Renault Will Introduce The Twingo Z.E. This Year

January 21st, 2020 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

In last week’s press release about Renault's 2019 sales success, there was a stealth announcement about the introduction of the Twingo Z.E. “For the group, 2020 will mark a new stage in its electric offensive with the launch of Twingo Z.E. and the deployment of its new E-Tech hybrid and plug-in hybrid offers.” Only a few obsessive followers realized that this was news

January 15th, 2020 | by Carlo Ombello

It's taken a long time, but Italy's electric car market is finally starting to take off. Official figures released by UNRAE (the association of foreign carmakers in Italy) confirm 10,566 battery electric cars were sold in the Bel Paese in the 12 months of 2019, doubling 2018 sales and consolidating a trend of exponential growth started two years ago.

I was certain I would be trading in my diesel A2 with an electric A2 soon enough

September 24th, 2019 | by Jesper Berggreen

The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, IAA (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung), was a strange and different experience compared to the last time I was there. The road trip in itself was a +1000 mile long and very satisfying experience in my Tesla Model 3, which I will dedicate another post to cover. In the following article, though, I will try to put into words the puzzling buzz of change in the realm of passenger cars from a consumer perspective
