That’s one of the findings of a report released Tuesday by London-based automotive research firm Jato Dynamics. However, it found that Europe and the U.S. still have a few things to learn from China, the world’s biggest EV market, including prioritizing affordability, centralizing planning, and using data to better understand consumers.

Demand for cleaner and smarter cars is rising globally, particularly in Europe where the market has been bolstered by tighter emissions regulations along with an increasing awareness of climate change. EV sales in Europe in the first half exceeded China for the first time since 2015.

Although the coronavirus pandemic hurt all car sales, including EVs, which fell 15% globally in the second quarter, the market for electric vehicles is

South Korean researchers find new way to cool car parked in hot sun

If you have ever stepped into a car parked under the sun, you would be familiar with how hot it can get on the inside. This occurs because although sunlight can pass through the transparent windows, the thermal radiation re-emitted by the interior cannot, thereby creating a “greenhouse effect” and heating the inside of the car to temperatures as high as 82°C. Elderly people and children are at a particularly high risk of suffering heatstroke or hyperthermia at such temperatures.

This heat from a parked vehicle can be released by either spending energy in active cooling, which is not sustainable, or opening a window, which is not ideal on rainy days or when driving on a highway. Fortunately, scientists from Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), South Korea, have developed a new type of passive cooling technology to solve this issue.

In a new study, published in Science Advances

The All-New GA8, a luxury car for the new era, is launching soon in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

The GA8 has demonstrated extraordinary strength in its body frame and design, handling, and overall driving experience. This car is built to impress and will no doubt be a world-class luxury product for Saudi Arabia’s consumers.

The German Car Industry Musters for a New Tech Battle

Having spent years—and tens of billions of dollars—preparing for a shift in production toward electric vehicles, German car makers are expressing a new angst: that digitally “connected cars” could prove even more disruptive to their traditional strengths. This second leg of their race against Tesla could become a fresh excuse to squander investors’ capital.

Daimler set two priorities for technological leadership in a new strategy for its

Lorraine Kelly spoke to Tom Hollander today about his new BBC drama Us

Poor Lorraine was left hanging from the start when Hollander – via a video link from his West London home – failed to speak up after she introduced the new BBC drama which he produced and starred in.

She gave the two Toms a warm welcome, saying: “I loved this, I binged on this Tom, it appeals to absolutely everybody.”

This was met with silence, before Hollander finally asked: “Which Tom are you speaking to?”

Envisics raised $50m to put holograms in your next car

A little-known company called Envisics is getting a hand from major auto industry players as it tries to bring holographic displays to cars.

The startup is raising $50 million from Hyundai Mobis, General Motors Ventures, SAIC Motor, and Van Tuyl Companies. GM says it could use the technology in future electronic vehicles such as the Cadillac Lyriq, while Hyundai Mobis, a major automotive parts supplier, says it will work with Envisics to mass-produce augmented reality displays by 2025.

With holography, Envisics says it can render visuals that seem to appear in front of the car. This could be used to highlight pedestrians, stalled vehicles, or turn-by-turn directions as 3D overlays. It could also provide a bridge to self-driving cars, pointing out specific hazards that require human drivers to retake the wheel.

“We can paint that information directly on reality itself,” says Jamieson Christmas, Envisics’s founder and CEO.
