Bob is confused over BMW’s electric vehicle strategy...

Everyone and their dog are at it these days – yup, that’s right, I’m talking about electrification. Whether it’s pure electric BEVs (battery electric vehicles) or PHEVs (plug-in hybrid vehicles) every manufacturer is jumping on the bandwagon, keen to assert their position as the world leader in eco-friendly transportation for the masses, or given their price points, should that be the very well heeled?

Has had quite enough of antisocial and impatient drivers

Given that I’m writing this during the run-up to Christmas, I suppose I should be full of peace and goodwill to all mankind, but I’m afraid I’m not.

I’d also wager you have the patience of a saint.

Bob Harper … questions the quest for Nürburgring lap times

I’s amazing what manufacturers or, perhaps more precisely, their overpaid marketing departments and advertising agencies, deem newsworthy these days. Hardly a day goes by without some spurious rubbish pinging its way into my inbox, and I must confess that most of the dross is sent to the virtual wastebasket with the most cursory of glances.
