    Heading into an era of more cars using electric power, BMW has a particularly lofty challenge: make sure to retain as much of the essence of their legendary sport sedans as possible.The initial effort, which is set to arrive for 2022 , is the i4. "i" being BMW's designation for electric models, and "4" as in 4-series, the coupe variant of the 3-series. Yes, they call this 4-door a Gran Coupe, as it actually features a liftback design, combining a sleek roofline with practicality.Step inside and it's like stepping into a current 4-series or 3-series. There's just no gasoline engine up front. Instead, you're propelled by an electric motor in the base of the i4 eDrive40, or dual motors in the i4 M50, with all the associated torque.Aim the i4 to some corners and it's obvious that BMW was able to continue the feel of their cars that have tamed corners for decades. That's particularly the case with the M50 model. Perhaps intentionally, when parked, a casual glance might mistake i4 M50 for an M3.The basic i4's range is about...
    Ford has today announced it will launch seven new electric vehicles in Europe in the next two years as it provided new details of its plans to go green. Three will be electric cars - one of them based on the Volkswagen ID.4 SUV - and four will be electric vans, with Ford also announcing on Monday that it will rid emissions from its European commercial vehicles from 2035. Bosses have earmarked sales of more than 600,000 electric vehicles per year in Europe by 2026, as Ford aims to become a carbon neutral business nine years later.  The news comes just weeks after the US auto company confirmed that it will split its operations in two: 'Ford Blue' will concentrate on the development of its conventional combustion-engine models up until 2030 while 'Ford Model e' will solely focus on EVs.  Ford's electric push: The US brand has confirmed it will launch seven new EVs in Europe in the next two years, taking its zero-emission line-up to nine cars by 2024. The Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit are already on sale Three...
    In this article GM2022 Chevrolet Silverado ZR2GMDETROIT – General Motors will add a new off-road version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to its highly profitable truck lineup next year, ahead of the brand's push into electric pickups. The automaker unveiled the 2022 Silverado ZR2 online Thursday as a new vehicle as part of an updated lineup for the Silverado that's expected to go on sale next spring. The changes to the pickup come ahead of GM offering at least three electric pickups, including a Silverado, in the coming years.

    It's been in the news a lot this year: the tentatively-planned future of the automobile is electric power. And that's also the announced future of Volvo."Our fleet's going to be 100% electric cars by 2030, with 50% electric by 2025. We're serious about being electric," said Russell Datz, head of public relations for Volvo Car USA.First up was the Volvo XC40 Recharge, an all-electric version of their conventional compact SUV that went on sale earlier this year for a base price of $53,990 before any incentives or tax credits. Their next EV was recently revealed, the C40 Recharge."The C40 is our very first electric-only car. This has never been, and never will be, a gasoline-powered vehicle. Only electric," Datz noted.And so it begins: fully-electric cars from the famous Swedish brand. Though it can get a little confusing, because there's already an all-electric Swedish car brand launched last year called Polestar. Their early lineup somewhat resembles Volvo's current design language, because Polestar is a close relative of - and partially owned by - Volvo."Volvo will always be about safety, and Polestar...
    In this article LEXUS-IN 7203.T-JP TSLA Lexus LF-Z Electrified concept vehicleLexusLexus is planning to introduce 20 new or redesigned vehicles globally by 2025, at least half of which executives say will be all-electric or electrified hybrid models. To symbolize the direction of its future vehicles, the Toyota Motor-owned luxury brand unveiled a new concept car Tuesday called the LF-Z Electrified. The all-electric vehicle features many of the company's signature design elements such as check-mark headlights and spindle grill but with new, more modern interpretations. The interior of the vehicle features a somewhat minimalist interior design aside from a host of driver-centric cockpit screens. Many automakers have been moving to such designs, mimicking elements of EV manufacturer Tesla. Lexus did not release performance expectations such as range, horsepower or torque. Automakers often use concept vehicles to gauge customer interest or show the future direction of a vehicle or brand.Lexus LF-Z Electrified concept vehicleLexusLexus has been slower than other brands to release all-electric vehicles after its parent company led automakers to develop hybrid vehicles following the success of the Toyota Prius....
    Kia has given us a shadowy look at its soon-to-be-launched electric vehicle, the EV6, which is the automaker’s first model based on the E-GMP platform. The company has published a few teaser photos of the model, and as Autoblog notes, they show the silhouette of a four-door crossover with curved lines and stylized LED lights. Kia first teased the EV6 back in January, when it revealed its plans to ship seven electric vehicles by 2027 and when it officially dropped “Motors” from its name as part of its efforts to become a company that creates “sustainable mobility options.” Kia The automaker shares the E-GMP platform with its part-owner, the Hyundai Motor Group. Thus far, all their EVs had been adapter from existing platforms, but the E-GMP will allow them to build their own electric models from the ground up. Vehicles built on the E-GMP will be capable of charging at either 400V or 800V. They will have a range of about 500 kilometers (310 miles) and be able to charge “80 percent in just 18 minutes” with the ability to...
    After several years of waiting and many months of delay, we finally find ourselves in front of Chevrolet’s new compact electric crossover. This uses the Chevrolet Bolt’s BEV2 platform and has a 65 kWh battery pack capable of homologate 402 kilometers of autonomy. The American corporation at the end has lifted the veil on its two new compact electrics, although it would be fair to say that only one of them is totally new, since the other is nothing more than a great update of the model that has been marketed since 2016, the Chevrolet Bolt EV. Like both models are integrated in the same range and share technical scheme, the American brand has decided that they also share a name, which in practice is as confusing as it seems, since the names of both models are practically identical. On the one hand we have the renewed Chevrolet Bolt EV, which is still a very deep restyling of the compact electric MPV that Chevy already marketed, while on the other hand we find the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, whose name...
    2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xeFiat Chrysler Stellantis – the product of a $52 billion merger between automakers Fiat Chrysler and Groupe PSA – plans to offer an array of all-electric or hybrid vehicles through 2025, including 10 new models in 2021, according to CEO Carlos Tavares. From Dodge to Maserati, every new model the company launches from now until 2025 will offer an "electrified" variant. He did not specify how many would be all-electric, plug-in hybrids or traditional hybrids that don't need to be plugged in. The new models and merger, which was completed Saturday, come as legacy automakers are struggling to convince Wall Street that they can compete against Tesla and a host of new EV start-ups. As Stellantis shares jumped more than 11% during their Tuesday debut on the New York Stock Exchange, start-up EV truck manufacturer Rivian said it raised $2.65 billion in its latest funding round that valued the company at $27.6 billion. That compares to Stellantis – now the world's fourth-largest automaker – at about $26.5 billion.VIDEO2:1502:15The new merged PSA-FCA group Stellantis starts trading in...
    Cadillac may be plotting an all-electric future, but it’s going old-school before it gets there. With a high-tech touch. Cadillac The luxury brand will be making its upcoming high performance CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing sedans available with manual transmissions, something you can’t even get in the latest Corvette.

    Ioniq 5 The Ioniq range will feature three models by 2025. The number family will be divided into even numbers for sedans and odd numbers for crossover models. The first to arrive, which will do so in early 2021, will be the Ioniq 5 and is based on the amazing 45 EV, the concept car presented during the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. Its design captured the attention of all those present and it is not for less. Its geometric bodywork, with clean and sharp lines, combines the best of the automotive tradition with cutting-edge technologies. Its monocoque body is very reminiscent of the Hyundai Pony Coupe Concept, the first prototype manufactured by the firm in 1974. That model gave life to the production Pony and this last concept car will do so with the Ioniq 5. The number 45 alludes to the degrees that form the corners of the futuristic vehicle, a detail that we don’t see too realistic for the final model. The digital mirrors and the LED modules on its grill,...
    Ioniq, name that until now carried some models of the Korean company that worked with batteries (hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric) “data-reactid =” 12 “> This Sunday, August 9, Hyundai Motors officially launched its new brand of electric vehicles: Ioniq , a name that until now carried some models of the Korean company that worked with batteries (hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric) The difference is that it is a different firm that will present three new models of electric cars over the next four years. These will be baptized with numerical names. The first model will be the Ioniq 5, a midsize crossover that will be launched in early 2021. It is based on the EV 45 concept presented at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. According to a statement, “The designers of the Ioniq 5 were inspired by the past and integrated cutting-edge parametric pixels.” Then, in 2022, the brand will introduce the Ioniq 6 sedan based on the EV Prophecy concept, unveiled in March. The exterior design of the Prophecy is characterized by an “aerodynamic silhouette of perfect proportions”....
    By Paul Lienert (Reuters) - Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Co is creating a family of electric vehicles it will sell under the Ioniq brand as part of its drive to become the world's third-largest seller of EVs by 2025, the company said on Sunday. Hyundai said the elevation of Ioniq from an individual vehicle nameplate to a brand will help support its goal of capturing 10% of global EV sales in 2025. With electric vehicles still struggling to gain traction in most major markets, Hyundai's main competitors will likely include traditional automakers Volkswagen AG and General Motors Co , both of which have announced plans to build and sell a million or more electric vehicles a year by 2025. California-based Tesla Inc , which makes only electric vehicles, aims to retain its current position as the world's EV leader. Chief Executive Elon Musk has said he expects the company to sell "a few million" vehicles in 2025. Ioniq was launched four years ago as a vehicle name plate under the Hyundai brand. The compact hatchback was offered with...
    If you’d love to replace your ageing car with an electric model but have been put off because you don’t have a drive on which to charge it, it’s time to think again. The latest electric cars can travel 230-260 miles between refills. This, plus improvements to the infrastructure that allow 80% recharges in just 30-40 minutes, means they can almost be run in the same way as conventional models – with a once-a-week refill. Figures out this week showed that 6% of new cars sold in June were fully electric models – making it the fastest growing sector. There are now 300,000 plug-in cars on the UK’s roads, compared with just 3,500 in 2013, and almost 120,000 of them run purely on battery power. This week British Gas revealed it had ordered 1,000 all-electric Vivaro vans from Vauxhall for its engineers. If it is preparing to move its entire fleet over to electric, is it time the rest of us considered electric vehicles too? “If you’re looking to buy a new or used car, now is the perfect time...
