After almost five years since Mercedes initially unveiled their Project One concept car, the finalised, limited-production Mercedes-AMG ONE is finally ready for customer deliveries.
Half a decade of engineering does seem like a really long time, considering that most of the powertrain fitted to the AMG ONE are units that already have three years of continual development at the point in which the original concept car was first launched. To be fair to the AMG folks, the aforementioned three years of development was to develop the powertrain to be competitive in Formula One (F1).
This engine, and its derivatives, went on to win F1 constructor’s championships from 2014 - 2021.

Apple unveiled its next-generation CarPlay system at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2022) earlier today, and it promises to be much more than just a fancy reskin.
At the event, the Cupertino-based tech giant announced this major upgrade to their infotainment system, showing off its deep integration with hardware found on modern vehicles. Not only will drivers be able to display CarPlay content across multiple screens within the car, they would also be able to pull up vehicle data and select from a wide range of gauges, all designed by Apple.
Critical vehicle information such as engine temperature and fuel level measurements will be reflected onto the screen(s) in real-time.

Welcome, everyone, to the all-new Polestar 2. Hailing from the country that has brought us ABBA and IKEA furniture, Polestar is bringing the fight to the premium electric vehicle category – currently dominated by a certain Texas-based electric car company – equipped with all the Swedish sensibilities and nothing held back.
But the burning questions that many observers have on their minds are: what exactly is Polestar? And can this company’s latest model truly outperform Tesla’s Model 3, the current poster child of the EV world?
