Here’s that dose of epinephrine that your car needs to be pumped into the batteries

Charging electric cars is a major concern for EV owners. In fact, it is one of the aspects that affect the decision-making process of any prospective buyer as well.

In Case You Forgot Volkswagen Was Shady, It’s Now Under Fire For Illegally Selling Pre-Production Cars as Used Cars

They didn’t meet U.S. or European Regulations and VW’s CEO Herbert Diess Was Reportedly Aware

The way things are going, Volkswagen should be renamed as Volkscandal. Instead of focusing on rebuilding the “Volks’" trust after the Dieselgate fiasco, the German automaker continues to roll on the same saga. This time, the company has sold Pre-production prototypes that didn’t meet regulatory approval in the U.S. and Europe. Dear VW, why would you want to continue working unethically despite being one of the world’s largest carmakers?

Sometimes being siblings is better than being identical twins

Following in the footsteps of Audi and Mercedes, BMW has adopted the ‘Russian Doll’ design; wherein every product basically looks the same. It feels like the cars have taken the ‘twinning’ concept way too seriously. For instance, it is hard to differentiate between the Audi A4, A6, and A8 if not for their lengths. And, this design approach is getting more and more common for brands. Maybe they use it as a ‘brand recall’ strategy, but it is getting out of hand.

1949 Lincoln Mercury Coupe EV by ICON

A classic, sleeper car with an EV powertrain

We see a lot of restomods where people or companies thump new engines into classic cars. But how about putting an electric powertrain into a vintage car? This is not a new concept; in fact, there are quite a few companies who have been working on this for quite some time now. The conversion companies were in a large number even in the last century, and a perfect testament for this would be the formation of the Electric Auto Association back in 1967. However, this takes a lot of skill, money, and precise execution.

2018 Dodge Charger Evolution

2018 Dodge Charger Evolution

The very same ”I’ll kill you if you touch me” attitude from the ‘70s with a powerful engine

Wisconsin-based Speedkore is the same performance company that built an absurd 1,650-horsepower Dodge a few years back. It was seen in the Fast and Furious movie as well.

Speedkore claims that the Evolution represents “the most advanced 1970 Dodge Charger” anywhere on the globe, which may actually be true. Speedkore is known to play with carbon fiber and has used its skills on this beast as well. Despite the heavy engines and strong body, the company has built a muscle car that weighs just about 3,200 pounds - that’s anywhere between 228- and 638-pounds lighter than the original 1970 Dodge Charger!
