The name on the ear is perceived as gen. The entire top management — Chinese (on the stage of chief engineer Thomas Zhang). The available money is enough to start, but not enough to implement plans, its capital-raising. The main priority of the Chinese market. International operations, including in the U.S. — part of a long-term strategy.

In Los Angeles the presentation of a new premium brand GYON, created by a Chinese company Sitech. It turned out that GYON — an acronym for Grow Your Own Niche (“grow your own” segment). Motto — Right Is Our Niche (loosely translated “our strength is in the truth”). The first electric car brand, contrary to expectations, has not been shown. Its premiere in the concept form will be held in January 2019 at the electronics show CES in Las Vegas, and the production version will appear in 2021-m. Ambitious plans and was devoted to all performances.

For their products GYON will develop two modular platforms. The battery will be “fantastic”: they are charged 100% for 15 minutes, and 10 — 80%. The reserve will be 580-600 km.

The event GYON announced the beginning of cooperation in the field of design with the Californian firm Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters, Inc. (GFMI). Like, she put her hand to the concept Maybach 6, authority her not to take and all that. (Actually GFMI — simply known in narrow circles of the contractor.) Over the next eight years GYON intends to create nine models in three segments: sedans, crossovers and SUV’s (probably talking about the SUVs). Startup alone will make the operating system G-OS, which will unite 4G connection and “intellectual technologies”. He will make the autopilot G-Pilot the third level.

The GYON firm is headed by Joe Chao (pictured), who previously headed the China office of DaimlerChrysler and built in the Beijing plant of Mercedes. The presentation of Chao invited his former boss Tom LaSorda, former President of Chrysler. “One of the biggest challenges for startups is manufacturing cars,” said 64-year-old veteran.

Among the investors of the company, if entered, the city government of Chengdu, where GYON is going to build two of its own plant, to ultimately reach a production capacity of 400,000 cars a year. While plants there, the startup will be able to use the power of your partner, FAW group. It is expected that the first model will cost from 100,000 to 200,000 yuan ($975 thousand rubles, a premium after all). The electric car will be able to recognize speech, faces, fingerprints, and gestures, plus will be “a new way of interaction.” Innovative air filtration system removes 99.7% of harmful particles from the salon. Director Joe Chao believes that GYON late comes into play: “Now is the ideal time to start, because we learned a lot from the experience of others.”

volkswagen passat

Volkswagen passat. В оспортивленной внешности американцам видится сходство с моделями Arteon и Jetta. Станут ли они это покупать, большой вопрос. Продажи Пассатов в Штатах достигли худших значений с 2012 года: 60 722 машины за 2017-й и 38 285 штук за 11 месяцев 2018-го.

In sportivnoi appearance Americans see similarities with models Arteon and Jetta. Whether they buy it, the big question. Sales of trade winds in the United States reached the worst values in 2012: 60 722 cars for 2017 and 38 285 pieces in 11 months of 2018.

The second generation of the sedan Volkswagen Passat for the U.S. market will be presented January 14 at the Detroit motor show. According to unofficial data, the model remained on the old platform PQ46, since the expensive transition to MQB recognized as inexpedient, — the popularity of sedans continues to fall.

In the engine range now there is only petrol turboservice 2.0 TSI (176 HP, 250 N•m), coupled with a six-speed “automatic”. Engine VR6 FSI 3.6 (284 HP, 350 N•m) recently sunk into oblivion together with the version of the Passat GT. Other variants are not expected as all-wheel drive, hybrid and a lot more, for example, digital tidy.

The wheelbase has not changed — 2803 mm, but of the old body panels remained only the roof. Sedans 2020 model year will be offered in four trim levels. Two of them today: Wolfsburg price of $25 295 (1.7 million rubles) and SE R-Line for $29 995 (1.9 million). Serious price increase is not expected.

Compare Passat overseas with ourEuropean little sense, which is not true of Chinese. Initially, he repeats the sedan for the United States and also lived to see the change of generation. He was transferred the same on the MQB why length reached 4933 mm (+61), and the wheelbase stretched to 2871 mm (+68). The design of the new “Chinese” and “American” are very similar, but to confuse them with each other will be difficult. Version for China looks intricate and richer. There is a plug-in hybrid Passat PHEV (211 HP, 400 N•m) with electric motor in the “robot” DSG.

Under the led lights of the Chinese Passat is the “cilia”, and in the stern, shines the name of the model. The tidy has replaced the 10-inch screen, a special piece of glass displays and projection display. To compare machine details, we need photos of “American”.

For just a “sporty” looks of the Passat in the US to buy unlikely. It seems that the second generation of the sedan for America will be last, and the plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, will take over the more popular model. By the way, in China the Passat too, not everything is rosy, because the emergence of a new generation revived the sales quite a bit: in September sold 15 810 12 cars against 203 in August. Chinese interesting Magotan. The American cityradio we will return after its premiere.

With the new technology of the inhabitants of the Audi should feel like at the Opera house. (Pictured is the prototype crossover e-tron is just at the stage of a Theater house in Copenhagen.)

The January CES show in Las Vegas will serve as the stage for the premiere of “a completely new entertainment experience on the road and a unique theater in the salon” from Audi. The consistent development of the autopilot, up to the fifth level, will free up more time for these activities. And in that case, if the car is parked, not you to fully immerse yourself in the world of cinema, theatre and music. The last feature the Germans can lay on a separate system Audi Immersive In-Car Entertainment, which will also be presented in Vegas.

The tour is boring and the Joker in crossover Audi e-tron: “Bug zapper (electric bug Zapper) sends a lightning bolt right to the wheels. When the electrons meet the protons, they make a great electric child… the Nvidia Tegra K1 shame your game room and individualsare profile of ambient lighting like a space ship…”

From the short announcement it is unclear whether the limited company is adapted for Immersive Audi “e-tron” or there will be some more independent concept of the interior (as has already happened more than once). In any case, the promised “one-stop Hollywood blockbusters or content provided by streaming services.” For completeness of sensations in the new generation models from Ingolstadt remains only to introduce the screen almost the whole width of the cabin. This we saw in the concepts of companies Byton, Honda and Harman.

Porsche cayenne. Предыдущий отзыв Кайенов проводился летом 2016 года в рамках глобальной кампании, решавшей проблему с педалью тормоза.

The previous review of the Cayenne was conducted in the summer of 2016 as part of a global campaignto solve the problem with the brake pedal.

The belt latch for the rear passenger sitting on the right, may break under a heavy load, for example, in the event of an accident. For this reason, Russia announced the recall of 334 crossovers Porsche Cayenne third generation. 186 of them are sold from September to November 2018, the other from August to October. Rosstandart provides a list of VIN codes. In addition to the free replacement lock, service men, will not do anything. Interestingly, a few days ago with the same diagnosis was revoked Volkswagen Touareg.

A defect is detected during internal testing. The problem provided provider restraints, Joyson Safety Systems. She admitted the mistake in choosing the material for the castle. Note, in North America the same opinion touched 415 Cayenne.

Unusual service action now brings together the Cayenne and Macan in the United States. Dealers invited about 250 vehicles, which includes cover for skiing. This accessory Porsche is fixed between the two seat of the second row with special belts. It turned out that when sewing the fastening of belts used the wrong thread. Probably because their case is securely fixed, and that the risk of injury.
