BMW i4 Rendered As 435-Mile Electric Sedan

The BMW i3 hatchback and i8 sports car will soon be joined by a third vehicle in the growing “i” range. Previewed by the i Vision Dynamics Concept, which had a range of 373 miles, the i4promises to be the first mass-market, mainstream EV from BMW. Though we don’t know what the final product will resemble, this new rendering gives us an idea of what to expect.

This is what the BMW i4 could look like if of when it reaches production. Most of the same styling cues from the I Vision Dynamics Concept carry over, admittedly, but it’s a more realized, and more production-ready vehicle than its concept counterpart.

2019 Jeep Renegade Revealed With Subtle Facelift

A grand total of two images Jeep is willing to share for the time being. Following a teaser photo released earlier this week, the mildly facelifted 2019 Renegade has made its debut at the Torino Motor Show. This is the European version of the petite crossover, although its American counterpart is expected to feature just about the same styling tweaks.

Here’s what has changed. The headlights have a more modern look and the front bumper has been redesigned by gaining a new lower fascia. The side lights mounted on the front fenders are now white instead of orange, probably to go along better with the updated headlights. It’s worth mentioning the images shared so far are depicting the upper-spec Limited trim, so lesser versions won’t be as nice as this.

Used Car Market Shows Remarkable Resilience

The used car market continues to show remarkable resilience with values of two-year-old ex-PCP cars in May 2018 retaining 61% of their value new, a figure unchanged from May last year. Used car search company Cazana said the May performance was one point lower than April, which was reasonable considering the increased numbers of these PCPs car returning to the used car market.

Cazana added that diesel values were holding up well despite negative coverage and falling new diesel car sales. Diesel registrations fell for the 14th consecutive month, down 23.6% in May. In comparison to May 2018, there has been stability for ex PCP and privately-owned cars that have covered 36k mileage. Pricing has remained at 56% or original cost new mirroring the price point in May 2017 and a 1% uplift on the April 2018 data.

Nissan Reveals A Duo Of Camper Vans In Spain

Unveiled by Nissan for the first time during the Madrid Motor Show in Spain, e-NV200 Camper and NV300 Camper comfortably accommodate two travelers who want to enjoy a zero-emissions getaway to the countryside, to the sea or wherever the imagination takes them.

NISSAN PRESENTA LA NUEVA GAMA CAMPER EN EL SALÓN DE MADRID

While the idea is attractive, the e-NV200 isn’t very practical, with its compact 40-kilowatt-hour battery and having a maximum range between 124 and 187 miles. But if you live close to the sea or the favorite mountain camping, it can do the job. A better solution for campers could be the new NV300 Camper, which is based on the regular NV300 cargo van. Power here comes from a family of compact 1.6-liter diesel engines.

Sales of Hybrid Cars Soar as Diesels Plunge by Almost a Quarter

Sales of plug-in hybrid cars soared by almost three-quarters year on year in May, dramatically outstripping the 3.4% overall growth in new car registrations. Nearly 4,000 plug-in hybrids were bought last month, up from 2,301 in May 2017.

Registrations of purely battery-powered cars were up by nearly a fifth, to 1,099. The numbers are still a small fraction of the total 192,649 cars bought in the month but all electrified vehicles combined took a record market share of 5,8%. However, the demand for diesel cars continues to wane in the face of environmental and tax concerns. Diesel registrations plunged by nearly a quarter, to 62,260. The market share of diesels this year so far stands at 32.8%, compared with 44.1% in 2017.
