805-hp DS E-Tense prototype previews French brand’s electric performance ambitions

My Blog
[ad_1] Stellantis premium brand DS has shown it can build vehicles capable of competing with German offerings, at least when it comes to appearance and technology. Now the French marque wants to take on its rivals in the electric performance arena. DS on Monday presented the E-Tense Performance prototype, which it described as a rolling laboratory for electric performance technology. The prototype is an evolution of the E-Tense electric sports car concept unveiled at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. The styling and technology have, naturally, evolved since then, with power doubling to 805 hp, made possible by a dual-motor powertrain developed using lessons learned from DS's successful Formula E program.

Next-gen 7-Series’ electric version spotted

Next-gen 7-Series’ electric version spotted

My Blog
[ad_1] A prototype for BMW's next-generation 7-Series has been spotted again. The tester is for a battery-electric version that's likely to feature some styling elements distinct to the rest of the 7-Series lineup, like a sealed-off grille. It may also have a unique name, such as "i7." Other shots show prototypes with internal-combustion engines. 2023 BMW i7 (7-Series) spy shots - Photo credit: S.

[ad_1] Hyundai recently revealed two restomods of important models from its past with electric powertrains. Over the weekend, the automaker unveiled an EV concept based on the first-generation Grandeur. Launched in 1986, the Grandeur was Hyundai's first attempt at a flagship luxury sedan, setting the stage for today's Genesis luxury brand. The Grandeur EV restomod retains most of the original car's boxy styling, but with subtle tweaks to the grille, side moldings, exterior mirrors, and wheels.

2022 GMC Sierra 1500, 2022 Audi A3 and S3, 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades: The Week In Reverse

My Blog
[ad_1] We drove the 2022 Audi A3 and S3; Ford revealed a new Bronco Everglades is coming; and GMC introduced the 2022 Sierra 1500. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority. We drove the 2022 Audi A3 and S3 on Colorado mountain roads, which was the ideal setting for these smart, small sport sedans. Both cars feel tied down to the road, and while the S3 gets more power and better brakes, it's still more of a canyon carver than a track machine. GMC unveiled the 2022 Sierra 1500 with new high-end ATX4 and Denali Ultimate trims. The $80,000 Denali Ultimate comes loaded with all the equipment and features a luxurious interior with Mount Denali topographical maps etched into the dash and seats. The ATX4 improves upon…
