The BMW iX will be launched with a choice of two model variants. Both are equipped with an electric all-wheel-drive system, with combined output of 385 kW/523 hp in the BMW iX xDrive50 and 240 kW/326 hp in the BMW iX xDrive40. The drive technology’s efficiency paired to the very latest battery cell technology results in WLTP-calculated ranges of up to 630 kilometres (391 miles) in the BMW iX xDrive50 and up to 425 kilometres (264 miles) in the BMW iX xDrive40. Also set to join the model line-up at a later date is the BMW iX M60 with a maximum output in excess of 440 kW/600 hp that promises an exceptionally sporty all-electric driving experience.
The new Nissan Qashqai - the 3rd generation of the successful crossover is coming
The Nissan Qashqai has changed the European automobile market forever and has brought many imitators onto the scene. Now the third generation of the crossover pioneer is getting ready to continue a unique success story. Prototypes of the new model are currently running test kilometers on the roads of Europe to ensure that the next Qashqai will exceed customer expectations from next year. The first Qashqai came on the market in 2007 and established the middle crossover segment in Europe. The second generation was introduced in 2014 and has sold more than a million times to date. The third edition of the successful model will be launched in the coming year - based on the innovative new alliance platform CMF-C. The new edition follows the guidelines that already shaped the concept, design and development of the first two model generations: These include an appealing design, intelligent packaging and efficient drives, combined with superior quality and a driving experience that is otherwise known from higher vehicle classes. The new Qashqai will again raise the bar in the crossover segment
The Jeep® brand has introduced its new Wrangler 4xe, marking the arrival of the most capable, technically advanced and eco-friendly Wrangler ever. Jeep Wrangler 4xe models will be available in Europe, China and the United States by early 2021. The Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe models – introduced last year in Geneva – began arriving in Europe this summer. The new Jeep 4xe models follow the introduction of the Jeep Grand Commander PHEV in China last year. The Wrangler 4xe’s plug-in hybrid powertrain is capable of up to 25 miles (according to US homologation cycle) of nearly silent, zero-emission electric-only propulsion, making it commuter friendly as an all-electric daily driver without range anxiety and the most-capable and eco-friendly Jeep vehicle off-road – combined with the open-air freedom that only Jeep Wrangler offers. Jeep will offer electrification options on each nameplate in the next few years as it strives to become the leader in eco-friendly premium technology. Electrified Jeep vehicles will carry the 4xe badge. Jeep electric vehicles will be the most efficient and responsible Jeep vehicles ever, taking performance, 4x4 capability and driver confidence to the next level.
As it is always the case at Audi, the design is not an end in itself but rather the connection between form and function: In line with electric mobility, the design of the e-tron GT enables sophisticated aerodynamics – aesthetics thus also arise from efficiency. The e-tron GT deliberately adopts the established design elements of the e-tron, the first electric car from Audi, and refines them in a targeted manner.
