The design of the Fiat Tipo has been completely refreshed in the new model year. It now looks even more modern, dynamic and elegant. The visual identification mark on the front of the vehicle is the newly designed radiator grille with the new FIAT logo and lettering. After the new Fiat 500, the Fiat Tipo is the brand's second model to adopt these new design elements. The headlights and taillights of the Fiat Tipo have also been redesigned. With full LED lights, they not only enhance the overall look, but also ensure a more modern look and increase active and passive safety thanks to improved visibility. In line with the pursuit of greater sustainability, the new headlights and taillights also consume less electricity. This relieves the load on the alternator and reduces consumption and CO2 emissions. The lower part of the bumper has been upgraded with elements in the look of brushed chrome. New designs, including a diamond finish, are available for the 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Volvo Cars Moment - Recharge - virtual event
The future of Volvo Cars is electric and the new Volvo C40 Recharge is the latest manifestation of its commitment to a zero emission future. The C40 Recharge has all the benefits of an SUV but with a lower and sleeker design. It is based on the CMA vehicle platform and the first Volvo model in history designed as pure electric only. Following the introduction of the XC40 Recharge and now the C40 Recharge, Volvo Cars will roll out several additional electric models in coming years. Already by 2025, it aims for 50 per cent of its global sales volume to consist of fully electric cars, with the rest hybrids. By 2030, it plans for every car it sells to be pure electric.
Electric cars are quiet, clean and dynamic - but do they offer the same level of safety as a classic four-wheel drive vehicle on a slippery road surface? The Volvo XC40 is perfect for answering this question. With the premium compact SUV, the customer can choose between a wide variety of engines and drive concepts: combustion, mild and plug-in hybrids as well as a fully electric version, front-wheel drive, mechanical all-wheel drive and, with the Pure Electric model, all-wheel drive by means of electric motors on the front and rear axles. The Volvo XC40 is the latest addition to the model range and has risen from scratch to number two in the brand's internal sales ranking. It combines typical SUV advantages such as a raised seating position and good space with an attractive lifestyle appearance, high functionality - and a versatile range of drives. The series underlines its pioneering role in the field of electrification: The Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 AWD is the brand's first fully electric model.
Audi continues its electrification campaign in the compact class: Presales of the A3 Sportback 45 TFSI e will start in Germany this week. The brand with the four rings is thereby complementing the A3 Sportback 40 TFSI e with a sporty model that has more power and more extensive equipment. Its plug-in hybrid drive has a system output of 180 kW (245 PS) and 400 Nm (295.0 lb-ft) of system torque. Like its sister model, the new A3 Sportback 45 TFSI e is equipped with a 1.4-liter combustion engine. It outputs 110 kW (150 PS) and 250 Nm (184.4 lb-ft) of torque. The electric drive is powered by a permanently excited synchronous machine that outputs 80 kW and 330 Nm (243.4 lb-ft) of torque.
