With the debut of the new 2022 Navigator, Lincoln is introducing two new Black Label themes to its portfolio. The new themes – Central Park and Invitation – build on the brand’s commitment to exquisite craftsmanship while adding new elements for clients to enjoy. The Black Label experience represents the very best that Lincoln has to offer, with exclusive member benefits and specially curated interiors, creating a personalized experience for clients that they can make their own. Currently available on Navigator, Aviator and Nautilus, Lincoln Black Label saw a sales increase of 15 percent in the first half of 2021 – 8 percent of total SUV sales. On Navigator, Black Label sales improved 35 percent this year, representing more than 20 percent of all Navigators sold. Specially curated Black Label themes are designed to evoke an experience that is uniquely Lincoln, using the finest materials such as premium Venetian leathers and designer woods. Designers tend to even the smallest details – from intricate laser-etched wood designs to unique stitching and perforation on the premium leathers – all coming together to bring warmth, comfort and a true feeling of luxury.
Making of the Lamborghini Huracán STO in Madrid
With its V10 naturally aspirated 640 hp (470 kW) power plant producing 565 Nm at 6,500 rpm, the rear-wheel drive Huracán STO delivers exhilarating acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 9.0 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h. However, its heart beats with the exhilaration and emotion of a racecar. Superior aerodynamic efficiency, extensive use of lightweight materials, unfettered steering and first-class braking performance, ensure the Huracán STO delivers the emotion of a track experience on every road drive.
The BEV segment is growing rapidly, however it is clear that many new electric models are positioned in the premium class, the more expensive one. At the same time, the demand for modern, safe and practical electric cars that are particularly accessible to the general public is growing. The new MG5 Electric is the perfect answer. It is the world's first fully electric station wagon with a spacious, practical and innovative interior. With a generous 479-liter luggage space, which can be expanded to nearly 1,400 liters with the rear seats folded down, the MG5 Electric offers plenty of efficiency. Additionally, like the Marvel R Electric and ZS EV, the MG5 Electric will be available with the MG iSMART connectivity system which includes the smartphone app as standard. The front wheels are driven by an electric motor that produces 115 kW (156 hp) and 260 Nm of torque. The MG5 Electric is initially offered with a 61.1 kWh battery and a range of 400 km (WLTP). At a later stage, a version with a 50.3 kWh battery will also be available, providing a WLTP range of 320 km. Both battery-powered versions of the 100% electric station wagon will allow fast charging (AC) thanks to the 11 kW three-phase on-board charger. The MG5 Electric will arrive in MG Stores in the first quarter of 2022, with two trim levels (Comfort and Luxury) and starting prices for Europe of less than 30,000 euros. More details on the MG5 Electric, including all pricing, will be released at market launch.
The new era of technology on which Audi has embarked can also be experienced in the interior of the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron. The instrument panel introduces itself with progressive elegance and underlines the airy feeling of spaciousness. The cockpit features a distinctly three-dimensional design, and its geometric volumes are interrelated in an electrifying way. In both the electric SUVs, the operating and display units take on the function of design elements more than ever. The digital instrument for the driver is embedded like a diamond between two volumes – a short one on the left-hand side, which incorporates an air vent, and a long one on the right-hand side. It extends all the way to the front passenger door and integrates further air vents. The central MMI touch display, which appears clean and light, occupies the space in front of it. It is tilted toward the driver and is positioned within ergonomically easy reach. A lean inlay, known as the tech layer, lies above the display and connects it with the instrument panel. The choice of surface materials for this panel includes open-pore lime wood, aluminum in two different designs, and plastic. The inlay in the S line interior will also be available as an alternative shortly after market launch with an innovative, anthracite-colored technical fabric that is made partly of recycled materials.
