Mustache and eyebrows, two icons of the design of the new Mercedes-Benz

Output of cars Mercedes-Benz, in addition to often brings the technology upgrade, also featuring a new design which later became icons of the automotive world. In Indonesia alone, the cars Mercy always gets a nickname based on physical characteristics and design of the exterior.

Call it Mercy New Eyes that became the name of the term for several models of the Mercedes-Benz 1995 output until the early 2000s the nickname refers to the shape of the four semi oval headlights replace headlight design box on previous generations. Recorded a five-segment cars, such as Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E-Class, G-Class, S-Class, SL-Class, and in that period adopted the design of the New Eyes.

Mustache and eyebrows, two icons of the design of the new Mercedes-Benz

Mid-2000s, the design of the Mercedes-Benz back got a refresher. A number of Variant that is popular in Indonesia appeared with the design of the headlights are still similar to New Eyes, but impressed. From there emerged the nickname Peanut Eyes of Mercy, because it forms a light house notched leather like peanuts.

Now in 2016, Mercedes-Benz presents new design characteristics, i.e. a mustache and eyebrows. It's just a nickname so catchy. The design of the headlights is Mercedes-Benz's latest output has not adopted the form of oval. "But back to design the boxes with sharp corners, although on some type of trapezoid shape still." Since 2012, he said, the manufacturer logo star is applying a sharp angles, light design on the model of the E-Class facelift, which followed A-Class, C-Class, and S-Class.

That model seems to be maintained until a few generations into the future. Today, Mercedes-Benz introduced its newest Sport Utility Vehicle, the New design adopts GLE headlight trapezoid. Mercedes-Benz of each product should have the characteristic that distinguishes with other brands.

According to Bauer, though it should have a special feature of the La Mercy, but every car variant required have the particularity of each. The designers are challenged to design a car that Benz if seen in dark conditions, people can instantly know that it's the Mercedes-Benz cars and the type.

Well, in later models the outputs of 2015 and 2016, in addition to the design of the headlights corners, Mercedes-Benz adds additional features namely a line-shaped LED lights melancip. "We call it the eyebrows." These eyebrows so new icon of Mercy. The eyebrows are placed above the main lights, designed to stay lit when the car is driven. In Europe and North America, turned on the lights of a car even though during the day (day light-running) is indeed already a liability.

Another characteristic that looks at new car automotive Mercy is the bar horizontal grill part of the ornamentation (a hole in the radiator) which is shaped like a mustache. Mercedes calls this grill bar with the name of the Louvre. Ornament grille, it is often used as a trademark brand of car. BMW for example that maintains the design of split-kidney (kidney-shaped hole at the two spout) on their cars since the first till now.

Mustache Mercy later was designed differently on each class. For the G-Class, we design this grill ornament shaped thick so impressed dashing and assertive. But in other classes, decorations that mustache there made thinner. The numbers vary. Anyway every Mercedes-Benz car must have had similar design line

At Mitsubishi, the record efficiency for Japan market is quite seductive, i.e. in the range of 30 km per liter.

However, Nissan found inconsistent data, even though both are the same car.

After this, the news agency of the Environmental Protection Agency (United States), according to ABC News, conducted an investigation to ascertain whether the same problem applies to sales in other countries.

As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to register the car with a three-cylinder engine that's at the level of fuel efficiency of approximately 18 km per liter.

The car is only 660 cc engine capacity itself than in the factory of Mitsubishi's Mizushima, Okayama.

As much as car 157,000 are products of Mitsubishi eK wagons and eK Space, whereas 468,000 units labelled with Nissan Roox Dayz and Dayz.

Shell Created 550 Kg of energy-efficient Car 34 Percent

To significantly reduce energy use in the sector of transport highways, Shell finally introduced the urban ready concept car produced. The car has a capacity of three passenger harnesses cutting-edge technology available today through a process of "co-engineering". In the process, the body of the car, the design of the engine, and the engine oil is made collectively.

This new car is the fruit of collaboration between engineering co-designers of vehicles, engines, and world's leading lubricants, who designed the third element of the vehicle-specific to work optimally together.

The results of independent testing and research on the life cycle of the vehicle showed that the Shell concept car will be able to save primary energy amounted to 34 per cent throughout her life cycle when compared to urban car in General that there is in the United Kingdom
Shell Created 550 Kg of energy-efficient Car 34 Percent
The concept car Shell only requires about 50 percent of the energy required to produce and operate a small family car that was commonly used in the United Kingdom and 31 per cent of the energy required a common SUV vehicles available in the United Kingdom.

The Shell concept car was the result of a total overhaul of the design of urban car Gordon Murray t. 25 production in 2010 at the time using production prototype Shell Oil to improve its energy efficiency.

This project is an important achievement in the field of automotive engineering. I feel proud of the achievement of top scientists and their partners from the Geo Technology and Gordon Murray Design. The insights gained from this project will change the way our point of view against the use of energy in the transport sector of the highway.

Energy use and climate change is a serious problem in the community. This project proved that if we use the technology of today with the best, up-to-date knowledge about including lubricants, we are able to produce a significant impact of the use of energy while reducing CO2 emissions.

In the making of this car, a holistic approach is applied to reduce energy by focusing on material selection design of engine capacity downsizing, massively so that less energy is needed, and process transfers energy to the more simple and efficient thanks to the engine design and the innovative lubricant formulations in order to minimize the negative effects of energy consumption during the whole life cycle.

Car fuel consumption have been measured using a variety of protocols of test vehicle that includes a steady state or urban driving style. Sample test results among other things indicate the level of fuel consumption at a steady state 2.64 liters/100 km, 38km/liter, or 89.1 miles/gallon US at the speed of 70 km/h and a decrease in emissions by 4, 67 g of CO2/km based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) thanks to the use of a lubricant that specially designed, or the equivalent of an increase in fuel efficiency by 5 percent compared with the standard engine oil that is commonly available in the United Kingdom.

The Shell concept car tested independently certified automotive test facilities in the United Kingdom and a number of cars compared to others who have similar conditions to measure the fuel economy and CO2 emissions. In an official NEDC test, Shell concept car produces lower CO2 emissions compared to gasoline-fuelled urban car (28 percent) and hybrid (32 percent).

Based on the platform iStreamâ of Gordon Murray Design which has been patented, the Shell concept car symbolizes the radical overhaul in terms of design, development, and production of the car. This car combines cutting-edge technologies new lightweight, namely 550kg and manufactured of materials with a low carbon footprint and energy are chosen carefully.

This car may be small, but it has enormous potential. We want to accelerate the progress of discussions about how we could make the highway vehicles more energy efficient and low carbon. Therefore, in the next few weeks and months to come, we intend to share the results of the research project with the designer of the engine, the car manufacturers, academics, and other experts in the field of automotive.
