Mercedes-Maybach builds some of the most kitted out and opulent production cars in the world. Think of the Maybach S 560 and S 650 as a Mercedes S-Class taken to the next level. Today, Mercedes-Maybach revealed a new teaser for what looks like a concept for a new EV. The car is set to debut in just a few weeks at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. This might be the Maybach SUV we reported on a few weeks back.

China's solar road will charge cars as they drive

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 23:30

Filed under: ,,,,,,

In Jinan, China, there's a section of highway over which some 45,000 vehicles drive every day. A company called Qilu Transportation Development Group is converted about two-thirds of a mile of that roadway to generate solar electricity — enough to power the highway lights and 800 homes. Qilu Transportation isn't stopping there, though. Looking forward to a future of electric and autonomous driving, the goal is to make the road smart. Eventually, it will be able to provide more accurate tra

Moving sculptures on the beaches of The Netherlands

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 22:57

Filed under: ,,,

Sculptures that can move? These mobile "animals" are the artistic vision of Dutch artist and kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen. Since 1990 Jansen has been creating a new form of art in motion that lives on beaches. Jansen's animals are wind powered and were seen in a BMW commercial in 2006. The skeletal structure of each animal is made from electrical tubes bound together by zip ties. A rotating spine in the internal structure of the creatures allow the animals to move forwards and backwards. Jansen

2019 VW Jetta vs. best-selling compact cars: How they compare on paper

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 22:30

Filed under: ,,,

As the brand's best-selling car, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta needs to be good to maintain its sales, if not grow them. We just drove it, and found the latest Jetta to be stylish, frugal, and decently priced, if not exciting. But we also wanted to see how it compares on paper to other cars in the segment. So we've assembled the specifications from the four best-selling compacts on the market in order of their sales starting with the best-selling Honda Civic, followed by the Toyota Corolla, Nissan S

Aston Martin Rapide AMR spied testing at the 'Ring

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 21:40

Filed under: ,,,,

At last year's Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin launched its AMR line of limited-edition, high-performance models. The first two models presented were a Vantage AMR Pro designed only for the track, and a Rapide AMR that's was a slightly hopped up version of the Aston sedan. Though they were fully revealed back then, it seems Aston Martin has still been doing a bit of testing, since one of our spy photographers caught the Rapide AMR at the Nurburgring.

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 21:13

Filed under: ,,,,

We know the Ford Shelby GT500 is coming. We don't have many details, but the unexpected teaser we got back in January did say the car will have more than 700 horsepower. It seems the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Chevy Camaro ZL1 have some competition on the way. Everything we've seen until now has been veiled, but this new batch of spy photos gives us our best look yet at the hottest Ford Mustang.

Auto Blog News Feed - Thu, 04/12/2018 - 19:30

Filed under: ,,,,

The 2019 Jetta is a car Volkswagen really needs to get right. Last year, it was VW's best-selling model in America by a wide margin. And although the new Tiguan and Atlas have been propelled ahead so far this year by America's crossover obsession, the Jetta is still VW's best-selling car, beating the Passat and the Golf. Put simply, the new Jetta has got to be good.
