Audi E-Tron Models are Now Cheaper and the SUV Has More Range, But It's Still Not Good Enough

Audi E-Tron Models are Now Cheaper and the SUV Has More Range, But It’s Still Not Good Enough

Audi is trying to make the E-Tron SUV and Sportback Worth Buying, But I Still Can’t Get Onboard.

The Audi E-Tron SUV and Sportback are fairly amazing vehicles. I love the fact that they are electric but still look like a modern-day car without all the funky futuristic crap that some automakers try to put in there. The way I see it, both are – for the most part – perfect transitional vehicles. They have lots of technology but don’t go overboard. They provide decent performance and comfort, two things you’d expect from Audi. But, they aren’t without their flaws, and the two biggest – pricing and range – are finally starting to be addressed. Both models will get a big drop in pricing, and the E-Tron SUV will see a slight jump in range, but I’m sad to say that it’s still not enough.

This Tesla Model 3 Just Proved How Versatile Electric Cars Are, Even in Water

This Tesla Model 3 Just Proved How Versatile Electric Cars Are, Even in Water

EVs are better swimmers than fuel-powered cars, but they are no Michael Phelps!

Unless your internal combustion engine car is rated for a healthy wading depth, taking it into the waters is the worst idea. These fuel-powered mills are susceptible to hydrolocks that could seize the engine in the worst-case scenario. But, is it the same with EVs? Not really. Electric vehicles don’t have an ICE, so they are not prone to hydrolocks, and this Tesla right here proves it.

As you can see in the video, this Tesla Model 3 floated and swam across to the other side in what appears to be rather deep waters for a sedan. This right here goes on to prove how versatile EVs are.

EV West Aims For New Electric Speed Record With a Tesla-Powered Lakester

EV West Aims For New Electric Speed Record With a Tesla-Powered Lakester

There are high chances that we may have a new record holder this time

Although the infiltration into the market will take time, I think it’s high time all of us accepted that EVs are no more a ‘niche’. It’s not just the automakers that are investing in electrification; even aftermarket companies have realized that this is the future and they are adapting to the new ‘electrified’ culture. One such company, EV West, has taken this up a notch by using its technical knowhow to break the land speed record for an electric vehicle. Can it break the record set 23 years back?

This Full Video Review of the Volkswagen ID 3 Is Brutally Honest

This Full Video Review of the Volkswagen ID 3 Is Brutally Honest

Volkswagen has a lot of hopes pinned on this car, but some things might drive you away from it!

The ID.3 is a very important car for Volkswagen. The company is aiming to capture a strong market share in the EV segment with this product, and even pitting it against the likes of the Tesla Model 3. The ID.3 looks futuristic and is pretty spacious on the inside. And, it even comes with a host of new tech features. But, it is as good in real-world conditions as it sounds on paper? German YouTube channel Autogefühl has a brutally honest review on this new EV for us.

Is Ram Working On An Electric 1500 Pickup Truck?

Is Ram Working On An Electric 1500 Pickup Truck?

Ram Is Open to Building an Electric Pickup, But Only Under Certain Circumstances

Ram has finally broken the silence on its electrification strategy. At a time when electrification is taking over the pickup truck segment by storm, Ram had been awfully quiet on this subject. There are a lot of new automakers in this segment who are looking to take on the Big Three players with electric pickup trucks. Ford and Chevy are also working on them, but what about Ram?

We didn’t know so far, but now we do. Ram has said that it is very much in the game, but has “different view of timing and adoption rates”. Is this a smart move or will Ram pay for being a late entrant to the market?

The Cybertruck is Riskier for Tesla and Elon Musk Than You Realize

The Cybertruck is Riskier for Tesla and Elon Musk Than You Realize

The Tesla Cybertruck Is The Definition of Taking a Chance

What more can we say about the Tesla Cybertruck that hasn’t already been said? It’s awesome, it’s ugly, it’s interesting, it will work, it won’t work – we’ve said and heard it all. But, there’s something that you haven’t heard quite yet, and that’s the cold hard fact that neither Tesla nor Elon Musk did any market research before designing and developing the Cybertruck. This is about as risky as it gets for an automaker, and it’s probably a big reason why models like the Mercedes X-Class just couldn’t cut the mustard.

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.

If Every Car In The U.S. Was Electric, We'd Be Beyond Screwed

If Every Car In The U.S. Was Electric, We’d Be Beyond Screwed

The U.S. Power Grid Is Nowhere Near Ready for Mass-Scale EV Acceptance - Not By a Long Shot

The future of automobiles is electric. Eventually, the internal combustion engine will die off. Eventually, battery technology will be so good, and range anxiety won’t exist. These are phrases that we hear from automakers and governmental agencies on a fairly regular basis as automakers continue to transition their lineups deeper into electrification, and electric car companies like Tesla and Rivian start to take their own little piece of the pie. But, there’s something that is rarely thought about – can the U.S. power grid that we largely take for granted actually handle wide-spread EV usage? As it turns out, we’re nowhere ready for the all-electric future that we hear about so often, and a new study by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is the proof.

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?

GMC’s Latest Teaser Video Gives Us a Decent Look at the Hummer EV

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.

BMW to Take the Tesla Model S Head-On With the 5 Series EV, But Will It Have What It Takes?

BMW to Take the Tesla Model S Head-On With the 5 Series EV, But Will It Have What It Takes?

The all-electric BMW 5 Series will probably borrow technology from the iX3

BMW recently unveiled the iX3, an all-electric version of the X3 crossover. The iX3 joined the i3 to form the company’s small, two-vehicle EV lineup, but BMW just announced plans to expand more into zero-emission territory. The i4 and the iNext are already underway for 2021, but BMW also plans to roll out electric versions of the 5 Series, 7 Series, and X1. The 5 Series is particularly important here, as it will go against the Tesla Model S.
