As you know, an auto show is being held in Paris, which the domestic media predicted to be as sad as the Moscow Autosalon 2018. I was going to go to Paris, but I remembered that I should definitely watch Igromir 2018, about which a separate material will be released. And so, sitting in the Moscow Crocus Expo, I was able to get acquainted with all the new cars. Thank you for this modern technology and cosplay girls who know a little magic:
Electroconcept from Renault
Photos of this sliding self-governing miracle have spread all over the world. And the reason for this, perhaps, is that even against the background of concepts, the model from Renault looks very conceptual. I can't even imagine this unit on the street. Here is Moscow rain, wind, dusk on the street, puddles, and Renault EZ-Ultimo drives up to the Pyaterochka store and parks, driving into a place for the disabled. Unimaginable.
Little is known about the auto company Peugeot. Firstly, according to information from the singer Yolki, these are small cars that girls drive. Secondly, according to the data received from S. Shnurov, the drivers Peugeot do not chew, whatever that means. Accordingly, you understand that the presented muscular concept, inspired by the coupe Peugeot 504, had the effect of an exploding bomb – everyone shuddered and looked. The concept is self-contained, fully electric and always connected to the Internet.
Among other things, since the concept is French, the eminent Parisian perfumer Ex Nihilo came up with two signature fragrances for the car. Unfortunately, I did not find what exactly this muscle car will smell like. But there is little information on the technical characteristics. From zero to 100 in about 4 seconds, charging up to 80% in 25 minutes and a power reserve of 600 kilometers. I really need such a car to travel from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
Porsche 911 Speedster
This car was shown as a concept, but it has already been confirmed for production. On the one hand, this is good, on the other hand, I have no money for it. Production is slated to start in the first quarter of next year, so I think this car will be the hottest summer accessory for summer 2019. Good news: a 500 horsepower engine that can rotate at 9,000 rpm, a manual transmission and 21 wheels inch. They did not say anything about the price and other characteristics, and this is not necessary. In my opinion the Porsche 911 Speedster is simply the most beautiful car in the show.
Mercedes EQ Silver Arrow
Mercedes made a beautiful concept. In the spirit of the times, it is also completely electric. Power is approximately 750 horsepower. We will hardly see it on the roads, but you can admire it.
In general, the topic of electric transport is one of the central themes at the exhibition. In Volkswagen, trying to leave diesel gate in the past, they show that it is easy to rethink even a gray-haired classic. The Beetle's power reserve is 250 kilometers, the speed is also 250. It is curious that a 4-speed manual transmission was left in the car.
Mercedes Benz EQC
In 2016, in Mercedes they created the EQ brand, or UY, if you forget to switch the layout. This brand was supposed to be as electrically environmentally friendly as possible. Two years later, the company showed what would go into series, and presented a model with the name of the three letters EQC. This naming Mercedes slightly disappointed me, I was expecting another letter, and not behind, but in front. I believe that in Russia the name would have gone and quickly become viral.
This car has a power reserve of 320 kilometers, acceleration to hundreds of 4.9 seconds, power of 402 horsepower. Journalists at the exhibition noted that the car has as many as 3 USB Type-C connectors.
The model will appear on the market in mid-2019. And this is Tesla's first true competitor. Very curious to see how buyers will receive it.
While others flaunt their bravery, power and ability to insert an electric motor even into a rarity, KIA makes comfortable and good cars for urban dwellers, so that they go about their business and feel good.
Everyone has already heard about e-NIRO, but at the Paris Motor Show, KIA finally spoke about the numbers. In highway mode, the car will travel 486 kilometers, and in the city – as much as 600 kilometers, and this is a whole week of trips without recharging. And the coolest thing is that the model will go on sale at the end of 2018, and the warranty for it will be 100 thousand kilometers or 7 years. Acceleration to 100 kilometers is not the most impressive, 7.2 seconds. But fans of the Fast and the Furious movie may recall that in the story Vin Diesel demanded that Paul Walker drive him a car that makes a hundred in less than 10 seconds. Can you imagine what new colors the film would have played if Walker had driven Kia e-Niro? By the way, actor Robert De Niro became the car's ambassador.
We are waiting for official prices.
As you can see, the text turned out to be small, since I told only about those models that turned out to be unusual and different from traditional announcements. Although, perhaps, someone with great interest would read about the new ones BMW, since it is nevertheless closer and more understandable. In the comments, write and post pictures of which cars you like.
