Natural Development | Cars Made Of Grass?

You might question my sanity if I suggest that building a car out of grass might be the future for car design – but stick with me on this one. First let me introduce Greg Abbott; an American who is professionally known as Reverend Gadget, an engineer and fabricator who …

Share-A-Car | The New Car-Sharing Rental Scheme In Paris

Paris is hoping to clear its streets with its first ‘car-sharing’ scheme. The new Autolib system is hoped to be a vehicle equivalent of the Velib bicycle rental-service, albeit an improved version. The scheme will be piloted for two-months in the hope of receiving some positive results; offering Parisians the …

Speedy Changes | Should The Speed Limit Be Changed?

A new 80mph speed limit is in the pipeline, but who will the new announcements (along with the increased amount of urban areas reduced to 20mph limits) benefit? That is, if indeed they benefit anyone at all!
The main supporting argument is well illustrated by Edmund King, president of the AA, …

Cutting CO2 Emissions | Why Should We Do It?

You just can’t get away from the importance of CO2 emissions when you are thinking of cars. As the UK and European governments concentrate on reducing green house gasses the motor industry focus on ways to reduce the CO2 emissions of their cars.

Each manufacturer is trying to reduce their overall …

Auto Express Awards | Volkswagen Scoops Inaugural Green Award

So, unless you lived under a rock last month, you’ll have heard about the action that Greenpeace took against Volkswagen. Greenpeace claims that VW is “using its huge political muscle to lobby against key environmental laws” despite making claims that it wants to be “the most eco-friendly car automaker in the …

It’s All About Being Green | Mercedes-Benz Launch Green Dealer Initiative

Everywhere you turn nowadays, it is all about being green. Last month Greenpeace were on Volkswagen’s case about their green credentials, and it seems that no manufacturer is able to escape the influence of our newly developed global conscience. This is, of course, good, although fans of hugely uneconomic engines that belch out emissions …

Product Of The Day | Awesome £300 VW Camper!

It can be hard being a VW Camper addict. The cute vintage campervans are not only highly sort after and expensive, but they do have an unfortunate ability to rust to high heaven and fall apart without even the slightest provocation. They are the sort of draw on your time and resources that …

Electric Cars | Patent Filed To Recharge EV Cars in 5 Minutes

There are many different factors that are currently holding back the electric car market from going full throttle ahead. Range is one, not to mention certain practicality issues and the installation of charging points nationwide. Another point, and perhaps one of the biggest obstacles in the road, is the fact that …

Ooh Hello | Jaguar Reveals New Hybrid Supercar, The C-X75, Will Be Built In UK

Have you seen the Jaguar C-X75 before? Surely you must have? It is the £700,000 supercar that was prancing around Paris all October, and which is likely to finally shake of the last shackles of hybrid cars being associated with utterly middle-class Prius’s and a certain deathly dull humdrum.
Getting technical…
If you have somehow missed …

Combo Vehicles | The Geely McCar Combines Scooter and Car

There is something incredibly futuristic about the combination of a scooter and a car. It speaks of something from the Batman films (although, granted, nowhere near as cool as it would be if the caped crusader had turned his millions of dollars and obsessive attention to them!), or maybe it reminds me a little bit of Thunderbird …
