Established in 2003, the California-based electrical carmaker set out with the goal of overturning the auto market status quo. To that end, Tesla's most current play (and probably its essential) is called the Model 3. Framed as a more budget-friendly option to the highly successful Model S and the new Model X SUV, the Model 3 was also presented as the most effective compact EV since Elon Musk first revealed its development a few years back. Details are still little as Tesla has yet to release total requirements, however preliminary data recommends the Model 3 is as fast as a gasoline-powered compact and boasts the very best range in the sub-midsize section.
The modern-day Chrysler 300 was presented in 2004, nearly four decades after the preliminary 300 "letter series" was ceased. Bolted on the company's rear-wheel-drive LX platform with elements from the W211-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the 300 debuted with a host of V-6 and V-8 fuel powerplants, plus a diesel unit for European markets. The full-size sedan was upgraded for the 2011 model year, receiving lots of drivetrain and technology upgrades. The second-gen car received a facelift for 2015, that included a significantly modified front fascia among other features.
Here's what is learnt about the Lotus crossover so far: it will be integrated in China, its name will begin with "E" (Perhaps the Elope? Who knows?) and it will have emphasis on efficiency by being the lightest and fastest in its segment. Initially, the CUV will launch in China before ultimately expanding to Europe and Japan, but there is still no word regarding whether clients in the U.S. will ever have access to this vehicle. It would be tough to think of Lotus not bringing a crossover to among the largest markets for crossovers and SUVs, but it would require additional engineering (read: weight) to fulfill U.S. vehicle guidelines.
The Frontier has been around considering that 2004 with nearly imperceptible changes beyond a minor facelift for the 2011 model year. A simple interior and bare-bones powertrain make the present truck feel old, yet somehow charming in its timeless style. However, time marches on and the next Frontier is headed our way. Paradoxically enough, Nissan currently has its next version of the Frontier. It's called the NP300 Navara and has actually been on sale since the 2015 model year. Of course, the Navara isn't really' used in the U.S., however nations worldwide enjoy its bigger size, contemporary aesthetics, and car-like interior. The U.S.-spec Frontier is the last hold-out for the second-generation body.
BMW has numerous ways it might develop a pickup. First, is to leverage its collaboration with Toyota. Keep in mind, BMW's next roadster, the Z5 will share parts with the upcoming Toyota Supra, so the pair aren't negative to co-developing products. In theory, BMW might obtain the chassis of the Toyota Hilux. BMW's variation would unquestionably have a special look from the Hilux, though the Toyota's rugged strength would shine through.
