Sony Vision-S electric car testing on Tokyo streets

Back in January, Sony showcased an electric sedan concept named Vision-S.

2020 Toyota Highlander debuts in UAE and KSA as hybrid-only model

Toyota’s SUV line-up in the GCC is already crowded, with every niche filled with a model or two, mostly with offerings built in the Far East.

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.
