VW Group chief exec Herbert Diess believes that tech giants pose more of a challenge for the automaker going forward than its traditional rivals.

Last week, Diess mapped out a plan that will see Volkswagen’s massive Wolfsburg plant taking on Tesla’s Berlin Gigafactory, with the latter bound to draw in engineers, workers and ultimately customers right on the German carmaker’s home turf.

More recently though, according to Bloomberg, VW’s boss took to Linkedin in order to address the topic of tech giants entering the car industry. When asked about reports of Apple developing a car, he said: “We look forward to new competitors who will certainly accelerate the change in our industry and bring in new skills. The unbelievable valuation and the practically unlimited access to resources instill a lot of respect in us.”

“I’ve said it before – the most valuable company in the world will again be a mobility company. It could be Tesla, Apple or Volkswagen,” he added.

After receiving a fresh vote of confidence from the automaker’s supervisory board this month, Diess is free to focus on expanding the VW Group’s EV lineup with new models such as the ID.4 crossover, Audi e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo.

As for Apple, a recent report claims that its Project Titan vehicle is back on track, with a possible launch window scheduled for 2024. According to Reuters, the car’s battery could feature a monocell design which “bulks up the individual cells in the battery and frees up space inside the battery pack”.


就在近日、由美國IIHS(Insurance Institute for Highway Safety)高速公路安全保險協會,所公布的最新受測車輛撞擊資訊中,全新大改款的21年式Toyota Sienna,受惠於全新TNGA模組化底盤平台、設計優異的車身潰縮結構,再搭配相關主被動安全配備的相輔相成,一舉獲得最高等級的Top Safety Pick+榮耀加持!

其實改款之前的Sienna,雖然也擁有不錯的整體表現,但卻在極為嚴苛的兩項Small overlap front crash tests前方小面積偏位撞擊測試(駕駛座與副手座)中,受到撞擊擠壓後的乘員空間偏小,難免未能符合最高要求標準。但相對於全新大改款的21年式車型來說,先前堪稱為嚴苛關卡的該兩項測試(駕駛座與副手座的Small overlap front crash tests前方小面積偏位撞擊測試),卻都已經憑藉足夠的乘員空間而順利通過,且榮獲最高標準的Good良好評價!

相較先前車型的頭燈照明表現(包含鹵素與HID)僅有Acceptable的普通等級,全新21年式車型的LED反射式與LED投射式頭燈,則全都獲得Good良好評價!

至於在前方撞擊預防系統方面,全新21年式Sienna則是分別獲得Front crash prevention: vehicle-to-vehicle(車對車的前方撞擊預防)項目的Superior(優良),與Front crash prevention: vehicle-to-pedestrian(車對行人的前方撞擊預防)項目的Advanced(先進)綜合評價!

簡單來說,21年式全新Sienna僅有在時速37MPH(大約時速59.5km/h)進行Front crash prevention: vehicle-to-pedestrian(車對行人的前方撞擊預防)測試時,TSS(Toyota Safety Sense)2.0系統並未能完全減速/煞停至IIHS所要求的完美標準而已。而21年式大改款Toyota Sienna,也是今(2020)年繼21年式Honda Odyssey之後,第2款獲得IIHS最高安全評價(Top Safety Pick+)的Minivan級距車款。

德國豪華品牌《BMW》正緊鑼密鼓進行測試中的《BMW X8》在兩個多月前才首度被神通廣大的海外狗仔們給捕追到身影,同時也間接證實了這部盛傳多時的旗艦SUV新作確實存在。在2020年即將結束之際,日前海外狗仔又再度於德國慕尼黑道路上更近距離捕捉到進行測試中的《BMW X8》身影

雖然先前外界在想像《BMW X8》可能樣貌時多半推測新車可能將以Coupe SUV身形瞄準《Audi Q8》、《Lamborghini Urus》為主要競週對手。不過隨著更多《BMW X8》間諜影像被捕獲,比起自家《BMW X4》、《BMW X6》等Coupe SUV定位產品《BMW X8》似乎更像是《BMW X2》的放大版本。

從此次更近距離被捕捉到的《BMW X8》身影也可以發現,新車不僅將有著讓人難以忽視的碩大水箱護罩,在前、後葉子板等處也都比起既有《BMW X7》更加具有肌肉線條,此外測試車輛所採用的Pirelli P Zero車胎配置似乎也暗示了《BMW X8》可能的不凡身手。

雖然先前曾傳出《BMW X8》可能比照《BMW X7》提供三排座椅設定,但是根據目前所掌握的資訊新車或許將採用四座與五座設定營造更為舒適、餘裕的乘坐體驗。另一方面,從測試車輛上的Hybrid字樣貼紙推測其可能為X8 M45e車型,若一切順利《BMW X8》未來在2021下半年登場後更讓性能車迷們期待身懷750匹最大馬力的《BMW X8 M》或許也有機會於2022年跟上腳步與大家見面。
