This Model T and its Siblings Are Built By the Same Company Behind the Apple iPhone
Cars are getting more and more advanced every year, leaving them more dependent on electronics and technology. With this increasingly blurry line dividing the world of technology like laptops and smartphones and the world of cars, more tech companies are having a go at making their first automobiles. Hon Hai Technology Group, the owner of Foxconn, debuted three new electric vehicles at the Hon Hai Tech Day 2021 event. Those electric vehicles are the Model C, Model E, and the ambitiously named Model T.
2022 Mazda CX-3 Super Edgy
Back in May 2021, Mazda announced that after the 2021 model year, the CX-3 and Mazda 6 will be discontinued. But, while the American market will only enjoy the CX-30 for now, in Japan the CX-3 is still big and is enjoying a lot of success. In fact, for the 2022 model year, the Japanese version of the CX-3 will see the addition of a new model to the lineup: the CX-3 Super Edgy.
Prices will range from ¥2,491,500 (about $21,800 at the current exchange rates) for the 15S Super Edgy version to ¥3,212,000 ($28,000) for the XD Super Edgy.

A Brave Statement: Mazda Will Destroy Its Luxury Competitors By 2023
A while back, we talked about how Mazda is in the process of reinventing itself. The Japanese carmaker shared, on its official newsroom that three new SUV models are coming out by 2023 and that the expansion of its lineup will be accompanied by upgraded dealer facilities.

8 Amazing Things about the Polestar 2
Once Volvo’s version of the AMG, Polestar has made a name for itself as the new EV division for Volvo. The first Polestar showed the market what a sports EV sedan should look like, and the new one is not any different. It has the proportions of a sedan but the ride height of a crossover, much like Forester stance save for the rear estate body. At $47,200, it’s cheap (for an EV) and a clean-cut looker, but the latest iteration of the Polestar is not just a pretty-faced environmental ambassador.
Fork in the Road: Alfa Romeo’s Make It Or Break It Moment
At some point, you almost have to feel bad for Alfa Romeo. Despite having some pretty cool cars, a blend of bad decisions and a tainted perception of reliability has put the brand in a position where it would almost make more sense to kill it than try to bring it back to profitability. Fortunately, the brand isn’t done just yet, and a heap of new models between now and 2026 could be exactly what the company needs to bounce back. Still, at the same time, one can’t help but wonder: Is this the beginning of the end for Alfa Romeo?
General Motors Has Invested HUGE in the Future of EV Production
"Drift Mode" Is Already More Overplayed Than the Macarena
When Ford launched the Focus RS with its famed, albeit accidentally created drift mode, it was a very cool marketing gimmick. There’s not a lot of use for such a thing for most folks, but it’s cool to say you have the functionality. What we didn’t know at the time, however, was that Ford’s happy little accident sparked a whole new trend, and that trend is already starting to get ridiculous.
Genesis Drops the 2022 GV60 With Loads of Tech and Luxury
This Failed Moose Test Confirms That The Ford Mach-E Is Actually A Mustang!
For the longest time, I’ve refused to acknowledge the Mach-E to have the Mustang spirit. But, it looks like I’ll have to change that now. The Mach-E just gave us solid proof that it has the Mustang DNA by failing a moose test that its rivals passed without breaking a sweat. The Mach-E swayed across and fishtailed its way into the cones at the first turn. The original Mustang must be smiling with tears in its eyes looking at the Mach-E.
The Gas-Powered Macan Won’t Survive Beyond Its 10th Birthday
We’ve come a long way from the original idea that the 2021 Porsche Macan would only be offered with an all-electric powertrain. That was the story in 2019, which quickly turned into word that the next-gen Macan would be all-electric but would be sold alongside the current Macan– something we called “Porsche’s dual-Macan strategy.” Now, it seems there’s even more to the story, and you might not like what you’re about to read.

2022 Toyota Corolla Cross
Until recently the name "Corolla" made you think about Toyota’s compact sedan that is giving the Honda Civic a lot of headaches. Well, as of June, 2021 Toyota added a new version to the Corolla lineup: a compact crossover that will go after cars like Kia Seltos or Subaru Crosstrek.
The 2022 Corolla Cross will go on sale in October, 2021 and prices will range from $22,195 to $27,625, depending on the trim level and driveline.

2021 Smart Concept #1
Smart is one of those obscure automotive names that you don’t really pay much attention to. They are mostly known for their ForTwo model, which isn’t really worth mentioning, or the fun Smart Roadster, which could have been a great car if it wasn’t for the atrocious automated manual gearbox. Now, however, there might actually be a valid reason to talk about Smart, as they’ve introduced a funky sub-compact crossover at the IAA Munich auto show, called Concept #1.

Mercedes-Benz Goes On A Reveal Spree In Munich To Maintain The EV EQ-uilibrium
Mercedes went on an EQ-spree at the 2021 IAA Show. The company unveiled the 2022 EQS, the EQE – a mini EQS in its essence, the EQB – a crossover that could get volume for the company, and arguably the highlight of the show, the EQG off-road SUV.

The 2022 MX30 is Mazda’s First EV, But it Only Packs 124 Miles of Range
Mazda’s North American division is looking for a means to entice buyers to purchase their very first all-electric car, the MX-30 crossover. It also contains an unusual proposition for potential customers. The MX-30, which goes on sale in California in October, is far pricier than you’d imagine, considering the range and rather modest size of this EV Crossover’s battery pack.
Ford’s Persistence On Pushing The Mach-E As A Mustang Continues Via This Appearance Package
Ford introduced a new Ice White Edition Appearance Package for the Mustang. Well, since the Mach-E is also a Mustang, that gets it too. Ford has not announced if it’s a limited package or not, and neither has it announced the price. The cars equipped with these packages will arrive at the dealerships in 2022.
Genesis GV60 - A Luxurious And Plusher Equivalent Of The Hyundai Ioniq 5 And The Kia EV6
Genesis has forayed into the crossover EV segment with the new GV60. This isn’t the first electric Genesis, as the company has previously unveiled the G80e and we’ve even spotted the electric version of the GV70 called the GV70e. The GV60 is the Genesis equivalent of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6. Considering Genesis is the South Korean group’s luxurious division, the GV70 will also be more premium and plusher than its cousins. So, does that mean we’ll have a Tesla Model Y and Ford Mustang Mach-E rivaling product with a heftier price tag?
