Tesla’s dominance in the EV market was reconfirmed in Europe, where the Model Y secured the title of the overall best-seller in September with 29,367 units. With an increase in sales of 227 percent compared to the same month last year, the Model Y outsold popular nameplates by a large margin, including the VW Golf in its home market in Germany.

The Tesla Model Y was the only EV in the top 10 sales chart for September, with four spots occupied by superminis and three spots by SUVs. Still, it comfortably beat the Peugeot 208 (19,601 units), the Dacia Sandero (17,733 units), the Skoda Octavia (17,226 units) and the Toyota Yaris (16,275 units) in the top 5. Those were closely followed by the VW T-Roc (16,048 units), the VW Golf (16,042 units), the Renault Clio (15,981 units), the Nissan Qashqai (15,852 units), and the aging Fiat/Abarth 500 (15,669 units).

The 2023 Lotus Eletre seen from a front quarter angle
  • The 2023 Lotus Eletre is expected to cost around $100,000 when it comes to the U.S. next year.
  • Lotus’ first SUV and second electric car is quick but out of character for the brand.

Lotus cars are famous for very little. That is, they’ve long been known for their astonishingly light weights. Lotus founder Colin Chapman famously told a reporter the key to building a successful car was to “simplify, then add lightness.”

There’s a stat missing from the spec sheet of the 2023 Lotus Eletre. The company won’t say how much it weighs.

The 2023 Lotus Eletre in profile

A Lotus Electric SUV

The missing figure makes sense when you consider just what the latest Lotus is. The Eletre fits into two heavy categories: It’s an SUV, and it’s electric. Electric cars, for the uninitiated, tend to weigh a great deal more than gas-powered cars. The materials used in their batteries are called heavy metals

Truck accidents can affect your life and the lives of those around you. The emotional turmoil can be huge and prolonged if you or a loved one suffered an injury in a truck accident. 

If a truck is driving too fast and hits you, there are some things you can do to handle the fallout. You and your family may be entitled to compensation for the financial and emotional costs that result from a truck accident. Speeding truck accidents have specific details and formalities that only an expert should handle. For this reason, it’s important to have a truck accident attorney on your side.

The Physical Aftermath

Most people are familiar with the physical aftermath of a car accident. But what about when a truck is involved? The results can be devastating when a truck accident is caused by speeding. Truck accidents often result in serious injuries, and hospitalization

The thought of starting a family and having children, or extending your existing family is usually a happy time for most couples, filled with joy and anticipation at the thought of bringing new life into the world.  However some couples can have problems conceiving, and this can occur even when they have already had children.

There is often peer pressure on people to start a family whether it’s from parents, family or friends, and this can increase already existing feelings of stress and anxiety and have a negative effect on the couple.  If you are struggling to get pregnant then you should consult your doctor so that they can rule out any underlying health conditions that may be the cause.

Getting pregnant naturally is not always possible for some couples and they may need help in the form of IVF.  Unless you are able to pay for

The second-gen Nissan Juke has been around since 2019 but it still looks pretty fresh. For the 2023 model year in Australia, Nissan decided to equip the non-electrified Juke with some of the small updates recently introduced by the Juke Hybrid in Europe, while increasing the prices a little bit.

First of all, the small SUV is now wearing the updated Nissan emblem which looks simpler and more discreet with less chrome. There is also the addition of the Ceramic Grey and the Magnetic Blue (replacing the Vivid Blue) shades in the color palette, and new 17-inch alloy wheel designs for specific trims.

A Tesla Model 3 drives on a wet road. We see the car from a rear quarter angle, facing to our left and driving away from us. It is medium blue and kicking up water from its tires.Tesla CEO Elon Musk this week said the company plans to develop a new, next-generation electric vehicle that “will probably be about half the cost of the 3 and Y platform.” The news came as something of a surprise and requires some explanation.

What he said, what he didn’t say, and who he said it to make the news potentially confusing.

Cost Isn’t Price

First things first: This doesn’t mean there’s a $30,000 Tesla coming anytime soon. It doesn’t rule one out, but it’s unlikely for several reasons.

Musk said the cost of the platform would be lower. That doesn’t mean the price of the car will be that low. The news is being read by car shoppers, who are concerned with the sticker prices of new cars. But Musk was speaking to investors, who are concerned with the cash flow of the company that builds them.

He was almost

BMW has detailed pricing and specs for its new entry electric vehicle, based on the next-generation X1 small SUV.

The BMW iX1 xDrive30 will cost $82,900 before on-road costs when it hits Australia in the first quarter of 2023 – in either xLine and M Sport trim levels.

It will line up against competitors including the Tesla Model Y ($72,300 to $96,700), Mercedes-Benz EQA ($78,500 to $96,900), and Volvo XC40 Recharge ($72,990 to $79,490).

Stylistically the iX1 stands apart from the regular X1 petrol range with its distinctive take on the now-unnecessary kidney grille, and bright blue highlights on the bumpers and side skirts.


Petrol X1 range

  • BMW X1 sDrive18i: $53,900
  • BMW X1 xDrive20i: $65,900

Electric iX1 range

  • BMW iX1 xLine: $82,900
  • BMW iX1 M Sport: $82,900

All prices exclude on-road costs.


The iX1 xDrive30 has dual-motor electric all-wheel drive, with combined maximum power and torque outputs

More news from the 2022 Petronas Grand Prix of Malaysia at Sepang International Circuit (SIC). One of Hammy the Dirty Badger’s friends whispered in his ear that Malaysian racer Syarifuddin Azman, better known as Damok, will be making the move to Moto3 for the 2023 MotoGP.

The news is as yet unconfirmed, with Damok currently racing for Team Monlau Motul in the 2022 FIM JuniorGP championship, where he stands fourth in the riders’ standings. Damok will be racing at the Malaysia MotoGP this weekend as a wildcard entry in Moto3, with VisionTrack Racing Team.

There were also Moto3 wildcard rides for Damok in Jerez and Catalunya, Spain, and in Portimao, Portugal. It is not known whether Damok will join VisionTrack or move to another Moto3 team. In 2022, Damok’s dream of competing in the Moto3 class were dashed due to being unable to find a sponsor.

Great Wall Motor will launch more than 50 electrified and electric vehicles by 2025 as it plans to become a leading global player in so-called ‘new energy vehicles’.

It says a number of these vehicles are already in advanced stages of design and development or already on sale in China.

In addition to an expansion of its new energy vehicle line-up – a term referring to hybrids, plug-in hybrids and battery-electric vehicles – it also plans to open its first zero-carbon emission factory in 2023 and is testing its first hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles.

As part of its 2035 development plan announced earlier this year, the Chinese Government aims to have 50,000 FCEVs on its roads by 2025 and is providing subsidies to manufacturers developing FCEV technology, therefore encouraging GWM to throw its hat in the ring.

The company said
