New Toyota Tundra

The first Toyota Tundra was launched relatively back in 1995. This version, which by its appearance personified unconventionality, has greatly contributed to the popularity of fullsize trucks. Customers of the traditional pickup segment for the first time were given the opportunity to combine the performance of a passenger vehicle with the ability to embark on a world of off-road driving.

It’s worth knowing that in Toyota thought  about vehicle what will become Tundra back in 1988. The concept car appeared at the Tokyo Salon three years later, and the first production model in Geneva in 1993. The first generation had the primary task to be a fun car, both by design and features, and the Tundra was described by the syntagm of “civilized excitement”.

A complete redesign was carried out in 2000, in order to attract Tundra and customers who were looking for something more sophisticated. The second generation, visually captured phenomena, has confirmed Toyota’s ambitious intentions. At the end of 2001, the house introduced the D-4D diesel engine to the European market, which significantly improved sales, which, having counted both versions, globally reached 150000 copies. In 2007, Tundra held as much as 21% of the European pickup market, and in 2009 this percentage dropped to 21%. There was a time for change.

The vehicle stability control together with the electric power steering assist with the steering mechanism. For most vehicles, different stability controls (ABS, towing controls, power steering) operate independently of each other; At Tundra, these functions are integrated, and together with the active torque control, “assembled” in the IADS.

Both diesel engines are delivered with a new six-speed manual transmission.
The price of the latest model will be in the basic version of about $ 31,000.

Renault ZOE RS is a realistic option?

This little electric car is not the most exciting in the world, but there is something else interesting about it. Namely, when it was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, this car, which had no emission of harmful gases, had two electric motors that together produced 460 horsepower and an incredible 640 Nm of torque.

As it turned out, the Renault Sport Department is considering to make this model with even better performance that would carry the RS designation. According to the head of that department, Patris Rati, they are thinking about this model because of the development in battery technology and it will be necessary to do a lot of analysis before the plan is put into operation.

If it gets a green light, this little one will have to suffer some changes in the chassis and batteries, compared to the concept. If the performance is as good as the concept of the car, it will be a real little electric beast.
