Renault has published the first image of the new Austral crossover, which will replace the Renault Kadjar on the market.
“Elegant and technologically advanced” is how Gilles Vidal, Design Director at Renault, describes the latest C-segment SUV. The design team aimed to create a truly modern and interesting car.
The designers relied on fundamental features – proportions, aspect ratio, overhangs, wheel size – and focused on giving the lines a more powerful look. The result is a crossover with a unique design and character. Renault Austral has excellent proportions that create a feeling of strength and agility.
Renault Austral combines stylistic elements that give it a dynamic and elegant design. We reduced the gaps between the body parts, improved the joints, so that there was an immediate feeling of quality.
The technological features of the all-new Austral are evident in the headlights and taillights. The two large C-shaped taillights blend in spectacularly with the car’s logo. The design of the front with expressive headlights and grille elements has similar features. Such optics was first used in the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric: the headlight housing is made of organic glass, on the surface of which patterns are applied. When the LED lights are lit, the engraved lines begin to shimmer, forming a vivid, vibrant pattern.
As previously reported, Austral will be based on the upgraded CMF-CD3 platform from Qashqai of the third generation. The car will only be available in hybrid versions. The basic version will receive a 1.3 TCe turbo engine with a 12-volt starter-generator. There will also be a version with a 1.2 TCe engine and a 48-volt starter-alternator. The top version will be a full hybrid E-Tech with 200 hp.
The car will be fully presented next spring and will go on sale in the summer. In 2023, a seven-seater version of the Renault Austral will be released, with a coupe-crossover coming a year later.
In addition, photos and details about the Renault Kwid 2022 car, which is Renault’s most affordable crossover, have appeared on the Web.
Tank 300 and Ford Bronco competitor. Brutal crossover Chery Jetour T-1 filmed on public roads
Chery has launched its brutal Jetour T-1 crossover on public roads in China, which will compete with the Tank 300 and Ford Bronco. Despite the fact that the car was filmed in camouflage, we are talking about the serial version, since mass production has already begun.
The angular design of the Jetour T-1 is clearly visible even through camouflage. The car will hit the market in two versions: a 5-seater with a length of 4.8 m and a 7-seater with a length of 4.95 m. At the rear, the crossover will be similar to the Land Rover Defender – the spare wheel will be mounted on the trunk lid.
Inside there will be a flat panel similar to the Mercedes-Benz G-class with a virtual instrument cluster and a large screen placed in the center of the front panel.
Jetour T-1 will be offered with several engines of 1.6 and 2.0 liters. Moreover, there will also be a plug-in hybrid option with a power reserve of about 1000 km.
Hydrogen hybrid CR-V. Honda to begin production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the US in 2024
Honda has officially announced that it will begin manufacturing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in the US in 2024.
The first model will be a plug-in hybrid based on the current generation CR-V. In theory, you’ll get an electric car for your daily commute, as well as the ability to drive long distances with zero emissions.
More details about the hydrogen-powered CR-V will be revealed closer to the vehicle’s 2024 launch. The existing CR-V is available as a conventional gasoline-powered hybrid.
The new model is part of Honda’s larger strategy to phase out combustion engine vehicles by 2040, using a mix of clean electric and fuel cell vehicles.
Aside from the hydrogen-powered CR-V, Americans can also look forward to the all-electric Prologue SUV in 2024. The brand already sells the Honda E subcompact electric car, but not in the US. Honda aims to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Skoda has announced the release of three brand new all-electric models by 2026.
Skoda has reaffirmed its environmental commitment by announcing plans to launch three all-new all-electric models by 2026.
In addition to three brand new electric vehicles coming out over the next four years, the company will also add new models in the coming years, and most of them will be electric. By 2030, the share of electric vehicles in the brand’s European sales will grow to more than 70%, according to Skoda. This means that the company will continue to release new or updated models with internal combustion engines.
Skoda also wants to achieve the greatest possible reduction in CO2 emissions in its production cycle. The company’s Indian plants will become CO2-neutral in 2025, and one of its Czech plants (in Vrchlabí) has already achieved this goal at the end of 2020. Two other Skoda plants in the Czech Republic are to become CO2-neutral by 2030.
Recycling is also an important part of the company’s strategy. In the case of the Octavia, a third of the materials used to make a car today are recycled. These are steel, aluminum, glass, plastic and even insulating materials.
Skoda recently announced the release of the 750,000th Skoda Kodiaq crossover.
