PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning

This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?

PostHeaderIcon Trump Boosts Sales of Corn Ethanol

Ethanol

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he urged the EPA to increase the sales of corn-based ethanol which would allow the year-round sale of E15 gas, which up by 5 percent over the blends that are now being sold in the U.S. Currently, the Clean Air Act restricts the sale of E15 gas during the months of summer. E15 gas is a mix of fuel that contains 85% gas and 15% ethanol.

PostHeaderIcon BMW Confirms the i3 Will Continue to Survive

After all the mumbo jumbo surrounding the i3’s existence, the automaker has finally confirmed that the little electric hatchback will continue to live on. When the i4 was announced at the Paris Motor Show, it looked like a legit replacement for the i3; also because BMW did not address the i3. Now, however, BMW has confirmed that it has got future plans for the i3, according to The Drive.

PostHeaderIcon Holden Bathurst Time Attack Concept

Just when you thought nothing truly exciting could come out in 2018 with the Holden logo on the hood, here’s the Bathurst Time Attack Concept. It was developed as a futuristic race car to mark the 50th anniversary of the company’s first major win at Bathurst.

The R&D department at Holden, in Australia, set about proving that Holden isn’t just a badge GM slaps on the Buick Regal. So they came up with a groundbreaking concept that uses fans that direct airflow in order to improve downforce through each and every corner the car tackles. It’s low, wide, electric and it isn’t real. It’s similar to a Gran Turismo concept car without being one. But we wish they’d make it.

I mean, look at it. Check the tunnels that run on either side of the monocoque, the ginormous diffuser at the back, the rear wing, everything looking like it came from 2040. And it does, in a way, because all the tech that the AVD group crammed in it isn’t all here – yet.

PostHeaderIcon The Mercedes V-12 is Not Long for this World

Mercedes-AMG has confirmed that its V-12 engine is nearing its end, and the V-8s will be the taking over the duties. Mercedes-AMG boss, Tobias Moers, said that the V-12 engines will be retired once the production of the current S65 ends. The V-8s will be the new torch-bearers, thanks to electrification.

PostHeaderIcon New Climate Report Outlines Catastrophe Without Electrification

A new report issued on Monday by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns of a grim future that could materialize as early as 2040 if the world doesn’t cut its output of greenhouse gases massively.

An important element of this seemingly impossible turnover is the swift move towards complete electrification of our means of transport. The report, which was commisioned by the members of the Paris agreement, offers a much more dreary view on the near future of our planet and of our species unless we take action and drastically change our ways at a never-before-seen rate.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Says It Can Cut Tesla’s Charge Times In Half

As the electric car market becomes bigger and more populated these days, Porsche is looking for a way to stand out from competition, and a big part of that approach is developing technologies that will allow it to claim the industry’s quickest charging times. The Porsche Taycan electric sports car — it’s Porsche’s first all-electric model ever — is expected to showcase that with the ability to charge 80 percent of its battery in just 15 minutes.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Reveals E-Tron FE05, Preps for Upcoming Formula E Season

Audi is preparing for what they hope another successful season in Formula E as they enter a new stage of full-on works racing in the top EV series in the world. The first race of the season will take place in Saudi Arabia on December 15th.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Updates Autopilot with “Mad Max” Mode for Assertive Overtaking

Tesla keeps on improving its Autopilot system and the new version is now able to overtake other cars in traffic with the “Navigate with Autopilot” function. It features a “Mad Max” mode for more assured passes.

Tesla cars have been driving themselves around and about for quite a while now, but passing hasn’t been anywhere near second nature for the American EVs. To initiate an overtake when navigating with the Autopilot system turned on, you had to toggle the turn signals yourself. Now, with version 9 of the system being available, this is no longer the case.

PostHeaderIcon Renault K-ZE

Renault is previewing its future mini electric crossover with the K-ZE concept revealed at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Taking a closer look at the K-ZE, it becomes immediately apparent that it is, in fact, just a dressed up Kwid (which Renault already sells in emerging markets) which has had its internal combustion powertrain swapped out for a full-electric one.

The future electric crossover will look much closer to this concept, than it will to the current Kwid, although it will maintain its basic body shape. What will set it apart visually more significantly are the new, redesigned front and rear fascias, as well as various details around the exterior. It also promises to offer “class leading” range for a vehicle in its size-bracket.

PostHeaderIcon Aspark Opens Preorders for Owl EV Hypercar at Paris Motor Show

Osaka-based car manufacturer Aspark exhibited its Owl EV Hypercar at the Paris Motor Show. While the car in the City Of Light was actually only a show model without a propulsion system or even a fully sorted interior, Aspark announced that it is opening preorders for the hypercar. How much do you need to deposit? Try a cool 1 million euros ($1.15 million)! That is just the deposit, mind you. Once the car is ready for delivery by mid-2020, you will have to churn out a few more million, rounding up the price to $3.6 million. Yup, crazy!

PostHeaderIcon New Hyperloop Pod Unveiled, Could Go Into Service Next Year

Meet the world’s first full-scale hyperloop capsule, called Quintero One (quintero in Spanish means “fifth”), a 32-meter/105-foot plane without wings or windows, for lack of a better comparison. It’s expected to be “optimized and ready for passengers” in 2019, and its makers are touting it as possibly the safest form of transportation in the world.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model 3 Sells Like Crazy, Leaves Hyundai, Nissan in the Dust

Despite nagging production issues, the Tesla Model 3 is fast becoming one of America’s best-selling sedans. Monthly and quarterly sales totals in the last three months ending in September revealed that the Model 3 outsold all but four of the top sedans sold in the U.S., regardless of their size and price. In that time span, Tesla sold around 55,800 units of the Model 3, outselling far more established models like the Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Elantra, Ford Fusion, and Chevrolet Malibu. The only four models that outsold the Model 3 are the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, and Honda Accord.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid Announces It’s Ready for Europe at 2018 Paris Motor Show

Toyota hasn’t offered the Camry sedan in Europe for well over 10 years, relying on the Avensis as its top three-box car for the Old Continent. However, at this year’s edition of the Paris motor show, Toyota brought the new eighth-generation model, which it intends on selling here again in the near future.

PostHeaderIcon Citroen C5 Aircross Hyrbid Concept Revealed In Paris

Citroën’s flagship presentation this year at the Paris Motor Show is the pre-production study for the brand’s first plug-in hybrid model. Dubbed the C5 Aircross SUV Hybrid Concept, it will go on sale from 2020. The SUV on display at the show features a special White and Deep Blue color code, with Electric Blue accents.

PostHeaderIcon Best Used 2016 SUV for Fuel Economy

The market trend is quickly shifting from sedans to crossovers and SUVs. However, SUVs have two major cons when compared to their segment counterparts – high retail price and poor fuel economy. Even though they are a practical choice thanks to additional cabin and cargo space, it’s a little difficult for everyone to afford an SUV. So why not go for a used SUV instead? You don’t take the depreciation hit that first owner does, and since SUVs are built to last a lifetime, you can get an almost-new SUV at half the original price.

Now that we’ve planted this seed in your head, let’s have a look at the best used SUVs from 2016 with high fuel efficiency.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Vision RS

Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the Skoda Vision RS shows the path the Czech manufacturer is likely to take for the next generation of its cars. This is a hatchback, sized like a Volkswagen Golf, but sharpened up to the level of a hot-hatch. The Vision RS, a concept car, rolled under the Paris Motor Show lights with a 1.5-liter turbocharged gas engine producing 148 horsepower but assisted with an additional electric motor good for 100 horsepower. As a hybrid, the Vision RS demonstrates Volkswagen’s uncanny ability to craft modern compact cars and transform them into hot hatchbacks – a type of a car the company is definitely versed in (just remember the Golf GTI, the Leon Cupra, the Audi S3, and the Octavia, among others).

PostHeaderIcon The Future of Renault Lies in this KWID-Based Electric Crossover Concept from the Paris Motor Show

Renault premiered the grand stage with an all-electric crossover concept called K-ZE. It will eventually head to the production line and reach the masses next year. The concept looks funky, and the production version may not be very different from the concept. Given the segment Renault has slotted it in, the car will most likely fetch big sales numbers.

PostHeaderIcon Make Way for the i4 – the Fifth Electric Vehicle in BMW’s Stable

BMW is adding yet another all-electric car to its portfolio – the i4. BMW Chairman Harald Krüger has announced at the ongoing Paris Motor Show that the i4 will be launched in 2021. The i4 becomes the fifth vehicle in the lineup, which already includes the BMW i3, 2019 MINI Electric, 2020 iX3, and the iNext.

PostHeaderIcon Elon Musk Accused of Fraud, SEC Sues to Remove Him from Tesla

Elon ‘Controversy’ Musk is in the news yet again. This time, it seems serious. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accused Musk of fraud. What fraud, you ask? The agency says he made a series of “false and misleading” tweets about potentially taking Tesla private last month. They want him fired from Tesla.
