The length of the model is 4110 mm, width — 1790, height — 1680 wheelbase — 2565. Clearance in the initial state at 150 mm and 110 when fully loaded. Curb weight — 1400 kg boot capacity — 650/1250 l (unfolded/folded second row).

German solar car Sono Sion is gradually moving from preproduction to production. According to the latest data, reports Autoevolution, production of wonders will begin in the second half of 2019, while actual sales will start in 2020. However, now the machine is assembled 6686 orders, according to the firm on its website. At the same time appeared some specifications of the model.

The electric motor develops 80 kW (109 HP) and 250 N•m (rear). About the maximum speed of 140 km/h we said about overclocking yet: the hundred-seat hatch is gaining nine seconds. In regen mode the motor converted to a generator, producing power up to 50 kW.

Recall that the hatchback is covered with a Sion 330 solar cells systems viSono. They can recharge the battery of the electric vehicle in the Parking lot and on the move, providing it “free” a certain part of the total mileage. The total area of these panels is 7.5 m2 and a rated power of 1.2 kW. It is clear that the practical development of their energy will depend heavily on light, that is, from the weather.

Air filter of moss breSono left in the specification. Then there’s heated seats, air conditioning, power Windows, two airbags, an entertainment system with a screen of ten inches and four speakers, ABS and electronic stabilization system, led lights.

In the company Sono Motors has calculated that the daily electricity production of these cells will gradually change depending on the month. In December and January it will be at a minimum and should correspond to four kilometers a day only “through the light”, and the peak generation will occur in may (28 gratuitous miles a day) and June (29 km per day). July and August is also looking good — there machine will provide for 26 km per day free.

In may of this year, the Sono firm has decided on the supplier of lithium batteries for your hatchback. Selected German company ElringKlinger AG, a major manufacturer of automotive components with plants around the world. Announced a contract for several hundred million euros for a period of eight years.

In General, the machine is powered by the traction battery. There are changes from 2017. Previously, the Germans talked about the two versions of the batteries of 14.4 and 30 kWh, then said that will leave only a 30-kilowatt. But in the final characteristics are the new settings: battery will contain 35 to 45 kWh, and the unit weight is about 250 kg. the power Reserve on a single charge nominally retained the same as was declared before, is 250 km, but he’s called “real in all weather conditions”. And this is the value excluding the contribution of solar panels.

Bi-directional charging system biSono allows, if necessary, to replenish a dead battery one hatchback from the more “seasoned” fellow. What to external support, the 50-kW port standard CCS will provide battery charging 80% in 30 minutes and to 100% in an hour. There is also a charging connector standards SchuKo and Type 2.

The full price of piatigorski Sono Sion is 20 000 euros (1.53 million rubles), including the price of the battery (4000 euros), which can also be rented. Guarantee the Germans a little clipped. Last year they talked about 150 000 km (or two years, whichever comes first), now only about 100 000 km. when it comes to service and repairs, Sono offers its customers to use its services, and other care centers, which developed a detailed manual, including working with high voltage components.

audi r8 plus competition

Audi r8,Audi r8 plus competition. Все образцы будут окрашены в цвет Suzuka Gray. По краям бампера — антикрылышки (канарды), подсмотренные у гоночных версий. В остальном оформление носа — обычное, только добавлен «чёрный» дизайн-пакет: глянцевые окантовки решётки радиатора, воздухозаборников спереди и вентиляционных окон сзади.

All samples will be painted in the color Suzuka Gray. The edges of the bumper — anticrisis (kenardy), all borrowed from the racing versions. Otherwise, registration of the nose is common, only added the “black” design pack: glossy edging of the grille, air intakes, front and rear ventilation Windows.

In November ten Americans will be able to buy limited edition Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package. This is the coupe edition based on the R8 V10 plus especially for US. The car received a complete package of performance parts from Audi Sport. Version Competition not more powerful “plus”, but has more downforce and a little bit easier.

Version Competition by default put black racing seats-buckets with red stitching, full leather trim including door cards, steering wheel in Alcantara with the zero mark, 550-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers, shift paddles of carbon fiber.

Aerodynamics and should, first of all to give this version more speed on circular tracks with a large number of turns. Only 150 km/h the downforce is there, more than double the original model (now equivalent to 52 kg), and at 315 km/h grows up to 250 kg, a hundred higher than the serial “a plus”. Payback — increased drag. Because the maximum speed there is only 315 km/h instead of 330. Acceleration is not specified, and the common V10 plus — 3,2 with up to hundreds. There are about the same.

In carbon for aerodynamic kit also includes a large splitter, expanders sills, a fixed rear wing on the pylons with the inverted fastening, flaps at the corners of the rear bumper and diffuser with developed longitudinal ribs. Tires — Pirelli P Zero.

Decoration model — matte black, fully machined 20-inch wheels, the same wheels racing version of the R8 GT4 (that, however, the diameter is 18). They saved the compartment 12 kg curb weight. Another quart engineers have dropped, putting the titanium base plate carbon fiber brake pads. Other features: dynamic steering, adjustable three parameters suspension type coilover.

The 5.2 V10 engine (610 HP and 560 N•m) has not changed. By the way, under the curtain of the life of the first generation R8 she is also a Competition specifically for US, and there was “only” 578 “horses”. However, it’s more than not just a simple “er-eighth”, but modification of the GT.

Dealers of Audi in the U.S. model R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition will be in November. Valued this car at $237 350 (at current exchange rate from 15.58 million), plus another $2550 should pay for shipping and taxes. For comparison, the serial R8 V10 plus costs in America $194 400. We will add that in the next few months the entire family awaits the Audi R8 update, which will affect the appearance (slightly) and on the technique. Atmospheric dozen should slightly improve in power, and as never before, the initial versions will be forced V6 unit 2.9. However, official information about such a radical step no.

Mercedes a,Mercedes a amg. В новой серии кадров машина предстала с минимальным камуфляжем, тогда как в прошлый раз заклеено было все, что только можно.

In a new series of machine frame appeared with minimal camouflage, while the last time was pasted over everything.

Buyers in the United States, with a particular interest in looking at new spy shots of the sedan Mercedes-AMG A 35. The fact that A 35 hatchback to the American market will not reach, but the four-door sibling will be sold. In Russia a simple sedan A-class will appear for sure, and no “heated” it will not be. So, look to the frames.

On the roof of A hatch 35 engineers hoisted a full wing, but smooth aft of the saloon to spoil the “bench” the Germans did not, limiting the spoiler, although not-so-little. This is not the case, not counting the body type of course.

Supercharged “four” M 260 with a return of 306 HP and 400 N•m, combined with a seven-step “robot” AMG SpeedShift DCT and all-wheel drive 4Matic, accelerates the hatchback A 35 to a hundred in 4.7 s. We do not think that the sedan will show a difference of at least a tenth of a second. As of piatigorski, there must be added to the amplifiers stiffness of the body, an electronically shock absorbers, AMG Ride Control, an enhanced switching of the driving modes and settings of the stabilization system.

Exhaust pipes and diffuser — same as “warmed-up” hatchback.

The front especially has nothing to hide. The same mesh in the grille, the same two horizontal straps as the hatch. But in the corners of the bumper are not set kenardy (small spoiler). It seems that in terms of aerodynamics of the sedan, A 35 would be less “evil” than similar pyatidverka.

Given the importance to the overseas market, we can assume the premiere of the sedan, A 35 or in November in Los Angeles, or in January in Detroit. In the first half of 2019, the model will arrive on the market. If someone would think it “small” will need to wait for the family of “lighters” with the index 45. There are at least preparing the hatchback A-class, the crossover GLA and liftback CLA. Sedan A-class in this version, the company also likely will be built. “Forty-five” under the hood will be installed again “two liters”, but with hybrid additions (including waiting for electric compressor), while the capacity will reach 400-410 HP
