The all-new, rear-wheel drive 2022 Subaru BRZ sports car made its Global Debut today at the Thermal Club Raceway in Thermal, CA. Subaru developed the all-new BRZ with the same fundamentals of sports car design that it used to create the original: low vehicle weight, an ultra-low center of gravity with precision steering and handling in an affordable 2+2 package. But for the 2022 model year, the BRZ features more power, better handling, improved styling, a 50-percent increase in torsional stiffness and a modern interior. A pure sports car with Subaru DNA.
The Audi Q3 as a plug-in hybrid - charging at home and on the road
The Audi Q3 45 TFSI e and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e can charge alternating current (AC) at a 400 V socket with 3.6 kW power. This allows an empty battery to be refilled in 3 h 45 min via the standard mains charging cable. The free myAudi app allows customers to control charging, timers and pre-conditioning remotely using their smartphone. Audi customers can choose Volkswagen Naturstrom, which comes from 100 percent renewable sources, to power their home and garage. At public AC charging stations, the compact plug-in hybrids use a Mode 3 cable. High convenience is offered here by the e-tron Charging Service, which covers most countries in Europe: a single card gives customers access to more than 155,000 charging points.
The CUPRA Born is the brand’s first 100% electric vehicle and the next stage of the unconventional challenger brand’s development. It integrates the most advanced powertrain technology: the pure electric system is available with a choice of either 150PS (110kW) or 204PS (150kW) electric engines that deliver energy to the rear wheels. With the addition of an e-Boost package, maximum output can reach up to 170kW (231PS), with battery packs of 58kWh and 77kW, to deliver a range of up to 420km (58kWh) or up to 548km (77kWh). When equipped with the e-Boost package and with the 58kWh battery, the CUPRA Born goes from 0 to 50km/h in only 2.6s and the 0-100km/h in just 6.6 seconds.
