► 2012 Volvo C30 Electric - CRASH TEST

At the Detroit Auto Show 2011 Volvo Cars is spotlighting the important issue of electric car safety in an unusual, but distinctive way. On the company's stand there is a Volvo C30 Electric that has undergone a frontal collision test at 40 mph (64 km/h). "Our tests show it is vital to separate the batteries from the electric car's crumple zones to make it as safe as a conventional car. In Detroit we are the first car maker to show the world what a truly safe electric car looks like after a collision with high-speed impact," says Volvo Cars' President and CEO Stefan Jacoby.

► Kia KV7 Concept - Detroit 2011 (slide)
Kia Motors' design-led transformation has delivered eye-catching vehicles such as the Soul, Forte Koup, Sorento and Sportage that bear strong resemblances to the concept cars that preceded them, and today at the 2011 North American International Auto Show the brand's U.S. design studio unveiled its latest design statement -- the "KV7" concept. Conceived as a modern-day "activity van," the KV7 concept challenges the notion that vans are strictly for family transportation and reveals a vision for a vehicle with the functionality to transport a large number of people and their belongings while also serving as a connected social hub for groups of friends and adventure-seekers.





► Dacia Duster - Andros Trophy 2011
The acclaimed Trophée Andros is regarded globally as one of motor racing's most uniquely challenging disciplines. The wintry conditions encountered at a variety of challenging locations can shift extremely quickly, consequently calling for precise and almost instinctive driving skills. This makes the Championship an ideal hunting ground for driver of the Dacia Duster team, former Formula 1 star Alain Prost. As with previous years, Dacia demonstrate the robustness that has been worked into Duster's DNA. What's more, the rules which govern this exciting competition restrict the use of complex, costly technologies. This means that parts such as the chassis, gearbox and tyres must all comply with specific regulations.
