A list of 12 of the most important moments for the Jeep® brand from those eight memorable decades.
2021 Lexus LS 500 Design in Silver
Creating an iconic vehicle to set the tone for a luxury automaker is no simple task. The first-generation LS debuted in 1989 with this monumental goal to help shape the brand. It built the foundation of Lexus with the high praise earned by its exceptional quietness and comfort. Chief Branding Officer and Master Driver Akio Toyoda positions the LS―in all its generations―as “a model that gives rise to transformation through the spirit of constant innovation and by providing new technologies and value for the times.” The 2021 Lexus LS looks to build on the success of the all-new LS that launched in 2018, adding additional refinement and technology to an already strong dynamic package. The LS, like all Lexus vehicles, relies on core principals of the brand such as Takumi craftsmanship, or a meticulous artisanship to its construction, and Omotenashi, an anticipatory hospitality that caters to a guest’s needs before they need them. The new LS will also incorporate a new philosophical change to its design known as the Lexus Driving Signature, which looks to set a new standard for vehicle development and refinement moving forward.
The all-electric Volvo C40 Recharge, which was recently awarded the Top Safety Pick+ by the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for its exceptional level of safety, comes with an additional drive variant: As a supplement to the all-wheel drive version, an entry-level model with a 170 kW (231 hp) electric motor and front-wheel drive available. In conjunction with a 69 kWh high-voltage battery, it offers a range of up to 423 kilometers in the combined WLTP cycle. The battery can be charged from 10 to 80 percent within 32 minutes at fast charging stations. The starting price for the Volvo C40 Recharge Pure Electric is 48,850 euros (RRP including 19% VAT). The Volvo C40 Recharge Single Motor Pure Electric expands the all-electric range of the Swedish premium car manufacturer. The company wants to encourage even more people to switch to electromobility. From 2030, only fully electrically powered models will be sold.
Three, two, one - go! The ŠKODA AFRIQ could start immediately on a special stage of the legendary Dakar Rally. The eighth ŠKODA student car is a spectacular rally version of the ŠKODA KAMIQ. The crossover model is thus serving as the basis for a trainee car for the first time. The experts from ŠKODA Motorsport were more involved in the development of the ŠKODA AFRIQ than with any other student car. The project of the 25 trainees, including three women, pays homage to the roots and the original home of the 'Dakar' and at the same time refers to ŠKODA AUTO's responsibility for the Volkswagen Group's activities in North Africa.
