Our Predictions for How Mini John Cooper Works Will Transition to Electrification
As part of the BMW Group, the Mini brand is also slowly moving toward electrification. The British brand is now offering a hybrid version of the Countryman and an all-electric variant of the Cooper (called Mini Electric), but it wants to expand further. Next on the list, according to Mini, is a John Cooper Works model, and the company is already working on concept cars that will preview a high-performance EV.
The 2021 Ram 3500 Can Tow More Than Ever Before
The launch of the TRX is old news now and it looks like Ram has started tweaking the rest of the lineup as well. Last week, the company launched the fourth phase of the ‘Built to Serve’ series trucks, and now it has updated the Heavy-Duty truck for the 2021 model year.
The Ram 3500 HD now boasts of a higher tow rating and a higher peak torque. A few tech features are also introduced, but in terms of aesthetics, it remains the same. Will these improvements help draw more customers to the brand?

2022 Honda Civic Sedan
The Honda Civic has a long history of being one of the most sold compact cars in the world. Now, there is a new one on the way. The car has already been unofficially previewed through a number of leaked patent images and a number of renderings based on them.
The next-generation Honda Civic has been spotted wearing camouflage while being tested on public roads in its sedan version. Moreover, we now know how the prototype looks. Here’s what we can expect from the next-generation Honda Civic.
The Volkswagen ID.4 Will Travel Further Per Charge Than the Ford Mach-E
EPA fuel economy estimates for the new, 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 are in and the German EV is just as efficient as the company claimed it would be. The Environmental Protection Agency says that the ID.4 will be able to travel for up to 250 miles on a single change, which is identical to Volkswagen’s forecast for the U.S. market. This figures places the ID.4 above the Standard Range version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Porsche has already shown a lightly camouflaged version of the new 911 GT3, but it’s still delaying the official unveiling. The presentation car, which we already know it’s painted blue, is being kept in the company’s GT Hall, a big room where several GT3 and GT2 models from the past are being preserved. Chris Harris recently got the chance to visit the hall together with 911 GT3 mastermind Andreas Preuninger and got a glimpse at the uncamouflaged car.
GM Just Showed How Cool the Hummer EV Could Have Been
There’s been so much buzz surrounding the Hummer’s resurgence since the beginning of this year. Right from the Super Bowl advertisements to the delay in launch. Finally, last month, GMC launched the Hummer EV in all its glory. While the talking point was how it went from being a fuel guzzler in its past life to an environment-friendly vehicle, there were some talks about its looks as well. It seems to have a strong road presence, but no one called it a handsome truck exactly.
Now, GM revealed a few sketches of what the Hummer EV could’ve been and we can’t stop banging our heads against the walls. That good? Oh yes!
The Ford Mach-E EV Is NOT A Good Investment
The Ford Mustang Mach-E was introduced with great fanfare back in November 2019 as the company’s first true EV and an all-electric SUV that can match the mighty Mustang on the performance front. It’s been a year since then and deliveries have been postponed to 2021, but that’s not the biggest issue Ford has with the Mach-E. It seems Ford is bracing for poor resale values of the electric crossover, as revealed by a MachEClub forum member who got his hands on the company’s bulletin of lease residual values sent to dealers.
Tesla’s Electric Semi Could Run up to 621 Miles Between Charges
People have major range anxiety when it comes to passenger EVs; so you can imagine how commercial truck operators must feel about electric cargo haulers. Back in 2017, Musk had said that the upcoming commercial Semi would achieve as much as 500 miles of range on a single charge. It seemed almost impossible back then, but battery technology has taken huge strides. Three years later, Tesla is now talking about a 600+ miles range. Does it still seem unbelievable? I don’t think so.
A New Rendering Shows How Much Potential the 2022 Subaru BRZ Really Has
The Subaru BRZ has that sweet cult car status because of the general aura surrounding the Subaru as a car brand. Such popularity is similar to the love other Japanese brands get from the U.S. car-aficionado public - think Toyota or Honda - and whenever these makers drop a new model, the rip curls reaches every corner of the car world and other related areas.

Subaru Clearly Needs to Build a BRZ STI
The second-generation Subaru BRZ has arrived, and it looks like a winner. But just as everyone is celebrating the arrival of the new BRZ, a certain question that was left unanswered with the first-generation model has slowly crept back into the minds of Subaru fans where: are we finally getting the BRZ STI?
We’re no closer to getting the answer we desperately want, but that didn’t stop X-Tomi Design from whetting our appetites with a rendering of what a BRZ STI could look like.
By 2024, Your Porsche 911 Might Not Run On Gasoline Anymore
Earlier in November 2020, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume revealed that the German firm is developing a new synthetic fuel as a strategy to keep its old sports cars on the road. With emission regulations becoming stricter and with most automakers now shifting toward electrification, cars with internal combustion engines may no longer be road-legal in 20 years. Porsche wants to solve this problem with a new synthetic fuel that will replace gasoline in internal combustion cars, reducing CO2 emissions and keeping them on the road longer. While this isn’t exactly news, the fact that Porsche will convert the 911 to this type of fuel in 2024 is!
New Porsche 911 GT3 Caught Testing Next To The Cayman GT4 RS
If you’ve been following us, you know that the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 is no longer a mystery. We spotted the track-prepped 911 on public roads numerous times and recent sightings include an almost camo-free car. We’ve also seen leaked photos with the GT3’s interior, so we’re basically waiting for Porsche to spill the beans and tell us more about what’s under the rear hood. But the Germans are still fine tuning the 911 GT3, which we spotted once again, this time around alongside the cool Cayman GT4 RS.

The Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion is going into production as a premium, all-electric wagon
Back in 2016, Volkswagen launched the first ID concept, signaling the birth of an all-electric sub-brand. Four years later and the German firm introduced the first two ID-badged production models, the ID.3 hatchback and the ID.4 crossover. At least six more electric vehicles are scheduled to hit the roads by 2023 and it seems Volkswagen is also working on a station wagon based on the ID Space Vizzion concept. The latest info coming from Volkswagen says that it will have a range of 700 km (around 435 miles).
The Infiniti QX55 Sure Is a Successor to the All But Forgotten Infiniti FX
Remember the old Infiniti FX, the company’s first attempt at the coupe-styled SUV market? Or maybe you remember it as the QX70 following its name change in 2013? Don’t worry if you don’t, it wasn’t a very remarkable vehicle and it was discontinued in 2017 anyway. But Infiniti just introduced a spiritual successor that looks infinitely better. It’s called the QX55 and yes, it’s a coupe version of the more familiar QX50. And it’s coming to the U.S. in spring 2021 to take on the German competition.
