An array of sensors integrated on the vehicle make the CUPRA Formentor e-HYBRID one of the easiest and safest to live with in daily life. Highlights include Travel assist, Side and Exit assist, Emergency assist, Predictive ACC and exit warning. The technology mix delivers high levels of safety, but systems are integrated to bring convenience without the feeling of control being taken away from the driver. An important consideration in a CUPRA, a brand where the driver’s needs are a central priority. The result is a vehicle that can meet the dynamic needs of the CUPRA brand, while providing the safety standards demanded by the market.
The new Lexus UX 300e - interior design
As with all Lexus UX models, the exterior and interior merge seamlessly. The premium brand uses a traditional Japanese architectural concept, which has another advantage: the driver gets a particularly good feeling for the vehicle dimensions, which in combination with the excellent overview makes parking and manoeuvring easier even in narrow urban areas. In the driver-centered cockpit, all elements can be controlled intuitively and are easy to read. The direct field of vision includes the sporty digital speedometer, the range indicator and a four-stage deceleration indicator. The audio system is operated via the armrest integrated in the center console. A further central point of interaction is the finely crafted selector lever, which fits snugly in the hand and replaces the conventional gearshift. Thanks to "Shift-by-Wire" technology, the driver receives direct feedback. A shortened actuation stroke enables fast gear changes.
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.
The most exacting environmental compatibility requirements have been put in place throughout the value chain and for the full life cycle of the BMW iX. The car is currently in the final phase of its series development. At market launch – which will get underway at the end of 2021 – customers will be able to choose from two model variants: the BMW iX xDrive50 and BMW iX xDrive40. The BMW iX redefines the successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept. It is the first model based on a new, modular, scalable toolkit on which the future of the BMW Group will be built. The development and production of the BMW iX follow an all-encompassing approach to sustainability involving compliance with strict environmental and social standards in the extraction of raw materials, plus the use of electricity from renewable sources and a high proportion of recycled materials in the mix.
