Chevrolet expanded its electric vehicle portfolio with the introduction of the new, all-electric 2022 Bolt EUV, alongside the redesigned 2022 Bolt EV. Distinguished by unique exterior designs, including an SUV-like proportion for the new Bolt EUV, each is propelled by the proven technology that helped make the Bolt EV the industry’s first affordable, long-range electric vehicle — and both are part of General Motors’ plan to launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025. Along with broadening the brand’s electric vehicle lineup, the Bolt EUV will also be the first Chevrolet vehicle to offer Super Cruise1, the industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system for enabled roads. Chevrolet is also making charging more convenient with a new Dual Level Charge Cord, which, for many customers, will eliminate the need to purchase a separate charger for their home. It has a changeable plug that allows the customer to plug into a standard 120-volt three-prong outlet for Level charging and a 240-volt outlet for Level 2 charging up to 7.2 kilowatts. The new Dual Level Charge Cord is standard with Bolt EUV and is available for Bolt EV. For maximum Level 2 charging speed, both vehicles are now capable of 11 kW Level 2 charging, but separate charging equipment (not included) is required.
Form and function - the light technology in the new Hyundai Tucson
Different with Hyundai: The new Tucson is strongly reminiscent of the Hyundai SUV study Vision T Plug-in-Hybrid Concept, which was unveiled at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. The concept vehicle is groundbreaking for two reasons: On the one hand, it showed the new Hyundai design philosophy Sensuous Sportiness for the first time, and on the other hand, it presented a self-assured radiator grille with the new so-called parametric hidden lights. This technology, in which the LED daytime running lights are optically seamlessly integrated into the radiator grille, can now be found in the production model of the new Hyundai Tucson. If the daytime running lights are switched off, the components cannot be seen. They integrate seamlessly into the diamond-cut look of the radiator grille and the front of the Tucson appears to be made of one piece. Only when the daytime running lights are switched on do the hidden, partially mirrored daytime running lights become visible. Five of them are located on each side of the grill, one of them also functions as a blinker
Experience all-electric performance with the Toyota bZ4X. The SUV is particularly responsive and offers you dynamics right from the start, just as you would want from a vehicle. For a truly seamless driving experience, the Toyota bZ4X also offers the option of """"single pedal drive"""" with enhanced brake energy regeneration, where you can accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal. You have the choice between front-wheel drive (150 kW) and all-wheel drive (160 kW). The all-wheel drive variant has two 80 kW electric motors on the front and rear axles, which distribute their power and thus improve the performance and safety of the bZ4X. For perfect traction, various driving modes can also be selected via the X-Mode all-wheel management. With its all-wheel drive capabilities, it masters any terrain.
