The BMW iX - Outstanding efficiency and long range thanks to fifth-generation BMW eDrive technology
"Maximum efficiency is guaranteed by the fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology, which comprises the two electric motors, power electronics, charging technology and high-voltage storage. Developed by the BMW Group and manufactured in a sustainable production process without the use of critical raw materials from the so-called rare earths sector, the drive system will generate a maximum output of more than 370 kW/500 hp according to the latest calculations and accelerate the BMW iX from zero to 100 km/h in less than 5.0 seconds. At the same time, the clear goal is an outstandingly low combined power consumption of less than 21 kWh per 100 kilometers in the WLTP test cycle compared with the competition. With a gross energy content of more than 100 kWh, the latest-generation high-voltage storage system is expected to enable a range of more than 600 kilometers in the WLTP cycle. This is equivalent to more than 300 miles according to EPA's FTP-75 test cycle. "
The all-new 2022 Kia Carnival Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) replaces the outgoing Sedona to become a multifaceted and unexpected companion. Staking claim on the unoccupied space between SUV and family hauler, the Carnival arrives with a new name and is the first vehicle to be sold in the U.S. with Kia’s new logo proudly displayed on its sculpted hood. It pushes the boundaries on expected fronts in much the same way the Kia K5 did to redefine what a midsize sedan should be. Penned at Kia’s California design studio, the Carnival wears a bold and boxy appearance and conveys the visual language found on the brand’s recent and highly successful line of rugged utility vehicles - Telluride, Sorento, and Seltos. Inside, the three-row seven- or eight-passenger MPV delivers a premium level of refinement, savvy technology, and flexibility. And with best-in-class passenger room and best-in-class cargo room there is enough space to accommodate people, playthings, or plywood, depending on the day’s errands…or adventures. The Carnival is motivated by a 3.5-liter V6 engine making a best-in-class 290 horsepower. This powertrain provides up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity for confident trailer, boat, or camper excursions. And that confidence is amplified by an expansive roster of standard Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)1. Together, these elements make Carnival an exceptional combination of modern design, capability, safety and luxury.
Another highlight of the revised SANTA FE is the new third generation vehicle platform from Hyundai. It not only enables the seamless integration of the electrified drive train, but also creates a remarkably generous interior space with hardly any changes to the external dimensions: The Hyundai SANTA FE is the leader in its class in terms of leg and headroom on the rear seat bench. This also applies to the plug-in hybrid, which, like all other SANTA FE variants, can optionally be ordered as a seven-seater “Seven”, despite the additionally built-in battery pack. The Hyundai SANTA FE plug-in hybrid, which is extensively equipped as standard, can be further upgraded with three attractive packages. The trend package also includes leather seats, full LED projection headlights and LED taillights, as well as steering wheel heating. The Prime package also offers extras such as seat heating at the rear, ventilated front seats with memory function (driver's seat only), an electrically adjustable seat cushion extension, a tailgate that opens and closes at the push of a button, a head-up display and automatic level control on the rear axle .
