Hype Innovation: Audi Mobility e-gas Project

on 05.13.11 | Andrew Beckford No

Audi has been about for a long time, even they teamed up with Stark.  Their e-tron have been getting a lot of lately as have other cars but Audi is looking to things a step further by green ways to generate to charge their e-tron Audi refers to this as Balanced Mobility  .  Some mobility methods utilize windpower to run turbines and electricity for the public grid.

  is also thinking of using same wind power to run machines to create hydrogen and methane.  The latter of which can be with internal combustion and burn much cleaner traditional gasoline.  It is pretty to see Audi taking the lead on cool looking but responsible for the future.

  Hopefully a powerful advanced suit of armor is in the as well.  I d so buy one of those..  Anyhow, out a short video all about the Mobility initiative below as as a press release.


Audi balanced mobility – The to CO2-neutral mobility

— launches an initiative for CO2-neutral

— Chairman of the Board of Rupert Stadler: “Ecology and in harmony: For this, we have to the correct balance in every of mobility.”

Audi wants to the lead in the automotive industry sustainable approaches to the use of natural Under the motto of “Audi mobility,” Audi is gearing its to pursue a major goal: CO2-neutral mobility. And the Audi project is a pivotal aspect of initiative. The brand thus in a milestone from which the industry and society can benefit.

will be unveiling the e-gas to the public for the first time in the Green Capital of 2011, on May 12 and 13.

balanced mobility refers to a approach which addresses aspect of the automotive value-added and provides new impulses for all gas and power in Germany. “Ecology and economy in that is the greatest challenge of the To attain this we must mobility completely into – with people and their new and with the environment. CO2-neutral is our goal,” says Audi Rupert Stadler.

He continues: “On the way to achieving this we are using clean power. We are climate-friendly fuels and forming a new for which our entire company That’s the objective of Audi mobility. ”

The e-gas project, after three years of research is now entering the practical is a cornerstone of this mission: is the world’s first automotive to set up an entire portfolio of sustainable of energy. Whereas some limit themselves to purchasing power from third the brand with the four is becoming directly involved in it. For this purpose, Audi to the construction of offshore North Sea turbines, which generate power that is then fed the public power grid.

wants to use green power to and also operate its electric-drive models in the future.

A production will use some of this electricity to manufacture hydrogen by of electrolysis. Hydrogen can be used in the as a source of energy for fuel-cell or, in an additional step, it can be used to methane. Such methane is at Audi as e-gas.

It is chemically to natural gas and can power combustion Starting in 2013, Audi begin series production of models whose engines – from TFSI units – be powered by e-gas.

Ulrich von an environmental scientist and the co-president of the Resources Panel, explicitly Audi’s initiative: “What I is eco-friendly, sustainable mobility. e-gas project, with its applicability, fits in extremely with this, and goes a way toward achieving CO2-neutral

In the medium term, Germany’s industry can benefit from the e-gas project. It provides an to the pressing question as to how green can be efficiently stored, irrespective of If there are strong sea winds, for then surplus power can be converted to e-gas and stored in the available energy-storage system: the gas network.

If necessary, this energy can from the gas network back to the grid at any time.

Bentley Supersports

Press Release:


The Continental Supersports is the fastest, powerful Bentley ever 630PS (621 bhp) mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 and a 204 mph (329 km/h) top speed.

The reaffirms Bentley s environmental with the launch of its first performance car.

It is the extreme Bentley, a muscular that delivers supercar and a highly focused driving

The Supersports is also the first capable of running on both (gasoline) and biofuel, pioneering the use of technology in the luxury sector. represents stage one of the company s to make its complete model compatible with renewable by 2012.

Available worldwide autumn 2009, the Continental will be FlexFuel compatible in the of markets from launch North American cars the capability by summer 2010, regulatory approval.

The Continental began as an ‘under the radar exploring the possibilities of weight on the Continental GT but with more and torque. A largely experimental crystallised over a period of 24 into an official new car programme, by the passion and enthusiasm of a small of Bentley engineers and designers.

The results are dramatic. With (621 bhp) and new ‘Quickshift that halves shift the Supersports sets new performance for Bentley. It accelerates from mph in 3.7 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.9 onto a top speed of 204 mph (329

Supercar performance is complemented by an of chassis enhancements including steering and suspension, utilising weight components, retuned and anti-roll bars.

Agility is sharpened by the 40:60 rear-biased split for the all-wheel drive a wider rear track, lightweight 20-inch alloy and a unique electronic stability

Carbon ceramic brakes are fitment, benefiting steering grip and ride comfort, saving weight. Overall, the team have achieved a reduction of 110 kg (243 lb) compared the Continental GT Speed.

For example, the increased power and of the W12 engine necessitated additional to the twin turbocharger intercoolers and system. Bentley s designers with a purposeful and dramatic that features large intake apertures and twin vents.

Similarly, new flared wings that accommodate the 50 mm (2 wider rear track are to emphasise the powerful stance of ultra-high performance coupe. The Supersports style combines the of the iconic Continental GT with a new and appearance that reflects its extreme character.

The Supersports is distinguished from its Continental stable mates by a unique steel finish to all exterior , including front grilles, bezels, window surrounds and A complex ‘Physical Vapour process is applied to all stainless components to give a lustrous and durable finish. A car industry this process is normally as a coating on industrial tools, and even hip replacement joints.

embracing the extreme spirit of the Bentley s interior designers created a unique ambience. The represents a dramatic re-interpretation of interior design in which fibre and AlcantaraTM not only a sporting and contemporary style but reduce weight.

The Supersports is a strict two-seater all-new lightweight sports with carbon fibre rear panels. In the rear the seats are replaced by a stowage with a carbon fibre retaining beam.

The new interior provides a showcase for the skills of s craftsmen and women at the company s in Crewe, England. Signature grade leather and brightware are by carbon fibre panels, traditional wood veneers.

The Supersports is capable of running on petrol and E85 biofuel or any combination of the E85 biofuel can offer a reduction of up to 70 per in CO2 emissions on a ‘well-to-wheel basis.

is a measurement of a fuel s net CO2 contribution to the not just tailpipe emissions. It is a way of how much CO2 a fuel emits its growth or extraction (well) to its or deployment (wheel). It includes distillation and transport of the fuel.

The supply system detects the ratio of the fuel in the tank and that power and torque constant regardless of the ratio of to biofuel. The result is seamless delivery in the Bentley tradition.

The name is inspired by the original 3-litre Supersports model in 1925, itself an evolution of the Speed. The lightweight, 85 bhp Supersports was the production Bentley to reach 100 mph and was renowned for the application of Le Mans-winning technology.

Commenting on the new Supersports Dr. Franz-Josef Paefgen, Bentley s and Chief Executive said:

The Supersports reflects the passion and of Bentley s engineers and designers. is the fastest, most extreme ever, dramatically styled to its supercar character. Importantly, it pioneers the use of FlexFuel technology in the sector.
