Cadillac’s Ciel V6 Convertible is paired lithium-ion battery

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Cadillac’s quest to compete with German luxury makes first took it smaller. With the unveiling of the Ciel convertible concept, the brand is thinking big again.

Cadillac revealed the Ciel hybrid Thursday night at Pebble Beach, ahead of Sunday’s Concours d’Elegance car show. If General Motors decides to build it, the Ciel could be the largest car in Cadillac’s confirmed future lineup.

The four-seat Ciel has a 3.6-liter direct-injection V6 engine paired with a lithium-ion battery. Its doors are French-style, opening in opposite directions without a B-pillar to show off the interior’s Italian olive wood, machined aluminum and hand-tipped leather.

“Large, expressive luxury is innate to Cadillac, and the Ciel recalls that heritage, while suggesting where the brand can go in the future,” said Clay Dean, Cadillac’s global design director, in a statement. Continue reading “Cadillac’s Ciel V6 Convertible is paired lithium-ion battery” »

Mahindra & Mahindra Passes Tata Motors

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Will Indian automaker Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. shake up the U.S. truck market with its new midsize pickup called the Appalachian sporting a 2.2L four-cylinder diesel engine producing around 150 horsepower and 300 pound feet of torque.

Mahindra’s entry into the U.S. market revealed that the truck was introduced as a 30 to 35 miles per gallon and cost in the mid-$20,000 range. The truck has six-speed automatic that’s controlled via a floor-mounted shifter or paddle shifters(!), have a class-leading payload of 2,600 lbs. and feature a 60,000-mile, four year bumper-to-bumper warranty.

If that’s not enough to strike fear in domestic and import truck makers alike, Mahindra has also revealed plans to sell a diesel hybrid version of its pickup. If it happens, the diesel hybrid Appalachian will be, as far as we know, the only diesel hybrid on sale in the U.S. market and achieve fuel economy figures even higher than its diesel-only counterpart. Imagine a midsize pickup in the low-$30,000 price range capable of 40+ mpg. Continue reading “Mahindra & Mahindra Passes Tata Motors” »

Hyundai Enters the Hybrid Race

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Just in time for the latest round of high gasoline prices (although they are dropping somewhat at the moment),

the gasoline-electric hybrid version of the redesigned Hyundai Sonata sedan has arrived.

The car is EPA rated at 35 mpg city/40 highway, which isn’t quite as high as the fuel economy of the best-selling hybrid, the Toyota Prius, officially 51 city/48 highway.

But also unlike the Prius, the Sonata hybrid has an almost identical gasoline-only version, which arrived last spring as an early 2011 model. This is a regular-looking car, not a vehicle that screams “hybrid” as it rolls down the road.

Prices of the Sonata and Prius hybrids are similar when configured the same. There is just one trim level for the Sonata, and the base price is $25,795 (plus $750 freight). Options can run the price into the low $30,000s, but those extras aren’t necessary to have a really nice hybrid sedan with ample room for five passengers and their luggage.
