With the Concept CE 02, BMW Motorrad is presenting a new interpretation of smart, urban single-track mobility one week before the IAA Mobility 2021. The electric vehicle concept, which is neither a classic motorcycle nor a scooter, is an exciting and highly emotional mobility offer. With its compact dimensions and youthful proportions, it also clearly appeals to a new target group: people aged 16 and over, who have not ridden a motorbike before but are open to new experiences, smart technology and, above all, combining mobility with fun. As a lightweight e-vehicle weighing about 120 kg, the BMW Motorrad Concept CE 02 is ideal for urban use, offering a high fun factor as well as straightforward yet stylish commuting. The 11 kW of output and all the torque available from standstill allow for fast acceleration at traffic lights. A top speed of 90 km/h and a range of 90 km make it easy to get from A to B – and back again – even in heavy city traffic.
Audi e-tron GT Prototype - Thermal management - Drive
Christian Schröder: You know that strong thermal management is needed for high and reproducible power output. In the e-tron GT, we have two coolant circuits for the technical components that operate at different temperature levels. The cooler one of them regulates the temperature of the high-voltage battery, while the warmer one supplies the electrical machines and power electronics. There is also a cooling circuit and a heating circuit for the interior, which your racing car probably doesn't have.
Opel has chosen the brand’s most popular model to finally bring electric mobility out of its niche-existence. The Opel Corsa is an absolute bestseller. More than 13.6 million units have been produced since the world premiere in 1982. The Corsa has made millions of people mobile; now it is offering them access to emission-free driving. Technologies and assistance systems that are more often found in higher market segments make their debut in the Corsa-e. The top features include the adaptive, glare-free IntelliLux LED® matrix light that Opel offers for the first time in the small car segment – for only €700 starting with “First Edition”1. The eight LED elements, controlled by a newest-generation high-resolution front camera, continuously adapt the light beam to the prevailing traffic situation and the surroundings. Advanced driver assistance systems provide tangible additional safety. Thanks to the new front camera traffic sign recognition now detects additional information, such as LED signs. The speed limits saved in the system are also shown in the display. Radar supported adaptive speed control and sensor-based flank-guard also celebrate their premiere in the new Corsa. Side blind-spot assist and a variety of parking assistants are also available.
Roads and motorways of all descriptions around the world are full of roundabouts. But they all have one thing in common: the hesitation drivers have when driving in and around them.

When must I use the turn signals? Below is a guide for successfully driving in a roundabout.
