Alpine has a great track record in endurance racing and is now taking on the challenge of entering the top category of the FIA WEC and the 24H of Le Mans 2021. Like its commitment to Formula 1, this new project in endurance racing demonstrates the ambition of Alpine, a brand born from competition, for competition. Approved by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile as the Alpine A480, the prototype is built on an Oreca chassis and powered by a 4.5-litre V8 supplied by Gibson Technology. It is fitted with Michelin tyres, in accordance with the regulations of the Hypercar class. The A480 will be driven by three experienced endurance drivers, Nicolas Lapierre, André Negrão, and Matthieu Vaxiviere. The race team will be managed by Philippe Sinault, Team Principal, as has been the case since 2014 with numerous successes in the LMP2 class.

SEAT is driving forward with its plans to electrify its vehicles and add even greater levels of efficiency. The process has already started, and now the brand is adding a second plug-in hybrid model to the range with the introduction of its first electrified SUV, the SEAT Tarraco e-HYBRID. The SEAT Tarraco is already an attractive proposition in the segment, and the introduction of a plug-in hybrid powertrain option will help the large SUV build on its position in the market. It brings a more balanced approach between dynamism and efficiency.
Born from the cooperation between Renault's French and Indian Design divisions, the Kiger show car is an SUV with an adventurous look exuding an attractive energy that catches both the eye and the mind. With its DNA it is predestined for the urban jungle as well as the great outdoors. At first glance, the Kiger show car stands out with its sculpted bonnet, slender windscreen and a semi-floating roof with a roof rack. On both sides, the tapered mirrors have been designed like airplane wings. At the rear, the roof drop is topped by a spoiler, giving the vehicle a very airy look. The lower section is more muscular and stockier, resting on four 19-inch wheels framed by large square arches that give strength to the exterior styling. The 210-mm ground clearance with reinforced lower flaps and prominent shoulders confirm the escape spirit of the SUV. The sporty side is accentuated by the dual centrally located exhaust tailpipes and the honeycomb patterns distributed around the vehicle.
