Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forum, 2019 Ford Focus ST undisguised ahead of world debut-Although Ford is moving away from private cars to SUVs and pickups, the focus remains an important model for the Blue Oval in Europe, while a safety hatch for the region is still being built. . And if these images, which Carscoops have taken from a private forum, are an indication, the next ST is really tasty.
This device is not masked, painted in bright orange tones, offers some visual preference improvements in standard fire, including a honeycomb mesh for the trapezoidal grille, wider ventilation openings with a black perimeter, a large, bright black rear spoiler and a diffuser with body color insert. The common central exhaust outlets of ST are replaced on each corner by round tubes. Other highlights include the side skirts, alloy wheels Y-spokes and black handles and heavily armed and the brand of the Rec chair of the ST brand. Inside in combination with the wheel with flat bottom. In what will be good news for fans around the world, the manual transmission will remain, probably linked to a six-speed transmission.
This gearbox must be combined with the Mustang 2.3-liter four-person EcoBoost with turbocharger, which produces 286 hp and 440 Nm in ponies. With competitors like the Hyundai i30 N, the Peugeot 308 GTi and the Renault Megane RS approaching 300 hp, this is good news. However, other rumors suggest that the car instead the Fiesta ST ‘1.5-liter, three-pot, increased to about 280 hp

This is the first electric truck?
Depending on what you think. Over the years, the other concept car, despite its crazy style, can be described as an electric tablet. In 2016, Chevy produced original hydrogen hydrogen batteries for the military. Fuel produces electricity and hydrogen from an electric motor. Another manufacturing company based in the US produces a prototype for the subsequent installation of existing standard standard commercial and domestic trucks. Bollinger looks a lot like Rivian. The big difference between this and the R1T seems to be Rihanna.
Why did not the major manufacturers build an electric truck? Pick up is the most profitable vehicle. They sell not only in large quantities, but also on income. As long as fuel is cheap, Americans still spend all available income. Ford, GM, Chrysler and Fiat are investing in protecting these benefits. In the United States, Toyota is not much more than Hilux. UU., This vehicle will have a significantly lower margin and generate revenue from Tacoma and Tundra, which are much more profitable. So why should we spend billions of dollars for the sale of alternative, less important energy?
“Automakers do not want to play with bread and butter,” says George. He pointed out that determining the expected range and robustness of conventional truck customers would be the biggest obstacle for every conceivable electric car. “I do not like to look like an advertisement for Ford,” he continues. “But truck buyers expect their trucks to be built by force.”
Mathematics is also a problem for a future hypothetical truck. The Tesla Model 3, the battery for the world’s most advanced electric cars, is revolutionary and costs just $ 190 per kilowatt hour. If Rivian can reach this price (which is unlikely), the base station will have R1T batteries worth $ 20,000. And a $ 20,000 battery is only 230 km away. Have American consumers accepted a $ 69,000 car that can only travel 230 miles? Rivian seems to be ready for this, but he is not one of the big car manufacturers.
However, it is absolutely certain that they have all calculated the costs of batteries to achieve a reasonable return. And you can be sure that everyone (unlike many other vehicles) has an electric charge in the showroom after you are convinced that you can earn money with it. Will this be before or after the delivery of the first Rivian R1T? Your success is just as good as mine.
And almost certainly there are many other electric SUVs before the R1S comes on the market. “The 2019 will be the year of an electric SUV,” says George. He mentions an example of the new peace of Jaguar and suggests that a road version of the Land Rover logo and similar vehicles from all other European brands will soon be available.
We are talking about driving electric vehicles.
Because the configuration of electric vehicles does not impose a fixed place on the mechanical main components, designers can optimize the position of large and heavy parts. One of the reasons why Tesla’s flu is good is that, just like the Concept Rivianos, batteries are placed under the floor of the cab and the concentration is reduced. These volatile batteries must be protected from drops, wrinkles and elements, so that the resulting reinforcement serves as a frame and anti-slip function.
Expand the benefits of this offroad skateboard player / frame. Rivian says that the R1T will have a free height of 14.2 cm above the ground. Focus on a stable and safe terrain, even with very difficult obstacles. These batteries are closed like other electric diving vehicles. Rivian has an impressive maximum depth of gratings of 3.2 m (3 m) …………….
