The technology to produce fuel-efficient cars was already available decades ago. Nowadays consumers are looking for more fuel efficiency. Why then, does it take so long before we can buy these cars and drive around cheap and environmentally friendly? This Dutch documentary, which is in English for the biggest part, tells us the sad story of how the huge car and oil companies are blocking innovation. But small companies and individual projects are not waiting for them anymore. A must see!
A review of the Toyota FJ Cruiser by CarTV: "The FJ Cruiser is the coolest, most unapologetic vehicle ever built by Toyota, a bold SUV not for everyone but it could be, given its off-road prowess, capable engine, interesting interior, and exciting design. About that design: that's another thing that's refreshing when an automaker keeps to the original concept of a car and creates a really cool vehicle."
Not long ago I reported about the car that can drive itself. Well, here's a video of a race between cars that don't have drivers inside of them. VW's Electronics Research Lab built "Stanley", the defending world champion in the DARPA Grand Challenge for autonomous cars. The ERL also retrofitted "The Chameleon", a 60s-style van with innovations seen nowhere else. Rick Chavez reports for CNBC Europe on the new technology breakthroughs.

The Mercedes Benz S-Class is the car that shows which features other cars will have in the near future. Radar guided cruise control, automated breaking force, headlamps that come on automatically, voice recognition, infrared camera, DVD player, surround sound and even digital television reception. Besides this it received an environmental certificate because the car is so ethically built: lots of recycled materials and an engine that burns its fuel very cleanly. Bonus: The disastrous press demonstration of the Mercedes S-Class

Gisteren liep ik stomtoevallig tegen een verzameling bloedmooie auto's aan op de Parade in Den Bosch. Het ging om de Jeroen Bosch Rally 2011. Een tweedaagse rit die startte en eindigde in Den Bosch. Dus snel maar even naar huis gegaan, m'n...
MSN Cars tests the new Mini Clubman Cooper S. I still like the design of the old Mini, I think the new design is over the top. Especially the interior with that huge speedometer in the middle. In the Clubman version they went a step furtther and added a suicide door. The good thing is that Mini has the balls to make a car like this. I can only compliment them for that. You like it or dislike it. Better than all those cars out there that nobody even notices.

The body of the Peugeot 907 concept car is made out of carbon fiber. The car is not meant to go into production, but just to be a prototype for featuring Peugeot's new designing techniques.

Just like the Audi RSQ and the Scoot, this professional Soap Box Racer was also on display at the Design On Wheels Show. Watch the Soap Box Racer by Marijn van der Poll in this short clip.On his website Marijn writes: "The Soap Box Racer is, like it suggests, inspired on a soap box. The realization of a boyhood dream that brings back the car to it's true essence. The romance of the technique and the accessibility of a four wheeled box you made with your father in the garage. Away with cupholders and dvd players. Take to the road with an open one seater. With the asfalt rushing by underneath and the wind in your hair."

Yesterday I saw an amazing thing on tv: a Toyota Prius that was parking itself! The only thing the driver did was selecting the spot where he wanted to park the car (using the dashboard computer) and handle the brakes while parking. BMW is introducing the same techniques as you can see in the video above.The automatic parking system on the Toyota Prius is called Intelligent Parking Assist (IPA) and has been implemented since 2003. Unfortunately this version of the Prius was only sold in Japan where 80% of the buyers opted for a Prius with IPA. With the introduction of the 2006 Toyota Prius it also becomes possible to buy a Prius with IPA in other countries. Here's a short movie which shows a journalist parking the Prius while keeping his hands out of the window.
