Armored Electric Chinese Police Patrol CarIs ... Words Fail Us

这是中国警察的装甲电动巡逻车。。。无语了
 
 

 
Here's an electric car whose designersthought outside the box... literally.

这是一辆电动车,其设计者真是跳出了思维的框框。。。字面意义上。

It may look like Buckminster Fuller'sinterpretation of the Popemobile, but this is actually one Chinese company'sidea of an armored electric police patrol car.

这看起来有点像是巴克敏斯特·福乐对教皇专车的诠释,但实际上是一家中国公司所生产的武装电动警察巡逻车。(巴克敏斯特·福乐(Richard Buckminster Fuller,1895年7月12日-1983年7月1日),美国哲学家、建筑师及发明家)

Wearing a name as unwieldy as its looks,the ZijingQingyuan Armored Spherical Cabin Electric Patrol Vehicle, it debuted at theSecurity China show in Beijing last month, according to Car News China.

这款车的名字相当的啰嗦,叫做“紫金清源装甲球形座舱电动巡逻车”,上个月在北京举办的“平安中国”展上首次与公众见面,中国汽车新闻网报道。

It's apparently designed for use by riotpolice, with the idea that they'll get an unobstructed 360-degree view from thearmored bubble cockpit.

这显然是为防暴警察设计的,其理念是借助装甲圆形顶座舱来提供360度的无障碍观察。

If the numerous hexagonal windows don'tprovide enough visibility (or if it rains, since there are only two wipers),there's also a camera mounted on top of the sphere.

如果这些六边形的窗户不能提供足够的能见度(或者下雨的话,因为只有两个雨刷),在顶部还安装了一个摄像机。

The vehicle is armored to China's Level-Astandard--meaning it can resist pistol fire only--and has seating for two.

这款汽车的装甲水平是中国A级——这意味着只能抵抗手枪的袭击——而且有两个座位。

Police officers can fire their guns throughslots in the door windows, and smoke-grenade launchers can be mounted on thefront fenders.

警察可以通过门窗的卡槽开枪射击,而烟雾弹发射器可以安装在前护盖上。

It wouldn't be surprising if police usedthose smoke grenades just to keep from being seen in this contraption.

如果警察为了不让别人看见自己而使用烟雾弹的话那也不足为奇。

Power comes from a single electric motorpaired with a 15-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Range is quoted at around 74miles, with a top speed of just under 50 mph.

动力由一个电动马达提供,电池组是15千瓦时。据说一次充电可行走74英里,最快时速不到50英里。

The patrol car was built by Suzhou ZijingQingyuan New Energy Vehicle Technology Corporation--Zijing Qingyuan for short--acompany that specializes in electric vehicles for law enforcement, based in theeastern Chinese city of Suzhou.

这款巡逻车由苏州的紫金清源新能源汽车技术公司制造,该公司主要生产用于执法的电动车辆。

The company claims police are interested inthe electric Spherical Cabin Patrol Vehicle, so perhaps you'll soon see theseon the news patrolling Chinese roads.

该公司称警方对这款车有兴趣,所以或许在不久的将来你将看到这款车在中国的道路上巡逻了。

Hopefully not, though.

但真不希望这款车能上路。
