Volkswagen Joins PichaEats to Feed the Less Fortunate

Volkswagen Picha

Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) and PichaEats, a Malaysian social enterprise committed to empowering the refugee community in Malaysia through its food business, recently teamed up to deliver a total of 280 meals to the less fortunate, in efforts to drive kindness this festive season.

The “Driving Kindness” convoy consisted of employees from Volkswagen and Picha, driving a Tiguan Allspace Highline and a Passat Elegance; and four classic Volkswagen cars – two Beetle cars and two Kombi vans driven by their owners who had volunteered for the project.

Volkswagen Picha

Recipients of the Driving Kindness campaign were Hiichiikok Foundation, Trinity Community Children’s Home, Lighthouse Children’s Welfare Home, Sunteck Handicap Welfare Home and Charis Sheep Pen Shelter, all located in Klang Valley. And as a show of support to frontliners, a total of 100 meals were delivered to the doctors and nurses at the Covid-19 testing station at Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

Volkswagen Picha

In the spirit of giving, five families and individuals were also presented with a PichaEats Christmas Family set. The respective parties were selected through a Facebook contest held from the 25th to 30th November, which called out to netizens to nominate those going through tough times and deserved a special meal as a show of love and appreciation.

Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM participated in the convoy and expressed his gratitude on the success of the project. “Christmas is the season of giving, and it is a privilege to be able to give back to the community and to the less fortunate. The year has been extremely challenging for everyone, and it is so important to stay connected, be kind and to give back whenever possible.”

Volkswagen Picha

“The Volkswagen group has been committed to aiding refugees via numerous social platforms since 2015, and here we are honoured to partner with the charismatic team at PichaEats, who are doing an amazing job creating opportunities for refugees in Malaysia.”

Volkswagen Picha

Kim Lim, CEO and co-founder of PichaEats added that the project was a clear reflection of Picha’s mission to drive kindness. “At PichaEats, we are all about making an impact.

Volkswagen PichaEats

For this Christmas and year end season, we especially wanted to emphasise the idea of bringing joy and spreading kindness to the community at large. It was a pleasure working with Volkswagen Malaysia to realise this, who were all-in for putting a smile on the faces of those who needed some good cheer.”

Volkswagen PichaEats

PichaEats, which is , has served over 250,000 meals cooked by people from refugee communities in Malaysia.

Volkswagen PichaEats

As Malaysia is currently not part of the United Nations Refugees Convention, refugees in the country are not recognized as asylum seekers and cannot be formally employed.

Volkswagen PichaEats

Through PichaEats, the refugee chefs prepare the food in their own homes in accordance to strict quality standards. With every meal ordered, 50 percent of sales goes to the chefs, while the other 50 percent goes to PichaEats to cover operation costs, logistics and packaging as we as reinvested into creating greater impact.

Volkswagen Cars to Get New 1.0 and 1.5 TSI evo engines

volkswagen tsi evo

Volkswagen today announced the addition of the new ‘TSI evo’ engines with a capacity of 1.0 and 1.5 litres, available for almost all product lines from the up! GTI, Passat, T-Cross, and the Tiguan.

There will also be a 1.0 e-TSI engine available with a mild hybrid system, generating 110 PS and 200 Nm of torque.

The 1.5 TSI and 1.0 TSI originate from the EA 211 engine family, which launched in the Golf 7 in 2012. In 2016/17, the four-cylinder units were completely revamped. At the same time, their previous capacities of 1.4 and 1.2 litres were standardised at 1.5 litres.

The improvements were integrated into the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine in 2019. Both power units have had the designation EA 211 TSI evo since the technology updates.

With only two capacity variants – 999 and 1,498 cc – both base engines offer a wide power range. The 1.0 TSI covers the range from 90 PS to 115 PS, while the 1.5 TSI generates 130 PS or 150 PS.

In the Polo and the Golf, the three and four-cylinder units are also designed for operation with natural gas as TGI engines. Within the Golf family, both engines operate together with a 48-volt mild hybrid system.

This reduces consumption, boosts the tractive power and improves spontaneous power development.

Depending on the number of cylinders and their power class, the compact TSI evo engines integrate different technological components.

The four-cylinder engine with 130 PS and the three-cylinder variant use a combustion process based on the so-called Miller cycle. This reduces consumption in the part load range in particular, that is to say when operated in realistic customer conditions.

Active Cylinder Management (ACT) is a further highlight to reduce fuel consumption of the 1.5 TSI. The system shuts down the second and third cylinders at low to medium loads and engine speeds by deactivating injection, ignition and the valve gear.

The aluminium crankcase makes TSI evo engines very lightweight – the three-cylinder variant weighs just 88 kilograms. Both the three-cylinder and the four-cylinder engines with an output of 110 kW (150 PS) benefit from sophisticated manufacturing technology to reduce friction in the crankshaft group: the cylinder walls consist of a 100-micrometre thick iron coating that is applied by plasma spraying.

A map-controlled cooling module guarantees efficient thermal management in the 1.5 TSI and 1.0 TSI. An important component here is the exhaust manifold, which is integrated in the cylinder head: this contributes to the engine heating up quickly so that exhaust gas treatment starts early on.

Is There Anything The New Volkswagen Golf R Cannot Do?

2020 vw golf r

Volkswagen just celebrated the world premiere of the new Golf R yesterday.

This time round, the Golf R is not only the most powerful Golf ever produced, but will also be the first Volkswagen to feature the company’s new all-wheel drive system called the 4MOTION with R-Performance Torque Vectoring.

volkswagen golf r rear

Powered by a tweaked version of the existing EA 888 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that makes 315 hp and 420 Nm of torque, the new Golf R tops everything that has been launched with the Golf label up to now. In terms of transmission, owners can choose between a six-speed manual and a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

Thanks to the powertrain package, the new Golf R accelerates to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds, and achieves a top speed that is electronically limited to 250 km/h. However, the Golf R can also be ordered with an optional R-Performance package, which enables the top speed to be increased to 270 km/h.

new volkswagen golf r interior

The new all-wheel drive system and high-tech running gear merge to create a host of innovations, offering maximum agility and driving pleasure. The 4MOTION system with R-Performance Torque Vectoring is the new control centre that distributes the engine’s output to the four driven wheels.

A new rear final drive distributes the drive power of the turbocharged petrol engine in the Golf R not just between the front and rear axles, but also variably between the two rear wheels. This makes it possible to significantly increase the agility particularly when cornering.

new volkswagen golf r seats

As a world first, the all-wheel drive is also networked via a Vehicle Dynamics Manager (VDM) with other running gear systems such the electronic differential locks (XDS) and adaptive chassis control DCC.

By the way, the new Golf R’s setup was fine-tuned on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. When combined with the R-Performance package, the Golf R even comes with a dedicated Nürburgring driving profile, known as “Special”.

new volkswagen golf r akrapovic

There is also a “Drift” mode now, something that was never offered in the Golf range before this. In case you’re wondering, the new Golf R is up to 19 seconds quicker per lap around Nürburgring Nordschleife than its predecessor (07:51 minutes).

On the exterior, key features include a sporty front bumper with integrated splitters, blue brake calipers, new and larger brake discs than before, ride height that is 20 mm lower than the standard Golf, Akrapovic exhausts, a rear diffuser, 19-inch wheels, and of course, the “R” division’s new emblem.

new volkswagen golf r steering

Inside, there is a generous dose of Nappa upholstery, Carbon Fibre elements, “R” emblem everywhere, a sports steering with an “R” button to choose between driving modes, a 30-colour ambient lighting system, as well as a 10-inch Discover Pro touchscreen infotainment system and Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit.

Now, how is that for a package?
