TEST DRIVE: The Surprisingly Wonderful 40 MPG Nissan Versa Note

Comments Off on TEST DRIVE: The Surprisingly Wonderful 40 MPG Nissan Versa Note

The Versa handled the back roads smoothly, and what struck us most was how well-made the little car felt. The steering wheel has the feel of a much more expensive car, and the vehicle comes with navigation, push start button, and all-around exterior vehicle camera to help you see what’s happening on all sides while parking. Perhaps our favorite little add-on was the seat extender for short or long legs in the driver’s seat, which makes the Versa workable for a variety of people; something that can be a tall order for some small cars with limited seating positions.

Comments Off on New All Electric Peugeot Concept Can Do 360 Degree Helicoptor Rotations

The Peugeot 1001 is an all electric concept vehicle that — if it becomes a reality — would prove to be a lot of fun to drive in the city . The vehicle runs on 8 small electric motors , attached to four “wheels” — the wheels are actually spheres — and can rotate 360 degrees around itself like a helicopter. The car is designed for a person taking small trips, probably around a city , who needs to move quickly and nimbly around obstacles — like yellow cabs and bicycles .

Comments Off on Volvo Bringing Updated Electric C30 To Detroit, Will Start Trials in 2011

Last September, Volvo introduced a proof of concept version of its all-electric C30 compact car. That car was more of a novelty than anything else; but now Volvo has done up the interior and added a complete set of instruments to bring the C30 EV to the prototype stage of a distant production version. They will be debuting the prototype at next month’s Detroit Auto Show, and plan on producing at least 50 of them for a group of “selected users” to start test driving in 2011
