    I think wide is the only way in order to achieve low. It basically makes the battery thinner. I hear the Tesla Model S is very wide also. I think this is why most EVs end up being tall. Basically...

    I reached the conclusion some time ago that a lot of aspects of car ownership and usage don’t make sense, at least in urban environments. The way stuff is taxed in Ireland simplifies some of those...

    No, no deal won’t happen. That’s the only certainty, with the current parliament at least.

    The likes of Sky will never call it boring. They need to sell it to the viewers so we keep paying for it.

    It would obviously be a lot more exciting if Ferrari and Red Bull actually managed to get...

    I can't see how any Brexit variation will get parliamentary approval so it will go up and down as per usual.

    Seeing as I'm just back from an electric scooter ride, I figured I'd reflect on this amazing petrolhead nation that we will live in. I was tooling around in the CL the other day and came across a...

    €115k says the configurator but I’m sure at least €120k with options. It only comes in accountancy colours, though. Exciting stuff like resale grey.

    Yep for the first time ever, diesel emissions as measured in the lab are real. All thanks to WLTP. Some diesels are as low as petrols now. So in fairness, no need to ban or throw misery at the very...

    Well ok, but for me it is about what has gone before as this sounds like a +-1% on top of the existing mess. Trump has been trying to withdraw from these types of conflicts which I think is not a bad...

    No matter what the USA does in that region, they're going to be faulted and probably nothing good will come out of it one way or another. Had they had any sense back in GWB's days they would not have...

    What seems to be happening politically in other cities is that the residents are saying we don't want cars anymore, which is of course entirely reasonable. And because they are the voters they...

    Who said anything about it being simple or realistic [in Ireland]? Of course it's not going to happen, it requires far more than just some tweaking of some tax rates so it's not going to happen. And...

    How it does it affect older petrols, though? I'm assuming no-one really imports a pre-08 diesel in this country but if I want to bring in some old school V8/V10/V12 petrol goodness? From a quick...

    You can't because you've chosen not to. Much like I choose to not work in the city centre but if I did, I would be able to park and ride (which I'm sure you can also) or I could conceivably scoot...

    I think a major thing that's happening are the bike and scooter schemes. I've been to cities where you just pick up some mode of transport off the footpath and rock on. Once you have this, all you...

    I think BMW has particularly low NOx emissions (as measured in the lab, of course not real), at least the recent ones. It looks to me that all it's doing is adding hundred odd euro in VRT to petrol...

    If you have iDrive with sat nav and real-time traffic (which I’m sure you do) then CarPlay adds very little. I don’t have it in any car at the moment and really couldn’t care less. Like foyler I...
