With the new NX, Lexus is opening a new chapter in the history of the Japanese premium automobile brand: The second generation of the SUV model features a further developed body design and is driving electrification further with the first plug-in hybrid from Lexus and the latest hybrid generation Ahead. At the same time, the new NX offers driving dynamics improvements for an active and networked driving experience, multimedia and connectivity of the next generation as well as new technologies for more safety and comfort. The new NX replaces a model that has been very successful for Lexus in Europe. Since its launch in 2014, more than 170,000 units have been sold - mostly to customers who are driving a Lexus for the first time. The NX has thus also made a significant contribution to the growth of the brand in Germany.

Following the Audi prologue design study, which offered a preview of the design language of the subsequent full-size class models as a show car in 2014, the e-tron GT constitutes the next evolutionary stage of the Audi design language. As a gran turismo, it fascinates with its sculptural design. What applies for the current full-size class models applies here, too: Proportions are the foundation of good design. In other words: a long wheelbase, wide track, large wheels, and a flat silhouette. The e-tron GT has precisely these ideal proportions. Its design language is the starting point for the design of future electric models from Audi – they will have a significantly more flowing exterior design than today’s models. As is always the case at Audi, the design is not an end in itself but rather the connection between form and function: In line with electric mobility, the design of the e-tron GT,enables sophisticated aerodynamics – aesthetics thus also arise from efficiency. The e-tron GT deliberately adopts established design elements of the e-tron, the first electric car from Audi, and refines them in a targeted manner. These elements include the strongly modeled insert above the door sill trims. It emphasizes the battery pack in the center of the vehicle as the car’s powerhouse.
