Hyunda Ioniq 5 UNIQ with long-distance qualities

The current Ioniq 5 is a technical treat in the field of 800 volt BEV vehicles. With some unusual ideas, it stands out as a new rival in the phalanx of electric SUV top dogs. It scores with many functional design elements that completely underline the E character. With its dimensions of 4,60 m in length and 1,90 in width, it is in the midfield. For this he uses the interior very consistently and offers five people enough space for long distances

Nissan Ariya Evolve Pack

Nissan Ariya Evolve Pack - The long-distance crossover

After the launch of the Nissan Leaf, Nissan took a good decade to present the new Ariya in the middle class in 2020 at the Yokohama Motor Show. It took even longer until the final start of production in 2022 due to delivery problems with semiconductor components. In the meantime, the competitors VW and Hyundai have already been able to place their competing models in this class. In the middle of the northern German winter, we were able to test the brand new Ariya extensively in the highest equipment variant, the Evolve Pack, in inhospitable conditions.

As early as September 2021, the plant for the battery-electric Nikola TRE BEV and the fuel cell-powered Nikola TRE FCEV to follow was officially opened in Ulm. The first vehicles from the joint venture between Nikola and IVECO have now been produced. The logistics company Total Transportation Services, which last year signed a letter of intent for a total of 100 BEV and FCEV trucks, has already launched the first models in the USA. In Europe, the first BEV trucks are delivered to the Port of Hamburg. The European model is manufactured by Iveco in Ulm. We're going to take a look back at the last exciting few months.

Kia EV6 GT Line 2022

Kia EV6 GT-Line in the 2022 travel test

Sportier and as a coupé also an eye-catcher, the EV 6 presents itself as the more potent brother of the Ioniq 5. Kia is finally giving the Stromer the qualities that make it the ideal travel companion on long journeys. In addition to the large battery pack and the powerful engine, the 800 volt on-board electronics are particularly interesting for a very fast charging process on the superchargers. That was reason enough for us to subject the EV6 to an extensive travel test. What qualities does the electric coupe offer as a tourer?
