Top and flop: the good and bad car news from week 12

+ Top – Why the electric Volkswagen ID.3 suddenly becomes 5700 euros cheaper

Until now, the Volkswagen ID.3 was only available with the 58 kWh Pro battery and a range of up to 425 kilometers. Volkswagen is immediately introducing a new variant of its electric hatchback. With its 45 kWh Pure battery, the ID.3 is exactly 5700 euros cheaper (read: less expensive). But of course the smaller battery also has an influence on the range …


+ Top – Alpina B8 Gran Coupé leaves the BMW M8 in the dust

Do you want the muscles of a BMW M8 Gran Coupé, but also the extravagance and comfort of a BMW 7 Series? Then Alpina now has a great solution for you.

The leaked data – including name and address details, e-mail addresses, license plates, telephone numbers and dates of birth – will be offered for sale on a hacker forum.


– Flop – That’s how dangerous Tesla Full-Self Driving Beta is on public roads

In the United States, Tesla has equipped some 1,000 cars with an upgraded Autopilot system. The addition is officially called Autosteer on City Streets, but is also referred to as Tesla Full Self-Driving Beta. And how misleading that name is, we see in this video, in which a Model 3 waddles through Oakland like a drunk driver, performing one perilous maneuver after another.
