The new Volkswagen Beetle will soon be unveiled in India much to the delight of fairer sex who have always adored this car. The New Beetle features surprisingly masculine (sort of) styling with wider and more hunkered down wheel arches as compared to the older car. The New Volkswagen Beetle is 84 mm wider, 12 mm lower and 152 mm longer than the last one, which has resulted in entirely new proportions. This gain in length and change in proportions means that the overall form of the new Beetle now represents the one seen on the original Beetles more than ever. The extended roof and raked front windscreen also means that the overall contours have changed, resulting in obvious similarities to the original Beetle. Expect the Beetle to be priced around the 30 Lakh mark and expect the Beetle to be available in both a Coupé and Cabriolet version.
Expected Launch: Mid 2014
Expected Price: Rs 25.00-30.00 Lakh
BMW’s foray into electric mobility has been publicized well over the last few months. With plans to make the first set of production cars out of carbonfiber making headlines too, the BMW i3 is packed full of technical wizardry and engineering innovations. The electric motor powering the BMW i3 will generate a staggering 172PS of peak power and 250NM of peak torque. As the i3 is powered by an electric motor, the power delivery will be instantaneously delivered through a single speed transmission to the rear wheels of the car. The electric motor sources its power from lithium-ion batteries located in the cars underfloor section. This also results in a low centre of gravity, which in turn means that the i3 is bound to be a great handler. The Lithium-ion batteries in the i3 will give the car a range of between 130-160 kilometers under general driving conditions when charged fully from a conventional domestic power socket or a BMW I Wallbox.
