Let's get grow with future Morphoz by Renault

As it is well known that the organization of the Geneva International Motor Show 2020, one of the world's major automotive exhibitions has been canceled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 on the European mainland. 

But it does not dampen the spirit of the French manufacturer, Renault to innovate by displaying the latest concept car of the future called Renault Morphoz. And through this concept, the French automaker wants to show the direction of their SUV design in the future, especially in the midsize segment.
Renault's Morphoz Concept is a shapeshifting go-anywhere SUV. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/39C2jSm)
This concept car is specially designed in such a way as to be able to function as a convenient city car for urban use and a reliable cruiser when long distances traveling. This is the latest concept car from the development of the CMF-EV platform from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance which fully relies on the electric-powered powertrain.

The Morphoz has the vision to be an urban family car in 2027 to come, while the platform will be the base of the Renault electric crossover that will launch this year. Not only that, but the platform will also be used for use on a series of prospective new models of Renault electric cars.
Renault Morphoz in normal size or while at 'City' driving mode only packs a 40 kWh battery, so that it can only cover a distance of 400 km.  (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2IvZs1A)
At least, there're three unique vehicle design elements translated into the Morphoz, ie taken from a saloon or sedan, SUV, and coupe. Then all those three are combined into one car to optimize the efficiency and ease of a vehicle. So that in further development, the concept car has unique features that accommodate all the design elements above.
Renault Morphoz in elongated size or while at 'Travel' driving mode providing an extra space of 20 cm to be filled with an additional 50 kWh battery thus a total of power of 90 kWh and make the car able to roam as far as 700 km. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2IvZs1A)
Yes, the car concept has unique features that made the chassis can be elongated according to its driving mode. As we all can see, Renault's electric-powered Morphoz car concept said to have two driving modes, ie City-mode and Travel-mode.
A futuristic steering wheel and compact-size dashboard were providing in the cabin of Renault Morphoz. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/38yz3uw)
The chassis-elongated process followed by the A-pillar section occurs in the Travel-mode, thus providing an extra space of 20 cm to be filled with an additional 50 kWh battery. In this mode, the battery total power of 90 kWh is claimed to make the car able to roam as far as 700 km. Conversely, in the City-mode, the Morphoz concept car only packs a 40 kWh battery, so that it can only cover a distance of 400 km.

In Travel-mode, besides providing extra space for the battery, it also provides extra space in the cabin. Incidentally, the cabin is also designed so that it can adapt to the needs; the front passenger seat can be faced backward if necessary, but not for the driver's seat, considering Morphoz only supports of the Level-3 autonomous driving system (the highest Level-5).
The interior nuances are presented in a very futuristic manner, this is natural considering that the Morphoz which is present this time is a concept car. To Autocar, The Renault representatives said that the safety factor would be the most difficult challenge for producing this car. Renault basically had to do a hit-and-test twice on Morphoz considering that there were two of them. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOR1 | AUTOBLOG | GIZMODO]

One of the most sophisticated performance vehicles of the 21st century

The world's automotive development is increasingly interesting to be noticed. Today which had been entering the 2nd month of 2020 there are a number of major automotive expo events to be held soon in the next view days.

As we all knew, that the automotive expo event is always used by many parties who involve in the world's automotive industries as a place to display everything related to the technologies progress been achieved in the world's automotive, and one of them to be held in this March is the Geneva International Motor Show.
The Czinger 21C is a 3D-printed hybrid hypercar from the US and plans to unveil it at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2tVzG34)
There's good news comes from California, where one of the automotive startup companies in there reportedly will launch its first hypercar figure at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show later.

As quoted from Jalopnik, the figure behind the emergence of the vehicle is Kevin Czinger, who is the same person behind the emergence of the other first 3D-printed high-performance car named the Divergent Blade some times ago.

And now, through the Czinger Vehicles (that's the name of the automotive company of his-owned), which has a production base outside of Los Angeles plans to launch its first hypercar production named Czinger 21C. Although there are still no detailed technical specifications from the Czinger 21C, it is known that the vehicle was also made using the 3D-Print technology.
The Czinger 21C features a mix of 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf parts and has two seats positioned in tandem. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2HXh46p)
According to him, this vehicle will use a self-developed hybrid drive and is claimed with almost unlimited power delivery. And from the hypercar images currently circulating in cyberspace showing that its driver is sitting in the middle of the cockpit and the space behind which is then fitted with the tandem seat for passengers.
By using a hybrid powertrain that makes 1,250 horsepower, the Czinger 21C able to hit 62 mph in 1.9 seconds. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2V99MEh)
And hypercar drive is seen mounted behind a large glass dome, which is passed by a carbon buffer. The large wing at the rear provides sufficient contact pressure on the rear axle. The wheel has a quick-release key, which is known from motorsport. Ceramic brake systems can also be seen - and are also expected given the expected high-performance data. The exhaust is positioned centrally in the Koenigsegg style giving the sound of a hybrid car. Between the wings and the exhaust, there are LED rear lights that run across the entire width of the vehicle.
Power is delivered via a seven-speed sequential transaxle gearbox that was custom-built by Czinger. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2tVzG34)
Czinger claims that his first vehicle will be "one of the most sophisticated performance vehicles in the 21st century". What could be the explanation of names: 21 and C for Century. But it can also give an indication of performance if 2,100 horsepower. Given the high proportion of carbon fiber and the cost of developing in-house drives. And the company is reportedly building just 80 units, divided between 25 track and 55 road iterations and will cost from the US $1.7m each.
And for those of you who want to see the appearance of the hypercar intact figure, you might have to be a little patient until the Geneva International Motor Show 2020 is started on March 3, 2020, later. See ya!!. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FREENET | JALOPNIK | MOTORAUTHORITY | HYPERBEAST]

Pagani Imola has sold out before It launching

The automotive world seems to be always excited, this is marked by the number of automotive manufacturers that look like endless to launch new products. And entering 2020 as an example, Pagani, one of the leading Italian automotive manufacturers. Yes, they seem to have not stopped to be creative which then launched a supercar variant called the Pagani Imola.
Pagani Imola plans to debut at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show in March. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2vHrtjJ)
The supercar variant's name was inspired by the Imola racing circuit located in Italy. This circuit track is a test site for the development of Pagani's latest supercar variant. And even the Italian manufacturer had ever been uploaded a trial display of this car through its social media account in September last year.
Pagani Imola somehow gets its own model name despite clearly taken the inspiration of its predecessor Huayra. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2SEL64L)
And this latest variant also reportedly included in one of the units that will be displayed by the Italian manufacturer at the Geneva Motor Show 2020 event later. The Italian manufacturer officially gave a leaked specification of the Pagani Imola hypercar that was ready to be brought to the exhibition.

It is said that the variant model is an upgraded version of the previous model, Pagani Huayra, by resetting the V12 engine from Mercedes Benz with a capacity of 6.0 L with a double turbo device. So this engine is capable of producing bursts of power up to 827 horsepower with 1,100 Nm of torque which is then channeled through a seven-speed semi-automatic transmission system to drive the wheels.

Although there are no official performance figures released by the manufacturer in terms of speed, Pagani Imola is said to be one of the fastest cars that can be driven on the streets. In construction, this supercar uses a monocoque chassis with Carbo-Titanium and Carbo-Triax. And it is also said that Pagani Imola comes with a unique suspension geometry because the damper will be connected to each other through the latest central electronics. In addition to the dampers, central electronics can also handle engines, transmissions, and differentials.
Pagani Imola has a new feature called the 'Smart Gas' system that reduces the shift times while improving performance(Picture from: http://bit.ly/2V2UIrN)
And this is the first supercar made by Pagani that uses the Acquarello Light paint to reduce the car’s weight by 5 kilograms without sacrificing the color’s depth, richness, and shine. Not only that, but the car also uses aluminum, titanium, and chrome-molybdenum steel, so the final weight of this car is recorded at just 1,246 kg. In addition to its lighter weight, this car is also built using more than 770 new components that are made by sophisticated CNC machine tools.
Pagani Imola uses a Mercedes-Benz AMG motor, a roaring 60-degree, 6-liter V12 making that aforementioned 827 hp as well as 1,100 Nm (811 lb-ft) of torque. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/2uYrnE3)
Another leak said this car will have increased acceleration, especially in the replacement of the transmission with the addition of a new system called Smart Gas which is claimed to be able to make this supercar more easier to be controlled. But unfortunately, the new detailed information will be delivered by this Italian company when the world's largest automotive exhibition takes place in March.
Then Pagani Imola will only be assembled as many as five units, with the latest news, all of them have been sold to interested ones now. Although, Pagani sold each unit of this supercar in the price range of €5 million or around Rp.74.1 billion. However, it isn't yet known whether the unit displayed in Geneva later is one of the models that has been sold. We thought this supercar launches decent to be waiting. How's about you? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | NEW ATLAS | CARSCOOPS | MOTOR1 | AUTOBLOG]
