Firm Volkswagen plans to increase the share of cars assembled in Russia, which would be equipped with engines of local production (in the photo), but at the same time to export Kaluga engines to the enterprises in other countries.

The engine manufacturing plant of Volkswagen in Kaluga, according to the Agency “RIA Novosti” with reference to the head of “Volkswagen group Rus” Marcus Ozegovich, should in the coming years to double its capacity from 150 to 300 thousand engines per year. It comes as the increase in the output of atmospherical 1.6 ЕА211 and about the development in Russia of the turbo engine 1.4 TSI (Polo, it produces 125 HP and 200 N•m).

By the way, the car plant in Kaluga, located next to the motor, in November last year released the 500,000 th Volkswagen Polo. It appeared to be an instance of the 110-strong unit 1.6 and six-speed “automatic”.

The company has applied for SPIK (special investment contract), which provides for investment of 40 billion rubles within five years. Here is not only the modernization of the propulsion enterprise, but also the localization of new models of the Volkswagen group in Russia. For example, the crossover Skoda Karoq, according to Ozegovich will come to our market at the end of 2019 first as the imported model. But later the company intends to release him to us. And if we talk about units, it is under discussion also localization in Russia “machines”, with respect to the terms of which Volkswagen is currently negotiating with the Ministry of industry and trade.

Quick release bonnet and rear from talking about sports the purpose of the prototype. Upon closer inspection, also found the skeleton in the cabin and racing seats.

Unusual Dacia Duster first generation (and even previous) recently spotted by the photographers near the Arctic circle. The engineers of Renault Sport Department has tested this unit on one of the frozen lakes. The car is noteworthy in many respects. First, it is fully electric. Secondly, racing and three-door (or rather two, because the back opens with no wing, and a body section).

On the front of the prototype mounted Brembo brake calipers, rear — Renault Alpine.

Explanation the prototype, there are several. First: experts Dacia and Renault Duster use this as a prototype for testing some solutions racing all-wheel drive electric vehicle. This brings to mind the French championship races on ice Andros Trophy, which was made by Dacia. Interestingly, it even was used adapted ice track compact MPV Lodgy. However, the next racing partner apparatus can be battery-operated Duster.

In the championship, the Andros Trophy for several years there is an electric class. It uses the same rear-wheel drive 122-horsepower electric company Exagon engineering (pictured). In 2020 there should appear in its own category electric poluprovodnikov, reminds the edition Autoevolution.

It is not known yet what form the electric apparatus will be presented. But at least for the Duster wouldn’t be the first insight into the Motorsport, including a thorough processing of the entire structure. Suffice it to recall the mid-engined 850-horsepower rally car Duster No Limit with barbastelle from the Nissan GT-R, created several years ago for pikes Peak.

Indirectly, the prototype says about another. Brand Dacia, with the assistance of its partners, the group gains experience with electric drive. So, in the future can to please buyers of any serial electric vehicles. On this scenario, that is, the conversion of electric vehicles from expensive products in bulk and more affordable, and talk to other brands of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And even show you an example of conceptsthat hold the course. So in a perspective of road Duster on batteries may not be such a fantasy.

The pictures in the news car shows in the snow, but she was taken out and on the ice. The tires were studded.

There is an alternative explanation for the experiment. In the body of the Duster can hide units future electric SUV brand Alpine. Then we are not talking about budget machines, and on their direct opposites — prestigious models on batteries. In this case, Duster paves the way rival such SUVs as the Mercedes-Benz EQC, I Jaguar-Pace and Audi e-tron.
