      Wut? :what:

      From Wikipedia: "The name One:1 comes from the power (1361 PS) to weight (1361 kg) ratio giving the car 1 PS per 1 kg weight. The 1361 PS power output is the equivalent of one megawatt...

      Makes sense to have only one sports car chassis, especially for a small manufacturer like Mazda. I assume it would be about the same size a the mk1 RX7, which is a good thing in my book. I would not...

      I own five vehicles, each having its own purpose, so not possible for me, I guess. :(

      Jeez lease rates in the US are so cheap. I priced one for fun and it comes down to approx. $1K a month on a 36 month lease in Canada. I really like the i3, but that's just insane.

      Huh? I thought regen braking was done by the electric motor, not the brakes. :confused: Most EV owners I met raved about the low maintenance costs, including brakes. :confused:

      So, if I understand correctly, this is a similar application of electric motors that the Merc SLS electric had. One motor per wheel, so complete and instant torque vectoring. I can't wait for this to...

      I still have a '92 YJ. It probably belongs in a scrap yard as it is completely rotted out, but it is still fun at low speed around the cottage, where it lives. It is also terrifying above 50 kmph....

      No love for the GM twins? I like my ol' Express. I use it as a mobile shed for my kayaks and everything related to the cottage.

      You could find an awd version, which could come in handy in the...

      You forgot PHEV Wranglers for those who like to hug trees, even without a winch. ;)

      I agree they should offer more than one option, just like with pick up trucks. They already sell very well....

      Here is a short summary of my impressions for each car I tested. Bear in mind each test drive was short, without highway or twisty roads (but plenty of traffic lights.

      No, unfortunately. The Fisker and the Ranger were only there for display. There was also an i8 earlier that day, but I did not get a chance to take a picture before it left.



      Yeah, the S was an...

      I participated to an event called “Branchez-vous”. It is a play on words as it literally means “plug yourself” but is also a common expression in French that means “you need to make a decision”. The...

      Now that it looks more like a CUV with a bed (which is pretty much what it is), maybe it will get more attention? It will never compete with "real" trucks, but between that and a Pilot, I think some...

      Question on tires : LT vs Passenger XL

      I’m looking for all terrain tires for old GMC Rally Van, which I will use on a road trip. I will use it a lot on gravel roads, so the tires must be sturdy. I was looking at the Toyo Open Country AT...

      I added "AND to be stylish/trendy". Apple introduces a new must-have phone every year or so. People usually replace them way before their useful life ends because of new designs and to look cool. I...

      It might be that they are too small to have the $$ to re-tool, but I for one, like this approach of constantly updating the tech while keeping the looks of the car for a good while. Probably better...
