Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 46 (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 Volvo shocked everyone and we take our hats off to the new Renault Twingo.

+ Top - Renault also with Twingo in retro atmospheres

You can of course accuse Renault of laziness, with all those retro models. First the Renault 5, then the Renault 4, and now the Twingo again. But the electric Twingo (2026) is something to eat and so we are forgiving. Even more good news: Renault is aiming for a price of 20,000 euros.

+ Great - It's good that Polestar is joking around

Last year, Polestar unveiled the sensational Polestar 6, of which only 500 units would be built. All sold out, of course. But now Polestar suddenly says that the production does not stop as long as there is demand. A remarkable twist. Do you still have two tons lying around? Take your chance!

+ Top - Range lecture from Tesla

The range of an electric car is difficult to determine exactly and that often leads to dissatisfied customers. But look at it from the other side and tick Tesla down the long list of factors that determine the range. Then you understand that it is better not to call the technicians to predict the range exactly.

- Flop - Waaah, what kind of Swedish projectile is this?

When you say Volvo, you don't immediately think of an MPV that is over five meters long. But this colossus for seven people is definitely on the agenda. Recovered from the shock? There is also good news: the Volvo EM90 is intended for the Chinese car market and is not coming to Europe yet.

- Flop - Warm up your engine in the winter? Do not

The nights are getting colder and frozen windows are lurking again. For many people, this is a reason to warm up the engine of their car before setting off. That's risky and this is why.

- Flop - US is 20 years behind China in battery production

Not only does the occupant of the White House squeak and creak, battery production in the United States is also anything but vital. China is the lord and master and also has the most raw materials. That is a major problem not only for the US, but also for Europe. Time to intervene.
