vehicles. ABS comes into play whenever sudden brakes are applied. In an occasion of
emergency braking, wheels tend to lock, which means they stop spinning. Due to this the
driver can lose control and the car can skid. ABS includes wheel speed sensors which detect
sudden change in speed and reduce the hydraulic pressure in the brake of that particular
wheel. This avoids wheel lock and the car doesn’t lose control.
batteries for their EVs. This will include batteries to be used in both Volvo and Polestar cars.
The two companies plan to set up a ‘gigafactory’ by 2026, which will produce over 50 GWh
annually. The factory will be powered by renewable energy resources entirely and will hire

The new Mercedes AMG SL Roadster has been spied testing with minimal camouflage. The new Roadster is said to be entirely different from the previous generation or current AMG GT. It combines an aluminium space frame with a ‘self-supporting structure’. The SL will arrive with a fabric hood instead of the folding hard-top in a two-seater configuration. It is expected to be powered by multiples powertrains including six-cylinder engines and a V8. The car will compete with the Porsche 911 Cabriolet in the international markets.
If Mercedes AMG G-63 is not fast enough for you, Brabus has unveiled the 900 Rocket edition based on it. The 4.5-litre V8 engine in this Super-SUV makes a massive 900hp and 1050Nm of torque with 0-100kmph in just 3.7 seconds! The car gets a ‘Widestar’ carbon body kit, a rear spoiler, 24” wheels and reworked bumpers. On the inside, it gets individual bucket seats for rear passengers. The car will be exclusive with only 25 being produced globally.
Manufactures have adopted a strategy to launch 5-seater SUVs followed by their 6/7-seater options like Hector/Hector plus, Creta /Alcazar or Harrier/Safari. But will you spend more for a pair of extra seats?
Manufactures tend to give more features because of the premium price tag these bigger counterparts carry. Additionally, the seats increase the practicality; they can be used for passengers or can be folded down to increase boot space. On the downside, if you don’t have a big family, then the seats maybe folded most of the times. Also, the bigger size makes parking and city use cumbersome.
