Vad driver Jean-Marc Gales: Bilarna i Lotus VD

Lotus vd som skruvas tidigare även med pappa på bilar och fortsätter i dag nästan varje dag en prototyp. Ensam skulle hellre köpa begagnat som en ny bil.

21/04/2017 Andreas HauptWie är din privata samling?

För familjen Jag kör en Mercedes E 420 CDI, den 2009 år. Jag har fått behövde mig bilen för ett test i tidningen. Med 730 Nm du vet vad du har. När en annan bil jag äger en begagnad W124 cabriolet, en 300, byggd 1991. men jag antar att bara i bra väder. Vad kommer att överraska folk: Jag har en Porsche när jag fortfarande arbetar 911 Turbo 997, den jag köpte sex år sedan i Bryssel, men jag är inte kört i tre år. Bilen var då fem år gammal. Porsche är lätt trimmad till 550 hk.

Gillar du tuning?

Jag skulle säga att anpassning är mitt fall redan. Våra kunder Lotus går också mer och mer i den riktningen. Porsche har kol bromsar, är svart på utsidan och insidan fullt utrustade med beige läder.

Varför få en begagnad bil?

Det är lite ekonomiskt tänkande, eftersom vissa av dessa bilar har redan som en ny bil under de första åren en betydande förlust i värde. Efter tio år av sitt värde uppsättningar sedan igen. Det är också lite mål som jag följer med Lotus: att bilarna är klassiker. Mina bilar är roliga, de är klassiska, prestanda är positiv: vad mer kan man önska? Det finns ingen anledning att sälja det, även om jag flyttar sällsynta. Under veckan handlar det om Lotus.

Med vad du kommer att fungera?

Mina tekniker arbetar på många projekt. Jag kör en vidareutveckling, en prototyp Lotus varje kväll. Detta kan vara en förändring för överföring eller på aerodynamik, eller till fjädrar och dämpare. Om vädret tillåter, vänder jag mig på kvällen ett par varv på vår banan innan jag går hem. När jag är hemma, jag ger mina ingenjörer i slutet av återkopplings kvällen. bäst kan bedöma om en bil är välbalanserad när understyrning där, och när överstyrs det på de smala, slingrande och gropiga brittiska vägar.

prototyperna bär en Tarnfolie?

Ibland även när det gäller förändringar i kroppen. Om det bara påverkar landningsstället, så gör det inte. bilarna faller sent på kvällen inte med Tarnfolie riktigt på. Det finns mycket få bilder med en lotusblomma i Tarnfolie.

Vad var din första bil?

Det var en Fiat 127 cc min far med 903 förskjutning och 47 hk. Han hade 70.000 kilometer på det och jag körde till 110.000 kilometer. Jag var ständigt med bil i rött. Det enda som brytt mig var att bilen hade ingen varvräknare. Men jag visste när jag var i den röda. Eftersom jag kände när jag med vilken hastighet 6500 / min var vad växel. Eftersom du visste när bättre över och när det inte. Vi hemma var alltid två eller tre bilar och har skruvas ihop efter skolan till dem.

Skruv att titta på?

Jag hade slutet av 1990, början av 2000 vissa engelska bilar. Där var alltid brutna något. Därför men du älskar dem. Jag hade två Jaguar XJ-S, en sexcylindrig, en tolvcylindrig. Du har en massa kärlek och ömhet behövs. Idag, det dags att skruva mig saknas. När vi är tillbaka i lugna vatten på Lotus, jag gör det igen med en Lotus.

Din första kontakt med Lotus?

Min far tog mig 1974 i en Lotus showroom. Eliten har imponerat på mig så djupt med fyrcylindriga, 160 hk och dubbla kamaxel Lotus byggas. Det var en mycket lätt bil, men fortfarande mycket säker. 1112 kg och plats för fyra personer, plus en vacker form. Bilen var faktiskt hans tid med 30 år framåt. Idag finns det återigen exakt samma ämnen: nedskärningar, mindre motorer, effektivitet och säkerhet. Jag hade då tagit mig katalogen och det jag har idag. På den tiden, min entusiasm för Lotus startade. Det har inneburit att jag har blivit en maskiningenjör.

Och vad du är intresserad av?

Söker en Lotus Excel. Även om detta inte är den mest populära Lotus, men jag gillar honom väldigt mycket. Eftersom han är tillförlitlig, och enligt min mening har en vacker form. Jag har några kopior i ögat. Om jag får en Lotus prototyper natten, jag skulle komma att arbeta i Excel.

De gillar också passagerare?

Jag är en dålig passagerare. Bara när jag är trött. Då ska jag låta mig köra. Eftersom det är annars farligt. Jag gillar att köra själv, uppmärksamma varje ljud. Tur att jag har en bra öra och ta varje kritan sant. Faktiskt, jag ge skatten endast på banan från dig. Och medan skillnaderna mellan en bra förare och en professionell kommer att göras medvetna om. Den snabbaste erfarenhet som jag hade i Hockenheim Bernd Schneider i en DTM Mercedes. Han berättade senare att han gav 99 procent gas.

Din favorit väg?

Min personliga favorit spår mellan Monaco och Genua och löper längs sjön. Eftersom du nästan kan stoppa varje fem kilometer, njuta av en mycket god cappuccino. Den på en solig dag i en sportbil: Det finns inte mycket som kan slå det.

Mercedes X-Class Pickup Study (2016): Mercedes makes the Nissan Navara beautiful

Mercedes shows the X-Class Concept a preview of the new pickup that is the end of 2017 when Mercedes X-Class on the market. We sat in there already and tell you what makes him a Mercedes. For he shares with the Nissan Navara, the technical basis and production.

25/10/2016 Andreas Of, Holger Wittich, Torsten Seibt 4 comments Powered by

The complete Neuvorstellung with all the facts about the X-class concept can be found below.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Live from Stockholm: First Impressions of the world premiere of the X class. 12 points, which are noticed.

  1. Mercedes has learned from the Citan. Rebadging it is difficult to attest here. Unique appearance, great interiors on car level, according Navara sees there rather little off.
  2. The front of the "street version" of the X-class concept is very then from what you can imagine in 2017 the production car.
  3. A right step in that - the chassis was completely redeveloped and coordinated - at least according to a statement of the technicians. The Nissan Navara is no precedent in this detail.
  4. The X-Class will come exclusively with coil springs at the rear axle, even in the heavy-duty versions. Brave, but exciting.
  5. With the V6 diesel and permanent all-wheel drive in the top version of the X-Class, the new VW Amarok lose its unique selling point. Whether they like it to be in Wolfsburg?
  6. The decision to take over the four-cylinder engine of Renault-Nissan in the basic version is correct. The engine matches a pickup for tangible user has properly Punch and runs comfortably.
  7. The street version will love many. With AMG package even more. Low-profile tires on a pickup are socially acceptable.
  8. Most of it word of the evening at the premiere: Premium. Second Meistes: Lifestyle. For the Chronicle: A pickup truck.
  9. Love designer that you can find the round air vents great - ok. But a two-double battery of it in the middle of the fitting boards, plus the patch display of the multimedia system behind it, um, no.
  10. Love designer grille Offroad variant makes me associations with the current Unimog, well done!
  11. Dear designer, you have in all this effort really no more budget had to mount a real winch to the off-road version?
  12. To screw love designers, great that you have resisted the temptation fashionable Beadlock wheels to the ground-X class. And instead a wheel and tire combination, the real hardcore off-roader would also choose: 35x11,5 R16. Great!

Cooperation assured lately at Mercedes-connoisseurs rather frown. As 2012 came Citan, Mercedes had to rework the car to a moderate result in the Euro NCAP crash test. Appearance, comfort and quality of borrowed Renault model was not convinced at first. But: The 1.5-liter diesel from the cooperation with Renault Nissan sells.

Mercedes pickup in cooperation with Nissan

The sale, it is also the next cooperation project: Mercedes sees in the market for one-ton pickups growth opportunities and uses the pickup 80 years experience of the cooperation partner Nissan for its own model to look more for Mercedes as the Citan. What's a little easier, because the pickup based on a leadframe and because changes to the body are easily possible.

Mercedes X-Class Photo: Mercedes
Second variant of the study: noble, white and with red light strip on the rear.

The front of the Mercedes X-Class actually does not look more like Nissan. Cleverly conceal the designer to Kai Siebert that the double cabin looks almost exactly like the Japanese counterpart. Even the rear doors of the study are very similar to the standard model of Nissan. The front doors, however, are new. designed quite differently and far issued: The fenders. When Sit down falls on: The driver has complete bonnet in view - typical pickup up.

Four- and six-cylinder, four-wheel and locks

What is under the hood of the Mercedes X-Class, Mercedes wants to not say more than that there will be four and six cylinder engines with four-wheel drive. Whether the top engine, a V6 diesel with permanent all-wheel drive from Mercedes or Nissan comes? Plus, there's no official statement. Rear axle and the central barrier after all, promise a decent area of ​​competence.

The cockpit of the study shows with steering wheel and infotainment brand identity.

Of course, the study is not yet on production status, which shows, among other things, the lack of fuel filler flap. The milled from solid aluminum trim on the center console so rather not come. Other the other hand, will go into production: Mercedes promises an infotainment system as we know it from about the C or V class. As there the display sits on the dashboard and the rotary pushbutton controller on the center console. This has the Nissan Navara course not. The dashboard is based more on the cars, the center console is less powerful than usual pickups. The handbrake on the center console, however, will also get the production car. From G, except 190 and SLK first time, a rather rare component of a Mercedes.

Not typical for a pickup, but Mercedes standards: driver assistance systems and networking. Cameras, radar and ultrasonic sensors will in part be standard. The plan is to also offer Connect-me services, can be displayed with which, for example, the location of the pickup on the smartphone. So far, the competence of pickups limited here often reversing beepers and camera. Because Mercedes offers a wide range of customers, the X class can be configured from robust to smart and customized with numerous factory accessories.

Mercedes X-Class with 3.5 tonnes trailer load

Tangible and for the clientele with a heavy load a key selling point: The pickup is good zuladen 1.1 tonnes and may draw up to 3.5-ton trailer. This corresponds approximately to what the Nissan can.

Their building is then leased to the e.Go Mobile AG. Overall, the production site covers 16,000 Quardatmeter should requested there annually 10,000 vehicles produced. Now is doubled (see interview).

Interview with e.Go Life CEO Günther Schuh

Günther Schuh teaches production engineering at the RWTH Aachen, the leading engineering forged in Germany. He is also head of the e.Go mobile AG, its now the second car company.

What makes the e.Go so cheap?

Shoe: This starts with the basic concept. We wanted to build a city car. So meet around 100 km range and low speeds. Therefore, starter motors that accelerate the e.GO so fast to pace 50 rich as any other car also and create a maximum of 100 km / h. Compared to the electric motor in the i3 they are very cheap. At the same time also so economical that we make do with a small battery - which in turn saves weight. The frame consists of simple square aluminum profiles. And we have omitted anything that you do not need. This is true not only for the car itself. Even in production, we are breaking new ground.

What do you do differently than a car manufacturer?

Shoe: We do not, for example, a press shop, which alone represents an investment of around 120 million euros. Our body produces a luggage manufacturer, uses the highest quality thermoplastic materials. These are more elastic than metal, and even a digest Parkrempler. And they allow us to dispense with the expensive paint line.

Thermoplastic reminiscent of the Trabant ...

Shoe: see today's thermoplastic parts incredibly well. A car manufacturer must apply five clear coat layers to achieve our brilliance. And since the dyed parts are screwed or glued, also a repair is much easier and cheaper.

It is everywhere, customers are not ready for electric cars.

Shoe: The main misconception is that the automakers believe the market take electric cars, for example, due to lack of coverage is not on, the price does not lie. Since I am a very different opinion: It is at the price. Many users would rather accept a limited range as a high price. If I want to offer a range-limited car, then just the price must be right!

Do you want to annoy the auto industry?

Shoe: No, we are not alls. But let's show how you can build a low-priced electric car that can afford a private customer. We hope the contrary, that producers assume our ideas.

Who are the sponsors for the e.Go project?

Shoe: Of course, we have capital from the sale of StreetScooter to the post office. We also have strategic investors from the automotive industry - but no automaker. While these also wanted to join us, but there would be a danger to us too great that they want to influence us.

And as the e.Go comes so far?

Shoe: The response has been overwhelming: 814 orders from private clients in two and a half months, more than we expected. This shows that even private clients access to if the price is right. There are also cities, government agencies, nursing services and logistics experts who are interested in the car. Police in Aachen will test some cars in the administrative area, perhaps the Bundeswehr. The demand of fleet customers is also much larger than expected. We have already sold the planned start of production in 2018 and are now trying to increase the capacity to 1,800 cars.

What is the capacity your factory?

Shoe: We had originally planned for 2019, the first full year of production, the construction of 10,000 cars. Now we consider the introduction of a second layer before in production. We admit to the end of May 2019 and then come to an annual output of 20,000 cars.
