A different Renault Laguna...

It looks nice, has a Renault badge and Laguna written in the plate. But it looks too good to be true!... and it surely doesn't look French.

Audi Q7 finally gets 5 stars... errr... no?!

This is making us look bad. Some months ago when EuroNCAP crash-test results of the Audi Q7 were made public we predicted that Audi would improve the 4-star rating very soon. I mean, it must be a simple task to get it properly done since so many cars now get the 5 stars. But not yet. Just now the Fiat 500 and Kia Ceed were tested and got the usual 5-star rating. Audi is making us look bad because this joint is about the future and we like to make credible predictions! Come on, surely it isn't that difficult for a car like the Audi Q7 to get the 5-stars... maybe improve the steel or whatever!

The road to EV future: Chevy Volt video

A nice story on the Volt with plenty of info. Our concept car of the year and, hopefully, very close to a future real car.

The road to EV future: Nissan Pivo

The Nissan Pivo is one of those rare concept cars that don't disappear from shows. Nissan keeps showing it and for good reasons: it is expected a production version in 2010-2011... but it won't look like this and it will not rotate.

The road to EV future: Plug-in Prius video

One day hybrids will be remembered as the Trojan horse of Electric vehicles. Another step in the evolution to EV future is promised by Toyota with the Plug-in Prius. Still, not a lot of range (about 8 miles on full electric), but others will follow.
