Friday afternoon, half past five. Computer off, the door to your workplace can be closed behind you, the weekend has started. At Autoreview.nl we look back on a week in which the VW ID.3 received positive news and Toyota had doubts about hydrogen. Good news, bad news. Top and flop.
We respect the Toyota Mirai. It is one of two hydrogen cars that you can simply buy and of the two it is the most beautiful. But now that Toyota is putting more effort into developing battery-electric cars, the love for hydrogen seems to be cooling off. And there is a good chance that the Mirai will not get a successor.
Volkswagen has not been doing well in the EV field lately. Will the Germans ever throw up their hands in frustration and joke that they would rather mess with diesels? Because this week it was announced that the Volkswagen Group wants to cut thousands of jobs at its software division Cariad. That is also annoying for buyers of the new electric Porsche Macan and Audi Q6 E-tron.
The Tesla Model Y became cheaper this week. Tesla has removed 2,000 euros from the price and now the basic version of the electric SUV falls below the subsidy limit. That will save you a nice 4950 euros. People who already drive a Model Y are disappointed. But know that the subsidy only applies to the basic version – no options allowed.
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.
Over time and use, batteries lose their maximum capacity. The pace at which this happens is still unclear. A Volkswagen ID.3 from the ADAC that often used a fast charger is still coming after 100,000 kilometers surprisingly far on a full battery.
The new Lexus LBX will hit the Dutch market in early 2024. Prices start at 35,995 euros, which makes the hybrid SUV slightly cheaper than the most talked-about model of the moment: the fully electric Volvo EX30 (from 36,795 euros). Of course, the version you want will easily cost 40 grand.
The Skoda Enyaq has only been on the market for three years, but Skoda is already working on it the next generation Enyaq. In an interview, Skoda boss Klaus Zellmer already released some details, including the loading time. It has been shortened so much that you hardly have time for an extensive TikTok dance while waiting.
