Good morning and welcome to our daily digest of car news from around the world, starting with …
Kia wins first-ever European Car of the Year award with EV6, beating tough competition Renault Megane E-Tech Electric and Hyundai Ioniq 5. Meanwhile, the votes of Russian jury members were not taken into account in response to the attacks on Ukraine.
Nissan introduced the Juke Hybrid before it goes on sale this summer. It uses the same transmission that already exists in the Renault Clio and Captur E-Tech versions, with a 1.6-liter engine mated to two electric motors. This is good for 25% more power than the 1.0-liter Juke turbocharged engine, with fuel economy savings of up to 20% in the combined cycle.
The new Ford Everest is shown as an off-road version of the latest Ranger pickup for the Australian market, with versions also for Asia and Africa, but not for North America and Europe. The exterior and interior have been redesigned, the interior has a portrait 10.2-inch (or 12.4-inch in platinum models) touch screen.
Lucid has revised its production targets downwards when tackling supply chain problems. Lucid originally planned to build 20,000 units in 2022. Now it is 30-40% less, and production is estimated at 12,000-14,000 cars. Despite the setback, Lucid seems to be fully implementing plans to increase its operations. It has just been announced that a new production facility will be built at the brand’s home in Saudi Arabia, while more workers will be hired in the US.
A new era for Lotus is about to come, and the first-ever SUV brand crossover will be unveiled on March 29th. A new teaser will appear on the launch date, which will familiarize with the appearance, interior and transmission. We can see subtle LED lighting, aerodynamic wheels with carbon fiber accents and digital side mirrors. Inside there are oars to change the drive modes and illumination of the switchgear, while the power transmission will have batteries with a capacity of 92-120 kW / h.
The Carrera GT already has quite a reputation as a car with significant premiums. But will this car, which once belonged to Jerry Seinfeld, break previous records? More than a week before entering the auction block, it is already $ 1.6 million and must exceed $ 2 million to set a record.
We believe our spies managed to catch a Polestar mule, possibly for a preview of the Polestar 4. It has a larger wheelbase than the XC40, with some Polestar 2 elements. It has a wide track and extended wings that roll low for an aggressive position.
