which almost almost sounds too good to be true. the plug in hybrid combines a $184.00 scour 3 cylinder gasoline engine with a 60 challenge electric motor and front wheel drive hybrid drive trains always add weight to a car thanks to the 2 engines and the battery and at 1900 kilos the x e 40 is no exception. if christ has but you can feel the weight now the exit 40 has never been a review of speeding all the stuff you definitely penfield the punishment stop exhilarating but with around 7.3 seconds from 0 to 100 the. combination when you when you're racing. but speed was never the point of this

fall though what do you say mean for this fuel economy. the hybrid system the diff length driving modes names hybrids and power in pure you'll get all electric driving meaning the car is on he was in be electric engine it's good post moved up to 125 k.m.'s h. and the rain off did you know which is quite nice when you'll both be driving the city. when the batteries i mean teeny your friend plug it in then charge it up or you miss the important combustion engine to give the battery some additional juice in the hybrid the system tries to combine both engines in the most effective way it's probably the most you would drive the most in when you're outside the 30 year old we're going to do with most of the time and then there's the performance vault where both engines are running in parallel all the time to give you the maximum performance for where. never you feel the need for. the science the 3

driving modes the x e 40 offers a whole range of safety systems. has always been at the forefront of driver safety . engineer kneels bullen invented the 3 point seat belts for the car maker back in 1959 the german patent office named the belts one of the 8 inventions that most benefited humankind during 100 years ending in 1905. with head side a neat airbags evolve x e 40 scored top marks in the euro n.c.a.a. p. crash test. emergency brake assist and active lane keeping assist come standard. class cross traffic alert warns you of vehicles approaching from the side and braking support automatically applies the brakes in order to avoid a collision. but there's one problem i've got with all these safety systems and that's not the systems themselves they work pretty much flawlessly it's
1:43 am
the way you control them because the way or the activate the systems you have to do is follow through the and for payment stream they are menus on top of menus that open up even more menus and i don't know maybe it's just personal preference and after a week or so of driving the car you will eventually master the system but personally i don't really like. ok so the user interface of the infotainment system might need an overhaul but what about fuel consumption. sleeping in the countryside probably isn't the best territory to achieve when sometimes that are close to be 2.5 lucas or 100 kilometers. i'm not saying it was impossible to achieve those numbers by driving here well. they most of the

time in the hybrid vault we ended up with something close to. 100 kilometers so what's the verdict at a hefty starting price of $49000.00 euros the x e 40 with its new plug in hybrid engine has both the advantages and disadvantages he might expect on longer trips this heavy s.u.v. tends to guzzle the gas but for running errands around town or commuting to work the sleek looking volvo will get you there economically and safely. and. our cities are failing us. does affect us all is this all future generations can look forward to oh i have a city where i don't need to worry about the machines and parking what do we do to improve the way we move in our cities but it's very smartly join us on

a journey where architects engineers and activists face up to the challenges of our future urban mobility. traffic chaos some of the toughest stuff. worldwide every day. there are some 47000000 cars on germany's roads enough for 2 of the 3 adults to be driving at the same time. that's the highest level ever in berlin alone 87000 new cars were registered in 2019 despite growing traffic problems. like lots of public transport with ok bicycle. and we see all the cars next to the universe the building where people like the students basically have free public transport and they come by car and i think that's not good. all over the world.
1:46 am
traffic pollution is choking use of the air we need to brief. people around the world are demanding change. now after more than 100 years is the cars dominance of our ever more crowded cities finally coming to an end. of vitamin this occupied the scurrilous and nobody has freedom to live in the city in a way and the future of the city is the future of our morbidity in a new way. the global design studio graft is developing visions of our future urban mobility. its founders last cricket bag and thomas villa mind are specialists in urban planning and sustainable architecture they expect future generations to have far more choice in how they move around their cities will be the child all of us. will probably walk quite. some distance because
1:47 am
the neighborhoods will be without too much traffic jump on a shared car maybe that leads then to a connection that probably will take their child into the air and landed right on working place. flying taxis could be a spectacular urban upgrade but probably not for the masses the biggest changes will affect cars especially our own private ones of which there are more than $1000000000.00 worldwide. there will be no baldry anymore between public transportation and individual traffic of the separation of both cities that we see true there. but what could take the place of private cars in the nation's free highly flexible public transport system. our early. when mobility could depend on vehicles like the move or the tech
1:48 am
underpinning the mover comes from a german company. it's meant to demonstrate how one platform can fulfill many needs . for us to move or could be used for the transport of people as well as. modifications for the transport of goods during daylight traffic the transport of people and during the transport of goods. in germany car sit unused for 23 hours a day on average each wasting about 12 square meters in parking space. that's as big as the typical german child's bedroom. in the u.s. cities like houston are struggling to overcome decades of urban planning that has given more space to cars than anything else. the we have reduced the dimensions of the vehicle of course we achieve that by moving the drive units into the wheels themselves placing the technical components as far into the corners as possible to
1:49 am
make more interior space years a ball. and that frees up space on the road so. shrinking vehicle footprints are just one part of shufflers mobility vision. this award winning prototype can carry 4 people to their destination cleanly autonomous li and flexibly in. the city were aggressively change as we share. it is public or private leaving the possibility for the city to come back to the people who need less parking spots. we basically need the cars or the planes or the drones whatever it is too long so we need new spaces. change transportation. in the near future digital now. working will drive our mobility. shufflers idea for people
1:50 am
using autonomous vehicles from the fleet working 247. these multi-functional emissions free vehicles to transport people and goods or provide services by sharing the vehicles people could free up huge areas of space previously dedicated to parking but are we really ready to have robots driving everywhere. and again schools are good it is the one major hurdle is legal vehicles like that are not really covered by the current legislation we'll have to make many adjustments to legal frameworks and the lack of legal security surrounding autonomous vehicles is putting the brakes on development that's going to go it's done too little confusing but can we really afford to lose any more time. to generations of young people who will inherit our cities are already looking for quick and direct ways of improving our urban lives now we're going to do 2 things firstly politically challenge all
1:51 am
politicians like we want to have a city where we want to live in where we don't just see cars and parking lots everywhere but where we can go everywhere and i'm not afraid that a collar hit us secondly we can do it ourself we can take the bicycle to work to university to school with them by. the metro for the on the ground and we can take . the german city of al spork is trying to get cars out of the city by offering free public transport in the central zone. since january 2020 people can also take out a mobility subscription that gives them unlimited access to the city's fleet of bikes and cars the package costs around 3 years 50 per day. it's one change among many that are needed. we need an overall traffic management as well as the infrastructure as a. payment system
1:52 am
a ticket system and things like this because of course future mobility has to be affordable it might pay for itself with and it's like the internet does these days . just imagine that's driving all mobility is actually clean and full free why because it's the search place where you can work with driving as you know it's automatic you don't have to take care of that it's shared with other people it's connected so basically the people that run at the tysons in these to places while you're working they pay for the right so i think a city where we don't have cars. has much more space for our troops. has space for all the people and i think a city with all costs can have a lot more opportunities than one of the with calls. a city without cars for many people that's hard to imagine. but things are beginning to move in that direction the question is what do we want to do with the space when the cars have gone.
1:53 am
we just are strong traffic. and then you see these could be i'm a texan driving a car for the last 27 years. i have not been easy i've been driving very high i have 4 children 3 boys and one girl past my waist and it was better. tell me about this are something right now about it want to go back for the long run. you got to move me from trying to go to our blog good bye rough. rough ride.
