Beauty, technology and a hint of the future come together in Toyota’s new flagship sedan, the all-new 2021 Mirai. Toyota has fully rebooted the Mirai as a premium rear-wheel drive sports-luxury FCEV with striking design, cutting-edge technology, more engaging driving performance and a significantly longer EPA-estimated range rating. The model name, which means future in Japanese, is wholly appropriate, as the 2021 Mirai is powered by the latest evolution of the brand’s advanced fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) powertrain. The body is lower, longer, and wider, with its bolder stance accentuated by standard 19-inch alloy wheels. A more powerful fuel cell system provides a more engaging driving experience than its pioneering forerunner. The rear-wheel drive layout and four-wheel independent suspension deliver a true sports-luxury sedan driving feel, with greater handling agility than before, yet also with a more comfortable ride.
New Opel Mokka - First-class aerodynamics for more efficiency and fewer emissions
The new Opel Mokka scores not only with its bold, clear design, but also with its best efficiency. The engineers and designers have made the newcomer exciting and aerodynamic at the same time - typically Opel. This is proven by the drag coefficient, which is 0.32 for the Opel Mokka. This means that the new Mokka has one of the lowest drag coefficient values in its class and continues the series of Opel aerodynamic champions, from the record holder Calibra (drag coefficient 0.26) to the current class winners Astra (drag coefficient 0.26) and Insignia (cW 0.25) is sufficient. Due to the ever stricter CO2 regulations, aerodynamics are also gaining in importance - for the automotive industry as well as for customers. If the vehicle has less drag, it needs less energy to drive, and fuel consumption and emissions are reduced. That is why the new Mokka, like all newly developed Opel models, went through extensive tests at the Research Institute for Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Engines Stuttgart (FKFS) in the wind tunnel of the University of Stuttgart. Depending on the model variant, the Opel engineers were able to reduce the aerodynamic drag to an excellent drag coefficient of 0.32
The new Toyota GR Yaris is a pure performance car, born from Toyota's title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship. Forged from success in the heat of competition, it brings motorsport technology and design directly to the world of the road car, true to TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's ethos for making ever-better cars that are intrinsically rewarding and fun to drive. Positioned at the top of the all-new Yaris range, the GR Yaris is a unique model that benefits from the design and engineering skills of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing and Tommi Mäkinen Racing, Toyota's partner in the WRC. As well as serving as the official homologation model for development of the next Yaris WRC car, it also has all the attributes required for owners looking to compete successfully in local rally competitions. Scheduled for launch in the second half of 2020, it will follow the GR Supra as Toyota's second global GR model.
The demand to drastically reduce vehicle emissions is being pushed ever further. PEUGEOT is one of the first manufacturers to offer an electric version with a hydrogen fuel cell in series production in the compact commercial vehicle segment from 2022, in addition to the combustion and battery-electric models. The new PEUGEOT e-Expert Hydrogen is thus the latest symbol of the brand's "Extended power of choice" strategy. This gives customers the opportunity to choose from a wide range of engines the one that best suits their individual needs. The hydrogen fuel cell electric version is proof of the rapid evolution of the PEUGEOT Expert range. After its launch in 2020, the battery-powered PEUGEOT e-Expert was voted “International Van of the Year”2 in early 2021. It is the sixth PEUGEOT model to receive this prestigious award since 1992.
