BMW: Fully-autonomous driving technology not yet available

BMW “misjudged the situation” on electric cars

BMW says that it misjudged the situation when it came to electric cars, as the German brand’s massive planned expansion into the segment with its BMW i sub brand didn’t go to schedule. Speaking to Australian media at the Frankfurt motor show today, BMW’s boss of electric mobility, Dirk Arnold, admitted the original idea for the BMW i brand of cars was to have more than just the current i3 and i8 by now...

A QLD Police officer's random act of kindness

Last week I was told of an event that helped me regain a little faith in humanity. The story went that a Queensland police officer had pulled over a car for rolling on bald tyres, but instead of giving them a defect to further compound their financial problems, he made them follow him to a tyre shop and bought them four new tyres - with his own money - and let them on their way...

Mazda SkyActiv-X review

Though it seems hard to fathom for us here in Australia, Mazda is actually a small player in the global automotive market. The Japanese brand’s dominance in Australia – as the second best-selling manufacturer – is very much an anomaly on the world stage. The point here, though, is that as a car company, Mazda’s research and development budget is not on the same scale as the likes of Toyota, Honda or Nissan...
