Bringing an electric SUV into the mainstream automobile market has been a challenge even for Tesla.

Every other auto brand including the big wigs like Ford, Mercedes and BMW has been pushing it towards the next five years to make all their cars electric.

The 5.0-liter engine is naturally aspirated without any industry made tweaks, which allows it to produce a solid 480 horsepower combined with 569 Nm of torque clocked at 4,600rpm. The automobile brand has purposefully designed the car in such a way that it doesn’t compete directly with its super-powerful variants like the GT350 or the GT350R. They are still the top of the line models which provides them the much-needed space to price the new Mustang at a decent price range.

The good news is they have not completely abandoned the new car because it received some components from the higher end GT350. The Tremec 3160 six-speed manual gearbox is one of the many additions which allows the car to touch the highest level of torque and performance effortlessly. It also features the same cooler system combined with a short-throw shifter as well as the dual disc clutch found in the Mustang GT edition. For the more demanding buyer, a 10-speed automatic transmission edition is also available although it will cost much higher and made for serious Mach 1 admirers.

It is capable of producing about 5.1 kW of power paired with a 24-volt battery that would enable people to move around within a specific range.

Improved Engine System

In a teardown video of the vehicle, the Mazda MX-30 it has been confirmed that the new vehicle will be equipped with a motor-assist system. The controlled braking and additional improvements will allow the car to achieve the highest level of acceleration. Despite all the good things about the new mild hybrid edition, it is still far from being an eco-friendly, fuel-efficient vehicle when compared to the fully electric edition launched in Europe. The lack of adoption in Japan and most other markets have been keeping automobile makers from suddenly going all-electric as it might disrupt the existing ecosystem.

Besides, most major brands are aiming to bring in multiple EVs only by 2025 and there is still time to reach that deadline.

2021 Toyota Corolla Apex First Drive Impressions

The 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex is an exciting new launch even though the automobile manufacturer is not going to bring in any major power train changes or designs.

Despite the fact that it is pretty much similar to the outgoing model, they have tried to make it stand apart from the crowd and we should appreciate their effort. Comparing the car with its immediate competitors, many buyers might feel disappointed but still there is more to it than what meets the eye.

The pricing according to local dealers begins approximately at $19,925 but delivery charges and based on the variant the buyer chooses, it could drastically vary. When the team had the opportunity to drive the car, they had mixed reactions and many of them wondered that Toyota wanted to go out of the box. They wanted to do something substantial but ended up with a mediocre execution and the best way to overcome it is possible only if they could tweak it all in the 2022 edition.

More than just a visual upgrade

The good news is, the 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex did come up with a great job of pushing it beyond the visual upgrades. With the inclusion of the new springs used in the vehicle, the overall body weight and the versatility of the sedan has been greatly improved. The handling balance has also been improved made possible by modifying or upgrading several components on the inside. The shock absorbers ensure a smoother ride when compared to the Corolla edition available in stores now.

The manufacturer has also pushed it further by providing a unique tuning for the power-steering system. It helps completely eradicating any kind of rollover when steering the vehicle in tight corners at top speed. Besides, the overall super smooth experience on the road would assure any buyer that they have invested in a Corolla that people have come to love over the years. However, the same cannot be said for the shock absorbers when the road conditions are really bad and it couldn’t cope up with such demanding situations.

The car does share its similarities with a Honda Civic Si or the Volkswagen GTI. The brakes are standard as found in other models in the same line-up and on par with what Toyota continues to offer in their cars. Overall, it does justify the affordable pricing range but doesn’t convince buyers to upgrade an existing car or not go for one of their competitor’s models.

Unique and Stylish Design

When compared to the sedan and the Honda e edition revealed by the manufacturer, the new Honda SUV eConcept crossover is strikingly different and stylish in its own way. The longer bonnet and the aggressive front lining paves way for an electric car that most would love. It also has LED headlights which merge into the grille while the design doesn’t have four doors.

The battery pack is expected to be larger than 35.5 kWh but no official word is out as the car is still in its early design stage and yet to go into full production. The automaker is expected to talk more about their electric cars lineup in the motor shows to be held next year.

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost Extended Introduces a New Level of Luxury

Building a Rolls Royce or buying one is actually the next to the impossible task that the company has been pulling off for decades now.

While it is not one among the mainstream cars available, it still continues to be a status symbol. Rather than resting on their laurels, the company has decided to go the extra mile and redefine the concept of luxury in the rear seat with some insanely good additions to it.

In the latest set of new marketing materials, the automobile brand has officially revealed the exquisite look of the 2021 Ghost. According to the company, this one is the surprising entry-level variant that they could offer buyers at an affordable budget. However, it is definitely not going to fit in your pocket unless you are uber-rich. The overall design language used in the vehicle is less sharp and much more seamless than in the previous edition. The designers have also gone for a cleaner finish on the rear seats, making it much more comfortable and luxurious than it ever was.

Constructing on a New Platform

Every new model gets a huge update on the platform. The luxury sedan of this generation is being built on an aluminum spaceframe chassis. It helps significantly improve the legroom available for rear-seat passengers. The change in the platform has also contributed to a massive difference in the wheelbase because the new car has an increased base by six inches while the length is increased by seven inches. The improved luxury features found in the new Ghost Rolls Royce sedan have obviously added to the weight of the car but they have managed to split it across the car that it doesn’t affect performance. The overall weight increase is about 102 pounds.

The acceleration and top speed capabilities of the car continue to be on par with the luxurious brand’s many other options. It can easily go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.8 seconds. For a car that doesn’t compromise on luxury, having such a powerful powertrain on the inside further adds up to the value it provides. The maximum top speed is pegged at 155 miles per hour which is more than enough for long drives and to simply experience comfort even when you are on the road for extended periods of time. The vehicle is aimed at people who like longer models and prefer to drive in specific roads where such a car could be driven comfortably.

The biggest and most notable change in the lot is the upgraded 4.0-liter V-8 engine. The engine now produces a solid 523 horsepower which is at least 54hp more than the previous edition. While testing these numbers in the road is quite difficult and a race track is a minimum requirement, it still is impressive to see the automobile brand deliver some big numbers. Additionally, it has also been confirmed that they are working on a new Stealth Edition which will have black accents and go for more subtle looks when compared to the base model.

Exciting Performance, New Design

The 2021 Mercedes AMG GT can comfortably accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds. With some tweaks made to the design and the improved powertrain, the car was able to reduce the acceleration time by 0.2 seconds. It may not sound like much in the normal world but when it comes to sporty editions such as the one tuned by AMG, it is a huge deal and buyers would willingly pay more to have access to these improvements.

Some of the unique changes make it possible to justify the price tag and the Mercedes AMG combination. In this particular model, it includes the adaptive dampers combined with large front brakes and an electronic limited-slip differential. For sporty drivers, the Race mode is going to further boost performance and push the car to its maximum horsepower while there is also a lithium-ion starter battery to ensure the car starts without any ignition issues of the sort.

The Stealth Edition is yet another improvement that takes some of the elements from the AMG Exterior Night package. On the inside, the 2021 Mercedes AMG GT has leather seats, carbon fiber or choice of material for the dashboard and maintains a dark tint all over. The edition’s official logo has been printed on the dashboard to showcase that it belongs to a specific category and is owned by the select few.
