New Mazda Cars Will Stop if Driver Suffers Health Problem

Hyundai is Looking for an Edge

Hyundai has officially entered into the running to create solid-state batteries. The field may be crowded, but we like their odds. The race to develop the solid-state batteries for vehicles is a heated one with many automakers working hard to create them. Right now, Toyota, Honda, Fisker, Nissan, BMW, and Volkswagen are all aiming to develop these batteries for the EV models they sell and Hyundai has joined the race. By partnering and investing in a company that’s based in Massachusetts, Hyundai is hoping to have these batteries form Ionic Materials in the near future to add them to the new EV models they’ve been working on, hopefully ahead of the rest of the crowd.

The TDI Models are Making a Comeback

If you thought the TDI models offered in the US were dead and never to return, you might actually be wrong in some cases. The Volkswagen models that are offered for sale were thought to be only those that run on gasoline or use hybrid powertrains after the scandal that took place nearly two years ago. While the vehicles offered with the GTI engines and the regular gasoline engines are great to drive, this has left us longing for the old performance of the TDI models that we loved on the road for several years.

2015 Volkswagen Beetle: An Icon Modernized

The Beetle has been around for decades, although it spent a number of years on the shelf as a car that no longer gained the same interest as a new vehicle after its first time round many years ago. Those old Beetles ran on very little mechanics and offered a huge amount of fuel efficiency with very few actual features to enjoy. Still, the thought of owning a Beetle, especially one that was a convertible made many buyers flock to pick them up when they were new and then once again as the original owners sold them when their families were growing. Many Beetles of old are still prowling the streets and make fantastic cars for a fun project as they don’t require a lot of work to have them running and allowing owners to have a great time cruising around in them.
