2021 Toyota GR Super Sport

2021 Toyota GR Super Sport

Toyota is flexing its hyper-performance muscle hard with help from Gazoo Racing

2020 didn’t suck entirely for the car world, and other than the usual suspects, we were teased with a handful of upcoming hypercars. For example, Toyota took to Le Mans to unveil its first-ever hypercar in front of the public.

While unveil is a big word, really - we only saw a heavy-camouflaged prototype lapping the Circuit de la Sarthe track, the presentation came with a couple of specs and numbers. Until Toyota decides to fully loosen its lips on the topic, here’s all we know so far about the GR Super Sport hypercar.

The BMW X2 Is Getting Bigger, Will Share DNA With the iX2 EV

The BMW X2 Is Getting Bigger, Will Share DNA With the iX2 EV

It will feature fresh design cues, whereas the iX2 could be the rival that Tesla Model Y needs

The X2 was introduced in 2018 and is the youngest of the German SUV lot. It was introduced to fill the vacuum between the X1 and the X3. Given how the market is shrinking and automakers are trying to capitalize on every possible opportunity, the X2 made sense. In its essence, it came in a package slightly smaller than the X3 but with more features and better specs than the X1. However, according to Autobild.de, BMW is giving the X2 bigger dimensions for the 2023 model. Do we really need it?

Everything We Know About the $25,000 Tesla EV

Everything We Know About the $25,000 Tesla EV

The cheapest Tesla will be skimped on features when compared to the other models

It wouldn’t be wrong to say what the EV market is what it is today because of Tesla. The Musk-led company has revolutionized this segment in the last decade or so. The company has got four mass-market, mainstream cars at the moment – the Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and the Model X – and others like the Cybertruck and the Roadster that are yet to arrive or are niche products.

While the S3XY range is doing very well in the market, neither of them can be called ‘affordable’ cars. In the past, Musk had made it clear that Tesla won’t be making any cheap cars, but at the Tesla Battery Day last year, he set a cat amongst the pigeons when he said that the company will build a $25,000 car. It became the talk of the town even though not much is known about it. But, here’s everything you need to know about this affordable Tesla EV.

Before we get going, do note that there is no concrete information about the $25,000 EV and most of the things are mere speculations based on the few details we already know. So, take it with a pinch of salt.

Alpine Becomes An EV Brand And Something Even Bigger Is Brewing

Alpine Becomes An EV Brand And Something Even Bigger Is Brewing

Alpine and Lotus join forces to create all-electric successor for the cool A110

Rumors claiming that Renault will turn Alpine into an all-electric brand have been confirmed today. The French automaker announced that the marque most famous for the A110 sports will focus on EV vehicles for the future. Renault also released a teaser image that previews three upcoming Alpine models, a small hatchback, a compact crossover, and a brand-new sports car. All are connected to charging stations, so all three will feature battery-powered electric motors. But the French also announced that the sports car will be co-developed with Lotus.

2022 Mercedes AMG SL63

The next AMG SL63 promises some great changes. Here’s what they are

The next-generation Mercedes AMG SL63 has repeatedly been spotted out testing. The car is slowly being unveiled, as now it has even less camouflage than before. Compared to models like the SLS AMG and its successor, the AMG GT, it was always a bit on the softer side in terms of the overall driver characteristics. However, things might change with this new generation, as it is the first SL, developed by AMG. What will this mean for the SL’s current target group?

Honda Will Electrify Its Entire Euro Lineup in 2022 - Here's What That Means For The Civic Type R

Honda Will Electrify Its Entire Euro Lineup in 2022 - Here’s What That Means For The Civic Type R

The Mk11 Civic-based Type R will be the last one to rely on fossil fuel alone

That car the industry is slowly but steadily shifting to electrified powertrains is not a novel trend anymore. Almost every echelon, from the budget-friendly sub-compact to the alien-looking supercar is getting either a hybrid or an out-and-out EV these days.

Honda, for example, wants to field a fully electrified lineup - made of hybrids and EVs - by 2022 in Europe, as emissions standards are becoming more and more strict. This, however, won’t affect the incoming Civic Type R, which is good. For now. At the same time, the new Type R might become the last Honda to feature a pure-gasoline powertrain.

MG’s New Supermini EV Could Give the Honda E and Mini Electric Some Troubling Competition

This new British electric hatch has the potential to knock the competition out cold if MG plays its cards right

Ferrari is reportedly working on two all-electric SUVs. The first one could arrive in 2024

McLaren Stands Firm On SUV Philosophy But Sees Hybrid Technology As A Necessity

McLaren Stands Firm On SUV Philosophy But Sees Hybrid Technology As A Necessity

It’s hard not to like McLaren’s verticality in front of the financial temptation of making an SUV

It’s true that the addition of one or more SUVs/crossovers to their lineups has saved a handful of carmakers. Porsche is the best example here, as it can still make the wonderful 911 due to the likes of Cayenne and Macan. For others, SUVs just boosted sales to new heights. Lamborghini is the best example here, as it now sells as many Urus SUVs as it does Huracans and Aventadors combined.

The QX55 is a no non-sense vehicle that is essentially the SUV coupe version of the QX50

Back in November, Infiniti launched a new vehicle called the QX55. The QX55 is not out there just to compete with its German counterparts; it also carries the weight of serving as the successor of the flop QX70 and also the automaker’s first SUV coupe offering in the market.

Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford F-150 Electric

For starters, it’s coming in 2022, if we’re lucky

It’s been a while since FoMoCo’s train-pulling PR stunt came to further hype the arrival of the all-electric Ford F-150. As Ford has been rather tight-lipped lately about its full-electric pickup truck, we thought we’d have a look at what we know up until this point and what we should expect expect from the electric F-150. Here’s what we can report for the time being.

One year from its arrival, the Cybertruck is still a hot discussion topic

Those of you that are familiar with Frank Stephenson’s ever-growing YouTube channel know the former designer’s blunt, straight-to-the-fact manner of giving the verdict on a particular design. Only this time around, he dissects the Tesla Cybertruck, one of the most polarizing cars to reach the public’s eye in recent times.

The Cybertruck was unveiled more than a year ago and in typical Musk fashion, it shook the internet then split it in two: those that loved the edgy pickup and those that loathed it. Care to know Franks’s Stephenson’s opinion?

Is this what the future looks like for Acura? Because we like what we’re seeing

Acura wasn’t short on marketing praise for the 2022 MDX. According to carmaker, the new MDX is the "most premium, performance-focused and technologically sophisticated SUV in Acura history."
