Hummer electric truck coming under GMC brand

General Motors is bringing back the Hummer, except it will now be under the GMC brand — and it will be fully electric. The carmaker seems intent to shed the image of the former standalone 4×4 brand as a planet-killer, and it’s a rather genius marketing move rather than just calling it a Camaro Volt-E or something.

Sony Vision-S Concept shows any tech company could build an electric car

Sony has always been a familiar brand for all of us. Be it the Walkman, Bravia TVs, Playstations, (former) Vaio laptops or their mobile phones, most of us have had a taste of what the tech giant is capable of at some point in their life. But, as the automotive industry is growing towards a certain electric future, the car is turning into more of a gadget than a mechanical powerhouse.

2021 Fisker Ocean brings back a near-dead electric-car brand

Fisker was once a brand that showed the potential to be a trendsetter for electric cars, yet it vanished from the arena, bankrupt. The Fisker Karma was even sold here, and within a year, it was taken off showroom floors, and former owners suggest that remaining stock was used for spare parts. But getting their hands burnt in the EV segment has not seemed to repel Fisker from giving it another shot. Henrik Fisker had tweeted the first teaser of a new electric crossover more than a year ago and now, after a slew of speculations, it is here.

With the launch of the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, it was clear that Porsche is adopting a top-down approach for the launch of its electric sedan. So the lower models were expected to pop up soon after the launch. And Porsche did not disappoint. Here is the 2020 Porsche Taycan 4S.

Ford Mustang Mach-E -- right car with wrong name?

Ford Mustang Mach-E — right car with wrong name?

Using legendary monikers to sell new models is not a new strategy. A lot of manufacturers have been letting their new offerings ride this wave of nostalgia. But this can sometimes end up being quite controversial, depending on the model they slap their name onto. You saw it happening when Mitsubishi revived the Eclipse name on a crossover and when Chevy slapped the Blazer name on yet another crossover. And now, Ford has taken it to an all-new level by launching the Ford Mustang Mach-E, an electric crossover.

Nissan Leaf has been one of the vehicles that pioneered the electric car mass market. Launched almost a decade ago, the Leaf has been synonymous with affordable electric mobility, in the same vein as the Toyota Prius has been to hybrids. But the Leaf was considered to be uninspiring to drive, despite being futuristic. Now though, Nissan lifted the covers off a different version of Leaf, which is nothing like the existing ones.

First drive: 2019 Nissan Note e-Power in Japan

In all the faff over Tesla this and Tesla that, most people idolising it tend to forget that a fully electric car is absolutely useless for the majority of people who live in apartments, which is why we’ve never shown any enthusiasm for EVs. But what if you could get the benefits of an electric car without the hassle of plugging one up to a faraway public charging station for an hour? That’s where the Nissan Note e-Power comes in, and it has become the top-selling car in apartment-heavy Japan.
