Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 43 (2023) -

Friday afternoon, half past five. Computer off, the door to your workplace can be closed behind you, the weekend has started. At we look back on a week in which Mazda acts strangely, but BMW bans 'weird'. Good news, bad news. Top and flop.

- Flop – BMW doesn't want electric outliers

Supporters of the BMW i3 called it smart and futuristic, while opponents called it a potato on narrow tires. BMW is itself completely done with the idiosyncratic model. Its also electric successor is deliberately boring and we think that's a shame.

- Flop – Plug-in hybrid doomed in the Netherlands

For many consumers, economical PHEVs are a nice, affordable alternative to a diesel car or EV. Unfortunately, the EU and the Dutch government have plans to kill all benefits from 2025 onwards. And it will certainly be the case in the Netherlands from 2027 onwards done with the plug-in hybrid.

- Flop – Honda's second EV is just not up to par in the electrical field

The sweet Honda E came, saw and disappeared. For attempt number two, Honda takes a more serious approach: the Honda e:Ny1 is a compact electric SUV with a 412 kilometer range. But this Honda is also certainly not a fast charging miracle...


Not yet ready for the switch to electric driving?

With Private Lease you can get into the iconic Fiat 500 Hybrid from just €279 per month.

+ Top – Mazda is doing something strange with a wonderful sports car

The Mazda Iconic SP shows what Mazda's plans are for a new sports car. The emphasis is on the design and the engine. It will also run on hydrogen give a firm push.

+ Top – Lexus shares serious EV plans

Lexus has unveiled two electric concept cars: the Lexus LF-ZC and the LF-ZL. The first one in particular looks promising. And hurray: it's not an SUV for a change, but a sedan! Plus, Lexus is keen to make it as sleek as possible. The Lexus LF-ZC will be released in 2026.

+ Top – Battery changing stations are going very well

Nio distinguishes itself from other EV builders with its battery swapping stations. This innovative technology has proven to be successful: the Chinese replaced their 30 millionth battery worldwide earlier this month. What is the position of Nio in the Netherlands?
