Hybrid Diesel Cars http://hybriddieselcars.info Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:08:50 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 RLX Hybrid Introduced By Acura http://hybriddieselcars.info/2014-rlx-hybrid/ http://hybriddieselcars.info/2014-rlx-hybrid/#comments Tue, 10 Dec 2013 12:08:50 +0000 Anjy http://hybriddieselcars.info/?p=1209 The “most powerful Acura ever built” was manufactured by applying the hybrid treatment to the RLX luxury sedan (which was launched earlier this year) in order to improve mpg and power.

The all new hybrid version is based on the RLX’s 310-horsepower V6 which blends power output from 3 motors to manifest a 377-horsepower sedan that is all wheel drive along with a 7 speed dual clutch transmission.

Fans of performance will be elated with the 4 wheel steering and torque vectoring that essentially applies thrust that is reverse to the rear wheel during cornering, this slows the rate of speed to allow making crisper turns without regard to a heavy front of weight bias and suspension which makes for a comfortable ride.

The mileage is about 28 city, 30 combines and 32 highway but the RLX easily exceeds 31 highway, 24 combines and 20 city.
The price hasn’t been set yet though it will surely be modelled after the price of RLX. It is predicted that it will be in the range of $61,000 and above.

The RLX Hybrid’s V6 which has the capacity of 3.5 litres is a version of the hybrid system that will be used in the soon to be revealed NSX sports hybrid called the “SH-AWD”

2014 Range Rover Hybrid Drive Report http://hybriddieselcars.info/2014-range-rover-hybrid-drive-report/ http://hybriddieselcars.info/2014-range-rover-hybrid-drive-report/#comments Fri, 18 Oct 2013 08:30:11 +0000 Anjy http://hybriddieselcars.info/?p=1186 Land Rover has been everything in all these years but an environment friendly machine. The vehicle as such has been hugely successful since its inception but its engine and its tires have done enough damage to the nature around us.

But, Jaguar’s Land Rover is in a mood to change that image now as it plans to roll out its new Range Rover Hybrid, the prototype of which has been tested by few leading auto journalists.

2014 range rover hybrid

We have to say that the statistics look impressive. The hybrid is not powered by a great V8 or even a diesel powerplant. Instead in comes a smaller 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine with twin-turbocharger. The engine is a straight pick from TDV6, which is currently being sold in Europe.

To this engine setup, which is coupled with an 8 speed auto transmission system, Land Rover adds an electric motor along with a humble lithium-ion pack. The electric motor generates 47 hp. The resulting fuel economy is impressive as well with an average of 37 mpg. But obviously, you can’t compare it with the likes of Toyota Prius as the small engine in Range Rover Hybrid may give disproportionate fuel economy results while city driving.

The vehicle is not intended for U.S. market as of now and the automakers plans to release it only in Europe market.

Swiss to Develop Hybrid Engine http://hybriddieselcars.info/swiss-to-develop-hybrid-engine/ http://hybriddieselcars.info/swiss-to-develop-hybrid-engine/#comments Fri, 13 Sep 2013 07:44:07 +0000 Anjy http://hybriddieselcars.info/?p=1182 When combined with electric motor and battery, the most efficient engine can provide a hybrid vehicle equivalent of 80mpg. Researchers at Swiss Fed, Zurich have created the most efficient engine, which operates on a combined effect of diesel and natural gas. The combination of electric motor and battery make it a hybrid car that achieves 80MPGE.

According to researchers, this figure is better than 50mpg, which is the standard rate in most hybrid vehicles, like Toyota Prius. The one and only possible catch is finding both diesel and natural gas for refueling.

The advanced technology used by Swiss researchers offer an alternative to plug-in hybrid and electric cars for attaining mpg standards across the globe. In European market, the standard value of the vehicle to be reached is nearly 55mpgE by 2020. The US is also bringing somewhere around the same rating, which would be effective by 2025.

This number will make the vehicle manufacturer to sell their models that exceed those targets to offset fuel emissions from larger vehicles, including SUVs.

The games that dealerships play, especially with those who have low credit scores are despicable. Some dealerships cheat their customers as evidenced by the Joe Gibson debacle that hit the news a while back. Bait and switch tactics and other illegal tactics were practiced by this dealership. So, in order to help, here are four ideas to avoid getting ripped off with a car by either a dealer or individual.

four ideas to avoid getting ripped off with a car

Research the Vehicle You Want

Doing your research on the vehicle that you want can keep you from getting ripped off. Here’s the reason why doing your research is a lifesaver.

Use negotiation skills to get a fair mark up with the automobile that you have your eyes on. Realize that you will not pay what the dealership paid for the car.

Check Out The Automotive Dealer Before You Go

Before you go and purchase a car, a little detective work is needed. Take the time to check out the particular dealership and see if there are complaints against it. This can be done by the BBB or other authorities.Even with this,you will need to check out the auto loan refinance companies Massachusetts if you are trying to get a car refinanced. If you hear of any complaints, consider whether or not you would want to do business with this entity. If there are serious complaints, do the right thing and go to a different dealer.

Know The Blue Book Value of Your Trade In

Here is where people get ripped off the most. Before you go into any dealership or deal with any individual, you need to know what the true trade in value of your automobile is. Consult a Kelly Blue Book for your car’s model year and make. That will give you the true trade in value. If they do not want to give you what the car is worth, and it is in great condition, go elsewhere. You have the right to say ‘NO’ to any dealership or individual

Talk To A Professional Broker for Cars

These people can cut the bull that the dealer or individual is spouting and get to the heart of the matter quickly as well as get to the bottom line. Brokers like these do charge for their services and most of the time they only deal with dealerships. But utilizing their services will be a money saver as well as time saver. They know all the ins and outs of dealing with dealerships and can get their clients the best car for the money. Their years of experience will get you a great car and not some lemon waiting to be foisted on you unknowingly.

These tips, if followed can help you immensely to get the car you want, at a price that you want without all the bullying that usually goes on at times in a dealership. Dealers think that they control the game of car selling, but with the utilization of these tips, you will be the one in control and will get what you need for a car without getting ripped off.

4 Things That You Should Know Before Getting the Paint Job Done On Your Car http://hybriddieselcars.info/4-things-that-you-should-know-before-getting-the-paint-job-done-on-your-car/ http://hybriddieselcars.info/4-things-that-you-should-know-before-getting-the-paint-job-done-on-your-car/#comments Mon, 08 Apr 2013 10:53:49 +0000 Anjy http://hybriddieselcars.info/?p=1123 People decide to paint cars quite often, so that they look good as new again. It is always a great feeling to drive cars when they are spotless. You can have multiple coatings of paint on your car, so that its appearance becomes bright and shiny.

You will need to ensure that you choose the right type of color, since paint jobs can be quite expensive. You wouldn’t want to regret choosing the wrong color in a few weeks after getting it painted.

paint job done on your car

People go for painting due to a number of reasons, and some of the common reasons are as listed below:

• To give a new and attractive look to the car
• To hide dent marks on the car due to any accident
• To hide wear and tear marks due to long usage
• As a part of the maintenance of the car after a certain period

Based on the purpose of painting, you need to choose the quality of the paint. Say if you are planning to sell your vehicle, then you could decide to go for a cheaper paint job. There are many different varieties available in the market, and you can pick the based on your liking, needs, and budgets.

The paint that you apply on the surface of the car must remain intact for a long time. In addition to that it must also meet various other requirements of your vehicle.

Now, let us look into a few of the qualities that you must look for while selecting the paint for your automobile.

Price

You must select a paint based on the present condition of your car. You must not choose an expensive one to coat your old vehicle, which you have already used for sufficient number of years. In case, your automobile is not too old then it makes sense to go with a costly paint to spice up its looks. However, at the same time you should not compromise on the quality. Whatever you select must be a cost-effective bet, so that you get the best value for your money. While selecting the color you must consider the original shade; otherwise after a few months, your car might look a little weird.

You Must Check the Adhesive Quality of the Paint

While selecting the color coat you must consult an expert and make sure that when you apply the paint it must hold properly onto the surface of your vehicle. If you want to run your car for a long time then this is one of the important points to be considered. If you use low quality paint then within a short period of time your auto will give an older appearance, which will defeat the very purpose of painting your car.

Choose Environment-Friendly Paint

When you select the paint, you must make sure that it does not produce any adverse effect on the environment. You need to consult some expert in order to know about this. You must choose a coating from a well-known brand, which are usually environmentally friendly.

Durability

You must ensure that the paint is durable enough to last for a few years. It must remain in the same condition in all types of weather. Also, it should not get washed away after you send your vehicle for servicing.

An auto painting job is complicated and quite a huge job. If it is not done in the right way, it can lead to a series of problems. Therefore, you can get it done professionally.
