Volvo xc90. Бронированные кроссоверы и внедорожники в новостях попадаются не столь часто, как седаны или лимузины. А данный пример тем более интересен, поскольку марка Volvo редко отмечается в этой сфере — в сравнении, скажем, с «немцами».

Armored crossovers and SUVs in the news across not as often as sedans or limousines. And this example is especially interesting because the Volvo brand rarely achieved in this field, in comparison with, say, “Germans.”

Letters VR8 accompanying description of crossover Volvo XC90 Armoured, is not the type eight-cylinder motor and protection class standard VPAM BRV 2009/ERV 2010, which means countering the bullets of 7.62 armor-piercing core, and the resistance to detonation of 15 kg of TNT at two meters from the side at a height of one meter.

To protect the inhabitants of the used armor plates from high strength steel with a thickness of 10 mm and bullet-proof glass thickness of 50 mm.

Based version of Armoured equipment on the T6 AWD Inscription, which, due to the protection components up to approximately 1.4 t gross vehicle weight (with five passengers) went up to 4490 kg, which demanded enhanced suspension and brakes. Directly installing the armor deals with the German company TRASCO Bremen GmbH receiving the workpiece from Torslanda.

Orders for heavy Armoured XC90 Swedes are already taking, and the first deliveries will begin at the end of this year.

Volvo also announced the development of a lighter version of the XC90 is protected and armored crossover XC60, which in comparison with the original machines without protection would be heavier only to 250 lbs. And heavy if the above model is mainly designed for dignitaries, the other two are aimed at a wider audience including the private owners, and the diplomatic corps, and the police. More light armored Volvo will be the final fine-tuning in Brazil, and sell since beginning 2020 they will be both in Europe and in Latin America. Let’s add, that recently was presented to the serial drone XC90.

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.
