The ID.4 is Volkswagen’s first all-electric SUV and the brand’s first global EV. Built on Volkswagen’s MEB electric vehicle architecture—the modular electric drive matrix—it marries the strengths of a purpose-built EV with performance, packaging and value, features that have marked the brand for decades. The ID.4 competes in the world’s largest market segment—compact SUVs—and is currently produced in Germany and China; in the future, it will also be assembled in the United States.
BMW Group@IAA Mobility 2021 Highlights
The BMW Group is putting circular economy and sustainable urban mobility at the centre of its presence at the 2021 IAA Mobility. At the motor show, the company is consistently demonstrating its sustainability and CO2 targets as well as its concrete measures and concepts to achieve these goals. The BMW Group is increasing the pace of its efforts to combat climate change. Looking ahead to the introduction of the Neue Klasse, the company is further strengthening its self-defined objectives, announced in summer last year, to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, whilst also committing itself to a clear course that supports the 1.5 degree target for the limitation of global warming. The Neue Klasse will also see the BMW Group hugely increase its use of secondary materials with a firm focus on the principles of the circular economy, whilst also promoting better framework conditions for establishing a market for secondary materials.
G80 is at the core of the Genesis sedan lineup and offers a perfect balance of comfort and refined performance. Building on the popular G80’s foundation of bold design and innovative features, new G80 3.5T AWD Sport trims add dynamic design elements to the G80 lineup by offering more athletic exterior and interior design features. Several unique design features set G80 3.5T AWD Sport trims apart, including the vehicle’s front fascia with a grille in dark glossy chrome, and a three-dimensional wing-shaped front bumper.

G80 3.5T AWD Sport trims come with exclusive 19 inch or 20 inch Sport Alloy Wheels. G80 3.5T AWD Sport trims also feature an all-new, exclusive new color: ‘Cavendish Red.’ The name is inspired by a cliffside township on the Northeast of Prince Edward Island in Canada, while the color was drawn from the area’s famous red sand. Inside, G80 3.5T AWD Sport trims receive the Sport model-specific three-spoke steering wheel, while the dashboard garnish comes in two different designs – standard Sport Aluminum and optional real Carbon Fiber. Customers will also be able to choose new Sport-exclusive seat quilting designs based on their choice of a diamond or V pattern. G80 3.5T AWD Sport Prestige trims also include Rear-Wheel Steering, a first in the Genesis lineup, and a Sport Tuned Electronically Controlled Suspension.
