ELECTRIC CARS

YangWang U9, the powerful electric supercar that "jumps" and travels on three wheels

Chinese car manufacturer BYD has declared its intention to challenge Tesla in the electric car market. In January, it announced the creation of a new brand dedicated to the production of luxury cars, including the YangWang U9, details of which are increasingly being released. This supercar will have a zero-emission powertrain with over 1,000 hp, allowing it to reach 100 km/h in less than 2 seconds and a range of around 700 km.

What is amazing about this car is the active suspension system, called Disus-X, described as the most sophisticated in the world. A video posted on BYD Global's Twitter profile shows the car capable of travelling even without a wheel, thanks to Disus-C technology, capable of adjusting the damping of the air damper by acting on the solenoid valve.

The Disus-A system acts on the car's ground clearance, with a range of 15 centimetres. Disus-P, on the other hand, is 'the first hydraulic control system for the entire car and acts on various parameters, allowing the car to make real leaps'. In one video, the YangWang U9 even manages to jump by lifting itself a few centimetres off the ground.

The Disus-C, Disus-A and Disus-P system
The Disus-C system makes it possible to adjust the damping of the air damper by acting on the solenoid valve, while the Disus-A system acts on the ground clearance with a range of 15 centimetres. The Disus-P system, on the other hand, represents the 'first hydraulic control system for the entire car' and is able to act on various parameters so quickly that the car can make real leaps, allowing it to lift all four wheels simultaneously by a few centimetres.

30 months of development
BYD developed the Disus-X system over 30 months and travelled 10 million kilometres to test its endurance. The technology, which can be improved via software with over-the-air updates, has passed the toughest endurance tests.
