► 2014 BMW C evolution
With 11 kW continuous output (homologation according to ECE R85 to
determine motor outputs) and 35 kW peak output, the "C evolution" has a
powerful motor and provides a high level of riding fun. The top speed is
electronically limited to 120 km/h. The scooter supremely handles motorway
riding and overtaking - even with a passenger. It is also capable of
effortless hill starts on steep slopes with a pillion passenger. In terms
of acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h, it comfortably holds its own against
current maxi scooters a capacity of 600 cc or more.
Compared to conventional combustion engines, the electric drive of the
"C evolution" also offers significant advantages at low speeds in
particular. Thanks to elaborate power electronics settings, the alternator
offers the rider an instant, spontaneous response. There are no delays in
torque build-up at all as are typical in combustion engines due to the
clutch engaging and disengaging.
At 8 kWh, the storage capacity of the battery is extremely generous and
ensures a range of up to 100 kilometres. This means that realistic
zero-emissions riding in the big city and in urban environments is no
problem at all. As in other areas, BMW Motorrad has been able to draw on
synergy effects with BMW automobiles here. For example, the "C evolution"
uses the same lithium-ion storage modules as are installed in the BMW i3.
Here, developers paid particular attention to the quality and service life
of the storage modules so as to ensure that the range is preserved even
after many years of service life and in very cold weather.
One of the main technological challenges was optimum cooling of the
high-voltage battery. On the one hand it was necessary to avoid excessively
low temperatures due to the fact that the interior resistance of the cells
is heavily increased as a result, thereby reducing power. On the other
hand, the temperatures must not be too high since this would impair the
lifetime of the cells.
While in electrically powered cars a cooling agent is normally used to cool
the battery, air cooling is used in the "C evolution" in order to save
space and weight. The heat of the high-voltage battery is dissipated by
means of an aerodynamically optimised cooling air shaft at the centre of
the battery casing through which there is a constant flow of air. To ensure
optimum heat dissipation, the battery base has longitudinally arranged
However, the battery casing in die-cast aluminium not only holds the cells
with their special architecture but also the entire electronics unit for
monitoring the cells. It also acts as a load-bearing chassis element.
The power electronics for the electric drive is installed behind the
battery casing. This not only takes care of controlling the alternator
within a range of 100 to 150 volts but also responds to rider commands, for
example by detecting the position of the throttle grip. The system also
processes information from the brake system and decides whether energy
should be recuperated and how much recuperation torque is to be applied to
the rear wheel if required.

2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport vs Mercedes-Benz E350 vs BMW 535i race track review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Lexus GS 350 F is taking direct aim
at both the new Mercedes-Benz E350 and the new BMW 535i. We recently had a
chance to drive all three cars on the race track in Las Vegas to compare
how well the newest and perhaps sexiest Lexus does against these two very
well regarded and long established German luxury performance sedans. Check
out this first drive review of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F as we test all
three cars head to head.

2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the all new 2013 Lexus GS350 F-Sport. Quite the impressive
redesign from the previous model packed with new styling, luxury and great
build quality. The F-sport package is Lexus' answer to the BMW M-sport
package and features altered body styling, a sporty interior and
performance upgrades. While the exterior is quite unique, the interior
takes the best from BMW's center stack design by incorporating a 12.3"
multimedia interface with a unique controller in the center console.
There's lots and lots of tech demos towards the middle for those gadget
minded people, took a while to explain. I highly recommend checking it out
in person, as there's many trim levels and options to suit your needs as I
showed towards the end of the video. I, personally, am looking forward to
seeing the rest of the lexus fleet adapt to this new generation styling.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013
Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two
cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they
both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch,
and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the
Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and
yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something
year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is
possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as
we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so
similar to each other.
2013 Subaru BRZ Limited In Depth Tour, Engine Sound, Exterior and Interior

look at the car. Some specs that I didn't mention in the video that you
might be interested in:
0-60: 6.4 seconds
1/4 Mile Time: 14.9 sec @ 95.5 mph.
MPG: 22 city/30 highway for the manual, 25 city/34 highway for the
automatic due to taller gear ratios.

2015 Lexus NX 200t and NX 300h Detailed Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB

While Land Rover arguably invented the concept of a luxury SUV with their
first Range Rover, the 1998 Lexus RX is the vehicle that's had the single
biggest impact on the luxury industry. Initially derided by the press as a
lifted Camry with delusions of grandeur, calling the RX a run away sales
success would be an understatement. Lexus' original crossover now accounts
for over a third of the brand's total volume in America and holds the crown
as the best selling luxury vehicle on our shores. Trouble is, the RX has
grown over time and is now a half-step too big for European tastes. In the
hopes of dominating a third of Lexus brand sales in Europe, Lexus engineers
went back to the drawing board and created s little brother for the RX: the
2015 Lexus NX.
The right-sized Lexus crossover is, as you'd expect, almost exactly the
same size as the Audi Q5, Volvo XC60, BMW X3 and Acura RDX. That puts the
NX slightly ahead of the Mercedes GLK, four inches ahead of the 2015
Lincoln MKC and a full foot longer than the Range Rover Evoque. With 6.9
inches of ground clearance the NX should be just as dirt-road capable as
the average luxury soft-roader and interestingly Lexus bothers to publish
approach and departure angles. In case you're now wondering, approach is
28.7 degrees in 200t and 300h trim and 16.8 deg in the F-Sport because of
the flatter front end. Departure remains 24 degrees on all models.
Before you ask, the NX isn't a shrunken RX and it isn't a luxury RAV-4
either. Lexus claims that 90% of the parts are unique to the NX and those
that are shared are primarily related to the optional hybrid system. Thanks
to the clean sheet design, the NX is the first Lexus that looks comfortable
in the new corporate uniform.While other Lexus models (namely the LS) wear
the "spindle" grille surprisingly well, other aspects of the new design
language haven't translated well to the luxury brand's utility vehicles.
The "Nike swoosh" LED daytime running lamp modules that look oddly
out-of-place on the IS sedan actually work on the NX and I found myself
wondering why. I think the answer can be found in the headlamp module which
is much sleeker than in other Lexus models thanks to standard LED low
beams. Overall the combination allows for a more balanced front end.
From tip to tail there's no doubt that the NX's design won't be for
everyone, but I find that refreshing for a brand long known for
design-restraint. I wouldn't exactly call it the looks ground breaking or
polarizing, but this is as close as Lexus has even been. Although Lexus is
making an NX F-Sport Hybrid, Lexus has chosen to not offer the aggressive
grille and fuel-sipping engine combo in America.Under the hood beats the
first turbo engine Lexus has sold in
America: an all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder engine. While the
engineers spent most of their time telling members of the press how
fantastic their turbo design is, I was
more intrigued that this seems to be the first non-hybrid drivetrain that
can switch between an Otto and an Atkinson cycle. (Mazda tells me they do
not consider the SkyAcitv design an Atkinson cycle.) The technology behind
this is a new variable valve timing system that can adjust the intake and
Exhaust cam timing independently
allowing for a late intake valve closure when efficiency rather than torque
is required. Also on the trivia list is an air-to-water Intercooler instead of a more typical
air-to-air unit. The result is 235 horsepower from 4,800-5,600
RPM and 258 lb-ft from 1,650-4,000 RPM.
Rather than borrowing the 8-speed automatic used in the RX350 F-Sport (and
the XC60), Lexus chose to refresh an existing 6-speed auto and tweak it for
the turbo engine's low-end torque. The
engineer I spoke with claimed that the rationale behind the missing gears
was that "an 8-speed automatic isn't as much fun with paddle shifters."
Make of that what you will.
