Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in Hybrid
Porsche has recently unveiled its brand new ultra fuel efficient
car, which is called Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in Hybrid Concept.
This is the first hybrid car with electric plug-in, designed
by Porsche. New Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in Hybrid Concept was
unveiled on Geneva Motor Show, 2010, and the reviews so far
have been exhuberant.
The most outstanding feature of the Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in
Hybrid Concept is its sports design, the fact that it gets 78
mpg and the fact that it is a low emissions car. Even though
the Spyder is a plug-in hybrid electric car, this is not Porsche's
first venture into hybrids. In fact, many will tell you that
Porsche invented the first hybrid car in 1899.
But, let's rewind back to today. The Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in
Hybrid Concept gives you the performance of a super sports car
with a 500 hp V8 and a pair of electric motors. The Porsche
Spyder can sprint from 0 - 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. Since
1899, Porsche has managed to keep the quality of its brand name
and has designed more than a few amazing cars.
One of the outstanding qualities of the Porsche 918 Spyder
Plug-in Hybrid Concept is that it provides an emission level
of just 70 grams of C02 per kilometer, which is the envy of
other sports car makers. The design of the car is contemporary
and yet traditional.
Because the Porsche Spyder has a high reviving engine with
a maximum of 9,200 rpm, this car gives a superb performance
for a race track. In addition, the front and rear axle helps
the car in maintaining a perfect balance. The added advantage
of the Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in Hybrid Concept is that its
battery can be charged anwhere, on any regular electrical network.
The Porsche 918 Spyder is a two-seater car. The interior is
very user friendly. This car has four different running modes.
To operate these different modes, the manufacturers have provided
a button on steering wheel that helps the driver to manage these
modes easily. The four modes are e-drive mode, hybrid mode,
sport hybrid mode and race hybrid mode. The car regularly runs
on electric power under e-drive mode.
The design of Porsche 918 Spyder Plug-in Hybrid Concept is
very eye-catching to say the least especially if you happen
to be a Porsche fan. The 918 Spyder is one in which many fans
are already clamoring for this vehicle to go into full production
soon. Now, will Porsche respond?
