It’s arrived the evolution of one of the most acclaimed bikes of all time by the public and critics: it is an Aprilia product and it bears a name that is respected by all sport riders and identified as a true thrill generator. It is not a sport naked: it is the Tuono. After making the RSV4, the best superbike of the new millennium, Aprilia shocked the hypernaked world with the astonishing Tuono V4, which has always been considered a point of reference in the category in terms of effectiveness and feeling in terms of sport street riding, as well as at-the-limit track riding. Aprilia was the first to see the advantages of making a more minimalist version with a more raised ride, starting from a chassis architecture and engine born for racing, giving every generation of Tuono incomparable dynamic qualities. The new Aprilia Tuono V4 is the heir to a motorcycling dynasty that has been voted one of the most adrenaline charged of all time and it now reaches incredible levels of performance and sophistication, thanks to the know-how Aprilia has acquired in years of victorious top level competition.
First Jeep® Wrangler 4xe Rolls Off the Line - Chuck Padden, Plant manager
The Jeep® brand has introduced its new Wrangler 4xe, marking the arrival of the most capable, technically advanced and eco-friendly Wrangler ever. Jeep Wrangler 4xe models will be available in Europe, China and the United States by early 2021. The Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models – introduced last year in Geneva – began arriving in Europe this summer. The new Jeep 4xe models follow the introduction of the Jeep Grand Commander PHEV in China last year. The Wrangler 4xe’s plug-in hybrid powertrain is capable of up to 25 miles of nearly silent, zero-emission, electric-only propulsion, making it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily driver without range anxiety and the most capable and eco-friendly Jeep vehicle off-road – combined with the open-air freedom that only Jeep Wrangler offers. Jeep will offer electrification options on each nameplate in the next few years as it strives to become the leader in eco-friendly premium technology. Electrified Jeep vehicles will carry the 4xe badge. Jeep electric vehicles will be the most efficient and responsible Jeep vehicles ever, taking performance, 4x4 capability and driver confidence to the next level.
Summer is here, and it’s time for people to go on their long-awaited holidays. In a year that is still burdened by the COVID-19 pandemic, 39% of Europeans will be travelling by car this summer, with domestic tourism as the main trend, according to the European Travel Commission (ETC). The same organisation estimates that a large proportion of Europeans will enjoy beach vacations, with 14.6% planning to visit the countryside and 11.6% heading to cities for urban tourism. Whatever the destination, cars will play a fundamental role in mobility, to travel around both the major tourist destinations and the most impressive rural hideaways.
