The new ŠKODA ENYAQ COUPÉ iV makes a statement with its dynamic looks and sporty, elegant lines. It complements the successfully launched ŠKODA ENYAQ iV, adding an even more emotive variant to the range. The ENYAQ COUPÉ RS iV also marks the debut of the brand’s first all-electric member of the sporty RS family. While the roofline gently slopes towards the rear from the B-pillar, the new coupé offers plenty of space in the rear and a boot capacity of 570 l. Just like in the ENYAQ iV, the classic trim levels for the interior have been replaced with the Design Selections. There is a choice of two battery sizes, rear- or all-wheel drive, and four power variants with outputs ranging from 132 kW to 220 kW (RS variant). The outstanding drag coefficient (cd) of 0.234 is even better than that of the ENYAQ iV and, depending on the specification, enables a range of more than 540 km in the WLTP cycle.
Strong demand for the Toyota GR Yaris
With the new GR Yaris, Toyota is bringing real motorsport to the road in a compact format - and this mixture is very popular with German customers. In February 2021 alone, Toyota sold over 1,100 units of the little athlete in Germany. The new GR Yaris, launched last autumn, is the second Toyota model after the GR Supra to be developed in collaboration with the experts of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Team. The well-trained small car has a lot of experience and expertise from the World Rally Championship (WRC), in which Toyota has been highly successful again for several years. And not only that: The GR Yaris even serves as the current homologation model for the WRC
Aimed at the young and dynamic customer, the New Panda Sport is marked out by its distinctive aesthetics: the new two-tone 16” ‘Sport’ alloy wheels with black and red tires; the handles and wing mirror caps in the same color as the bodywork, on demand in gloss black paired with a black roof (optional); and the exclusive chrome “Sport” logo on the side panel, above the direction indicator. A new and exclusive Matt Gray livery is also available. The same bold features can also be found in the interiors, where the standouts include the new titanium-colored dashboard, specific door panels in eco-leather, black ceiling and new seats with dark gray upholstery, techno-leather details, fabric side panels and red stitching. And for the customer who wants an even bolder image, the New Panda Sport can be fitted on demand with the Pandemonio Pack – a clear homage to the kit launched in 2006 on the Panda 100 HP – which includes red brake calipers, blacked-out windows and the new techno-leather steering wheel with red stitching. For the first time on the model, the features as standard include the new 7” touchscreen radio with DAB digital system, set up for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, to fully integrate your smartphone, which can be placed in a useful mount above the radio.
The VISION EQXX from Mercedes-Benz has now taken to the roads of Europe and has demonstrated its outstanding range and efficiency. Travelling from Sindelfingen across the Swiss Alps and Northern Italy, to its destination of Cassis on the Côte d'Azur, it effortlessly covered more than 1,000 km in everyday traffic, on a single battery charge. The journey started in cold and rainy conditions, and was undertaken at regular road speeds, including prolonged fast-lane cruising at up to 140 km/h on the German autobahn and near the speed limit elsewhere. The battery's state of charge on arrival was around 15 percent, amounting to a remaining range of around 140 kilometres, and the average consumption was a record-breaking low of 8.7 kWh per 100 kilometres.
