Electric cars are quiet, clean and dynamic - but do they offer the same level of safety as a classic four-wheel drive vehicle on a slippery road surface? The Volvo XC40 is perfect for answering this question. With the premium compact SUV, the customer can choose between a wide variety of engines and drive concepts: combustion, mild and plug-in hybrids as well as a fully electric version, front-wheel drive, mechanical all-wheel drive and, with the Pure Electric model, all-wheel drive by means of electric motors on the front and rear axles. The Volvo XC40 is the latest addition to the model range and has risen from scratch to number two in the brand's internal sales ranking. It combines typical SUV advantages such as a raised seating position and good space with an attractive lifestyle appearance, high functionality - and a versatile range of drives. The series underlines its pioneering role in the field of electrification: The Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 AWD is the brand's first fully electric model.

But on this occasion, there’s something new in his daily routine, as for the first time he drives to training in his new car, the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID.
Inconspicuously, but irresistibly he rose among the elite of Czech rally drivers. Former karter Dominik Stříteský is currently competing only his debut season in the Czech Championship at the wheel of a ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo – but already he regularly fights for podium positions. After participating in a round of the FIA European Rally Championship in July, the next milestone in the 21-years-old’s career lies ahead. Stříteský and co-driver Jiří Hovorka will compete in the eleventh round of the FIA World Rally Championship, the RallyRACC Catalunya – Costa Daurada (14-17 October 2021). Their ŠKODA FABIA Rally2 evo will be fielded by Team Toksport WRT.
