Pininfarina Battista Electric Hypercar Is Faster Than A Fighter Jet

We may refer to the first Pininfarina-branded car, Battista, as an electric ’supercar’, but in actual fact, it transcends the supercar realm into a domain touched by only a handful of cars – the hypercar space. Yes. It is indeed a hypercar and it has a hyper price to boot. But more on that later. So, just how ‘hypercar’ is this hypercar? Well, how does 1,900 horsepower and 2,300 Nm (1,696 lb-ft!) of torque sounds? Absolute mind-bending, I would say. Continue reading Pininfarina Battista Electric Hypercar Is Faster Than A Fighter Jet

Genesis Reveals Eclectic 2-seater EV Concept Called Mint Concept

Hyundai-owned electric car marque, Genesis, has revealed a new all-electric concept called Mint Concept at this year’s New York International Auto Show. The cutesy Mint Concept is primarily a city car and a premium one at that, according to Genesis. It is a two-seater EV with extremely short front and rear overhangs, Quad Lamps front and back, a Crest Grille on its very Tesla-ish front, “signature Parabolic Line” that wraps around the entire body, a concave rear, and G-Matrix pattern for efficient cooling and airflow circulation around the battery floor.

Fisker Announced “Under $40K” “Mass Market” Electric SUV

Did anyone noticed Fisker did not make news at this year’s CES like it did last year? But a couple of months later, it suddenly dished out news that it is making “a practical, desirable and attainable” electric SUV. So how attainable are we talking about? Well, that would be a base price of below $40,000. At this point, there is nothing to show, save for a front-view render of the electric SUV that looks suspiciously like a Range Rover. As expect of such press release, it is laden with marketing talks that attempt to drive consumers’ emotion. It is not doing it for me, btw.

Meet Nathalie, An Electric Supercar That Has Range Extended By Methanol

This is Nathalie, a pretty bold and ambitious electric vehicle from German automaker Gumpert that we are obliged to call it a supercar because, 800+ HP. Both the brand and the car are somewhat complicated. Roland Gumpert was a familiar name in Audi Sports and he is also the man behind small German supercar maker, Apollo Automobile. This startup in his name is not quite an independent company; it is linked to Chinese electric mobility company, AIWAYS.

Razer‘s ingenious RGB lighting solution, Chroma, was originally conceived as a means of immersive gaming experience. But we heard that Chroma is stepping out to beyond gaming. No. It is not a Razer Chroma Toaster, or any appliance for that matter. It is much bigger than a toaster.
