The new Maserati Grecale SUV is “The Everyday Exceptional”. Grecale strikes the right balance between versatility, elegance, performance and innovation, guaranteeing performance, comfort and safety, all at the same time. These features are combined with off-road capabilities and uncompromising driving pleasure. Developed at the Maserati Innovation Lab in Modena, the new SUV is produced at the Cassino plant. Grecale is a range within the range, the Trident brand’s fullest ever. An extremely wide range of engines is available: conventional internal combustion, hybrid and, in a year’s time, Grecale will also be the first full-electric SUV in Maserati history. Three versions will be rolled out at launch: GT, powered by a four-cylinder mild hybrid engine capable of delivering 300 hp; Modena, with a four-cylinder 330-hp mild hybrid engine; and the powerful Trofeo, equipped with a high-performance 3.0L 530-hp petrol V6 based on the Nettuno engine fitted to the MC20.
The new Nissan Qashqai - The new infotainment system
The new Nissan Qashqai offers an advanced infotainment system with numerous connected features and services. These include hassle-free smartphone integration, a WiFi hotspot for up to seven devices, and NissanConnect Services, a dedicated app for controlling and monitoring the vehicle remotely. The NissanConnect system's central display, which is enlarged to nine inches, has a higher resolution and serves as a digital control center for navigation, entertainment and vehicle settings. Smartphones can be connected via Apple CarPlay® (wireless for the first time) and Android Auto®. Various user profiles can be created to store personal navigation, music and system settings. Whether the music comes from one of the DAB radio stations or via streaming from the connected smartphone, the best playback is guaranteed thanks to the Bose® premium sound system with ten speakers, while the Bose Acoustimass® bass box in the trunk ensures crisp and powerful sound - enjoyed by all occupants on board, not just the driver and front-seat passenger. The new high-resolution 12.3-inch TFT display offers various configurable layouts and shows information on navigation, entertainment, traffic or vehicle depending on the setting; it is operated via a new control on the steering wheel. A "Kiriko" texture integrated into the digital background, as if made of cut glass, refers to Nissan's Japanese DNA.
Creativity, beauty and substance alone are not enough for a paradigm shift. All of the car’s surroundings, the way everything interacts, are also important. The FCA team has therefore constructed around the New 500 project a veritable system of physical and digital services and solutions to facilitate zero-emissions driving to the greatest extent possible. This was the spirit that resulted in the creation of a network alongside the New 500, in conjunction with our outstanding partners, to enrich and simplify electric mobility, and to make it more enjoyable. From the easyWallbox – the plug-and-play home charging solution developed exclusively by ENGIE Eps, via the ‘My Easy Charge’ apps (developed by Digital Solutions) so you can find a charging point anywhere in Europe, to a single card for charging and payment, valid throughout Europe at almost 200,000 charging stations. In terms of insurance, Assicurazioni Generali provide customized solutions based on driving style and actual use of the vehicle. And those who have concerns about switching to the New 500 electric have at their fingertips Fiat GOe LIVE, the free app on iOS and Android platforms to simulate the use of a 500e. The simulation highlights the potential economic and environmental benefits of using the New 500 rather than the customer's current car. The app also provides useful information on the e-Mobility experience, can locate charging stations throughout Europe and lets you book the New 500 online.
