Porsche 919 Hybrid

The sports car brand is sending a technology platform, the new 919 Hybrid, to in the top category of the World Endurance which include the 24 Hours of Le New regulations for LMP1 race gave the engineers an unusual of freedom, while focusing on with great future such as hybridisation, engine and a systematic approach to lightweight Instead of pure power, the is now on clever ways to enhance efficiency.

From the combustion to the energy recovery systems, and running gear, aerodynamics and ergonomics, the sum of all individual components an exceptionally effective unit to one goal: a maximum of sporty within tight fuel constraints.

The drive system of the car is based on a four-cylinder petrol that is as compact as it is lightweight, load-bearing functions within the based on its V-construction, which offers thermodynamic advantages. The engine, which reaches a engine speed of around rpm, is a frontrunner in terms of its philosophy with its 2.0 litres of direct injection and monoturbo

It also features two different recovery systems. Fundamentally new is the of thermal energy from gases. An electric generator is here, which is powered by the gas stream. The functionality of the second system stems from a on the front axle utilising phases to convert kinetic into electric energy. It is stored in water-cooled lithium-ion packs until the driver the extra energy.


The new Golf GTE plug-in completes the Volkswagen Golf with a fifth drive (petrol, diesel, natural electric and plug-in hybrid making VW the first carmaker to offer all the current pertinent types in a single model The Golf GTE operates with a consumption (NEDC for hybrid of 1.5 l/100 km (equivalent to 35 g/km as well as an all-electric range of 50 the total driving range of the 150 PS car is 939 kilometres.

The new Golf GTE is driven by two one 110 kW/150 PS turbo direct injection engine (1.4 and one electric motor with 75 PS. These two engines combine to the stated system power of 50 PS. If the electric motor is the sole for propulsive power, the Golf GTE is of speeds of up to 130 km/h. When the power of the TSI is used, the GTE sprints to 100 in 7.6 seconds; the Volkswagen achieves a top of 222 km/h on German motorways and courses. However, the “V/max” is of importance. Of more significance is the pulling power of the Golf GTE to its alliance of a petrol engine and motor that produces a torque of 350 Nm. This torque this first “GTE” from plug-in hybrid from all other competitors in its

Despite its power and torque, the GTE remains one of the world’s most cars. If you are mostly out and about on routes daily, you can drive with zero emissions for if necessary. In the evening, you simply the battery from an ordinary mains outlet in about and a half hours (until it 100 per cent
