India is promoting the use of electric and hybrid vehicles to save the air. Although infrastructure for the use of such vehicles is at a nascent stage, an increasing number of new car buyers are considering electric vehicles. Hybrid vehicles are a good alternative too, but what is shying away customers is the prices post-GST, that have made hybrid vehicles expensive. But one company, nestled away in the industrial area of Bangalore, Whitefield, has come up with an ingenious solution to turn any vehicles to a hybrid one. Wait, what? Shalendra Gupta, Co-Founder & CFO, Altigreen Propulsion Labs That's right, Altigreen, a startup based in Bangalore has come up with something called the Hybrid Power … [Read more...] about Designed In India, Prototyped In India, Made in India — Shalendra Gupta, Co-Founder & CFO, Altigreen

But it's not coming soon. The next-generation Mercedes-Benz C-Class made its official debut earlier this week , bringing technologies and styling inspired by the S Class Sedan . A major selling point for the new premium sedan is expected to be the fully electrified engine range, though the absence of six- and eight-cylinder engines might be a drawback for some customers. According to a new report, a battery-powered model could join the lineup in a few years to allure a new wave of clients. Autocar reports a zero tailpipe emission C-Class is set to be introduced but it won’t come until 2024. It will ride on a brand new platform, different from the MRA that underpins the new C-Class and S-Class, and different from the firm’s MEA electric vehicle architecture.

The latest-generation Corvette that came on stream in last year's IMSA Sportscar Championship will be raced by Oliver Gavin and Antonio Garcia in the eight-hour WEC race in Portugal on April 4. The entry provides further confirmation of Chevrolet's intent to return to the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2021 after skipping last year's rescheduled edition of the French enduro as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Looks good but has close to zero percent chances of happening. The new Nissan Qashqai introduced a sharper design for the global compact crossover and brought tech upgrades on all fronts. The most powerful version of the Rogue Sport’s European brother has 187 horsepower (140 kilowatts) and 243 pound-feet (330 Newton-meters) of torque. While decent, this output is nowhere near the potential of modern performance SUVs. We haven’t heard anything about a sportier version of the new Qashqai yet. While a slightly more powerful model seems possible in the future, we highly doubt there will be a full-blown Nismo variant. That doesn’t mean we can’t dream of a Qashqai Nismo, right?
