The EQE features a sporty 'purpose design' with all the characteristic elements of Mercedes-EQ, one-bow lines and cab-forward design. Sensual Purity is reflected in generously modelled surfaces, reduced joints and seamless transitions (seamless design). The overhangs and the front end are kept short, the rear provides the dynamic accent with a sharp rear spoiler. Flush with the outer edge of the body, the 19- to 21‑inch wheels, together with a pronounced muscular shoulder section, give the EQE an athletic character. Compared to the luxury liner EQS, the EQE is even more streamlined, with a slightly shorter wheelbase, shorter overhangs and more recessed flanks - it carries the concept of the business saloon into the future. The sporty, low and slim front of the EQE forms a coupé-like silhouette with a bow (one bow) stretched tightly over the greenhouse. The A-pillar, which has been moved far forward, and the C-pillar at the rear create space for a generous passenger compartment. Unique in this segment is the cab-forward design: The overhangs and the front-end assembly are short, the rear forms a dynamic accent with a sharp rear spoiler. Flush with the outer edge of the body, wheels of around 725 mm in size on 19- to 21-inch rims, together with a muscular shoulder section, give the EQE an athletic character.
Toyota RAV4 PHEV demo charging
Since its debut in 1994, RAV4 has pioneered the crossover SUV market, and remains the market leader. The fifth generation RAV4 was released in April 2019. It has been popular with many customers, thanks to the superior driving performance delivered by three types of 4WD system, including Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD; design which fuses refinement with SUV-like power; spacious luggage storage; and an interior designed for convenience, making it suited to diverse situations. The new RAV4 PHEV aims to boost the fun-to-drive appeal of RAV4, adopting the newly developed Toyota Hybrid System (THS II). The front motor and inverter achieve more powerful output than the RAV4 hybrid system, and the combination with the new model, high-capacity, high-output lithium-ion battery achieves maximum system output of 225 kW, facilitating sporty, powerful driving. It also achieves a BEV driving range of 95 kilometers, top level in its class, for greater driving pleasure in BEV mode, thus also realizing superior environmental friendliness.
The all-electric Volvo C40 Recharge, which was recently awarded the Top Safety Pick+ by the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for its exceptional level of safety, comes with an additional drive variant: As a supplement to the all-wheel drive version, an entry-level model with a 170 kW (231 hp) electric motor and front-wheel drive available. In conjunction with a 69 kWh high-voltage battery, it offers a range of up to 423 kilometers in the combined WLTP cycle. The battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent within 32 minutes at fast charging stations. The starting price for the Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric is 48,850 euros (RRP including 19% VAT). The Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor Pure Electric expands the all-electric range of the Swedish premium car manufacturer. The company wants to encourage even more people to switch to electromobility. From 2030, only fully electrically powered models will be sold.
