What you need to know
Audi doesn’t want you to think of the E-tron GT as just another EV. Instead, this is the second in Audi’s new E-tron line, which also includes the all-electric E-tron SUV that will go on sale in 2019. The E-tron GT is a four-door performance sports coupe with 22-inch wheels that can hit 62 miles per hour in around 3.5 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 149.1 mph. The power comes from a big lithium-ion battery that holds more than 90 kWh of electricity that gets sent to two synchronous motors that provide 434 kW (590 hp) to “ensure performance fit for a sports car,” Audi says. And yes, two motors means that the E-tron GT is a Quattro. With all of these features, Lichte called the eventual production version E-tron GT concept, due in around two years, “The new member of the Audi sport family.”
It is not out yet, but you know you want one!
o be frank, there is no way in hell that I need 715 hp in a new car. But then again, check out t this Aston Martin
Again, I don’t need this. Nor should I be trusted behind the wheel of one of these things. But it is nice to look at!
And if you want the details, here is the link for you!
Go for it!
Sooner or later, it had to happen – a Tesla business model copy cat. It is the Uniti from Sweden. The Uniti is an electric powered city car that promotes its earth friendly attitude
Uniti said its ambition is not to be the best in the world, but the best for the world.
It looks like this
Forbes offers a positive review.
Expect more small electric cars like this over the next few years, especially if battery tech gets better and generating costs continue to fall.
You cannot get a Lusic Air … yet. But you can get a peek at one. Here it is
Futuristic? No doubt.
Lucid Air is an attempt to out Tesla Tesla. Here is a post on taking it for a test drive.
I do like the sky roof!
We are talking about a $3 mil luxury item
So you may be self-made, but do you also own
… ships, houses, and private planes?
If not, back to the Chevy!
My own take — even if I had the resources to burn on an item like this, I would feel queezy about parking it at the food store . Of course, if I had $3 mil to burn on a luxury car, perhaps I would not be driving to the food store.
But I like driving to the food store!
Of course not. No one needs this car.
After all, it will set you back over $300,000.
So you should not want to read about it., right? You should automatically pass over a link to a review of how this car performed on the road. Right?
Apparently, lots of people will not. They will check out the Bentley. At least, that is what Business Insider thinks. That is why Business Insider offers the review that I link to – to get your attention. It matters not that a review of a Bentley has nothing to do with getting “inside business”.
So what is it about this product category that captures our attention? It is less the thing than they´symbol of the thing. It is the reward for status that we believe we deserve. And it is human nature to crave status among our peers.
It is the “deserve” part that proves to be tricky. Does Donald Trump, for example, deserve the status that he gets from being president? We might disagree on that point. But we would probably agree that not deserving it robs the status of its pleasure. Perhaps that is why Trump has a tantrum whenever he is exposed as a liar or a philanderer or a cheat (did the Stormy Daniels news story, for example, lead to Trump starting a trade war?)
Which, of course, takes us back to the Bentley. It may not be the reward that you crave for the status you deserve. But I am willing to bet that you crave other such rewards. We all do!
And how about this?
Who does not want to be celebrated for something great?
This sentence might get you thinking
Naysayers abound, but magnetic induction and resonant coupling is not just possible on a large scale—it’s inevitable.
What does that mean?
Imagine a future where you can charge your electric vehicles while in motion using a charging mechanism built into the road on which it drives. Where the electrical grid is no longer reliant on power lines, utility poles, or expensive transformers and underground cables. A future where power companies stop chopping down trees that threaten nearby power lines.
