The Skoda Octavia is in addition produced in the Czech Republic, China, Russia, India, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. China is no doubt of the most important markets for the model, released here by mid 2014. Since the start of production of the Octavia in 1996 were manufactured 4.6 million units in more than 100 markets. Since then, this model accounts for 40% of sales of the brand.
This model will use a multi-layer canvas roof, which we imagine, will have one of the best records worldwide soundproofing for a convertible roof Lona and also with a large rear window to facilitate visibiidad. As you can see, the image is picked up with the ceiling, but wearing it, we expect a view very similar to that of the Coupé variant profile maintaining very similar proportions to not break the harmony of its lines.
Under the hood, the engine range will be very similar to the S-Class Coupé, including the S63 V8 Twin-Turbo V12 and S65 of 6 liters. They all count as standard with rear-wheel drive, although in some of the engines will have optional all-wheel drive system 4MATIC.
BMW will ensure that the i5 does not fall into monotema and also the electric model also will be sold as a hybrid gasoline engine. This engine is almost certainly a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder that will work in conjunction with the electric motors, failing to meet basic data such as whether it will serve to propel the vehicle or only to recharge the batteries and propel turn both engines electric. If the first option, the top-end i5 easily fly over 500 horses. And would this really is interesting.
The BMW i5 will be a midsize sedan and dimensions that will be in the D segment By size will compete in the same sector as other similar sedans such as the Audi A4, the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes Class C. However the focus will be very different, because in concept and philosophy will be traced to the Tesla Model S, that is, an electric sedan with high performance to rival precisely with the American brand Tesla Motors. Seen this way, what do we expect exactly the i5?
We do not know yet officially especificaicones techniques, but is expected to be identical or very similar to that of the four-door version, with 4-liter V8 with 469 hp and 250 km / h speed with 0-100 km / h in four seconds for the access version and 503 hp and 0-100 km / h in 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 289 km / h in its most top-end version.
Thanks to these mechanical changes, the power of its 3.5-liter V12 went from 550 to 603 hp, also improving its performance slightly, achieving a top speed of 348 km / h and a 0-100 in 3.3 seconds. These figures but today have been largely overcome, we must consider that we talk about early 90s, so at that time proved spectacular.
All we know its range of engines that will equip a propellant is 1 liter three-cylinder turbocharged direct injection called 'Boosterjet' with the result you should get a tight consumption and emissions, and should also move fluently and set Suzuki claims to have conducted a strict diet model to contain the maximum weight.
In closing, this unit will be exposed not only to stand firm in Pebble Beach Woking. There will also be another drive McLaren 570S by MSO, whose body color is the 'Orange Ventura', although this so far we have no images.
At the moment it is only available in Germany as a limited number of units, but could also reach other European markets.
