Vehicle Type Approvals (OTTS) for the new Moskvich appeared on the Web. Models "Moskvich 3" and "Moskvich 3e" are turned JAC JS4 and E40X, so the initial rumors were once again confirmed. The Moskvich 3 crossover will be offered with two engines to choose from, aspirated or turbocharged. Moskvich 3e will receive a 68-horsepower electric motor and will be able to drive up to 410 kilometers without recharging. The production of cars was planned to be launched by the end of this year.
According to OTTS, JAC JS4 crossovers will be sold under the name Moskvich 3. Moreover, KAMAZ is indicated as a car manufacturer, and the Moscow Automobile Plant Moskvich, formerly Renault Russia, is indicated as an assembly plant.
Two modifications are announced, both are front-wheel drive, with a six-speed “mechanics” or a Punch variator. Engines - "aspirated" 1.6 (109 hp, 150 Nm) and turbo engine 1.5 (150 hp, 210 Nm), running on AI-92 gasoline.
The Moskvich 3 equipment will include power windows, climate control, tire pressure monitoring and a driver's airbag. For a surcharge, cruise control, a rear-view camera, parking sensors, an airbag for a passenger and side curtains will be offered.
JAC E40X electric off-road vehicle will turn into Moskvich 3e. It will be equipped with a DY Power liquid-cooled electric motor (68 hp) and a Sinoev Technologies battery with a capacity of 187 amp-hours (250-450 V). The declared power reserve is 410 kilometers. The list of equipment for the electric Moskvich is the same as for the gasoline twin brother.
Last summer, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin drew up a roadmap for the Moskvich plant for the coming years. The first stage is the organization of SKD assembly of cars from the so-called friendly countries. The second is a deeper localization of the production of the same machines. And only then the company will start assembling its own electric vehicles. KAMAZ will be the main technological partner of the project.
Croatian hypercar Rimac Nevera has become the fastest mass-produced electric car in the world. On the Automotive Testing Papenburg track in Germany, he was able to accelerate to 412 kilometers per hour. The record was recorded using the Racelogic V-Box measuring complex, and two years ago, just such a speed was shown by the simulation. The car was shod in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R road tires, plus the Top Speed mode was activated on it.
The Rimac Nevera hypercar has set a new world speed for marketable electric vehicles. For this, he had to be sent to the oval of the German company Automotive Testing Papenburg, where Rimak test pilot Miro Zrnchevich was able to accelerate to 412 kilometers per hour. The testers had the car itself, shod in road-homologated Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R tires, and two four-kilometre straights.
An impressive result is obtained in the Top Speed mode, which allows you to find the optimal balance between low resistance and stability. Zrnchevich already accelerated to 250 kilometers per hour at the exit of the curve, so it was not so difficult to catapult Nevera to a maximum of four hundred.
The record was recorded using the Racelogic V-Box measuring complex, but something else is interesting: back in 2018, this was exactly the speed that the simulation predicted.
It took a collective 1.6 million development hours to test the findings empirically. However, even earlier, Nevera set a record for acceleration to 60 miles per hour (1.85 s) and for passing the quarter (8.582 s).
But the absolute speed record for electric cars so far belongs to the Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3. The streamlined “cigar”, whose air resistance coefficient is only 0.13, accelerated to 549.43 kilometers per hour in Bonneville.
Each axle of the Buckeye Bullet 3 had two electric motors driving its wheel through a two-stage Hewland gearbox. Together with a traction battery with a capacity of more than two megawatts, they developed a total of 3000 forces.
Rimac Nevera also uses four electric motors, although their combined output is lower - 1914 horsepower and 2360 Nm of torque. The battery pack with a capacity of 120 kilowatt-hours is integrated into the structure of the carbon fiber monocoque.
According to the Nevera passport, it accelerates from standstill to a hundred in 1.97 seconds, to 300 kilometers per hour in 9.3 seconds.
Like a nightmare, but reality.
Tesla car hit two people to death in China.
The incident took place in Chaozhou, Guangdong province in South China. The accident occurred due to a malfunction in the car's software: the car accelerated to maximum speed and became uncontrollable. The driver tried several times to stop the car by pressing the brakes, but it did not help. Tesla has promised to investigate the incident.
