What Are Electric Cars?

Electric cars run at least partially on electricity. Unlike conventional vehicles that use a gasoline or diesel-powered engine, electric cars and trucks use an electric motor powered by electricity from batteries or a fuel cell. Not all electric vehicles (or “EVs”) work the same way. “Plug-in hybrids” offer both a gasoline or diesel engine and an electric motor: the motor is powered by a battery that can be recharged by plugging in. Other EVs forgo liquid fuels entirely, operating exclusively on electricity (“battery electric” vehicles). Still others power an electric motor by…

Is this the world’s most beautiful car?

Aston Martin set out to do one thing really well, and with the DB11, it has. By Matthew Phenix I generally despise first-person car reviews. Particularly when the vehicle in question is expensive, or fast, or both, these stories can quickly devolve into oily billets-doux of the writer’s preternatural giftedness behind the wheel.

All information about the Polestar 1

Presentation: High demand for the Polestar 1 What AMG is for Mercedes is Polestar for Volvo . So it was at least so far, because from now on Polestar is a completely independent brand. Under the direction of Thomas Ingenlath (former chief designer at Volvo) Polestar will be redesigned in the coming years to a pure electric label, but the usual performance should not be left behind. The fact that the brand is serious is illustrated by the first model, the Polestar 1, which is based on the Volvo platform SPA. The white coupé is still a study , but in 2019 the debut album is…

Deep Dive: All-New 2019 Land Rover Defender: An Icon, Reinvented
