Honda E: Type R version ruled out

Yet-to-be-released top-end versions of the Honda E electric hatchback will likely have more high-tech features instead of extravagant power figures, a wild bodykit and Nurburgring-tuned handling. Kohei Hitomi, project leader for the E, told Autocar a Type R variant "is not the way to go with the E".

2020 Alpina B3 Touring revealed: Still want that M3 wagon?

Alpina has revealed its latest worked-over BMW, the B3 Touring, with sights set on filling a void BMW M has consistently refused to fill. Based on the garden-variety 3 Series Touring, the B3 Touring is powered by an S58 3.0-litre inline-six turbocharged petrol engine making 340kW and 700Nm. That means it's actually the first 3 Series to get the M3's new engine. It's put to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS concept revealed

Mercedes-Benz has used the biennial Frankfurt motor show to premiere the electrified Vision EQS concept car, an obvious riposte to the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S. The company says this highly symbolic concept not only previews some of the design, drivetrain and manufacturing decisions that shape its next generation of products, but at a philosophical level offers “an outlook on future large electric luxury saloons by the brand”.
