The biturbo V8 in the new RS Q8 combines maximum performance and high efficiency. Its mild-hybrid system (MHEV) is based on a 48-volt main electrical system. The core of the MHEV is a belt alternator-starter connected to the crankshaft. During deceleration and braking, it can recover up to 12 kW of power and store it in the compact lithium-ion battery. If the driver takes their foot off the accelerator at a speed between 55 and 160 km/h (34.2 to 99.4 mph), the drive management selects one of two solutions depending on the driving situation and the current setting of the Audi drive select dynamic handling system: The new RS Q8 recuperates or coasts for up to 40 seconds with the engine off. The belt alternator starter starts the engine within fractions of a second when the accelerator is actuated. MHEV technology allows for start/stop operation at a speed of up to 22 km/h (13.7 mph). The mild-hybrid system is connected to the camera sensors for even greater efficiency. When stopped, the engine starts up while the brake pedal is still depressed as soon as the front camera detects that the vehicle in front of the new RS Q8 begins to move.

The Mercedes‑Benz Sprinter City 75 is the pride of the Mercedes‑Benz minibuses for regular-service bus routes. This is illustrated not only by the asymmetrical body design and the distinctive wheelbase, but also by the paint finish of the test vehicle, including its attachments, in ""Argentum Metallic"". Passengers enter the passenger compartment through a double-wing, electrically operated outward swivelling door behind the front axle. Like the single-wing rear door, it is powered by the twelve-volt technology of the Sprinter. The passenger compartment has a low-entry design. The ""Waves Nazare"" designer floor covering of the test vehicle has a friendly look and is simultaneously also easy to clean. Two very shallow steps in front of the rear axle lead to the seating area in the rear.
As the first model in the Lexus F SPORT Performance line, the first-ever 2022 IS 500 dials up the sports sedan formula to 11 with a boost in displacement and performance over the IS 350 F SPORT. With a push of the engine start button, its naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine roars to life, providing a not-so-subtle reminder that something special lies beneath its raised hood. The 2022 IS 500 accelerates from 0-60 MPH in 4.4 seconds according to AMCI testing and has an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway rating.
