Natural gas-powered ŠKODA OCTAVIA G-TEC with CNG drive can now be ordered
"ŠKODA is launching the next alternative drive variant of the new OCTAVIA: Customers can now use the ŠKODA OCTAVIA G-TEC, which is powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) The sedan with Ambition equipment including 16 percent VAT is available from 30,276 euros, the estate version is available from 30,959 euros. Both meet the Euro 6d-ISC-FCM (AP) emissions standard that will apply from January 2021 and are satisfied with 3, 5 kg / 100 km CNG with combined consumption according to NEDC standard. In addition to the Ambition version, ŠKODA also offers the OCTAVIA G-TEC in the style version and as an even higher-quality FIRST EDITION special model. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA 1.5 TGI G -TEC DSG is consistently geared towards operation with environmentally friendly natural gas (CNG). Its 1.5 TGI petrol engine has an output of 96 kW (130 PS) and distributes this power via an automatic 7-speed dual clutch transmission e (DSG). The cleaner combustion of natural gas reduces CO2 emissions in CNG mode by around 25 percent compared to gasoline operation, and there are also significantly fewer nitrogen oxides (NOx) and no soot particles. In CNG mode, the OCTAVIA G-TEC is satisfied with a combined consumption of 3.5 to 3.4 kg / 100 km and 4.6 l / 100 km in petrol mode. The CO2 emissions are correspondingly low at 96 to 93 g / km. "
Automobili Lamborghini and Moleskine have commissioned Emiliano Ponzi to create a cover illustration and interior design for the 2021 notebook, bringing to life a new and exciting Special Edition. This follows years of collaboration that spawned many customizations of the famous notebook, both for the annual edition and for a number of Lamborghini events. Artist Emiliano Ponzi, one of the finest illustrators of his generation, expresses himself with bold, textured artwork that employs repetition, a judicious use of line, strong graphic compositions, and the use of conceptual metaphors to define and communicate a theme. His illustrations are featured in distinguished publications, books, newspapers and world-renowned advertisements for clients such as The New York Times, Le Monde, The New Yorker, Louis Vuitton, MoMA NY, Cartier and Der Spiegel. The collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and Moleskine arose from a careful evaluation of the graphic approach, staying consistent with the brands' values both in terms of the evocative design projects and prestige at international level. Emiliano Ponzi's graphic style perfectly reflects these characteristics.
Mazda is committed to drastically reducing carbon emissions – by 2050, Mazda aims to be carbon neutral across all fields of operation. Electrifying vehicle powertrains will be one important factor in achieving this goal. But as Mazda believes the internal combustion engine (ICE) will still be powering the vast majority of cars in the coming years, full electrification can only be one aspect of a sustainable electrification strategy. Another important pillar will be improving the efficiency and performance of ICEs – through better combustion efficiency, environmentally friendly fuels like e-fuels, as well as electrification. Mazda is therefore committed to having all new models fully or partially electrified by 2030, delivering a vast range of different solutions for all individual mobility demands and regional conditions.
