So far, everything points to the fact that the battery firstborn of the brand will be a new compact Mazda CX-30, whose platform Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture originally designed for the electrification.

The President of Mazda Motor Corporation Akira Marumoto in an interview with Automotive News, said: “We are developing a new electric platform with the Toyota, but first present our own electric car on the architecture of the Mazda in the year 2020.” I wonder what brand Subaru, find themselves in a similar situation, turned their research, giving their results to the “common pot”. Mazda decided to bring the project to the end. Apparently, the question of principle. At the same time the official confirmed that the EV-model will get the motor Wankel: “the Development of the rotary engine continues even after the cessation of the production RX-8. His first field of application will increase the cruising range for electric vehicles.”

Although the segment of large sedans is experiencing not the best times, the Mazda 6, according to Marumoto, death threatens: “This segment is shrinking in Europe, but we build cars not just for her. There is still a certain demand in China and in the United States.”

One of the biggest challenges for Mazda’s now — reduction of emissions of co2 across the ruler. Otherwise, the company will have to pay huge fines (according to IHS, Markit, talking about 624 euros per car with a further increase to 814). While the average level is estimated to JATO Dynamics, is to 135.2 g/km, while in 2021 the norm will be 95 g/km and the need For this electric vehicle, a plug-in hybrid (which will be in 2021 or 2022) engine and innovative Skyactiv-X. “Ultimately we will reach the goal, although we will have some challenges in 2020,” admitted Akira Marumoto.

Meanwhile to abandon diesels, Mazda does not intend: “the Number of compact cars on heavy fuel will decline further, but among crossovers such as CX-5, the proportion stabiliziruemost. Look at the Big German three: introducing electric cars, they continue to develop new diesel engines. We believe that SUVs and large sedans will be the most effective diesel combined with electric motor. Because the Skyactiv-X is sort of a hybrid between petrol and diesel engines, we can use this technology to diesel engines of new generation”.

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.

Compare the size with a hatchback Ceed. Length 4395 mm (+85), width — 1826 (+26), height — 1483 (+36) wheelbase — 2650 mm (parity). The front overhang has grown by 25 mm (905), rear 60 (840 mm). Clearance varies 174-184 mm (Sid 150).

In August, pseudoclosure Kia XCeed will be produced in Slovak Zilina along with other Seeders. In the third quarter of this year, the cross-hatch will appear on the European market, but the launch in Russia is open to question. Meanwhile, XCeed should be in the lineup a step below model Sportage. The rookie is built on the same platform as the K2, that and Ceed (McPherson strut plus memorycache), but varies with the family technical.

Alas, to be all-wheel drive XCeed can not. But in its front suspension shock absorbers are installed inside the hydraulic end buffers. A new dynamic damper to the rear cross member minimizes road noise and vibration. The springs though are longer sidovsky due to increased clearance, mitigated by a 7% front and 4% rear. Control unit electric power steering got other settings. From body panels in common with the led are only front doors.

The boot capacity is 426-1378 l vs sidovsky 395-1291. Loading height in favor of the design is increased by 60 mm. Dimension of tyre: standard — 205/60 R16, option — 235/45 R18. There are 12 body colours, including the exclusive Quantum ICSID yellow Yellow (pictured).

Initial XCeed is equipped with petrol Turbotronic 1.0 T-GDi (120 HP, 172 N•m) and six-speed “mechanics”, which is friends with all the other motors. It turbochetverki 1.4 T-GDi (140 HP, 242 N•m) and 1.6 T-GDi (204 HP, 265 N•m) and 1.6 CRDi turbodiesel Smartstream in two versions: 115 HP, 280-300 nm and 136 HP, 280-320 nm. Maximum thrust it produces with semidiapazonnym “robot”. Other automatic boxes there.

Landing in Inside by 42 mm higher than the side. Virtual tidy Supervision diagonal of 12.3 inches — optional. “Database” is an analogue set with a monochrome screen (3.8 inch) or TFT colour display (4.2 inches). In the center stands the touchscreen by 10.25.

All brakes — ventilated disc. System Drive Mode Select offers Normal and Sport modes, changing the response of the power unit and the steering force. The security complex includes auto brake, dead zones and markings, automatic headlights and so on. With a quick XCeed (1.6 T-GDi) sprints to hundred in 7.5 s, the slowest (1.0 T-GDi) needs to 11.3. Higher maximum speed — 220 km/h.
