the Screw to be tightened just so quiet about the vans. Their diesel engines are looked at, and the requirements for their udstødningsrøg is becoming stronger.
It can, in the long term make life miserable for those who do not have the funds to buy a new van. But now, the austrian teknologiproducent Magna made a system, that might be the solution to varebilernes green hardship in Europe's forureningsplagede cities.
It's called 'etelligentDrive' and consists of a powered rear axle complete with a lithium-ion battery, which effectively turns a traditional van to a pluginhybrid.
the System is initially developed for the passenger car, but Magna have since upgraded to vans with a version that is a little more heavy duty.
the Condition to adapt a 'etelligentDrive'system in an existing van is, in principle, just that it is forhjulstrukket, so that the two drive shafts can operate separately.
the Battery is according to the austrian manufacturer large enough to allow pure electric driving at up to 50 kilometers.
It is funny enough the same range that has existed on virtually all pluginhybrider ago Diamonds, the King was kid – but regardless of the scope, the system is interesting.
When varebilen've got the electric rear axle installed, will it be able to run solely on the electric motor and, in cooperation with the vehicle's diesel engine, so it actually works as a regular hybrid.
the electric Motor can be scaled to effects from 50 to 250 kW, it will say from 70 to 340 horsepower. So you can decide for yourself whether you will have a very quick van or long range.
The only drawback of the system is immediately, to the, as mentioned, is reserved for certified vans. But Magna has other options to baghjulstrækkerne.
The austrian manufacturer has a number of other modulprodukter that can provide electric propulsion in the same ballgame as ’etelligentDrive’system.
For example, there is a Getrag-gearbox with integrated electric motor in the warehouse.
By changing the existing gearbox on a baghjulstrukket van, you can get genuine hybriddrift on the rear axle alone and on the way so get the opportunity to run green in the towns or a little further on the gas mileage at all.
