Top and flop - the good and bad car news of week 48 (2023) -

Friday afternoon, half past four. 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 Audi and Dacia make us greedy for 2024 and Elon Musk (Tesla) screws things up again. Good news, bad news. Top and flop.

+ Top – Audi will launch eight new models in 2024

In 2023, Audi was running at a low level, but that does not mean that all employees were sent on sabbatical to reinvent themselves on a yoga mat in Bali.

- Flop – Tesla Cybertruck is much more expensive than promised

Faster than a Porsche 911, more extravagantly designed than, well, anything we've ever seen. The Tesla Cybertruck is really coming and all specs have been released. But don't count yourself rich when you hear the prices. These are even higher than expectations and than Elon Musk promised...

- Flop – Stellantis fears for the future of EVs after elections

For many in Europe and the United States, the electric car symbolizes 'climate hysteria'. Carlos Tavares, boss of Stellantis, also sees the European and American elections (2024). with fear and trembling and has a plan B ready if the conservative forces win.
