Operating principle, type of hybrid installation

The Porsche 918 Spyder uses a parallel hybrid setup. It includes 3 units in itself: a petrol engine and two electric motors. The robotic transmission allows you to connect to the rear axle of the DVS and the electric motor, both separately and together. The front axle is equipped with a separate electric motor. Preview the operating braking technology.

The hybrid engine is able to work in small modes:

E-Power. Only the electric motors are in operation, the power is supplied to the battery. In the event of a lack of charge, the DVS is connected. With good luck, the entire system will operate. The permissible speed is limited to 150 km / h.

Hybrid. The hybrid mode is aimed at the economy of fuel, will work like electric motors, as well as DVS. When the battery is fully charged or when the battery is powered up, the petrol motor is switched off.

Sport Hybrid. This mode is constantly used by the DVS, and the electric motors are connected when there is a lack of power. Aimed at sports driving while maintaining normal fuel consumption.

Race Hybrid. The maximum performance of the entire system is achieved. The battery is recharged only when the system is running and when braking. At the start, all forces are directed to the car’s acceleration. The electric motors are fully loaded.

Hot Lap — available upon activation of the previous one. Directed to walk through short sections of the line, using all the power.

Cymmar power of the hybrid power plant — 887 horsepower.

Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid Specifications

Along with the provocative external view, the data of the car provide high dynamics. The following table lists the main technical data of the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Help. Together with the car, there is a charging cable for the 220-Volt network.

Petrol engine

An 8-cylinder V-type gasoline engine is installed at the back. Its volume is 4.6 liters. Maximum power of 608 hp. reached at 8700 rpm. The limiting torque is limited to 500 Nm.

Electric engine

The Porsche 918 Spider is equipped with two electric motors. One at a time.

The power of the traction electric motor, with an open back, is 115 kW. The front is more weak, power — 95 kW. The maximum torque of rotation of both motors is 583 Nm, reached at 3500 rpm.

The conservation of energy is due to the performance of the braking. Electric motors provide slowdown up to 0.5G. Then the hydraulic brakes are put into operation.

Fuel consumption per 100 km for Porsche 918 Spyder

In the mixed cycle of the Porsche 918 Spider, it consumes 3.3 liters of fuel. When driving on the track, you can achieve a consumption of 2.9 liters. On city roads filled with transport, the fuel consumption of the Porshe 918 Spyder is kept within 4 liters.

These indicators are achievable with the correct use of all the electrical capabilities of the hybrid cyclone. With an aggressive ride at high speeds, when the entire car system is in use, you should expect a consumption in the range of 6-7 liters of fuel.

To reduce the consumption of fuel, there are several methods:

Charge the battery promptly.
Switch to electric mode at low speeds or in narrow areas.
For free long distances, use the Sport Hybrid mode — it will allow you to feel the dynamics of the car and save fuel.
Don’t forget about recycling.

Acceleration from 0 to 100 y Porsche 918 Spyder, maximum speed

The maximum speed is 345 km / h. The Porsche 918 Spyder accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds (Race Hybrid mode). When operating in the economy mode, the figures are quite modest — about 7 seconds.

Battery Porshe 918 Spyder, its pecypc and run time on one charge

A lithium-ion battery has been installed under the floor of the car. It is equipped with liquid cooling. Information about her a little. It is known that the index of stored energy is 6.8 kWh.

Important! The placement of the VVB close to the center in co-operation with the lightweight system components and the aerodynamic body made it possible to increase the operating power by the engine.

You can charge the battery through a household 220-volt network. Charging takes 4 hours. When using a stationary device, available for an additional card, the time will be reduced in 25 minutes.

Porsche 918 Spyder.

The average travel time on one charge is 25 km. Depending on the driving conditions, it varies from 16 to 31 km of path.

Developers give 7 years of warranty for uninterrupted operation of the battery.
Drive on the road

The Porsche 918 Spyder features lightweight and comfortable handling. To the monocoque mounts the front and rear aluminum sidebars and the independent suspension (in front — a two-lever, and at the rear — multi-link)

Aerodynamic design, minimum frontal resistance and high clamping force ensure stability and soundness of the car at higher speeds. Turns go on one breath, and on the line track the car as it takes off over the road. At the rear suspension, servo drives are installed, which track the rotation with the angle of inclination of the front wheels and allow the rear to be turned off. The maximum slope angle is 3º.

Winter operation

Cypercap from Porsche, as well as other similar models, is not intended for heavy motor vehicles. At a low temperature, it will work, but control on the snowy roads will drop. Reduces the travel time to the electric power. With prolonged use in freeze from -15ºC, the battery may degrade. Seat and steering wheel heater optionally available.
