We have another formal heir concept Roewe Vision-R. The size of the machine is slightly smaller Octavia and, of course, inferior to “ay-sixth”: the length 4601 mm (-70), width — 1818 (-17), height — 1489 (+29) wheelbase — 2680 (-35).

Cityradio Roewe i6, released on the Chinese market in March 2017, won the recognition in a month 6000-9000 units sold at base price of 94 800 yuan (965 000). More than a hundred thousand of sedans roam the roads. Younger brother Roewe i5 first showed the photographs, which may indicate its debut in November at the Guangzhou exhibition. Interestingly, one “aw-five” in the line of Roewe is already there and it is a pure electric universal Ei5.

“The barn” Ei5 is from 213 800 yuan, but the subsidies bring down the price to 133 800 (1.4 million rubles). Length, width, height — 4544×1818×1532 mm, base — 2665. Trunk volume varies 578-1456 L. the electric Motor produces 85 kW (116 HP, 255 N•m), battery capacity 35 kWh, enough for 301 km according to the cycle NEDC. Maximum speed — 145 km/h From March to end of may 2018 sold 5107 machines.

The front part of the sedan is completely copied from the wagon. The rest of her. The exhaust system is completely invisible, though the sedan is also electric.

For three-cylinder 1.0 turbo (125 HP, 170 N•m), the base of the “ay-sixth”, designated in the range Roewe i5 is not found, because instead of the hybrid relative electrical. Both petrol engine is endowed with a volume of 1.5 liters. Capacity of atmospheric — 120 HP turbo, which is placed on the i6, 169 force (250 N•m). Of transmission is only mentioned seven-step “robot” with two clutches. Recall, the Roewe brand is owned by the SAIC group, working closely with Volkswagen. Attempts to break beyond the China brand does not take long time, because in its Arsenal wound up a really strong model X Marvel.

Audi sq7. Издали SQ7 легко спутать с Q7 — настолько близко оформление передней части. Верные признаки SQ7 (кроме шильдиков) — сдвоенные вертикальные планки решётки радиатора (как у SQ8) вместо одинарных и корпуса зеркал в декоре «под алюминий», а не в цвет кузова, как на простых «ку-седьмых».

SQ7 from a distance easily confused with the Q7 — so close the front part. Sure signs SQ7 (except for signboards) — twin vertical slats of the grille (as SQ8) is single and the body of the mirrors in the decor in aluminium and not in body color as a simple “ku-seventh”.

That “charged” crossover Audi SQ7 TDI has been updated according to the General scheme together with a simple “ku-seventh”, the Germans said a month ago during the premiere of the restyled model Q7. But limited words, “esku” not showing. This has now been fixed: the manufacturer has declassified the appearance of a powerful diesel models and revealed some details.

In addition to the new rear lights connected by a silver strap, and a redrawn bumper should pay attention to the exhaust pipes. From the past SQ7 they were a four box and four round (like SQ8).

We have been told that out of diesel 4.0 V8 (435 HP and 900 N•m) combined with turbocharging, the engineers did not change. The motor is combined, as before, with eight-speed “automatic” Tiptronic and all wheel drive. On the spot and all the advantages of chassis: standard sports suspension, progressive steering and steering rear axle and active sport differential and optional Electromechanical active damping system rolls. Brake discs (front/rear) — diameter 400/370 mm, and the surcharge — plerodomiana (420/370 mm).

Most strongly changed the interior received a few touch screens on the centre console with a multimedia system MMI Navigation Plus, the communication module LTE Advanced, access point, Wi-Fi, voice control and Audi connect.

Differences from the Q7: dark leather plus Alcantara “in the database”, sports seats, brushed aluminium décor (for a fee will supply CFRP). Options: S plus seats with integral head restraints, embossed S on the backrest, pneumatic adjustment, lumbar support and upholstered in Valcona leather with diamond pattern.

In General, the number of options is large, and many refer to a variety of interior decoration and equipment (you can buy environmental lights switching on, 30 colors, four-zone climate control, air ionizer with fragrance and the sound system Bang & Olufsen 3D). And the program exclusive to Audi SQ7 SUV you can get a special exterior color Daytona Gray with the “pearl effect” (as the pictures in the news). In Europe, the updated car will appear in late September at a price of 94 900 euros (6.7 million) for the five and variation from 96 420 (of 6.81 million) for a seven-seater. In Russia, SQ7 and SQ8 his brother will go on sale in the first half of 2020.

cadillac escalade

Cadillac escalade. По последним данным, «пятый» Escalade (тут показана длинная версия ESV) поступит в продажу лишь в 2020 году как модель 2021-го. Полностью электрический вариант выйдет не сразу, а через некоторое время после запуска обычных исполнений.

According to the latest data, “the fifth” Escalade (here shown long ESV version) will be available only in 2020 as the model 2021-th. A fully electric version will come not immediately, but after some time after starting regular performances.

Concern GM intends to have the portfolio of two dozen electric vehicles by 2023. However, hardly anyone expected that among them will be a giant Cadillac Escalade new (fifth) generation. We are toldthat the insiders tipped him to aspirated V8 6.2 L87, biturbomotor 4.2 LTA and hybrid variation with charging from the wall (with economical “Quartet” or “six”). Now Society says Cadillac: other Escalade will appear in the all-electric modification.

While the electrified version of the model was the Escalade Hybridthat entered the market in 2008 (in the third generation the Escalade) and stayed in the arena until 2014. (In the current, fourth generation, interestingly, this version does not.)

The Escalade will move to the new platform T1XX, like the latest Chevrolet Silverado, but with an important difference: independent suspension front and rear. Obviously, this platform is built on various power settings, but not created from scratch as a “battery”. More surprising forecast Society Cadillac — Escalade EV will supposedly be able to run on a single charge of about 400 miles (644 km). This number is needed to compete with the crossover Tesla Model X. That by the time an Escalade EV will certainly be upgraded, says Cadillac Society. And now Model X drives 325 miles.

The hybrid system, the Escalade consisted of engine V8 6.0 LZ1 (turning off half of the cylinders) and two 60-kilowatt electric motors, integrated in a specially designed transmission (multiple planetary gear sets and clutches). The SUV could go only on electric. At such moments, the engines were powered by Nickel-metal hydride batteries. Worked and recovery. Total return — 384 HP, average consumption of 13.0 l/100 km and 19.6 from purely gasoline counterpart.

This story does not preclude the establishment of electric cars, GM electric on specialized platforms. In addition to the models on the “cart” BEV2 from the Bolt (e.g., crossover Bolt EUV) will come out with a whole galaxy of cars improved platform BEV3. According to Green Car Reports, it resembles the basis of The concept of AUTOnomy of 2002. A large crossover on the basis of build, and Cadillac (roughly in 2023-2024 years). Even more interesting is that it will electric pickup. Under which of the brands GM is still unclear. The truck is going to compete with such new products as Rivian R1T and Tesla Pickup. About it this summer, told GM President mark Reuss.

Bmw i3,Bmw i3s. Наш тест показывал, что i3s рулится точно, живо и с лёгким заднеприводным акцентом. Так что не стоит думать, будто электрокар с максималкой всего в 160 км/ч — это история исключительно про «экономичные поездки в городе».

Leonid Popov, July 17, 2019. Photos: AC Schnitzer

Our test showed that the i3s rulitsya accurately, vividly and with a light rear-wheel drive accent. So do not think the electric car with a top speed of just 160 km/h — this is a story solely about “economical travel in the city.”

The German Studio AC Schnitzer often mentioned in the news in connection with some powerful BMW. Get at least a 570-strong ACL2 based on a coupe-kopeck piece. But far less incendiary models, with a claim to environmental friendliness, in view of the Schnitzer got no time (hybrid i8). Therefore it is not surprising the latest proposal of the Germans: the package of improvements for the compact electric BMW i3s.

[embedded content]

For “AI-third” of the proposed new lowering springs and 20 mm, splitter, black aluminum cover for the iDrive controller, aluminum pedals, spoiler, protective film on top of the rear bumper, dilators gauge (12 mm on each side).

Usual BMW i3 for six years my life has undergone several upgrades, and two years ago got sportivnoi version index i3s. From the base it is not only the appearance, but also efficiency electric motor: 184 HP and 270 N•m against the original 170 HP and 250 N•m. the Dynamics of such electric cars is already possible to characterize as a vigorous — dispersal to hundred in 6.9 vs a 7.3 source S. So now Atelier AC Schnitzer was not to change anything in the electrical part of the BMW, but simply emphasized its playful nature with new parts in the exterior.

That the BMW i3 was not invented for the sake of saving money on fuel, they say, and the price tags. For example, the base i3 in the Russian catalogue of stamps costs 3 840 000 rubles, and sportively i3s — 4 140 000.

We add that the popularity of the i3 model in Europe is going up. Only in January — may this year implemented 13 357 instances, whereas for the whole of 2018 — 24 252, and for 2017 — 21 010. Apparently, it affected the update, conducted last fall, which brought the little one the traction battery with a capacity of 42.2 kW•h On the machines of yesteryear was 33,2 and 22 kWh.
