Tesla lowers the price of the Model 3

While the price/performance ratio of electric cars has improved continuously in recent years, the opposite trend can be observed with Tesla's entry-level Model 3.

Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric Ultimate review

Since the introduction of the Volvo XC40 as a compact SUV in 2017, sales figures in Europe have increased steadily from year to year.

Nissan Ariya Evolve Pack - The long-distance crossover

After the launch of the Nissan Leaf, Nissan took a good decade to present the new Ariya in the middle class in 2020 at the Yokohama Motor Show. It took even longer until the final start of production in 2022 due to delivery problems with semiconductor components. In the meantime, the competitors VW and Hyundai have already been able to place their competing models in this class. In the middle of the northern German winter, we were able to test the brand new Ariya extensively in the highest equipment variant, the Evolve Pack, in inhospitable conditions.
