  1. I just came across a video of the Tesla Cybertruck, all-electric pick-up truck driving down what appears to be a freeway in LA. The Cybertruck has generated a lot of buzz around itself as it is Tesla's first pick-up truck and it is a major departure from the brand's current design language. What do you guys think of the Tesla Cybertruck?

  2. The Tata Altroz premium hatchback has just been revealed in its production guise along with all its technical details. The model will be launched by Tata at the 2020 Auto Expo which will be held in February in New Delhi. Pricing will also be announced at a later once it is launched, though expected pricing is in the 5-8 lakh (ex-showroom) range. I have attached some images and tables with technical information of the hatchback below.

  3. I have come across a new video in which the next-gen XUV 500 can be seen. The video shows a heavily camouflaged test mule of the next-gen SUV both from the exterior and interior. It appears that the interiors of the SUV are set to get a major overhaul as the dashboard sports a new layout and a lot of the interior is covered in camo as well.

  5. I have just come across some new images of the Toyota Raize compact SUV. The new images show off the SUV from the exterior as well as the interior. Some key features on the inside are the larger infotainment screen and the virtual instrument cluster (on what appears to be a higher variant model). What do you guys think of the Toyota Raize?

  6. Now here’s a fun mod…  students from the Nihon Automobile College (NATS) had this modified Jimny (called the Jimny Adventure) and displayed it at the recent Tokyo Motor Show. It gets new springs and shocks, new off-road wheels, and the ride height has been boosted as well. The bodywork itself also sports some changes – the regular doors have been removed, and there’s steel tubing wrapped around the exterior. The entire roof assembly can also be removed. What do you guys think of this take on the Jimny?

  7. Former Indian Cricket team captain, Mahinder Singh Dhoni (M.S Dhoni) has just added a new car to his collection. The vehicle in question is a Nissan 4W73 pick-up truck which is also known as the One-Ton, which has been restored and updated with a few modern conveniences by the team at SD Offroader Nakodar. What do you guys think of Dhoni's latest acquisition?

  8. I have just come across some images of the new Skoda Kamiq GT variant which is a China-specific model. Unlike the Kamiq slated to come to our market, which will be based on the MQB AO platform, the Chinese model is based on the older PQ-series platform. The Kamiq GT variant appears to sport a number of chrome accents all around the SUV, though it otherwise looks very similar to the standard car. What do you guys think about the Skoda Kamiq GT?

  9. The Honda Freed is an MPV sold in select Asian markets that shares its platform with the Honda Jazz premium hatchback. The carmaker will reveal the facelift of the second generation of the Honda Freed at the upcoming 2019 Tokyo Motor show, which will start next week. In Japan, the car is offered with an option of either a 129hp,1.5-litre petrol paired to a CVT automatic transmission or a 110hp, 1.5-litre hybrid which is paired to a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox. What do you guys think of the Honda Freed and would it make a good addition to Honda's India line-up?

  10. Bajaj has just brought back the Chetak name after a 14-year break. The Chetak is an electric scooter that has a 4kW electric motor and the scooter will sport an IP67-rated lithium-ion battery pack. Other technical details are yet to be revealed. The electric scooter will, however, have two riding modes - Eco and Sport which provide a claimed range of 95km and 85km respectively. What do you guys think of the new electric Bajaj Chetak?
