Geneva 2017: five alternative propulsion vehicles
In the living Room of Geneva of 2017 had the opportunity to meet the latest prototypes and models of alternative propulsion market. Although these may not have had the importance and prominence that they had in the past Hall of Paris 2016, in Geneva, we were able to attend the arrival of some of the latest developments in this area.
Precisely, in this section we find one of the negative surprises of the contest swiss, since after Paris 2016 Detroit, 2017, we hoped to discover a new concept of the future electric range of Volkswagen.
Even so, the cast of models was very large, with presentations quite important, as the new versions of hybrid, plug-in of the KIA Niro, and the Hyundai Ioniq, the Niro PHEVS 2017, and Hyundai Ioniq Pulg-In. As well as the prototype that anticipates the project of Pininfarina with Hybrid Kynetic, the H600.
1. Artega Scalo Superelettra
Artega Scalo Superelettra
The newly resurrected and small German manufacturer Artega presented in Geneva final version of your project Scalo, presented for the first time a few years ago. On this occasion, Artega had the Scallo Superelettra in collaboration with Carrozzeria Touring, who are responsible for making your final design.
The Scallo Superelettra account with a electrical wiring diagram of more than 1,000 horses and a style that derives clearly from previous products of Artega, as the previous Scalo or the original Artega GT.
the intentions of The manufacturer go through to manufacture a limited series of only 50 units, whose production will start in 2019, so we still have to be able to see this sporty craft in the streets.
2. Jaguar i-Pace
The i-Pace was not a real innovation of Geneva. In the living room swiss just we had the opportunity to be able to see it for the first time on european soil, where in addition to premiered with a new red, Photon Network. A shade is very attractive, which also conferred on him an air closest to a production vehicle.
The i-Pace was presented really in the united States at the beginning of the year, and is the advancement of the the first electric model of the brand british.
The concept has two electric motors, installed each of them on a shaft, with a combined power of 400 HP and 700 Nm of maximum torque. Its batteries allow you to standardize according to the us EPA more than 350 kms of autonomy.
3. TechRules Ren
Define the first model of TechRules is very complex. At the technical level is not a power, as though moved by electric motors (between 2 and 6 depending on how you want the customer), what is certain is that it has micro turbines fired by diesel fuel to generate that electricity, which is then stored in batteries of only 25 kWh.
From the morphological point of view, it is also something indefinable, because it is a sporty 3-seater has no doors, but that has a roof type cockpit, and his body is more close to a LMP1 that to a street sports car.
Ren has been designed by Giugiaro, and is expected to arrive soon to the streets, because this is not a mere concept, but the first real model of the chinese company. So that is postulated as one of electric’s most powerful market, may have up to 1.300 CV, depending on the option mechanics chosen.
4. Renault ZOE e-Sport Concept
Renault ZOE e-Sport Concept
This conceptual model, as I show in “top 5 concepts” of the living-swiss, but it is that spectacular deserves it. The small ZOE is transmuted into a rabid sports made of carbon, very flared and aggressive, but still does not lose its feature of zero emission vehicle.
Has two electric motors that add up to 460 horses and that allow you to reach 100 km/h from standstill in just 3.2 seconds.
of course, this is only a design exercise, or a move of marketing, but do not let it have a breathtaking sight, which reminds us of the classic way to do the sports: more bass, more width and more lightweight.
5. Toyota i-TRIL
Although at a glance we could think that the i-TRIL is the evolution of the i-ROAD, what is certain is that the japanese brand has not been presented as such, but rather as a sample of the vision of the japanese brand with regard to it will be the urban mobility in the year 2030.
Toyota has never been a brand to skimp on originality in this type of creations, printing your personal seal to all the concepts of this type. In fact, few brands spend efforts already with this type of concepts, it looks futuristic and a little posibilista, as follows by the corporation to nippon.
there is No concrete data of its technical scheme, but this is not its purpose. According To Toyota,
the i-TRIL is a sample of what the future electric vehicles
the segments A and B could be in the very near future.
