Khodrocar - Numbers are all around us – whether we're breaking down the performance of a Ferrari 488, or comparing the price of a Model S to a Mercedes. Every week we pick out a few numbers that are so significant we have to give them a second look. Today we’re looking at key figures from General Motors, Jaguar, and Koenigsegg.
The driving range, in miles, of the General Motors Surus concept. It’s a fuel-cell-powered truck platform that GM hopes will be useful for military, cargo delivery, and other uses. GM says the vehicle can drive both on- and off-road, and will be 16.5 feet long and 7.5 feet wide, with four-wheel steering and autonomous capabilities.
The temperature, in Fahrenheit, at a test center in Sweden where a Jaguar XF Sportbrake towed a skier to 117 miles per hour. The record-breaking stunt was designed to show off the all-wheel-drive system and electric stability control fitted to Jag’s XF wagon – in a situation that very few real customers will experience.
By how much time, in seconds, the Koenigsegg Agera RS beat the Bugatti Chiron’s 0 to 249 to 0 mile-per-hour time. The run took the Agera RS just 36.44 seconds, crushing the Bugatti’s 41.96-second feat. Not that Chiron owners should feel bad: both figures are truly incredible performance statistics.
The number of miles the Land Rover Range Rover Sport P400e will be able to drive on electricity alone. A plug-in hybrid, the new model can hit 85 mph in electric mode or 137 mph when combining the outputs of the motor and the turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine. A full battery charge will take as little as 2 hours and 45 minutes.
