Luxury liner with auxiliary motor: mercedes s 400 bluehybrid

Stuttgart, 22. September 2008 – in the topic of hybrid cars, german manufacturers had to fit a long time. Well, because some toyota prius already 600.000 kilometers and more have unwound, mercedes introduces his first form-ready model in the S 400 bluehybrid. But the customers must be patient until the coming summer, until they get this "mildhybrid" can put in the garage. We already had the opportunity to try the car.

No purely electric driving

The S-class differs from the S-class, apart from a side-mounted plaque and the hybrid lettering on the stern, not from its conventionally powered sisters. Our test vehicle still carries the well-known design dress, but when the hybrid-mercedes will come to the market for the next year, he has modified the facelift, which was expecting the facelift in 2009,. As in the inside of the word hybrid at the center console, no difference can be seen inside. There are the usual steering column lever to operate the seven-speed automatic, the known instruments and switches. When the end is switched on, however, a battery symbol in the main instrument becomes visible. We turn the end of the end and horns – a normal engine noise. Unlike the toyota prius or the lexus LS 600H, the hybrid S-class is instructed on the sprit burner to build up. Loose slide silently as japanese full hybrid competition is not in it. The S 400 bluehybrid is a so-called mildhybrid whose hybrid module leaves much smaller and correspondingly less powerful than in a full-hybrid and no purely electric driving allowed.

Milan, 29. October 2010 – seemingly quiet and secretly the powertrain division of fiat has developed a double-clutch transmission, respect. It will not be about "from the top" in the market introduced, but just the little alfa romeo mito makes the beginning – the giulietta follows some later. Up­interesting "multiir"-valve control is the new double­clutch­transmission already the second technical exclamation mark of the italians in a short time. The MITO 1.4 16V DCT contributes both under the hood and thus offers one of the most modern coal series drives. We were able to drive him for the first time in italy.

Cardinal question: wet or dry?

But before we turn to the sporty-chic small car, a look at the technology. In contrast to automatic transmissions with hydraulic torque converter, the transmission of the moment for dual-clutch gearboxes is known via one of two couplings, which connect two partial transmissions to the drive. The course is changed without traction interruption by igniting the one clutch, while the other open.

In the fiat group, one has now consciously for a "dry" double clutch gear decided. Different to "wet" versions, such as you use VW and audi for their torque models, dry variants are designed for soil development so far only for torques up to about 250 nm. For example, in VW golf 1.4 TSI a seven-speed dry double-clutch gearbox or in the renault megane / scenic a dry 6-speed DKG of geutrung.

Closing party: new registrations in september 2009

Closing party: new registrations in september 2009

Hanover, 12. October 2009 – from now on the cure begins. Already at the end of september, three months before the end of the year, almost as many passenger cars have been sold as in the whole of 2008 – just under three million. Nevertheless, it would be too easy to extrapolate without further ado. Almost four million units had to be sold by the end of the year, which of course is not possible. September showed a slight upturn – thanks to the scrappage scheme, there were probably also many deliveries of cars that had a longer waiting period. And especially with popular models such as the golf, this may continue for some time to come.

After the pramie

But it will get quieter, now only the latecomers are coming, the premium pot is empty. Some market observers expect sales figures for the rest of the year to be worse than in previous years. The reason: prospective buyers who could not or did not want to benefit from the scrappage scheme are now waiting for spring to arrive. As cynical as it may sound, they are hoping that the car dealers’ need will increase and that prices will continue to fall until then. Some carmakers are trying to prevent the worst from happening by already launching rough cost-cutting programs.

In actual figures, new registrations in september were once again outstanding. Over 316.000 passenger cars were sold, as is currently the case, mainly smaller vehicles. In the year to date, some manufacturers have even doubled their sales as a result. According to the federal motor transport authority, the highest growth rates were recorded by lada (+140%), hyundai (+118%) and fiat (+97%). But german manufacturers such as ford (+39.2%), VW (+34.0%) and opel (+32.4%) also made significant gains in the interim results. These three can be particularly pleased because their absolute gains are much higher than the percentage figures would indicate. Mercedes (-17.0%), porsche (-10.0%) and BMW (-9.1%), on the other hand, lost again – admittedly not only because the scrappage bonus is of little benefit to them. Their losses are mainly due to weak sales of company cars. The biggest losses were suffered by the foreign brands saab (-64.8%), general motors (-57.9%) and chrysler (-47.3%).
