Hyundai Motor has released two new videos showing winter testing for its high-performance models, including a prototype of the all-new i20 N in camouflage. The videos, which were shot in Arjeplog, Sweden, show Hyundai WRC driver Thierry Neuville putting the i20 WRC, the RM19, and the i20 N through their paces in a snowy landscape. In addition, first images of the all-new i20 N have been released. The testing took place earlier this year on a frozen lake in Arjeplog, Sweden, a popular winter testing ground for automotive manufacturers. The year-round deep cold makes it the perfect place for testing vehicles in extreme weather conditions. Some days, the temperature can drop to minus 30 degrees Celsius.
Efficiency in a unique variety - in future already five plug-in hybrid models in the BMW 5 Series
"Clear the stage for the new Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid: With a fifth seat, new colors and an upgraded interior. The price list starts in Germany at 37,200 euros. For more than 20 years, the Toyota Prius has played a pioneering role in alternative drives. The plug-in version, which can be charged at the socket and charging station, combines the best of both worlds: long electric range and unrestricted everyday usability. This is how the Prius Plug-in hybrid in EV mode can travel up to 59 kilometers locally emission-free and almost silently. The fully electric top speed is 135 km / h. With a system output of 90 kW / 122 PS, the hybrid consumes just 1.3 in the realistic WLTP standard cycle Liters of fuel and 9.9 kWh of electricity per 100 kilometers, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 29 g / km. The drive already meets the strict A requirements bgas standard Euro 6d-Temp-EVAP-ISC. "
The new Macan models also offer a wide suspension bandwidth, balancing maximum suspension comfort and dynamic sports car performance. The chassis has been optimised further: the Macan now responds with even more sensitivity and more directly to the driving situation and road conditions, giving the driver even better feedback via the steering wheel. For this purpose, elements such as the damper characteristics of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) have been re-adapted specifically for this model. It actively and continuously regulates the damping force for each individual wheel. PASM is available as an option for the Macan and is standard for the S and GTS models.
