It is evident that electric vehicles are going to be future. Germany has its eyes on one million electric vehicles in the country by 2020 and achieving 50 per cent electric car sales in another ten years. The global emission norms are getting meaner by the day and slowly hybrid engines will become mandatory to meet the norms, if not fully electric.
The China only Volvo S90 L has been spotted in the People’s Republic ahead of its official debut at the Guangzhou Motor Show in December. The car gets the same design, feature list and even engine lineup but is 100mm longer than the normal S90. This has allowed for extra space at the back, a favoured preference among car buyers in the People’s Republic.
The Safari Storme has completed a month in our garage and the first thing I did was to take it for a week-long 1500km long trip on a well surfaced road. That’s what SUVs are for. Of course, there were some broken roads and a few ditches strewn sparsely and I had to take it off the road across the wild grass to wash her in the pond so that she was ready for the picture above. I could have done most of it in my decade-old sedan, but guess what, it certainly wouldn’t have been so comfortable and stress-free.
Jeep has over 75 years of experience in building SUVs and the brand explicitly claims that their vehicles clearly inspire a sense of freedom and adventure. If you take a trip down memory lane, you will always come across Jeep owners who confirm that the brand has always gone by the ‘Go Anywhere. Do Anything.’ slogan.
