The new Porsche Taycan 4S on the road
With two permanently excited synchronous motors on the front and rear axles, i.e. all-wheel drive, as well as a two-speed gearbox on the rear axle, the 4S has the main technical highlights of its model brothers in terms of drive architecture. The same applies to the intelligent charge management and the exemplary aerodynamics. With a drag coefficient of 0.22 or more, it makes a decisive contribution to low energy consumption and thus a long range. Typical of the Taycan is the clear, puristic exterior design with Porsche DNA and the unique interior design with a wide screen band
Chevrolet expanded its electric vehicle portfolio with the introduction of the new, all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV, alongside the redesigned 2022 Bolt EV. Distinguished by unique exterior designs, including an SUV-like proportion for the new Bolt EUV, each is propelled by the proven technology that helped make the Bolt EV the industry’s first affordable, long-range electric vehicle — and both are part of General Motors’ plan to launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025. Along with broadening the brand’s electric vehicle lineup, the Bolt EUV will also be the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer Super Cruise1, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system for enabled roads. Chevrolet is also making charging more convenient with a new Dual Level Charge Cord, which, for many customers, will eliminate the need to purchase a separate charger for their home. It has a changeable plug that allows the customer to plug into a standard 120-volt three-prong outlet for Level charging and a 240-volt outlet for Level 2 charging up to 7.2 kilowatts. The new Dual Level Charge Cord is standard with Bolt EUV and is available for Bolt EV. For maximum Level 2 charging speed, both vehicles are now capable of 11 kW Level 2 charging, but separate charging equipment (not included) is required.
Hyundai Digital Key is a dedicated smartphone app available on Elantra Limited and SEL models with Premium Package. The app allows smartphones to lock and unlock the vehicle, activate the panic alert and start the engine using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication and Near Field Communication (NFC). Not only does Hyundai Digital Key allow owners to leave traditional car keys at home, it can securely share keys with family and friends. The level of access can be tailored to each shared user for a defined period. The primary driver can determine duration of vehicle use or limit the use to only certain features when loaning the vehicle, and, of course, keys can be revoked remotely. Each Elantra still comes with traditional keys. Digital Key is compatible only with phones using the Android operating system.
