There will be more 1 litre cars, thanks to the hybrid drive. Here one has combined in a forward-looking body a three-cylinder with a one-liter displacement and 57 kW (78 HP) with an electric motor that delivers 40 kW (54 HP). 95 Nm come from the former and from the latter 200 Nm. Unclear, whether the addition of both should be available to the transmission or the system power is limited.

The battery is calculated very scarce with 6.7 kWh. So its capacity is just enough to come through the first 100 kilometres with one liter petrol for the internal combustion engine. For the second 100 kilometres the car then becomes to a 2.5 liter car. This can be calculated easily, because the battery is sufficient for 60 kilometres at correspondingly gentle driving. So the combustion creates 40 kilometres with one litre.

At the scarce calculated battery will already clear the concerns of the developers, namely to charge the car as low cost as possible. Aluminum and magnesium should be used instead of titanium, the latter e.g. have been used exclusively for the roof. The transmission has only three gear stages, because the lower speeds are covered by the electric motor. This should be possible up to 120 km/h.

Even if you do not like to believe always all the manufacturers informations about weight loss, nevertheless, one has to state significant weight savings here. Remarkable for a car of the compact class, the drag coefficient of 0.235. However, this requires an indeed highly recommended, but also quite expensive air suspension that lowers the car by 25 mm at 70 km/h.

Finally, a word about the brakes. A lighter car needs less of it. Saves one thereby weight also, this affects commonly not only the fuel consumption, but also the performance of the chassis. Unfortunately, the wide tyres are passť the same time. Only 145 mm wide may in turn extend something the braking distance. 09/14               Top of page               Index
