The future is electric.

Back to the future I: Meet MARTY, who has not come back to us from the 80’ies but is a rather recent member of our society. The brainchild of Stanford University and Renovo Motors is an electric DeLorean, that also drives and drifts autonomously. So what about time travel?

Battery race is on: Renovo Motors joins the race to become the Formula E’s next sole battery supplier. The Californian start-up thus competes with Croatian Rimac and British William’s (we reported). Renovo might team up with Mahindra to get their foot in the door.

Patenting progress: While the number of conventional engines stagnates, electric and hybrid engines made for 85 percent of patents filled last year, says the Center of Automotive Management (CAM).

The new Chevy Volt will be way better than its predecessor, at least if one believes GM’s powertrain director Larry Nitz. The new generation is said to take into account user behaviour and experiences gathered by the company. However, more details will only follow at a later date.

Review Kia Soul EV: Antuan Goodwin took the Kia Soul EV for a spin and finds it to be on the rather “torquey” side but “extremely quiet” at both city and high speed on the other hand while staying firmly “planted” on the road.
