In the extended range version, the Mustang Mach e not only achieves an electric range of over 400 km in summer, but also has some interesting detailed solutions on board that have unique selling points.
After the model launch in 2019, the ID.3 is part of the popular mid-range BEV as an electric counterpart to the Golf and a symbol of Volkswagen's move into electromobility. The knowledge gained from the first 3 years of the model was improved with the last facelift. We tested the current ID.3 Pro extensively and took a closer look at the new features.
The abbreviation GT for Grand Tourismo, i.e. for the large-format touring car, has a long tradition at Volkswagen. The abbreviation was even used for the compact formats of the Golf and Polo. This designation got its original meaning in the classics of car history, and this naturally includes icons such as the Mustang GT. Now Volkswagen is setting a milestone with the sporty GTX variant with the shapely ID.5 GT.
With over 50 million units, the Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car in the world. In the USA alone it is one of the most popular car models, in Europe this model designation has been paused for a good 13 years and was sold as the Auris. With the version updated since 2018, it has the original name again. Since then, the golf opponent has been called Corolla again.
The Renault Zoe as a trendsetter for entry into electromobility at Renault already has a small tradition. In the last NCAP crash test from December 2021, the base model Zoe "Zen" did not get a single star in the overall rating. The shock at Renault must have been very deep, because the first test in 2013 was still a full 5 stars. However, the revised safety standards in the crash test now make the basic model look significantly worse. Renault reacted to this with the current revision of the price list.
Since the introduction of the Volvo XC40 as a compact SUV in 2017, sales figures in Europe have increased steadily from year to year. The purely electric SUV version combines the zero-emission drive with a sophisticated armada of assistance systems. Volvo wants to continue to set the safety standards in automotive engineering and is therefore upgrading the current cars with driver assistance systems and noticeably increasing occupant protection. In the relatively mild winter, we were able to extensively experience the purely electric and probably future-oriented technology of the Volvo XC40.
