Today at the annual press conference Volkswagen Group has made a number of important statements. The starting point can be considered the phrase head of the group Herbert Diess: “In our opinion, in the next few decades, alternatives to electric mobility will not.” If so, over the next 10 years instead of 50 new models of electric cars the company will produce nearly 70. The total number of electrified vehicles it was decided to increase from 15 million to 22 million

The group includes more than a dozen brands, and to us the most interesting Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Cupra, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Skoda, Volkswagen. Almost for each of them, electrification would result in a substantial loss of jobs (30%). “That’s the reality,” acknowledged the Diss.

Of course, the group sees its mission not only to spread electric vehicles. A network of charging stations Ionity with the active participation of the VW Group in 2020 will consist of 400 points along the main roads of Europe. Platform MEB is now considered as a commodity that is sold to other manufacturers. The group is considering the possibility of their participation in the production of batteries in Europe, although LG Chem, SKI, CATL and Samsung remain the strategic supplier of batteries.

Developed a comprehensive program for the protection of the environment and the main measures aimed at neutralizing the emission of CO2: they must be reduced to zero in 2050. Accordingly, a reduction of 50% in 2025 compared to 2010 seems feasible. “Last year was very successful for the Volkswagen Group. We played very well, despite the strong headwind. Brands our group worked very hard to help achieve this result. Now we must redouble our efforts to accelerate the pace and determined to continue the transformation,” concluded Herbert Diss.

The wheelbase is likely to be similar to the hatch — 2650 mm, but total length will exceed 4310 mm, and the trunk will be more 395 L.

The first official photos of the model Kia Xceed will be shown in the summer, and the premiere will take place on the tenth of September at Motorshow in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the SUV with bumpers that did not appear in the body color, rides on the roads of South Korea without any masking. And now there is no doubt that Xceed got your own body, not recycled “shell” hatchback Ceed.

The designers have tried to distance themselves from Xceed Sid. Headlight cutout — new, long lights, too. Another grille in the front bumper the horizontal ties. Silver paste instead of the rear window looks strange. Forked release is not the same as the Sid GT.

While none of the representatives sadovskoy family, including Cerato, no all-wheel drive. Deprived of it, and a new Soul, and Stonic. But Xceed is theoretically able to break the vicious circle if, for example, comes closer to the model of Hyundai Kona or “Rob” the elder brother of the Sportage. In addition, the approach of a new global compactthat will not only front-wheel drive.
