The electrification of the Nissan model range is progressing. The compact crossover Juke with a new hybrid drive can now be ordered at prices starting at 31,090 euros. The advanced electrified powertrain reduces emissions and fuel consumption while also impressing with driving pleasure and direct response. The internal combustion engine in the Juke was specially developed for use in a hybrid system. It delivers 69 kW (94 hp) and develops a maximum torque of 148 Nm. It is supported by an electric motor with 36 kW (49 hp) and a torque of 205 Nm. In addition, the system consists of a 15 kW starter generator, an inverter and a water-cooled 1.2 kWh battery. All in all, the powertrain offers 25 percent more power than the current petrol engine, while reducing fuel consumption by around 40 percent in city driving and up to 20 percent in mixed traffic (figures subject to homologation). The expected fuel consumption of the Juke Hybrid is 5.0 to 5.2 liters per 100 kilometers, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 114 to 117 grams per kilometer (depending on equipment; consumption and emission values are subject to homologation).

The innovative Team Fordzilla P1 race car features an exterior designed by Arturo Ariño and an interior that was the vision of Robert Engelmann, both Ford designers. The race car is built around the monocoque structure partially covered by a large, hyper-transparent jet fighter-style canopy, protecting the driver and co-driver. The transparent canopy not only blurs the boundaries between the exterior and the interior, but it also emphasises the race car’s unique F1-like driving position. The exterior of this race car is the combination of a sleek GT-like front end with beautifully sculped front fenders and extremely sculpted bodyside panels, with their highly memorable twist and floating buttresses visually connecting the cockpit with the rear wheels. The rear end is completely exposed and celebrates the aerodynamics and racing circuits rawness. In the cockpit, you’ll find LED notification units, keeping the driver and co-driver up-to-date on the track status in their peripheral view. In addition, an integrated screen on the steering wheel enables live data exchange with the team at the pit wall. The whole interior is designed to help the race car driver to minimize any sort of distraction during the race and heighten the enjoyment of racing.
