Top and flop: the good and bad car news from week 10

+ Top – New Peugeot 308 open and naked

Peugeot has not been able to keep the new 308 secret. A spy photographer was lurking when the French Volkswagen Golf competitor peeped out from under a cloth. The first thing you notice? The design of the Peugeot 308, which is striking to say the least. We are not getting bored.

+ Top – New Nissan Qashqai throws everything into battle

The new Nissan Qashqai (2021) is a tough task. He has to compete against more than 20 other crossovers. At first we did not know whether he would succeed, but after an exclusive introduction in the Netherlands, we have every confidence. King Qashqai is here and wants his crown back.

+ Top – With this Volkswagen, charging is as fast as refueling

Even with the fastest charging electric cars, you will be turning your thumbs for half an hour. And that also depends on the charging station to which you are connected. Volkswagen says it will change that. This is Project Trinity’s first sketch; a fully electric sedan where charging is as fast as filling up with petrol.

– Flop – Electric Hyundai’s have to go to the garage

Hyundai is recalling more than 80,000 electric cars worldwide. This is because there is a risk of the battery catching fire. In the Netherlands, more than 6000 cars have to go to the dealer. These are the models Hyundai Kona Electric and Hyundai Ioniq Electric. The global campaign costs Hyundai more than 750 million euros, making it the most expensive recall ever.

– Flop – Jaguar Land Rover director: ‘Our cars are bad!’

Thierry Bolloré, the new Jaguar Land Rover director, has guts. In an effort to return his ailing business to profitability, he turns Jaguar into a fully electric brand within four years. Moreover, he says what it says: the Jaguar and Land Rover models are bad and have to improve a lot.

– Flop – Porsche is boos

The Porsche 911 Safari is back! But not from Porsche itself ‘, we wrote at the end of January. And exactly that last sentence tells why Porsche is now angry with the American coachbuilder Singer; the creators of the amazing Singer All-terrain Competition Study (ACS). Because this 911 Safari is not a Porsche. So there shouldn’t be a ‘Porsche’ on it.
