The Electric Mini Is Coming Next Year

The BMW Group has confirmed that they are right on schedule to roll out an all-electric Mini next year, and released a couple of teaser images to give us an idea of what to expect. The fully electric Mini is set to be based on the two/three-door hatchback, and it will feature a completely electric powertrain.


The plans were confirmed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend, where the automaker showcased the Mini Electric Concept that was first revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year. This will be the brand’s first completely electric model since the Mini E that was released as part of a pilot program a decade ago. The electric powertrain components will be manufactured by BMW in Germany, where it also makes the i3 and i8.

BMW Records Huge Increase in Electrified Car Sales

BMW has been showing strong sales numbers over the past year across its range, but electrified vehicles have really taken a jump. According to BMW, compared to the same month last year worldwide electrified vehicle sales have shown an increase of 47.6 percent. This means that 13,806 BMW I, iPerformance and Mini electric vehicles found new homes. It is only a small fraction of the 200,000+ cars BMW sells each month but it is a big improvement, none the less.


The situation is changing rapidly though. A member of the board of management at BMW estimated that by 2025 up to 25% of all cars sold will have some form of electrification. This could mean over 50,000 electrified cars sold monthly, a goal that seems very reachable considering the investment that is being put into the next generation of hybrids and EVs.

Longtail Name Revived On New Lanzante P1 GT, And It Is Awesome

A company called Lazante Motorsport teased a new version of the McLaren P1, which was slated to debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Lazante was the company that helped McLaren win at LeMan with the original F1 GTR Longtail in the 1990s, so it is the right candidate to make a P1 even faster.


The highly anticipated McLaren F1 Longtail successor is finally here, and it is making its full debut at Goodwood. This car is called the P1 GT, and it is the latest in a line of boosted, race-prepped McLaren from Lazante. They took the already fabulous McLaren P1 and fitted it with an aggressive new aerodynamic package that includes a fixed rear wing and longer tail. The company did not specify if the power has been increased or how much the P1 GT weighs.

Mercedes-Benz Pop Up Store Could Be Coming To A Mall Near You

Going to a car dealership isn’t always a pleasant experience. There are some ways to avoid a bad experience, but it would just be simpler if automakers allowed you to look at their cars somewhere else – like on the internet. Mercedes-Benz is looking to inch away from the painful dealership experience.


Mercedes pop-up stores are coming to the US this year. Unlike traditional dealerships, pop-up stores are designed to focus on showing off the product, rather than just selling it. Mercedes experimented last year with pop-up stores in Atlanta and Miami and will follow up with a third location in Chicago. This year, Mercedes is planning on opening more of them probably focused on new product launches. The pop-up stores will look a bit like Apple stores that you see in the mall.

A small Indian company called Vazirani Automotive has revealed a new supercar called the Shul, and it really catches your attention. The Shul is a new type of supercar, that features a turbine-electric drivetrain that is designed to appeal to “purists and petrolheads.” Four electric motors sit on each wheel to provide fully independent torque vectoring, each sending power through a single-ratio gearbox.

Tesla Will Be The First Automaker To Lose The Tax Credit For EVs

The clock is ticking for Tesla buyers in the US to receive the full $7,500 federal tax credit for electric carsTesla delivered its 200,000th car this month which means a slow phase-out of the tax credit has begun.


Put in place early on in the Obama administration, the tax credit was seen as a tool that could be used to encourage customers to buy plug-in electric or hybrid vehicles. It was meant to offer consumers a bit of a break while the cost of battery technology slowly came down and to encourage manufacturers to push for greater advancements in that technology.
