2021 Hyundai Santa Fe - SUV flagship offers space, comfort and safety at the highest level
Externally grown to 4.77 meters, the powerfully motorized and, depending on the equipment line, opulently equipped flagship of the brand impresses with more space, comfort and safety than ever before. The fact that the protection of the occupants is the top priority for the new Santa Fe is shown, for example, by the exit assistant used for the first time worldwide. It warns with an acoustic alarm if there is a risk of approaching traffic when leaving the car on a busy road, and in this case also prevents the deactivation of the electrical child safety device on the rear doors and thus prevents them from opening. The monitor display of the active blind spot assistant will also be used for the first time from summer 2019: If the indicator is activated, the real-time display of the area behind the car appears on the driver's display. The five-door model, which is available as a five- or seven-seater, front-wheel or all-wheel drive, with manual or automatic transmission and in the two equipment lines Style and Premium, also has an eye on the environment and the climate: the diesel with an output of 147 kW / 200 PS has been fulfilling since In summer 2019, the Euro 6d-TEMP-EVAP-ISC emissions standard, which has been binding since autumn last year, which, in addition to strict emissions limits, also limits the evaporation of fuel in the tank. Environmental friendliness is a self-commitment for the new Santa Fe anyway: The 2.2 liter diesel engine works with SCR urea injection
Commercial vehicle manufacturer Daimler Truck AG and lithium-ion battery manufacturer and developer Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited (CATL) – both global leaders in their fields – announced the intensification of their existing partnership based on their shared vision of CO2-neutral electrified trucking. CATL will be the supplier of lithium-ion battery packs for the Mercedes-Benz eActros LongHaul battery-electric truck, which is planned to be ready for series production in 2024. The supply will go beyond 2030. The batteries will combine high energy density with ultra-long cycle life as well as fast-charging ability to meet the unique requirements of battery-electric long-haul trucks. In addition, the companies intend to jointly design and develop even more advanced next-generation battery cells and packs for truck specific applications, with a focus on high modularity and scalability in order to support
With the BMW i Vision Circular, the BMW Group is demonstrating the consistent design of a car according to the principles of a circular economy. The overall design goal of this visionary vehicle was to create a vehicle that is optimized for closed material cycles and achieves a rate of 100% recycled materials or 100% recyclability. In addition to bio-based and certified raw materials, materials that have already passed through a product life cycle – so-called secondary materials – are used for this purpose. This also applies to the energy storage system: The solid-state battery of the BMW i Vision Circular is 100% recyclable and almost completely made from recycled materials. At the same time, it will achieve a considerably higher energy density with significantly fewer of the most valuable resources. “We have included circularity in our concept right from the start when designing the BMW i Vision Circular. That's why this visionary vehicle is full of innovative ideas that combine sustainability with new and inspiring aesthetics – we call this approach Circular Design,” explains Adrian van Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design. Circular Design is based on the four principles RE:THINK, RE:DUCE, RE:USE and RE:CYCLE.
