自從推出 ID.3 與 ID.4 等車款,Volkswagen 集團在電動車領域已經直追 Tesla,根據原廠公布的新車計畫,從今年開始,每年至少推出一款電動車,同時也指出,目前當家車款包括 Golf、Tiguan、T-Roc、Passat 等車都會有下一代車型。

Volkswagen 表示,目前包括 Golf、Tiguan、T-Roc、Passat 等車,仍會推出下一代車型。

雖然 Volkswagen 未來重心會擺在電動化方面,但在實現全面 EV 陣容之前,仍需要依靠目前最成熟的燃油技術,而品牌首席執行長 Ralf Brandstatter 表示,Golf、Tiguan、T-Roc、Passat 等車,依舊會推出下一代車型,不會被 ID 車系取代。

Golf、Tiguan、T-Roc、Passat 等車大改款,將採用最新的 PHEV 動力。

針對下一代 Golf、Tiguan、T-Roc、Passat 等車型,將進一步提升燃油動力的效率,同時上述這些車款仍會維持全球戰略車的地位,並搭載最新的 PHEV 插電式混合動力技術,預期可以實現超過 100 公里的純電續航里程,性能上也不用擔心。

Volkswagen 指出,從今年開始,每一年都會推出至少一款電動新車。

至於未來品牌重點的電動車,Ralf Brandstatter 則宣布,從今年開始,每一年都會有至少一款電動車推出,目前已知的就包括七人座電動休旅 ID.6、跨界設定的 ID.5 以及 MPV 車款 ID.BUZZ 等,另外還會有定位在 ID.3 之下的 ID.1 入門小車。

另外 Volkswagen 最看重的新車則是基於下一代 MEB 電動車平台打造的旗艦車款,內部代號為 Trinity,將具備 L2 等級以上的駕駛輔助系統,並具備 L4 等級的平台與軟體架構,原廠希望藉由這款車,進一步逼近全自動駕駛的領域。

I don’t think I’m the only one who winces when he sees a collectible car destroyed in the movies. But fortunately, in most cases, the destruction is as fake as almost everything else happening onscreen.

At this point, the knowledge that movie shoots have multiple cars for multiple uses is not at all new. But the intricacies of how car stunts work are a little less clear. Thanks to Craig Lieberman, who worked on the Fast and Furious franchise, we get some insights into how movies can actually be good for classic cars.

The owner of the legendary Supra and the Skyline from the series explains the hierarchy of movie cars. Yes, movie studios do use actual classic cars in many cases, also known as “hero cars.”

Think of a hero car like the star. It’s too expensive and precious to go blowing up, so it has a stunt team. The good thing about a stunt car is that it only has to be good-looking from afar. If it looks like the hero car from 20 feet away, it’ll pass as that car onscreen.

Take, for instance, the orange M5 from Fast Five: most of the cars used for filming were just 530is dressed up to look like an M5. Now, you may be saying that a manual E39 or a fake Yenko Camaro (like the one from 2 Fast 2 Furious) are still worth something, and you’d be right. That’s why they don’t just get junked.

Movie studios are smart and in a lot of cases, even cars that have been used in stunts find a new home. The studio couldn’t afford to destroy a good Charger in the original movie, so it cobbled the stunt car together from parts it found in a junkyard.

After the stunt, it got sold at auction and got restored. Others end up in movie museums and in private collections. It might not be a perfect system and some cars, which are deemed less valuable, do get destroyed but, as Lieberman points out, car wranglers are usually car guys. That means they don’t want to see valuable or interesting cars destroyed either.

And that’s before you even start talking about modern VFX work that is entirely computer-generated. All of which is how the FF franchise can afford to “destroy” more than 1,400 cars onscreen, according to a 2020 Screenrant article.

So next time you see a special car crashed, burned, or in some other way destroyed onscreen, you can wince a little less, because chances are there’s some movie magic going on behind the scenes.

France is a country better known for its hot hatches than its sports cars. It did give us Alpine, though, and Bugatti, right at the far end of the scale. And for a while in the 1990s, there was this: the Venturi Atlantique.

The Venturi name might be familiar if you follow the Formula E electric racing series, or have a card-counter’s memory for early 1990s F1 machinery. But in the 1980s and 1990s it also built a series of mid-engined sports cars that looked a cross between a Ferrari 355 and a Lotus Esprit.

Like the Lotus, it featured a fibreglass body and an engine placed behind the two seats. In the original Venturi that engine was the same 2.5-litre turbocharged Renault V6 used in its Alpine A610 rival, though the rear-engined Alpine had the powertrain flipped 180 degrees.

The car pictured here and offered for sale at £39,995 ($55,500) is a later Venturi Atlantique 300 built in 1998. The Atlantique was unveiled at the 1994 Paris Motor Show, updating Venturi’s sports car with softer 1990s curves that still look good today, though the interior design is definitely stuck in a pre-millennium time warp.

In addition to the new bodywork, the Atlantique also got more under-bonnet firepower in the shape of a 3.0-liter 24v Renault V6. Naturally aspirated cars made 210 bhp, but if you wanted the performance to match the looks, you had to step up to the 281 bhp Turbo, which was allegedly good for zero-60mph in 5.5 seconds and a 174 mph top speed.

And since this one has only done 37,000 miles there’s a good chance it could still get close to those figures today. Most of the cars built came with the steering wheel on the left. But this is a rare right-hand drive version sold new in the UK only a couple of years before Venturi went belly up.

In 2000 the company was bought by millionaire businessman Gildo Pallanca Pastor and switched its focus to electric motors. The weird two-seat Venturi Fetish EV of the early 2000s even predated Tesla’s original roadster. But now it, like the Atlantique, is a largely forgotten, which is a shame.

Who else would like to see an Alpine-style rise from the dead for this French Ferrari?
