It's also got a lower drag coefficient than any other EV on the market.
Its bigger size, dynamic design, and reduced drag coefficient are but a few of its distinctive characteristics.
Figure 10 describes how optimizing the variables changed lift and drag coefficient. It is noted that flap 1 gap had the highest contribution to the lift coefficient increase, where the final L/D ratio is 41.9.
Mercedes claims is a production-car world-record-low drag coefficient of 0.22, which helps it go faster, boosts fuel economy, and makes it quieter.
It features a sleeker body with an improved drag coefficient. The 330i trim is powered by a new 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 255bhp and 295 pound-feet of torque.
The A-Class saloon is also laying claim to being the most aerodynamic model on the market with a drag coefficient less than that of the CLA Coupe which it is likely to replace.
With a drag coefficient of just 0.24, the Hyundai IONIQ delivers an exceptionally smooth ride and also features a responsive six-speed dual-clutch transmission, enabling quicker and more precise gear-shifting for a dynamic drive.
THERE HAS BEEN A LOT WRITTEN and said in periodicals, catalogs and online blogs within the last few years about ballistic coefficient (BC) and the use of drag coefficient (Cd) in the shooting sports.
The reduced drag coefficient helps make it more power efficient, but that's a shorter distance than your average semi can go on a full tank of fuel.
The drift models, although simpler than the drag coefficient approach, are usually only valid in the range of applicability for which they were obtained as they depend on flow and geometry.
where CL represents the lift coefficient and CD is the drag coefficient. Different from the output of EGF, the outputs of this model are lift and drag coefficients, while the inputs are the same as those of EGF.
