The BMW i3 has been on our roads since 2013, but despite its popularity, an all electric powertrain is still yet to make it to any other model from the brand. This is set to change in 2021, with the i4 four door coupe entering production to rival the likes of the Tesla Model 3 and Porsche Taycan 4S.

Hyundai and Kia have been on a bit of a roll lately. Kudos to the marque. After a successful period a handful of years ago, the marques seemed to slip into a bit of complacency. Clearly, it''s starting to fire on all cylinders once again. With cars like the Telluride, Veloster R, Palisade and Ioniq, there''s some good work coming out of Korea. Can the automaker keep it up though?Set to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show (GIMS) is an all new electric vehicle concept. Dubbed Prophecy, it certainly is being cast as the soothsayer. In the company issued teaser video, it is an extremely brief look at key components. From what little we can gather, and after a lot of starting and stopping the nine second clip, we're thinking it''s going to be a slinky sedan that takes some creative license from the Tesla Model S and Porsche Taycan.Likely, it will be a design study with no plans to build the exact auto. Expect elements to make their way into production cars down the road.Now, #Hyundai announced new #concept EV #Prophecy''s unveiling date with official teaser film. 'Prophecy', expressing the Hyundai''s latest design language in line with Hyundai''s 'Sensuous Sportiness' design philosophy. Take a look Prophecy''s a beautiful silhouette accentuated by graceful curves flowing over broad rear flanks that provide excellent aerodynamics. Upcoming to 2020 Geneva Motor Show in March.
Scheduled for delivery in 2021, the truck is actually a range extended electric vehicle, with a backup diesel engine to supplement twin battery packs. The battery packs have a combined capacity of 100 kilowatt hours and will allow for about two hours of all electric operation, according to Rosenbauer. That will cover 90% of use cases, the company said.The vehicle will likely be assigned to a fire station in Hollywood, according to the LAFD.

The dual motor, all wheel drive Leaf Nismo RC has 322hp and 640Nm of torque on tap about double what the popular Leaf has. It hits 100kmh in just 3.4 seconds (nearly twice as quick as the 2011 first gen car, which clocked at 6.9 second century sprint), but you won''t be able to verify that. The car, like the first two Leaf Nismo RCs, is not for series production. Pity.Following the introduction of the Forester e Boxer, Subaru has just unveiled the XV e Boxer. Powered by a 2 litre horizontally opposed petrol engine paired with an electric motor, the compact all wheel drive hybrid has a lithium ion battery unit mounted under its boot floor. In pure electric mode, it can reach 40kmh. The car is expected to arrive as early as the fourth quarter of this year.
Let''s face it. In India, telecom has changed livelihoods, even lives, bringing Indians closer to the world of connectivity and digitisation. Much more than any other social, governmental or corporate overture can ever hope to achieve. One now reaches out to relatives, friends, even strangers, instantly. WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, LinkedIn, E mails, the list is mind numbing. Overnight, our plumber, carpenter, painter, electrician, even the sabziwaala has become a phone number. A single call, even a missed call, leads to easy access and instant gratification. Perhaps the powers that be have found this too good to let it last and the industry is staring death in the face. Unless radical measures are taken this coming week, starting tomorrow, the average Indian shall bear the brunt, having to pay through his her nose to continue to avail mobile connectivity or lose easy access altogether.
The test vehicle of the BMW i3 was displayed in a very interesting design. At first glance it may seem exaggerated modified, but the test vehicle, with its thin tires beneath its wide fenders, signals that the situation is different from what is seen. Taped cables to the left side of the door and to the fender and the front mounted sensor tell us that the Bavarian manufacturer is testing something new and that the displayed i3 is a kind of prototype.What BMW is trying to do with this vehicle is not known for now, and it seems we need more than imagery to learn. The source of the photos reports that the test vehicle is the work of BMW ''s suspension and tire development team. More specifically, i, BMW ''s electric car division, runs the i3 for future models.
