You Future BMW EV Could Be Cutting Edge but Also Part Ford

The promises of solid-state batteries such as longer range, faster charging times, and being free from rare earth metals will most definitely make electric vehicles (EVs) mainstream. Among the numerous solid-state battery start-ups out there, Colorado-based Solid Power seems to be ahead of everyone else, thanks to BMW and Ford investing in the company. These two companies could be the first to benefit from Solid Power’s new technology, but that also means they’ll share some DNA.

Throwback - When Bose Made the World’s Best Car Suspension

Let’s take a walk down memory lane to a time when Bose made a suspension system that defied the laws of physics

Bose, the makers of high-end audio equipment was the brainchild of an enterprising gentleman named Amar Bose who incorporated the Framingham, Massachusetts-based company in 1964. The man was not just an engineer who had a passion for sound but a professor at MIT who had a passion for innovation and excellence. It was this passion that lead to the success of his brand in the highly lucrative lifestyle audio space. But he didn’t stop at audio products, his passion for engineering led him to create one of the most advanced suspension systems in the world, which nearly four decades later, still feels like it came straight from the future.

The E-Crate Motor Revolution is Brewing a New Age of Enthusiasts

Ford and Chevy have stepped up where Tesla failed, and it’s leading more change than anyone expected

Tesla’s dominance in the EV industry has been challenged many times, but Ford’s recent announcement stating the overwhelming demand for their E-crate motor and the fact that they ran out of stock in no time is a big blow to Tesla. Tesla’s software company first and car company later approach has never been under the scanner, but it appears as though things are changing for the better.

Is The BMW i4 Worthy Enough To Be The Tesla Model 3 Killer?

Is The BMW i4 Worthy Enough To Be The Tesla Model 3 Killer?

Doug DeMuro takes a closer look at the quirks and features of the Bavarian automaker’s latest performance EV

In his latest video, Doug DeMuro got to check out the new BMW i4 M50, which is supposedly the Bavarian automaker’s all-electric take on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. As with any Doug video, this is an in-depth tour of the first-ever all-electric BMW to be given the full M treatment. Granted this is an M Sport model rather than an out and out M, but with 536 horsepower on tap, I don’t see anyone complaining.

It’s no surprise that with that the i4 M50 is aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3 Performance. The Polestar 2 was yet another noteworthy model that also goes up against the Tesla. Coming back to how the i4 stacks up against the Model 3 (457 horsepower), while it is more powerful as opposed to the Tesla, the Model 3 has a considerably longer range at 315 miles as opposed to the BMW’s 270 miles.

The Four-door Nissan GT-R Sounds Cringe, But It Actually Makes Sense

Nissan is going up against the Porsche Taycan, and these renderings of a four-door GT-R EV prove it

Nissan is in an interesting place. It gave us the first new Z in 14 years and its newly introduced Ariya is the brand’s first EV crossover. While both models have been delayed due to supply chain problems, there is another interesting development. It concerns the Nissan GT-R and the possibility of a four-door version, which may also be an EV. If what we hear is true, this could mean that the R36 generation will come in, at least, two flavors. Is Nissan planning to compete with the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S Plaid?

Here's Doug DeMuro's Take On What Could Likely Be The Very Last Audi S8

Here’s Doug DeMuro’s Take On What Could Likely Be The Very Last Audi S8

A quick run down on the quirks and features of Audi’s latest flagship performance Limo

Doug DeMuro featured the refreshed Audi S8 in his latest video. As with any of his reviews, he dwells deeper than your typical run-of-the-mill review, going over the quirks and features of the latest S8. The A8/S8 lineup has always been the underdog and the least popular of the flagship German limousines, with its chief rivals being the Mercedes Benz S Class and the BMW 7 Series. It has often been criticized for looking too much like a scaled-up Audi A4 or A6.

Having said that, there is still a lot to like about the S8, especially when you consider that this latest model is about $15k cheaper than the outgoing model. The S8 is also ideal if you prefer to fly under the radar and the understated styling sure does come into play here. Find out why Doug thinks this might very well be the very last Audi S8 in his video below.

Lucid Air And Tesla Model S Plaid Redefine Speed By Racing Against Gravity And A BMW E39 M5

The Tesla Model S Plaid and Lucid Air prove high-performance EVs are faster than gravity

High-performance EVs are here and they are very fast. The Tesla Model S Plaid and, now, the Lucid Air are both capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in the two-second range, and both pack over 1,000 horsepower. To get an idea of just how fast cars have become, both EVs will square off against the fastest sedan from 20 years go – the BMW M5 E39 – in a quarter-mile drag race with a twist, after which both EVs will race against…a person falling from an airplane.
