Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 45 (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 we were able to drive the Volvo EX30 and we heard news about a ridiculous speed limit.

+ Top - Volvo EX30 is a promising newcomer

The electric Volvo EX30 is the smallest Volvo in a long time. The expectations of the compact SUV are even greater. With a lot of horsepower and favorable prices, it should give the competition a major headache. Is that going to work? We tested the Volvo EX30!

+ Top - Jeep Avenger with petrol engine still goes to the Netherlands

Sometimes you get the idea that car brands think that everyone looking for a new car wants an EV. After previous doubts, Jeep operates with the new Avenger also includes customers who are not yet ready for an EV.


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 - Road tax for EVs? You don't have to worry about that with this car!

There is a lot of uncertainty about what will happen to road tax for electric cars. That makes people hesitant to order an EV, but one brand has come up with something about that. If road tax is introduced, the importer pays the bill.

- Flop - New Volvo boss comes to work in the wrong brand of car

Anders Bell has recently been appointed Head of Research and Development at Volvo Cars. Then it's a bit Strange that he comes to the office in a Tesla Model Y. Are electric Volvos not good enough?

- Flop - E-fuels as an alternative to EVs are still far away

Cars with combustion engines can become CO2 neutral with e-fuels. That seems like a nice alternative to electric cars. In theory, synthetic fuel can also be made in enormous quantities. After all, the raw materials water and carbon dioxide (CO2) are available in abundance. The only condition is that there is enough green electricity available. And therein lies the rub.

- Flop - In this city you will soon only be allowed to drive 20 km/h!

From Friday, December 8, 2023, you can only drive 30 km/h on many Amsterdam roads. That already creates steam from the ears of the car enthusiast. If you think it can't get any worse, you're wrong. There is a city where they go even further. Remember that if you want to go to a Christmas market soon…
