Efficient, emotive and electrifying – these attributes neatly sum up the ENYAQ iV. In launching its first all-electric SUV, the Czech car manufacturer has taken the biggest step yet in its electromobility strategy. The new ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. It is built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany. ŠKODA’s new flagship boasts generous amounts of space as is typical of the brand, and – thanks to its emotive design language – its appearance is electrifying too. Inside, new Design Selections replace the classic trim levels, while a clear and new structure of the options available means the car can be configured with just a few clicks. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear- or all-wheel drive, and there are five power levels and three battery sizes to choose from. The range of more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The car will be launched in the spring of 2021.
The Audi e-tron S Sportback - the exterior design
"The Audi e-tron S and Audi e-tron S Sportback reveal their electric power at first glance. Their front and rear bumpers are strongly contoured, the air curtains are particularly large and expressively drawn. At the rear, the diffuser insert runs almost the full width of the vehicle. The wheel arches are 23 millimeters wider on both sides, giving the cars a very powerful appearance. Silver-colored add-on parts accentuate the front and rear - an exclusive feature for the S models, as do the aluminum exterior mirror housings. Large parts of the lower bodywork are painted in a contrasting color as an option. The light in both cars comes optionally from digital Matrix LED headlights - another world innovation in large-scale production that Audi unveiled in fall 2019 with the e-tron Sportback. Broken down into 1.3 million pixels each, the light can be controlled with high precision, enabling many new functions. In tight spots, for example, it marks the car's position in the lane, helping the driver stay safely centered."
The Tonale’s power makes its debut on the road in Tempio Voltiano, the celebrated location of Alessandro Volta’s inventions in the beautiful setting of Lake Como. A symbolic location to highlight the brand’s “metamorphosis”, it was here more than 200 years ago that the Italian scientist created his most famous invention: the battery, the first generator of dynamic electricity. A scientific landmark in modern history, this instrument allows our technological civilization to function. A precursor to the concept of sustainability, Alessandro Volta obsessively studied nature in order to replicate it for the benefit of humanity. This innovative approach, which is fully embraced by Alfa Romeo, demonstrates how, with its “mechanical creations”, sustainable technological development must imitate nature and take inspiration from it in order to adapt and live in harmony with it. Therefore, the Italian brand’s latest chapter couldn’t help but begin in Tempio Voltiano. With Tonale, Alfa Romeo has radically evolved and launched itself into a new, technological, sustainable and electrified era. The Tonale’s road capabilities are clear. The technology and connectivity on board make it the most technological Alfa Romeo to date. It combines quality and attention-to-detail with dynamic features to reinvent sportiness in the 21st century.
The all-new Mazda CX-60 PHEV introduces the company’s first plug-in full hybrid technology to the European SUV market. The most important model it has introduced for over a decade, Mazda’s new flagship represents everything that the company has built into its DNA over the last 100 years, from outstanding exterior and interior design to the finest Japanese craftsmanship, the latest innovations in human-centric technologies and a world-class powertrain. The all-new Mazda CX-60 PHEV‘s beautiful and dynamic styling conveys the intelligence and elegance of the latest developments in Kodo design - the Japanese concept of Ma, which is the calm and dignified beauty of empty space - woven into the toughness of the striking front-engine, rear-wheel drive SUV architecture. Uniquely Mazda and deeply rooted in Japanese heritage, the elegant, premium quality interior design further introduces the ideas of Kaichou - an element of disruption which mixes different materials and textures such as maple wood, nappa leather, uniquely worked Japanese textiles and chrome details, and Musubu – the art of binding which was the inspiration for a specially detailed instrument panel stitching.
