The Volvo C40 Recharge is the first Volvo model in the company’s history to be designed as pure electric only. The C40 Recharge is based on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA), an advanced vehicle platform co-developed within the Geely Group which provides Volvo with the necessary economies of scale for this segment. The C40 Recharge has all the benefits of an SUV but with a lower and sleeker design featuring improved aerodynamics. It features a striking rear-end design to go with this lower roofline, while the new front design introduces a new face for electric Volvos and includes headlights with state-of-the-art pixel technology. Inside, the C40 Recharge offers the high seating position that most Volvo drivers prefer, and is available in colour and decor options unique to the model. It is also the first Volvo model with a completely leather-free interior.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo - full Cross Turismo program right from the start
Four derivatives of the Taycan Cross Turismo are available right from the start. The Performance Battery Plus with a total capacity of 93.4 kWh is always on board as standard. The high-tech chassis with all-wheel drive and adaptive air suspension is standard on all four models. The optional off-road package increases the ground clearance by up to 30 millimeters. This means that the Cross Turismo can also be driven on demanding routes off the beaten track. The standard driving program "Gravel Mode" improves suitability for bad roads. Visually, the Taycan Cross Turismo is based closely on the Mission E Cross Turismo concept study presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018: the silhouette is determined by the sporty, sloping roofline - called the “flyline” by the Porsche designers. The off-road design elements include wheel arch trims, independent front and rear lower parts as well as the side skirts. In combination with the Offroad Design package, the Cross Turismo has special flaps on the corners of the front and rear bumpers and on the ends of the rocker panels. These ensure a striking appearance and at the same time protect against falling rocks
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 .
The turbocharged three-litre flat-six in the new 911 GTS delivers 353 kW (480 PS). Maximum torque is 570 Nm, an increase of 20 Nm over its predecessor. Zero to 100 km/h takes just 3.3 seconds (911 Carrera 4 GTS: Fuel consumption combined (NEDC) 10.5 – 9.7 l/100 km, Fuel consumption combined (WLTP) 11.4 – 10.6 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions combined (NEDC) 240 – 222 g/km, CO₂ emissions combined (WLTP) 259 – 240 g/km) in the 911 Carrera 4 GTS Coupé with the eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK): three tenths faster than its predecessor. A seven-speed manual transmission with a particularly short throw is available for all 911 GTS models as an alternative to the PDK.
