GM DEBUTS THE "EN-V" CONCEPT AT 2011 CES
January 2011, Las Vegas NV: The "envy" of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show
is... the EN-V Concept - a futuristic urban automotive vehicle from General Motors!
Among the most spectacular technological highlights of CES 2011 was GM's U.S. debut of the EN-V Concept car. This unique urban vehicle is GM's solution to the
drastic increases expected in urban population and the consequent problems that will challenge automotive transportation in the next twenty years.
This pod-like two seat electric vehicle is designed to alleviate the tremendous pressure on public infrastructure, traffic congestion, parking space, air quality
afford-ability and more.
In addition to its "space age" appearance EN-V cars will have the ability to communicate with each other, will cost less to operate, and will be safe and environmentally friendly. The EN-V Concept was a hit at the recent Shanghai Expo.

class of personal urban mobility
- Connectivity separates EN-V from other electric vehicles
- Autonomous driving, parking and retrieval with advanced
sensors and drive-by-wire systems
- Uses electricity supplied by a lithium-ion phosphate battery and can be recharged using ordinary outlets
Maximum speed of 40 kph and range of 40 kilometers, which is more than required by the average urban commuter
- One-sixth the size of a regular passenger car and a 1.74
meter turning radius

EN-V as a Viable Solution to Increased Urbanization:
There will be more than 1.2 billion cars on the earth in 30 years By 2030, 60% of the world's population will live in urban areas China's estimated urban population will reach 1 billion by 2030 In mega-cities, 30% of fuel is wasted while drivers look for a parking spot (costing the average commuter an extra RMB 336 per month) and 70% of vehicle owners have trouble finding parking at least once per day. Today's cars require more than 10 square meters of parking space and are parked more than 90% of the time Half of all trips in metropolitan areas are 5 kilometers or less and 28% are 1.6 kilometers or less

2014 Mercedes S-Class - assistance systems animation
Mercedes has officially unveiled the 2014 S-Class at the Airbus A380 delivery center in Hamburg, Germany.
Designed to become one of the most luxurious and advanced vehicles ever constructed, the 2014 S-Class has an evolutionary design that incorporates a sportier front fascia, a larger grille and a gentle slanting rear end. The sleek styling enables the model to have drag coefficient of 0.24 which is pretty impressive considering the pint-sized CLA has a drag coefficient of 0.23.
Mercedes S500 Vs Fiat 500 : Big car vs small car
Well- technically neither the Mercedes S500 is the biggest car in the world, nor the Fiat 500 is the smallest one, but still, both define these terms perfectly in the car market. Some may describe such a test, conducted by the Czech program "Road Look" as insane or meaningless- like comparing apples to oranges. Yet some proud Fiat 500 owners (in addition to small cars promoters also) would also see it as a comparison between the "car of the year" prize holder (Fiat 500) and the (claimed) best car in the world, the S-class. This movie is not intended to mock the exquisite little Fiat 500; the difference in size, performance & price just to name a few is great as expected (the S-class is undoubtedly the winner in these criterias & in many other ones), but still, the Fiat 500 is a greatly engineered little car that stood this test in a way some bigger cars would envy , & also it's a car which has it's many strong points & special market appeal. In all cases, no one can deny the novelty of the idea of this comparison. This is the test in the shape of a music video which I made,& shrunken to a concise- but informative version of it. The song I chose is "Tormentor" by "W.A.S.P" .
