Audi PB18 e-tron Cars 

Audi PB18 – Light Electric Supercar

The Audi PB18 was unveiled yesterday at the annual poshfest at Pebble Beach.  Ingolstadts’s commitment to electric cars continues with a very pretty – and working – electric supercar concept. Despite almost nobody buying the R8 e-tron, Audi persists. And thank goodness for that. Much like the Infiniti Prototype 10, the PB18 is a monoposto single-seater, but that’s pretty much where the similarities end. For a start the PB18 has a roof. Looking at it, you can clearly see the design elements pinched from the limited edition Aicon as well as the…

Infiniti Prototype 10 Unveiled

The Infiniti Prototype 10 is the Japanese luxury maker’s Monterey show car. And, let’s be honest, it’s a cry for attention. Infiniti has struggled for the sort of success of compatriot Lexus, so the company has gone big. The Prototype 10 is quite interesting. The Prototype 10  will grab some headlines because it’s quite striking. And kind of irrelevant – there is absolutely no way this car is going anywhere near a production line. What is the Infiniti Prototype 10? Following on from the Prototype 9, Protoype 10 is an…

Porsche Taycan – New Electric Porsche Named

Porsche’s electric future is underway and the first car has a name – Porsche Taycan. Yeah, you read that right. Tell me you didn’t hear aha’s “Take On Me” in your head as soon as you saw that. Mission-E becomes Porsche Taycan The Porsche path to electric has been a long, considered one. While Tesla provides covering fire for everyone, the people at Porsche have been getting on with it. By 2022, Porsche will have spent more than €6bn (US$7.1bn) on electric mobility. That’s twice the originally-planned figure, but I smell…

The Maserati Alfieri is Electrifying – Guaranteed

You read that dodgy joke right – the next Maserati coupe, the Alfieri, is going electric. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ outgoing boss, Sergio Marchionne spent Friday telling the world about his five-year plan that someone else has to deliver. He’s off to terrorise his grandkids if they don’t win every three-legged race. Maserati’s sales increase increase since 2011 – 700 percent! – is funding two new models to join the Levante, Ghibli and Quattroporte. That means the Alfieri (finally) and a new mid-size SUV to take on the Q5/X3/GLC-sized segment. The…

New Electric Jaguar I-Pace is Fast and Cool

Here’s a thing – the new Jaguar I-Pace is fast. Like really fast. And I reckon Tesla should watch out because not only will the I-Pace see off a Model X 100D, it looks better and is bound to be built better. Rolling down the line at Austria’s Magna-Steyr – alongside E-Pace – the I is Jaguar’s game-changer.   Jaguar I-Pace The I-Pace feels like it has been a long time coming, but it’s hugely important. It’s not just important to Jaguar, but to the whole industry. It’s the first…

Range Rover PHEV Climbs Some Stairs

In what appears to be an act of automotive parkour, the new Range Rover PHEV has climbed to China’s Dragon’s Road and then on to Heaven’s Gate. All 99 turns and 999 steps including a 45-degree incline to get there. That’s…well, it’s slightly nuts. But you can’t have stunts without nuts and a couple of extra letters. Stunts also need good drivers, or, failing that a driver with a local connection. Ho-Pin Tung is a good driver and has a local connection – he had the chops to be a…

Frankfurt 2017: Jaguar Announces I-PACE eTrophy

Jaguar Announces I-PACE eTrophy The all-electric I-Pace hasn’t hit the roads yet, but already Jaguar has announced the i-Pace eTrophy. Slightly cringeworthy name aside, the racing series will support Formula E races. The British brand was the first to get themselves a place in the electric open-wheeler series which is growing in popularity. What’s an I-Pace? SUVs aren’t really The Redline’s thing, so it’s worth having a quick trip down Jaguar’s high-riding product line. The company’s first SUV was the F-Pace, which went completely ballistic, selling over 80,000 units in…
