Born in Namyang, honed at Nürburgring. Hyundai N stands for Namyang, the location of Hyundai Motor’s global research and development centre in Korea and the birthplace of the idea. Opened in 1995, the Namyang R&D Center is the heart of the company’s global research and development network as well as where the i30 N was conceived. Hyundai N also stands for Nürburgring, where Hyundai Motor’s European Test Centre – operated by HMETC – is located. Nürburgring-Nordschleife, one of the world’s most challenging racetracks, was and is where N’s high-performance technologies are further developed and tested to create the moment of genuine connection between car and driver. The connection between Namyang and Nürburgring created the foundation for N. The ‘N’ also symbolises a chicane. This shape captures Hyundai’s commitment to developing high-performance cars and embodies agile vehicles that are fun to drive. Hyundai incorporated this shape into the logo to represent the ultimate driving experience on winding roads.
2020 Toyota Hilux Invincible X Exterior Design in Titan Bronze
The new Toyota Hilux, with numerous modifications and improvements in a myriad of elements, from the body to the engine through the chassis, equipment and infotainment technology. Thus, Hilux 2021 can now be purchased, in a pre-sale format until the first units reach the Spanish market at the end of the year or early 2021. The new Hilux, an extension of the success story of more than four decades that stars this pick-up thanks to its undeniable values of quality, durability and reliability, presents a renewed design, in which its new front panel stands out, the LED option for headlights and lamps, the new range of alloy wheels and, especially, the new Hilux INVINCIBLE version with an exclusive, powerful and robust image. Like the 2021 Land Cruiser, the new Hilux is powered by the new 150 kW / 204 hp 2.8D engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed Super ECT automatic transmission. This engine will coexist with the 110 kW / 150 hp 2.4D that Hilux has been running since 2016.

With the BMW i Vision Circular, the BMW Group is demonstrating the consistent design of a car according to the principles of a circular economy. The overall design goal of this visionary vehicle was to create a vehicle that is optimized for closed material cycles and achieves a rate of 100% recycled materials or 100% recyclability. In addition to bio-based and certified raw materials, materials that have already passed through a product life cycle – so-called secondary materials – are used for this purpose. This also applies to the energy storage system: The solid-state battery of the BMW i Vision Circular is 100% recyclable and almost completely made from recycled materials. At the same time, it will achieve a considerably higher energy density with significantly fewer of the most valuable resources. “We have included circularity in our concept right from the start when designing the BMW i Vision Circular. That's why this visionary vehicle is full of innovative ideas that combine sustainability with new and inspiring aesthetics – we call this approach Circular Design,” explains Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design. Circular Design is based on the four principles RE:THINK, RE:DUCE, RE:USE and RE:CYCLE.
