Aurus is an brand made an important step towards the realization of their conventional cars on the market. In “Moscow-city” on 23 August opened a “Gallery Aurus,” but only in the beginning of September, Rosstandart issued the type approval of vehicles (cu Tr) for sedan Senat and his fellow Senat Limousine, in force since 31 August 2019. However, while the transport vehicle type approval applies to a batch of 150 copies. However, the Senate is already a place in the series.
Under the hood of the Senate is the motor US-4123, developed with the assistance of a partner, Porsche Engineering. This biturbomotor 4.4 with direct injection that develops 598 HP and 880 N•m. it helps the three-phase synchronous motor-a permanent magnet generator with maximum output of 46 kW (developed by US).
The electric motor receives power from the traction rechargeable lithium ion battery Enertech, located in the rear overhang. Her weight is 104 kg, the voltage of 250-350 V, and a capacity of 16 A•h With an average voltage of 300 work capacity 4.8 kWh, for classical hybrid without charging from the mains a lot. The combined impact of the system in the transport vehicle type approval does not appear, but last year at the presentation of the car surfaced the number of 660 HP and 1000 N•m. Also previously heard during acceleration to hundreds of the initial all-wheel drive, that is, three-ton version is 6.0 s.
All manufactured in the U.S. currently use nine-storyed “machine” of then company KATE all-wheel drive, but the cu Tr also announced the previously unheard “short” version with rear wheel drive. It is also the most easy — 2585 kg curb weight. A four-wheel drive sedans, depending on the modification have a mass of from 3035 kg (Senat sedan with the standard wheelbase, not armored, in the initial configuration) to 6340-6540 kg (armored limousine).
The price of the underlying Aurus Senat was announced in July. This is significantly higher than on the 469-horsepower four-liter Mercedes-Maybach S 560 4Matic, but less than asking for a Bentley Mulsanne V8 (motor 6.8, 512 HP). These models selected for comparison because close to a standard Senate wheelbase and length.
