The Naturally Energetic Movement !

To create the motion from a source of energy,
to turn it into another one more useful thanks to an adequat device,
while having a good output and respecting the environment...


Such are the challenges that SYCOMOREEN finds.

Through these some web pages, we invite you to discover
 
patented innovations in the fields of thermal engines,
pumps, energies from wind and waters,
the photovoltaic or thermoelectric solar energies,
and special vehicles.


We thank you for your interest and wish you a nice visit.

If you wish to discuss or to ask a question, a free space of posting is offered you on the Mini Forum

To compare the Golf GTE with a Golf R ? No, seriously ??

Golf GTE85 PLUS Golf R

Testimony of a traveling nurse,
former owner of a Golf R 4 wheel drive, gasoline with 310 HP,
happy driver of a Golf GTE85, flexfuel with 235 HP

To compare the GTE with the R?
No, seriously ??
Let's go , I fix it !

The R is a sporty car, easy driving, and hard to put in default. It moves like on rails, sticked to the road, and follows the curves without difficulty at speeds that we dare not imagine. The motricity is perfect too, with its 4 wheel drive. But it is not a sliding-game car, it's reassuring sportiness. I think we're having more fun with a GTI.

For the GTE , to be a sporty car is not his vocation, it is already penalized by the weight of the batteries, but the location of them offers it a reliable behavior in dynamic driving, despite the lack of sport chassis, and its behaviour is much better than on a classic Golf 7 (clearly less roll in curves, it turns with almost flat axles).

But it is not for sportsmanship that we adopt the GTE, it is better go to a GTI for this aim, which is cheaper to buy (and in my opinion, a sporty car must have a mechanical gearbox, which is not available with a GTE).

With the R, you enjoy with a smile as soon as you turn the key, but you cry while visiting the stations for gasoline ...

I got 12L / 100 km on average. As I am driving 45 000 km / year, it was an impressive budget with the SP98 at 1.60 € / L : 720 € / month only for the fuel ...

With the GTE 85, you always smile while filling the tank ; my fuel budget (E85 + electricity) collapsed to less than 100 € / month.

In addition, there are other savings : with the R, 4 tires were used every 3 months, or 16 tires per year. With the GTE, 4 tires are enough for 6 months, either 8 tires a year. Thanks to the B mode (regenerative braking), we call very little for the brakes while anticipating, and the brake pads remain in good state : they are almost new after 80 000 km.

In summary !

Such a GTE which has been reprogrammed for the E85 is for me the perfect compromise between driving pleasure and optimized budget. If I want to break records of low consumption, I enjoy eco-driving and can make 2.5L / 100 km with the E85. If I want (or need for the work) to change for a dynamic motion, I switch to GTE mode and I got true driving pleasure, but the consumption is raising and exceeds 14L / 100 km. This car is really Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Véhicules reprogrammés par LR Performance SYCOMOREEN's commentaries : this itinerant nurse, a lover of sports car, has been inspired by the GTE85 PLUS prototype, to meet the best compromise for both professional and personal activities. The flexfuel reprogramming performed by LR Performance has been reused and even improved to reach a 235 HP engine, almost as much as a Golf GTI Performance. The E85 is for him both a financial and ecological advantage to power the vehicle, which can also stay in electric mode for short trips. We wish him a lucky road !
