Like practically no other manufacturer, Volkswagen is identified with an extensive portfolio of electrified models: Alongside the purely electric ID.3 and ID.4 models that were recently added to the product range, a total of seven new plug-in hybrid models – from the Golf to the Touareg – have now been launched. The new electric and hybrid models (or PHEV for short) are fundamental components of the Way to Zero strategy that is devised to make Volkswagen a carbon-neutral company.
2021 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E with HPD Package Towing
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline begins arriving at Honda dealerships on Feb. 2, with bold new styling underscoring its rugged and versatile pickup truck capabilities. Ridgeline’s standard V6 power, fully independent suspension and standard torque-vectoring i-VTM4® all-wheel drive give it the capability to tackle challenging trails and treacherous roads with class-leading ride and handling. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) start at $36,490. Ridgeline continues to bring unmatched versatility, including the segment’s largest interior for passengers and gear, a brilliantly versatile bed featuring the class-exclusive In-Bed Trunk® lockable storage compartment, and best-in-class standard AWD model payload capacity. For the 2021 model year, Ridgeline features all-new sheet metal from the front roof pillars forward, including a new hood with a pronounced power bulge, a new squared off nose and upright grille, and new front fenders. Flanking the grille are new, brighter LED headlights bisected by the crossbar atop the grille, which is painted gloss black on Sport trims and Black Edition, and is chrome plated on RTL and RTL-E.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV is the sportiest version yet of the new, all-electric SUV from Mladá Boleslav. Its look is characterised by a range of black design features and large wheels, while the lowered sports chassis makes for a particularly dynamic driving experience. The interior adds to the sporty feel, thanks to decorative, carbon-style trims, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and seats with integrated headrests. ŠKODA’s new flagship model range now includes a SPORTLINE variant, offered in three performance levels. The ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 60 has an output of 132 kW, while the ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80 produces 150 kW. Both feature rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80x is equipped with two electric motors generating a combined output of 195 kW.
The design of the ID.4 GTX underscores its extraordinary character, combining driving fun with a robust look. The familiar light strip has been combined with powerful, dynamic elements – in particular, the three honeycomb elements that form the daytime running lights. They convey the vehicle’s sporty character even when it is stationary and, at the same time, establish a connection to the Golf GTI. Alongside the newly designed bumpers, the eye-catching elements at the rear include the 3D LED tail light cluster with brake lights that form an X.
