twin up! new record for a four-seat vehicle European cycle fuel of 214 mpg

— Car uses the plug-in system from the XL1

— up to 31 miles in zero-emissions, electric

Wolfsburg / Tokyo, November — Volkswagen introduced the XL1, the most fuel-efficient production to the streets in 2013. This diesel hybrid for two people is produced in a limited volume and has a combined fuel consumption of 261 mpg as well as a carbonfiber body and

Now, Europe’s largest is applying the experience it gained this technological showpiece and is it to a high-volume production vehicle. is presenting this new car at the Tokyo Show: a plug-in hybrid of the up. called the twin up! concept This four-seater shares parts of its drive system the XL1—including its diesel engine, motor, and DSG dual-clutch automatic

Compact hybrid system. all new Volkswagen vehicles are configured to alternative drive systems as as conventional ones, it was easy to the compact plug-in hybrid in the twin up. The only modification in the production version was to lengthen the short front overhang by 1.2

The twin up!’s 55 kW (75 PS) drive of a 35 kW (48 PS) 0.8-liter TDI Clean Diesel a 35kW electric motor, a DQ200 DSG transmission, and the power mounted at the front of the car. at the back, behind the rear and under the trunk, is the “fuel system”: an 8.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, the battery for the electrical system, and an fuel tank.

Maximum The car attains impressive efficiency to a combination of good aerodynamics Cd), a low unladen weight of pounds, lightweight plug-in components, and low rolling resistance R15 tires. In all-electric model, for the twin up! has a driving range of 31

In the “New European Driving standard testing and comparison cycle for plug-in hybrid in Europe—the concept car returns a low fuel consumption figure of 214 which equates to CO2 emissions of 27 g/km.

Good driving The twin up! highlights the fact efficiency and driving fun will not be exclusive in the future. In the city, in mode, the twin up! accelerates 0 to 37 mph in 8.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 78 mph.

In mode, the car delivers 159 pound-feet of a high number for such a car. Out of town, the twin up! from 0 to 62 mpg in 15.7 seconds and a top speed of 87 mph.

Plug-in hybrid concept in

Two-cylinder TDI. The TDI produces its power of 35 kW from just 830 cc. The cylinder TDI was derived from a rail four-cylinder, 1.6-liter engine and has a bore spacing of 88 mm, a bore and stroke of 81.0 by mm. The XL1’s engine also key internal modifications for reducing which include specially piston recesses for multiple and individual orientation of the injection

The common-rail diesel’s smooth properties were transferred to the engine, aided by a balancer that is driven by and turns at the speed as the crankshaft. An exhaust gas system, an oxidation catalytic and a diesel particulate filter are to reduce tailpipe emissions.

module. The hybrid module is between the TDI engine and the seven-speed DSG it consists of an electric motor and a integrated in the DSG housing in place of the flywheel. The electric motor is with energy from the 8.6 kWh battery.

The power electronics, operate at 308 Volts, manage the of high-voltage energy between the and the electric motor and convert current to alternating current.

Order under the hood. The compartment of the twin up! is completely All service access points are in locations. A matte black compartment cover with insulation organizes all the recognisable The power electronics, and the service located across from it, are in a high-gloss black band, also functionally partitions the compartment.

Interplay of drive modes. As noted, the electric motor can the twin up! for distances of up to 31 miles and to a top of 78 mph. In electric mode, the TDI is decoupled from the drivetrain and is off.

Meanwhile, the clutch on the side remains closed, and the DSG is fully engaged. Provided the battery is sufficiently charged, the can choose when and where the up! should be driven electrically by the e-mode button. Restarting the TDI is a very smooth process.

driving, the electric motor’s is sped up and is very quickly to the clutch in a process known as starting”. This accelerates the engine to the required speed and it, so the driver hardly notices the

Energy and drive management. the twin up! is braked, the electric operates as a generator; its braking is used to charge the battery regeneration. In certain operating the load of the TDI engine can be shifted so it operates at its most favorable level.

The gears in the DSG transmission are always selected with the aim of energy usage.

The engine regulates the entire energy and management system based on the load demanded by the driver. flowing into this system include the accelerator or position, engine load, supply, and mix of kinetic and electric so that the system always the optimal type of propulsive

For example, blue double lines frame the seats and decorative stitching is used on the steering wheel and in the trim for the lever. On the outside, the motif of blue double stripes is above the sill area.
