The new Toyota e-Palette Task Assignment and Autonomous Mobility
Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) has presented an operational management system that will serve as the basis for the provision of different services through its e-Palette battery-electric autonomous vehicle, with Autono-MaaS applications —Autonomous Mobility As A Service—. This new e-Palette application will make possible the mobility services of the future and, thanks to the collaboration with several partners, will allow the deployment of different units of the e-Palette in Woven City, the prototype of Toyota's city of the future, fully connected and sustainable , with a view to its commercial use in multiple areas and regions in the coming years. Proclaiming his purpose to transform Toyota into a mobility company, at CES in Las Vegas in January 2018, TMC President and CEO Akio Toyoda announced the e-Palette as a symbol of mobility that goes beyond conventional vehicles, to offer customers services and added value.
Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility, the iX sees BMW redefining the successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept. With its completely newly developed, precise and minimalist design, the BMW iX is the first representative of a trailblazing generation of cars poised to redefine the driving experience, the feeling of space inside and the relationship between vehicles and those on board. The BMW iX harnesses the latest innovations in the fields of electrification, automated driving and connectivity to deliver a mobility experience which puts people more than ever at its heart. To this end, its design has been developed from the inside out. The BMW iX has been created to provide quality of life and wellbeing for drivers and passengers. The clear and minimalist design of its exterior showcases a new form of mobility geared squarely to the needs of the vehicle’s occupants. Its interior offers those on board innovative options for using the time during a journey – and enjoying relaxation, safety, security, and a new form of luxury in the process.
The Macan GTS now sets itself apart from the other derivatives even more than before with the now-standard sport air suspension, which lowers the body by 10 millimetres. The dynamic benefits of the new GTS are above all due to the fact that the air suspension is 10 per cent more rigid on the front axle and 15 per cent firmer on the rear axle compared with its predecessor. The optional GTS Sport package further increases the dynamic potential of the car, with 21-inch GT design wheels with performance tyres, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and the Sport Chrono package.
