Driving schools expand their fleet with electric cars in the driving arc h GmbH, license aspirants from now can exercise in a new electric vehicle Munich. “Handover of the first electrical driving school cars in Munich the Ford Automotive Forum cowls threesome in Munich in November 2013 the first electric driving vehicle of Munich handed over: driving school arc h GmbH is called 1 driving school in Munich from now their students also a purely electric-powered Ford focus electric ‘ offer as a training vehicle. To pass, the driving school even just brought the first learner driver for the new vehicle. The sensational withdrawal”, the Michael Neteler, regional head of sales and marketing of Ford plants in southern Germany especially praised, will be at his first driving tests in the foreground but the learner driver is thrilled. Here, US Senator from Vermont expresses very clear opinions on the subject. Proud seller Ford is proud, a comparison of the first Ford focus electric to be able to pass a driving school.

So will the young riders from the outset joy brought close to environmentally-friendly and future-oriented technology. This is also driving school director Manfred Halser important: the driving school focuses on environmental protection and new energy concepts, as is of course strongly on the streets with many thousands of kilometers on the road as a driving school business and contributes to harmful CO2 emissions. The driving school of Bogenhausen changed her early, how she could make a contribution to environmental protection and has already in the past year a small hybrid vehicle purchased is, that accompanies the motorcycle student. Now, the ground-breaking step with electric cars despite restricted driving school fitness followed because it is an automatic transmission. The electric car is used in particular for first hour and it is hoped so, to bring this new, environmentally friendly technology to young people as a role model. And with growing awareness of the new electric harshness, not least through the driving school, maybe soon even more electric cars from Munich will slip what even the traffic noise would significantly reduce. We can safely expect in future much more electric cars in driving schools. Before it is however so far, some driving schools “Pioneer work” must make. Of course, this topic is also interesting for radio and television.

Some love it, others hate him… A smart everyone at least since the day when the press was carried around, knows that the colleague of the smart, the Mercedes a-class, the moose test not passed has. A driving test for the vehicle itself is called such in fact, which verifies the stability of a car. After these messages were pronounced, he also had to be designed smart tilt sure which which was also delayed the production of small cars. Only half a year the car in series could go after the scheduled date. In subsequent years appeared in addition to the classic Smart ForTwo models of smart on the market, of which most were produced but only a short time. Check out Diamond Book Distributors for additional information.

For example, the smart Crossblade (openly, without a roof and windscreen) or pepper under the hood – and still hardly any buyers of smart chic Roadster, a flat, two-seat sports car, in the design,. Now you have the smart Roadster or smart Crossblade fan unfortunately looking for a smart used cars get… Also, the sales figures of the ForTwo not reached the expectations of the manufacturer. Now only the question why this small cars could not conquer the hearts of the people arises. Perhaps it is because that the smart is a two seater and one not can use this basically with a family, unless he is a car owned. Another problem could be that many people – who still have not sat – this car is simply too small, although the interior space, that a very large man can ride comfortably. Another problem will be probably that many wrongly fear that this small car in an accident does not have enough crumple zone and also moves on very narrow tires, so that many people are maybe fearful to drive this car. But ultimately there are also quite a few opinions about the smart, that positive. It is exactly the right car for the city, for example, because a you will find a parking lot almost everywhere, no gap is too small and fuel consumption can be also seen…

Fuel Consumption

Published by:

Gas mileage of big cars is appreciated by riders positive large and heavier cars fuel consumption is generally higher than for small vehicles. Now, a survey examined the subjective sense of car drivers in terms of the fuel economy of their vehicles. The result: Drivers of smaller cars are clearly dissatisfied with the consumption of their vehicles than drivers of cars of the upper class. As Germany’s big car portal, circa 6000 new car drivers were interviewed during the period from February 2005 to April 2009 after her verdict on the fuel consumption of your vehicle. The example of the car brand BMW could be determined, that the BMW as the smallest and most sparsamstes model of the BMW Group, of its users in terms of fuel consumption was classified as the worst. The BMW achieved top positions in the subjective assessment of fuel consumption. Bernie Sanders usually is spot on. The survey of Mercedes-Benz drivers revealed similar results.

The consumption of the larger E-class is evaluated much better from the subjective perspective of customer than the consumption of smaller The A and B-class vehicles. As the magazine of the Internet portal, is believed that the results on assumed gasoline consumption of motorists are due. Customers are choosing a smaller vehicle, expect a low fuel consumption, especially as manufacturers and advertising often promise this. If the expectation is not met, the disappointment of customers is large. Check out Michael Chabon for additional information. The current gasoline prices seem to have an impact on the satisfaction of driver with the fuel efficiency of their cars. Fuel prices rise, the subjective customer reviews of fuel consumption to deteriorate.

Tips for low-consumption driving of the winter is coming. While the temperatures drop in the cold months, shoots the fuel consumption. Germany’s big Autopportal auto.de reveals some tips that can reduce consumption by up to 20 percent. On unnecessary short-haul, like the trip to the nearest post box, is to renounce completely in the winter. Just in the first few kilometres, fuel consumption according to the oil company is Aral immensely high. By the lack of through rites also of engine wear is particularly strong.

For small distances is to make the car better and walking. The wintry weather has yet more problems for the consumption. Before the journey, the car must be often freed from snow and ice. This, it is advisable to use de-icer spray instead of a scratch the discs. The subsequent rinse with water ensures the ideal perspective.

In this way may be waived the rear window defroster and associated increased fuel consumption. A modern engine needs no warm-up time. Therefore, unnecessary downtime when running engines should be avoided. Switching off the engine is worth starting a period of 15 seconds. Still should be switched during the first 20 minutes of driving time, so at 2,000 RPM in the next aisle. Unnecessary acceleration and sudden braking or only provide increased consumption and wear. At the next shop visit, motorists should revert to a light oil. With the high-performance lubricant, fuel and electricity can be save. Also can be checked in on site also equal to the air filter, the lambda probe and the spark plugs. Who was travelling, should remember to remove unnecessary “Ballast” like roof racks.

Electric Vehicles

Published by:

Are fuel cells the solution of low range? Electric mobility. It is for vehicles with a clean drive in the future, cars that are powered with green energy and therefore no emissions. However, the battery-powered electric cars have some major drawbacks, which are heavy and costly batteries and the comparatively short range. Are fuel cells as a supplement, here the ideal solution? First battery-powered electric cars from smaller manufacturers such as the think city and the Tesla are Roadster already on the market, the latter even second-generation model, the Tesla Roadster 2.5. “With the Nissan leaf starts in the United States and Japan also the first large producer with a mass model” in the compact class and also the identical E-cars Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Peugeot iOn and Citroen C-zero stand shortly before delivery. The French car manufacturer Renault is planning even the launch of all four electric models in the different categories of vehicles for 2011 and 2012.

The electrification of the Drive has begun so long ago. But if you once more look at the customers or potential customers, one quickly realizes that many of the vehicles mainly to companies or authorities are to lease. The high acquisition or lease cost last but not least are background as also the mostly lack of infrastructure. Finally it is”easier to fuel electric cars at a charge column installed on the premises, as to hang a power cable from the third floor of the apartment in the city centre. The infrastructure of public charging stations finally still barely exists. The costs, as well as the problems of charging but are not the only point that could deter potential residential customers by purchasing a battery-powered electric cars. One of the biggest drawbacks is the relatively low range of usually less than 200 kilometers. Because even if the majority of the population travels daily anyway not nearly so far, is there even preserved freedoms, – such as just the Way a tank filled with well over 500 miles to drive – reluctant to.

“Improved batteries, the range problem in the foreseeable future will be but not solve, which is why automakers such as GM in the Chevrolet Volt on a generator as a so-called range extender” set. This generator is nothing more than a small gasoline engine. Another idea is the car with electric propulsion and fuel cell as energy converters. Typically it must refuel hydrogen to, which then produces the electrical energy for the drive together with oxygen in the fuel cell. Gushing out from the exhaust only water vapor, hydrogen occurs in nature but only in bound form and must be created only by using energy. But the biggest problem for this kind of vehicles is the complete lack of an infrastructure in the form of hydrogen filling stations. Volvo goes with his current research to the Benn material cell as Reichweitenverlangerer therefore a different, interesting-sounding way: two Volvo C30 will be for testing purposes with DRIVe electric additional fuel tank fitted. In a so-called reformer, extracted from the fuel (or alternative bio-fuel), gaseous hydrogen, produces electricity in a fuel cell. The great advantage to be the significantly increased range, as well as the anywhere given availability of gasoline as fuel. Downside is, that CO2 emissions are however they should be low and also incurred neither carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx) or soot particles.

Alternative Fuel

For the usage of this new fuel from the House of the CEHATROL, a variety speaks fuels EC of reasons. Freudenberg, 18.02.2010 – for the usage of this new fuel from the House of the CEHATROL mentions a variety of fuels EC reasons. Synthetic diesel fuel is not ‘alternative’ fuel, because it neither changes the infrastructure on the engines required. However, he greatly improved their properties in terms of life cycle assessment and sustainability. Not only since the last oil crisis, which left the prices of gasoline and diesel fuel significantly in the amount of fast, you need to think about possible alternatives to motor vehicle fuels. So also the Institute for internal combustion engines and automotive engineering at the Technical University (TU) Vienna. A study examined the environmental impact and the cost of natural gas alternatives compared to the conventional fuels gasoline and diesel fuel. The result at a glance: Compressed natural gas is ecologically superior especially in city traffic.

Synthetic Diesel fuel, however, scores on the basis of the existing gas stations and vehicle infrastructure in the economy. Produced the synthetic diesel from biomass he has the edge considerably. We drive.”is just as challenging as appropriate motto of the team of the energy cooperative Freudenberg EC I.g.. in Brandenburg, Germany. What does the cooperative on the legs, almost sounds like the well-known fairy tale: Although no gold, but diesel fuel – is produced from straw according to DIN EN 590 – won. Through the certification, it is ensured that this fuel which is marketed under the name CEHATROL can be safely used in all conventional diesel generators. Helmut Uhlig

European Slush

Leading winter tyre manufacturer offers high security and lowering costs environmental friendliness – seven innovation ten percent better slush qualities bring the premium tyres in comparison with its main competitors. Good driving on slush is the most important for 95 per cent of motorists according to a representative survey, because slushy snow means danger and is common. 20 percent lower rolling resistance provides the fuel-efficiency of Nokian WR G2 tires compared to several other European winter tyre of the same type\”product development manager explains Teppo Huovila. He consumes 0.3 litres less fuel on 100 kilometers at a midsize car with average consumption of 8.5 litres, which allows 3.5 percent fuel savings.\” In addition, CO2 emissions reduced significantly. While the Finn show excellent handling on snow-covered and dry road as well as strong grip when wet.

This eco-tires has the ideal combination of high safety and eco-friendliness reduction costs so the Nordic Winter specialist. Also, the Nokian WR G2 scores equal with seven innovations: slush edge, wiper blades, acceleration stabilizer, 3 D support plates, silica canola oil mix, asymmetrical profile and polished grooves. The slush edge displaced heavy mud mass and the wiper blades wipe the water from the road under braking, the acceleration stabilizer improves safety during rapid acceleration. In the rubber, no carcinogenic PAH oils are polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Most comprehensive size range with 28 new dimensions has been the size range now with 28 new dimensions almost doubled and is the most comprehensive in the trade: 61 14 inch of speed category T size up to 20 inch W tires with tip of 270 km/h are available. Almost every car model can thus be equipped. There are also six run-flat versions. The tyre with the XL label for the most part, they have a reinforced construction. Even at high speeds, the Nokian WR G2 run excellent on snow-covered and dry road.
