With the i8 hybrid sports car pulled out of the market and the i3 hatchback overlooked by global buyers, BMW has never been a key player in the electrified car arena. Now, they aim to change the status quo with their latest flagship electric SUV, the BMW iX, revealed in its “series production development phase,” meaning it’s still a concept.
If we were to curate the names of cars that are instantly recognized by most people, the Hummer would certainly be in the top rung. It had gone out of the door back in 2010, following the global recession. Through its years, Hummer bore the brunt of many environment protection agencies for being the gas guzzler it was. Now though, it had made quite a comeback in the form of an electric vehicle, as the 2022 GMC Hummer EV.
Back in January, Sony showcased an electric sedan concept named Vision-S. Nobody expected the Vision-S to make it into production back then especially as Sony themselves denied having intentions to become a car manufacturer. But the latest news from Tokyo is proving otherwise. Sony has started testing the Vision-S sedan on public roads, indicating the possibility of the tech giant’s electric sedan finally making it into production.
Lucid Motors, a new maker of luxury EVs set to compete with Tesla, has announced a range of 832 km on a single charge for its forthcoming Lucid Air all-electric sedan, far higher than its rival, the Tesla Model S.
Nissan has just introduced the production version of the all-new Nissan Ariya, an electric crossover SUV that we last saw as a concept on our trip to the Tokyo Motor Show late last year.
Turkey isn’t usually the first country that comes into mind when we talk about cars. But that may change now, with a new manufacturer taking the limelight. TOGG, short for Türkiye’nin Otomobili Girişim Grubu, recently launched a mid-size crossover prototype along with a concept sedan.
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. And this may be the best model to get, because it is the cheapest and you don’t have to explain to your friends why your electric car has a Turbo badge on it.
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.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled the company’s first electric pickup truck at an event in Los Angeles, California. The thing you see in the photo is no joke. Looking like something out of a 1980s sci-fi movie, the Tesla Cybertruck will come in three versions.
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.
