All the emissions targets being set by Governments in the West has had even luxury car makers scrambling to find ways to cut emissions of ‘Green House’ gases, and hit the targets that have been set. Much as they may prefer to ignore the targets (and many have doubts about their efficacy) in the real […]

Surprise, surprise! Jenson Button has won the Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul, making it six wins out of seven and what is beginning to look like an unassailable lead in the drivers (and constructors) championship. Contrary to recent form, Button failed by a whisker to take pole position in Q3 qualifying yesterday, having to cede […]
The electric car battle is now on the move in to a new phase – mainstream. Until now, electric cars have been very much an oddity. The laughable G-Whiz and the Tesla Roadster are interesting in their own way, but unless you want to look like Noddy’s best friend (G-Whiz) or are happy to have […]
The KTM X-Bow is another of those four-wheeled motor bikes – just like the Ariel Atom. Open, exciting & thrilling in equal measure, it’s about the best way to have real fun on the roads (flies and weather permitting!). KTM is an Austrian Motor Cycle manufacturer which has woken up to the possibilities of making […]
We reported last week that, contrary to rumours flying around, Fiat will not be taking its range of cars to the States and simply sticking Chrysler badges on. It is their intention to provide platforms and some engines to their newly acquired Chrysler operation, and develop cars in America just for the American market. But, […]
For the ninth year in a row Lexus has topped the customer satisfaction survey by J.D. Power – an amazing feat. But is it? People who buy a Lexus are buying in to something very specific. They are willing to pay a premium price for a well-built car that doesn’t go wrong and which is […]
Infiniti, which is to Nissan what Lexus is to Toyota, is stepping up their European launch programme, and have released details of just what the new Infiniti G37 Convertible for the UK has to offer. We’ve got used, particularly of late, to thinking of high-end, sporty Nissans as hard-edged machines, capable of taking on the […]
It might have an odd name, and one that makes you think of a certain amber coloured refreshment rather than a car, but odd name or not, the Subaru Stella Plug-in Electric car has gone on sale in Japan today, with first deliveries expected in July. Not designed to be anything other than a city […]
I’m so ancient now that I still think of diesel engines as slow, noisy, dirty and horrible to drive. Fit only for a taxi or an HGV. But car makers are getting better and better at producing economical, good performing diesel engines. Engines so good that they make a nonsense of the whole push towards […]
Renault previewed the new Megane Estate at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and has today released more details on the new model, which joins the Hatchback, Coupe, the new Renault Scenic we reported on yesterday and the recently launched Grand Scenic models in the Megane range. We think this might be a bit of […]
