Design icon meets future: the Volvo P1800 and the recently launched Volvo C40 Recharge are six decades apart, but an extraordinary design unites the two. The legendary sports coupé, which is now celebrating its 60th birthday, provided ideas for the design of the robust crossover model based on SUVs with coupé-like lines. At the end of 2021, the Volvo C40 Recharge will roll onto the streets, which will be the first Volvo series to be driven exclusively by a fully electric drive and to be sold exclusively online - this means that the vehicle has the potential to write a new, important chapter in the company's history.
Ten Facts You Always Wanted to Know About the New Ford Mustang Mach-E
"Below are ten facts you always wanted to know about the new Mustang Mach-E: First, low charging time. Ford Mustang Mach-E owners can drive up to 93 more miles after just ten minutes of charging at an IONITY charging station (with "extended range" battery via high-power 150 kW DC charging stations). Second, the Mustang Mach-E can already be found online at Ford's website. Third: Keys are a relic of yesterday. The Mustang Mach-E recognizes the owner's smartphone when the owner approaches the vehicle. The Mustang Mach-E then unlocks the doors and lets the car start. You don't even have to take the smartphone out of your pocket to do this. However, conventional vehicle keys will of course also be available on request. Fourth, the Mustang Mach-E is the first project of Ford Team Edison. Ford Team Edison is a new "company within the company" that develops electric vehicles. In naming it, it was inspired by the light bulb inventor Thomas Edison, who was a good friend of Henry Ford. Fifth, the Mustang Mach-E is updated via online updates. This future-proofs the car. In the future, software updates will be delivered continuously, for example for the voice activation system or for the driver assistance systems. Sixth: Award-winning interior design: A B&O premium sound system with ten speakers is optionally available for the Mustang Mach-E, one of which has been seamlessly and attractively integrated into the instrument panel in the form of a sound bar. This design has already won the iF Design Award. Seventh: High-tech glass. The panoramic glass roof features infrared protection to keep the interior cooler in summer and warmer in winter. A special layer in the glass also protects against ultraviolet radiation. Eighth, you can communicate with the Mustang Mach-E. The voice activation system even understands voice commands such as "Find the best Thai restaurant," thanks to cloud-based technology. Ninth, the Mustang Mach-E can be customized to suit the mood. The vehicle offers three driving modes that are selected via the touchscreen. The driving behavior, the displays and the ambient lighting, for example, vary according to the driving mode. Tenth: Ford Mustang Mach-E - a name like a legacy. The "Mach" designation has been used specifically for high-performance Mustang models since the 1960s, such as the Ford Mustang Mach 1, a car that visually gave the impression it could break the sound barrier."

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA is the heart of the Czech car manufacturer and tops the bestseller lists in numerous European countries. In the fourth generation of the OCTAVIA, the robust SCOUT and two other sporty RS variants complete the portfolio. By electrifying the powertrain using the new mild hybrid technology and two OCTAVIA iV models with plug-in hybrid drives, ŠKODA once again significantly reduces the CO2 emissions of the new OCTAVIA. The bestseller's IV variants drive up to 60 kilometers locally without emissions in the WLTP cycle, and the internal combustion engines are also constantly being further developed. They are even more efficient and ŠKODA has reduced the emission of nitrogen oxides by around 80 percent in the diesel generators of the new EVO generation. With two body variants, front or all-wheel drive, manual gearbox or direct shift gearbox (DSG) and five drive options - petrol, diesel, CNG, mild and plug-in hybrid - every ŠKODA customer will find the right OCTAVIA. The heart of the all-wheel drive in the OCTAVIA is the electronically controlled multi-plate clutch, which, following the extensive technical revision in the current sixth generation, is also significantly lighter than its predecessor.
