Renault, the future between twin engine two-stroke and Value-up

Renault Twin engine
There is still much to develop on internal combustion engines , and it is not true that the immediate future must inevitably pass from complicated, unnecessary and expensive electric cars. An example, of how you can rewrite the engine technology using classical concepts, comes from laboratory researches by Renault on a new two-stroke turbo diesel engine. That is “What is the news? We have already...

Audi and the turbo electric TDi-e: Manifesto of technology

Turbo elettrico
You know what? There are those who actually uses competitions to introduce new technologies on series products. It’s not a surprise that those are Germans, that is Audi. In Ingolstadt there is a direct line through which you can not only transmit contents between motorsport and the sedan car which you sell in dealers, there is more: they are able to communicate this innovation. The last step is called...

Mclaren says goodbye to wipers?

Fantozzi
From the Fantozzi’s Bianchina car to the world rally, the wiper blades are one of the few components common to every car. Thinking to do without them? Madness! The more daring are the rally drivers, capable of striving with lucky systems if necessary: two laces and little else to operate them manually when the electronics abandon them. Perhaps the future holds a more refined technology to be able...

Hybrid-Air PSA, the other face of the hybrid car

hybrid-air-sezione
It won’t be the compressed air car but it is the closer step to the utopia that it’s possible today. We used to think about hybrid as the union between heat engine and the electrical one but in the following years “not so far according to the road map written by PSA” we could extend the concept, replacing the electrical component with the air. Avoiding any mistakes, we talk...

Electric Cars, the BMW i3 “case”: when the materials count

BMW i3
Will be the definitive turning point for the electric cars? Hard to believe. What the BMW i3 brings with vehemence to the forefront of the market is, however, a concept of frame optimization result of specific needs and constraints that the electrical architecture imposes. Some considerations can not pass in the background, especially when you put on the scales important elements. It is the first product...

In search of the lost platform (as long as cross-segment)

piattaforma
Watchword: share. It matters little that if we are talking about social networks or platforms. The first is the reality of the moment, the other a necessity for the cars manufacturer, searching for the magical tool that allows to churn out new models in bursts, while maintaining a unique structure, from the city car to the SUV. If the concept of shared platform applies to similar segments, for which...

There is newness and newness: but what if we were talking about technology and contents?

tecnica e contenuti
«That’s nice, a new model of car!» Given that the time is far distant from those in which a new four-wheels product aroused emotions, today one wonders what the industry intends for “new product”. The innovation has evolved over the years through really useful devices, from ABS to the Common-Rail, from ESP to robotized gearboxes. In short, real progress in the field of technology that have...
