate it to the moped: in this case, these “drivers” will be subject to the requirements of the rules of the road. The initiative came from the head of the Union of pedestrians Vladimir Sokolov.

Riding a scooter

According to the current legislation, to mopeds (light quadricycles) or the desired license category “M” or any other open category (the most common – “B”). If they equate gyrometer, Segways, etc., then their owners will also need a driver’s license.

Regulation segment is necessary because of pedestrians. During the round table the attendees remembered several cases: the first man on the electric skateboard was hit by a woman who fell and suffered a severe spinal injury; second driver electric skateboard collided with the pensioner, causing the latter died on the spot. Accident, these incidents can not be called, since from the point of view of the law in the pedestrian zone and collided with two pedestrians.

Segways - Journee Sans Voiture, Paris 2015

According to Vladimir Sokolova, similar cases are not uncommon (however, the statistics he had not). In order to be able to attract such “drivers” to justice, they should be subject to the relevant rules. Today they have been officially recognized by pedestrians and, in fact, can move in respective areas at a speed from 20 km/h on gyrometer to 50 km/h on a Segway.

Vladimir Sokolov offers to prohibit the movement of the small electric vehicle on the sidewalks. Agree not all. During the round table a proposal was made simply to limit the speed for those traveling on the Segways, Segways, etc: for pedestrian areas – not above 25 km/h, for bike paths, 60 km/h. the Catch, however, is that this electric vehicle has no speedometer.


It is curious that Russia is now allowed to create “Bike zone”, where it is allowed to stop motorists and motorcyclists, provided that they give way to all other traffic participants, and their speed will not exceed 20 km/h. it Turns out, the owners sigview will be able to drive on such roads three times faster? Or in this case, also will be subject to the terms and moped riders?

In Russia in 2018, has sold about 32 thousand Segways and about 10 thousand monowheels. Often buy them for children and teenagers. Recall that the right category “M” is issued from the age of 16. This means that in case of approval the proposal of the head of the Union of pedestrians, the number of customers of sellers of small electric vehicle, most likely, will be considerably reduced.

Last summer reported on the proposal of the Deputy from the LDPR faction, which advocated the registration of alternative transport.

geely fy11

Geely fy11. От стандартного этот вариант отличается круговым обвесом в цвет кузова (вместо «чёрного пояса»), накладками на двери, двумя парами выпускных патрубков, затемнёнными элементами, алой вставкой в решётке и большими колёсами. Можно считать FY11 кросс-седаном, как Renault Arkana.

From the standard this is a circular body kit in body color (instead of black belt), lining on the door, two pairs of exhaust pipes, darkened elements, al insert in the grille and large wheels. FY11 can be considered cross-sedans, like Renault Arkana.

The company Geely to be congratulated on the development of the first model on the platform of the CMA (not to be confused with BMA). It unites coupe FY11 with a compact “Swede” Volvo XC40 and differs from Satin, resting on its own “cart” Geely. The mid-size crossover with “crushed” the roof, the idea will become the biggest and most expensive SUV in the range, and therefore, waiting for the flagship we have.

The issue of the official pictures shows about the imminent premiere. However, the Russian office Geely today sent along a teaser with the words about the similarities of the car with a predatory cat, grille “in the form of a concentric universe” and running lights like the “digital boom”. Say, a design center in Shanghai has found a new direction.

Recall the dimensions: length, width, height — 4605×1878×1643 mm, wheelbase — 2700. It is not surprising that the dimensions of the rookie close to the platform model Lynk & Co 01: 4530×1855×1654, 2730 mm.

Architecture interior Geely FY11 is more similar to a compact Geely SX11than all the other models in the CMA-kneading. This is a standard interior, no red inserts and stitching, and veneers “under carbon”. It’s funny that the handrail on the console can be confused with a “poker” of the Parking brake.

Under the hood of the SUV FY11 if prescribed turboservice 2.0 (in Swedish terminology T5), derated from 254 to 238 HP at the same torque 350 N•m. there are rumors about the use volvovsky Turbotronic 1.5 in the hybrid setup of the PHEV. In short, the forecasts are also on the Coupe, rolling brand Lynk & Co. Where, by the way, coupe from Volvo?
