Top and flop: the good and bad car news from week 11

– Top: French beauty! The new Peugeot 308 is a design highlight

The current Peugeot 308 has already passed its expiry date for a while. We tasted it, smelled it, but no… it is really time for the trash can. Its successor is ready and makes us feel positive with its expressive design. Because what a beauty is the new Peugeot 308 say!

– Top: This is the electric BMW i4! And it comes 590 kilometers

We now also know immediately what the new BMW 4-series Gran Coupé will look like, because this BMW i4 is simply the fully electric version of it. BMW does not reveal much details about the plug sedan (no, we are not going to say ‘four-door coupé’), but it is known that it can reach a maximum of 590 kilometers on a full battery charge.

– Top: Successor to the Toyota Aygo (2022) is HUGE

The Toyota Aygo bravely holds its own in the A-segment. Where the Volkswagen Up triplets and the Renault Twingo will not get a successor, a new Aygo will simply be introduced in 2022. Without Peugeot and Citroën this time. That marriage broke down.

– Top: Is the electric Alpha Wolf the coolest pickup on the market?

Well, no… because the electric Alpha Wolf is not on the market yet. But if he is in two years’ time, we will immediately draw our wallets. Because look at the thing! What a great mix of retro and new. Plus, it’s not as ridiculously big as those American full-size pickups: the Ford F-150, Ram 1500, and Chevrolet Silverado.

– Flop: Buy this worn out Volvo V70? That will cost you 20 million dollars!

The private seller of this Volvo V70 is even proud of the price he asks for his old station wagon. “The most expensive Volvo in the world is for sale,” he writes above the ad. Because he wants exactly $ 20 million for his V70. This is why …

– Flop: Ouch! This can happen if you tow a Jeep Wrangler incorrectly

The twisted pile of metal you’re looking at here was once the 3.5-liter V6 of a brand new Jeep Wrangler. The engine finally went into trouble after the owner towed his SUV behind his camper (which is quite normal in the United States). However, he missed one thing. And that killed the Wrangler.

– Flop: Tesla admits: Full Self-Driving Beta option is not self-driving at all

Do you want to buy / lease a Tesla? Then you can tick the Full Self-Driving Capability on the option list for 7500 euros. Very misleading name of course, because even the recently rolled out FSD Beta is not self-driving. And Tesla secretly admits that.

– Flop: No more ‘Made in Holland’! Tesla stops assembly in Tilburg

There is a Tesla car factory in Tilburg. There the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model X for Europe are put together. But not for much longer. Tesla will stop assembly in the Netherlands very soon, leaving almost a hundred employees on the street.
