68th International Motor Show Germany (Frankfurt Auto Show)


The landmark supercar of the 90’s returns in the form of Leviathan’s first hypercar. The new 2020 Nessus features a hybrid powertrain with a 738 hp 5.6L V10 along with 2 electric motors generating 202 hp each, bringing the total output to 1,142 hp (in game i’m using the turbos to get those figures). 8.9 seconds is all it takes for the Nessus to complete a quarter mile from a standstill. Top speed is in excess of 230 mph. This is the fastest Leviathan to ever hit the road.

The all-active suspension, dynamic AWD, power-boosting from the rear electric engine, stability control, and more are all connected systems to work as one to give a blistering track machine or a confidence inspiring smooth ride when you want it. The all carbon fiber chassis and body panels keep even the most optioned Nessus at 3,409 lbs.

250 examples will be made, each one unique from each other. Every inch of the body is sculpted for fluidity and performance, with a variety of material and paint schemes available. The roof is made of electrochromic glass, acting as a panoramic sunroof that at the push of a button drastically increases tint to block virtually all UV light, keep the interior cooler, and make it harder to see into the cabin from the outside. The interior is crafted from state of the art materials from leather seats to carbon fiber door inserts and brushed aluminum trim detail. The latest HUD technology is fitted with a flip up old school gauge cluster for a more classic feel. The 2020 Nessus is available for reserve today.

Knightwick motors presents the refreshed 2020 Urbanwise

The front has been restyled with more aggressive air intakes, led headlights with cornering lights built right into the unit. and a new deeper front grille.

the rear end has had new fully led tail lights and new rear bumper design

The new changes are best seen on the new for '20 T25s model which sits at the top of the Urbanwise family. Powered by a 2.5L inline 5 engine making 290bhp@6500rpm and 391NM@4600rpm, the power is sent to all four wheels through a modern 7 speed automatic with electronically controlled differentials with an eco, normal and sports modes.

The S can accelarate to 100km/h in 7.2s and on to a limited 250km/h top speed, active springs and dampers keep comfort levels to the high levels expected from a Knightwick

For the more eco minded motorist there is also the Urbanwise T20 with a turbocharged 2.0 inline 5

this has a 6 speed automatic driving the front wheels. The fuel economy is 6.1l/100km, the engine however still makes 150bhp so it is a strong performer while also saving fuel


Corsica Motor Company Press Event - 2020 CORSICA SUMMIT ELECTRIC SUV

Corsica has gone Electric.

The Summit is the first fully electric production model from Americas favorite performance brand.

Standing still or surging ahead, the 2020 Corsica Summit is expressive. The electric SUV is powered by two powerful electric motors that are completely CO2-neutral and virtually silent. A new generation of all-wheel drive ensures excellent traction and dynamics and a continuous and variable regulation of the ideal distribution of drive torques between the two axles – within a fraction of a second.

Style that Stands Out.

The Summit has been designed to look youthful and sporty, while maintaining the rugged look of an SUV. LED-lights are standard in both front and rear, with the distinctive LED strip running across the front of the car exemplifying the stylish nature of the car.

Every 2020 Corsica Summit is offered with an unique two-tone color layout, maximizing the levels of customization. 11 body colors and 4 additional roof colors are all available, to ensure every Corsica Summit on the road sticks out from the rest. 19" wheels come as standard, 20" and 21" wheels are available for extra.

Paving the way for the Future.

A key factor for the sporty character and outstanding driving dynamics is the low, central and thought out position at which the battery system is installed. The system gives the Summit a range which is suitable for driving long distances. During more than 85 percent of all decelerations, the Corsica Summit recovers energy solely by its electric motors. The electric SUV taps its maximum recuperation potential with the integrated advanced brake control system.

Underpinning the Summit is the all-new SHEP Platform. Co-developed between Sisten and Hokuto, SHEP will be the basis for every electric Sisten, Taluvec and Corsica to come from the Sisten Motoring Company. The platform has been developed to be highly flexible and reliable, with the first two models paving the way for the future being the Corsica Summit and Hokuto Satori.

Electrifying Performance.

Powering the Summit SUV is a 90 kWh battery system, supplying the EV with over 200 kW of power and allowing a real world range of 450 km (280 mi). By using a 150 kW DC fast-charger, the Summit will be able to achieve 80% battery charge in just 30 minutes.

With the Altrive all-wheel drive system feeding two electric motors, 0-100km/h is achieved in just 6.3 seconds with the top speed being electronically limited to 210 km/h.

Quality comes Standard.

The interior of the Corsica Summit features a beautiful, leather-finished and aluminium plated design, with no corners cut when it comes to refinement. The FADE V™ navigation screen takes center stage in the center console, allowing it to be controlled via the touchscreen or integrated control wheel with shortcut buttons. Heated seats with 10-way adjustment, a Wi-Fi hotspot and adaptive cruise assist come as standard.

The Corsica Summit E 90 starts at $48,500, equipped with the high-end media center and numerous driver assist systems. The Summit is being built in the CO2-neutral plant in Nevada and will be arriving in European dealerships in November 2019. Asian and Americans will receive the SUV starting in Winter 2019.

Oxford Motors in the 68th International Motor Show Germany

The S-Series has been Oxford’s star prizefighter in the luxury sports crowd since the 60s. However when technology evolves and changes, Oxford decides to stay behind and do what they can with what already has been available.

2020 Oxford S-Series (Fifth Generation, OST5)

With the end of the fourth generation S-Series, the grand tourer underwent a considerably strong transformation for the fifth generation.

S370 shown in Highlands Green.

Tipping the original balance of sophistication and aggression now more towards the aggressive side, the S-Series takes a more serious-looking demeanor, courtesy of Son Dae-Ho, one of the head designers responsible for the design of the Hornet Ventuno.

A select variety of engines will be available, but the range-topping engine under the hood is Oxford’s Neo V8; a 6.1L (370 ci) naturally aspirated DOHC V8 boasting a hearty 605 HP and 505 lb-ft of torque, mated to Oxford’s ShiftPlus 8-Speed automatic transmission, to ensure a harmony of smooth power delivery and smooth driving is achieved within the traditional front-engine, rear wheel drive layout.

Inside the S-Series lies rich handmade leather adorned all throughout the body, from the 2+2 configured seats, to the door inserts, all available in numerous configurable combinations. If one liked, alacantara was available as well.

Numerous comfort options are standard with the S-Series, such as heated and cooled seats, triple-zone climate control, and a Burmester 13-speaker audio system. Optional equipment include active door sound dampening, night vision, and the Extreme Exhaust Sound Regulator (EESR).

Despite being created for extreme driving comfort, the S-Series has not lost it’s fighting spirit, and Oxford has made sure that this grand tourer has not lost it’s track. It’s precise dynamics and smooth cornering allows for the S-Series to be more agile than it’s weight would assume.

Gracious style and wonderful performance, what more is needed from an Oxford Motors car?


Welcome to LORIER’s stand for the International Motor Show this year in Frankfurt!

As we told it, we present you the new Jayena’s facelift for 2019!
We’ll have 3 possible motorizations, the V6 our partner the Corsica Motor Company in 3 declensions, modified in our workshops. 380hp, 400hp, for the regular models, and a 420hp for the Jayena Sport 420 special version we have here!

LORIER Jayena 380

LORIER Jayena Sport 420

The Jayena Sport 420 is a radical version of the model. We wanted to fully put our philosophy in the Jayena, that’s a good car as a GT for sure, but some of our customers buy LORIER for his track oriented car philosophy, that’s why the Sport 420 is here, with a special suspension kit, a big wing, and front lip, bigger brakes, and some elements in carbon.
With all these modifications, the Sport 420 is capable of 0-100km/h in 3.70sec, and 310km/h top speed, but you know LORIER cars are about corner speed and agility and not top speed on a straight line, even on the GT segment.

And now, we promised it, a surprise!
We worked since 1 year on a concept without any communication about it, and now it’s time!
It ended up to make it a common base with Corsica Motor Company, we really hope this concept will end up in a commercialized car.

Do you remember this car? It’s the pure essence of the very begining of our proud historical company, the the S-01 and the Flash!
This concept is called the Flash-01 Concept, and we assure you the final model will have this spirit inside.
We doesn’t communicate more about engine specs. All you know we share our aluminium chassis and the engine with Corsica Motor Company.
Come to Tokyo Motor Show in October at our stands not to miss it!

Good bye and thanks for your interest for our stand, we hope we see you in October!


One of the Cars at the Holts Booth

(If i knew how to make the text in the middle i would use it) (Has Holts did something to the automation community?)

This one is a late one, saying late because it wasent shown in teasers or anything, and it just got here.
What you are looking at now is the new Holts GTS-Series. This is the highest trim you can get. Its more of a sporty GT Car. This one you are looking at is the first Holts to come with a Flat Plane V8 Engine. Sounding like a super car when its not.

This one comes with a 5.0L Flatplane V8 that puts out 485HP Max. More will upset Holts HS530 and HS600 owners. There are 3 trims and engines ranging from a 4 cyl to a v8.

This being the GTS-480, it is connected to a 7-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifts and ride. Being a GT car, it can do 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and almost reach 200. The GTS-480 is light weighing at 2900+. Car is RWD using 295s in the rear and 245s in the front.

The GTS-Series is a more of a everyday car. Using the same body as the Previous Hyper car but can store more and be more of an everyday car. Engine Sits lower For more rear Cargo room (but the game says 0L cargo room). The markets classify it as a super car at 126 points but was intended to be a GT car. Chassis Made out of carbon fibre helping it weigh less and returns a good 19MPG More sporty luxurious Interior, Alcentara Roof Accents, around the steering wheel and in other spots. Little hints of Carbon Fibre exposed in the S not much because this is not supposed to be a supercar. Audio wise, comes with ResonatePro Audio that is 3 speakers in the front, 2 on each door and 4 In the rear also 4 on the roof to give you the best audio quality possible. Make you feel at a concert.

GTS 480 In Bumblebee yellow

Holts Motor Company (2021 Holts Trova)


A Bright Future.

Hokuto and Corsica are proud to announce their partnership once more with a new electric crossover SUV.

This is Satori.

The 2020 Hokuto Satori is Hokuto’s first fully electric vehicle, and it’s here to make a statement. Underpinning the Satori is the all-new SHEP Platform. Co-developed between Sisten and Hokuto, SHEP will be the basis for every electric Hokuto vehicle or Sisten vehicle.

Rain, Sleet or Snow.

…the Satori has you covered. Naturally, the EV is all-wheel-drive. And being electric motors, you can manage power as you will between them. Using a high-tech traction control, stability program, and ABS, each wheel can be slowed, pushed harder, or whatever you need for optimum traction.

What powers it? Well, under the hood, there is… a storage compartment. The Satori is powered by two 90 kWh batteries, which supplies the EV with 220kw of power (nearly 300 equivalent horsepowers) and will net you an impressive 280 mile range in the real world. To refuel, use a 150 kW DC charger, and you’ll be back to 80% from nothing in just a half an hour. 0-100km/h is achieved in just 6.3 seconds with the top speed being electronically limited to 210 km/h.

Express yourself.

in a way that will turn heads everywhere. The Satori has a precense like no other. Plastic body cladding follows the latest trends and contours the front, side and rear of the vehicle to give it a rugged appearence. The angular body lines and angry-eyed headlights accent the front, as does a functional hood scoop to aid climate controls and cool the batteries.

The rear light assembly highlights the width of the car for a rear view like no other. It accentuates the width of the car and has a futuristic shape on each end to integrate more with the D pillar of the vehicle for a unique silhouette.

Lead the crowd.

The i90 is the only trim level available at the moment, and it comes with a 10.1 inch vertical media display and backup camera. The display has all capabilities such as Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and all that comes with it. You experience the interior rather than just sit in it, as it’s lined with mostly leather and some high-quality cloth, with aluminum or light matte wood trim.

The future is within your grasp.

The Hokuto Satori i90 starts at $49,590, equipped with the high-end media center and numerous driver assist systems. The Satori is being built alongside the Summit at the CO2-neutral plant in Nevada and will be arriving in European dealerships in November 2019. Asian and Americans will receive the SUV starting in Winter 2019.

Nice. This and the Corsica Summit looks beautiful enough to make me want to rebadge this as an Ursula or a Hessenburg for some reason.


@BannedByAndroid agreed. I would want to use the same platform too or make something in its class than a head to head!


(The lights come on, revealing Nakano Nori stepping up onto the stage with her english translator in tow. A pair of cars can be seen as silhouettes, lit from behind, in the background)
(-note- I’m just putting the translated English, because having both Japanese and English script is too much effort)

“Good afternoon everyone! Who’s ready to see what Abran has in store for you?”

-cheering and applause-

“Good, good. Well, in case you couldn’t tell, we’ve got two all new high performance cars to talk about; so let’s get started!”

-some light applause-

(A light comes on behind Nori and her translator, revealing a stark black sporty coupe. The projector at the back of the stage comes on to reveal pictures of the car)

“First up is the new 5th generation Abran Sport, aptly named the Sport ‘5’ in commemoration of Abran’s 50th anniversary, and the announcement of the original Abran Sport 2-6 at the 1970 Frankfurt Auto Show!”

-very loud applause and cheering-

“The Sport 5 comes equipped with a 2.1L straight five motor that makes 238 horsepower!
-moment of pause-
But of course, it also has a 6 speed manual transmission and rear wheel drive, a state of the art interior, and aggressive, sporty styling.”

-some moderately loud applause-

“The Sport 5 is the embodiment of the mindset that went into creating the Sport 2-6, and has the same spirit and energy as the 50 year old Sport 2-6; and every last detail just adds to the experience. Every aspect is expertly designed to give the very best driving experience possible.”

“The Sport 5 will be available in 3 different trim levels. The S, S+, and SL. The S trim is the base model, featuring a standard interior layout. The S+ trim features a HUD, and the SL model features a more premium HUD and Lunaro Sports bucket seats.”

“With the S trim starting at just twenty-five thousand Euros, the Sport 5 is affordable for sports cars enthusiasts.
-moment of pause-
But for those who desire something, more, we have something completely new.”

(Nori spreads her right arm towards the still dark portion of the stage and a light comes on, revealing the car. The screen changes to pictures of the other car)

-stunned silence from the audience-

“This is the all new Hyper Sport! A brand new model to celebrate our 50th anniversary!”

-thunderous applause and cheering-

-after noise settles down- "The Hyper Sport is powered by a turbocharged inline five cylinder engine making over 550 horsepower! This is our first turbocharged engine, ever. And the Hyper Sport is the perfect car for it. The Hyper Sport only comes in one trim; but has all wheel drive, a seven speed sequential transmission, and a premium, racing oriented interior. The Hyper Sport is the pinnacle of Abran performance, and is exceptionally fast on the track because of it’s lightweight chassis and frame. "

“The Hyper Sport can be yours for a premium price of sixty-five thousand Euros. And it’s worth every last one. Faster and more exciting than the 50 year old Sport; new and refreshing. But even still, the Sport 5 has i’ts charms and will stand out from the crowd of other modern sports cars. Ultimately, the choice is yours; but maybe you’ll be swayed and pick one of these phenomenal cars for your next ‘fun car.’ Thank you all, and have a wonderful rest of the show! The stage will be open so you can come and check out the cars.”

(Nori and her translator step off the stage and the lights come on to fully illuminate the stage. Security guards remove ropes on either side of the stage, giving access to the stage and its contents to the anxious reporters in the audience.)

-Photos taken by a well known freelance Japanese reporter immediately after the presentation-

-Hoped you enjoyed my tidbit of lore, I haven’t completely fleshed out Abran and their parent company Alpha yet; but these were the only 2020 cars I had on hand, besides a single model from Alpha.


AL Autos @ the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show

Hello one and all! Welcome to the AL Autos booth here at the 2019 Frankfurt Auto Show! We here at AL Autos are excited to show you what we’ve been up to for a while now. We’ve been burning the midnight oil trying to get things just right with our newest project, a major revision on the model that we will be showcasing today. Let’s get things started.

AL Autos is proud to present…

The Newly Revised AL Autos Latissime! Where technology and practicality meet.

Back for another round, the Latissime is here to showcase the many revisions it has gone under to make it pop for the new model year: the engines, the technology, the drive system, the entirety of it. This is probably one of the most advanced iterations of the Latissime to date. For starters, we’ve revised our specialized comfort suspension system to include off-road aspects to allow it to soak up the punishment from both the road and off the road. For starters the Latissime has a new system that we like to call the “AL Advanced Terrain Projection” system that not only senses what terrain you are on, but also predicts the terrain you will encounter by tapping into both advanced GPS data and spectral cameras that scan terrain ahead. This new system adjusts the stacked twin active spring system, semi-active dampers, and specialized anti roll bars which the system can adjust to allow more flex for each individual wheel. While the system adjusts the suspension for many off-road conditions, the “AL Terrain Sense” also focuses on comfort. These advanced systems manage the weight of the Latissime and protects the occupants from overwhelming discomfort. Another fun bit of the new AL Terrain Sense system is that it alerts the driver what obstacles lay ahead and advises the driver what path to take to surmount those obstacles. Finally, we of course had to add in our advanced pothole detection system as standard on all trims. The Latissime comes with a choice of 3 engines at this moment. All of these systems are connected to an all new AL-Tech 4x4 drivetrain connected to the “AL Terrain Sense” system. Available on the RGXLE and RGXLE-F is a 3.0 L Twin Turbo V6 (ALA30DOC24TT606-MSUVLeRGXLE) producing 342.3 BHP, 298.1 lb-ft of torque, and providing up to 20.3 MPG on average (depends on trim selection). Available on the RGXLE2 and RGXLE2-F is a beefier 3.5 L Twin Turbo V6 (ALA35DOC24TT606-MSUVLERGXLE2) producing 402.4 BHP, 353.1 lb-ft of torque, and providing up to 18.6 MPG (depends on trim selection). Finally, available on the sporty RGS trim is a 5.0 L Twin Turbo V8 producing 608.3 BHP, 500.8 lb-ft of torque, and providing 20.6 MPG on average. To add onto this, the Latissime’s variety of engines also come with a system called “AL Eco Drive” which, when activated, shuts down 2 cylinders for the V6s and 4 cylinders for the V8 to increase fuel efficiency. These engines respectively connect to a 7-Speed AL-Tech Transmission, a 9-speed AL-Tech Transmission, or a specialized AL-Sports-Division 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission. All of these new innovations allow for the Latissime to become a highly advanced SUV. The fun doesn’t end here, however.

While the mechanical bits are important to the car, the interior of the Latissime has also gotten some very special attention to make the Latissime a wonderful place to be in while also providing some awesome technology to make driving the Latisime easier. The Latissime has a total of 6 options for the interior layout and design. The RGXLE and RGXLE-F trims come with a bespoke premium interior with premium Nappa Leather Seats with easy to operate fold flat 2nd row and, for the RGXLE-F a fold flat 2nd and 3rd row. The RGXLE2 and RGXLE2-F trims come with a nice upgrade, an all-new AL-Cloud-9 Luxury interior with newly revised Cloud-9 seats which also have the ability to fold the 2nd row (and 3rd row for the RGXLE2-F trim) flat with a push of a button. The RGXLE Opulentum trim gets a unique high-end interior with hand stitched quilted leather, multi point massaging, reclining (only second row) seats we appropriately named the 4 AL-Opulentum Thrones. The 6 interior options all provide astounding levels of comfort, leg room, and support for all the journey’s that you will take yourself as well as your guests on.

With regards to technology on the inside, the Latissime comes with some pretty nifty features. For starters, we loaded our ALAutos-Infotainment system onto a retina quality 16” infotainment screen for the front and an entertainment focused (movies, games, etc.) touchpad controlled 14” infotainment screen mounted on the roof for the 2nd (and the 3rd row as well when equipped). The rear infotainment systems can stream live television, provide entertaining games, provide the weather, stream music from all major platforms, and, if the front passengers want to send a message onto the screen, they can do so from the front and it will appear on the screens. Included onto the Latissime’s infotainment system for the front occupants is an Augmented Reality navigation system integrated into the central command screen. To add onto the technology, we’ve also included a digital dashboard which now has a new feature that we are excited to show. The digital dashboard is connected to our advanced parking suite and our advanced safety suite. Located in discrete locations around the Latissime are multiple cameras that essentially give a sort of bubble of cameras which show views from the front end, the sides, the rear end, and the top end of the car. These cameras have several functions. Starting with the advanced parking suite, the driver can push a button and these cameras will be displayed on the dashboard. These cameras also display parking sensor information by highlighting what obstacles you might hit on any point in the car. While driving, the side cameras are particularly useful. When you have the left- or right-hand turn signal turned on, the dashboard will automatically display your blind spots on the screen to show if you have a car in your blind spot. Finally, when offroading, the system can be activated and the car will show you if there are any obstacles that you may hit, alert you, and, if necessary, try to maneuver you away from those obstacles. The final technological feature on this car was something that we introduced on the Aurum which was recently released. Buyers have the option of integrating our new ALMedAlert system. This system includes a heart rate sensor on the steering wheel as well as many other sensors integrated into the driver’s seat. In the event that this system detects irregularities or medical emergencies with the driver, the ALMedAlert system will either prompt the drier to see if they’re ok or, in the case of a major medical emergency, will turn on an autopilot system that will safely pull the vehicle over to the side of the road and automatically call emergency services. This system can also be trained for all passenger seats as well, however the autopilot system will not engage unless the driver prompts the car to do so.

The AL Autos Latissime, with its plethora of technology and astounding levels of comfort and support make this one of our most advanced vehicles in our lineup.

Prices for the Latissime are as follows (Prices are Estimations):

RGXLE: $57,000 USD
RGXLEF: $59,500 USD
RGXLE2: $68,400 USD
RGXLE2-F: $73,000 USD
RGXLE Opulentum: $83,000 USD
RGS: $84,000 USD

That’s all for the presentation! Thank you for joining us in this special event! Feel free to look around the car if you so desire. More pictures bellow. The spec sheet for the Latissime will be available upon request soon! If there are any automotive journalists or curious persons who would like to test drive the Latissime, don’t be afraid to ask! Again, thank you for joining us here at this special event! Have a lovely rest of your day!



The ALA35DOC24TT606-MSUVLERGXLE2 sounds like a very interesting engine. What other cars have the ALA35DOC24TT606-MSUVLERGXLE2 engine?


Just as an FYI those are my engine codes…

While this engine was made specially for the Latissime, variations of these engine are used in other models in the AL Autos lineup.


The all-new 2020 8th Generation Tanaka Aventis

From left to right: Tanaka Aventis 2.0 B, 2.0 G, 2.0 L and 2.0 S

Since 1965, the Aventis had always been Tanaka’s best-selling and most popular model. It was technology cramped into one simple and affordable package. But a redesign was needed to keep up with its competitors. With crossovers taking over the market, the Aventis’s goal is to retain its budget appeal. But with Tanaka’s direction as well, it now sprinkled a little bit more upscale factor to its package.

Tanaka Aventis 2.0 B shown


The new 8th generation Aventis is now more modern and cotemporary. Instantly you can see its new big grille and its slim headlights, also with its lower grille arrangement. It goes in line with Tanaka’s direction of being more upscale. The black roof and black on some of its trunk gives a cotemporary and modern look. The rear lights are also more modern and mature. The overall side profile is more streamlined.

Chassis of a Tanaka Aventis 2.0 G shown


The J-Series engine dating back to the previous generation in 2015 is also now heavily revised. The chassis is now fully-compatible with EV applications. It is now direct-injected (for US, most of Europe and higher level Asian countries only). The J20DI-B1 EarthBoost unit (found in the 2.0 B, 2.0 G and 2.0 L) makes 210HP wihile the J20D1-C1 EarthBoost unit (found in the 2.0 S version) makes 251HP. An EV version is available as well, but will be announced later on. Double-wishbone suspension for the front and multi-link suspension at the rear for a sporty driving experience. The wheelbase was extended from 2.65m of the previous generation to 2.7m to give more stability and more legroom. Fuel economies of the 2.0 G almost reaches 50mpg while the 2.0 S can get 40mpg. There will be 2 transmission options, a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DCT. AWD is now optional.


What makes the new generation more upscale is the interior. The 2.0 B comes standard with seats being leather on the outside and very flexible cloth in the inserts. The infotainment is standard. The previous generation uses full cloth seats. The 2.0 G comes standard with a more premium infotainment system which has more function, higher resolution and its screen is bigger. The 2.0 L comes standard with seats and the rest of the interior covered in full-leather and piano black trimmings. This makes the Aventis more comfortable and premium than ever.

Specs for the car will be ready by tomorrow in the Tanaka website…

The Urbvan I-LD comes in multiple configurations. A 60 kWh battery pack that provides up to 80 miles of range, and a 73Kwh battery pack with up to 95 miles of range.

The Urbvan I-LD is about more than range, it is a mobile work station which can provide its own power supply. It comes with a 7.2Kwh plug, to export power to any utilities such as tools, making it the ideal companion for any job.

However, it maintains its purpose of delivery extraordinarily well. With a 5000Lb load capacity, it is an extremely capable small van.
