Ford announced today that, for the first time in Europe, orders are open for the Ford Mustang Mach-EGT, the most exciting version of the company's new all-electric SUV. The propulsion has more torque than any other road vehicle ever produced by Ford for European customers and the Mustang Mach-EGT is the Blue Oval's five-seater car with the highest acceleration: it is capable of shifting 0 to 100km / h (0-62mph) in just 3.7 seconds1. The dual-engine all-wheel drive with electric power, the futuristic MagneRide®2 adaptive suspension and the high-performance Brembo braking system allow you to combine sports car response with extreme agility. The Mustang MachEGT also boasts a unique traction calibration which, compared to the other four-wheel drive variants of the model, engages a greater percentage of torque at the rear axle.
The new BMW X3 xDrive30e Plug-in Hybrid
With a 10-year plan for sustainability, the BMW Group underscores its commitment to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement by focusing primarily on expanding electric mobility. Today, BMW and MINI brands with all-electric and plug-in hybrid drive systems already account for around 13.3 percent of all new registrations across Europe (source: IHS Markit New Registrations Report July 2020). This corresponds to 1.5 times the average share of all brands, which is around 8 percent. The Group expects this figure to rise to a quarter by 2021, a third by 2025 and 50 % by 2030. Vehicles of the BMW and MINI brands equipped with electrified drive systems are now offered in 74 markets worldwide, where more than 500,000 electrified vehicles have been sold through 2019. By the end of 2021, that figure will likely rise to more than 1 million. Despite pandemic-related restrictions, more BMW Group vehicles were sold in the first half of 2020 than in the corresponding period of the previous year. The BMW Group's sustainability targets aim to put more than seven million vehicles with electrified drive systems on the road worldwide by 2030, two-thirds of them fully electric variants. As a result of the massive expansion of electric mobility, the emissions produced by BMW Group vehicles per kilometer driven will be reduced by around 40 percent by 2030.
The BMW iX is ready for series production and is due to arrive on the world’s roads from November 2021. The BMW Group’s new technology flagship combines locally emission-free driving pleasure, sporting agility and a compelling operating range with a character profile dedicated squarely to sustainability. With its trailblazing design and an interior devoted to luxurious spaciousness, the BMW iX embodies a fresh new take on the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) concept. Conceived from the outset for purely electric mobility, this model is based on a new toolkit for the future, whose vast potential for innovations in the areas of automated driving, operation, connectivity and digital services translates into a premium mobility experience unparalleled in this segment.
