Five workers, four months and a project that exemplifies the labour and industrial transformation that we will experience in the coming years and in which internal talent plays a key role: from the assembly line, to lines of code. A pioneering programme to train these workers in software and incorporate them as junior programmers at SEAT:CODE. “What we aim to do is show that we are capable of transforming people who are currently in the factory , changing their role, their lives and their future through technology so that they can contribute in a different scenario” explains Carlos Buenosvinos, head of SEAT:CODE. This is the story of a great challenge.
Audi e-tron GT experience - Interview Design - Marc Lichte, Head of Design AUDI AG
The exterior of the Audi e-tron GT is a dynamic work of art. Every surface and every line is coherent in itself - from the headlights, optionally with Audi laser light, to the large diffuser at the rear. Together, the details create a sculpture that has been shaped by the wind itself. The interior, too, corresponds to that of a classic Gran Turismo: the driver and front passenger sit sportily low, separated from each other by a wide center console, and the rear seats also offer enough space for adults. With its progressive elegance, the interior design emphasizes the car's character.
To mark the eagerly anticipated release of No Time To Die, Jaguar’s latest XF Saloon found itself involved in a thrilling chase across London, as Jaguar Racing’s Formula E driver Mitch Evans aimed to be amongst the very first to see the film. The action is set against some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks including the Shard, Tower Bridge, City Hall and Millennium Bridge. Mitch, who is at the wheel of the Santorini Black XF R-Dynamic HSE, is unaware he is being pursued by free runner and Parkour athlete Lynn Jung. The reason for their chase? He has unwittingly dropped his tickets to the screening and Lynn is determined to ensure his wait to see No Time To Die is over. The six-mile chase starts in Laffone Street, close to Tower Bridge, and weaves its way across the city with Lynn running, jumping and somersaulting in pursuit of Mitch, who is enjoying the XF’s luxury, comfort and serenity thanks to its Active Noise Cancellation and Cabin Air Ionisation technology. Distanced from the noise and chaos of the city around him, Mitch focuses on the drive, making the most of the XF’s precise, intuitive steering – and the responsive, refined performance of its 300PS Ingenium engine. The action concludes in London’s famous Baker Street, where the tickets are returned in spectacular style, allowing Mitch to finally enjoy No Time to Die.
As elegant as a coupé, as strong as an SUV and all-electric to boot: The ID.5 GTX is set to make its international exhibition debut as of 07 September – as a disguised concept at the IAA Munich Motor Show. The first SUV coupé based on the Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) wows with its elegant design and powerful dual engine four-wheel drive. And the ID.5 GTX is fully connected, can receive updates over-the-air and is fitted with Car2X technology. The ID.5 GTX is the first all-electric powered SUV coupé from Volkswagen. With its fluid lines, the ID.5 GTX is elegant and sporty. Short overhangs and big wheels highlight its strong character. In the high front, the IQ.Light LED matrix headlights, which generate an intelligently controlled high beam, give the front of the car a likeable look. The light strip that tapers towards the Volkswagen logo has been combined with three powerful, illuminated honeycomb elements on both the driver and passenger side. They complement the signature of the low beam and convey the athletic character even while stationary. The flat sloping A pillars positioned right near the front give the roof line an elegant flow – it stretches low over the body and tapers out in an integrated rear spoiler. At the rear, horizontal lines accentuate the width, with the light strip attracting the most attention. The LED rear lights with a 3D design complete the feeling of luxury.
