BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla

BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla

More like a warning shot wrapped as a prediction of sorts

Tesla can be credited for igniting this full-on electric car movement we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of years, with Dieselgate acting as a catalyzer for Volkswagen AG but also for other German brands, BMW included.

Well-established carmakers have been on a spending spree trying to develop electric powertrains and EVs and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse believes they will soon catch up with Tesla and even get ahead of it.

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

It looks spectacular, is feature-rich, and comes with an electric-only range of 80 miles

Karma Automotive is back in the news, this time for the introduction of its latest vehicle called the GS-6. The GS-6 is essentially the Revero GT that the company revealed in the past, but with few significant changes. Karma plans to use the Revero moniker for a future, upmarket product.

Anyway, the GS-6 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that debuts in the “new luxury” segment; a term coined by Karma to perhaps create a new niche. The GS-6 is not priced as exorbitantly high as the previous products and starts under $100,000.

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

A beautiful all-electric four-door coupé that’ll take Audi one step above

Update 2-9-2021: Audi has finally revealed the E-Tron GT and RS E-Tron GT. While we update this review with all the finer details, check out the important information and new images below!

Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.

Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

The German automaker’s entry-level electric vehicle comes with a single-motor setup and a range of around 300 miles

After launching the rather expensive EQC, Mercedes has now come up with a slightly more affordable EV that could be a game-changer for the brand. Called the EQA, it is essentially a GLA that comes with some cosmetic changes and of course, a heart transplant. Interestingly, Mercedes has used a different approach for this car.

The EQA isn’t a wild-looking electric vehicle with radical styling cues and neither is it a rocket off the line, which seems to be the norm in the segment. Not everyone likes to take off the moment you press the A-pedal, after all. So, if the quick, push-you-back-in-the-seat cars are not your thing, here’s a refreshing electric vehicle that will make you smile and let you drive it calmly.

2020 Citroen Ami

The Citroen Ami returns after 42 years as an all-electric quadricycle, and it’s kinda cute

The 2020 Citroen Ami is an all-electric vehicle based on the Ami One concept that the French company unveiled in 2019. Only 95 inches long and 55 inches wide, the Ami is in fact an elecric quadricycle rather than a full-blown car and it can be driven without a driver’s license.

This makes it accessible to people as young as 16 in most European countries (and 14 in France). Developed as a solution for city commuting over relatively short distances, the Ami is named after the original Citroen Ami, an economy car that the French firm produced from 1961 to 1978. What’s it all about and should you buy one? Find out in our review below.

2021 Cupra el-Born

Cupra’s first EV is essentially a VW ID.3 with a different shirt

The SEAT brand we know now is very different from the SEAT we knew a decade ago. The wind of transformation has been blowing over the Volkswagen Group-owned carmaker lately and SEAT has been enjoying a new life thanks to a revised lineup brimming with good-looking cars.

In the process, the Cupra nameplate - used to designate the sportiest models of the SEAT bunch - evolved into a standalone brand and without wasting any time, it has come up with an electric car, albeit with a little help from the VW ID.3. Let’s check out the Cupra el-Born EV.

2021 NIO ET7 EV

This Tesla Model S-rivalling sedan looks stunning, is feature-rich, and offers 621 miles of range!

In the first quarter of 2020, Chinese EV automaker Nio had almost gotten knocked out of the auto scene.

2021 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid

The refreshed Bentayga Hybrid follows Bentley’s new design philosophy and comes with many tech upgrades

Ever since the uber-luxurious automakers ventured into high-riding vehicles, they’ve become less niche and more mainstream. Just like the Urus and the Cullinan have raked up big numbers for Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce respectively, the Bentayga has done that for Bentley. While you can maintain exclusivity and uniqueness at that price point, you still have to keep your finger on the pulse; the case in point here being the hybrid technology.

Bentley introduced the Bentayga Hybrid in 2020 and it soon became one of the most popular variants in the SUV’s lineup. Within a year, the British automaker has introduced the facelifted version that comes with refreshed styling inside out and updates on the tech front. The 2020 Bentayga Hybrid was the company’s first hybrid ever; so, does the 2021 model overcome any shortcomings?

You Might Want to Think Twice About Putting Big Wheels On Your EV

You Might Want to Think Twice About Putting Big Wheels On Your EV

More specifically, range is going to take a hit

Since electric powertrains have started crawling inside our cars, manufacturers had to find ways to make said powertrains as efficient as possible. Aside from battery chemistry, size, and other such factors, an EV’s ability to travel more miles on a full charge is also an affair of aerodynamics and rolling resistance.

In the video below, Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained shows why big wheels impact an electric car’s driving range.

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler 4xe is the fastest, most powerful Wrangler ever produced

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler hybrid is more powerful than the Ford Bronco!

The Jeep Wrangler is legendary for its rugged design and impressive capability on the unbeaten path. And that’s mostly why the idea of an electrified Wrangler seemed ridiculous until recently. But Jeep is slowly electrifying its lineup and, somewhat surprisingly, it picked the Wrangler as the first nameplate to benefit from a full-fledged hybrid setup. And the result is the fastest and most powerful Wrangler developed so far!

The Enyaq iV is essentially Skoda’s own variant of the upcoming Volkswagen ID.4.
