2019 Evgenis Sphinx

Is there anywhere we can’t reach? This is the task our latest and greatest offering brings to the table for our first reveal of 2019. A car design to go everywhere and anywhere. The Sphinx is here to prove that crossovers aren’t just a gimmick or a fad, but they are true everyday cars that can do simply anything. And unlike many others in this segment, our promise to you is that the Sphinx can truly go further.

This latest generation of the Sphinx is here to once again, like all models prior, revolutionise the segment with our latest offerings in technology, design and luxury to ensure that we always stay true to what we are and what we do. “Premium, standard.”

Similar to our latest models revealed in 2018, the Sphinx incorporates many of the key styling cues and core values that people have grown to love on all of our models, will still retaining a degree of identity and uniqueness within the range. The Sphinx also adds some new and exciting elements to the design for 2019, many of which you will see in future reveals this year. Furthermore, we wanted the vehicle to feel and look like the luxury vehicle it is, meaning even the finest of details have been taken into account, and all technological advances have been designed to enhance and compliment the lines throughout.

Towards the front of the vehicle, the integration theme apparent on previous unveilings continues, meaning a sleek headlight design runs seamlessly into a bold and imposing grille that embraces the lower section of the headlight cluster. Naturally, the company logo takes centre stage within this grille, now with a chequered chrome design. A large chrome strip runs from one side to the other above the grille and finishing at the headlight clusters,with a further low strip seamlessly integrating into the DRLs, adding a further element of classiness.

The lower section of the front of the vehicle is designed to give a sense of muscularity and ruggedness, while also retaining the key charm and professionalism we strive to include within all our models. This extra ruggedness isn’t that usual of an Evgenis, but we really wanted to send across the message that this is a car that can take the rough stuff.

Heading around to the rear section of the Sphinx, a trend that began with the Basilisk has made a return once more with a light cluster embraces and being integrated within a section of gloss back, adding an extra touch of class to the vehicle. New to this vehicle is a light bar that runs across the car and a new and more interesting internal design to the lighting cluster. As with all models in 2018, the model name takes centre stage on the centre of the boot…

Like we always offer on all models, the Sphinx will come with a wide array of design options that will allow you to make this car a personal statement and truly yours. The Sphinx will be available with a wide range of metallic, gloss and matte paint finishes as well as being available on our Evgenis Custom Collection scheme, allowing you to allocated any colour you desire to this vehicle. Wheel choices range from 17 inches up to 21 inches (model dependent) and in a variety of designs.

Upon launch, the Sphinx will be available with only petrol and diesel engines (market dependent). Petrol engines include the 1.6-litre turbocharged inline 4 with 150 bhp, available with both manual and automatic transmissions, as well as the choice between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. We also will offer our 2.0-litre turbocharged inline 4 with 200 bhp, available solely with four-wheel drive with either a manual or automatic transmission (gearboxes choices market dependent).

In the future, an ES model will join the line-up, stay tuned for the unveiling later in 2019.

Diesel engines will be covered by our award-winning 2.0-litre turbocharged inline 4 producing either 150 or 190 bhp, only available in Europe and other select markets.

Later in 2019, a true hybrid will become available equipping the 1.6-litre inline 4, a plug-in hybrid will become available for extended electric-only range and greater power output, again mated to the 1.6-litre inline 4, as well as an electric-only version which we can confirm will equip a 65 kWh battery allowing for exceptional range capabilities and sensational performance. All these alternative fuel options will arrive at all markets.

We continue to work hard on becoming the best in offering the latest ultimate advanced technology on our products and the Sphinx certainly has no exception to this. We also continue to offer the Sphinx with just one trim level including a wide range of standard equipment and technology that can be upgraded with some simple packs to offer the greatest experience possible.

As standard, the Basilisk will have numerous autonomous features including automatic emergency braking, speed sign recognition and more. Parking technology as standard is extensive, including all-round parking sensors and a rear-view backup camera.

To upgrade these features further, the “Advanced Autonomy Pack” will add adaptive cruise control with stop&go and traffic assist, allowing the car to safely maintain distance from the car in front at all times and even restart the journey should the traffic come to a rather unwanted stop. This will also add lane centering assist, blind spot monitoring and so much more, giving the car complete level 2 autonomy.

The “Advanced Parking Pack” adds complete park assist, allowing the car to complete the full parking procedure in parallel and perpendicular cases without any input from the driver, as well as adding surround cameras that offer the highest resolution image of any car made on our new internal displays.

The technological feats do not end with the car as even once you are outside of the vehicle, thanks to the new Evgenis Connect App for your mobile, you will have further options. With the Sphinx, you will find additional features, including the ability to park the car from outside of the vehicle, preempt the climate control system so the car is warm/cool upon entering and so much more, as well as allowing you to see key information relevant to the car.

The Sphinx will be available with two choices of dials, with the standard offering being our hybrid design with both analogue and digital dials, which can be upgraded at little cost to our CDC (customisable driver cockpit) which boasts an exceptionally large, high-resolution display. Our main infotainment display has been updated for 2019 and now measures 10” as standard with our electric version coming later in 2019 fitting the upgraded 14” variant seen in the Basilisk las year. This infotainment system incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard.

Evgenis loves to offer our customers a premium standard not just with technology and the driving experience, but also with our interiors and build quality. The Sphinx is here to really offer a high-end experience within the category, with finishes as standard many rivals would include within the options list. All the materials, finish and design has been carefully put together to offer a true sense of classiness and luxury.

As standard, the Sphinx includes cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, man-made leather to open up the doors to a more inclusive vision that we have taken the challenge to embrace and see with greater importance, while standard leather can been fitted at little cost. Seating is also massively adjustable with electrically-adjusting lumbar support as standard, with fully-adjustable, massaging leather seats also being available. Rear seating can be equally as impressive and luxurious, offering ample passenger space in the form of both legroom and headroom, as well as folding, reclining and sliding to maximise comfort and space.

Interior materials are of extremely high quality, with there being a great importance of more premium and nicer interior elements in this car and it really does show. Of course, depending on your choice of seating and other design elements your cabin will appear one way or the other but always true to you, but this could include a mix of fine leather, woods, metals, glasses and so much more on offer. As with external design, the interior is also made further customisable under the Evgenis Custom Collection scheme that will allow any purchaser to make a completely unique design.

The Sphinx will come standard with 4G connectivity plus emergency callout, with the first being completely free for the first 3 years of ownership, although extensions packages can be purchased, and emergency callout being free for life.

We have always put great emphasis on making sure our vehicles offering a compelling driving experience and the Sphinx is sure to make no exception to this. As to be expected with cars of this category and given the design language indications from before, the Sphinx is set up to be a wonderfully comfortable car while retaining a level of sportiness for driving pleasure.

Great emphasis as well has been placed on making sure our four-wheel drive models do have the ability to go off-road, meaning that all models equipping this system will come with manually lockable differentials and a low-range gearbox. Additional off-road ability can be obtained if required with options such as greater ride height and better-suited tyres to rough conditions. Our technology has also been optimised to work with these conditions, with hill ascent assist and hill descent control as standard across the range, as well as a variety of other assists and alerts that will help you in a sticky situation.

Available in all markets to order in March 2019, deliveries in May 2019.
UK pricing starting from £27,495
EU pricing starting from €28,995
US pricing starting from $30,995 (2.0 4x4 Aut. only)


Huangdou Press Release Event


Strobe lights start flashing while Jolin Tsai’s 怪美的 starts to play. Vibrant, youthful phrases start flashing on the screen. Around the chorus, out comes the 1991 CC-100s and the new 2019 Huangdou CC.

You thought it would be some hype ass hatchback that’s fun to drive? Sike, it’s a crossover

2019 Huangdou CC

The Huangdou CC is the company’s revamp of the classic CC-100s; a youthful convertible hatchback which emphasized the driving experience. The adolescent heart of the CC-100s returns in 2019, with a santa-fe lookin ass grille Huangdou’s new large-grille design language. Every trim of the CC comes with a standard sunroof because a convertible-top SUV would have the IIHS yelling at you to preserve the open-air experience which the CC-100s provided. Each CC uses the either the Jinhe-Huangdou 2.2L inline-4 or the 2.0 litre ranging from 173-308 horsepower, while wheel sizes range from 16-20 inches. The suspension geometry of the compact crossover is strut and trailing-arm.

Huangdou CC Au


The New CC comes with Huangdou’s revised safety suite dubbed ForceField. Whilst the older system included parking sensors, radar cruise control and blind spot monitoring, its newer suite now tacks on forward collision warning and braking, active lane-keep assist, as well as rear cross-traffic alert. Au trims use the ForceField+ which add more features onto the existing ForceField system. The car will keep the doors from opening if it detects oncoming traffic, brake when reversing if the backup sensors detect that it is at excessively close proximity to an obstacle, as well as steer itself back over if changing lanes into another vehicle.


Alongside the standard heads-up-display on the Au trims, a holographic assistance system named Huangdou Assistant (I know, rather lame) could also be optioned in. Like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, said assistant can deliver weather, traffic and other information by a voice prompt. Avatars are interchangeable, from a talking soy bean to some anime-ass waifu named Yumi.


something like this


The CC Sport takes the crossover and shove a turbo inline-4 making 308 horses into it, mounting it alongside a new 7-speed DCT, allowing it to hit 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. 235-width tires on 19-inch wheels send the CC through corners at 1.07g. The Huangdou ForceField, a panoramic moonroof, performance exhaust, as well as the Huangdou Assistance can all be added as options.

The CC starts at $15 000, rises up to $35 000 and can be optioned with either FWD and AWD.

As the CC rolls off the stage, the strobe lights start flashing again. The event’s not over yet is it?


Huangdou Press Event Part 2?

As the CC and CC-100s roll off the stage, Show Luo’s No Joke begins to play. Where do they get the licensing for all this music anyways? Smoke starts to accumulate, the strobe lights flash vigorously as a 1989 Huangdou SC-153RE and the new Huangdou SC slide onto stage.

shown: huangdou sc lite

2019 Huangdou SC

The new Huangdou SC reincarnates the tail-happy coupe of joy that was the SC-153RE. Each SC besides the SportX used a 191-horsepower 1.6L inline-4 mated to either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT, not only allowing for lightweight feel and superior performance, but also astounding fuel economy. Each non-SportX SC would average around 40-45 mpg. Suspension geometry was wishbone-multilink with the ability to option in active dampers. Like the CC and other new Huangdous, ForceField and Huangdou Assistant are standard on the top trim. The SC came with 5 trims, with the barebones Lite up to the SportX.


The Au trim of the CC wraps its 17-inch wheels in 245-width tires, sending it through corners at 1.17g. 0-60 time clocks in around 5.5 seconds for the Au trim. Launch control was included in every model except the Lite.


The Lite trim removes most of the bells and whistles that the other trims offer. It would use the same powerplant mated to a 6-speed manual. However, 205-width tires wrapped in a non-performance compound were used. Still, the Lite would be able to go through corners at 1.04g and hit 60 mph in 6 seconds. To save weight, seats are the most basic they can be, infotainment system being the most basic Huangdou offers too. All advanced safety systems besides a backup camera are removed, providing a barebones 2212-pound driving machine. The Lite is priced around $20 000


The Huangdou SC SportX is as close to Jinhe as Huangdou gets, with a 345-horsepower turbo 1.6 and AWD which brought the SportX to 60 in 4.3 seconds. Huangdou’s active suspension suite was offered on the SportX, taking the vehicle around corners at roughly 1.18g. Huangdou Assistant is standard, while the safety suite could be optioned in. The SportX starts around $33 000.


I never thought a Chinese manufacturer could ever come up with two stunningly bold designs, but the SC and CC have proven to be just that - they would make an ideal pairing of trackday car and daily driver.


2019 Harada Hercule

Harada Hercule HRT X, in Cardinal Red

The 2019 Harada Hercule is the facelift of the last generation model, from 2008. The chassis and panels are made of corrosion resistant steel, and has macpherson progressive (active on some models) front suspension, and solid axle progressive (active on some models) rear suspension, which allows the Hercule to be super strong and resistant. All models of the Hercule use a 5.7 litre V8, the 3ZM, with the highest end model, the HRT X, having over 560 horsepower.

Harada Hercule Premium, in Obsidian Black

The Hercule is very practical, with 5 seats, with a long cab, a long bed, or both, as options. The truck has up to a towing capacity of 2092 KG, and a load capacity of over 800 KG. A 0-62 MPH of up to 5.9 seconds is also possible, with the range topping HRT X, which also comes with a standard 7 speed dual clutch transmission, and a 4x4 drive type.

Harada Hercule Road King, in Burgundy Brown

With comfort and features for all drivers, whether it’s heavy off-roading, towing a boat, or taking the family to the beach, the Hercule is one of the best choices for a fullsize truck, as it has been for ages. Upcoming will be the next generation Taiga fullsize SUV which will be based off the Hercule, a very reliable platform, that’ll last ages. Hercule is named after Hercules, a Greek demigod, who was very famous for his strength and power, which is the perfect name for such a truck

2019 Harada Topisa

2019 Harada Topisa LX, in Silver Grey

We are releasing the USDM version of the Umbra, the Topisa, for 2019, and it is the proper midsize 3rd row crossover it’s always been, but with even more modern features to update the original 2014 model to be more than up to date in 2019 and after. The car has LED headlights, DRLs, and Foglights, with a modern floating roof style C-Pillar. It also comes standard with an electronically folding 2 seat third row, which is one of the best 3rd rows in it’s class. The car has an optional 3rd row entertainment system (standard with luxury package and Premium+ model), which can download videos, movies and photos, and can support both blu-ray and DVD.

2019 Harada Topisa Premium+, in Obsidian Black

The facelifted Topisa comes with the same naturally aspirated 3.6 litre V6, 3ES engine, as the non-facelifted version, although it is still up to date as ever, with over 275 horsepower and a smooth power curve. The engine has been in production since 2014, and is known for it’s amazing reliability, as a similar version is also used in some of Harada’s new military trucks. The engine is quiet, but still can sound, especially good after VCpT engages, at around 3600 RPM, giving the whole family good fun. All variants of the Umbra and Topisa since 2014 use the 36HAFSB version of the 3ES, meant for comfortable, economical usage in crossovers, large cars, SUVs and more.

2019 Harada Topisa Premium, in Brilliant Blue

There are multiple options for what model Topisa you would like, each with an AWD option, sports package, and more. The car starts at $30,500, and every one of those dollars are worth it, as the car comes with all the features you could ever need from it, whether it’s at the beach, going to the nearby mountain, or taking everyone to school.

2019 Harada Sereva

2019 Harada Sereva S, in Fire Orange

The 2019 Sereva is the second generation of the model, with the last one coming out of production in 2003. We are proud to unveil the second generation in the same color as the original, Flame Orange. The Sereva is very sporty, comfortable, stylish, and practical with LED DRLs and LED foglights. The car has active double wishbone suspension, both at the front and rear. All models of the Sereva use the 3ET engine-with the S having a 1.7 litre producing 236 horsepower, and the S 2.1 producing 326 horsepower-which is turbocharged and has VCpT, which both help the engine be economical, and powerful.

2019 Harada Sereva S 2.1, in Flame Red

The Sereva is very quick, with a 0-62 of up to 4.5 seconds (Sereva S 2.1 with Optional DCT), and a limited top speed of 155 MPH, and it has a quick manual transmission, alloy rims, sports tyres, and a limited slip differential, all as standard, which helps you feel in full control of the car. The car is made of aluminum and AHS steel, which keeps the car rigid and light, and vented front brakes which are stronger and ligher than normal, solid disc brakes.

2019 Harada Sereva S, in Pine Green

The new Sereva will be available in two models at launch, the Sereva S, and the Sereva S 2.1. The S starts at $37,500, and the S 2.1 starts at $41,200. Both have a hardtop, convertible design, which keeps the car strong, but still with room for open-top enjoyment. The Sereva is RWD, just as the last generation was, which also makes the car very fun, whether it’s at a corner, a tight forest road, or an open highway.

2019 Studio di design Fiorentino TURBINA II Concept

The Turbina II is an evolution of the original Turbina concept released in 1966. 53 Years later, Studio di design Fiorentino have created an evolution to the original unique concept.

Using a Biofuel Turbine to charge an Electric drive system, this concept brings the unique and original decisions of using Turbine systems, and mating them to a modern electric system.

The Turbina II takes the modern sleek designs of the era and creates a unique and interesting design around it.

The 2019 Turbina II is expected to have different version of different spec created throughout 2019 and into 2020.


It’s Nicholas Justinian, back after the first day of the NAIAS to give you the low down on all the new reveals! As always, be sure to check Our Page because we do reviews and more news! Without further ado, lets get into the reveals!

The Ursula F7 is here! And they’ve been sure to highlight the failed 2007 concept that never actually made it to production. Because failure sure makes me want to spend a ton of money on a luxury sedan! There’s a bunch of models ranging from a hybrid V6 all the way up to a V10. They claim to have best in class interior, but I really have no clue how that’s judged. Seems like something anybody can just make up. It’s got all the latest gadgets apparently, but no word on pricing for this “best in class interior.” I’d certainly be interested to see when it hits production this winter.

There’s more at their stand too… something about a concept by Studio di design Fiorentino, which, granted, looks far better than the F7 we’re getting in production, but apparently a touch screen replaces all the hard buttons. That just means I can’t use gloves to turn on the heat when it gets cold. Lovely design. Hope that part doesn’t make it to production.

and lastly an LMP1 Prototype. Alright. Hard to get excited about something when you don’t reveal the specs. If you’re trying to keep the specs hush hush, fair enough, but I then fire back, why reveal it at all?

AL Autos had a presentation so long I needed to crack open a book. And apparently IREV doesn’t actually mean EV. Cool. that’s not confusing at all. Also I wonder how they managed to fit double wishbone suspension to a FWD car…

a larger Quaestus performance sedan/wagon. But dear god is it heavy, especially for a midsize sedan! How is this supposed to be a fun driver’s car, men?

Evgenis (Spelt correctly this time), surprise suprise, it’s a crossover… yaaaaaaaaay. Looks good, it will drive predictably and plenty of people will buy it. It’s cruelty-free, vegan friendly and personality free as well! Apparently it comes with level 2 autonomy as well, which is some actually stimulating news. Also at 31,000$ USD starting price I don’t exactly know what it’s supposed to compete with? It’s too expensive for C segment regular crossovers but too cheap for the premium stuff. Thus is the curse of selling European cars in America I suppose… There’s also a hybrid planned later in the year.

Huangdou was actually the most pleasant surprise thus far. I mean, I know we’re supposed to hate cars being remade as crossovers, but the CC was always a crummy cheap little Chinese hatchback, and this new CC crossover actually seems to have some mass market appeal, I even daresay looks athletic and nice. Maybe if they took themselves more seriously and stopped trying to be “hip” with pop culture refrences and making the navigation anime girls we’d actually have a serious Chinese threat here in America. But starting at 15,000$USD, Which is less than B segment crossovers, I’m willing to bet it’s going to be cheap and terrible to drive. Maybe if they took themselves more seriously we’d actually have a mass market Chinese threat.
They also have a new SC, which, uh, doesn’t look as good. But it’s trying to move upmarket so good luck with that.

Here’s Harada’s whole new fleet. Truck, Crossover and sports car. The truck is a truck. I don’t like the look of this one, the headlights are too small and wierd looking, and what’s the point of a truck with a DCT and can only get 11MPG? I’d stick to the base model personally, at 33,000$, it seems like a good deal, if that’s a crew cab.
There’s a new Topisa, which I thought was the one styled by Luceat, because this thing looks surprisingly good for a Harada, and it can be had for 30,000$ or thereabouts. Like the Sphinx, it’s a European crossover brought to America and sold at an odd price. I think the Evgenis is more stylish and luxurious to my tastes but let me know what you’d take!
And lastly are two sports coupes which, uh, seem to be priced exactly the same? Are you competing with yourself there Harada? Not the best marketing strategy. The sports coupe segment has pretty dwindling sales as is, and it’s hard to see how dividing your sales twice can be sustainable…

And Lastly… Studio di design Fiorentino made a concept car. apparently it’s bio-fuel and E-drive? Huh. That’s a cool concept… I don’t like the look, but show me something that moves and I’ll be officially impressed.


Fuji Motorworks Press Event I

Eurobeat starts playing as the stage lights up with dark red LEDs. The growl of a modern six cylinder, accompanied by the brief flutter of a blowoff valve, announce the arrival of the main attraction. Fuji’s first mid-engine car since the discontinuation of the RRS in 1997 - and one that will define the brand’s design language for the foreseeable future.

2019 Fuji Sceptre

shown: sceptre gt-st

Sceptre GT-ST

Featuring the 2.5 liter 6 cylinder powerplant that will also appear in the new Clarity, the GT-ST produces 449 horsepower from the mid-mounted engine, going through a 7-speed DCT or 7-speed manual to the rear wheels. 0-60 is, then, achieved in less than 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 200 mph easily reached in this $35,000 pocket rocket - with the adjustable wing retracted. With the wings deployed, the GT-ST will easily pull upwards of 1.2G on the skidpad thanks to its active pushrod suspension, and stop in 102 ft thanks to its massive brakes. All this while still returning an EPA estimated 31 mpg average, the new Sceptre is sure to please. At just $34,695, dealerships will begin to get the Sceptre one-by-one, with limited allocations divided throughout the network anually.

Sceptre RS-ST

With the same engine as the GT-ST, the RS-ST doesn’t have straight line performance as its target. Nor just a time on the track - the RS-ST is made to be an occasion. With over 500 lbs of downforce on each end, the RS-ST can pull over 1.4G on the skid pad, and costs the same as the GT-ST at the expense of comfort. Replacing the sports compound tires are slicks, the radio is gone, and centerlock wheels take the place of the GT-ST’s 5 lugs. This racing-inspired package is just $34,950, although only 1,500 will be produced. Deliveries will begin in mid-March.

Ermm… F3 with 600 HP? I don’t remember having that in my presentation.

@DoctorNarfy The F3 is mine, not @11alualhati 's.


As smoke begins to fill the room, a lone businessman walks on to the stage.

For nearly 40 years, the Corsica Cheetah has been one of the best-selling muscle cars in the US. Hopefully, today’s announcement will keep that streak running.

Let’s talk about the exterior shall we?

The big grille makes a bold statement. It connects to the side grilles which was designed to have some depth. The headlights were carefully designed to be as beautiful as it can be and also as technologically advanced with Matrix LED Lights. Laser lights are optional. Going to the rims, the shapes are carefully shaped and was make sure to blend in with the car. The side vents were also shaped to give the car a distinct look. The door handles still open traditionally, but modernized to give its beautiful shape. The rear lights were shaped and were all red. The reverse lights are placed on the rear bar to not disrupt the red theme of the rear lights. All of the design compared together and you get this distinct handsome look to it.

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit the Tanaka booth. 2019 is exciting! Stay tuned for more models. Goodbye!


You have just made a potential Ursula F7 competitor.

I forgot to say, the Rakuda is sold in China, South Korea, Middle East, North America, Australia, and the UK. The Sereva is sold in Japan and Southeast Asia, and stuff is exactly same because they are sibling cars. Sorry!

The future of urban mobility by Gabatron

Sustainability, small footprint and agility are the 3 pillars on which the VillE has been designed.


With a footprint of only 2.6 m², you can move with any inconvenience around the city, and park easily.


Things like the EV propulsion system (23kW motor+10kWh Li-Ion battery), body and chassis panels made in recycled glass and carbon fiber, make this car respectful with the environment.

You can charge the car into a normal Schuko plug (220v) in 4h, and if you want to charge quickly (up to 80%. Not recommended method) in 15 minutes.


In less than 2.5m long, It can carry two persons, and it has two luggage compartments: one on the front, and other on the rear. And if you want more space, you can fold the rear seat.

And thanks to it’s reduced turning radius (<8m) and reduced size, you can maneuver easily in any circunstance.

Do you want to drive outside the city? Thanks to the (limited) 80km/h top speed, you can travel between two cities.


It could be a small car, but we invested a lot of money and time to get a high safety standard.

The car has a front, rear and side absorption zones, and a reinforced cell, thanks to using composite materials combined with AHS steel. And of course, seatbelts, front airbag, and sidebags.


You can choose two modes of purchase: paying the full car (9963€), or pay the car alone, and a monthly fee for batteries during 12, 24, 36 or 48 months, equivalent to 4000€.

And thanks to be an electric car, the running costs are pretty reduced.

What’s next?

Depending with the public reaction about this car, probably we can design a bigger model, with 4 seats, but with the same concepts.

Test drive

If you want to test drive the car, we have brought a few units in the auto show, so visitors and media can try it out. Click here to book your test drive.

NOTE: is a pre-production model, so some things could’t correspond with the final version. Any feedback is welcome.
