This Is Probably The Slowest Drag Race You Will Ever See!

A Citroen Ami takes on a scooter, an E-Bike, and two RC cars in some impressively slow quarter-mile races!

Mat Watson from ‘Carwow’ conducted a very different kind of race recently. He didn’t have any fancy cars this time. Instead, he drag-raced a Citroen Ami against a scooter, an e-bike, and two remote control cars. No prizes for guessing which one of these won, but this incredibly fun race will leave you in splits.

The Lucid Air Dream Edition has beaten the Model S’ range by 115 miles to achieve the longest range of any EV ever

Lucid Air came out all guns blazing and looked like the only serious threat to the Tesla Model S in all these years. It countered the Model S like-for-like in most of the features and specs. But, in one spec – that probably matters the most in EVs – it has killed the Tesla. I’m talking about the range. The Lucid Air was officially tested by the EPA and it managed to achieve a rating of 520 miles! This is 114 miles more than the Tesla Model S, which used to be the production car with the best range EV until now.

Tug Of War: New Land Rover Defender vs Two Old Defenders

Tug Of War: New Land Rover Defender vs Two Old Defenders

The new Defender gets into a tug of war against two old Defenders; one of them converted to an EV

Land Rover introduced the new Defender two years ago around this time. While it seemed rugged and strong on paper and turned out to be a rather sweet package, a lot of purists didn’t find the old-school charm in it anymore, which wasn’t wrong. But, how does it compare to its predecessors in terms of pure strength? Mat Watson from Carwow decided to find the answer by pitting it against two yesteryear Land Rover Defenders in a tug of war. While one of them featured a diesel mill, the other was an electrified version. Which SUV do you think has the edge?

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQE

The EQE is offered with a single-motor setup for now, 410 miles of WLTP-rated range, and could have a starting price of around $60,000

Mercedes-Benz was quite active at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show. It came up with five vehicles there, which included the AMG EQS, the EQG Concept, the EQB crossover, and the Maybach EQS SUV. Among this lot was also the EQE, an E-Class-based electric sedan. This baby EQS is loaded to the gills and seems like a sweet package at the onset. The only fly in the ointment is the availability of the single-motor setup, to begin with, but a dual-motor setup EQE and an AMG EQE will arrive in the future.

Mercedes unveiled the EQG Concept, the near-production electric alter-ego of the G-Class SUV, at the 2021 IAA Show and it looks swell

Mercedes went on an electrification spree at the 2021 IAA Mobility Show in Munich, Germany. One of the cars unveiled here was the EQG, the EQ electric equivalent of the legendary G-Class SUV, or more popularly known as the G-Wagen. The off-roader is one of the most iconic models ever built and is still going strong despite its boxy and old-school demeanor. In fact, that is the one thing that’s still attracting purists.

The company showcased the EQG Concept that follows a similar path, but with a lot of new tech. This is said to be a near-production concept, so we can expect the real deal to be revealed by next year, perhaps.

2021 Smart Concept #1

Daimler and Geely have teamed up to reinvent the Smart Brand. Concept #1 is the first of many EVs to come

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.
