Silly thing, such a standard Jeep Wrangler, right? Now let Jeep at the IAA a not-quite-standard copy already. This is the real toy.

Not a fashion accessory but a mud-plowing toy for big kids. Not up to bitch 4 × 4’tje as Land Rover’s latest concept defender but a car that demands to abuse. A winch bumper + winch, pedestrian safety forgotten. Doors do not need, just sit in the road. In the deepest waters and on the trails dustiest the engine clean a snorkel to breathe naturally. Mud straps to complete the picture.


Because Germany has still quite some fans and even off-road area where they can go. A nice market for your specialized tools to sell them so.

Another reason for the Wrangler more seriously, the new engine. Has a new laid V6’jeMom put Chrysler in the forecastle. Even 40% stronger than the old coal plant. Not super fast but smooth acceleration times’ power delivery. WeEuropeans will also have a 2.8 liters 200 hp four-cylinder diesel. Turns on the ignition even 1.5 meters deep in the lily no longer the soup.

Mercedes B-Class E-CELL PLUS

The B-Class E-CELL PLUS is here. It is perhaps a car in concept form, but in 2014 will this electric Mercedes B-Class range extender on the market.

Mercedes sees itself naturally also that only one electric motor and battery acid as the B-Class spoon never an acceptable range will provide. This electronic project unveiled in Frankfurt is also equipped with a range extender in the form of a three-cylinder 1.0 turbo blown over 68 horsepower available. The electric motor throws in another 95 hp and a peak power of 136 hp taps.

The gasoline engine loads at low speeds using a generator, the battery and at higher speeds on the highway, for example-he takes care with the electric drive. The driving force is using a new automatic transmission to the front wheels.


Do you drive on electric only, then a distance of 100 km drive without the intervention of the Range Extender. 100 km, according to Mercedes who account for more than 80% of daily trips, also provides the range extender for a final range of 600 km.

You get over 60 km / h than the petrol engine also helps along with the drive. Top speed is 150 km / h. You get it into your head fully to one hundred km / h sprint takes so than 11 seconds to complete.

Production Ready? That’s he’s still not quite. Mercedes keeps on “almost production ready” and comes back in 2014.

Fiat Panda

With some delay but proudly shows the new Fiat city car at the IAA show. Less angular, more lascivious.

Panda is such a really super exciting course not, but we can already say that the third generation of Panda’s definitely not a sad panda, but a vekooptoppertje. The previous generation was indeed accounted for 6.5 million copies sold so there is what is at stake.


For now we find under the hood a 0.9-liter unit with mixer TwinAir technology that delivers 65 horsepower danwel trappelpaarden 85. Also on the list of options: a 69 bhp 1.2 Fire atmospheric.

The Rimac Concept One is finally here

Rimac Concept One

Rimac Concept One

What began with an ambitious bluff press release about a 1088 hp with elektrowaggie ended in a real concept that is now being shown at the IAA. It is that Mate Rimac is pretty successful.

This relatively young company from Croatia is clearly not like mashed potatoes or roaring V8’s income twaalfpitters. No, let this beautiful electro heads but with e-motor play. Are they good at, so it seems? The first ‘real’ car of the Croatians showed that using an electric motor per wheel, the All Wheel Torque Vectoring system can result in a quite cool looking sportbak with more power than a Veyron.

As it is already known is the ability to out 1088 horsepower and the car in 2.8 seconds to 100 km / h sprint. The maximum speed was at 308 km / h, but then there is obviously little of the specified range of about 600 km.


Rimac nevertheless promised that performance comparable to that of a petrol-supercar (or even better).

Behind the aluminum rims with ceramic brakes found on the front calipers to six and four piston rear bevattem. The body is constructed entirely of carbon fiber and the interior of the Concept One (not too much to watch the finish) was designed by Pininfarina, a number of former guests. The leather upholstery comes from the interior of fetishists Vilner.  Also present, an infotainment system and a head-up display.

A lack of ambition can the team of 20 designers and engineers not to blame though. The planning is in fact already in 2013 to begin the extradition of the Concept One. It must be made ​​up of 88, which is perhaps a rather unrealistic figure. Anyway, we wish them luck. Go kick some ass, Tesla!
