CeBIT Hannover 2014: Volkswagen Group presents visionary automotive functions

The focus of Group activities at the show booth in Hanover is on electric mobility, connectivity and piloted driving

The most fuel-efficient production car in the world, the Volkswagen XL1. The most fuel-efficient production car in the world, the Volkswagen XL1.

Volkswagen Group will appear at the CeBIT, the most important IT trade fair in the world (10 — 14 March 2014) with the brands of Audi, MAN, Porsche, Volkswagen, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Volkswagen Financial Services. On a total of 920 square metres, a wide variety of topics related to IT and the automotive future await trade fair visitors in Hall 2.

With the James 2025 model, Audi shows what piloted driving of the future could look like. The vehicle interior of a future Audi is set up in a simulation model. A compact display screen, which moves upwards in the driver’s field of vision a virtual cockpit replaces the analogue instruments.

A second display, a central monitor, is located in the top centre of the dashboard. As soon as the point is reached on the driving distance, at which the system permits piloted driving, the driver presses two buttons on the steering wheel rim, and the car takes on the driving task.

About 20 seconds before reaching the point at which the piloted driving ends, the dashboard returns to its original status. The display for the piloted driving disappears, the virtual cockpit moves out and shows the driver the countdown for him to take over.

Audi is supplementing its appearance at the CeBIT with the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron1, a plug-in hybrid car with a driving range of up to 50 kilometres.

With the TGX18.480 semi-trailer with XXL driver’s cab, MAN sets new benchmarks at the most important IT trade fair in the world. No other competitor in the international truck segment offers a comparable level of comfort. To make this happen, located in the driver’s cab is a mobile end device (iPad) upon which the MAN TeleMatics® app is displayed.

The dispatcher is not the only one to profit from the application in terms of fleet control, fleet management and logistics, the driver benefits as well. With the aid of the MAN TeleMatics® reports, the driver’s driving style can be optimally analysed and hence improvement potentials can be purposefully addressed.

The Panamera S E-Hybrid2, the first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class worldwide, takes centre stage in the Porsche appearance. With 416 hp (306 kW) system power, an acceleration in 5.5 seconds from standstill to a speed of 100 and a top speed of 270 km/h, it is a true full-blooded Porsche Gran Turismo.

Its special magic comes from its one-of-a-kind fuel and cost-efficiency and the possibility of driving considerable distances in all-electric mode: The NEDC fuel consumption of the Panamera S E-Hybrid is 3.1 l/100 km, which equates to CO2 emissions of just 71 g/km. The electric driving range of the Panamera S E-Hybrid is 36 kilometres in NEDC-based testing.

The networking of vehicle and driver via smartphone plays an important role in the Panamera S E-Hybrid, because it makes special functions such as external charging of the high-voltage battery more transparent. The driver can access and control key vehicle information via the smartphone app.

E-mobility functions are subdivided into four menu areas: charging status overview, driving range management, charging timer and optional remote control of the auxiliary climate control system.

The trade fair appearance of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand is also heavy with technological innovations: they include the most fuel-efficient production car in the world, the XL13, with fuel consumption of 0.9 l/100 km in NEDC testing.

Thanks to its plug-in hybrid system, the two-seater can also be driven for up to 50 kilometres locally in pure electric mode, i.e. with zero emissions at point of use. The XL1 is an automotive hero that follows pure sports car design principles: low weight (795 kg), perfect aerodynamics (Cd 0.189) and a low centre of gravity (1,153 mm high).

This gives the efficient Volkswagen the ability to cruise on the road at a constant speed of 100 km/h using just 6.2 kW / 8.4 PS. In all-electric mode, the XL1 requires less than 0.1 kWh to cover a driving distance of over one kilometre.

Alongside this technology flagship, the e-up!4 supermini is another up-to-date highlight at the CeBIT. It is the all-electric production vehicle, which offers an entry into a new, pioneering vehicle concept with electric drive and four seats: the e-up! is a car for daily use in the city but also ideal for commuters or as a second car.

It masters distances of up to 160 kilometres without difficulty. Afterwards, 80 per cent of the storage capacity of the e-up! can be charged within 30 minutes. With a consumption of 11.7 kW/h, the e-up! is the most fuel-efficient electric vehicle at present.

With the second generation of the modular infotainment system (MIB), customers will soon be able to order optional MirrorLink™ (in connection with Composition Media and Discover Media infotainment systems) in the new Polo. This makes it possible to display and control the contents and functions shown on a smart phone on the touchscreen of the Polo infotainment system.

To avoid distracting the driver, only specially configured apps will be accessible while driving. Volkswagen will offer apps, for example, which, along with geo-coordinates from the navigation unit, can also access vehicle data such as engine speed, car speed and the fuel tank level. Apps may also be used that are not directly related to vehicle operation, such as Internet radio and news services, provided that they support MirrorLink™.

To improve reception quality and at the same time reduce radiated emissions from the mobile phone, the smart phone may be wirelessly connected to the exterior antenna of the Polo via the Comfort mobile phone interface. Here it suffices to simply place the phone in front in a storage compartment on the centre console. The phone is charged via a USB connector.

In addition, Volkswagen will show the still more powerful Discover Pro infotainment system in Hanover. The latest generation of this system will appear in Hanover with additional features such as higher performance in route calculation, expanded Car-Net services (among other things, Google online destinations, traffic flow and fuel price information at petrol stations) as well as the possibility of using two telephones simultaneously.

Volkswagen will also demonstrate at the CeBIT that something sounding very futuristic has found its way into the car: control by gestures. A specially designed simulation cockpit shows where the development of a gesture-based control of the infotainment system stands at present.

The current touchscreen operation that Volkswagen has consistently implemented with the RNS 510 will be expanded by non-contact gesture commands, so that selected infotainment functions such as menu navigation and media control can be activated without difficulty. A real highlight in this vision of the future: a 3-D picture of the operating hand is presented on the vehicle display; the user sees immediately what the technology is accessing.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles presents another vision of the future: the research vehicle eT. By way of example, it shows the technology level that is maximally feasible today for electric vehicles in the commercial segment. eT! is fantastically tailored to future customer needs: especially the possibility for moving the car electrically and semi-automatically in down-town areas is unique.

The complete research vehicle and all its details were tailored to its specific use as a delivery or courier vehicle for urban areas. Functions such as come to me, with which the vehicle comes to the driver on its own at the push of a button by the driver, or follow me, with which the vehicle follows the driver like a shadow, so to speak. These are but two examples from an ample range of the newest driver assistance systems.

Volkswagen Financial Services as sales driver of the brand lets you experience e-mobility via a multitouch presentation table. From the first steps of e-mobility to the various e-models of the Group to e-fleet management, supplementary mobility packages and BluePower green electricity, the whole range of e-mobility is vividly shown.
