Snow, ice, wet roads, sub-zero temperatures; sand, dust, desert, unpaved roads, blistering heat. There’s no end to the number of landscapes you can travel through on a motorbike, nor to their diversity depending on the climate, weather or road conditions. That’s why, to ensure the best possible performance of the SEAT MÓ 125 100% electric scooter, the SEAT MÓ Quality and R&D team put it to the test in two opposing landscapes, the mountains of Baqueira Beret (Lleida) and the Tabernas Desert (Almería), in Spain, with a temperature difference of 55ºC between them, covering a total of 4,400 kilometres.
AAVision in January 1996 - Start of the Mercedes-Benz SUV success story 25 years ago
With the AAVision, Mercedes-Benz opened a new chapter in its successful ongoing product offensive in January 1996: The brand presented the concept vehicle at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. 25 years ago, it points in the direction that the M-Class (W 163) production vehicle will take a good year later. In May 1997, the M-Class marked the brand's successful launch into the sport utility vehicle (SUV) segment. Since fall 2015, the model family has been called the GLE. This locates the successful SUV in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Since the market launch of the M-Class in 1997, more than two million customers have opted for the off-roader. This makes the GLE the best-selling SUV in the history of Mercedes-Benz. When the AAVision was presented 25 years ago, Mercedes-Benz was in the midst of a product offensive: new model series further fanned out the brand's range. These include, for example, the A-Class (W 168, 1997) and the compact SLK roadster (R 170, 1996). With this growing portfolio, the brand lays the foundation for a successful start to the new millennium.
The electrification of the Nissan model range is progressing. The compact crossover Juke with a new hybrid drive can now be ordered at prices starting at 31,090 euros. The advanced electrified powertrain reduces emissions and fuel consumption while also impressing with driving pleasure and direct response. The internal combustion engine in the Juke was specially developed for use in a hybrid system. It delivers 69 kW (94 hp) and develops a maximum torque of 148 Nm. It is supported by an electric motor with 36 kW (49 hp) and a torque of 205 Nm. In addition, the system consists of a 15 kW starter generator, an inverter and a water-cooled 1.2 kWh battery. All in all, the powertrain offers 25 percent more power than the current petrol engine, while reducing fuel consumption by around 40 percent in city driving and up to 20 percent in mixed traffic (figures subject to homologation). The expected fuel consumption of the Juke Hybrid is 5.0 to 5.2 liters per 100 kilometers, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 114 to 117 grams per kilometer (depending on equipment; consumption and emission values are subject to homologation).
