Top and flop: the good and bad car news from week 16

+ Top – Electric Audi A6 E-Tron Concept projects video games on the wall

The current Audi design is yawningly boring. Just look at the Audi A4, A6 and A8. This Audi A6 E-Tron Concept proves that the designers in Ingolstadt can indeed draw a decent car. The exceptionally beautiful business sedan anticipates the upcoming Audi A6 E-Tron and comes about 700 kilometers on a full battery.

+ Top – All a car on LPG? LPG, for example, is cheaper than electricity

New cars that run on LPG – they still exist. And we understand why, because LPG is much cheaper than petrol and diesel. But do you also pay less for fuel with a car on LPG than for an electric car? Here’s a simple calculation example with real world numbers.

+ Top – MG ZS EV – Cheapest electric suv gets even cheaper

With a starting price of 30,985 euros, the MG ZS EV is the cheapest (read: least expensive) electric SUV on the Dutch market. MG is now temporarily deducting 4000 euros from the price. And that is not the first time …

+ Top – Are you ordering a Kia EV6? Then you get a 63 percent discount on fast charging

Coincidental (or not)! Hyundai and Kia announce the prices of the electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 almost simultaneously. The crossovers – Volkswagen ID.4 competitors – are partly the same under the skin. And the advantage of the Kia is: if you order it, you get a huge discount on fast charging at Ionity.

– Flop – You can’t buy this Ferrari without a name

This is no ‘normal’ Ferrari 812 Superfast, although it looks a lot like it. This limited edition model is only for “Ferrari’s most passionate collectors and connoisseurs” and that means you can’t buy it. Or you just happen to have an entire Ferrari collection in a shed …

– Flop – Toyota wants to become CO2 neutral, but still lobbies against emissions regulations

Toyota is lagging behind when it comes to the introduction of electric cars. At the unveiling of the Toyota bZ4X Concept – a plug-in SUV that will be on the market in mid-2022 – the brand expressed its ambition to become completely CO2 neutral. And yet Toyota still lobbies hard against environmental laws and emissions regulations.

– Flop – Stellantis puts very expensive Alfa Romeo Giulia / Stelvio platform in the bulky waste

Alfa Romeo’s Giorgio platform has cost billions, is said to be used for fifteen car models, but so far is only under the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio. And that is it. Stellantis – the new owner of Alfa Romeo – is calling it quits. Future Alfas must be (partly) electric and the Giorgio platform is not suitable for that.
