The Japanese carmaker company plans to market a new version of the Auras in 2012, this time it has been called Toyota Auras TRD, it is a compact car, city dwellers with multiple elements that make it perfect for urban traffic, in addition to utility spends a good technical equipment and comfort in these times it means a lot to every young person in search of their first means of transport staff.
The bad news that accompanies the launch of the Toyota Auras TRD is that at the moment there are plans marketed in Spanish territory is according to statements by executives of the brand may never reach the Spanish dealers, in the end it should not mean you cannot get one by buying overseas.
The main purpose of the firm to build the Toyota Auras TRD was to give simplicity and cheerfulness in all aerodynamic attributes to be visible by everyone at any time, anywhere, that is why the body is full of them, egg the tail placed at the sides of the structure, a bumper over storey, air intakes as low as in the center of the grill, and top it off investing in spoiler in the rear embedded in the ceiling.
Because TRD Toyota Auras is a newly launched model is little information regarding their technical equipment, but as is characteristic of us have managed to find riding a 1.6-literengine capable of issuing a development equivalent to the 181 hp and maximum torque of 202 Nm respectively.
A few days ago, was held in the capital Castilian-leonine the Hall of alternative fuel vehicle and Valladolid. At this appointment we could try for the first time for a short period of time what it was like to drive an electric “real” as the Citroen C-Zero.
First of all, before heading to the sandbox, I went to the Citroën stand to meet in person the model. I had only seen in pictures, never live. Seeing him, I get the impression that this is an entire car. We must begin to banish the idea that electric cars as a plastic matchbox would seem that in any downturn is going to crumble Tank city or G-Wiz.
It looks hard and solid. Looking outside as if it were a normal car, with its standard features, amenities, interior space, and his poise. If not for the insignias “Full electric” to monopolize various parts of your body, nothing would suggest that this is an electric model.
When you open the door and you look out you see that everything inside is very chic, very ornate, very elegant, in short, very French. It is a car that you like hop and enjoy watching every little detail and finish, nothing to do with boring monotony classic Japanese cars.
The instrumentation is typical of an electric car. We have a needle analog potentiometer that tells us every moment that we are consuming electricity or rebuilding. In this clock, we have a digital display that indicates the speed at which we are circulating.
Other than that we only have two displays. In one, there is shown a digital gauge the level of battery charge and the other, oppositely placed, an estimate of the miles you can travel with the load we have. I personally seem to have been exceeded so obsessed with load and battery life.
It seems that the most important thing to tell you that the car is 100 km you will be thrown. Personally I’ve always liked the pictures you convey much information with many clocks and screens, but has not been included here anything. At least the Nissan Leaf has a temperature indicator batteries, it’s something.
As we know, this car is basically identical to its twin brothers who are the Peugeot Ion and the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. A lively trade mark tells me that have an engine of 67 hp with 180 Nm of torque and rear-mounted lithium-ion batteries are in the center, below the occupants. It also tells me that does 0-100 in 15.9 seconds a regrettable acceptable and reaches 130 km / h.
So much for the mechanics. Autonomy, subject always committed when it comes to electric vehicles, has about 16 kWh batteries which can travel about 150 miles on average, much along the line of its direct competitors.
And having already told my impressions after viewing the model in person, sit in Deland, back and general tinkering around with all the buttons and parts of the car, I turn to the test area is a closed circuit of just one kilometer long. There’s a queue of horror, so I work up the courage and hope.
