    Visitors to the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre in centre:mk can take stock of the new all-electric Audi e-tron SUV


    • Audi e-tron makes its first UK public appearance from October 19th to 21st
    • Front of house position in Electric Vehicle Experience Centre in centre:mk shopping hub in Milton Keynes
    • Available in the UK from early 2019 with RRP of Ł70,805
    • Sub-six-second 0-62mph acceleration, driving range of at least 248 miles*
    • Fast charging (at points with 150kW output) to 80% capacity in as little as 30 minutes


    With the fully electric e-tron, Audi has something completely new in store for devotees of Vorsprung durch Technik, and the Buckinghamshire new town of Milton Keynes is to provide a highly appropriate shopfront from which the new SUV can make its inaugural UK public appearance. Famed above all for its plentiful roundabouts and abundant shopping opportunities, the town can lay claim not only to being the UK home of Audi, but also one of four key locations chosen by the UK Government to spearhead vehicle emissions reduction initiatives as part of its Go Ultra Low Cities programme.

    The versatile new five-seat e-tron eschews conventional fossil fuel combustion in favour of two powerful, zero emission electric motors delivering sub-six-second 0-62mph acceleration and a driving range of at least 248 miles*. It is a fitting Go Ultra Low standard bearer, and accordingly will briefly take pride of place in the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre funded by the Government’s Ł9 million investment in the scheme and located in Crown Walk in the town’s famous ...

    Potent 300PS version of compact class SUV to be unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show


    • New S model with output of 300PS; 0 to 62mph in 4.8 seconds
    • Available to order in the UK in late 2018, first deliveries early 2019
    • Striking exterior design, S-specific interior accents
    • Body lowered 20 millimetres, 18 and 19-inch wheels

    Striking design meets driving exhilaration: Audi is presenting the SQ2 for the first time during the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The new top model in the Q2 family is a titan in the compact SUV segment, with a 300PS output channelled through S sports suspension and quattro all-wheel-drive which enables zero to 62mph acceleration in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. The Audi SQ2 is also at the forefront in the class where infotainment and assistance systems are concerned.
    0 – 62mph in 4.8 seconds: the engine

    The heart of any Audi S model is the engine, and the 2.0 TFSI in the SQ2 is in peak condition. Developed by Audi engineers and built in Győr, it delivers 300PS and a constant 400 Nm (295.0 lb-ft) of torque between 2,000 and 5,200 rpm. As a result it can dispatch the sprint from 0 to 62mph in 4.8 seconds, and power on to a governed 155mph top speed.

    The four-cylinder, 1,984 cc unit responds instantly up to the redline at 6,500 rpm. In the dynamic mode offered by the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, it responds even more directly, with brief double de-clutching accompanying the gear changes by the S tronic and a particularly sonorous engine note. The engine weighs only around 150 kilograms, benefiting not only the all-up weight of the Audi SQ2, but also the axle load distribution.

    Numerous high-tech features hone the profile of the powerful four-cylinder. The intake and exhaust camshafts are adjustable to optimise fill and gas exchange. On the exhaust side, the Audi valvelift system (AVS) adjusts ...

    SEAT’s new flagship model


    • Tarraco is SEAT’s third SUV and represents the company’s entry into the large SUV market, completing the family line-up alongside Arona and Ateca
    • The Tarraco is the first model to show the new SEAT design direction for the coming years
    • The large SUV offers greater flexibility for customers with both five and seven-seater options
    • The new model will enter the market at the very beginning of 2019


    The future design direction of new SEAT models has been unveiled tonight as the wraps have come off the all-new Tarraco. The large SUV – named after the Mediterranean city of Tarragona, a historic cultural centre with a spirit that is young and adventurous – completes the Barcelona-based manufacturer’s SUV range.

    The latest vehicle designed and developed at the facilities of SEAT in Martorell (Barcelona) and produced in Wolfsburg (Germany), marks the third instalment in the company’s SUV product offensive and shows a glimpse of the future design language of new SEAT models. Tarraco is the new flagship model of the brand and will bring the company new customers, boost brand image and have an important effect on profits, as this is a model with high contribution margins.

    Tarraco sits at the top of SEAT’s SUV family, as the bigger brother to both the Ateca and Arona, and mixes state-of-the-art technology, dynamic and agile handling, practicality and functionality with elegant, progressive design. The Tarraco combines the many advantages of its larger dimensions to offer a vehicle that can take on all elements of modern life.

    The new SUV blends the key attributes of every vehicle in the SEAT range – design and functionality, sportiness and comfort, accessibility and quality, technology and emotion –but in a form that suits a wider variety ...

    Curtains up for the Divo1. Today, at the exclusive automotive event “The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering“ in Monterey, California, Bugatti has presented its latest model as a world premiere.

    Testament that with LEGO Technic you can build for real, this non-glued, fully-functional and self-propelled LEGO Technic model can fit two passengers inside and accelerate to over 20km/h

    Perfectly recreating the organic design lines of the world’s fastest production car – the iconic Bugatti Chiron1 – the LEGO Technic life-size model pushes the boundaries of what LEGO builders imagined was possible to build in LEGO elements.

    The model is the first large scale movable construction developed using over 1,000,000 LEGO Technic elements and powered exclusively using motors from the LEGO Power Function platform. Packed with 2,304 motors and 4,032 LEGO Technic gear wheels, the engine of this 1.5 tonnes car is generating 5.3 horse power and an estimated torque of 92 Nm.

    Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at the LEGO Group said:

    “This life-size model is a first of its kind in so many ways and with it, we wanted to push the boundaries of our own imagination. For over 40 years, LEGO Technic has allowed fans of all ages to test their creativity with a building system that challenges them to go beyond just creating new designs, to also engineering new functions. Our Technic designers and the engineers from the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic, the place which also builds the impressive models for LEGO Stores and LEGOLAND parks, have done an amazing job both at recreating the Chiron’s iconic shapes and making it possible to drive this model. It’s a fascinating example of the LEGO Technic building system in action and its potential for creative reinvention.” ...

    Porsche has unveiled the new Macan in Shanghai. The compact SUV has been a great success since its launch in 2014, and the latest model brings further enhancements in terms of its design, comfort, connectivity and driving dynamics, allowing the Macan to remain the sporty flagship in its segment.

    The new Macan stays true to the Porsche design DNA with a distinctive three-dimensional LED light strip across its tail. LED technology also features in the headlights as standard. The most striking innovations inside the vehicle include the 11-inch touchscreen of the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM), re-designed and re-positioned air vents and the GT sports steering wheel familiar from the 911. The PCM enables access to new digital functions, such as intelligent voice control and the online navigation system. The vehicle’s range of comfort equipment has also been expanded to include traffic jam assist, an ioniser to control interior air quality and a heated windscreen.

    LED headlights and new rear light strip as standard
    The introduction of a number of exterior styling features are intended to bring a more purposeful appearance look to the Macan, as well as incorporating more contemporary design elements. For instance, numerous details reflect the DNA of the iconic 911 sports car as well as the 918 Spyder. In particular, the lighting plays a key role, with the new Macan equipped with LED headlight technology as standard. The light units have a distinctive, three-dimensional design and can be further optimised if desired, such as with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS) that can adaptively ...
