Renault test the new Megane-Nissan boast Leaf success rates- New colours for the Peugeot 208
The 208 has been one of the best selling vehicles offered by French manufacturer Peugeot for a number of years now and the firm are now looking to bring even more interest to the revised model by offering the car in a new paint work design which will carry two separate colour textures. Both satin and matt paint finishes will also be offered across the revised 208 range. The company have confirmed that these new colour schemes will consist of both Silver and Grey which have been confirmed with the names of 'Ice Silver' and 'Ice Grey'. One of the big features announced by Peugeot is that these new colour schemes are difficult to scratch and to damage which will serve the car well. The newly updated designed model has been confirmed to go on sale from this coming June.
Renault have been seen testing the new Megane
Renault will launch their brand new Megane addition onto the market from early on into next year and already the new vehicle has been spotted out and about testing on public roads. The brand new model has been seen carrying a new design structure which makes the vehicle look and feel more aero dynamic than past additions to the range and the brand are hoping that these new techniques will help to bring in more sales for the French firm. Renault are playing their cards close to their chest with the new model as they are yet to reveal the engine range that will come along with the next generation of Megane. However we can expect to find some new technology features inside of the vehicle which will consist of new touchscreen technology which is expected to be offered as a seven inch touchscreen for entry level models but if you do decide to go for the higher level trim options,the size of the screen will increase by two inches. Little more is known about the next generation of Megane but we are expecting to hear more on the car with a grand debut in Germany later this year.
Nissan boast Leaf battery successful
The Nissan Leaf is without a doubt one of the biggest success stories that the Nissan brand have to their name. It is one of the biggest selling electric vehicles on the market in this generation and it is one of the most reliable vehicles on the road. In fact, this is something that the Japanese brand have been boasting about this week as the company revealed their success rates for their batteries inside of the cars. The firm have reported that the Leaf battery has a success rate of 99.99 percent by stating that out of around 35,000 units of the car being sold, only three batteries have failed in these particular models. This is indeed a telling statistic that will help to bring even more success in the way of the firm especially as the company are rumoured to be developing a new version of the car set to launch in the future.
