Ford’s President of North America Kumar Galhotra revealed that Lincoln will make use of the EV platform employed by the Mustang-inspired SUV to create its own electric utility vehicle. Galhotra pointed out that the two models will “absolutely” be distinct from each other at the Autonomotive News World Congress. More specifically Lincoln’s EV will retain the “quiet luxury” values of the brand, whereas the 2020 Ford electric SUV is expected to feature a more aggressive design. “You can make beautiful vehicles in different ways,” Galhotra said. “The BEV technology gives us so much freedom to sculpt that vehicle exactly how we want it. We’re going to create elegant Lincoln BEVs.” However, Galhotra didn’t say when exactly Lincoln is going to launch it in the market, adding only that it will feature a quiet interior and user-friendly controls. “You have a lot more flexibility,” he said. “It’s not … [Read more...] about Lincoln To Offer ‘Elegant’ Electric SUV Based On Mustang-Inspired Crossover
Ask almost any BMW enthusiast which 3 Series generation is best and the answer will almost always be “E46“. It’s obviously not the only good generation of 3 Series but the E46 is often regarded as the finest driving 3 Series in history, for its near-perfect blend of composure and compliance. It also still felt remarkably pure and communicative, despite being comfortable and refined. It’s a masterpiece, truly. So the idea of snatching one up that’s basically brand new is a very tempting idea. This 2002 E46 BMW 330i sedan is currently up for sale on eBay and it’s basically a time-capsule back to the early ’00s. That’s because, despite being almost twenty years old, it only has 9,600 miles. That’s less than 570 miles per year. So to call it fresh would be a drastic understatement. One look at the body, interior, engine bay, trunk or anywhere else really, only solidifies that notion. It looks minty fresh, as if it just rolled off … [Read more...] about This 2002 E46 3 Series is basically a time-capsule: But is it worth the money?
The BMW X1 isn’t exactly high on the BMW-enthusiast’s favorites list. While a good car in it’s own right, the X1 is a front-wheel drive-based crossover that sits at the lowest rung of the brand’s SUV ladder. So it’s not exactly the most exciting car in the Bavarian stable. Still, in the segment in plays in, it’s a great option, as it just made Car and Driver’s 10Best list. For the Subcompact Luxury SUV segment, C&D named the BMW X1 as the best in the segment. Which is actually quite the impressive feat, considering that almost all of its competitors are newer. And the new ones that have debuted after it are all quite good. To win this award, the X1 had to take down the Jaguar E-Pace, Lexus UX and the very popular Volvo XC40. The BMW X1 took its competition down not with flash or pizzazz but with quality and execution. For instance, its 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder can’t be considered a powerhouse with only 238 hp but … [Read more...] about BMW X1 lands on Car and Driver’s 10Best list
