Hyundai Motor is launching comprehensive connectivity and design enhancements for the new IONIQ, the latest edition of its revolutionary eco-friendly model. As of its launch in 2016, IONIQ was the world's first car planned from the start to offer three electrified powertrains - hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric. The Hyundai IONIQ is now already upgrading its offer, with added technological features and a refreshed look. Hyundai keeps leading the way in future mobility, as many other manufacturers are still planning or just launching their first eco-mobility vehicles. The new IONIQ features advanced Blue Link connectivity services, SmartSense active safety and driving assistance systems and state-of-the-art infotainment features. In addition, both the exterior and interior design receive updates, while drivers of the new IONIQ Electric can also enjoy 36% added energy capacity thanks to an upgraded 38.3-kWh battery.
The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class - digital-analog revolution in the interior
"In the interior of the S-Class, modern luxury reaches the next level. The designers have created a feel-good ambience with a lounge character characterized by elegance, high quality and lightness. With its new architecture, modern surface design and ergonomic display arrangement, the instrument panel is a highlight. The goal and aspiration of the Mercedes-Benz interior designers was to harmonize digital and analog luxury in the interior. An S-Class has always been a pleasant place to travel and a relaxed place to work. With the new generation, the interior has fully developed into a "third place", a refuge between home and the workplace. Almost all the comfort dimensions of both short- and long-wheelbase S-Class variants have been improved, both in the front and rear seats. The feeling of spaciousness is correspondingly generous."
The Q3 45 TFSI e1 and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e2 mark the first step into the world of electrified Q models from Audi. Their technology package is very similar to the A3 45 TFSI e3: The 1.4 TFSI cooperates with a permanently excited synchronous machine (PSM) that outputs 85 kW of power and 330 Nm (243.4 lb-ft) of torque. Together, the two motors generate 180 kW (245 PS) of system output and 400 Nm (295.02 lb-ft) of system torque. Both the Q3 45 TFSI e and the Sportback take 7.6 seconds to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph), and both models reach a top speed of 210 km/h (130.5 mph). In the NEDC cycle, the Q3 45 TFSI e consumes 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km (138.4 to 168.0 US mpg) (39 to 32 grams of CO2(62.8 to 51.5 g/mi)). The Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e records the same values of 1.7 to 1.4 liters of fuel per 100 km (138.4 to 168.0 US mpg) (38 to 33 grams of CO2(61.2 to 53.1 g/mi)). Both compact SUVs can cover up to 61 km (37.9 mi) in the NEDC powered purely by electricity. In the WLTP, the distance is 51 km (31.7 mi) for the Q3 45 TFSI e and 50 km (31.07 mi) for the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e. Like with the Audi A3 TFSI e, the 96 prismatic cells of the compact and light high-voltage battery store 13.0 kWh of energy. This great value is achieved thanks to a new generation of prismatic cells. The Audi Q3 45 TFSI e1 and the Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI e2 can be charged using alternating current (AC) with an output of 3.6 kW, allowing an empty battery to recharge in slightly more than three hours.
The production debut of the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ is the culmination of a century of innovation and the beginning of a great new era. With testing of Cadillac’s inaugural electric luxury SUV running ahead of schedule, the brand announced that customers may place order reservations beginning in September 2021, with initial availability starting the first half of 2022. At launch, LYRIQ will be available with premier technologies and stirring performance capabilities enabled by the vehicle’s dedicated electric architecture. A 12-module, 100 kilowatt-hour battery pack and a rear-wheel-drive Ultium Platform deliver a Cadillac-estimated 340 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque — and a Cadillac-estimated over 300 miles of range with a full charge.
