Boom! It’s a cannon shot … or a plane going through the sound barrier. Entrepreneur Blake Scholl launched Boom Technology in 2014 in pursuit of a dream, relaunching the epic of civilian supersonic, eleven years after the abrupt end of the Concorde adventure. He is not an aeronautical engineer, has not yet flown any plane, but he has just won the contract of the century. The airline United Airlines has just placed an order for 15 supersonic planes (and 35 others optional), capable in 2030 of taking 88 passengers from New York to London in three and a half hours. Twice as fast as with a conventional airliner.

Read the review: “Concorde, the supersonic dream”, story of a ruinous adventure

So, while the atmosphere of these post-Covid times pushes many city dwellers to find long time, proximity and a less furious and more ecological way of life, some are taking up the speed race of the 1980s. Poitiers, Léonore Moncond’huy, caused a sensation in March by asserting that aeronautics should no longer be part of a child’s dreams. Obviously, this is not the case for everyone.

A very wealthy clientele

United Airlines is seriously considering creating regular lines between America and Europe or Japan, all the same intended for a very wealthy clientele. Because, after twenty years of racing for low prices, performance will be expensive. Especially since Blake Scholl promises that his plane, called Overture, will be neutral in terms of CO emissions2, through the use of biofuels. A luxury market which is not the priority of Boeing and Airbus but that the UBS bank estimates to be able to reach 160 billion dollars in 2040. Japan Airlines has also invested in Boom. The prototype will make its first flight within a year.

In 1986, the Italian food critic Carlo Petrini, offended to see a McDonald’s restaurant set up on the famous piazza di Spagna in Rome, created the “slow food” movement, a more peaceful, closer, ecological and qualitative way of eating. facing the ravages of fast food. Slowness assumed against a world in too much of a hurry, as in the past when Paul Lafargue, in 1880, claimed the right to laziness. This tension is expressed today around environmental issues. Should we make our fast food restaurants, our cars and our planes greener, with new technologies, or put them away in the garage and change society? Meanwhile, it is likely that in 2030 we will be careful, in Boom planes, to serve organic vegetables to the happy passengers.

Viva Technology, the biggest tech and start-up event in Europe, will take place in “phygital” from June 16 to 19, 2021: one foot in the Porte de Versailles exhibition center in Paris, the other in the digital platform. Like 13,000 start-ups from 125 countries, the French delegation from the Southern Region will present its 37 young shoots during the event.

Even if Viva Tech is renewed, the pandemic changes some rules of the game: start-ups will have to alternate between face-to-face at the show (two days) and digital (two days). Nevertheless, it will be possible to “network” during the four days, until the end of November thanks to digital support.

An important event for the South Region

“In 2016, we were the first region to participate in Viva Tech. We believed in it from the start ” declares Françoise Bruneteaux, vice-president of the Southern Region in charge of the digital economy and new technologies, during the press conference on May 25 (see also our previous article). This year, she believes that “Viva Tech’s themes are in perfect harmony with the Region’s strategy and core investment” which is betting on focusing on four of them: technology for the environment, mobility-energy, connectivity-5G and then health-well-being.

Out of 120 projects, 37 start-ups were selected for Viva Tech, 32 of which are participating for the first time. As evoked by Vincent Violain, the director of partnerships at Viva Tech, the primary vocation of the event “Is business-centric” to allow start-ups to show off, attract investors and arouse the interest of the public or future partners. With a network of 3,300 investors announced, the South Region “Must attract foreign investment and come and seek the talents of others” enthuses Françoise Bruneteaux.

The 13 metropolitan start-ups at Viva Tech

NepTech (Aix-en-Provence)

In the phase of a fundraising of 1.2 million euros, NepTech is making a place for itself in bluetech. Its electric propulsion catamaran of 12 by 24 meters, wants to answer “To the problems of congestion and pollution in urban centers” explains Tanguy Goetz, one of the three co-founders. The start-up offers a modular platform of electric ships that comes in three finishes: the NepShuttle (regular passenger transport), the NepCargo (freight transport) and the NepYacht (tourist / leisure transport) that can carry up to 150 passengers or twenty tonnes of goods. Already labeled GreenTech by the Ministry of Ecological Transition and resident at the Arbois nursery, NepTech will take advantage of Viva Tech to promote its 2.5-meter prototype.

Chargepoly, labeled Cap Énergie and Asad Sud-Est, is developing fast, smart and optimized charging stations for electric vehicle fleets. Chargepoly’s Multi-VE Station is designed for “Process fast charging in the same place according to an intelligent priority schedule” indicates Hadi Moussavi, the creator. He continues that ” this solution is important for communities ” because it can recharge a vehicle in 15 minutes minimum and half an hour maximum. The young company announces that it wants to raise 800,000 euros in equity funds (process over a few months).

Erylon (Aix-en-Provence)

Clean-Kong robots (Credit: DR)

Erylon is developing the first industrial glass facade cleaning robot called “Clean-Kong”. Knowing that the number of glazed buildings increases by 20% each year, the start-up can be optimistic. Clean-Kong was designed with an ecological concern since it consumes only three liters of pure water per 100 m2, and with a societal concern because it avoids employee exposure to work at height.

Maca (Aix-en-Provence)

After attending CES Las Vegas 2021, Maca returns to Viva Tech with his hydrogen powered vehicle. The Aix-based start-up, which has been developing its prototype for three years, had planned the release of its prototype (scale 1/3 to 2.5 meters) at the end of 2021 with a fundraising of 300,000 euros which is underway. Viva Tech will be the opportunity for Maca to present the machine in virtual reality: “With their laptop, people will be able to inspect the machine” indicates the co-founder Thierry de Boisvilliers to Gomet ‘.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(2710) "

At first glance, the Illumine, the newest creation from Neunaber Technology, doesn’t quite look like a traditional stompbox. Its fairly compact chassis accommodates a screen, two foot switches and only two knobs. The pedal has no less than 17 reverb algorithms, from the most classic (Plate, Room), to the most stellar. The pedal comes with fifty factory presets carefully crafted by the brand so you can use the pedal right out of the box. Fifty other locations are available to store your own presets. The preset management software allows you to organize all this as well as possible.

The pedal is stereo input and output and integrates the MIDI protocol on TRS mini-jack plugs. Another mini-jack plug allows you to use an expression pedal with the Illumine. However, the brand has equipped its pedal with a very well thought-out expression engine and you can, thanks to the A / B foot switch, switch from one preset to another by varying the transition time. The audio engine that generates and processes the reverb algorithms is obviously digital, but the signal is routed from input to output without conversion. Depending on the brand, this allows one to overcome latency and maintain the integrity of the audio signal.

Illumine Reverb

Illumine can be used with Line or Instrument levels thanks to its adjustable gain level which is well thought out.

Finally, a big advantage of Illumine and not the least, the pedal consumes 100mA which is very little for a reverb. Made in California at Neunaber Technology’s premises, Illumine will be available at the end of August for a special price of $ 379. The latter will then be $ 479.

However, the brand has equipped its pedal with a very well thought-out expression engine and you can, thanks to the A / B foot switch, switch from one preset to another by varying the transition time. The audio engine that generates and processes the reverb algorithms is obviously digital, but the signal is routed from input to output without conversion. Depending on the brand, this allows one to overcome latency and maintain the integrity of the audio signal.

Illumine Reverb

Illumine can be used with Line or Instrument levels thanks to its adjustable gain level which is well thought out.

Finally, a big advantage of Illumine and not the least, the pedal consumes 100mA which is very little for a reverb. Made in California at Neunaber Technology’s premises, Illumine will be available at the end of August for a special price of $ 379. The latter will then be $ 479.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(7937) "

Like many companies in France which supply company vehicles to some of their employees, Cheops Technology is gradually electrifying its fleet. Its history with the electric car, however, goes back a little further.

At Cheops Technology, more than 500 employees are spread over a dozen agencies across France. Specializing in secure IT infrastructures, the company provides 140 of its employees with a vehicle that they can use 24/7 for their professional and personal activities.

Diesel and gasoline models are gradually being phased out in favor of electrified engines. The management set an example very early on, not hesitating to use electricity as a reward to motivate salespeople.

An electric as a reward

« What did I do wrong to deserve this! “. This is what employees of communities and companies could give up more than 15 years ago when they received a car or an electric utility within the framework of their work. It is true that the Renault Clio and Kangoo, Citroën Berlingo and Saxo, Peugeot 106 and Partner, equipped with nickel-cadmium batteries, were not very salivating.

The restricted speeds and the hard-to-achieve autonomy of 80 kilometers were experienced as very important constraints, even as punishments.

But in 2015, at Cheops Technology, under the leadership of Nicolas Leroy-Fleuriot, a leader seduced by the first truly convincing electric and plug-in hybrids, salespeople could on the contrary feel a certain envy in front of such a prospect.

The loan of a Tesla Roadster

For the first time in 2015 at Cheops Technology, a Tesla Roadster was made available, for a month, to the salesperson who achieved the best figures. A challenge that lasted a few years.

« The Tesla remains a cute car, but electric vehicles are less rare today », Comments Françoise Fleuriot, head of the vehicle fleet. From now on, the company, whose head office is located in Canéjan, on the outskirts of Bordeaux, is gradually electrifying the cars handed over to its staff.

50 cars to be replaced in 2021

« This year, we have a big renewal to do. We rent our cars for a period of 3 years. Either with partner organizations of a manufacturer, or with Arval, which offers multi-brand offers », Confides Françoise Fleuriot.

« We have selected 26 petrol, diesel, hybrid – rechargeable or not – and electric models that our employees can choose from. There is a price threshold that must not be exceeded. Beyond that, the difference is deducted each month on the payslip She continues.

Chez Cheops Technology

« As simple hybrids, we offer the Toyota Yaris, C-HR, Corolla in estate or sedan, and Renault Clio. For rechargeable: Kia Niro, Seat Leon, Ford Kuga, Volkswagen Tiguan, and Skoda Octavia sedan or station wagon. On the electric side, we have the Mini Cooper SE, Hyundai Kona, Kia e-Niro, Peugeot e-2008 and Volkswagen ID.3 », List our interlocutor.

A compatibility to study

« We conduct a personalized study for each employee. An electric car can only be used under certain conditions: distance between home and business, use of highways, annual mileage carried out for the company and in a personal capacity, etc. », Reveals Françoise Fleuriot.

« We know that in a very short time we will no longer be able to use diesel in cities. Today, employees mainly choose hybrid models and plug-in hybrids. It’s the fear of getting stuck somewhere that dissuades them from going electric », She explains.

« The management has BMW i3 and i8. We have already delivered plug-in hybrid Volkswagen Tiguan which were offered to us at attractive conditions, as well as 3 or 4 electric Mini », She moderates.

The start of a conversion

« At Cheops Technology, we are in the early stages of converting our fleet. I only think good about the use of electric vehicles », Emphasizes the fleet manager. She still asks herself a few questions. Particularly concerning the recycling of batteries. She hopes the builders anticipate the subject.

« Even if motorists are still fearful, the switch to electric will accelerate. Those who have taken the plunge do not regret it at all. One of our employees goes to the head office every day from the Arcachon basin with an electric Mini. She is delighted. She takes the highway and considers that she has sufficient range with this car. Another, living in the suburbs of Bordeaux, chose the same model which also suits his situation She cites as an example.

Rental companies still on the reserve

« In the head office car park, we have just installed 6 new upgradeable 7 kW terminals, in addition to the 2 already existing Says Françoise Fleuriot.

« Long-term rental companies are still on the fence about electric and plug-in hybrid cars. Their prices remain high for these models. This can be understood, because after 3 years of rental, they will take back the vehicles and will have to find outlets for them. », She believes. ” Maybe next year they will be more confident. What will likely be felt on their offers She hopes.

Automobile Propre and I would like to thank Françoise Fleuriot for the time taken to answer our questions. A big thank you also to Benjamin Servan who proposed the subject to us and facilitated the connection with Cheops Technology.

["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(11746) "

Commercially, construction includes a list of products to benefit from databases, data management tools, datawarehousing, analytics, some machine learning capabilities, IoT services and especially development tools.

Continuation of the article below

Technically, the Business Technology Platform, formerly known as the SAP Cloud Platform, is a PaaS hosted by cloud providers. It is therefore the place of reception of the types of services listed above, to be found in the SAP Discovery Center interface. The German publisher presents construction as the space where customers can deploy innovative applications. But it is also a PaaS to host personalized extensions, specific ones, existing or not.

For companies coming from ECC, this is a big change, as they must move from a monolithic approach to a decoupled architecture, or even microservices. “We have an organizational impact to anticipate. Today, everything is included in the same block. Tomorrow, I have several blocks to which I must associate skills, and I must change from one monolithic approach to another based on data, ”considers Gianmaria Perancin, president of USF, the French users’ club SAP.

SAP BTP: three development environments + 1

Because if certain services are sometimes ready to use and connect directly to S4 / HANA, others are bricks from which to draw to develop the applications of a company. In this case, SAP has several development environments from the BTP Cockpit. The oldest is called NEO. This is a proprietary BTP branch hosted on SAP data centers, thought of as a “PaaS enterprise”. It is dedicated to the development of HTML 5 applications (via the SAPUI5 or OpenUI5 framework), Java and SAP HANA extended application services (SAP HANA XS). Neo executes part of the services present on the Discovery Center catalog, and above all makes it possible to orchestrate applications on Java servers, on virtual machines. Its access depends on a different sub-account from the rest of the development platform.

The Cloud Foundry environment is open source, and was chosen by SAP precisely to replace the old NEO on cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCP, Azure, Alibaba Cloud). Cloud Foundry can host the runtimes of ABAP, Java and JavaScript applications (via Node.js), but also PHP, Go, Ruby, .Net Core, etc. via buildpacks. Added to this is, the Kyma environment, an open source project designed to extend the capabilities of CF with containerized microservices and Python or Node.js (FaaS, Serverless) functions in Kubernetes clusters. Finally, the new kid is called “ABAP environment” and relies on the same Cloud Foundry space.

“In the Cloud Foundry environment, you can create a new space for ABAP development. This is what we call the ABAP environment. It allows you to create extensions for ABAP-based products, such as SAP S / 4HANA Cloud, and to develop new cloud applications. You can transform existing custom code based on ABAP or extensions to the cloud, ”the documentation reads.

The Cloud Foundry, Kyma and ABAP environments form the “Multi-Cloud Foundation”. If the publisher does not really mention the term, surely not to offend cloud providers, this multicloud approach is nevertheless in the SAP roadmap. Moreover, CF and Kyma are more tolerant of “non-SAP” services and developments. For customers who deploy S / 4HANA on-premise, access to the Business Technology Platform is remote, after setting up a secure tunnel to avoid blocking the firewall (yes, S4 / HANA is possibly hybrid ).

BTP, the home of specifics with RISE with SAP

However, the Business Technology Platform takes on a strong importance within the framework of the single contract proposed with RISE with SAP. So, what does the German publisher recommend for those who would like to migrate their specifics to the edge of S4 / HANA Cloud?

First of all, it will be necessary to go through the suite of “Readiness Check” tools, and this as early as possible in the preparation of the migration, recommends the publisher. Readiness Check lists the active business functions of an existing system in order to identify those compatible with S / 4HANA. It recommends the most relevant Fiori applications, reveals the integrations impacted by the migration, indicates the solutions adapted to the company’s activity, lists the compatible add-ons and provides access to Custom Code Migration.

Custom Code Migration is a custom code migration tool that must either be attached to an S / 4HANA test environment, or to the ABAP environment within the construction industry. Custom Code Migration is included in the RISE with SAP offer and makes it possible to migrate existing extensions and modify them in BTP, consuming the credits associated with BTP in the contract.

“Clean Core”: SAP wants to protect its standard code

SAP’s primary goal is not to ensure perfect compatibility of existing specifications with S / 4HANA. The publisher wants its customers to apply the “Clean Core” approach.

The concept of “Clean Core” aims to rid S4 / HANA as much as possible of personalized code. From now on, SAP wants us not to touch its engine.

“In practical terms, keeping the kernel clean (Clean Core) means enforcing a zero or minimal modification policy from the start. In short, do not change the standard SAP code, as this locks up the system for system updates and upgrades, and increases the effort of test and upgrade cycles. Try to stay close to the standard and for differentiated / unique business needs, use whitelisted APIs for extensions, to incorporate custom code, ”the SAP documentation reads.

However, we also understand that it is always possible to move away from the SAP standard, especially with private cloud editions: it is simply strongly discouraged.

A migration of specifics to be planned a year in advance

Custom Code Migration is therefore primarily aimed at detecting incompatible and unused SAP ERP code elements.

“SAP recommends collecting usage data in your production systems at least one year prior to your SAP S / 4HANA conversion project, using ABAP Call Monitor and SUSG. ”

Olga DolinskajaProduct manager, ABAP Platform, SAP

“Our statistics for the last 15 years show that 30-60% of the custom code in a production SAP ERP system is not executed, a considerable part can be replaced by the standard SAP code during the conversion of the system. Removing obsolete code will greatly reduce the costs associated with adapting and maintaining custom code in the future. At the same time, it is certainly a first step towards the Clean Core, ”writes Olga Dolinskaja, Product Manager, ABAP Platform, at SAP.

“Identifying unused custom code begins with understanding its usage in customer production environments. SAP therefore recommends collecting usage data in your production systems at least one year prior to your SAP S / 4HANA conversion project, using ABAP Call Monitor and SUSG. […] She adds.

Custom Code Migration should also help identify the custom code to be simplified and verify whether a “standard” equivalent exists. Once the scan is complete, the removal of the “obsolete” code is done through Custom Code Migration or SAP Software Update Manager.

After migration, the code can finally be simplified via the “Quick Fixes” function in ABAP development Tools (ADT) for Eclipse. SAP promises “up to 60% automation for the most frequent simplifications”.

In this paradigm, the lift and shift approach, even for those who have opted for S / 4HANA on site, is no longer recommended.

“There are a number of ways to do this, such as removing the old business logic, redesigning your custom applications using the extensibility of SAP S / 4HANA, or considering the SAP BTP transformation for tailor-made custom extensions. cowardly, ”says Olga Dolinskaja. “Of course, this is a challenge and it will cost you time and effort, but those efforts will pay off in future updates to SAP S / 4HANA and the transformation to SAP BTP.”

A fifth isolated environment of S / 4HANA, an alternative under development

However, SAP is well aware that certain applications or certain extensions are closely linked to the SAP standard. As “classic” extensibility is not supported in S / 4HANA Cloud, you need an environment other than BTP (corresponding to a “Side by Side” extensibility, sic) for these less decoupled programs.

“Starting in 2021, SAP plans to offer an additional extensibility option as part of SAP S / 4HANA and SAP S / 4HANA Cloud to complement the current extensibility capabilities of key users (in-app),” informs the guide dedicated to the implementation of SAP custom code.

The extensibility option provided for (on-stack) developers must meet the requirements of ABAP programmers who would like to maintain their custom applications while respecting the notion of “clean core”.

“Technically, this will allow you to develop custom extensions on the same ABAP platform that is used by the SAP S / 4HANA instance or the SAP S / 4HANA Cloud tenant. A clear separation between custom code and standard code is achieved by adopting the RESTful ABAP application programming model based on CDS views and an optimized ABAP, ”envision the authors.

If such a development environment emerges, it could probably be suitable for customers coming from ECC, since they will be able to reuse part of their business logic from their SAP ERP system. The publisher cautions that more traditional ABAP features such as transactions and SAP GUI programs will not be available.

Commercially, construction includes a list of products to benefit from databases, data management tools, datawarehousing, analytics, some machine learning capabilities, IoT services and especially development tools.

Continuation of the article below

Technically, the Business Technology Platform, formerly known as the SAP Cloud Platform, is a PaaS hosted by cloud providers. It is therefore the place of reception of the types of services listed above, to be found in the SAP Discovery Center interface. The German publisher presents construction as the space where customers can deploy innovative applications. But it is also a PaaS to host personalized extensions, specific ones, existing or not.

For companies coming from ECC, this is a big change, as they must move from a monolithic approach to a decoupled architecture, or even microservices. “We have an organizational impact to anticipate. Today, everything is included in the same block. Tomorrow, I have several blocks to which I must associate skills, and I must change from one monolithic approach to another based on data, ”considers Gianmaria Perancin, president of USF, the French users’ club SAP.

SAP BTP: three development environments + 1

Because if certain services are sometimes ready to use and connect directly to S4 / HANA, others are bricks from which to draw to develop the applications of a company. In this case, SAP has several development environments from the BTP Cockpit. The oldest is called NEO. This is a proprietary BTP branch hosted on SAP data centers, thought of as a “PaaS enterprise”. It is dedicated to the development of HTML 5 applications (via the SAPUI5 or OpenUI5 framework), Java and SAP HANA extended application services (SAP HANA XS). Neo executes part of the services present on the Discovery Center catalog, and above all makes it possible to orchestrate applications on Java servers, on virtual machines. Its access depends on a different sub-account from the rest of the development platform.

The Cloud Foundry environment is open source, and was chosen by SAP precisely to replace the old NEO on cloud infrastructure (AWS, GCP, Azure, Alibaba Cloud). Cloud Foundry can host the runtimes of ABAP, Java and JavaScript applications (via Node.js), but also PHP, Go, Ruby, .Net Core, etc. via buildpacks. Added to this is, the Kyma environment, an open source project designed to extend the capabilities of CF with containerized microservices and Python or Node.js (FaaS, Serverless) functions in Kubernetes clusters. Finally, the new kid is called “ABAP environment” and relies on the same Cloud Foundry space.

“In the Cloud Foundry environment, you can create a new space for ABAP development. This is what we call the ABAP environment. It allows you to create extensions for ABAP-based products, such as SAP S / 4HANA Cloud, and to develop new cloud applications. You can transform existing custom code based on ABAP or extensions to the cloud, ”the documentation reads.

The Cloud Foundry, Kyma and ABAP environments form the “Multi-Cloud Foundation”. If the publisher does not really mention the term, surely not to offend cloud providers, this multicloud approach is nevertheless in the SAP roadmap. Moreover, CF and Kyma are more tolerant of “non-SAP” services and developments. For customers who deploy S / 4HANA on-premise, access to the Business Technology Platform is remote, after setting up a secure tunnel to avoid blocking the firewall (yes, S4 / HANA is possibly hybrid ).

BTP, the home of specifics with RISE with SAP

However, the Business Technology Platform takes on a strong importance within the framework of the single contract proposed with RISE with SAP. So, what does the German publisher recommend for those who would like to migrate their specifics to the edge of S4 / HANA Cloud?

First of all, it will be necessary to go through the suite of “Readiness Check” tools, and this as early as possible in the preparation of the migration, recommends the publisher. Readiness Check lists the active business functions of an existing system in order to identify those compatible with S / 4HANA. It recommends the most relevant Fiori applications, reveals the integrations impacted by the migration, indicates the solutions adapted to the company’s activity, lists the compatible add-ons and provides access to Custom Code Migration.

Custom Code Migration is a custom code migration tool that must either be attached to an S / 4HANA test environment, or to the ABAP environment within the construction industry. Custom Code Migration is included in the RISE with SAP offer and makes it possible to migrate existing extensions and modify them in BTP, consuming the credits associated with BTP in the contract.

“Clean Core”: SAP wants to protect its standard code

SAP’s primary goal is not to ensure perfect compatibility of existing specifications with S / 4HANA. The publisher wants its customers to apply the “Clean Core” approach.

The concept of “Clean Core” aims to rid S4 / HANA as much as possible of personalized code. From now on, SAP wants us not to touch its engine.

“In practical terms, keeping the kernel clean (Clean Core) means enforcing a zero or minimal modification policy from the start. In short, do not change the standard SAP code, as this locks up the system for system updates and upgrades, and increases the effort of test and upgrade cycles. Try to stay close to the standard and for differentiated / unique business needs, use whitelisted APIs for extensions, to incorporate custom code, ”the SAP documentation reads.

However, we also understand that it is always possible to move away from the SAP standard, especially with private cloud editions: it is simply strongly discouraged.

A migration of specifics to be planned a year in advance

Custom Code Migration is therefore primarily aimed at detecting incompatible and unused SAP ERP code elements.

“SAP recommends collecting usage data in your production systems at least one year prior to your SAP S / 4HANA conversion project, using ABAP Call Monitor and SUSG. ”

Olga DolinskajaProduct manager, ABAP Platform, SAP

“Our statistics for the last 15 years show that 30-60% of the custom code in a production SAP ERP system is not executed, a considerable part can be replaced by the standard SAP code during the conversion of the system. Removing obsolete code will greatly reduce the costs associated with adapting and maintaining custom code in the future. At the same time, it is certainly a first step towards the Clean Core, ”writes Olga Dolinskaja, Product Manager, ABAP Platform, at SAP.

Morgan

Probablemente sea justo decir que cuando la mayoría de nosotros pensamos en un vehículo todoterreno especialmente diseñado, generalmente no pensamos en un Morgan. Después de todo, los Morgan son pequeños y pintorescos autos deportivos británicos que parecen recién salidos de la década de 1930, ninguno de los cuales sería propicio para el uso fuera de la carretera. Excepto que ahora hay un Morgan llamado Plus Four CX-T y todavía pintoresco y aún británico, pero ahora está listo para dejar el pavimento atrás.

El CX-T, que Morgan debutó el jueves, se basa en el Modelo Plus Four, que a su vez se basa en la nueva arquitectura de chasis de aluminio adherido de Morgan denominada CX (¿porque la empresa tiene 110 años y los números romanos son una cosa?). Su parentesco Plus 4 significa que está equipado con un motor de cuatro cilindros turboalimentado de 2.0 litros de origen BMW que está acoplado a una transmisión manual.

Bien, entonces, ¿dónde comienza a diferenciarse el CX-T del modelo en el que se basa? Para empezar, la suspensión es completamente diferente. Utiliza brazos de control del Morgan Plus Six, que cambia la geometría de la suspensión para ayudar a la articulación de las ruedas. También utiliza amortiguadores de EXE-TC enfocados en todoterreno con topes internos para ayudar a controlar la marcha. Los pasos de rueda de Morgan también se han cambiado para permitir un mayor recorrido de los neumáticos.

A continuación, hay una gran placa protectora en la parte delantera y rejillas de ventilación adicionales en la nariz. El motor respira, lo crea o no, a través de la bolsa de la maleta del lado derecho, que oculta un filtro de aire excepcionalmente resistente al polvo. La maleta del lado izquierdo contiene algunos de los equipos de recuperación del vehículo. El otro gran cambio todoterreno en el que insistió el socio técnico de Morgan para el proyecto, Rally Raid, es un diferencial trasero con bloqueo electrónico de los autos xDrive de BMW que se puede configurar para que se abra, se bloquee al 40% o se bloquee por completo.

Otros cambios exteriores incluyen una jaula exo que ayuda a albergar el juego de herramientas del vehículo, llantas de repuesto, estuches de almacenamiento y tablas de arena. Debajo de la jaula se encuentra un techo rígido extraíble. Al igual que otros Plus Fours, las ventanas laterales son extraíbles y hay disposiciones en la exo-jaula para sujetarlas cuando no están en uso. También montados en la jaula hay cuatro focos con cubiertas de cuero a medida.

En el interior, es en su mayoría Morgan Plus Four estándar, además de algunas bolsas personalizadas para alimentos y documentos. También hay una luz de mapa de estilo rally y los interruptores montados en el tablero para el diferencial.

Morgan planea construir ocho modelos CX-T, este automóvil inicial y siete automóviles de clientes, cada uno con un precio inicial equivalente a alrededor de $ 237,000. Planea tener los ocho vehículos completados antes de fines de 2021.
