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.

– 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.

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.
