Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. introduced in Brazil, the world’s first prototype car for solid oxide fuel cell (Solid Oxide Fuel-Cell – SOFC), which moves at the expense of electricity generation from bioethanol. The advanced prototype of a light commercial vehicle uses a variety of fuels, including ethanol and natural gas as a source of electricity, as well as Nissan Qashqai headlight fuse.
The President and CEO of Nissan Carlos Ghosn said: “The Prototype of the e-Bio Fuel-Cell offers eco-friendly solution to the transport problem and creates opportunities for energy production in different regions, at the same time maintaining the existing infrastructure there. In the future e-Bio Fuel-Cell becomes even more convenient to use. It is easier to work with a water-alcohol mixture than with the most of other types of fuel, and due to the fact that fuel is required to create a new infrastructure, it has enormous potential to contribute to the growth of the market”.
Armored Vehicles Marauder in 2011, recognized as the most durable in the world. He has successfully passed all the ordeals that his team subjected the famous Top Gear program.
The strongest today the car was assembled by Paramount (South Africa). It is a well-known global manufacturer of the most technologically advanced and protected armored vehicles.
Initially, the car created to accompany the convoys and transport infantry units. Now he can buy one, because most countries in Africa are living with criminalized society, armored vehicle used by people who want to kill or undermine at every corner.
Mass production is in Jordan, and development in South Africa. This is done in order to reduce the cost of the car and maintenance. For example, in the Paramount Marauder used a diesel engine and axles MAN company’s production company, power 224 “horses” and 801 Nm.
In short, engine braking is an action that occurs when the engine is resisting to load, seeks to increase the speed of rotation of the crankshaft. Well, if we try to explain this process in more detail, the engine braking occurs when the driver releases the accelerator pedal (clutch engaged), that is, the fuel supply to the engine is reduced if not zero, to a minimum, and the power unit becomes from giving energy to receiving it from a transmission operating by inertia. At this point there is the same resistance, slowing the rotation of the crankshaft and, accordingly, reduces the vehicle speed.
One major advantage of the engine brake is that it increases the stability of the vehicle to skid, because the wheels are not blocked by the brake pads as a braking via braking system.
