Electric cars: just under 40,000 public charging points in germany

39.358 public charging points are currently listed in the charging station register of the german association of energy and water industries (bdew); one seventh of these are dc fast chargers. This means that the number of charging points has increased by around 15,000 compared to december 2019.000, and by 3,800 in the last three months alone.

There has also been a significant increase in the expansion of private charging infrastructure, the bdew reported . According to the federal ministry of transport, since the start of the request program for private wallboxes at the end of november 2020, requests for more than 300,000 wallboxes have been submitted.000 wallboxes have been requested. This is significant, as more than 9 out of 10 charging processes have so far taken place at home or at work.

"It is more than questionable whether we need a million charging points by 2030, because that would be a scenario based on now outdated premises: 900.000 standard charging points of 11 kw", said kerstin andreae, chairwoman of the bdew board of directors. More and more vehicles were already able to charge faster. This dynamic, as well as the type of (also) electrically powered vehicles, had to be taken into account when expanding the charging infrastructure.

Small curve sweep: peugeot 207 rc with 175 hp in the test

Bad durkheim, 14. May 2007 – the clouds hung deep over the hugles of the sadial wine strain, the wind whips the rain almost horizontal through the vineyards. The peugeot 207 rc shows up completely unimpressed. He takes the test track, a review of the former rally at the front pediatric area, at a considerable pace. Read what the little frenchman has to offer anything else.

17-zollersmabig

As so often with ps strong cars, the 207 rc does not look at his power at first glance. The potent small car can be seen at most on the 17-inch alloy wheels, the silver backmirring, the tattered rear slices, the roof edge spoiler, the double tailpipe and the side plankings in body color. In order to take into account the increased driving performance, in the interior sports seats with increased side cheeks are used. In the top model rc cup, in addition to the strong toned side and rear windows and the headlights in "chrome-shadow" optics, the rear stobbar is painted in body color.

In 7.1 seconds at speed 100

The heart stuck of the 207 rc is the 175 hp gasoline direct injector developed in collaboration with bmw. The same engine is used in the mini cooper s. The 1.6-liter unit accelerates the lowen from the stand in 7.1 seconds at speed 100. If the tacho needle displays a highest speed of 220 km / h. Peugeot gives an average consumption of 7.2 liters for the 207 rc, the mini needs 6.9 liters due to its weight advantage of 120 kilograms. Thanks to the relatively low weight of 1.325 kilograms accelerates the low-strong frenchman subjectively and also the sound of the double tailpipe confirmed the sporty impression.

Offenbach, 13. August 2013 – a few years ago, the japanese contribution to the compact station wagon market was extremely limited. Until 2008, only mitsubishi still offered the lancer station wagon, which had recently become very outdated. But the high proportion of station wagons among the korean competition seems to attract the japanese. Following in toyota’s footsteps, honda is now introducing the civic tourer, a station wagon in the golf class.

Unconventional, but spacious

Honda presented a study of a civic station wagon at the geneva motor show in the spring of this year. Except for a few details, the production model resembles this concept car. The press department speaks of a "sporty, sleek and dynamic auberen". On a more sober note, the new rear end is, to put it mildly, a bit of an acquired taste. The civic tourer stands out visually from the more sedate german competition, which need not be a fault, because there are plenty of boring cars out there. Sales figures will show whether the look is compatible with the masses.

The rear is not only visually voluminous. According to honda’s own figures, 624 liters fit into the trunk without folding down the back seat. That’s a little more than the vw golf variant (605 liters) and skoda octavia combi (610 liters) offer, although the small differences in practice were hardly allowed to play a role. According to the manufacturer, a maximum of 1668 liters can be stored in the rear when the rear seats are folded down. Compared to the competition, this is also a very respectable figure, especially as the civic remains compact even as an estate. With a length of 4.52 meters, it is shorter than many models in this class.

Vienna, 8. December 2014 – this city on the black sea, in which i like to balance myself, is less carried out by traffic than a moving particle system. This is in its lowest form of old shigulis, which we were identified here muhelos as fiat 124. The italian communism connection of the khrushchov-ara allows fiat subscription products in the russian district category samara in the mid-sixties. The then fiat-prasident valetta (giovanni agnellis process) got the order in 1966 to which renault and volkswagen had also applied: fiat moge build a factory with a performance of daily 2000 passenger cars and operate a while. Togliattigrad, named after the italian communist carryer palmiro togliatti, was stambed from the ground immediately after signing of the contract. Even today, the even in the east is made barely scattered lada small cars priora and kalina. As far as drawing on financial experts follows, bankruptcy is inevitable. Renault, which has a blocking minority of 25 percent, is also on the poor sales figures.

Trutil without a middle class, but with uniformed suv

This duster prognosis also appears comprehensible here in the black seahafenstadt. Sometimes you can see volgas or even lada nivas – the railing wagon was also popular with us. Unfortunately rust-like. Rost is hardly considered a problem here. Solidified dirt seems to hold the licking body together. Brave stochers the cars over blank strain track rails that give the deep potholes grip and give stutz frying. Frequently sees (or overlook) faceless mass produce from korea or japan, cars that look like loveless felled handbags. A surprisingly often, signaling for the social absence of a wide middle class, coarse german or american suvs occur – basic law in black, low-rimmed with noble wheels and tattered slices. They were never stopped on bin, but a shiguli or an old volga limousine wobble quickly and after a short negotiating – it’s about the prematurity of the eighty cents and four euros – the knees are absorbed behind the narrow front seats of the now private taxis to themselves to entrust the driving art of a man, from which one usually never looks much more than shield cap, leather jacket and what the backpack gives from the passed an uncomfortable life. Mostly, after some time, a sharp -fall-damaged but robust laugh gets in progress, as if an old diesel engine starts briefly and then falling again with some misalungs. This is due to my companion, which as a native speaker dominated the subtleties russian-judische judes and demonstrates an amazing fearlessness given "alcoholic unfamilies", as it calls the peaceful rupel,.

Toyota shows Yaris Cross design line'adventure''adventure'

Toyota wants to make the yaris cross, the crossover variant of his polo competitor yaris with salamitics. Before the market launch of the yaris cross in september, a second design variant name is now "advanture" implemented, but they should also come to the market only in the fall of 2021.

Japan-bolide: the new sports car lexus is-f

Pegnitz, 13. June 2008 – the lexus is does not at all correspond to the image that the japanese noble brand usually presents: consistently sporty, it once again tries to catch up with the bmw 3 series. 423 hp provide for propulsion, engineers of the motorcycle manufacturer yamaha helped with the modification. Does the sports sedan have a chance in germany??

Cut to size

The lexus is-f can’t deny its base, the is sedan. However, it looks much more aggressive from the sheet metal and flaunts a power dome that runs across the entire hood. On the sides, the dark 19-inch alloy wheels in bbs design stand out. Their ten spokes are shaped like propeller blades, which transport cool air to the brakes and warm air away again. The two twin tailpipes protrude from the rear in an unusual arrangement: the oval ends are offset diagonally above one another. After all, this design seems to be setting a precedent: in the new ferrari california, the exhaust gas is disposed of in a similar way.

Where is the button?

We take a seat on the standard leather chair and find it quite hard. After a few minutes of driving we have to admit that the seats are comfortable and do well on longer journeys. The side bolsters keep the body in position even when cornering well, but we look in vain for a button to adjust the bolsters individually as in the bmw m3. For a car from tech-loving japan, we expected this, and we’ll be missing more buttons as the test progresses.

Exhaust gas fraud: audi board member for development leaves

Audi has parted ways with its chief technology officer stefan knirsch. The 50-year-old, who only took up his post in january, "is resigning from his position with immediate effect and leaving the company by mutual agreement with the supervisory board," audi announced in ingolstadt today. Reasons not given. However, it has been confirmed in the volkswagen group environment that the u.S. Law firm jones day found information during its investigations into the emissions fraud on behalf of the volkswagen supervisory board that massively incriminated knirsch.

According to the report, he was already aware of the manipulation of the diesel engines at an earlier stage. In addition, employees are said to have incriminated knirsch. Knirsch had worked, with interruptions, at audi and porsche since 1990, and had headed engine development at volkswagen’s audi brand since 2013. Knirsch was appointed in december as the successor to ulrich hackenberg, audi’s board member for development, who was dismissed after the emissions cheating case.

Audi is one of the most important brands in the volkswagen group: with its luxury cars, audi ag has generated almost half of volkswagen’s consolidated profit in recent years. Audi’s history began at the turn of the century in saxony, where the wanderer, horch, audi and dkw companies built bicycles, motorcycles and cars. After the second world war, audi started anew on a former military site in ingolstadt. In 1958, the company became a wholly owned subsidiary of daimler-benz ag, then in 1964 it changed hands to volkswagen.

Of the mirrors writes in its new edition, it goes to hints, according to which the tesla system functions have been integrated, for which it did not provide for safety in the context of the so-called type-approval. Concretely, these are functions for uber holding advances. In addition, it won in the suddeutsche zeitung from friday (8. July 2016) without real details, "technology experts of the eu commission" discussed whether "autopilot" was covered by the type. Tesla annulled the information.

Tesla had provided the "autopilot" system via software update in autumn 2016. It is a combination of driving assistance features that allow the car to keep track, tempo and distance.

Erlzonig: new mercedes ml on trial ride

Hair, 8. December 2010 – the mercedes ml has been in its current form since 2005 on the market and was eliminated in 2008. For 2011, the new ml is denied. He was painted by our erlzonig photographer in test drives in sudenuropa. Two ml prototypes were in combination with two current ml models, a bmw x5 and a porsche cayenne on the way.

Lower than so far

Compared to the current model and also to x5 and cayenne falls on that the new ml has a slightly lower. The headlights are based on the youngest design language from unterturnkheim. On the side, the metal dress of the ml gets rising to the rear "wrinkles", how to know them from the current e-class. The current ml is much smoother at this point.

Wide engine spectrum possible

For the drive, a wide range of gasoline and diesel engines is in question. The entry could mark the new 204 hp strong 2.2-liter self-cord, which there is also in the s-class as 250 cdi. Also fit the three-liter turbo diesel, which does the s 350 bluetec 258 hp. For the petrol, the new 3.5-liter v6 was a good figure with 306 hp. In the ml 500, it is most likely to run out of 4.6 liter biturbo v8 ottomotor with 435 hp and 700 nm torque. And of course we expect an amg version again. It is probably equipped with the new 5.5-liter v8 charged by two turbos, which probably carries around 550 hp.

Mazda sets with the mx-30 on the tokyo motor show (24. October to 4. November 2019) his first battery electrical car. With a 355 volt lithium battery from 35.5 kwh fishing enhancers, it should reach a range of 200 km in the wltp. Mazda describes the body form itself as suv – and maybe you should start: with coupe-former roofing. Both individually and also in combination has been a recipe for success in the market for years.

Mazda explains in his press release that "the mazda mx-30 is one of the few electric cars as a conventionally powered vehicle ride". It really was the same way, mazda has been a coarse backrest. Electric cars are precisely damaged that their drive type is almost unobstructed to all conventional by their principle.

No pure propaganda

It is not allowed to ame that the responsible persons with this date have only tried to win potential skeptics for electro car. Because mazda was not mazda, if you did not try there, to bring comfort and jerking together in seamless harmony. That this is not a pure propaganda, we have already convinced test drives with different mazda models.
