E ine first study of your 1,000- The team led by technical director Matthew Jin already showed HP sports cars with turbine support in Geneva 2016. Jin was now at Giugiario's home with his father, William Jin, to do the design. The final model, which is now called Ren, was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. At the end of 2017, 25 hand-made prototypes are to be created, after which series production is planned. A limited series of 96 racetrack versions is hand-built in Italy, with a production volume of 10 vehicles per year.

Like many electric car start-ups, Techrules is a blank slate. The Chinese, based in Beijing, describe themselves as a new research and development company with the aim of “developing automotive drive technologies that will help the next generation of vehicles to become more efficient and environmentally friendly, as well as to facilitate operation and improve the user experience '. Aha.

The Techrules sports car is called Ren

The version of the Techrules Ren, now unveiled in Geneva, is a three-seater. The driver sits in the center, with the two passengers behind it. A cockpit with three dents that can be swiveled upwards spans the modular three-cockpit concept. If the Ren is ordered with fewer seats, the number of polycarbonate pulpits will be adjusted. The interior is lined with leather and Alcantara, plus there is denim. What remains is the carbon lightweight chassis and the TREV drive technology (see below), which were shown in Geneva in 2016. The system is scalable and, depending on the configuration, offers a battery capacity of 14 to 32 kWh as well as up to two motors at the front and four motors at the rear. The two-engine, rear-wheel drive configuration has one engine for each rear wheel. A four-engine configuration drives all four wheels. The most powerful six-engine configuration has two engines for each rear wheel and one for each front wheel. The total output is a maximum of 960 kW (1,305 PS) and 2,340 Nm. The ren sprints to 100 km /h in 2.5 seconds and reaches a maximum of 320 km /h. With two engines 435 HP and 780 Nm are specified, with four engines 870 HP and 1,560 Nm. A range of 1,170 km should be possible from 80 liters of diesel fuel. Up to 200 km are purely electric. With less power, theIncrease total range up to 2,000 km. The charging time for up to 80% of the battery capacity is specified as 15 minutes. The technology is made visible by transparent covers on the front and rear.

The equipment of the 1.7-ton Techrules Ren includes numerous driver assistance systems and a variety of driving programs. The driver's cockpit houses a self-leveling screen with performance-focused instrumentation at the level of the center of the steering wheel, while rear-facing cameras feed three monitors with image data. The lighting is based on LED laser light, braking is carried out with carbon-ceramic stoppers. A loudspeaker system is available for external communication, and a 60-liter storage space in the rear for luggage.

The design of the Techrules Ren is dominated by large air inlets and outlets. On the arrowed front, two triangular openings suck in cooling air, while a computer-controlled spoiler always ensures optimal downforce at the jagged rear with a continuous LED light strip. An oversized diffuser lives in the basement. The fin behind the pulpit is also striking. 265/35 tires on 22-inch rims keep contact with the road.

Techrules TREV with a range of over 2,000 km

Review of 2016: How can a technology company present its expertise better than with super sports cars? Not at all. Ergo, the Chinese showed two corresponding models in Geneva, which should achieve enormous performance and efficiency values ​​with a unique and patented turbine charging system for electric vehicles (TREV - Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle). The manufacturer spoke of 768 kW (around 1,044 hp) peak power and a range of over 2,000 kilometers. Consumption is said to be an unbelievable 0.18 l /100 km. The driving dynamics values ​​are just as unbelievable: 0 to 100 km /h in 2.5 seconds. Top speed: governed 350 km /h. The athletes should be ready for series production in just a few years, then normal cars with the same technology in the B and C segments should be pushed in.

And what is this TREV system? Basically an electric drive train with a range extender. A kerosene-fired microturbine (alternatively, the turbine is also designed for the use of natural gas, biogas, diesel or petrol) supplies electricity for the storage battery, which in turn transfers it to the electric motors. One on each of the front wheels and two on each rear wheel. The TREV system is exclusively a serial hybrid range extender system.

The turbines that drive the generators rotate at 96,000 rpm. and rely on compressed air for shaft bearings. The turbine generates an output of 36 kW. Of this power, 30 kW are used to drive the generator, 6 kW of which are used directly to operate additional components such as the converters. A special charging technique is supposed to charge theLithium manganese oxide battery cells of the type 18650 (total capacity: 20 kWh). The pure battery range should be 150 kilometers. If the 80-liter fuel supply is also burned, ranges of up to 2,000 km should result. The consumption then increases to 4.8 liters per 100 km. Of course, the energy storage can also be recharged at the socket.

Techrules series models should weigh less than 1,000 kg

In Geneva 2016, the new technology was presented in the AT96 and GT96 models. The AT96 is the vision of a racetrack version, the GT96 is designed as a street sports car. Their weight is currently around 1.4 tons, and a weight of less than 1,000 kg for the carbon fiber flounder is targeted for series production. The dimensions are: length 4,648 mm, width 2,034 mm, height 1,140 mm, wheelbase 2,655 mm. Techrules uses 20-inch wheels with 265/35 tires at the front and 325/30 rollers at the rear. The two athletes are slowed down with ventilated 405 mm brake discs and 6-piston brake calipers at the front and ventilated 380 mm brake discs and 4-piston brake calipers at the rear. Of course, energy is recovered here.
