The official premiere of the “em-third” for the General public will be held in September at the Frankfurt auto show.

In recent times, talking about training a new generation of the sedan BMW M3, did we mention that the model will remain rear-wheel drive. So assured readers journalists of the edition Autocar. And now the Evo edition, with reference to the head of product planning at BMW M, Carsten Crouching, surprising: the M3 will receive a full drive xDrive Mas the fellow X3 M and X4 M, and the sedan M5.

After the declassification simple “treshki” the big surprise in appearance can be expected. Of course, the air intakes enlarged, modified bumpers, exhaust nozzles is four.

Unlike crossovers, which adapt the transmission from “em-fifth” clean mode rear-wheel drive has been eliminated (the x’s can make a strong accent to the rear axle, but not off the front axle to the end), “em-third” programme 2WD will be present. From X3 M and X4 M “em-third” and get the latest row byturbulence 3.0 in two versions forces: 480 HP and 600 N•m in the basic version and 510 HP, 600 N•m of variation in Competition. Recall that the model M3 in the past generation had a maximum of 460 HP and 600 N•m (variation of the M3 CS), and the basic “m” pull altogether 431 HP and 550 N•m.

The initial “em-third” should be noticeably more powerful than the former not just because of the change generation. Intermediate between conventional sedans of the third series and “emok” version M340i built up our muscles right up to 374 HP, 500 N•m.

Edition Evo predicts that the new “em-third” will weigh about 1.6 tonnes (now a sedan with a seven-step “robot” has a curb weight 1635 kg). Apparently, the machine will already by default equipped with vosmidiapazonnym “automatic”. The question is — will the Germans at least a special road version of “emka” give “mechanics” and rear wheel drive (no all wheel drive transmission, in principle) remains suspended in the air. According to unofficial data this option (with the prefix Pure) will appear, though it will be less powerful (to appear on the network 444 power), but lighter than their counterparts.

Bonus

The looks of the wagon of the third series of the new generation, we already know almost everything. However do not be amiss to present fresh images from the test, and also remind that the model needs to replenish range three-pointers this year.

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.
