Goodbye Borgward - The demise of a brand

According to the statistics portal Carsalesbase, which refers to figures from the CAAM association, the Borgward brand, which is owned by the driving service provider Ucar, was only able to sell a few units of the BX2021, BX7 and BX5 models in 6. Borgward thus achieves a minus of over 80 percent compared to the previous year. With a market share of 0,02 percent, the brand has practically disappeared from the market.

Preview of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) 2023

The legendary hill climb on Pikes Peak, a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the US state of Colorado, will take place on Sunday, June 2022, 22. And the roaring loud roar of the tuned combustion engines, which lose around a third of their power on the way to their destination, which is on the summit at 4.301 meters above sea level, due to the thin mountain air, is increasingly put under pressure by powerful electric cars. In 2014, the Stromer took second and third place. In 2015, the electric car with the bulky vehicle designation “e0 PP03 Elektroauto” from the Latvian manufacturer “Drive e-0” won the open vehicle class for the first time.
