Aston Martin's Rapide E to Use Noise-Cancelling Tires From Pirelli

  Aston Martin's Rapide E to Use Noise-Cancelling Tires From Pirelli Pirelli is using special technology to make Aston's first EV much quieter than gasoline-powered cars of the past.This month, Aston Martin made its plans public to sell an extremely limited-production Rapide E electric sedan. Tire manufacturer Pirelli followed up that announcement with the new P Zero line tires that it is developing specifically for the new Aston. The chief features of these special P Zeros will be a low rolling resistance to maximize the car's battery range, and a noise-cancelling system within the tires to keep peace and quiet inside the driver's cabin.

“Our team is thrilled to present our mobile charging solutions for real-world applications in the United Kingdom. We hope this feasibility study will prove that flexible EV charging can be effectively integrated in cities in the UK and We Test 6 Electric Cars To Find Out Which Goes Furthest Per Charge .

And we drove them until the battery ran completely out of charge.

Take six of the best-selling electric cars in Italy, give each a full charge and go on a long mixed journey between the city, highway and the countryside until the batteries are completely empty.

Here, in short, is what our fellow scribes over at Motor1.com Italy have done for the first time to compare the cars with zero-emissions to see how many kilometers each one can travel before hitting 0.

The purpose of this special comparison between electric cars is not just to answer the question “how far can it go?” but to test its real autonomy. Even more important is to understand how much each really consumes. Or, in other words, to test its efficiency, because it is good to get used to parameters such as kWh / 100 km and km / kWh that will soon become more familiar to everyone.

Volkswagen Wants to Move One Million Electric Vehicles Annually by 2025

  Volkswagen Wants to Move One Million Electric Vehicles Annually by 2025 Key to Volkswagen's lofty electric vehicle sales target is its new MEB modular platform, designed around batteries instead of internal combustion.Its first step will be to sell 150,000 electric vehicles worldwide in 2020 on its upswing toward a million annually by 2025, as reported by CNET. This rapid growth will supposedly be accomplished using a new electric vehicle-only platform, which Volkswagen calls "MEB.

Our tests have found electric cars that fall far short of the ranges claimed by their manufacturer, with one falling 80 miles shy of the claimed figure. To find out which electric cars you should consider, go to the best electric cars . How about a hybrid car ? For most people, particularly those who don’t

The cars that were tested

Representing the battery-powered category, which are not toys at all, but comfortable, safe and practical vehicles like many petrol or diesel cars, we have chosen six of the best-selling models in our country. The smallest is the smart EQ fortwo, the one that also has the least battery capacity, while the Renault Zoe and the Nissan Leaf cover the type of common compact zero-emission cars.

The SUV and electric crossover segment is well represented by the Hyundai Kona Electric, but also by the luxurious and original Jaguar I-Pace, plus the Tesla Model S, which is ready to confirm the qualities that have made it one of the best selling electrics in the world.

Path

The test takes place on a journey of about 150 km in and out of Rome composed of 45% city driving, another 45% extra-urban and a 10% highway, a loop circuit that summarizes the classic journey of home-work, but also the trips to the airport or a quieter weekend at the lake. The goal, for all the cars involved in this test is what we call “Where I arrive with …”, is to empty the battery charge to establish the true autonomy of each model, but also draw up a ranking based on the consumption of electricity.

The range test of the electric cars took place in and around Rome; the course consisted of 45 percent city and urban roads, 45 percent country roads and 10 Since this test track was over 150 kilometres, the Smart EQ fortwo could not even complete it with a single battery charge . It ran out after 124 km.

In a test of the automatic emergency braking (AEB) system in 25 vehicles , the all- electric crossover from Jaguar Its AEB system kicked in at 85 kph (52.82 miles per hour). The Jaguar E-Pace managed a relatively good result We Test 6 Electric Cars To Find Out Which Goes Furthest Per Charge .

The Hyundai Kona is the most efficient

The first to stop is the smart EQ fortwo, the one that goes the farthest is the Tesla Model S and so far there are no surprises, while the final ranking of efficiency is less predictable. What we couldn’t anticipate is that the unexpected winner is the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Korean novelty that knows how to best lower the consumption of electricity without sacrificing performance.

Do they travel more or less the same as stated figures?

Another interesting fact that emerges from this proof is that of real autonomy, different from the ones declared, but not by too much. The percentage differences between declared and tested are also significant and all with minus signs (each travels less than stated before running out of juice), but yes, the homologations are only laboratory tests.

Our partners

For this special comparative test we have been able to count on the collaboration of some technical partners who have made the test of the road easier and safer. What helped us in the electric recharge was Repower through PALINA installed at the Hotel Artis in Rome, the starting point of the test.

To make it less problematic the exhaustion of the electric energy and the consequent stop along the way has been Europ Assistance that with its tow truck has proceeded to rescue the cars as they remained with discharged batteries.
