Cool Cars GNR News Edition | April 30th 2021

Our bi-weekly newsletter - presenting the best of Great North Road.

Featuring: Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, Lexus, McLaren, Porsche and Volkswagen.

Welcome to Cool Cars - GNR News Edition,

 

After two decades of dipping their toes in the world of electrification with an impressive range of hybrid powered vehicles, Lexus has now introduced their first full EV: the UX300e. In some ways, it is curious that they took this long because the near-silent driving - that full electrification delivers - fits perfectly with the trademark refinement Lexus is renowned for.

 

The first all-electric Lexus comes with 150kW power and 400km range, but all the reports I’ve seen also mention that it still feels and drives like a Lexus. So do give the team at Lexus of Auckland City a call to arrange your drive in the UX300e.

 

On the subject of EV’s, I’ve sung the praises of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S previously - mostly about its grin-inducing 733 horsepower. This week, Giltrap Porsche feature the less ‘extreme’ Taycan, which with rear-wheel-drive, offers an old school feel to the future-focused powertrain.

 

This Taycan with Performance Battery Plus delivers up to 521km of range and still boasts 350kW (470bhp) and 0-100km/h time of 5.4 seconds, so still, plenty to grin about!

 

Enjoy this week's collection of Cool Cars from Great North Road.
