Volkswagen turbocharged Up!-New charging station for BMW i8 and i3 models-Renault's new SUV
In the not too distant future,French auto maker Renault will replace their Koleos model here in the United Kingdom and across other areas around the world too. The new model to replace the vehicle will come in the form of an all new SUV and is expected to contend with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai aswell as many other front runners in the segment. The vehicle is yet to receive a name from Renault but recent images have revealed how the interior of the car is going to look. One of the biggest pieces of information we have taken from the screenshot was that Renault have now included a dual zone climate control system in the vehicle.
The centre console in the car is placed lower to the ground than the majority of Renault models and chrome trimming surrounds the gearstick and controls with a touch screen also to be found. New of specifications is being kept very quiet by the company at the moment but as soon as more is revealed on the Koleos replacement, we will have it covered.
BMW new charging stations for i3 and i8
BMW have revealed a new piece of technology for their current i3 and i8 models which involves the charging systems used for both vehicles. The company have revealed a new solar powered charging set up which covers the area much in a similar way to a garage and will allow the motors to charge back their electric power whilst parked underneath it. BMW have named the system, Home Charging Services. BMW have told fans all around the world that the new setup for charging will be available to purchase from next year although a price tag has not been given as of yet. If you happen to be over at the CES event this week though, the full charging system is there and on display to show you just how well it works.
Turbocharged Volkswagen UP!
Recent news coming out is revealing that Volkswagen could be all set to launch a brand new turbocharged version of their Volkswagen Up model to customers overseas which would presumably affect us right here in the United Kingdom aswell. A concept version of the car named the GT Up was shown in Frankfurt Germany back in 2011 and an area of around 100 brake horse power is believed to be produced by the turbocharged version.
The Up offers one of the best value for money vehicles in the city car segment and has proven to be a popular choice ever since it first went on sale in 2011. The VW group has not officially confirmed the arrival of a new turbocharged model as of yet but the belief is that they are about to sometime soon.
