Kiera Shaw BMW, 2017-11-04 19:54:23. The BMW Digital Charging Service brings customers the future of charging, today. BMW ConnectedDrive and the BMW ConnectedDrive Portal turn charging into a digital experience. As a result, the BMW i3 and BMW i3s are integrated perfectly into the customer‘s smart ecosystem. This allows BMW customers to optimise charging costs, make best use of self-generated solar energy for charging and even earn money through integration into the smart grid. The service‘s ease of use - from a smartphone via BMW Connected or from PCs and tablets via the BMW ConnectedDrive Portal - also facilitates fully transparent, sustainable use of renewable energy. With the introduction of its unique BMW Digital Charging Service, BMW becomes the world‘s first carmaker to integrate electric mobility with its customers’ digital worlds.
Millie Lowe Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. Based on Honda global light truck platform, the 2018 Odyssey body structure has 44-percent greater torsional rigidity than the previous model. High-strength steel comprises 58 percent of the body structure, contributing to both improved stiffness and reduced mass for the unit-body. Stiffening the body with ultra-high-strength steel, hot-stamped steel and adhesives in critical areas likewise directly contribute to reduced noise and vibration, and improved ride and handling. The structural improvements also help reduce mass, directly contributing to increased fuel efficiency.
Kiera Shaw Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:27. In a first for Odyssey, Honda Active Shutter Grille system located below the front bumper reduces aerodynamic drag especially at cruising speeds, directly helping to improve fuel efficiency. Included on all 2018 Odyssey trims, the system uses an electric actuator controlled by a processor that tracks major temperature parameters, including engine coolant and radiator temperatures, intake air temperature, transmission oil temperature and air-conditioning requirements, all of which can vary due to weather, road conditions, vehicle speed, throttle and gear positions, and towing activity. The system either opens or closes the four shutters simultaneously to control the amount of air flowing through the engine radiator and the air conditioner condenser. The system is designed to keep the shutters closed as much as possible - even in city driving.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. The 2018 Odyssey enhanced Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is the second generation of Honda proprietary ACE structural design. ACE is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes. It uses a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle, helping to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment. It can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash as well. ACE also helps reduce the chances that one vehicle will override or underride another, improving crash compatibility of vehicles that differ in size. ACE goes further by offering additional strength and protection in small overlap frontal collisions, which are among the most severe. Multiple material grades, including ultra-high-strength steel, are used in the Odyssey body construction to help optimize safety performance.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. The 2018 Honda Odyssey incorporates a wide range of halogen and light-emitting diode (LED) exterior lighting features. LED headlights are available for the first time, joining available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), available LED side mirror turn signals and LED taillights to provide the brightest and most visually distinctive array of Odyssey exterior lighting yet.
Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims have bright, distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL). A signature design feature of the new Odyssey, the DRLs utilize Honda characteristic wing shape positioned below and beside the low-beam headlights. Shaped to match the modern, elegant and athletic look of the new Odyssey, the LED DRL array tapers as it moves from the body side toward the inside of the headlight lens. Stylistically, the DRLs strongly and clearly define the front corners of the Odyssey.

Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. The Odyssey new engine - from the Honda EarthDreams® Technology powertrain series - is rated at 280 peak horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. peak torque. Peak engine output is up 32 horsepower and 12 pound-feet of torque from the previous model, with increased torque over the engine entire operating (rpm) range. The new, more efficient engine and transmissions, along with as much as a 75-pound reduction in vehicle weight (EX-L trim) and improved aerodynamics, among other reductions to running resistance, result in enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. With its 60-degree V-angle, the Odyssey V6 engine is inherently smooth and has compact overall dimensions that allow efficient packaging within the vehicle. The engine has a high-pressure die-cast lightweight aluminum alloy block with cast-in-place iron cylinder liners. Made with a centrifugal spin-casting process, the thin-wall liners are high in strength and low in porosity. The block incorporates a deep-skirt design with four bolts per bearing cap for rigid crankshaft support and minimized noise and vibration. The engine also uses a high-tensile strength steel crankshaft is for minimum weight.
