The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class - URBAN GUARD- Intelligent linking of hardware and digital solutions to protect against crime
"Under the name URBAN GUARD, Mercedes-Benz is introducing a new holistic product and special equipment category for all model series. This bundles existing and future offers for protecting the vehicle against vandalism and crime. With URBAN GUARD - an intelligent combination of hardware and digital solutions - Mercedes-Benz is responding to the growing global customer demand for security and protection of property. Two special equipment packages, URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection and URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus, are planned from mid 2020. Some URBAN GUARD products will also be available through the Mercedes me Online Store and will be activated at a later date. The two packages URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection and URBAN GUARD Vehicle Protection Plus, in combination with Mercedes me, allow for the all-round monitoring of the parked vehicle. URBAN GUARD includes a burglary and theft alarm system, a towing protection system with visual and acoustic warning when a change of position is detected, an alarm siren, an interior protection system (triggers when there is movement inside the vehicle) and a pre-equipment for theft and parking collision detection. The vehicle sensors register when the parked and locked vehicle is jostled or towed away - or when someone tries to break into the vehicle. If the service is activated, the driver is then informed via the Mercedes me app. A push message tells him, for example, how badly the parking damage is and in which area of the vehicle. As soon as the vehicle is started again, this information also appears once on the media display.
Efficient, emotive and electrifying – these attributes neatly sum up the ENYAQ iV. In launching its first all-electric SUV, the Czech car manufacturer has taken the biggest step yet in its electromobility strategy. The new ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. It is built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany. ŠKODA’s new flagship boasts generous amounts of space as is typical of the brand, and – thanks to its emotive design language – its appearance is electrifying too. Inside, new Design Selections replace the classic trim levels, while a clear and new structure of the options available means the car can be configured with just a few clicks. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear- or all-wheel drive, and there are five power levels and three battery sizes to choose from. The range of more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The car will be launched in the spring of 2021.
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.
