The dimensions were not changed: the length, width, height — 3395×1475×1675-1725 mm, wheelbase — 2520. Curb weight varies in the range of 850-930 kg ground Clearance is 140 mm. Dimension of tires — 155/65 R14 are 165/55 R15. Simple and clean design is promoted under the motto “New Simple!”.

In Honda’s lineup of N Series clearly outlines the purpose of each model: N-BOX — for family, N-VAN — and N-WGN (previously N-ONE) — personal vehicle for the soul. Although all this N-BOX is the most popular kei car in Japan, which evolyutsioniruet eighth year. In 2017 the “box” is moved to the new platform, and now the “second” N-WGN may use it. Builders managed to make the car even roomier, while the designers have given her a lovely appearance.

Front seats for easy entry/exit turn on 63 degrees, but more interesting is that these chairs are placed in the tank. So managed to win the extra millimeters. Opening the baggage door is enlarged for the sake of reducing the loading height. Now the compartment is divided into upper and lower sectors.

The main color of brown interior selected. At the request of customers steering wheel is now adjustable for height and reach and the driver’s seat can be raised. The front panel is redrawn: vents blowing lay down, the Central display, on the contrary, stood up. Media system and a “climate” — new.

The three-cylinder engine volume of 660 “cubes” in conjunction with the variator, as before, develops 64 HP and 104 N•m with overboost and 58 HP, 65 N•m without it. All-wheel drive instead of front-available any performance. The main achievement of the “second carriage” is the security system Honda Sensing, which, together with the adaptive cruise control is “in the database”, recognizes signs, pedestrians and cyclists, even at night, helping to avoid all possible collisions. By the way, the four Parking sensor in the rear bumper for the first time included in the standard kei-car.

Version N-WGN Custom explicitly created with an eye for the male audience, therefore the design of the exterior “aquadrene” and tinted, and the interior is dominated by black. Everything else is the same.

New N-WGN addressed exclusively to the Japanese market and will go on sale the ninth of August. Prices for regular microvan start at 1 274 400 yen (745 620 rubles), and Custom costs 1 512 000 (884 630). Honda plans to release 7000 cars a month. While the N-WGN closes the top ten most popular kei cars in Japan, but will surely rise in the rankings closer to the leader, because it is a Honda N-BOX.

History

Letter N means Norimono (“vehicle”), and WGN — a reduction from the word Wagon (“wagon”). Microvan refers to the range of N Series, including N-BOX and N-VAN. Dimensions kei-cars and the return of their engines severely limited, so Atelier Mugen can offer them only decor.

The “first” N-WGN debuted along with “luxury” version of the Custom in the fall of 2013 at the Tokyo motor show as the successor model N-ONE. Platform beginner shared fellow N-BOX, and the body the Japanese built from scratch. Microvena got the new engine in volume of 660 cm3 in air (58 HP, 65 N•m) and nadobna (64 HP and 104 N•m) version. The CVT was uncontested, but along with front-wheel drive was offered a full. The moment of transition into the second generation N-WGN was in the list of the best kei cars of Japan in tenth place (the first was held N-BOX).

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.
