From the Detroit Motor Show in January, until the Hall of Los Angeles in November, through the European Saloons Geneva and Paris, and many other global gatherings, have been countless innovations that left us this 2016. cars "meat and bone"Ready to enroll and leading them out, but also many concepts prefiguring us design, the technologies and the engines of the future. Of these, these 10 here we remind you, we are that we have liked.
Next BMW Vision 100
To celebrate its hundred anniversary, BMW showed us the Next Vision 100, a futuristic model we showed the evolution of cars would experience in the following 100 years. The German firm says that this concept car already has implemented systems and connectivity devices and human-machine interaction that increasingly will become more popular over the next three decades in the automotive industry. He BMW Vision Concept Next 100 It is a prototype car from driving autonomous a la carte, which proposes to "driver" and his companions two modes of operation: "Ease" Y "Boost". The way "Ease" selected vehicle interior structure changes and reconfigures the aim of providing cabin as comfortable and comfortable as possible. On the other hand, the way "Boost" It is the one oriented driving; the steering wheel returns to its natural state to be handled by the driver, while the seats are arranged in the conventional position and Head Up Display only projects concerning travel information (in addition to the essential technical data of the car).
return to Living room from Detroit 2016, in the distant January. There Buick He introduced a coupe that the boldest dared mention the rumor mill return Opel Calibra. Laterally, the Buick Avista noted for their muscular wheel arches, its short overhang and immense aluminum rim 5 spoke 20 inches. As big coupe in Buick Avista no room for four passengers, which they have strictly individual seats. The American brand He also talked about the intentions of Buick Avista the mechanical configuration chosen: A biturbo V6 gasoline engine 3.0-liter, 400 horsepower, managed by an automatic gearbox of eight speeds. Not without the environmental compromise, the engine has Avista Stop-Start and a system of cylinder deactivation.
We met at the Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach. The Cadillac Concept Scale is a huge sedan Luxury 5.3 meters with strokes coupé (American brand defined as hatchbacks) to be positioned, to be output, above Cadillac CT6, with which it shares platform. So immense is the Cadillac Scale outside, and inside, although its luxury and comfortable cabin is dedicated to single 4 passengers, all on separate seats. The engine used is a 4.2 V8 twin, automatic transmission and rear drive.
The DS Concept E-Tense was the proposal Division luxury French He showed in Paris Motor Show: a electric car with coupe body, futuristic spirit and sporting aspirations. Measures 4.7 meters long, 2.1 wide and 1.3 meters high. It is painted in an exclusive metallic green and the front, very aggressive, including a huge grill made with 3D printing mechanisms. Also adopts four headlights type LED simulating the shape of a diamond. E-Tense DS Concept has an electric motor that develops 402 hp and 53.7 Nm of torque. Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h. All the mechanical force is sent to the rear wheels. Announced autonomy is 310 km.
Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6
Another of the brightest stars displayed the Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach 2016 (California). The Mercedes-Maybach 6 Vision is pure show from any point of view, width and along its 5.7 meters body. He Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 It is a vehicle hundred percent power provided with Four engines !, each aimed at each of its wheels. A total capacity of 748 hp. The battery has a capacity of almost 80 kWh and guarantees, according to Mercedes, one autonomy from 500 km in the cycle NEDC European approval. On the other hand, accelerates 0 to 100 km / h in less than four seconds and a maximum speed of 250 km / h (Electronically limited).
Unveiled in Living room from Geneva, the Opel GT Concept is a concept that would mark the future trend, Opel. With front engined and the motrice rear wheelss, resumes GT name, a mythical model of the brand appeared in 1968 and, in 2007, Opel again he used for another of his two-seater sports cars. He Opel GT Concept riding a petrol engine with three cylinders, turbo and 1 liter displacement reaches 145 hp and it has a maximum torque of 205 Nm. The motor drives the rear wheels through a sequential gearbox six-speed operated from cams located behind the wheel. He Opel GT Concept, by brand, accelerates 0 to 100 km / h in less than 8 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 215 km / h. The weight announced for the car is less than 1,000 kilos.
Pininfarina H2 Speed
The new Pininfarina H2 Speed Concept promises a great effectiveness aerodynamics and total efficiency, issuing its escape only water vapor. GreenGT He has been responsible for the development of its innovative system propulsion, together employing two electric motors They are working together with fuel cell, where he hydrogen It transforms in electric power which drives the propellers. This Franco-Swiss company has been designing, developing and producing new sustainable propulsion systems since 2008. According to reports both Pininfarina as GreenGT, advanced H2 propulsion system Speed Concept It is the most powerful in the world employing fuel cell. With up to 503 hp, promises acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 300 km / h. also it highlights, front electric supercars, for its fast fill hydrogen tank: just 3 minutes.
He stressed at home, in the past Paris Motor Show. Said in the French event that laid the foundations Trezor Renault design language that would cars Renault of the future, but the goal was to develop a prototype to be a laboratory of ideas. He said Lauren van den Acker, Design Director of Renault and head of this new prototype, which evokes the name Trezor "a precious object that leaves many details to discover", while "Z" It refers to the technology hundred percent electric ZE Renault. Hence the engine Power 350 hp. The Renault Trezor Concept is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds. Hundred percent propulsion power takes a lot of developed and proven advances in competition cars electrical of the Formula E.
TechRules TREV Concepts
He superderpotivo 1,044 CV Techrules in its variants at96 and GT96 it will be a drivable reality. In its initial release in China -that in Beijing where the company that names the model has its base-, scheduled for 2018 or 2019, will be followed by another worldwide at a later time even without definir.En Currently, the team's work focuses on engineering the completion of the development process and manufacturing Final versions Technology TREV (Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle). In parallel, it will continue working in engineering and design variants at96, in which uses a turbine similar to a airplane; Y GT96, in which the fuel is replaced aviation by gas for food. In these cases, Techrules partners in the UK and Italy.
We go to CES in Las Vegas in early 2016. There we saw the "Microbus for the XXI century"Thus defined by itself Volkswagen its new electric vehicle concept long distance. The VW Budd-e has all the technologies planned to reach Future Cars. And to begin with, most importantly, it develops from the new modular platform Vehicle Brand and electrical plug (MEB). He Volkswagen Budd-e Concept is, therefore, a electric van which it has a great battery 101 kWh located along the floor of the vehicle. It has an electric motor on each axle, so that although engineers still do not talk about power, do confirm that have all-wheel drive and a 100% electric autonomy up to 600 km. In all, you will be able to reach 150 km / h speed and promises to recharge up to 80 percent of its batteries in just under half an hour even.
