Top and flop: The good and bad car news of week 26

+ Top – The Renault 5 is back! As an affordable electric car

Renault is working on the electric Renault 5, the electric MéganE and five other new EVs. We learned this during the Renault eWays ElectroPop press conference. The big news is the price of the Renault 5: which is 33 percent lower than that of the Zoe. That is worth it, because 33 percent of 33,000 euros is 11 mille.


+ Top – Tested: You want a Hyundai Ioniq 5! No Skoda Enyaq or Volkswagen ID.4

With the Ioniq 5, Hyundai has drawn a beautiful hatchback in the Golf/ID.3 segment, we thought at first. But in reality, the new electric car from Korea is a hefty crossover that competes against the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Skoda Enyaq iV and Volkswagen ID.4. And after a first acquaintance it is soon clear to us: the Hyundai Ioniq 5 is the one you want.
