Honda unveils the CR-V Hybrid in China, may also come to the United States

Honda will be displaying the electrically assisted CUV in their showrooms later this year. This has been confirmed in China at least. Fresh from its debut at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, the latest hybrid CR-V will soon go on sale in Asia’s fastest growing market for hybrid vehicles.

While the engineering for the China-bound CR-V Hybrid has already been finalized, it only makes sense that Honda would be considering the US as its next important step. In the US, the Honda Accord is in fact using the same powertrain found on the newly electrified crossover.

Honda however hasn't disclosed the exact details for the CR-V hybrid’s powertrain while on its premiere. If the CRV’s hybrid specs are indeed the same as those on the Accord, we can therefore expect the electrified crossover to be running on a 143hp (107kW), 129 lb-ft (175Nm) of torque, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This will come equipped with a 1.3kWh lithium ion battery pack with a total power of 212hp (158kW) to match.

VW reveals an I.D. Crozz Concept which looks pretty cool

Volkswagen gives us a preview of what may be our future cars in the next decade or two. Their latest concept, the I.D. Crozz, is an electric crossover that the automaker unveiled after introducing the hatchback and minivan versions of the I.D.

From the looks of it, the car has a minimalistic design. The curves and creases of the body paired with sleek headlights and illuminated VW badges add to its futuristic design. A pair of all-LED taillights that extend to the rear fenders then give it a unique touch.

The engineers are really focusing on autonomous driving. When “I.D. Pilot” mode is activated, the computers will analyze everything in the car. The adaptive LED headlights will be activated, along with the interior and exterior ambient lighting. The fully autonomous mode will even retract the steering wheel into the dashboard for more cabin space.

Hi-tech Audi E-Tron Sportback concept has over 200 LED lights

Two years ago at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Audi presented the E-Tron Quattro to the public. This gave us an idea that they will soon be producing crossovers. The Quattro will be moving into production by 2018, and a year later, a coupe version of it will follow. This crossover-coupe they call the E-Tron Sportback made its debut at the Auto Shanghai in China just this week, along with two other electric concepts from competitors: the VW I.D. Crozz and the Skoda Vision E.

Similar to Volkswagen I.D. Crozz, Audi’s E-Tron Sportback also features light emitting diodes. The four-rings brand not only equips this new concept with full LED headlights and taillights. It also gets an illuminated Audi logo. Instead, it is supposed to have approximately 250 extra LEDs located around the front bumper, precisely on both sides of the corporate singleframe grille. But these lights do not only have one purpose - they are made to communicate with other cars on the road forming different light patterns - from shapes to numbers as seen on its concept video debut.

The E-Tron Sportback isn’t just about smart LEDs. At 4.9 meters long, 1.98 meters wide, and 1.53 meters tall, this coupe has a strong electric powertrain that can produce as much as 430 horsepower (320 kilowatts), and can reach a peak of 496 horsepower (370 kilowatts) when the boost mode is activated. Taking only 4.5 seconds, this little EV can accelerate up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill.

Photos of MG E-Motion Concept leaked ahead of Shanghai debut

Despite the MG E-Motion Concept set to be unveiled in a few days at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, it appears that the internet once again managed to get the upper hand. Albeit rather grainy, a set of official images showing MG’s newest four-seater coupe has been released on the World Wide Web.

Images show that the exterior appears to have a rather stylish design especially with the use of butterfly doors and a more pronounced grille in the front. Clearly inspired from that of Mercedes-Benz, the grille carries on its center the MG badge and based on the photos, appears to light up mainly due to LEDs. At the top portion and placed at the corner of the grille are the sleek headlights which look similar to the ones on Mazda. Still, the headlights give the vehicle a more high-tech look and this feel is enhanced further by having cameras instead of the usual door mirrors.

Fitted to it are the alloy two-tone wheels and if we look up, we see the thick side skirts above which is the panoramic roof. Going to the rear, viewers will likely be surprised to see what may be the biggest diffusers placed in a car. Still on this section, there are the sweptback taillights with a spoiler lip cleanly integrated. Much like the bumper in the front, the rear bumper also has the “E-Motion” lettering placed on it. This serves two purposes with the first being that it emphasizes the name of this mode. The second is that it drives home the point that the model comes with an all-electric powertrain.

LYNK & CO, through its Senior Vice President Alain Visser, gave a preview of what to expect from the brand with the preview of two new models during an exclusive event held in Shanghai. The company added that this will signal the official start of its launch to the Chinese market. After that, it will make the official premiere during the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, scheduled to begin this April 19.

An estimated 800 guests were invited to be part of the preview where VP Visser confirmed as well that the company will be offering home delivery services and online sales. However, LYNK & CO also said that it will be offering a subscription model. Through this, the company hopes it will have the flexibility of ensuring that the owner and the user experience will be on the level as that of the expectation of a new generation of customers. These new customers are different in a sense that they generally utilize smartphone app service and are accustomed to the level of convenience it offers.

During the event, VP Visser shared that with just five months as a company, it has managed to come out with two models. This proves, according to him, that it is on the way of fulfilling its promise of releasing a wide array of vehicles that display high quality, show the brand’s unique identity, and that are fitted with unparalleled connectivity and technology as standard. He went on and said that to sweeten the deal, the company will be including a lifetime warranty for each model. In addition, connectivity will have free data traffic. With this, he continued, the company is highlighting its commitment to challenge the auto industry’s traditional business practice.

Audi has been delighting fans and critics alike with teaser videos of its newest concept fitted with numerous LEDs. The German automaker is back to show off a more “substantial” preview of its latest creation – now complete with a name and a few adjacent sketches, enough to reveal its body style and a few exterior features. Ready to know more about it? Here goes.

We’ve come to know that Audi’s latest creation is called the Audi E-Tron Sportback Concept. However, despite being called a “Sportback,” we’re expecting this concept car to be a crossover-coupe combination. From the photos released by Audi themselves, we can conclude that the E-Tron Sportback Concept isn’t just a typical hatchback like the A3 Sportback as it’s something far better.

As expected (and as depicted in design teaser sketches), the concept is fitted with a set of oversized wheels. Its heavily sloped roofline ending is reminiscent of a coupe but accentuated by an interesting spoiler which features two arches on both sides. The E-Tron Sportback does without the conventional side mirrors (also an expected move), with cameras on its stead, giving the concept car a sleeker look.

Under the bonnet we find the acclaimed Rolls-Royce Ghost 6.6 litre twin turbo charged V12 engine producing 563 hp and 780 Nm of torque at just 1,500rpm.

With these numbers, the Rolls-Royce Ghost Extended Wheelbase accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.0 seconds. Still, the car is very comfortable thanks to an intelligent, four corner air suspension.

The MG 6 model, which is priced comparably with the Golf and Focus, features longer wheelbase, larger cabin space, and bigger boot. But the MG 5’s pricing makes it more competitive.
