BMW i3 strutted the streets at Santa Barbara Earth Day Festivities

2014-05-16T18:22:02+00:00May 16th, 2014|BMW|

2014 marked the 14th year that the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival hosted the longest running public Green Car Show in the United States. The latest models of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles for sale were on display, included the all new BMW i3, which is the first ever production carbon fiber car. Visitors were encouraged to test drive, talk with owners, and learn about the different features each environmentally friendly vehicle had to offer.

bmw-santa-barbara-facility-rszBMW Santa Barbara made its first appearance at the Green Car Show this year debuting the all new BMW i3. While this is BMW’s first all electric production vehicle, BMW has over 40 years of extensive research and experience with electric vehicles. The all-electric BMW i3 started with innovation and equates a new understanding of premium vehicles that is defined by sustainability.

The BMW Group has been the automotive leader of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 8 consecutive years, since 2005 and was the first automotive company to be continuously ranked stating in 1999. Sustainability starts at the beginning of the supply chain where the carbon fiber manufacturing process uses clean energy from one of the world’s largest hydroelectric power plants, the Grand Coulee Dam. Every detail of the i3 is based on sustainability from design to production to the product life cycle and disposal, sustainability is an attitude that has no beginning and no end.

The BMW i3 has a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge and is available with a range of complimentary 360° Electric products and services allowing you to drive with confidence. Made using extremely strong and lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic, the BMW i3 is innovative from its foundation. The sustainable design combined with BMW’s undeniable agility and premium features, this is an EV that will change how you think about driving.

Visitors at the Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival were asked to pledge to make a positive change for the environment. Some chose to pledge to drive less and others chose to pledge that they will drive electric. For the average driver, switching to electric reduces CO2 emissions by about 9,000 pounds every year. Come to BMW Santa Barbara and decide today to make the switch to an electric vehicle by getting into the new BMW i3.

The 540-horsepower and 540 lb-ft output of the 4.4-liter ALPINA Bi-Turbo V8 is channeled through an 8 speed Sport Automatic Transmission with ALPINA Switch-Tronic and BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system.  The carefully tuned stainless steel ALPINA exhaust system features twin elliptical tailpipes and resonates with an unobtrusive, yet deep exhaust note.

The BMW ALPINA B6 Gran Coupe is only available as a special order vehicle with capacity-limited production. Contact BMW Santa Barbara today to begin developing your individualized vehicle.

The Range Rover Evoque is perfectly suited for busy urban environments with park assist semi-autonomous parking, a surround camera system, continuous blind-spot monitoring, and reverse traffic detection all available.

Jaguar Land Rover provides grant to expand P.S. ARTS programs in Southern California

2014-04-30T11:46:31+00:00April 30th, 2014|Jaguar, Land Rover|

Santa Barbara Auto Group is proud to be an authorized Jaguar and Land Rover dealer and join with Jaguar Land Rover in supporting the community.

Jaguar Land Rover North America set a corporate goal to fund projects that support education, environment, humanitarian and health, and nuturing talent in order to advance and improve the lives of 12 million people by 2020. The first recipient of a grant from this corporate social responsibility platform was announced to be P.S. ARTS, an education nonprofit located in Southern California. P.S. ARTS plans to use the $130,000 one-year grant to enhance its programming and further extend its reach to children that do not have access to art programs in their school district.

land-rover-santa-barbara-mediaToday, P.S. ARTS provides nationally recognized arts education programs to approximately 15,000 students each week in 40 schools in eight school districts. They bring arts education teachers into the classroom during a traditional day in order to reach underserved children. The southern California nonprofit focuses on providing high-quality education in visual arts, music, and theater for elementary and middle school students. Majority of the students that participate in these programs face challenges outside of school with nearly 75 percent living at or below the poverty level. Additionally, 10 percent have special needs and 55 percent speak English as a second language.

When selecting from the pool of applicants, Jaguar Land Rover North America was impressed with “P.S. ARTS’ efforts to deliver arts and design curriculum and activities which are such an important part of children’s development and enjoyment” shares Joe Eberhardt, President & CEO, Jaguar Land Rover North America. The $130,000 contribution from Jaguar Land Rover will enable P.S. ARTS increase its reach by designing and creating art kits in various art disciplines to be distributed to programs across Southern California.

Coming up on April 25, 2014 Jaguar Land Rover will launch its partnership with P.S. ARTS at the Los Angeles Modernism Opening Night event, a weekend long art and design exhibit held in Culver City. All funds raised by the expected 1,000 patrons will go directly to P.S. ARTS to further develop and implement more programs.

Additionally, Jaguar Land Rover will create opportunities for its employees and dealers to volunteer with P.S. ARTS students. Later this year Jaguar Land Rover will support the annual Express Yourself event held at the Santa Monica Barker hanger where approximately 1,500 visitors and P.S. ARTS students will be guided by professional artists and teachers through an array of exciting projects.

Audi Santa Barbara offers the new 2015 Audi A3 – uncompromising quality

2014-04-29T08:32:09+00:00April 29th, 2014|Audi|

Set to hit showrooms in April 2014, the Audi A3 is already making headlines for it uncompromising features.

The new 2015 Audi A3 is coming to the Audi Santa Barbara showroom this month. Excitement has been building for the debut of this entry-level luxury sedan with a base MSRP of $29,900. The A3 features new and innovative technologies, with the uncompromising craftsmanship that customers know from larger flagship Audi vehicles.

audi-santa-barbara-media-rszWhile budget friendly, this sedan does not cut corners and includes many standard features that others consider luxuries. Audi has joined forces with fearless trailblazers that are also refuse to compromise – entertainers, athletes, and Audi engineers all share the same passion for never cutting corners and refusing to settle for less than the best. The Audi A3 was designed on this very concept of this uncompromising nature.

The ever comical entertainer Ricky Gervais demonstrates the 4G LTE connectivity in the vehicle, which turns the A3 into a WiFi hotspot, in his 30-second TV spot. This allows celebrities and college grads to all stay in touch regardless where they are headed on the road.

The A3 marks the first time that an A-segment vehicle will offer MMI® technology. Celebrity chef and founder of Momofuku Restaurant Group David Chang demonstrates how he utilizes the pioneering MMI® touchpad by using his finger to write a letter to quickly find a contact and make a phone call. The innovative touchpad is incorporated into the rotary MMI control wheel yielding intuitive control for users.

Another luxury standard feature on the 2015 A3 is the Audi drive select option which allows you to change the handling and response at the touch of a button to suit how you want to drive. The five modes of Efficiency, Comfort, Dynamic, Auto, and Individual allow you to change your driving preferences from a more economical driving style, to a relaxing ride, or a sportier experience all while still behind the wheel of your A3.

“The A3 sedan doesn’t sacrifice design, technology, or performance while allowing first time luxury buyers to experience Audi craftsmanship” shares Duane Sanders, General Manager of Santa Barbara Auto Group. “The Audi quattro® all-wheel drive technology hugs corners and will surprise new drivers that this type of advanced technology is being offered on an entry-level luxury sedan.”

Audi Santa Barbara launches the 2015 Audi TT and TTS

2014-04-28T10:59:54+00:00April 28th, 2014|Audi|

The Audi TT and TTS Coupe and Roadster models have quickly become customers favorites with their iconic design and distinctive profile. The powerful performance will continue into the 2015 model year and customers can expect some exciting new additions to this model. At Audi Santa Barbara we are delighted with the new features that have been added to the TT and TTS and are excited for our customers to see the upgrades themselves. New options, new technology, and new interior features are all exciting additions that our customers can expect from these 2015 models.

audi-santa-barbara-media-rszNew Options: The 2015 Audi TTS will offer an optional Competition Package featuring new exterior paint in Imola Yellow or Nimbus Gray and a fixed rear spoiler. The silver finish on the 5-arm-Rotor wheels add a sporty finish to the exterior that is complimented on the interior by Baseball Optic leather seats that are accented by Imola yellow contrast stitching.

The 2015 TT Coupe and Roadster offer the optional S line® plus carbon package which boasts leather interior with S line® embossed on the seat backs and on the steering wheel. Front and rear disc brakes along with 19.5 inch 5-arm-Rotor wheels in black matte finish and S line® sport suspension system are all included in the package. The Roadster also includes black leather-wrapped roll bar covers.

New Technology: The TTS Coupe and TTS Roadster come standard with the Audi magnetic ride where instead of using conventional damper oil the shocks are filled with a special fluid. The viscosity of the fluid is controlled by an electromagnetic field which allows the Audi magnetic ride suspension to deliver the appropriate dampening forces. The ability to operate in normal or sport mode gives the driver the option to choose when they want to enjoy a more agile and sporty driving experience. The rear spoiler is also a technological feat as it adapts to the vehicle’s speed and deploys or retracts when needed or based on command.

Underneath the TT and TTS is an aluminum frame with exceptional stiffness and substantially lower weight which provides better performance, efficiency and handling all thanks to ASF® construction. This is a high-strength aluminum frame structure that uniquely integrates the panels so that they are also load-bearing, yet another technological innovation.

New Interior Features: Known for the iconic classic coupe, bold design and shape, the Audi TT and TTS interior has added luxuries for the 2015 model year. A sporty flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel and driver oriented cockpit allow the driver to feel the power behind the wheel. The 12-way power seats and modern amenities highlight the impeccable craftsmanship that only Audi delivers. The Audi TT now includes standard front heated seats.
