Chevrolet Bolt EV will tackle US before anywhere else

The all-new Chevrolet Bolt EV is claimed by General Motors as a game changer – a crossover-style electric car with about 320 kilometres of battery range for US$30,000.

Genesis claims customer service is the next luxury battleground

Power, technology, safety and style are all expected when it comes to luxury cars, but new Korean prestige brand Genesis says customer service is the next frontier in the big buck battle. What does that mean for buyers willing to take a punt on the new marque in the early days, then? Well, in the US – where Genesis has been operating as something of a sub-brand to Hyundai for several years – the inclusions are enticing...

2016 Honda Ridgeline unibody ute debuts in Detroit

The second-generation Honda Ridgeline ute has made its debut at the 2016 Detroit auto show sporting a much more conservative and traditional design than the original.

Porsche Mission E will be a "sports car for a new era"

The future of Porsche is electric - that was the clear message from company chief Oliver Blume at the 2016 Detroit auto show. Blume addressed the media with the presentation of the flagship 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models, but while those cars would usually be enough to justify minutes of endless specifications and salesman-like rhetoric, it appeared clear that the topic on his mind was not the cars on show, but what could be parked in a well-heeled Porsche owner's garage in the coming years...
