Porsche’s new development makes winter driving safer and easierJanuary 3, 2020
Almost every winter turns into a real test for drivers. Not every car can take a turn on a snowy road at high speed – all the more without additional driver efforts. Porsche decided to fix this problem with the new transmission system, which independently regulates the rotation speed of each wheel of the electric car.
Representatives of the company said that the power plant showed itself perfectly when cornering on a snowy road at a speed of 80 km / h. At the same time, the car seemed to move on rails, adjusting the trajectory unnoticed by the driver. Porsche engineers explained this by the fact that the system independently monitors the adhesion to the surface and, if necessary, changes the torque of each wheel individually, as the electric car is equipped with four independent engines – two more than in the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.
The new system works in fractions of a second – the sensor constantly monitors the current speed, angle of rotation and tilt of the machine without additional cameras or sensors. Impact on engines occurs exclusively with the help of software that has been calibrated over two seasons.
Experts suggest that Porsche uses a new transmission system to produce the next-generation Macan, an all-electric crossover that is expected to be released in 2021. The company can also integrate the power plant in the upcoming Taycan Cross Turismo, as well as in the model of the future revision of the Cayenne. Representatives of the concern have not yet disclosed plans to introduce new technology.
