Mondo Official Press Conference.
Geneva Auto Show, March 6th 2019.
Welcome to Mondo’s first overseas international appearance at the 89th Geneva Auto Show. We will only be announcing one car today, however we believe its significance to us warrants its own event. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
The Mondo 10 Line.
Since it’s inception, the Mondo 10 line has been about one concept; create the ultimate highway cruiser. Such a promise entails these aspects: exquisite luxury, sublime comfort, excellent power, and supreme high speed dynamics. We envision a car where you can relax and tend to your businesses as you hurtle down the highway at speeds most cars can’t even sustain. As such, the process to find perfection is a multi generational endeavor.
Today, for the first time in history, we reveal the next step towards cruising perfection under the international spotlight of the Geneva Auto Show.
The All New Mondo E10 Raja.
Make Way For The King.
This is that next step. In this 6th generation, the Mondo E10 has been redesigned from the ground up to incorporate the latest in technology, bringing it to the forefront of the car industry. The Mondo E10 in Raja trim is the flagship of Mondo, equipped with the finest luxury balanced with generous power.
The first step of a luxury cruiser is unrivaled interior excellence. As such, the Mondo E10 Raja provides it in spades, and then improves upon it through technology. Sitting in the Mondo E10 Raja is an experience in itself, as intelligent ergonomics algorithms analyze your seating position and detects your dimensions, and then determines the best seating adjustment. Once settled in you may notice the extensive interior detailing. Panels are embossed with a subtle Parang type batik pattern, symbolizing power and prestige. Handles and other small trim items are wrapped in high quality Rattan, a durable plant based material traditionally woven by craftsmen. Mood lighting is comprised of infinitely adjustable LED strips and dots embedded in the trim, the panoramic sunroof, and seats. Said panoramic sunroof is also equipped with adjustable opacity, filtering out any harsh sunlight and heat. Along with 4 zone climate control, the cabin is kept at optimal temperature at all times. Further amenities include heated and cooled seats, massage functions, temperature controlled storage bins, integrated wireless charging, and a full compliment of premium Carman Hardon speakers.
Moving forward, the definition of luxury expands to not only mean comprehensive grace, comfort, and high quality, but also connectivity. Staying up to speed and updated is quickly becoming a modern day necessity.
As such, the Mondo E10 Raja SerbaConn+ infotainment system is essentially a smartphone on wheels. The dashboard is now a fully interactive surface, thanks to the advent of curved OLED screen technology
(Yes I’m sorry if this sounds familiar Yang but I swear I’ve thought of this independently years ago). Input is done through touch, gestures, or voice dictation. Important information such as vehicle information, collision avoidance, traffic information, and directions can be projected onto the windshield to maximize road attention. In addition to car information, SerbaConn+ is fully internet capable and is equipped with smartphone mirroring, enabling you to access emails, news, maps, and other media directly through the comfortably large back seat interface of the Mondo E10 Raja.
Operating such technology is SerbaConn AI, our latest and greatest vehicle operating software. It handles all your preferences and coordinates it according to your needs. SerbaConn AI also handles inputs into the infotainment system. With it, gone are the days of clunky commands, faulty speech recognition, and slow response. SerbaConn AI understands everyday conversation, meaning inputting a command through SerbaConn AI is as easy as having a chat with your acquaintances. It is no longer just another way to interact with your vehicle. It is your new travel companion, assistant, and is actually a good friend to have around.
Despite all the features and conveniences packaged with the Mondo E10 Raja, it is not without driving competence. Such is the nature of the perfect highway cruiser, therefore we will not settle for less. The heart of the Raja is the Z57 engine, a turbocharged 5.7 liter V12 tuned to produce 465 horsepower and 710 Nm of torque. Coupled with an all-aluminum construction, reducing the total weight of the Mondo E10 Raja by over 100 kg, and aerodynamic drag reduction engineering, this means a 0-100 km/h time of 5.3 seconds, a top speed nearing 300 km/h, and a comfortable cruising speed in excess of 280 km/h. Despite the performance, the Mondo E10 Raja still achieves a more than respectable combined fuel economy rating of 7.4 L/100km.
Such speeds cannot be sustained safely without supreme high speed handling dynamics. As such, we have paid careful attention to bringing the power of the Z57 engine to the wheels. SerbaDrive AWD keeps the power and control constantly applied to the ground, and the advanced ActiveHydro suspension has been tuned to strike a balance between comfort and handling superiority. As a result, the Mondo E10 Raja has grip levels exceeding 1.00g.
A staple of Mondo since the beginning has always been carefully crafted design. Each car has been molded into the form it is destined to take, creating a perfect synergy between form and function. The Mondo E10 Raja continues this tradition of excellence.
The large front grille of the Mondo E10 Raja allows plenty of breathing space for the large Z57 engine, while simultaneously exuding the presence it deserves. In times when such cooling is not required, the grille is equipped with intelligent flaps that close to improve aerodynamics, resulting in even better economy. As per Mondo design, the grille is split down the middle by the Mondo Wrench logo to signify its hierarchy on the vehicle.
The GarudaWing lights, a signature of Mondo. Its stacked configuration and bending shape is intended to depict the wings of the Garuda bird. For the Mondo E10 Raja, the GarudaWing lights have been upgraded with BirdsEyes technology, adaptive laser lights that automatically adjust direction and brightness according to conditions. Working with radar technology, BirdsEyes can also intelligently distinguish potential unseen dangers and highlight them on the road.
The direction line, another Mondo design staple. It is intended to depict a guiding hand pushing the vehicle forward, signifying speed and confidence. The Mondo E10 Raja takes the direction line into the modern era by infusing it with technology. It is now also an active sensor system, alerting you of potential harm from the sides and rear. Also integrated into the direction line are the smart door handles, with a flush aerodynamic design and fingerprint detection entry.
The rear fascia has also been designed to bring about an air of presence. The stacked tail lights point towards the center, where the Mondo E10 name is enshrined in chrome. The elegant lines of the lower bumper trail from rear brake ducts that function to keep the brakes cool, and direct the extracted air carefully as to not impact the Mondo E10’s aerodynamics. The liftback configuration, while providing excellent practicality, also provides superior aerodynamic characteristics as opposed to a traditional saloon layout, as well as bestowing upon the Mondo E10 an elegant, flowing silhouette.
