The twin-kidney grill, forward-leaning “shark nose”, and butterfly-styled doors provide a dramatic appearance. Many of these features are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. For instance, the sculptured tail lamps don’t just look amazing, they also improve the vehicle’s aerodynamics. Besides exterior design, the car’s state-of-the-art technology makes it one of the most revolutionary cars introduced in decades. The LifeDrive architecture makes it nimble on the road. The use of carbon and its low center of gravity 50:50 axle distribution provide the ideal basis for sports car handling. The most unique aspect of the LifeDrive design is the aluminum crafted Drive module, which includes the gas engine, electric motor, lithium-ion battery, and other electric parts. The hybrid drive train consists of a 231 horsepower turbo-charged 1.5 liter, three-cylinder engine and a 131 horsepower electric motor. The gas burning engine powers the rear wheels with a six-speed transmission. The electric motor controls the front wheels with a two-stage automatic gearbox. With both engines, the i8 is rated at a combined 362 horsepower. Thanks to the quick charging technology, it is possible to power the battery in 3.5 hours with a 110-volt outlet or 1.5 hours with a 220-volt charger. ,MERCEDES BENZ S550: INTELLIGENT DRIVE TECH The best characteristic of the 2015 Mercedes Benz S550 is the Intelligent Drive tech, which improves safety and helps drivers avoid crashes. Two of the most prominent features, cross-traffic assist and lane keeping assistant, utilize a mixture of radar arrays, sensors, cameras, and physical driver signals to prevent accidents. Cross-traffic assist includes two windshield mounted cameras that read movements at intersections so that additional brake pressure can be applied to avoid hitting another object or being. Lane keeping assistant prevents the vehicle from veering out of lines on the road. The star of the system is selective braking. This unique feature has the ability to activate only one wheel brake or a pair on one side of the automobile, which helps complete a stop or direct the car into a proper position. Another safety feature that can be found in the S550 is the attention assist, which keeps an eye out for drivers who are tired or distracted. Although it does not automatically shift the vehicle, it sends out a warning when the driver removes his or her hands from the wheel for over 10 seconds so that the car can be steered correctly. The interior is packed with gadgets like the large LCD instrument panel, updated voice command, app integration, and luxuries like the in-seat massagers. Everything is easy to read, and the entire design makes it simple to navigate the roads. Under the hood, the S550 has a 4.6 liter V8 engine with direct injection and twin turbos. The drive modes are either Eco or Sport. With one button, the driver adjusts the suspension for maximum comfort. The idle stop function reduces fuel consumption and emissions during stationary periods. Overall, the car responds like a dream. ,AUDI RS7 QUATTRO: AUDI DRIVE SELECT SYSTEM The 2015 Audi RS7 Quattro is an all-wheel drive, four-door vehicle with a twin-turbo 4.0 liter V8 engine, which produces 560 horsepower. An eight-speed Tiptronic transmission provides the performance of a manual shifter in an automatic form so that a driver has control over gear selection without having an actual clutch. The unique Drive Select system helps the car adjust to a specific type of driving. An onscreen menu allows the driver to choose Dynamic, Comfort, or an automatic setting. These change the engine output, transmission, suspension, and exhaust. At the Soft setting, the suspension is firm. The Comfort setting is lighter and better suited for longer trips. The Dynamic setting increases the engine’s pep, and once it’s activated, the exhaust begins to growl. No matter where the Audi RS7 drives, the performance is outstanding. To save fuel, the cylinder deactivation technology is ideal. Depending on input, it shuts intake valves of particular cylinders. In bumper-to-bumper traffic, the engine uses less power and consumes less fuel. Also, safety is a top priority. The 2015 RS7 includes side assist, pre-sense rear, and an optional Innovation package with HUD display and night vision assist. Thanks to the Audi Drive Select system, the driver can customize their driving style like never before. The car grips the road like a pro but remains comfortable and stylish at the same time.
The answer to that is no. Formula e uses a BMW i8 as their safety car and it is a hybrid, not fully electric. The car has a three cylinder petrol engine combined with an electric motor to give it a total of around 360 horsepower.
Without a doubt the BMW i8 is one hell of a good looking car but it’s specs, performance and speed doesn’t live up to the expectations. This car was never meant to be a fast super car, is was never produced to battle against the Audi R8 or the Mercedes GT R AMG, it was meant for efficiency and futuristic technology, but that doesn’t defeat the fact that it…….sucks. The i8 is a plug-in hybrid car, and its 1.5L, Inline 3 engine produces about 239 horsepower and its battery produces about 130 horsepower, combined it makes roughly 369 HP, and reaches 0–60 in the mid 4 second range, which isn’t horrible, it’s still faster than my dad’s Town and Country but a 4 cylinder 3 liter would have been more promising. The i8 has a starting price tag of about $150k, that cost more than a Porsche 911 and runs slower than a M3. Look at the NSX, also a hybrid with sharp looking features but humiliates the i8 in the spec class, the NSX has 3 separate batteries and has a 3.5L, turbocharged V6, which altogether outputs approximately 570 HP. The i8 lapped the Nürburgring in 8 minutes and 19.8 seconds that’s about 37 seconds slower than a 2017 Honda Civic Type R, the front-wheel drive record-holder (which is less powerful, but some 180kg lighter), and slower even than the Renault Sport Megane R26.R, which did an 8:17 nine years ago. So, looking for a fast car for around $150k? There are countless options, don’t get the i8, looking to save the world in a flashy hybrid get the NSX for a couple ten grand more. Love ya all
BMW, offers a single power train in the ,i8,. It mates a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder gas engine with an 11.6-kWh battery pack and two electric motors. The trio of power sources combines for a total of 369 horsepower, capable of driving all four wheels
Yes, that is how hybrid EVs work. Some are able to charge the traction battery from the ICE, regen and plug-in. (Eg. BMW i8) Many simply charge from regen. Eg. Non plug-in Toyotas, so called ‘self charging hybrids’, a misleading description. Most hybrids have small batteries and are unable to run on electric motor without the ICE also running. Some are able to use both motors simultaneously. While the battery charge lasts high performance is possible. In practice carrying two transmission systems is rather wasteful in terms of weight and servicing. At best hybrids are gas (petrol) cars that gain improved mpg by using some features of electric cars. On the plus side the configuration avoids the limitations of short range BEVs. (Eg. Nissan Leaf 24 or 30kWh) Now that long range, big battery EVs are available hybrids are not necessary. Some consider them nothing more than a means for automakers to perpetuate fossil fuel engines.
It will stop tonight at 8 in the evening. (Just joking - production will start again tomorrow morning…) In fact, the updated i8 will be presented in autumn 2017 with 50% more electric range and a nice upgrade of combined 400+ horsepower. It will be in the stores early 2018. I really hope, this brillant, groundbreaking car will have a long history!
I guess it depends on how you define “worse”. Is the BMW i3 “worse” than a Tesla Model 3? Maybe, inasmuch that the range of the i3 isn’t as great as the Model 3. It’s not particularly cheap either, but that’s BMW for you. The i3 on the other hand, has a better interior I think, and it’s a bigger car. Is the BMW i8 “worse” than a Tesla Model S? Perhaps, by some metrics it is. Others, like range and refuelling time, not so much. Either way, the fact of the matter is that what we can do with electric cars, and the price point that we can sell them at, is a rapidly moving target thanks to innovation in battery technology. The i3 was introduced in 2013, and little has changed about it since then. The Tesla Model 3 has ,just, come onto the market, with wide-scale manufacturing starting in December 2017. So of course the Model 3’s batteries are better, take the car farther, and produce more horsepower. Comparing BMW’s i8 to a Tesla Model S isn’t completely fair for either one, since the i8 has a drivetrain more like a really sporty Chevy Volt than anything else on the market. It’s a plug-in hybrid that has a battery big enough to take you to work and back without having to switch to gas. But why doesn’t BMW just produce an awesome all-electric car like Tesla has? Well, it’s because they haven’t been spending the past 100 years perfecting electric cars, they’ve been spending that time perfecting gas cars. When Tesla started production of the Model S, the reaction from most automakers was one of “uh, sure, whatever buddy. Nobody has succeeded in breaking into the auto industry in the past 60 years. It’s a lot harder than it looks” combined with “Nobody wants an electric car, least of all an expensive one.”
Keeping it short and simple It’s Mercedes benz! When it comes to luxury, comfort and value for money Mercedes cars are just up to point, precise and class leading in every single way.With over 100 years in the automobile industry, the illustrious car company is one of the most coveted and well-known out there. It all began with Karl Benz, a German engine designer and automobile engineer who in 1886 invented the modern automobile which the first car that was powered by petrol.Since then only Mercedes has always been in the top league.Right away from huge parts such as The Engine to small parts like Headlamps and wipers, ,The attention to detail ,Given in these cars is just unmatched and first in class, it gives a ,combined rich feel of luxury and power at the same time. •,Mercedes was first in the market to introduce ,Multibeam bending LED’s ,which later became a trend in the market.Mercedes has always been a trendsetter in many ways. ,MULTIBEAM LED headlamps in the new E-Class. •Mercedes was the first to develop in collaboration with ,BOSCH ,and use the most used breaking system in today’s automotive world, which is ,The ANTILOCK Braking SYSTEM ( ABS ) in 1978. •1954 SL Gullwing was the first car in the world to feature a four stroke petrol engine with direct fuel injection. •It is said that a Mercedes car is welded at nearly 10,000 places because of which the nuts and bolts don't get loose. What this gives is a car that never rattles, despite its age or how it has been driven. •Many other safety features like airbags and Electronic stability programme too were seen first on Mercedes cars. •,Mercedes-Benz has always been an originator. When they started producing the Mercedes-Benz 260 D from 1936 to 1940, it was one of the first cars to use a diesel engine. This means that an internal combustion engine ignites its fuel via the compression of nothing but air. The ,G-Wagon, from Mercedes is a ,Hummer, Killer in each and every sense. It carries forward the essence of a full streched SUV, ,more than enough ride height, perfect luxurious interiors, trued and tested in extreme conditions for ,hill hold and hill climb assist,. when it comes to interiors and features, Mercedes has Tech packed it’s models with almost more than every thing you’ll ever require. Those iconic ,A.C Vents ,say a lot in their own, Two large LED displays, ,The trackpad, the audio system, The ambient lighting,, it’s just the place you would want to be in. When it comes to power the ,AMG ,series of engines roar like a lion.Ample amount of torque and horsepowers to go ,0–100Kmph in 3.5–5 seconds ( depending on the model) Now when it comes to luxury, there’s the ,S-Class (The epitome of luxury and comfort),, and if by god’s grace you’ve got ,The MAYBACH, then i think a ,5 star suite ,should be compared to it. From foot massager to 2 stage audio control and everything is fitted with elegance and grace that brings practicality and purpose in the same bucket.,Thats all for the Mercedes which is a clear winner here. Following, I’ve discussed about how BMW can be your second choice. Ever since it’s evolution, The ,BAVARIAN MOTOR WORKS or Bayerische Motoren Werke, ,( BMW ) ,has been one of the most demanded and most drived cars,. Whether be it’s intuitive features or being it’s Iconic ,Headlamps, ,or ,M-series engines,, it has always been a treat for the eyes, Riders, and for the viewers as well.BMW is more of a practical car manufacturer which according to me focuses more on efficiency, effectiveness and ride quality. They’re not prominently in the Luxury game , but yes they definitely are the top most rivals in the ,Performance game., I grew up playing the ,EA - NEED FOR SPEED MOST -WANTED,, which was one of the most demanded and most played game at some point of time, and if you’ve played this game ever, you can remember, the whole story starts off because youR ,BMW-M3 ,gets taken away by crook. The whole story revolved around you defeating all the rivals (10 of them) and getting back your car ( ,THE BMW M3 ). Bmw has always been a master in ,Hybrid drives ( electric + petrol ) The BMW I8 ,is one of the most loved car of all times. You can see here, it gives a ,cockpit ,like experience when you look at this masterpiece’s interiors! The Bmw I8 was so popular that celebrities ,like Sachin Tendulkar, Justin Beiber , Pierce brosnan ,and many other celebs like them own this jewel in their garage fleet. Bmw has a foot in the luxury world too by its ,7-series ,variant, and undoubtedly it is full of features and a really really safe car, it has all the luxury amenities but when you’ll compare to it’s rival that is the ,S-class,, I don’t think it has got a chance against it, it can give the S-class a tough fight but , Mercedes S-class will always be the clear winner. So I would like to conclude by saying that, there are 100’s of car manufacturers out there, BMW, MERCEDES, AUDI these are top of the line car manufacturers which are famous for their outstanding quality, features , luxury and yes ofcourse price. But in these top of the line car companies Mercedes is still and hopefully will remain at the pinnacle. Image source :- ,Google,, ,Pinterest Thanks Pranjal singh
