Its peak torque is 250 Nm (184 lb-ft), all of which is available instantly from a standstill, as is usual with electric motors. This means that stepping on the accelerator pedal immediately unleashes a thrilling burst of speed. The motor smoothly delivers the kind of performance that drivers expect from a BMW via a single-speed automatic transmission, with continuous power delivery that builds up the car’s tempo in a characteristically dynamic fashion. 0-100 km/h (62 mph) is achieved by the new BMW i3 in 7.3 seconds. Its top speed is limited to 150 km/h (93 mph).

The functionality of the standard charging cable supplied with the new BMW i3s has been optimised and includes a temperature sensor. Charging at home is extremely user-friendly thanks to the BMW i Wallbox which, in its most recent incarnation, can supply 11 kW of power to charge the high-voltage battery. This allows enough energy for an electric range of around 180 kilometres (112 miles) to be transferred in under three hours - five times quicker than with the standard charging cable. The new BMW i Wallbox Connect also extends the functionality of the globally unique Digital Charging Service to provide intelligent charging for optimal cost efficiency, and allows customers to make best use of self-generated solar energy. In addition, it is also possible to control the charging process using a smartphone app and manage usage by means of an access card. Drivers with a registered ChargeNow card have unrestricted access to the world’s largest network of public charging stations.

It also features SYNC Connect, which allows owners to connect with Explorer remotely using FordPass to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from almost anywhere - while also allowing access to important vehicle diagnostic information. This technology joins such existing features as enhanced active park assist, which uses ultrasonic sensors and electric power-assisted steering to help drivers with parallel and perpendicular parking; park-out assist, which helps drivers pull out of parallel parking spots; and intelligent all-wheel drive with Terrain Management System™, which enables improved driving capability by sending power where needed.
Caitlin Duncan Audi, 2017-10-13 20:03:47. As standard, the RS5 Coupe rides on 19-inch lightweight forged wheels with 265/35 tires. Upon request, 20-inch wheels in various designs are available, among which the new, especially lightweight fully milled wheel. It uses 275/30 tires. Behind the big wheels are powerful RS steel brakes with perforated composite disks. At the front axle, these have a diameter of 375 millimeters (14.8 in), while at the rear, they measure 330 millimeters (13.0 in). The six-piston brake calipers with RS logos are painted in black, or optionally in red. Upon request, Audi can also equip the front axle with high-performance ceramic brakes featuring six-piston brake calipers and perforated disks with a diameter of 400 millimeters (15.7 in).

"Our customers‘ ongoing overwhelmingly positive response to the dynamic design of today‘s Fiesta is a significant factor in why Fiesta is still leading its segment even after 7 years," said Joel Piaskowski, director, Design, Ford of Europe. "We evolved the design to make it more contemporary, yet not lose the ’Fiesta-ness’ that the customers love. The next generation Fiesta is refined, yet much more sculpted with an equally emotional appeal. Fiesta’s exterior is visually simpler, allowing us to create stronger personalities within the expanded line-up, each with distinct fascias, grilles and details that will appeal to a much broader range of customers."

A revised five-link construction is used on the front axle. At the rear, a five-link suspension replaces the trapezoidal-link suspension used on the previous model. This benefits the sporty driving characteristics and agility. It also improves comfort significantly. With the standard RS sport suspension, the new RS5 Coupe sits 7 millimeters (0.3 in) lower than the base model. Audi Sport offers the RS sport suspension plus with Dynamic Ride Control (DRC) as an alternative. It uses steel springs and three-stage adjustable dampers that are connected to one another via diagonal oil lines and a central valve. When cornering at speed, the valves regulate the oil flow in the shock absorber of the spring-deflected front wheel at the outside of the curve. They increase the support provided and reduce pitch and roll movements. They thus connect the vehicle more closely to the road and improve handling. A new damper generation with integrated control valve ensures much more noticeable spread between the individual modes of the Audi drive select system.
