Cabify and Uber hunting for Car2Go: Launch service electric vehicles to move around Madrid

If you live in Madrid already know that! move with your own car for the Spanish capital can be many times the assisted suicide as a result of monumental traffic jams , the popular area SER payment and real challenge that can be converted to park in the center.

on the occasion of the constants prohibitions pollution are increasingly restrictive are already several startups as the Spanish Cabify or Uber to launch a service of electric vehicles to move freely around Madrid and also start the “witch hunt” against Car2Go , which has been several months growing success with its smart electric fortwo .

the big cities gradually they are changing their forms of transport to progress towards the ecological and electric , although still in cities like Madrid there very few charging points available there are companies like Car2Go who have managed to offer a different and fun way to get around without dying in the attempt, on the contrary, have had to increase its fleet to 150 vehicles as a result of strong demand and great reception that experienced by the locals.

Now Uber and Cabify also launched to offer its first commercial electric car rental with driver, but with some differences that we are going to have next!

Uber

Uber

The company founded in San Francisco launch this rental service electric vehicles thinking mainly of business travelers , perhaps facing a public more “premium” put it in some way. It has already been tested in countries like Portugal or France and has the advantage of being the first service of its kind to be launched worldwide . Born as an additional and independent to the current alternative Uber X and anyone you can book despite being aimed at a more specialized sector of the population.

Although have not yet confirmed again release date if they have ensured that before the end of this year have a 100% electric service available in Madrid, explained a company spokesman. The pilot idea launched in cities like Lisbon or Porto under the name “ UberGreen ” and as a result of success of these tests now think making the leap to the whole planet provide a clean and easy way to move .

uber

‘ll just have to open our app Uber in the mobile to select new option available which will always reserve a car electric . Uber has not confirmed the moment how work and other details, only to is dependent Uber X , and selecting this option may have one independent fleet 100% power , contrary to happened so far in cities like London where to apply for a vehicle could both be electric, and hybrid or normal.

This new service will be a complete alternative to Car2Go however, although they have not yet officially confirmed rates it is practically certain to be higher than the 0.19 euros / minute established today Car2Go. Brainer considering that Uber offers a vehicle with driver and characteristics very different from smart fortwo where there is only room for two occupants with a small space in the trunk and only in the ring M-30.

Cabify

the Spanish startup is definitely of the best options for quality / price to move around the capital, as well tariffs are not time dependent and always calculate shortest path -based on Waze- popular application regardless of the chosen by the driver, something that makes us very quiet, as well as incorporating a large number of amenities like a Wi-Fi or water bottles for free. Gradually have expanded to cities like Malaga-Marbella, Barcelona, ​​A Coruña or even across the pond in Mexico City, Peru or Chile.

Now BMW i Cabify have signed a collaboration agreement to give citizens an form of mobility 100% electric thanks to exclusive BMW i3 , a vehicle specially designed for city driving and free emissions. Will have 20 units this BMW i3 giving rise to a new category called “ Cabify Electric “, which also have the same cost category Cabify Lite -the most economical of the application-. Additionally, until September 22 this new range will have a 15% discount .

BMW i3 94ah 1

Cabify was first Spanish company to offer this type of services car rental with driver under the VTC license, and now thanks to BMW want go one step further to incorporate this model so special that very slowly seeps in the Spanish market and can boast of being environmentally friendly both of keep driving pleasure and the characteristic of the German brand innovation.

“the commitment of BMW Group for electric mobility and new mobility systems, is evident in the project presented today together to Cabify, inaugurating the category of Cabify Electric with the BMW i3. “ said Francisco Dominguez, BMW i Manager of BMW Group Spain.

the alternative forms of transport in large cities are evolving at breakneck speed without doubt the most benefit from them are the users themselves, and that increasing direct competition between different companies we can enjoy more ways to move every time more affordable, sustainable and quality , leaving the car at home and saving us more than a disappointment.

Another castañazo for Volkswagen: The double-clutch gearbox DSG is the subject of a new lawsuit

In Volkswagen seems that they will never leave the “pit”, and that after scandal ‘Dieselgate’ they accumulate demands. The last one comes from none other than Wolfgang Schreiber , former director of Bentley and Bugatti, director of transmissions in the Volkswagen Group and even director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.

as some already know, it was he who since 1996 worked hard so that the dual-clutch transmissions from reaching the street vehicles , and of course, now asks Volkswagen royalties for its patents. Specifically, between the work that Mr. Schreiber served in the German giant was development of the known direct-shift gearbox DSG work by which now calls for “ adequate compensation “prowling 100 million euros .

Caja de cambios DSG

While it is true, Wolfgang Schreiber appears as inventor and co-developer of various components in many patents that make gearboxes DSG , and if we consider that this is equipped in almost all ranges, models and brands of the group and has sold four million cars equipped with it since its launch in 2003, may not it is too .

At the time, Volkswagen offered a compensation of 20 million euros, but our protagonist thirsts for money and considers that it should be much more , just as revealed by the daily Der Spiegel has echoed the complaint filed in court in Munich. For now we do not know how it will end the legal battle, although VAG group is certainly not to weaken further

Alfa Romeo Stelvio: Italian SUV is close and you could go for the Cayenne Turbo S at the Nurburgring

is nothing new that Alfa Romeo you! like creating much excitement around their new models . They enjoy more becoming increasingly hard to get when introducing new products, but the fact is that their latest deserve. We still have all the details to discover which will be the latest release in SUV format of the brand, the Stelvio , but the wait gradually comes to an end and we will see in the next Hall Los Angeles in less than a month.

the first to discover the new strategy of the Italian manufacturer was Giulia , but without a doubt, the SUV segment is the most it grows and had to be present in it. In fact, they will do it big, because Milanese firm is preparing two different SUV . The first belongs to D segment and we meet in the American appointment, will be called to compete against models such as the Audi Q5 or BMW X3, while later know a second model more large and luxurious based on the Maserati Levante to stand up to the BMW X5 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE (yes, we would not see until 2018 and first in the Chinese and US markets).

Alfa Romeo Stelvio render (1)

Focusing on the Stelvio, which will be the first to know, we must say that it is a name really successful for a vehicle of this class, as the name refers to mountain pass paved highest elevation in the eastern Alps. As is the case with Giulia, there will be versions rear and all-wheel drive , as both share platform and, most likely, much of the mechanical range.

Everything points to Alfa Romeo has chosen the US event to introduce its new SUV with the aim of entering back into this large and lucrative market.

If so, would be present several engines of 4 and 6 cylinder between which no shortage of various options turbodiesel , being all they crowned by a powerful V6 2.9-liter twin-turbo with an output around 500 hp . Aesthetically, the design details are difficult to distinguish in the spy photos we’ve seen so far, but we can predict a prominent grille that is flanked by the characteristic thin headlights brand and large lower air intakes.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio render (3)

At the rear, a roof will not be short of gentle fall with certain air of coupe, a dual exhaust system and a wraparound rear lights. Regarding the interior, this will be very similar to the new sedan star manufacturer and, if a few months ago we were not wrong in saying that Lorenzo Ramaciotti -the legendary designer cars- sat on the tailgate Stelvio something you can see in this that rose Ralph Gilles, chief designer of the Fiat Group Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), to his Instagram account image.

Moreover, in terms of performance Reid Bigland , head of the brand in the US, recently told Car & Driver the Stelvio offer extraordinary performance both in acceleration figures and circuit , which could mean that the first SUV brand has set a goal to overcome the fastest lap marked by an SUV in the famous Green Hell, set at 7 minutes and 59 seconds by Porsche Cayenne Turbo S .

apparently, Alfa Romeo will start production of the Stelvio in Cassino during the fourth quarter of this year, which means that no delays occur, sales begin in the first quarter of 2017 . After presenting this model, the Italian manufacturer will unveil a SUV upper segment, a luxury sedan and a pair of spiders

to fully recharge the battery need 3 hours 45 minutes, although achieve 80% energy requires less than three hours.

under the hood, the BMW X1 combines a petrol engine with 1.5-liter Turbo, only three cylinders and 136 hp with an electric motor of 94 hp to achieve a final combined output of 224 hp and torque of 385 Nm . When both engines work, this model is an all-wheel drive because the power is responsible for moving the wheels of the rear axle. The performance and consumption data are very good level, at least as reported by the company, may spend 0 to 100 km / h in just 7.4 seconds , while consumption is declared is within a few 1,8 l / 100 electric mode and can go about 60 km
