2021 Nissan Ariya

Nissan flexes its EV muscle harder with the 2021 Ariya all-electric crossover

In the wake of the success it had with the LEAF EV, Nissan is extending its ambitions in the crossover segment with the futuristic-looking Ariya, an all-electric crossover based on the Ariya prototype shown in 2019 in Tokyo.

As you’d expect, the styling cues flaunted by that Ariya - inside and outside - have a clear correspondent in Japanese tradition. The Ariya is available in 2WD and 4WD guise. Customers can also pick from one of the two available battery packs. We’ll get into more detail below.

Is Volvo's Polestar Division Working On An Electric Version of the Iconic P1800?

Is Volvo’s Polestar Division Working On An Electric Version of the Iconic P1800?

New Spy Shots Suggest That Volvo is Preparing Something Special for the P1800’s 60th Anniversary

Polestar went through a drastic transformation in recent years. Once a small shop that built mildly hotter versions of existing Volvo models, Polestar is now a full-blown performance division that creates unique designs. Its production car lineup includes the Polestar 1 and 2, both electrified, and it seems that the brand is already working on something. But based on the spy shots we received, it’s not a brand-new model. It seems that Polestar is testing an electric version of the iconic P1800, a car that Volvo built back in the 1960s.

This 2021 Ford Bronco Police Interceptor Is Ready to Protect and Serve You Off-Road

It’s quite intriguing that the Bronco Sport fits into the police uniform so effortlessly!

The Bronco is a capable off-roader and there’s no doubt about it. Even its little sibling, the Bronco Sport, seems like an all-rounder that can take the tarmac and the beaten paths equally well. We’ve seen it as a Raptor, as a Baja 1000 racer, but this time, we’ve come across an intriguing rendering. How cool would a Bronco be in a cop uniform? Aksyonov Nikita has rendered the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport as a Police Interceptor and it looks fantastic!

The 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Really Could Be the Dominate Compact Sports Sedan

The 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Really Could Be the Dominate Compact Sports Sedan

With 355 Horsepower, the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Will Be a Strong Competitor

When Acura revealed the2021 TLX luxury sports sedan, we came right out and said that BMW and Mercedes should worry about it. In fact, you could even argue that Cadillac and Audi should worry too, despite the fact that the former is abandoning fuel-driven performance for a new naming structure and all-electric future. Well, Acura has added even more evidence that certain brands should worry with news that the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S will feature a pure-driven V-6 heart that’s good for 355 horsepower. Even better yet, we’ll see a near-production prototype in special livery serve as a pace car at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on August 30, 2020!

Prediction: Aston Martin Cars Will Get More Expensive Post Pandemic

Prediction: Aston Martin Cars Will Get More Expensive Post Pandemic

When Brand’s Like Aston Martin Start Saying Exclusivity, They Usually See Dollar Signs Too

At this point, even those living under the most obscure rock know that almost every automotive company – aside from Tesla it seems – took a major hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Aston Martin was on the bad side of that too, with sales down some 64-percent in the first half of 2020 and a total revenue of just £146 million. The company’s plan to bounce back includes “rebalancing supply to demand” and reducing production of key sports car lines to focus more on the DBX SUV. Part of this profitability increase means cutting 500 jobs, but I also see a hidden message that says “give us more money.” Let me explain.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

The Bronco Sport is an urban crossover that can also go on beaten paths with utmost ease

The Bronco’s revival has made enthusiasts and purists more than happy. But, given how tough the market has become, Ford knew that it would also need a practical vehicle. In comes the Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport is not as rugged as the standard Bronco and can be very much used as a daily driver as well. If I had to describe it in a sentence, I’d say it’s not an off-roader like the Bronco, but a crossover with a very heavy off-road bias. It has a lot of Bronco shades and vibe all around, but will people accept it as an urban crossover and as their daily driver?

Cadillac Needs to Nail the LYRIQ If It’s Going to be Even Remotely Successful

If Cadillac Doesn’t Get the LYRIQ Right, The Company Might Not Last Much Longer

Outside of the Chevy Bolt, GM doesn’t really have any electric vehicles. The Bolt was a huge step forward with its 259 miles of range on a good day, but GM is definitely falling behind, and that’s why Cadillac is set to “spearhead GM’s shift to an all-electric future.” The LYRIQ that has been teased here is the first of many to come and will be powered by GM’s Ultimum batteries. It will also ride on the same next-gen battery-electric architecture that will underpin most Cadillac and Chevy EVs going forward. We’ll get our first full look at it on August 6th, but what exactly can we expect?

The trailer also gave us a glimpse of the supertruck’s silhouette

Apart from the Bronco, there was another nameplate set to make a return this year – the Hummer. GMC even played out commercials at the Superbowl announcing a 20 May 2020 debut, but that didn’t happen due to the pandemic. Now, the company has announced that the Hummer will debut later this fall. The production of the electric super truck will begin in the fall of 2021.

Audi Sport Is Banking on Emotional Electrified Performance

Audi Sport Will Soon Phase Out Purely ICE-Powered RS Models as Electrification Becomes the Norm

As automakers shift deeper into electrification, the option of having a pure, unelectrified combustion engine is slowly fading away. The latest automaker to make this more than evident is Audi or, to be more specific, Audi Sport – the group within Audi that’s responsible for all the high-performance RS models that we all love. Audi marketing Boss Rolf Michl expanded on this in an interview with Autocar, exposing Audi Sport’s intention of limiting drivetrain options in the future for all RS models.
