[YesAuto] A few days ago, Stefanie Sun posted a Weibo requesting recommendation for car buying, saying that she wanted to choose a pure electric/hybrid car. For a while, many netizens gave their recommendations, most of them It is Tesla, but Tesla is not actually sold in Singapore. Therefore, in this article, we will recommend a few cars tailored to Sun Yanzi based on her personal situation.
Stefanie is already the mother of two children, a family of four travels, a car with more space is indispensable. Combined with her pure electric or hybrid car selection appeal, it can not help but remind people of the Toyota Prius.
As the world's first hybrid vehicle to achieve mass production, the Prius has excellent performance in terms of technology and reliability in daily use. The Prius came out in 1997 and has now launched its fourth-generation model.
In order to enrich the product line, Toyota launched the smaller Prius C and the larger Prius V in 2011. The latter models sold in different markets are also called Prius + or Prius α, and Singapore is Prius +.
The Prius+ is equipped with an in-line four-cylinder 1.8L gasoline engine and a 60-kilowatt drive motor. Although the maximum power of 136 horsepower and the maximum torque of 142 N·m do not seem to be eye-catching, the NEDC tested comprehensive operating conditions 4.1L/100km and high-speed operating conditions 3.8L/100km fuel consumption is really good!
According to the information on the official website of Toyota Motor Singapore, the guide price of Prius+ is 124,988 Singapore dollars, which is equivalent to about 645,000 yuan. The price is not cheap, but for Stefanie Sun, it should be sprinkled with water~
Although as a mother of two children, Stefanie Sun may also have a young mentality of chasing the wind, so I recommend a hybrid sports car to Stefanie Sun. There are not many options for such models in the Singapore market. Honda NSX (same as domestic Acura NSX) is a good choice.
After the previous generation of NSX was discontinued in 2005, it finally returned with a high profile in 2016. The styling of the new generation of NSX was completed by the female designer Michel Christine, who was involved in supercar design for the first time. Compared with the original NSX, its styling is more complicated and has a strong sense of technology.
Many people believe that carbon fiber materials should be used extensively in supercars, and even single-fiber cockpits are almost the standard for measuring supercars. However, NSX still follows the tradition of the first-generation car using aluminum body, but the whole car has “weight”. Still up to 1725kg.
What is going on here? The first-generation NSX used a naturally aspirated V6 engine, while the new NSX not only increased the displacement to 3.5L, but was also equipped with a twin turbocharger. The soaring “weight” was due to the addition of three electric motors in the new NSX.
3.5L V6 twin-turbocharged engine + three electric motors, this hybrid system has a combined power of 573 horsepower and a maximum torque of 645 N·m. The engine and coaxial motor drive the rear wheels, while the front wheels are powered by two electric motors, allowing the NSX to achieve a mid-mounted four-wheel drive layout.
The price of Honda NSX in Singapore is 929,000 Singapore dollars, or about 4.786 million yuan, while the official domestic Acura NSX is 2.89 million yuan. The high price inevitably makes this car very niche. I wonder if it is too high-profile for the family-oriented Stefanie Sun?
What is the picture of buying an electric car? Technology, coolness, driving pleasure… practicality is the most important thing! So I recommend this car: Nissan SERENA E-POWER. This car is an extended-range electric car developed by Nissan SERENA. The engine is only used to generate electricity, and the wheels are driven purely by electric motors. This technology has a very long history. Tanks in World War I and World War II have been used. Many heavy machinery such as diesel locomotives and mining vehicles are also driven by this type of drive. The technology is reliable, the most critical point, and there is no mileage anxiety.
Nissan SERENA is a typical household MPV, and it is now the fifth-generation model of the family. Its length, width and height are 4770mm, 1740mm and 1865mm respectively, and the wheelbase is 2860mm. The size is slightly smaller than the Honda Odyssey, so you should have an intuitive impression.
The exterior interior is not very luxurious, and the design and materials are simple. Of course, this is in line with the pragmatic style common to Japanese cars. Space is its strong point. The 223 seat layout is very flexible, and space is certainly not a problem. Every row can be taken care of, and the comfort is satisfactory. In addition, it also uses the side sliding doors necessary for MPV.
In terms of power, this car is equipped with an electric motor power of 136 horsepower (100 kilowatts) and a torque of 320 Nm. The generator responsible for generating electricity is a 1.2L three-cylinder engine with a maximum power of 84 horsepower (6000rpm) and a maximum torque of 103 N·m (3200-5200rpm). The official comprehensive fuel consumption score is 3.8L/100km, which is more than two liters lower than the 2.0L model.
In actual driving, this car generally feels like an ordinary family car, gentle and peaceful. Because it is an electric motor, the power response is fast, but after all, the power reserve is there, and the effect of continuous acceleration is average. The suspension is also softly tuned to resolve the impact very well, and everything serves comfort. The only thing that is not satisfactory is that the gasoline engine is slightly noisy, and there is room for improvement in noise reduction.
In general, this car is a large space and fuel-efficient MPV that is very suitable for home use. The official website shows that its starting guide price in the local area is 134,800 Singapore dollars, which is about 694,000 yuan. It is good to buy a vegetable.
If Stefanie Sun is willing to wait for a while, you can also consider the upcoming Audi e-tron. e-tron is the first pure electric SUV model of the Audi brand, which is independent of the previous Q series in terms of name.
Not only the name, but the appearance of the Audi e-tron has gotten rid of the Q family's “moll” face. The large-area closed net, the sharp headlights, and the polygonal vents make Audi e-tron look at it. Going up is very aggressive.
Audi e-tron battery capacity is 95kWh (available 83.6kWh). Under the car home evaluation system, its inter-city high-speed working condition has a cruising range of 347km, and city low-speed working conditions have a cruising range of 442km, which can let Xiaotian say goodbye to mileage anxiety.
The comprehensive maximum power of the e-tron power system is 360Ps, the maximum torque is 561N·m, the maximum power of boost mode is 426Ps, and the maximum torque is 664N·m. The official 0-100km/h acceleration is 5.7s, and the performance is not unbelievable.
The interior of e-tron adopts Audi's new design language, maintaining the industry's leading level in terms of technology. At the same time, the 2928mm wheelbase also guarantees its rear seat space, and the abundant storage space enhances the convenience of family travel.
Jaguar's first pure electric SUV I-PACE is worthy of Sun Yanzi's consideration. The car is based on the eDM electric vehicle modular platform and is positioned as a medium-sized SUV. I-PACE has inherited the classic avant-garde shape, the iconic big mouth takes care of the design aesthetics, and the greater role is to optimize aerodynamics.
The grille has an active opening and closing function, and there is an opening at the top to further increase the downforce of the front of the car. The drag coefficient of I-PACE is 0.29Cd, which is ideal for SUVs. The smaller body proportion and the wheels closer to the four corners of the body give it a sporty atmosphere.
The rear of the car is somewhat similar to the F-TYPE of the Jaguar sports car, but the rear line of the I-PACE is quickly cut from the very inclined C-pillar. This bold design reflects its avant-garde feeling, without the bloated rear. The SUV feels a bit more cross-border.
The interior takes into account both practicality and design. It adopts a 10-inch + 5-inch dual-screen central control area, and uses advanced materials and workmanship to create a sense of luxury, and the sense of technology is not weak. In terms of power, Jaguar I-PACE is equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous motor at the front and rear, with a total motor power of 400Ps and a maximum torque of 696N•m.
I-PACE’s 0-100km/h acceleration time is 4.8 seconds, adopts an electric four-wheel drive structure, front and rear weight distribution is 50:50, is equipped with an 81kWh battery pack, and has a cruising range of 470km. The price of the car in Singapore is 354,999 Singapore dollars, which is about 1.8288 million yuan.
In order to keep up with the development of the big era, the traditional sports car manufacturer Porsche also launched their first pure electric sports car-Taycan this year. The performance of the car is still outstanding and still very Porsche.
Porsche currently has three configuration models for Taycan, the basic version is 4S, and there are two different performance versions of Turbo and Turbo S. The corresponding maximum powers of the three cars are 390kW, 500kW and 560kW respectively.
The theoretical cruising range of the Porsche Taycan can reach more than 430km. Actually, the cruising range will not be less than 300km according to different environment.
In terms of performance, the 0-100km/h acceleration time of the three configuration models is 4.0 seconds, 3.2 seconds and 2.8 seconds respectively. The vehicle has three kinetic energy recovery modes, and will not feel drag when closing the accelerator.
Taycan is a four-door electric sports car with a driving experience comparable to that of 911. Finally, Taycan also has a maximum voltage system of 800V, and the maximum charging power can reach 270kW.
The BMW i brand is a future-oriented new energy brand released by BMW in 2011. The i3 model has a good interpretation of the brand concept. It is a pure electric model that responds to the challenges of modern travel and is full of technology.
The body structure of the BMW i3 adopts a new manufacturing concept, which includes two separate parts, Life and Drive. Drive represents an aluminum chassis, and Life represents a passenger compartment structure. It uses high-strength and lightweight carbon fiber. The material not only reduces the weight of the vehicle, but also improves the handling performance of the vehicle. In order to actively respond to environmental pollution, many materials of BMW i3 are also manufactured from renewable resources.
The BMW i3 motor has 170 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque, and can accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in 7.3 seconds. The BMW i3s model can reach 6.9 seconds and the maximum speed can reach 160km/h. With the help of a household charging pile system, the battery can be charged to 80% in 3 hours. If a public DC charging pile is used, the vehicle can be charged to 80% in 45 minutes, and the cruising range can reach 260km when fully charged.
The shape of the MPV allows the BMW i3 to make full use of the internal space. The front and rear doors design not only demonstrates the distinctive concept, but also provides sufficient convenience for the passengers getting on and off the car. The body length of only four meters also allows The car travels easily in the city. The price of this car in China is about 300,000 yuan, and in Singapore it is as high as 200,000…US dollars, but for the high-net-worth celebrity group, it is just like and dislike.
Above we recommended 7 new energy models for Stefanie Sun. Some netizens may say why there is no Chinese brand? This is because the main consideration is that the car is purchased in Singapore, and the domestically-made models are not sold locally.
