40 years of quattro: Audi's brand DNA in flux
Audi has produced more than 10.5 million cars with all-wheel drive in its history. In 2019, 45% of all customers will choose a quattro vehicle. Since 1980, four-wheel drive has increasingly become the brand DNA - with no sign of a midlife crisis so far. On the 40th Quattro birthday, we take a look at the milestones, the transformation of the drive concept, and look to the future.
Starting with the EV6, Kia’s EV lineup will carry a unique naming convention. The “EV” designation will be followed by a number that indicates the car’s position in the lineup. The E-GMP modular platform maximizes development efficiency and enables the Kia brand to expand its dedicated EV portfolio across multiple vehicle segments – sedans, CUVs, SUVs – in a short time and with minimal complexity. The architecture provides an adaptable foundation with a long wheelbase and wide stance. The EV6’s proportions unify Kia’s all-new “Opposites United” design language and deliver crossover functionality. The visual language combines classic sports car inspiration with high-tech cues, modern CUV styling and a coupe-like profile. The EV6 has the same 114.2-inch wheelbase as the Kia Telluride, and compares with the width of a Ford Mustang Mach E and the wheelbase and ground clearance of a Tesla Model Y.
