The Porsche Taycan is the first production vehicle with 800-volt technology. Its drive system components use this voltage. At the same power output, half the cross-section of conventional 400-volt technology is sufficient for cables. In the Taycan, this saves around four kilograms in weight, reduces transmission losses and requires less installation space. The new generation of charging stations developed by Porsche Engineering Services GmbH under the name “Porsche Charging” is designed for 800-volt technology. This significantly shortens charging times because higher power outputs can be achieved. However, the vehicle components and in particular the battery (cooling) must also be appropriately adapted.
The Audi e-tron S Sportback - the exterior design
The Audi e-tron S and the Audi e-tron S Sportback reveal their electric power at first glance. Their front and rear bumpers are strongly contoured, the air curtains are particularly large and expressive. At the rear, the diffuser insert runs over almost the full width of the vehicle. The wheel arches are 23 millimeters wider on both sides, which makes the cars look very powerful. Silver-colored add-on parts set accents at the front and rear - an exclusive feature for the S models, as do the aluminum exterior mirror housings. On request, large parts in the lower area of the body can be painted in a contrasting color. In both cars, the light comes optionally from digital Matrix LED headlights - another world innovation in large-scale production that Audi presented with the e-tron Sportback in autumn 2019. Divided into 1.3 million pixels each, the light can be controlled with great precision, which enables many new functions. In narrow spaces, for example, it marks the position of the car in the lane and thus helps the driver to stay safely centered
2020 Dodge Charger Widebody adds grip to tame massive Hemi power Dodge keeps finding new ways to keep its Charger sedan and Challenger coupe alive. The two cars can trace their DNA back to the 1997 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but Dodge keeps adding more power and features to keep fans of American muscle coming back. Dodge launched a Widebody option for the Challenger for the 2018 model year, and now the Charger is gets the same treatment for 2020. The 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody is exactly what it sounds like. New front and rear fascias with integrated fender flares add 3.5 inches of width to the big sedan. The extra bodywork shelters Pirelli 305/35ZR20 tires, wrapped around 20-inch wheels. The tires, which are wider than the rubber on other Charger models, add grip, making a noticeable difference in handling, according to Dodge. The package also includes upgraded brakes and model-specific suspension tuning with Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping.
