Almost every winter turns into a real test for drivers. Not every car can pass a turn on a snow-covered road at high speed - especially without additional efforts of the driver. Porsche decided to fix this problem with a new transmission system that independently regulates the speed of each wheel of the electric car.
Representatives of the company reported that the power plant perfectly showed itself when passing turns on a snow-covered road at a speed of 80 km/h. At the same time, the car seemed to move along the rails, adjusting the trajectory unnoticed by the driver. Porsche engineers explained this by the fact that the system independently monitors the grip on the surface and, if necessary, changes the torque of each wheel separately since the electric car is equipped with four independent engines - two more than in the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.
The new system is triggered in a fraction of a second - the sensor constantly monitors the current speed, angle of rotation and tilt of the car without additional cameras or sensors. The impact on the engines is solely through software that has been calibrated for 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 Cayenne. Representatives of the concern have not yet disclosed plans to introduce new technology.
