    • The SEAT eScooter concept will be presented at the Barcelona Smart City Expo World Congress on 19th November
    • SEAT will sell its own electric motorcycle equivalent to a 125cc model
    • It will be available to both private customers and sharing services


    SEAT is strengthening its commitment to urban mobility and breaking into the motorcycle market with the presentation of the SEAT eScooter concept.

    The company will sell its own fully electric, 125cc-equivalent motorcycle, with the official presentation taking place at the Barcelona Smart City Expo World Congress on 19th November.

    The new SEAT eScooter concept forms part of the company’s urban mobility strategy, which focuses on offering sustainable solutions for cities.

    SEAT announced it would spearhead the Volkswagen Group’s micromobility strategy at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. This strategy also includes the SEAT Minimó concept car as well as the SEAT eXS Kickscooter powered by Segway which was presented at the 2018 Smart City Expo.

    SEAT President Luca de Meo stated that “the constant growth of large cities makes achieving efficient mobility one of the main challenges to overcome. Today we are taking a further step in our urban micromobility strategy by confirming the launch of the first eScooter in the history of the brand.”

    Barcelona has the most motorcycles per capita in Europe and has a long-standing affinity with two-wheeled vehicles. For this reason, SEAT will develop this concept in collaboration with Barcelona-based electric motorcycle ...

    Updated rear-drive R8 model returns to the range as a permanent fixture alongside further enhanced R8 GT4 customer racing car


    • Sports car with rear-wheel drive becomes a permanent range fixture – expected to open for UK ordering in January 2020 with deliveries from March
    • Series production Coupé and Spyder RWD models and Coupé-based GT4 racing car feature new exterior design in line with the revised R8 quattro versions
    • 2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine with 540 PS, 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds


    The uniquely rear-driven Audi R8 Rear Wheel Series struck a chord with supercar traditionalists during its limited production run in 2018, and now the concept is to be permanently reinstated in the range with a new look and a new name. The Audi R8 V10 RWD features a 540PS version of the much loved naturally aspirated V10, and uses the latest generation R8 as its basis from a design and technology perspective. It combines all that model’s well documented attributes with rear-drive handling characteristics delivered by a mechanical rear differential and an intelligent stabilisation control system that allows controlled drifting for drivers who occasionally have a circuit to hand.

    Those who see a chequered flag on a rather more regular basis are also now catered for by the near-production-level Audi R8 LMS GT4, the customer sport racing car for the international GT4 category which also features rear-wheel drive and is being released at the same time with a new design and optimised vehicle dynamics.

    “We launched a limited series of the Audi R8 V10 RWS at the beginning of 2018,” says Oliver Hoffmann, Managing Director of Audi Sport GmbH. “Its rear-wheel drive derived from the R8-LMS racing car, ...

    • Zero emissions, maximum versatility: The SPACE VIZZION1 defines a totally new, fully electric car segment
    • Aerodynamic exterior design: Openings in front and roof section reduce Cd value and increase range up to 590 km (WLTP) or 300 miles (EPA)
    • Seventh member of the family: ID. SPACE VIZZION follows ID.1, ID. CROZZ1, ID. BUZZ1, ID. VIZZION1, ID. BUGGY1 and ID. ROOMZZ1


    Volkswagen will debut the ID. SPACE VIZZION to the world on the eve of the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19th
    2019 — a zero-emissions vehicle for a new era, new thinking and new mobility. The ID. SPACE VIZZION is a wagon of tomorrow that combines the aerodynamic characteristics of a Gran Turismo with the spaciousness of an SUV. Stylistically, the ID. SPACE VIZZION follows the design DNA of the ID. family, yet has a completely independent and progressive character.

    “So far, with our ID. family, we have shown what is possible with electric vehicles in each known car category. With the ID. SPACE VIZZION we create a new, fully electric segment,” says Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design.

    The ID. SPACE VIZZION is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB). The MEB fully exploits the technical possibilities of e-mobility and guarantees long ranges, dynamic driving performance and a whole new level of digital networking.

    When it comes to the design, the front and roof sections are particularly precise, with openings for the airstream for aerodynamically optimal design. Thanks to the efficiency of the drive system and ...

    • Digital offensive. Displays and controls are consistently digitalised so their functions are self-explanatory
    • Hybrid offensive. The new Golf1 will be the first Volkswagen to launch onto the market with five hybrid versions (eTSI and plug-in hybrid)
    • Safety offensive. The Golf is the first Volkswagen with Car2X communication fitted as standard


    The Golf is the most successful European car for more than four decades. A new chapter in the history of this best-seller begins today, 24 October 2019, with the world premiere of the eighth Golf – digitalised, connected, and intuitive to operate.
    Never before has a Golf been so progressive. With hybrid versions launched at the same time, it is electrifying the compact class. Its digital interior enables a new dimension of intuitive operation. Speeds of up to 210 km/h are possible with assisted driving. It is the first Volkswagen to use swarm intelligence from traffic via Car2X, meaning it can warn against hazards on an anticipatory basis. Its world premiere takes place in Wolfsburg, where the Golf was invented, and where it has been built and refined for the last 45 years. The new Golf will be available on the market in December.


    “Over the course of seven generations, the Golf has impressed more than 35 million customers. The entire automobile industry expects a new Golf to set the standard”, explained Dr. Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG. In terms of its technology, the Golf is making the greatest leap forward since its debut. Ralf Brandstätter, Chief Operating Officer of Volkswagen Passenger Cars: “This car is completely ...
