Since 1850, PEUGEOT has successively used ten logos, always bearing the lion emblem. Today, an eleventh version, even more powerful, qualitative and elegant, is born from the creativity of the PEUGEOT Design Lab, the Global Brand Design studio of the PEUGEOT brand. Launched in 2010, the current logo had to evolve to crown the brand's evolution towards the top of the range. With a complete renewal of its vehicle offering in 10 years, PEUGEOT modernizes its logo to keep up with its products. At the beginning of the year 2021, with the launch of a range that will inaugurate the new PEUGEOT 308, with a new internet site and with the birth of STELLANTIS, the planets have aligned. PEUGEOT is a brand of its time. Always at the forefront, live in the present moment, anticipate behavioral changes and open the door to new mobility solutions. PEUGEOT has lived through all revolutions: industrial, technological, political, social, digital and, more recently, environmental - the energy transition and carbon-free mobility have become the main vertex of a sustainable growth strategy.
Development of the Formula E - Audi e-tron FE07
In the seventh season of Formula E, the first as official FIA world championship, Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler is starting with the Audi e-tron FE07. The new all-electric racing car from the brand with the four rings has a new, self-developed motor-generator unit, the Audi MGU05.
A number of new technologies optimize the precision and control of the chassis in a wide variety of weather and road conditions. The standard electronic damper control (Electronic Control Suspension, ECS) in the GT-line version increases comfort and safety thanks to the continuous damping control. The system reacts to body movements and steering inputs and changes the damping behavior at lightning speed in order to counteract the vehicle's diving, pitching and rolling movements when cornering. It also adjusts the damping force in the case of obstacles in order to cope with them as comfortably as possible and to reduce the influence of post-vibrations on the wheels. A premiere for the Sportage is the “All-Terrain-Mode”, which will be available for the plug-in hybrid version with all-wheel drive. The system offers intelligent support when driving off-road or on snow by automatically optimizing the vehicle settings depending on the selected mode and thus helping the SUV to achieve maximum traction on muddy, sandy or snowy surfaces.
