On November 6th, global e-scooter leader Yadea showcased its new G5 e-scooter in Milan, at EICMA, the world’s largest international motorcycle trade fair. The G5, a new-generation intelligent lithium battery lightweight e-scooter and quality-focused vehicle equipped with the latest in cutting edge technology, shared the spotlight at the exhibition with new models from Harley and Ducati.

A global leader in e-scooters and a sponsor of the 2018 FIFA Russia World Cup, Yadea has launched several high-end intelligent lithium-ion e-scooters that have become standard bearers in the market, backed by proprietary technologies and designs that are in full compliance with internationally-recognized standards. Yadea has become integrated into the world’s top-quality supply chains and made sure that only the best that today’s technology can offer is applied to every part and detail to create a world-leading product mix of e-scooters.

With the G5, Yadea went for an entirely new design concept that allowed for the leveraging of the latest in terms of smart technologies and performance optimization. The vehicle is equipped with the firm’s proprietary GTR3.0 high-performance electric motor, a new-generation Panasonic high-energy power lithium battery and battery management system backed by Panasonic-certified battery PACKtechnology that prevents deterioration of the battery module, extends service life, and assures stable delivery of output power. The battery can be recharged 800 times before needing to be replaced, and each full charge provides the G5 with a range of up to 120km.

Other features include the same motorcycle hydraulic damping system found in top-of-the-line international brand motorcycles, a high-quality cold-rolled structural steel frame, ultra-quiet double-pump opposed piston type disc brakes, and, for the first time in any Yadea vehicle, the same run-flat tires installed on cars.

Disruptive innovation defines the vehicle’s intelligent hardware and software: a 7″ ultra-thin (14mm) thin-film-transistor (TFT) full color liquid crystal display (LCD) instrument panel. An intelligent app that can be downloaded onto any smartphone allows the rider to remotely check the condition of the vehicle, look up the vehicle’s specifications, undertake troubleshooting in case of malfunction or to locate the vehicle if lost. The e-scooter has keyless access with touch button start along with an array of other intelligent controls.

As the largest e-scooter maker in China, Yadea was invited to participate in EICMA, an international, market-oriented, professional trade fair where the latest advances in vehicles technologies, materials and processes will be on display to the world, opening a new channel where fans of every kind of two-wheeled vehicle can learn about and appreciate what China has to offer. The event is also an opportunity to showcase China’s leadership in high-end manufacturing.

In China’s e-scooter industry, Yadea has always played the role of innovation leader. Each of the maker’s product and technology releases established new quality standards. The G5 was no different, most notably in the uniqueness of the design. All indications point to this new-generation intelligent Li-Ion battery lightweight e-scooter to be a model of epoch-making significance, setting a new standard for the e-scooter segment of the EV sector.

Yadea is recognized in China as the leading brand when it comes to e-scooters. In 2018, the firm’s extensive lineup of e-scooters are sold in 77 countries, including the US and Germany, with annual global sales exceeding 4 million units, accounting for 11.7 per cent of the world total. There is good likelihood that Yadea will collaborate with global leading industrial design teams to take the level of creativity in product design and quality to a new level. At the same time, in a move to stake a strong market position in global markets, flagship showrooms are planned in New York and other cities around the world. Yadea, already the established leading brand within the industry in its domestic market, not only gives the sector a new opportunity to further grow and enlarge its footprint, but also an opportunity for the e-scooter maker to leverage the event as a showcase for where China’s high-end manufacturing is today, and what can be expected of it in the future.

All-New 2020 Toyota Corolla Ready To Rock The Sedan World

Published

on

The Corolla sedan’s bold new look is a perfect reflection of the bumper-to-bumper, wheels-to-roof transformation that has taken place.
Reading Time: 3 minutes

With more than 46 million Toyota Corollas sold globally since its introduction in 1966, it would be difficult to find a driver who did not recognize the name. Everyone, it seems, has a Corolla story. Many, though are going to be doing double takes when they see the re-imagined and reconfigured 2020 Toyota Corolla sedan. And that’s exactly the point.

The 12th-generation Toyota Corolla made its arrival in two chapters: the all-new Corolla hatchback arrived earlier this year, and now comes the current best-selling Corolla body style, the sedan. Both are based on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), which is far more than a new body structure, bringing together new approaches to engineering, design, assembly, and materials.

TNGA transforms both Corolla styles into drivers’ delights while also bolstering the model’s renowned value and reliability. Both draw from the same DNA and share powertrains. It’s no surprise, then, that the 2020 Corolla sedan dramatically elevates this model’s focus on comfort and refinement while also infusing it with the Corolla hatchback’s feisty personality.

The Corolla sedan’s bold new look is a perfect reflection of the bumper-to-bumper, wheels-to-roof transformation that has taken place. The TNGA platform means an available engine that produces more power than its predecessor yet delivers better fuel efficiency. TNGA imbues the Corolla sedan with greater agility, yet also with its smoothest, quietest ride. TNGA also means an elevated feeling of quality in every surface, switch and control the driver sees and touches. And, critically, TNGA delivers on Toyota’s commitment to driver and passenger safety with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite of active safety systems – standard on every Corolla sedan model.

Design Transformation

Toyota shook up the midsize sedan ranks with the new-generation Camry, and now the compact sedan segment is in for a jolt with the 2020 Corolla sedan. From every angle, the new Corolla sedan looks lower and leaner, tauter and tighter. Powerful fender flares and generously curved fender top surfaces accent its sculpted, athletic core.

The bold front fascia details vary by model grade, with the SE and XSE putting on the sportiest face, including a body-color chin spoiler and aero stabilizing fins to emphasize the wide stance. The slim, J-shaped Bi-Beam LED headlamps wrap deeply into the front fenders and give the Corolla sedan a steely stare and a distinct nighttime signature. The sporty SE and XSE grades use triple J-shaped clearance lamps with LED light guides along with LED turn signals, creating a unique design signature.

The rear leaves a distinct lighting impression as well, with narrow combination lamps that wrap deeply into the fenders. All 2020 Corolla sedan models use LEDs, the type and style varying by model grade. The sporty grades feature smoked outer light lenses.

Cabin Fever

Simple. Warm. Inviting. Sensuous. These descriptors, seemingly from the luxury car realm, inspired designers’ efforts when visualizing Corolla sedan’s cabin. The result is called “sensuous minimalism.” It’s equal parts sporty and elegant, and, as always, Corolla-comfortable and durable.

A neat instrument panel lends an open, harmonious feeling thanks to its slimmer upper surface, with character lines that interlock with the door trim to convey an airy atmosphere. At the center of the instrument panel, within easy view for the driver and front passenger, sits a high-resolution 8-inch multimedia touchscreen for the standard Entune 3.0 multimedia system on all grades except the L grade, which gets a 7-inch multimedia touchscreen.

The center stack screen provides access to vehicle settings, audio controls, navigation, and Entune 3.0 apps. Climate controls, located below the multimedia portal, are fashioned in a bright, highly visible digitized configuration. The center stack flows into a wider console, with an armrest that’s nearly 0.8-in. longer than in the previous model, for greater comfort.

Dynamic Force is with You

The 2020 Corolla sedan L, LE, and XLE grades will use the 1.8-liter engine (2ZR-FAE) found in the previous generation, yet with more horsepower and better fuel efficiency. The XSE and SE grades are powered by a completely-new 2.0-liter Dynamic-Force direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine (M20A-FKS). This new engine delivers more performance and using less fuel. Remarkably, the new Corolla sedan engine is physically smaller and lighter, helping to lower the car’s center of gravity and improve its overall balance.

The 2020 Corolla will be available at dealerships Spring 2019.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class made a dramatic Canadian debut at Toronto’s REBEL nightclub on November 14. The unique launch event took guests on an exhilarating journey that recreated a day spent behind the wheel of an A-Class, and was inspired by the cutting-edge infotainment system that is making its debut in the model: Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX).

The theme for the event was “Hey Mercedes, Set the Mood” – a nod to the A-Class’s highly customizable features and ability to help the driver make the most of every moment of the day. Over the course of the evening, guests experienced four distinct moods – Up & At It, City Hustle, Escape the City, and Night Drive – each of which delivered a fully immersive sensory experience complete with sights, sounds, and a menu that was carefully crafted to match the ambiance.

The transition between each mood was scripted to mimic an interaction between MBUX and a driver, which underscored the theme’s connection to the new infotainment system as well as the A-Class. “Hey Mercedes” is the verbal prompt to activate voice control for the advanced, voice-activated MBUX infotainment system. Each transition was cued up with a voice saying “Hey Mercedes, Set the Mood,” which prompted every screen in the venue to update, immediately transforming the entire look and feel of the venue for the more than 2,000 guests in attendance. The impactful use of REBEL’s digital screens was another effect that was designed to mimic the A-Class, whose interior features a digital cockpit that spans the entire width of the vehicle without visual interruption.

Prior to the dramatic reveal of the A-Class, a five metre tall 3D screen displayed oversized dynamic visuals, surrounding party-goers with images that helped to create the right ambiance to suit each mood. Between the third and fourth moods, the screen disappeared in a dramatic Kabuki drop, revealing the vehicle everyone had come to see: the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

“The A-Class redefines luxury in the compact class with a mix of beautiful design, a luxurious and spacious interior, and MBUX – our completely new, cutting-edge infotainment system,” says Brian D. Fulton, President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Canada. “We have become accustomed to constant connectivity and personalized experiences. In the A-Class we’re bringing those capabilities to personal mobility. With this exciting entry in the compact class, we hope to welcome a new generation of Canadian drivers to the Mercedes-Benz family.”
