Preview: Into the Advent season with Enyaq, Amarok and Alpine

The Advent season is gradually making its way into our thinning diary. Nevertheless, there will be two press presentations next week. Skoda has refreshed the Enyaq. Optimized battery management and an increase in power from the further developed rear engine ensure shorter charging times and more dynamics. The top speed is now only limited at 180 km/h for all models (previously only for the RS). The additional designation iV has been dropped with immediate effect. In addition, the top equipment "Laurin & Klement", named after the founders of the brand and familiar from other models, will be available in future.

At Volkswagen, the focus is on the new Amarok developed jointly with Ford. The pick-up offers better off-road capabilities, over 20 new assistance systems and more engine and transmission variants than ever before.

We also talk to one of the most successful car dealers in Germany. Burkhard Weller, sees the potential market share of Chinese brands in Germany at ten to 15 percent: "And one or two European manufacturers will have to give up volume because the market is no longer growing," says the founder of the Weller Group in an interview with Autoren-Union Mobilität.

Guido Borck visited the Alpine plant in Dieppe. The brand's sports cars are still produced there by hand.

The end of the year gives the caravanning industry pause for thought as it opens its season in January with the CMT trade fair: After the boom of the recent past, demand is falling back to normal levels. How are manufacturers reacting?

As usual, we will also keep you up to date with the latest news and developments in the broad and colorful field of mobility. (aum)
