A world’s first: Nissan has just unveiled a new car in the Metaverse

I may have mentioned this before: up until very recently, I mostly covered car news and reviews but now my focus is 95% on crypto. Obviously, I still keep an eye on what’s going on in the car world and my job is made easier by the fact that automakers are becoming increasingly interested in … More A world’s first: Nissan has just unveiled a new car in the Metaverse

Batman will sooner or later drive this electric hypercar

This is the Spéirling, built by McMurtry Automotive, and this is a track-only (no s**t) electric hypercar delivering 1000 bhp. It’s kinda complicated because for starters, there only two motors and both are located at the rear, meaning the car is an RWD. The Spéirling relies on a complex puzzle of wings, massive diffusers, and … More Batman will sooner or later drive this electric hypercar

Škoda teased the upcoming Eniaq Coupé, and it looks odd

Yet another SUV/Coupe is about to hit the market, there are a couple of reasons why I’m excited (sort of) about this and a few more why I’m not.

UK study reveals 9 in 10 EV owners wouldn’t go back to petrol or diesel

Zap-Map, an app designed to help drivers locate EV charging points in the UK, has conducted an interesting study, interviewing over 3,000 EV and PHEV owners and asking them a simple question: would you go back to petrol/diesel? According to the study, 9 out of 10 said no. I’m guessing the result wouldn’t be as … More UK study reveals 9 in 10 EV owners wouldn’t go back to petrol or diesel

This oddly-coloured Nissan is further proof that we should stop buying grey cars

Nissan wants to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the production facility in Sunderland, UK in style with an odd – and oddly fascinating – Bluebird elektromod with psychedelic paint. They actually call it the ‘Newbird’ because it’s built on a Bluebird but it utilises a 40 kWh battery pack and inverter borrowed from a Nissan … More This oddly-coloured Nissan is further proof that we should stop buying grey cars

Mercedes is expanding the EQ line-up with yet another saloon/coupe/whatever, dubbed the Vision EQXX, which is going to be revelaed at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 3, 2022.
