SUV bestseller now as a plug-in hybrid - the new Tiguan eHybrid can be ordered immediately
Volkswagen has launched an unprecedented electromobility offensive and is currently bringing numerous new electric and hybrid models onto the market. As part of this product offensive, the electrified Tiguan can also be ordered with immediate effect. An electric motor on board the new Tiguan eHybrid ensures that most daily distances can be covered locally emission-free. Electric range: up to 50 km (WLTP). The Tiguan eHybrid can be configured and ordered immediately. The price in Germany: from 42,413.11 euros. In “Hybrid” mode, the electric motor supports the 1.4 liter TSI and acts like an additional booster. Temporarily, the Tiguan eHybrid is always on the move purely electrically, even in "Hybrid" mode, and therefore locally emission-free, as the battery is recharged when the SUV decelerates using what is known as recuperation. And so, even over long distances, there is sufficient electrical energy available to switch off the TSI or to support it with additional drive power, depending on the situation. A “GTE mode” can be activated manually in the Tiguan eHybrid - the electric motor and the TSI form a particularly dynamic alliance. Both engines jointly develop a maximum system torque of 400 Newton meters
Mercedes-Benz has been building special-protection vehicles since 1928 and thus for over 90 years. Customers of the new S 680 GUARD 4MATIC benefit from these many years of experience. The integrated protection system (iSS) reaches a new level: whereas the necessary protective materials were previously integrated into the standard body shell structure for the GUARD saloons, a GUARD-specific body shell of protective elements has now been developed. This self-supporting protective cell represents the core of the iSS. Ultimately, the (aluminium) outer skin serves as a design cover and ensures an inconspicuous appearance. In addition to the armouring, the iSS includes the adaptation of the suspension, engine and transmission to ensure handling that is virtually on a par with that of the production vehicle. Due to a parallel development process alongside the large-scale production models, the longevity of the GUARD vehicles also reaches series production level. In addition to the unseen armouring elements, the transparent area of the windows is an integral and essential part of the protection concept. The material and thickness of the multi-layer glass 'sandwich' meet the high requirements of the VR10 safety classification. The inner surfaces of the glass are coated with polycarbonate for splinter protection. Despite their comprehensive protective effect, they offer excellent visibility. And they have been integrated in such a way that they are not noticeable at first glance - another significant advantage of the integrated protection system.
Audi is pressing forward consistently with its electrification offensive: at a world premiere with celebrity participants, the Four Rings company presented the Audi Q4 e-tron and the Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron. These all-electric models represent the brand’s entry into premium e-mobility in the compact segment. At the second digital Celebration of Progress, in the company of Audi experts and international guests, the Four Rings demonstrated the highlights of the SUV/CUV: typical e-tron design, cutting-edge display technologies and impressive spaciousness.
