Wankeladvokat

Munchen, 29. October 2015 – since 2012 after the production stop for the mazda rx-8, it had looked for a long time as if the end of the wankeltechnik was sealed. Over the decades, automakers had always attempted to remove consumption and emissions of the circle engine on a level comparable to the lifting piston engine. Most recently, audi has housed a small wankel engine as a range extender (rich extender) in the tail of a hybrid audi a1. A pioneer of the first hour was mazda – and it has remained until today. On the tokyo motor show, mazda now promised to revive the circle engine.

After the first series use of a wankel in a car, the nsu wankel-spider of 1964, mazda brought his 110s cosmo sport in 1967 as the first car with two-slice engine on the market. A spectacular sports car, in whose tradition is now probably the study of rx concept. Mazda-ceo masamichi kogai said on their presentation on the tokyo motor show: "the study sports concept by re is equipped with a wankel engine system called skyactiv r. When it goes in series, i can not say. Only as much: the wankel comes back soon."

"Much in terms of fuel consumption made"

Swivel motors are elastic, speedy, spreading and quite durable. However, the breakthrough has been denied them for decades because they have significant disadvantages in particular in the consumption of ol and fuel towards usual cylinder engines. "We have made a lot in terms of fuel consumption", underlines masamichi kogai, "because otherwise he was not accepted by our customers."

Rustable track warning system

Rustable track warning system

Dreieich / lutjensee, 15. May 2007 – mudeness at long trips is a cause for many inflates on german highways. But not only lack of sleep, also distraction by mobile phones, navigation gates and mp3 players play a role. The decrease driver assistance system albrecht fas 100 from alan electronics makes the driver drawn attention to the driver with a warning sound on the overriding side or medium strips. The loudly of the warning tone can be set in four stages. So that the sound does not exclude every lane change, the device can be coupled to the turn signal sensor. A similar system is offered in new vehicles from citroen under the name afil track assistant. This system is based on an infrared camera and costs 610 euros in the model c4. Here the warning takes over a vibration in the driver’s seat.

Blackbox for clarifying the accident

In addition, the fas 100 offers a black box function, as it is known from aircraft: a camera automatically records the last twelve seconds before and six seconds after an accident. In addition, the device determines speeds and position data via gps. The data thus obtained can also provide evidence in legal ambiguities, the manufacturer. Another additional function ensures that a signal is drawn when the distance to the front vehicle increases. This should prevent the driver from losing the connection or removing the traffic. This depends mainly during urgent city traffic, in the traffic jam on the highway and at waits at grenzubergangen or driving jets. The reverse function – a warning at too little distance – is planned for the next version of the gerat.

Only two parts

The fas 100 consists of two parts: the camera is attached to the windshield, attached to the control panel using a magnet on the dashboard. Whether the camera is based on citroen on infrared technology, was not to be found until the editorial deadline for this article. The price for the fas 100 is 699 euros.

Charter electric car: root cause search

Charter electric car: root cause search

No million. "So, as it looks at the moment, we will not achieve this goal," says chancellor angela merkel, and meant the inventory number of electric cars in 2020. So what? We do not live in a planned economy. Nevertheless, according to the causes – product range, price, infrastructure – and according to guilty. Quickly is shown on the car dealer and the sellers: there, there are no interest in bringing something other than gasoline and diesel to the customer, because that works. What’s on this thesis, it is the truth or a mar? Because useful scientific investigations are missing, the author decreases at this point in the ego-form. I would like to report samples and impressions, of our own experiences and crafts.

Well-known reproach

Novely, the action is not, the handlers were either active the sale of battery electric cars and plug-in hybrids to prevent or at least at least by omitting. A rough car newspaper sent me in 2013 to opel handlers to berlin, braunschweig and hamburg. At all three locations, the conditions for ampera, first generation, optimal: centrally located in the showroom was the ampera, i was competent and unsolicited advised, and no seller doubt a doubt that this car is really very, very good goods. With this result of the mystery shopping i came back to the editors. For the claim that ampera did not get in motion because he was not touted too little, there was no document.

And today? From background phones and various meetings with car dealers, there is a differentiated picture. Of course, it is helpful if there is a personal enthusiasm for the e-mobitat. But the business conditions have to be votes. By jurgen sangl, both are the case. It is known in the scene of the battery fans as a positive example. Sangl sells theoretically hyundais from the i10 to tucson. Practically, about 60 percent of its new cars are reluctant to the ioniq electric. Two weeks ago he has the 200. Brought to the strain this year. Sangl does not take a leaf in front of his mouth, talked about "stone age" when he says the internal combustion engine, and colleagues who did not recognize the signs of time.

Bosch expands another 1000 jobs

Bosch expands another 1000 jobs

Bosch wants to reduce another 1000 jobs in baden-wurttemberg. The business area automotive steering (steering systems) in schwabisch gmund is affected. "We have to act now to make our competition and thus future-proof again with a profound restructuring," said the chairman of bosch’s area board, christian sobottka, on thursday evening (24. October 2019) with.

Sinking demand

Currently there are 5000 employees at the bosch site in schwabisch gmund. Only last tuesday (22. October) had already announced bosch that, given the falling demand for diesel and gasoline engines in the coming two years, good 1600 workplaces are reduced. Affected jobs in the drive division at the sites in stuttgart-feuerbach and schwieberdingen are. A location agreement from 2017 had already provided in schwabisch gmund already a reduction of hundreds of workplaces until the end of 2022. This degradation should now be extended by another 1000 jobs.

"That’s a challenge for us," said a spokesman for the city. Oberburgermeister richard arnold (cdu) talked to the manager and the works council. He puts on the fact that the location is not fundamentally questioned, but would be re-aligned. "We are going to schwabisch gmund as a tail. Competition and pensionability are further our core targets, "emphasized sobottka. Bosch currently staffed around 410.000 people, of which 140.000 in germany. According to may 2019, the company is about 50.000 workplaces alone from the diesel engine.

Stronger

Koln, 14. May 2016 – even if he is already an old acquaintance, the engine of the triumph tiger explorer is still impressing again. The 1215 cubic centimeter coarse three-cylinder unfolds powerful prere already from leaving gas and pleased with a linear performance curve. The bully drive has introduced the coarse tiger from england many fans. But for 2016, triumph primarily handed his flagship, because the euro4 standard also relates to coincidence, at least as long as it does not come to brexit.

Availably hardly any differences to the transaction. The new tiger explorer is most likely to recognize the chiller’s cheater side coves, they are pulled a bit further forward and rearing a silver hole hole. Also the headlight panel and the rims show a slightly changed design, the bench is newly shaped and the suitcase mounts are smaller. The actual revolution took place quasi inside. The engine received a subtle power force, the chassis now works semi-active and the list of electronics features showed up clearly.

Top model as a top seller

The best-selling explorer in germany is not the cheap basic model xr (14.300 euros), but the top model xrt (17.500 euros), in between still ranks the xrx (15.900 euro) – same applies to the xc series for those with wire dock beads instead of casting rims. Apparently, many customers in the upscale price segment want to have only the best and are ready to make appropriate surcharges. That’s why we grabbed an explorer xrt, which usually offers series almost everything, whatever else needs to be requested in the accessory program, and fell the tiger explorer on the friction to the friction. So much in advance: the tiger is more of a cuddly cat, which does everything, to make the ride as pleasant as possible.

Ace warns against scaremongering about oil price development

The autoclub europa (ace) warns against scaremongering about the oil price development. Ace spokesman rainer hillgartner said in stuttgart on friday: "anyone who, like the german institute for economic research (diw), fantasizes about scarce oil reserves and predicts a fuel price of 4 euros is already preparing the ground for unjustified new price rounds for the oil companies". This is irresponsible and does a disservice to consumers.

There can be no question of exhausted sources in view of oil reserves that are already confirmed as safe and have a range of more than 46 years. The claim by the organization of petroleum exporting countries (opec) that it may no longer be able to meet global demand for crude oil as early as 2024 is also misleading. This "scaremongering" is only intended to conceal the fact that today only four out of ten countries with the world’s highest rate of claims belong to this cartel.

According to hillgartner, however, all this does not prevent him from calling more strongly for a policy that leads away from oil. In this area, the automotive industry in particular is challenged more than ever before. If the change does not succeed, the mobile society will fall further and further into economically and politically undesirable dependencies. As a result, driving became a privilege for the few.

At that time, the world saw what the relationship of europe is concerned with the us and the perspective on intelligence and monitoring, in fact a little different (echelon committee adopted recommendations).

After the striking of the 11.9. Have many states if they did not have appropriate regulations anyway, anti-terroral packages whose component is also the expansion of surveillance powers through the intelligence services. Although the intelligence services have failed with regard to the pravention of terrorism, they have often been considered as a crucial weapon against terrorism that they have to expand. In the same train, the rights of the burgers were braced, as security is apparently only by waiving privacy and freedoms to buy.

Scrapping bonus: data (protection) glitches with online reservations

The new online reservation procedure that started this monday at eight o’clock "ump new" for the scrapping bonus for old cars, officially christened the environment, is now developing into a data protection disaster for the executing bodies after an it disaster. Our site has an increasing number of evidence that the competent authority, the federal office for economics and export control (bafa), did not send reply e-mails with personal and vehicle-related data to the original applicant, but to other people, who also want to apply for scrapping bonuses.

In detail, this means for those affected: one applicant "mr. Meier" after successfully completing the procedure made difficult by the overloaded website of the authorities, he receives an email from bafa with a pdf attached. However, this document does not contain the confirmation for your own reservation, but data from another applicant. Now experience involuntarily "mr. Meier", that one "mrs. Muller" also wants to collect a scrapping premium in another corner of the republic. It is called their residential and e-mail address, type information including a vehicle number of the old car as well as vehicle type and pollutant class of the ordered new vehicle.

It is unclear how many confirmations have been sent to an incorrect addressee so far. Based on the editing numbers assigned, it is to be amed that in the course of today’s monday at least a few thousand persons has been able to handle their online reservation, even if they had to spend several hours due to the onslaught on the website for several hours. So far, there is no indication that reservations were only sent wrong in pairs (meier / muller muller / meier). Some readers of our site report that the same process number has apparently been assigned at least two different applicants.
