  1. My personal opinion is that the Model 3 is the better looking car and is where I would put my money (not that I have any). I used to think that it looks identical to the Mazda3, at least the frontal and side profile but after having driven one, I concede my impression did changed for the better. I don't know about the Polestar 2 but the surround sound system in the Model 3 Performance is superb 😆 Plus the oddly tall ride height of the Polestar 2 resembles a crossover more than a sedan, and that's not exactly to my liking. Read our comparison review on the Model 3 vs Polestar 2 here https
  2. This informative video explains the real world challenges that electric vehicles are facing, which is not about the cost, battery technology and range.
  3. Another EV to many of us, but it's the first in a series of zero emission battery electric vehicles (BEVs) from Toyota. And it will be on sales from mid of next year. Toyota fans rejoice! Toyota bZ4X Concept is the first model to feature Toyota's new bZ - beyond Zero - naming convention. By 2025, Toyota aims to introduce 15 battery electric vehicles, including 7 Toyota bZ models. The 'bZ' is an acronym for 'beyond Zero', reinforcing Toyota's commitment to not only achieving zero carbon emissions and carbon neutrality, but also going beyon
  4. While it look more like a facelift of the 5th gen Serena (C27), this actually a brand new model from Nissan, and it is now available in 3 drive train options: petrol only, petrol hybrid and ePower (EV). The gasoline version uses a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine with 150 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 200 Newton-meters of torque offered with or without all-wheel drive and a CVT. There's also a hybrid e-Power model (2WD only) with a new and quieter 1.4-liter engine producing 98 hp (72 kW) and 123 Nm. Combined with the electr
  5. 2023 Porsche Macan Electric Spied Looking Like A Diamond In The Rough source: https://www.motor1.com/news/549499/porsche-macan-ev-spy-shots/ The retractable rear spoiler is staying, but the fake exhausts are not. Nov 22, 2021 at 3:46am ET By: Adrian Padeanu Less than 20 years ago, Porsche was all about sports cars. Then the Cayenne arrived to signal Zuffenhausen's portfolio expansion, which continued with the likes of the Panamera sedan / Panamera Sport Turismo wagon and the smaller Macan crossover. Fast forward to 2021, the German high-end brand is also sellin
  6. Officially unveiled at the Vantage Automotive Centre, the Atto 3 debuts as BYD's first-ever contender in the local compact crossover segment. Coincidentally, the SUV also marks the third passenger-car model by the Chinese maker here, following in the footsteps of the best-selling e6 and van-turned-MPV M3e. A single permanent magnet synchronous motor, paired to a 60.5 kWh Blade Battery, helps to produce 201bhp (150kW) and 310Nm of torque - apparently good for a 7.3 second century sprint. With the Blade Battery, the crossover's NEDC-rated range also clocks in at an impressive figure of 480
  7. The distance cousin of Hyundai Ioniq 5. Basing on the silhouette seen below, it look like a sportier version of Ioniq 5. I like! Hyundai inaugurated the E-GMP platform dedicated to electric vehicles a couple of weeks ago with the Ioniq 5 and now sister brand Kia is about to unveil the EV6 riding on the same underpinnings. The zero-emissions model is the firm's first EV to adopt the latest design language and adopts the new nomenclature that will be used by future dedicated electric cars, as small as the EV1 and as large as the EV9. Much like the Ioniq 5,
  8. Been a late comer to the EV era, I think this show hand / all-in moment is Toyota way of playing catch up (heh look here, I have everything ready ok!)... But the fact remain that they are quite far behind other big names from Europe, Korea and China. During the media briefing on battery EV strategies, Akio Toyoda shocked the automotive world by unveiling 15 fully electric concepts previewing future models of Toyota and Lexus. What must be the largest rollout of concept cars in history includes everything you can imagine, from city cars, sedans,
  9. so after reading so many bad reviews about the civic hybrid and several good reviews about the pirus i'm wondering if 100% electric cars will be a good move in the near future, if the battery can withstand our sunny temperatures anybody got any experience to share? what is the lifespan of such batteries? the civic groups complain a whole lot about their batteries but the people who own the piruses seem to be very happy with their cars, so it does seem like a split down the middle
  10. As I have mentioned in a few threads here, China is the leader in EV development and many big names in the automotive industry are trying hard to form JV with some of these well establish EV manufacturers. And I vividly remember 1 MCFer even asked for 'China Talk' folder to be removed from the forum, wait till you see the motoring trend in the next 3 - 5 years... BTW, noticed that it is BYD Toyota EV Technology instead of Toyota BYD EV Technology?

  11. Polestar has taken the next step in its development as the electric performance brand with the reveal of the new Polestar 2. Polestar 2 is the new all-electric fastback that brings electric performance cars to a broader and increasingly progressive audience. It offers avant-garde design and a unique customer experience in the premium compact electric segment.

For the first 12 months of production, guide price of the launch edition is 59,900 euro
  12. Not many formula E threads here but isn't Singapore going green? Maybe we can host the race here as well? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_E Formula E, officially the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship,[1] is a single-seater motorsport championship for electric cars. The series was conceived in 2011 in Paris by FIA president Jean Todt and Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag, who is also the current chairman of Formula E Holdings.[2] The inaugural championship race was held in Beijing in September 2014.[3] Since 2020, the series has FIA world championship status.[4]

  15. Insurance premiums for electric cars can go up to S$5,000 a year In general, the lack of claims data for EVs due to the small population, costlier components such as the battery and fewer workshops with mechanics trained in EV maintenance and repair are some challenges insurers face while formulating the appropriate level of coverage, said several insurers who were responding to queries from The Business Times. https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/insurance-premiums-for-electric-cars-can-go-up-to-s5000-a-year
  16. Source: https://www.lowyat.net/2022/270902/smart-1-official-launch-specs/ Seven months after Concept #1 was revealed in Munich, the revitalise smart Automobile Co. has officially launched its first production model for the company’s new all-electric era, the smart #1. In case you’re wondering, the actual way to pronounce the EV’s name is “smart HASHTAG one” according to the official launch video. In case you are not familiar with the current iteration of smart Automobile Co., the company is no longer a full subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz but has been transformed into a joint venture bet
  17. Volvo Cars bets on electric vehicles Volvo Cars is only going to sell electric vehicles by 2030, the Swedish firm has said. It will phase out all car models with internal combustion engines by then, including hybrids. The carmaker is also planning to invest heavily in online sales and simplifying its products. It is trying to capitalise on growing demand for electric cars, including in China, which is already one of its biggest markets. Carmakers are also responding to pressure from governments around the world to beef up their electric car plans. New
  18. This should be the replacement for the >10 years old Sharan. Photos above are for the standard wheelbase version (4,712mm in length), which will be available in 5 or 6 seater configuration. A long wheelbase version will be added by next year which will be a proper 7 seater (2-3-2 sitting arrangement). The market launch of the ID. Buzz is scheduled for later this year when European customers will be offered a single 82.0-kWh (77.0 kWh net) battery option. Power comes from a single electric motor with 20
  19. Whether we like it or not, electric vehicles are the future. With the growing awareness that the world is literally burning, most car manufacturers are making the shift to electric. Here in Singapore, while progress has perhaps been slower than anticipated, we are seeing a gradual shift towards electrification - both on the buyer’s end, as well as the infrastructure to support these cars. And unlike even just a couple of years ago, these days, living with an EV is increasingly easy. 1. More choices In 2014, there was only one electric passen
  20. YouTuber Alex Choi attended a Tesla meeting where owners showed what modifications they made to their cars. Everything ran smoothly, and everyone was enjoying their time there. But the night ended in a completely different matter. Choi was approached by a Tesla owner that, out of the blue, wanted to show him where David Dobrik (a.k.a Borat) jumped his EV from Elon Musk’s company. Since this was a friendly encounter and a curious invitation, he accepted. What he didn’t expect was to see this owner attempt a jump in that exact spot with his brand-new Tesla Model S. The YouTuber even says t
  21. Wet dream for wagon lover... The Avant E-Tron shares the same dimensions as the earlier A6 Sportback E-Tron Concept. Both are 4.96 meters long, 1.96 meters wide, and 1.44 meters tall. The difference is in the rear styling where the Avant has a more angular roof to make room for the larger cargo area. The result of this sleek look is a 0.24 drag coefficient, versus 0.22 for the Sportback. The A6 Avant E-Tron Concept rides on the Premium Platform Electric (PPE), which is also underneath the forthcoming Q6 E-Tron crossover. I

  23. The original VW Kombi was one of the cars / vans I always wanted to own. My father had a series of VW Beetles, and I used to fall asleep to the sound of the drone of the air cooled rear engine as he fetched me to school.. Now the spiritual successors to the Kombi returns in a electrified form, with a fancy no less... ID. Buzz Yep, that's how it's spelt.
