BMW Planning Different Sized Battery Cells, So Expect to Pony Up For Anything Above 280 Miles Per Charge

BMW Planning Different Sized Battery Cells, So Expect to Pony Up For Anything Above 280 Miles Per Charge

You could get up to 435 miles of range, though, so that’s cool

The BMW Group has big plans for its future all-electric lineup. A big part of those plans is the development of a number of battery packs with different amounts of power and range. The automaker’s goal is to create different battery packs that it can put in its future electric cars, at least depending on the segment those EVs will be slotted in. That means that, in addition to carrying different amounts of power, these batteries will also differ in size, depending on the size of the model that’s going to use them.

Video of the Day: Volkswagen Gold GTi vs Hyundai I30 N

Can the newcomer to the segment, the Hyundai i30 N, take on an old dog like the Volkswagen Golf GTi? Well, it certainly can, and it does it well, but everything isn’t always as it seems since the Golf GTi used in this video isn’t the highest-producing dog in the stable. As such, the I30N had a good 45 horsepower on it. So, it wasn’t exactly fair, but it’s still fun to watch the Hyundai cream the Volkswagen back-to-back-to-back. Check out the video below for yourself!

Start Preparing for a World Where Plug-In Hybrid Lamborghinis Exist

Start Preparing for a World Where Plug-In Hybrid Lamborghinis Exist

Successors to the Huracan and Aventador will carry hybrid systems

It’s official. Lamborghini will replace the Aventador and Huracan supercars with plug-in hybrid successors. The two models are scheduled to arrive sometime in 2020 and 2022, respectively. That should be enough time for Lambo purists and old-school fans alike to come to grips with the future direction of the Italian automaker. Don’t feel too bad, though, because naturally aspirated V-10s and V-12s will remain part of Lamborghini’s powertrain equation. They’ll just get some form of hybrid assistance to help Lamborghini cut back on its emissions output.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Audi R8 Coupe

Audi debuted the second-gen R8 Coupe for the 2016 model year, but it was more of a dud in terms of generational evolution. To be quite honest, it looked really similar to the mode it replaced. But, it’s a still alternative to anything from Lamborghini or Ferrari and it does look good even if its design is considered too similar to the first-gen model. Either way, if you’re a fan of the R8, then it deserves some screen time on your computer. Go ahead and take our favorite wallpaper or pick one from the handpicked gallery below.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 BMW M5

Arguably the most intriguing fact about the new M5 is that gained all-wheel-drive. The rumor had been circulating for quite a few years, and BMW finally decided to offer it as standard in the United States. The move is far from surprising, as both Audi and Mercedes-Benz have adopted all-wheel-drive for most of their performance cars. So basically BMW is bringing the M5 in line with its main U.S. rivals, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and the Audi RS7. Now, you can give it a nice home as a wallpaper on your desktop :)

Video of the Day: Polestar 1 Spreading 600 Horsepower Worth of Love On the Ice and Snow

Video of the Day: Polestar 1 Spreading 600 Horsepower Worth of Love On the Ice and Snow

The Polestar 1 is a 600-horsepower, slightly revamped version of a coupe concept that Volvo released back in 2013. Yeah. Polestar and Volvo really were that lazy, but that’s water under the bridge. What matters now is that the Polestar 1 is a real vehicle and it’s a mean one at that. To give you an idea of just how anal Polestar is when it comes to tuning and ride characteristics, it has released a video of the Polestar 1 getting it in on the snow and ice. Apparently, Polestar tried out 20 different sway bars (10 front and 10 rear) to determine which one was just right. Apparently, the car was completely void of any driver assistance features as well. Anyway, check out the short video and let us know what you think!

Ford Considering AWD and All-Electric Powertrain for the Next-Gen Mustang

Ford Considering AWD and All-Electric Powertrain for the Next-Gen Mustang

A Mustang-based SUV is underway too!

The Ford Mustang is one of the most iconic cars ever build and there are many reasons for that. The innovative approach in the 1960s, the performance, the sales success, and its legacy on the race track have all contributed to the legend. But the nameplate also went through drastic changes. The second-gen model is now hated for turning the muscle car into a mundane compact, while the fourth-gen Mustang was this close to becoming a front-wheel drive car. The modern Mustang is again a symbol that brings together performance and affordability, but the nameplate is in for major changes in the near future. We already know that the pony will get a hybrid drivetrain in 2019, but it seems that Ford is considering offering the Mustang with all-wheel drive and as an EV.

The EV version is reportedly scheduled to arrive with the next-generation model. With the current-gen pony set to get a hybrid for the 2020 model year, it’s safe to assume that the seventh-gen Mustang won’t be here sooner than 2022. The same goes for the all-wheel-drive system, which won’t make it into the Mustang until Ford redesigns the car from the ground up.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2018 Kia Stinger

Kia absolutely blew our minds when it pulled the sheet off of the Stinger, and it did so at it put the Germans in check. Fast forward from that moment and the Stinger is alive and well, and it’s priced lower than all of its German competition. It’s a beautiful performance sedan, with plenty of power, tons of comfort and technology, and room to grow in the future if Kia’s up to it. It’s not as unattainable as a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Maserati is for most of us but it’s beautiful nonetheless, so we’ve decided that it’s worthy of that wallpaper treatment and have handpicked a few just for you.

Aston Martin Drops Vanquish Name, Revives DBS Superleggera with Teaser

Aston Martin Drops Vanquish Name, Revives DBS Superleggera with Teaser

The nameplate returns after six years

Aston Martin is in the middle of an important reorganization process that involves brand-new models and technology, as well as finding ways to bring more profits to the company. Having already launched the new-generation Vantage and the DB11 as a replacement for the iconic DB9, the British firm still has a crossover to launch, but more importantly, it needs to update the Rapide and Vanquish models. While the Rapide might not get a successor, Aston Martin will continue to offer a flagship grand tourer, but the next-generation model will drop the Vanquish nameplate in favor of the DBS Superleggera. More specifically, Aston Martin is reviving the DBS, which replaced the Vanquish between 2007 and 2012, and it’s also reviving its collaboration with Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera of Milan, Italy.

2019 BMW M2 Competition

2019 BMW M2 Competition

Compact size with M4 power!

Revealed in October 2015, the BMW M2 Coupe turned out to be a revival of the iconic BMW 1 Series M Coupe from 2012. With a more compact body and a power-to-weight ratio similar to the M4, the M2 is actually a better option for those looking for the dynamics and dimensions of the original M3. All told, there are plenty of things to get excited about with the M2 Coupe. However, as soon as it arrived, word got out that the M2 won’t be the most hardcore incarnation of the 2 Series. Original rumors talked about a CSL version of the coupe, but come 2018 and BMW launched a more powerful version of the car under the Competition name. And surprisingly enough, it’s not an addition to the lineup, but a successor to the M2 Coupe.

Although it’s actually mid-cycle facelift, the M2 Competition received a notable amount of extra features over the standard M2. The exterior is a bit more aggressive, while the interior gained new standard features and carbon-fiber trim. There’s big news under the skin too, where the M2 Competition comes with an engine based on the M4, with more oomph obviously, and upgraded chassis, cooling, brakes, and exhaust. All told, the M2 Competition is a slightly more compact M4 now, which is both good and bad for the company. Keep reading to find out why.
