The French brought to Paris concept Renault Eolab

The current Paris Motor Show 2014 promises to be one of the most “green” in history. On the stands to witness the event will be a huge number of different environmentally friendly cars. Amid all this variety deserves attention Renault Eolab. Representatives of the French company says that a concept version of the model consumes no more than a liter of fuel per 100 kilometers!
The movement results in a prototype hybrid propulsion system. It includes a three-cylinder gasoline engine with 75 hp (95 Nm), 68-horsepower electric motor with lithium-yonnoy battery and three-stage mission. Pure electric Renault Eolab Concept is able to overcome 60 km.
Installing the concept can operate in one of two modes: weekday and weekend. The first is ideal for small regular trips (eg from home to work and back), the movement occurs primarily on electric traction and top speed in this case is limited to 60 km/h.
If the owner has gathered in a long trip, you need to activate the weekend. In this case, it will exploit the potential of both gasoline and electric motor, and maksilka increase to 120 km/h.
Through the use of ultra-light materials to create the car body mass Reno Eolab is only 955 kg. Thus, the concept of the roof is made of magnesium, hood and doors – made of thermoplastic and rear racks – made of aluminum, the latter is used when creating elements of the chassis.
Aerodynamics Renault Eolab now considered one of the best in the world. Thus, the drag coefficient of the prototype is only 0.235, while the best indicator of a stock car owned by Mercedes-Benz CLA (0.23). To achieve this indicator engineers used several active aerodynamic elements. For example, the front splitter at speeds above 70 km/h, slightly lowered, thereby restricting air flow under the car.
Brakes concept car developed jointly with specialists from Continental. The unique feature of Renault Eolab brakes is that the absence of pressure on the pedal pad does not touch the surface of the brake disc.Control takes over the electronics.
Prototype systems analyze the situation on the road and, if necessary, automatically pushes pads are closer to the brake discs. Thus, Renault was able to further improve the fuel efficiency of the prototype, and in the service life of pads this innovation had a positive effect.
Control functions of the car (his audio system, climate control, etc.) Can be a 11-inch touch screen. On it is displayed and a picture with a rear view camera, which replaces the traditional salon mirror.
When the production version is worth waiting for Renault Eolab? To answer this question the French find it difficult, however, if the prototype-aki will be available, it is sure to become a direct competitor of air hybrids PSA Peugeot Citroen.
