Ferrari SF90 Stradale hybrid with1000hp is the strongest Ferrari car ever made! This is the all-new Ferrari SF90 Stradale! It’s a 1000hp hypercar that comes powered by Ferrari’s award-winning twin-turbo V8 drive-train as well as THREE electric motors! It’ll hit 0 - 60mph in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 212mph.
Ferrari introduces a new chapter in its history with the introduction of its first series production PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle). The new model is extreme on every level and represents a true paradigm shift, because it delivers unprecedented performance for a production car. Figures such as 1,000 cv, and a weight-to-power ratio of 1.57 kg/cv, and 390 kg of downforce at 250 km/h not only put the SF90 Stradale at the top of its segment, but also mean that a V8 is the top-of-the-range model for the first time in the marque’s history.
The SF90 Stradale has a 90° V8 turbo engine capable of delivering 780 cv, the highest power output of any 8-cylinder in Ferrari history. The remaining 220 cv is delivered by three electric motors, one at the rear, known as the MGUK (Motor Generator Unit, Kinetic) due to its derivation from the Formula 1 application, located between the engine and the new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission on the rear axle, and two on the front axle. This sophisticated system does not, however, make for a more complicated driving experience. Quite the opposite, in fact: the driver simply has to select one of the four power unit modes, and then just concentrate on driving. The sophisticated control logic takes care of the rest, managing the flow of power between the V8, the electric motors and the batteries.
The SF90 Stradale is also the first Ferrari sports car to be equipped with 4WD, a step necessary to allow the incredible power unleashed by the hybrid powertrain to be fully exploited, ensuring the car has become the new benchmark for standing starts: 0-100km/h in 2.5 sec and 0-200km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
So a truly remarkable supercar with electric hybrid power for a new generation! Here is am introduction video from carwow youtube channel by Mat Watson.
The new 2020 BMW X1 is not a re-design, but "just" a small face-lift and talking about face-lift, the new BMW X1 got a new FACE or FACIA with enormous new front grill that will make any other car jealous. Some people like this new design language from BMW and some really can't handle it. But we think it looks AWESOME. Much more aggressive and sporty than before. The front of any car, SUV or truck is really important and is what you see first. The first impressions are always important! And this huge front grill really does says "hello, i'm important and strong" and that fits really well with this compact luxury SUV in the premium segment. There are also other small new tweaks of this already good looking crossover. The new BMW X1 is competing with the new Audi Q3 and one thing that is a little weird, why does this new X1 not have a new digital display cluster like Audi's virtual cockpit? A little strange when you think about that all other BMW models got these new digital instrument clusters. However it still has a great interior design with premium quality. Here are some of the details from the BMW press release.
"The new BMW X1 exudes a more dominant, imposing aura at the front end, in particular. Here, a larger BMW grille – the kidneys now merging in the center – links up with new Adaptive LED headlights including sharper light iconography and a bumper with integrated LED fog-lamps and larger air intakes. The rear end of the X1 also houses new stylistic features. For example, the new inlay in the body-color rear apron adopts the car’s main body color. This new feature is included as standard and lends the rear end of the BMW X1 an even stronger sense of inherent class and coherence."
Under the hood the engine program is the same. (fuel consumption combined: 6.8 – 4.1 l/100 km [41.5 – 68.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 155 – 107 g/km*).
NEW Peugeot E-Legend Future Electric Vehicle: First public driving and close-up demonstration with futuristic features never seen in a car before. By Supercar Blondie (youtube channel) In Italy. This fully electric super high -tech advanced Peugeot Super Car is able to drive with no driver! It has the ability to switch between autonomous driving and normal drive mode. This is just a concept....so far... but we guess that many of the high-tech features will be seen in future Peugeot EVs.
Here is the very interesting video with all the information and exciting details.
The ALL NEW BMW 1 Series has been revealed by BMW!
One of the best selling BMW's has received a major face-lift (mostly on the inside) and is ready for it's third generation of driving pleasure and sporty dynamics. BMW has improved the NEW 1 Series in all areas and it will be interesting to see how this will compete with the all new Mercedes Benz A class and CLA and the new upcoming Audi A3. From the new pictures from BMW it looks sharper and more dynamic and less boring than the previous generation. It's not a completely redesign, but they have tweaked areas that will just make it more youthful and fresh. We think it looks great and smart. This is what the press release from BMW says:
"Sporty, cool, safe and classy, sprinkled with fresh design and the latest in connectivity, the new BMW 1 Series is a proper BMW with a strong character all its own. Cutting-edge chassis systems and innovative technologies, plus the integration of all key driving dynamics components and control systems, imbue the BMW 1 Series with an increase in agility that drivers of cars with both the new front-wheel-drive configuration and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive will clearly recognize. "
So it's more high-tech with all the new safety features which is no surprise. But the biggest change will be the on the interior rather on the exterior and why change a design to much on a car the sell really well? The interior has change a lot and it now more spacious for all passengers and that is an improvement. BMW is saying this:
"The third-generation model offers significantly more space than its predecessor with little change to its exterior footprint, thanks to the cutting-edge BMW front-wheel-drive architecture. Passengers in the rear are the main beneficiaries, while a larger load compartment also results. Available as a five-door model only, the all-new BMW 1 Series is five millimetres shorter than its predecessor at 4,319 millimetres. In terms of width (now 1,799 millimetres), it has grown by 34 millimetres while its height (1,434 mm) has increased by 13 millimetres. At 2,670 millimetres, the wheelbase is 20 millimetres shorter than that of the second-generation model."
Changes on the exterior:
The new face of the BMW 1 Series and its fresh interpretation of iconic BMW features can be seen clearly from the front. The signature BMW kidney grille is now larger, with far greater presence. For the first time in this model range, the two kidneys now merge in the middle. The headlights are now angled in design and lend the car a fresh and youthful feel. There will also be optional full-LED lights available.
BMW is saying this about the profile and rear design:
"The flanks of the all-new BMW 1 Series stand out first and foremost with the familiar – and clearly defined – BMW shark nose, a strong hint of wedge shape and a slim window graphic culminating in the C-pillar with traditional Hofmeister kink. A small number of crisp and precise lines and boldly sculpted surfaces lend the new 1 Series an athletic appearance. The defining elements of the rear end are its broad-set lower section and the tapering effect further up. This creates a striking shoulderline, which gives the car a planted stance on the road. The wide, two-section rear lights enhance this impression and have a very modern look with their slender form and pared-back appearance. The optional full-LED rear lights provide a whole new take on the familiar “L” design courtesy of a single, slim light element with a striking sweep to the side. Expressively shaped surfaces and eye-catching tailpipes with a diameter of 90 millimetres (or 100 mm for the angle-cut items on the BMW M135i xDrive) set the seal on the sporting appearance of the rear section. The BMW 1 Series is available with an array of new light-alloy wheels starting from 16 inches in diameter. 19-inch items are available as an option for the first time."
And also for the first time comes the electric panoramic roof! "
"Available for the first time on the BMW 1 Series lets more light into the interior, where more room and an enhanced feeling of spaciousness meet high-quality materials and innovative details. These include backlit trim strips, making their debut in a BMW as an option. They come in three different designs with six switchable colours and create compelling translucent effects. Grouped control clusters for the heating & climate functions and the various driving functions provide ease of use, while functional stowage options – such as the area in front of the gearshift lever, which can be specified with the Wireless Charging option for smartphones – deliver additional comfort and convenience."
Petrol and Diesel Power Engines:
"Customers can order their new BMW 1 Series with a choice of three- and four-cylinder engines from the latest-generation BMW EfficientDynamics family. A host of detail improvements give them better fuel economy, lower emissions and, in some cases, more power than before. "

So as you can read improvements of all areas of this All New BMW 1 Series and we predict this will sell even more than before. It is already good priced and will attract many new costumers.
BMW has sold more than 1.3 million examples of the BMW 1 Series in its two first generations and especially in Europe is has sold a lot.
Mazda 3 Premium Performance Engine Coming 2020:
New 2020 Mazda 3 SkyActiv-X High Powered Engine With Mild Hybrid Ready To Order but only in Japan at this point! This new stronger engine will be 25% more expensive that previous Mazda 3 top trim model and then we are rally getting close to premium car prices! This new four cylinder mild hybrid engine will be stronger than the 2.0-liter SkyActiv-G. Also fuel economy will be improved with the mild-hybrid engine train. But technical detail are still to be revealed. But we know that the SkyActiv-X is expected to bring a major fuel economy improvement of up to 30 percent compared to the G version while delivering 10 to 20 percent more torque. So that already looks very promising for those who wants a strong engine with good fuel economy. It will be very interesting how this is to drive, because the regular Mazda 3 already drives really well, but off course with more power it will become a competitor to VW Golf GTI and SEAT Leon, Honda Civic etc. This new engine will become the top of the range and most expensive Mazda 3 ever sold! The Europe-spec version of the engine is expected to produce 178 horsepower and when available tin the U.S.A most likely the same output. There are no prices yet but expect it to be higher than any other Mazda 3.

FIVE STAR SAFETY RATINGS:
And to add to the story of the new Mazda 3. It has just received a five star EURO NCAP safety crash rating . The All-New 2019 Mazda3 has been awarded the maximum five-star rating by Euro NCAP in its latest series of tests. The All-New Mazda3 performed impressively in all four Euro NCAP test categories -Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User (pedestrian safety) and Safety Assist. This may be attributed to three key factors: the adoption of the very latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture, which features a high-rigidity, impact-absorbing yet lightweight bodyshell; an even wider range of advanced i-Activsense safety technologies to help drivers identify potential risks and reduce the likelihood of damage or injury; and enhanced pedestrian protection performance.
TEST DRIVE REVIEW
Here is a new Test Drive Review With the all new Mazda 3 by Euroman Driver: (this is a highly impressive hatch-back and sedan in many areas. Both the luxurious interior and the sporty design and the way it drives even with base engine models and automatic transmission it is very impressive and many other car manufactures has to step up if they want to keep up with Mazda.

All New Skoda Superb Plug-in Hybrid With Video, Pictures and Price. The Skoda Superb has always been a handsome good looking sedan and station wagon and is basically as Volkswagen Passat and Audi A6 or A4 under the hood! They share the same parts but the Skoda Superb has a little lower price tag, not much but it is there and in my opinion it looks better than the VW Passat. The Skoda Superb is great value for money and in the same price range as Mazda 6 and Ford Mondeo. I have test driven the Skoda Superb with 252 hp and it drives really well, but also the smaller engine 1.5 TSI with automatic transmission DSG7 is very good. But now back to the news about the new Skoda Superb plug-in hybrid. I predict this will be a huge bestseller from Skoda. In the days where SUVs and tiny overpriced crossovers are selling like hot cakes this new awesome looking Superb comes with a plug-in hybrid drivetrain and that will attract new costumers who wants a big practical luxurious sedan with much more space than some compact crossovers and small SUV's. The ŠKODA SUPERB iV features a 1.4 TSI turbocharged internal combustion engine connected, via a clutch, to a synchronous electric motor. This will lower the fuel consumption and fuel economy which will lower the year road taxes in most European countries. It takes approximately three and a half hours to charge a flat battery from a 3.6 kW wallbox, and an hour and a half longer using an ordinary 230 V power socket. The Superb iV will go on sale early next year, and while pricing is still to be announced, it’s only likely to be available with high level equipment trims and. But it will be lover than the VW Passat plug-in hybrid.
Live Stream: New 2020 Skoda Superb and all-electric ŠKODA CITIGO. Today is the global world premiere of the all new Skoda Superb and first fully electric Skoda car. Skoda makes better and better looking cars. My favorite is the Skoda Kodiaq but also the Skoda Superb is a great looking car and not only great looks but also dynamic and sporty to drive. I would as far to say that both the Skoda Kodiaq and Superb has a premium feel about them. But off course they also borrow the best techs from the Volkswagen Group (VW, Audi, Porsche, SEAT, Lamborghini etc). The livestream starts at 15:30 CET and you can watch it below here where there will be a 45 minutes presentation. UPDATE: The live-streaming has finished but you can watch the free youtube car "movie" production online at the global premiere presentation below here.
The Skoda Superb will also come with a mild hybrid drive-train while the Citigo will be fully electrical. This will mark a new time for Skoda and Skoda will be introducing many more electric car in the futures.
Audi Q5 E Quattro Plug-In-Hybrid SUV 2020 Review and Price
The car manufacturing world is getting more and more electrified these years and luxury sport brands like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche are developing new and smarter "green vehicles" with fully electric drive-trains and plug-in hybrid drive trains. And now it is time for the Audi Q5 premium SUV to get some greener engine in the shape of a plug-in-hybrid drivetrain. And why not!? In many countries a regular TFSI 3.0 engine is very expensive because of the high C02 emission, but with a plug-in hybrid is should be lower and cheaper to drive, both when it comes to emission taxes and daily fuel consumption. So here are some numbers to consider when cheking out this Compact SUV.
The new plug-in hybrid setup enables the Audi Q5 to offer a combined output of 362 hp (270 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm). The electrified engine will enable it to sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in only 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph (239 kph), and that is not bad at all, given the vehicle’s size, weight and the relatively small four-cylinder engine. (small if you like V6 or V8 engines, but honestly not for regular driving....)
And here we properly have to most important information regarding this new Audi Q5 PHEV and that is how cheap will it be to drive? Audi promises the new Q5 55 TFSI E Quattro can return as much as 112 miles per gallon or consume as low as 2.1 liters / 100 km in the combined cycle. That can be translated to CO2 emissions of only 46 g/km when used as a plug-in hybrid, while in fully electric mode it can travel for more than 26 miles (40 kilometers) based on the new WLTP cycle (EU). If you switch off the combustion petrol TFSI engine it will top out at 84 mph (135 kph). That zero-emissions range is guaranteed by a lithium-ion battery pack with a 14.1-kWh capacity stored underneath the trunk’s floor. It takes only two and a half hours to fully charge the batteries through a 400 V/16 outlet while from a household socket it needs approximately six hours. A Convenient recharging is also possible on the road. The proprietary Audi e-tron Charging Service provides access to some 100,000 charging points in Europe.
So this is definitely a car that will appeal to many people who can't afford an Audi e-tron but still want's a low fuel driving premium car. This will sell really well in Europe and China where the road taxes for driving cars with big engines and high C02 emission are just getting higher and higher, while if you have a car with low or zero emission you will get rewarded. This SUV will reward you! This Audi Q5 plug-in-hybrid will come with a DSG7 clutch (seven-speed S tronic gearbox and AWD. If you are in Europe you can order it already and the price starts at around 60.000 euros.
