ITV mobile: What They Are and How They Work

by Comments Off on ITV mobile: What They Are and How They Work
For some, an MOT is a headache for the type of vehicles using therefore ITV mobile stations are presented as a solution. We tell you all the details.ITV mobile: What They Are and How They Work

For most people, pass the ITV is almost routine, a revision to turn to every X years to ensure that our car is in good condition and is unsafe to use. But ITV for whom there is a real headache. ¿You knew the existence of mobile ITV? We give you all the details of a service that makes life easier for more people than we think.

It is very easy to ITV when we live in a city and we have dozens of them a few kilometers. Even living in a small town, we can use the visit to a larger population to pass the ITV and meet other obligations, such as the purchase or own paperwork bureaucracy.

Nevertheless, there to whom this shift represents a cost them time and money very hard to take or outright impossible to carry out. For example, around 50 or 60 kilometers back and many others back with a agricultural vehicle on secondary roads can make a really crazy, because, with few exceptions, can not exceed 40 km / h when the circular. The same case is found among mopeds two and three below 50 cubic centimeters or those wheels light quadricycles (Four wheels, the so-called "car without license") which like all previous cases have limited their speed to 40 km / h and can not travel on highways or expressways.


What does a mobile ITV?

For these situations, this system was invented. Companies engaged in this feature They are moving units for rural or home upon request with the sole purpose of facilitating technical review of these vehicles to their owners. In this way, they are often carried out routes by different municipalities for those working in the field or have a light quadricycle to fulfill their obligations without wasting time and money on a shift that may be endless and also not risk an accident, as its low traveling speed can mean a complication for drivers of utility use.

After doing a quick Internet search, we found that most of the companies offering this service have increased deployment in northern Spain, where roads are tortuous, the weather is usually adverse and populations are more scattered than in the rest of the country, with the highest concentration of houses, towns with more inhabitants and more delimitas, which facilitates the opening of stations ITV fixed .

What vehicles can use mobile ITV?

So far we've talked about mopeds, light quadricycles and agricultural vehicles as the main users of these vehicles, but actually, anyone can make use of this service, have the car you have.

The aforementioned owners agricultural vehicles, mopeds and light quadricycles are those who most use this service because a displacement of tens of kilometers to fixed ITV can endanger safety and a waste of time that is not compensated by money because they all have prohibited their circulation on motorways and are required to run on the hard shoulder and not exceed 40 km / h speed limit on secondary roads.

Nevertheless, there are other users who will take a good performance this type of service. In rural areas it is common to see owners motorcycles, cars and vans up to 3,500 kg take advantage of the visit of these stations to their home areas to avoid a few kilometers to the ITV station elsewhere. Nevertheless, not all companies with mobile ITV have sufficient structure to pass the technical inspection of cars and motorcycles, so those that offer this service are less widespread.


How can I pass the review in a mobile ITV?

Carry out technical inspection of our vehicle into a mobile ITV It is as simple as in the case of a fixed ITV. We just have to do an Internet search and specifying our region without difficulty find the annual calendar with the people who visit each company. Even, some autonomous communities have an official collection of all regions will be visited on their official websites.

After checking on the mobile ITV will be available in the area that suits us, we just have to make an appointment, as we would in the case of wanting to do it in a fixed ITV. Further, if the flow is higher than expected, ITV station will be available for more than one day.

ITV phones, also used by the DGT

Not only the average citizen has been able to see the advantages of mobile ITV. Since October last year, DGT has five mobile units with which to check the status of vehicles with nine or more seats (including the driver), buses, vans and trucks.

12,000 reviews provided annually, the aim is to reduce the accident risk between such vehicles, since the European Union estimates that 6 percent of collisions where these cars have been protagonists could have been avoided through correct maintenance. Further, from the point DGT that "in 2015, 9 percent of vans, 4 percent of trucks over 3,500 kg and 1 percent of the buses involved in accidents with victims on interurban roads had the ITV expired at the time of the accident ".

Among the instruments that can be found in these mobile ITV, the DGT uses special tools meters lights, play detector in the steering and suspension or gas analyzers, among others. Penalties for not drive the vehicle in good condition van from 200 euros to the immobilisation of the vehicle and transfer to a workshop.

Ensuring an electric car, how much it costs compared to conventional?

by Comments Off on Ensuring an electric car, how much it costs compared to conventional?
The arrival of the electric car in Spain is occurring more slowly than in the rest of Europe form. Maybe the final price and to ensure these vehicles is the reason.Ensuring an electric car, how much it costs compared to conventional?

Although studies show that 69.9 percent of Spaniards are willing to pay more for a car if it is environmentally friendly, the fact that the sale of electric cars and of hybrid type plug only represents just over 1 percent of all sales of the automotive industry.

This is reflected in the 2,000 electric vehicles (also add plug-in hybrids) sold in 2015 in Spain that although 2016 has grown to 4,746 units, remains below the rest of Europe, with Germany, France, the Netherlands and Norway, among others, the head of sales of electric cars.

This Unlike sales It has a clear motive in the price of cars in this category (much higher than equivalent versions with combustion engines), who barely have the same aid every year when incentivize the purchase, what we know as the Movea plan. This in our country, compared to countries like Norway, where cars 'zero emissions' are exempt from VAT or Denmark, where you can sell excess electricity from your car during those hours in which kw is paid to its highest price .

To this must be added the cost of ensure electric vehicles which, according to, it can grow up to 28 percent compared to a petrol model. Throughout the life of the car, the difference is about 1,750 euros more. Yes, from the comparator encourage insurance comparison tools use these services because we can make this difference down to 'only' 10 percent (instead of 28 percent).

This extra cost can be understood as the Car Insurance They must address specific problems of this type of car, as the related battery, the still few charging points and the possibility of running out and having to autonomy be towed, something that can occur in a more normal way when they start using for the first time this type of car, with a range too limited to what we are used on cars with petrol or diesel powered engines.

We've talked a lot the last few months of the new SUV from Skoda. The new Kodiaq, already on the market, has caused a sensation and the Czech brand and finalizing the moment for China, launch new spectacular Kodiaq Coupé. There is no doubt that this type of vehicle will take much of the role of the new range of Skoda. Yes, size, positioning and price, the standard bearer should be the Yeti compact. O Karoq... as we filter from Germany.

And is that the substitute already preparing for Skoda Yeti, and lately I have spoken, seems to be definitively confirmed that It will be called Karoq.

This hypothetical second generation of the Yeti should also gain breadth and trunk. It will offer the latest practical solutions "Simply Clever" presented by Skoda and cargo volume and possibly exceed the 500 liter capacity.

As to engines, the new Skoda Karoq present an offer as complete. In gasoline, new block 3 cylinder 1.0 TSI will start the range version 115 hp, while above should not miss the versions 1.4 TSI in two power levels: 125 and 150 hp, the latter with ACT cylinder shutdown system. In Diesel 1.6 TDI It should be the entry step with 115 hp, Meanwhile he 2.0 TDI 150 hp It would be above. No shortage of manual and automatic options DSG dual clutch transmission, nor majoritarian 4x2 versions but also possibility of having 4x4 variants.
