2020-01-27 14:30. Camouflaged prototype of all-new Range Rover Sport spied ahead of expected 2022 release.

Image 1 of. 9. 27 Jan, 2020 9:15am. The new Renault Clio E-Tech supermini features a petrol-electric drive system with F1 technology. The Renault Clio E-Tech Hybrid is a vehicular Rubik’s Cube. It seems straightforward at first; it’s a small five-door hatchback that’s now offered with a full hybrid powertrain, consisting of an auto gearbox, 1.6-litre petrol engine and an electric motor to help keep emissions down and performance up. Or, to be a little more precise, CO2 of less than 90g/km (precise efficiency figures have yet to be confirmed) and power of 138bhp. And that’s all you really need to know. You don’t need to know that it has a ‘clutchless’ dog gearbox derived from Formula One tech. Nor that it has two electric motors – one driving th.

Image 1 of. 16. 25 Jan, 2020 3:00pm. The all-electric Smart EQ ForTwo has been updated for 2020, but does its limited range hold it back? The is not only is it the smallest fully on sale today (technically, the is a quadricycle, not a car) but, given that it’s available in Cabriolet form, it’s the only open top zero-emission vehicle, too. Here, we’re trying the fixed-roof two-door ‘Coupe’ version, which in its basic trim, and once the Government’s grant for plug-in vehicles is subtracted from the retail price, starts from £16,850.

We’re barely a month into 2020, yet it’s already clear that this’ll be The Year of the Carlos. The first one () is the Brazilian-born bad boy who, until recently, was the cockily confident godfather of the -- Alliance. But after jumping £9million bail (that must’ve hurt) and going on the run to sunny Beirut, he currently holds the dubious title of world’s most famous international fugitive. Never has a global motor industry executive fallen so far, so fast, so hard, so bloody painfully. The other Carlos (Tavares) is the Portuguese superstar who enjoys life as the charming and calming, less-

At the moment there are no plans to put the car into production, Nissan instead choosing to present it as a rolling test bed for technologies that may or may not make their way into its production EVs in the future. Either way, the twin battery, twin electric motor Leaf RC is a deeply impressive piece of kit and is a seriously fast and potent machine as a result.

I wish there were more cars like the . After all, a diesel plug-in hybrid offers all the cleaner, tax-busting benefits of pure-electric power for short journeys and inner-city hops, plus diesel economy when you hit the motorway. We hardly need to revisit the bad press diesel power has received in the past few years, nor highlight the declining sales it is suffering in light of legislation now clearly favouring petrol and electric cars for both private and company buyers. •Yet this is why I’m so excited to be running the E 300 de for the next six months; it offers a chance to really

2020-01-22 11:30. Both the government and car makers need to improve the UK's charging network, says Steve Fowler. I haven’t had the best experience with the UK’s EV charging network recently. If the government’s goal is to get us into electrified vehicles as soon as possible, it needs to do more than just leave it to the private sector. I’ve written to the transport secretary, Grant Shapps MP, about it, but am still awaiting a response; perhaps he’s trying to find a charger that works on the UK’s motorway network... It’s not only the government that needs to step up, though. Car makers aren’t exactly jumping through hoops to make sure one of the remaining barriers to the uptake of electric vehicles is removed. The official response from the
