First Official Photo of 2011 Chevrolet Volt Leaked

8 09 2008

First official photo of new Chevrolet Votl were leaked into the web! The Volt is arguably the most important car in General Motors history, success could see the automotive giant return to the top of the auto sales tree but failure would put the very existence of the company in doubt. GM have released a number of teaser images over the past weeks and months and we even got a glimpse of the model making a surprise appearance on the set of the Transformers 2 movie but now we get to see much of the model in its full glory.

We remind you that the concept version that premiered at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show was equipped with an internal combustion engine and a battery-powered electric motor. Unknown already hybrids, the Volt uses the tame hearth engine not to sway the car itself but to take out the online generator that in cast produces verve for the electric motor.

New 2009 Ford KA Leaked Photo

30 07 2008

Ford officially presented  photo of next-generation Ka citycar. We’re still passing on minutiae but we determine it won’t take long before Ford lets outs formal information on the KA’s long-awaited successor that’s scheduled to make its world debut at the Paris Show in early October. Our first take is that Ford’s designers did a pretty convincing job in hiding the new Ka’s Fiat 500 underpinnings as the minicar looks remarkably distinct and different.

Producing in Tychy, Poland, the next generation Ford Ka shares its platform with Fiat 500, but not only that. The engines, a 1.25-litre petrol powerplant and a 1.3-litre Multijet, diesel, already presented in the Italian car, will also be untaken for Ka, probably with different calibrations. More haunting motors will be used in the upcoming, to challenge other “purloin rockets” like Renault Twingo RS and Fiat 500 Abarth, but Ford will clearly try to put the Ka apart with a unique suspension tuning.
