This Qoros Model K-EV Concept is a good reminder of why concept cars are awesome. They look absolutely insane and their performance figures are as well. How much of that actually makes it to production is anyone’s guess, but the fact remains that they are an exercise in imagination and creativity. We need more of that.
Renault wanted to demonstrate their long-term commitment to staying in Formula One with a cool concept of what they envision for the series’ future. Their Renault RS 2027 Vision promises to be safer, faster, friendlier for the environment and more fun to watch. It’s a cool spaceship with wheels. We like where they’re…
1st Gear: China’s Electric Carmakers Are Scrambling To Beat Tesla
NIO, the Chinese-backed electric vehicle startup known for their mad quest to break track records with their EP9 supercar, has finally whipped out plans for a normal car for regular people. The NIO ES8 is a three-row Chinese-market-only electric SUV with room for seven.
Well, it was bound to happen at some point: Volkswagen’s third addition to its electric concept car family is the I.D. Crozz. Because it’s a crozz-over! Haaaa.
Our pals at Car Design News are at the Shanghai Auto Show, and they found that Chinese car names that are more cryptographically secure than most of your passwords.
Mercedes made a pretty bold stylistic pronouncement at the Shanghai Auto Show, where it presented a new concept car: a sleek, compact sedan it calls, imaginatively, ‘Concept A Sedan.’ The car is nicely proportioned and attractive, but to Diamler AG Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener it seems to represent a larger…
Besides the new Buick Regal wagon and a couple of insanely overpowered Dodge and Jeep products, as far as new cars and concepts went the New York Auto Show was a snoozefest. There’s a reason for this and it’s happened the last couple years too: automakers save the good shit for the Chinese show, which is in Shanghai…
Lynk & Co, the Geely venture involving Volvo-built cars that are always connected to the internet, you unlock with your phone, you can somehow share with strangers and a bunch of other buzzword-slathered and perhaps not completely thought out ideas, has a new concept car. It’s a sedan this time, and, keeping to their…
No car company has been burned worse by the implosion of diesel technology than Volkswagen, and now it looks like the company is working the hardest to divest itself from the maybe-gonna-get-banned fuel.

Luxo-tuner Startech has sliced the back off a long wheelbase Range Rover and turned it into a little monster like something between a cereal box toy and Megazord. It's wider and faster than a regular Range Rover, and since it has a "bed" you can reportedly skirt luxury taxes importing it as a commercial vehicle.
In the months leading up to the debut of the Cadillac CT6, all signs pointed to a twin-turbo V6 with a plug-in hybrid system. Only half of that came true in New York, so what happened?
The Shanghai Auto Show will do without booth pros this year. Here's why.
The Chinese auto industry is famous for its knockoffs. Hell, the whole Chinese manufacturing industry is famous for its knockoffs. These are the best clones from the recent 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.
This, my fellow members of the Working Proletariat, is what the endless joy of Communism brings us. This beast of burden, this chromed harbinger of the downfall of the bourgeoisie, this generous mass that has been handed down to us by those who are more equal than others, is the true reward for harmoniously striving…
