Infiniti M35h (2011) [Reviews]

The "hybrid driver" of Hyundai, Infiniti M35h, will introduce the first direction and braking technologies when it goes on sale in the U.S. and Europe in 2011. Debut systems are designed to provide environmental benefits and improved handling, strengthen the forces are already at the center of the Infiniti M35h with its innovative motor / two clutch system.

The power train, which marries a V6 gasoline engine with charismatic 50 kW (68 hp) electric motor integrated in the 7-speed automatic transmission, simplicity is a key principle in the development of the steering and brakes the high performance luxury sedan.

Check the M35h Infiniti is electro-hydraulic system "on demand" for help. It offers the advantages of control - a soft natural feel and hydraulic steering to improve fuel efficiency and the electrical system - when the engine stops only when the wheel is turned further increase efficiency. The system is smaller than a conventional power steering set-up, business achieved by integrating multiple parts.

The brakes are well designed primarily to meet the needs of sport sedan buyers', but at the same time contribute to a lower carbon footprint for the Infiniti M35h, low CO2 champion of the all-new Infiniti M Line sedan line-up.

Engineers for the hybrid system itself for the solution. What they came up with - a way to use the electric motor to drive the vehicle the brake cylinders - represents another innovation in the world first for the Japanese.

The system is called Driven Smart electric brake. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the braking force, while maintaining the hydraulic pressure of the friction brake is controlled to help maximize energy recovery hybrid engine. Due to its simple structure, in which the motor operates directly brake cylinders, intelligence-driven electric brakes have the potential to be a key element of all future Infiniti hybrid direct response.

The simplicity of these elegant mechanical solutions, with its emphasis on more compact, lighter and fewer parts, is made possible by an advanced computer control.

Another advantage of the new steering and brake systems is that they are innovative push to improve the driving experience than dilute in some hybrid vehicles. Designed for quick and responsive with a strong bias sporty rear-wheel drive disk management, the Infiniti M35h aims to provide an exciting driving in all situations.

Central to this is the only engine / two clutch system. The first clutch is installed between the naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V6 and the electric motor, which is integrated in the automatic transmission. The electronically controlled clutch allows the decoupling of the V6 when the car is in electric drives and power regeneration modes. Decoupling the V6 reduces drag and increases mechanical efficiency of the electric motor.

Aided by an exceptionally fast charge / discharge response to lithium-ion battery, the result is a hybrid, which is electrically operated for longer, and higher speeds of conventional hybrids.

However, when the driver asks the Infiniti M35h responds like a real high performance machine, offering the linear acceleration and blameless rear wheel drive handling of a true Infiniti - with all the charisma of one of the big V6 essence. As the control of seven-speed adaptive changes (ASC) automatic transmission that blips the throttle downchanges, new technologies for braking and handling are an integral part of positioning the hybrid Infiniti M35h to please the most demanding the conductors.

Hyundai's first hybrid, the M35h is the lack of CO2 out of the new M-Line brand, which also includes petrol and diesel models, which are the first M to be sold in all 34 markets worldwide Hyundai .

Among the many other Infiniti M requests to fame is the first Blind Spot Intervention (BSI), state-of-the-art forest climate control air and active noise control, while the comfort and luxury are supported with dual-piston dampers and the availability of semi-aniline leather in the spacious cabin.

Nissan Micra DIG-S (2012) [Reviews]

Nissan to focus on reducing emissions is not confined to the creation of zero-emission electric vehicles like the blade of a pioneer and award-winning Nissan.

It develops advanced technologies as part of Nissan's Pure Drive strategy to guide the company's efforts to reduce emissions and fuel consumption of all the cars, and led to launch a new engine is one of the lowest CO2 figures in the world .

Powering the latest version of the popular car Nissan Micra city - the DIG-S - the leading gas engine produces only 95 g CO2/km and underlines Nissan's leadership as a zero-emission mobility and weak.

Unit direct injection Supercharger - thus the name of the car: direct injection gasoline-Supercharger (DIG-S) - the engine is the embodiment of Nissan's Pure Drive strategy, which produces a sparkling performance, frugal economy and exceptionally low emissions. It is designed to meet and exceed the daily driving needs of the modern world and is the ideal partner for Micra, Nissan's small city car.

As well as reducing emissions, this new engine to reduce car use in many European countries. Britain, for example, cars producing less than 100g/km of CO2 does not attract the annual fee and is free of road from the capital on charges of congestion daily.

In France, customers who buy a car that produces less than 110 g / km will receive a payment of € 400 of bonus by the government, while in Holland cars like the Nissan Micra DIG-S are exempt from tax in the country BMP saves around € 1000.

"Nissan is also committed to reduce emissions from vehicles powered by internal combustion engine, as is the development of new electric zero-emission vehicles. Nissan Micra DIG-S highlights how our engineers have come."

"Ultra-low emissions without compromising when it comes to handling the media the Nissan Micra DIG-S sets new standards for the current crop of city cars. There is no petrol other compact hatchback can match its overall effectiveness ... and is more than a match for a diesel equivalent, "said Pierre Loing, Vice President of Product Strategy and Planning, Nissan International SA

Technical innovation has been packed in the engine. The DIG-S uses a Miller cycle and direct fuel injection to increase the compression ratio of 13 to 1 for a more efficient combustion and a compressor for an instant response and increased power. And as the delivery ultra low CO2 emissions, light weight, low friction 1198 cc three-cylinder unit develops an output expected from a conventional 1.5-liter four-cylinder.

By minimizing heat, friction and pumping losses as much as possible, Nissan engineers have created an engine that sets the tone for the rest of the industry. Its three-cylinder configuration provides many advantages such as lower weight and a greater reduction in friction losses because they have fewer moving parts. Other gains are made through the adoption of advanced management of engine start / stop and regenerative energy.

The results are amazing. Direct Injection Gasoline-Supercharger (DIG-S) engine produces 72kW (98PS) and 142Nm, while CO2 emissions are 95 g / km, the manual version and 115 g / km for the CVT version. Maximum speed is 180 km / h for the manual. Combined cycle fuel economy figures for the manual version is 4.1 Visia l/100kmh.

Common industry practice, these data refer to the main output level version - Visia - as more devices can be found in the plusher models means extra weight, which affects the performance of emissions. But such is the effectiveness of the most popular version of the unit, Acenta, also promises an excellent picture of CO2: 99 g / km in manual form.

Low running costs are guaranteed to be not only an excellent fuel economy, but also thanks to tax relief granted on the basis of its emissions in many European countries to reduce maintenance bills and a smaller engine.

This remarkable engine of less than 100 g / km emission levels easily accessible, while the cost of ownership is a serious alternative to a comparable diesel engine ... with the added advantage of greater refinement. His first appearance to feed the new Micra is an irresistible combination.

References Micra city have been honed over decades of class leading models. Packed with new technologies and on the basis of a new platform in Europe linked to the fourth generation Micra examples are constructed in a completely new plant in India. Also built in China, Mexico and Thailand and sold in 160 countries around the world.

Launched last year, the compact city car is perfect inside the outside but spacious. The city driving is facilitated by the visibility of the ruling class and the technology is not only innovative, but really useful, too. Available in either standard or optional are such features as the Nissan Connect, a fully integrated package of entertainment and information that incorporates a touch screen satellite navigation.

But perhaps the most useful feature for a city car - and the technology that is rarely found in cars much more - as is parking (PSM) system. As its name implies, the system measures parking spaces and potentially allows the driver know if it is large enough for the car or not.

It comes in one body style bodywork with five doors, three trim levels - Visia, Acenta and Tekna - and with a choice of two gasoline engines. And YOU-S, which is a naturally aspirated 1.2 liter engine developing 59kW (80PS).

Nissan Micra DIG-S made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2011 (March 3-13) with sales starting in the summer of 2011.

"It is clear that our new DIG-S engine offers the best solution for small cars like the Micra. With instantaneous response, performance and a strong economy is more than a match for any diesel engine of similar power, but their level of emissions is much better, "Pierre Loing.

"We were able to achieve this ultra-low CO2 figure of a cost-effective package and without the complication of particulate filters needed to clean up emissions from diesel engines and that are not fully compatible with the car spends most of his life in the city. "
