Crash Recovery System Database Update
Database update November 2020
In the third quarter of 2020, almost one in 10 passenger cars sold in the EU was an electrically rechargeable car (9.9%), compared to 3.0% in the same period last year. The support measures taken by several countries to boost car demand amid the COVID-19 pandemic are detrimental to conventionally powered vehicles. All alternatively powered vehicles (APV) together accounted for nearly 25% of the EU car market from July to September 2020, with sales doubling (+ 101,4%) from 337.108 units last year to 678.777 this year. Of the four main markets, Germany (+ 159,8%) and France (+ 144,1%) posted the largest increases, mainly due to the exceptionally strong sales of plug-in hybrids, followed by Italy (+ 60,3%) and Spain (+ 51,6%).
For the car database, the addition includes the Lynk & Co 01. This car model is built on the same platform as the current Volvo XC-40 and will soon be available on the European market. But already included in the Crash Recovery System! There is a choice of two powertrains: first, there is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). It has a 1.5 L three-cylinder turbo engine with 180 hp and 265 Nm of torque, which works together with an electric motor that delivers 81 hp and 160 Nm of torque. The combined power is, according to Lynk & Co, 261 hp. The battery capacity of the lithium-ion battery is 17.6 kWh, making the theoretical electrical range approximately 68 km. In addition, a regular hybrid version is available (HEV), which is only available in Europe. Under the hood of this version also houses the 1.5 L three-cylinder, but with 143 hp and 215 Nm of torque. The electric motor delivers 54 hp and 130 Nm of torque, bringing the combined power to 197 hp. What is special is that customers can only choose from two colors: black or blue.
Furthermore, the database has been expanded with two fully electrically powered passenger cars, namely the Opel Mokka-e, and the Fiat 500e. The latter car has been completely newly developed and is available as a 3-door, 4-door and a 2-door convertible. The Fiat has a power output of 95 hp and a battery capacity of 23.8 kWh and, according to the WLPT method, should be able to travel approximately 180 km on one battery charge. There is also a version with a larger battery capacity, namely 42 kWh. The power of that electric motor is 118 hp. The range is then almost double and is 320 km. The Opel Mokka-e uses the powertrain of the DS3 Crossback, Peugeot e-208 and the e-2008. That means a power of 136 hp and a battery pack of 50kWh that ensures a range of 310 km. The conventional Mokka variants with a combustion engine are the 1.2 Puretech in petrol version and the diesel with 1.5 BlueHDi engine.
The truck database has been expanded with the fully electrically powered “Emoss versions” of the DAF LF, the MAN TGS Vlot (crane truck) and the Mercedes-Benz Antos. In addition, the Ginaf eCity (MB Atego) and the Mercedes-Benz Econic Denmark in Emoss version have been added.
A special addition is the Hyundai XCIENT Fuell Cell truck. This truck is the world’s first fuel cell heavy truck. The Korean car and truck manufacturer has entered the European truck market with the XCIENT and wants to further expand the sales of fuel cell trucks. The truck is powered by an electric motor with an output of 350 kW (pulling power 3400 Nm) and a twin fuel cell with a total of 190 kW. More information about this special truck can be found in this article on the news section of our website.
Another interesting addition to the CRS is the fully electrically powered MAN eTGM truck. The electric drive of this truck is provided by a 264 kW (360 hp) electric motor with a maximum torque of 3100 Nm. The energy storage is contained in twelve powerful lithium-ion battery packs (total capacity 185 kWh) from the Volkswagen Group, which are located above the front axle. More information about this electrically powered truck can be found in this article on the news section of our website.
The additions to the bus database are the Alexander Dennis Enviro400 EV double decker, the BYD K9UB and K9UE (panto up and down), the Iveco Crossway CNG 12, the Scania Citywide LE CNG, the Scania Interlink LD CNG and the VDL Citea in various versions with hybrid powertrain.
