BVB supporter? Borussia Dortmund and Opel have built a ‘car’ for you

Borussia Dortmund, arguably one of the most popular German football clubs outside of Germany, and Opel have worked together to create this weird little thing called the Rocks-E 09. They call it an SUM, which stands for Sustainable Urban Mobility, and anybody over the age of 15 can drive it (with an AM driver’s license … More BVB supporter?

3 cars to look forward to at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon

The Tokyo Auto Salon, traditionally held in January at the Makuhari Messe, is basically the Japanese equivalent of the Sema show in America.

Nikola Motor is [officially] no longer in trouble after agreeing to a multi-million-dollar settlement with the SEC

We’re gonna have to talk about Nikola for the second day in a row because after delivering its first electric semi trucks, the Arizona-based EV manufacturer is moving on, putting past legal issues behind it with a $125mln settlement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It’s a well-known story but let’s do a … More Nikola Motor is [officially] no longer in trouble after agreeing to a multi-million-dollar settlement with the SEC

Škoda will ‘coupenise’ the Enyaq (not a real word, I know)

Škoda will turn the Enyaq, which is technically an SUV and is theoretically called ‘Enyaq IV’, into a coupe on January 31, 2022. Just like the regular Enyaq, the coupe version will be built on Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which means it’ll probably look a lot like these modern SUV/Coupes. We don’t know much about it … More Škoda will ‘coupenise’ the Enyaq (not a real word, I know)

Cupra hires the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner as a brand ambassador

There’s a watch brand I’m not gonna mention (because they don’t deserve it) that sold a lot of watches because they spent years (and cash) hiring brand ambassadors like the company’s life depended on it. Which it did, in a way. Tudor did the same thing, and placed its name back on the horological map … More Cupra hires the 2021 Ballon d’Or winner as a brand ambassador

Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin, Musk says ‘it’s better than bitcoin’

Elon Musk was recently named “[Time] Person of The Year” and after the ‘ceremony’, he said Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin (DOGE) payments for some merchandise, *not* for the cars. At least for now. Musk said that, as a means of payment, dogecoin is actually better than bitcoin (mostly because of transaction fees and speed). … More Tesla will begin accepting Dogecoin, Musk says ‘it’s better than bitcoin’

Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq

Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq. Škoda is one of the few brands that’s actually trying to make generic-looking SUVs more interesting. First of all, they’ve devised this unique naming scheme whereby every SUV they build begins with a K and ends with a Q (Karog, Kodiaq, etc). It looks good, … More Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq

The VW ID.5 is available for preorder (and it ain’t cheap!)

Guess what, you can now buy yet another electric SUV with a hefty price tag. It’s the brand-new ID.5 – the latest (and largest) addition to the available range of electric VWs (all of which are built on the same modular platform, btw). The car is available for preorder as we speak, with three engine … More The VW ID.5 is available for preorder (and it ain’t cheap!)

A massive, solar-powered truck named after Edison

A discussion involving the names ‘Tesla’ and ‘Edison’ would definitely end up in a fight so we’ll just gloss over that and focus on the fact that this truck is indeed named after Nikola Tesla’s rival: Edison. Well, technically the name of the company is EdisonFuture. They call it the ’EF1-T’ – the T stands … More A massive, solar-powered truck named after Edison
