Mazda is committed to drastically reducing carbon emissions – by 2050, Mazda aims to be carbon neutral across all fields of operation. Electrifying vehicle powertrains will be one important factor in achieving this goal. But as Mazda believes the internal combustion engine (ICE) will still be powering the vast majority of cars in the coming years, full electrification can only be one aspect of a sustainable electrification strategy. Another important pillar will be improving the efficiency and performance of ICEs – through better combustion efficiency, environmentally friendly fuels like e-fuels, as well as electrification. Mazda is therefore committed to having all new models fully or partially electrified by 2030, delivering a vast range of different solutions for all individual mobility demands and regional conditions.
Abarth 595 Scorpioneoro Video
The new Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha special series is designed as an exclusive product, defining the ultra-high performance of Abarth. Produced in a limited edition of 2,000 units, the new special series celebrates the partnership between the two brands, which has now lasted since 2015. A bond based on shared values: performance, racing, technology and fun. Aesthetically inspired by the livery of the 2020 Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’s YZR-M1, the exterior of the new special series features a dual colour blue and black livery bearing the ‘Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’ logo on its lower side, just above the 595 logo. The special series is finished off with the Monster ‘claw’ on the bonnet, a sign of the new collaboration between the Scorpion and the renowned energy drink. The dark colours are contrasted with the grey finishes, as seen in the door handles and the front and rear DAM. On the inside, the model features the special new Abarth sports seats with blue finishes and the ‘Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP’ logo on the head restraints. The blue lining stands out from the black dashboard, mirroring the dual colour livery, while the numbered plate is placed on the central tunnel. The Abarth 595 Monster Energy Yamaha is equipped with a 1.4 T-jet engine with Euro6D TEMP homologation, with manual transmission delivering 165hp.

Clear the stage for the new Toyota bZ4X: The Japanese brand's first stand-alone battery-electric vehicle has now celebrated its world premiere. Based on a specially developed platform designed exclusively for electric drive. Under the abbreviation “bZ” (“beyond zero”), Toyota will in future be bringing a whole range of battery-electric vehicles onto the market. The Toyota bZ4X now makes the start. The design and technology largely correspond to the concept vehicle presented in spring. The series model also has a clear and powerful look that only e-cars can offer. The front section does without a large radiator grille. A long wheelbase also meets short overhangs. The result is a spacious cabin with five seats and generous loading capacity. Responsible for design freedom and space is the new, modular platform e-TNGA, specially designed for battery electric vehicles, which Toyota developed together with Subaru. The battery is mounted under the vehicle floor as part of the chassis, which goes hand in hand with a low center of gravity, excellent weight distribution between the front and rear axles and high body rigidity. With the optional all-wheel drive, which includes electric motors on each axle, the SUV offers exceptional stability and agility without sacrificing off-road capabilities. Toyota is also making use of its almost 25 years of experience in the electrification of vehicles and is striving for a world-leading role in this area in terms of quality, durability and reliability.
