Infiniti's Single-Seater Concept Teased with Sleek Lines and a Lot of Attitude

Infiniti’s Single-Seater Concept Teased with Sleek Lines and a Lot of Attitude

Could a future electric, track-spec race car be in Infiniti’s future?

Infiniti’s teasing game of its Pebble Beach-bound concept continues, and the latest tease finally gives us a good look at the car in all its entirety. Not surprisingly, the new concept, called the Prototype 10, looks nothing like the Prototype 9, the retro stylized concept vehicle Infiniti unveiled at last year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Prototype 10 is a modern, maybe even futuristic, interpretation of an electric, track-spec speedster that may or may not end up in production.

Investor Says That Only 1 Percent of China's EV Startups Will Survive

Investor Says That Only 1 Percent of China’s EV Startups Will Survive

This coming from a man who works in a company that’s partly backed by a Chinese EV startup

China may be ground zero for hundreds of startup EV automakers, but that doesn’t mean success is on the horizon for a lot of these companies. That’s the sentiment shared by NIO Capital Managing Partner Ian Zhu, who told Bloomberg that 99 percent of all Chinese startup electric car makers will fail to get off the ground because of a lack of significant investment in the technology.

Saudi Arabia Wants A Bigger Piece of Tesla, But Can it Really Do It in Light Of Elon Musk’s Plans To Turn Tesla Private?

Middle East nation’s investor fund wants to raise its ownership stake in the California-based automaker

Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund has a stake of almost five percent in Tesla, but a new report from Bloomberg claims that the Middle Eastern nation wants to raise its stake by being a part of any investor pool that will be created in response to Elon Musk’s plan to take the electric car maker private. It’s unclear if these plans will gain any traction because the process of taking Tesla private is going to be a difficult task.

2022 Tesla Model S

2022 Tesla Model S

Creating a worthy successor to an EV icon

The Model S is far and away Tesla’s most popular vehicle, known for singlehandedly shifting public opinion of EVs from dowdy, boring people-movers, to sexy, high-tech performance machines. This is the model that set the stage for all of Tesla’s other offerings, including the top-shelf Model X SUV, and more recently, the affordable Model 3 compact four-door. However, the Model S was first introduced in 2012, which means it’s starting to get a little long in the tooth, and a second-gen for the full-/mid-size luxury sedan should be headed down the line in the next few years. As such, we put on our speculation hats and got down to reasoning out what the next Model S might bring to the table.

For Every Kilometer Driving Downhill The E-Tron Recuperates Enough Energy To Gain One Kilometer Of Range

We have been waiting for Audi to reveal the new e-Tron Quattro for what seems like a millennium.

In short, I am talking about the Tesla Model X and the Jaguar I-Pace. With the announcement of the reveal date, Audi also revealed additional information about their new car confirming it will be fast, advanced, and quite efficient.

Mercedes Teases a New Retro Electric Concept for Pebble Beach

Could this be the future of Mercedes’ EQ brand?

We already know that Mercedes-Benz is bringing a new show car to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. We also know that it’s called the Aesthetics Progressive Luxury Concept and its in-house name — Electric Silver Arrow — suggests that it’s connected to the automaker’s newly created EQ electric brand. Everything else, though, is still a mystery, and Merc’s latest teaser of the car doesn’t show anything revealing other than confirming speculation that the concept will be heavily based on Mercedes’ 1930’s racing design.

Pebble Beach to be Graced by Infiniti Electrified Performance Concept

Pebble Beach to be Graced by Infiniti Electrified Performance Concept

Another year, another interesting Pebble Beach-bound concept from Nissan’s luxury brand

The 2018 Pebble Concours d’Elegance is playing host to a number of extraordinary concepts, including one from Infiniti that’s being billed as an electric vehicle concept. The description doesn’t do justice to the accompanying teaser image, which shows the concept’s cabin taken from a birds-eye-view perspective. The teaser doesn’t reveal too much, but it does show enough for us to assume that the concept could have some loose connection to the Prototype 9 Concept that Infiniti showcased last year at Pebble Beach.

Next-Gen Tesla Model S Rendering has us Hopeful for the Future!

Next-Gen Tesla Model S Rendering has us Hopeful for the Future!

Sign us up if this is what the next-generation Tesla Model S looks like

The Tesla Model S has been around since 2012, and while it’s still a few years away from getting a full redesign, a rendering of a next-gen Model S is already making rounds on the Internet. It looks exactly like what we hope the next-gen Model S looks like. Designed by Emre Husmen, the new Model S rendering is far more aggressive and dynamic than the current model that’s on the market today. More importantly, it doesn’t deviate too far away from the current Model S to the point that it becomes unrecognizable. It’s still the Tesla Model S, albeit rendered to look sharper and edgier than what we have now. In other words, it looks fantastic.
