It may sound amazing, but it is true. When we look at the sales figures for new vehicles in 2019, six Quebecers bought the superbolide signed Acura, and only three motorists opted for the small Fiat 500X SUV.
And you guessed it, the fact that Acura sold six NSXs makes a lot of sense considering its high price ($ 192,895). In addition, the number of customers able to afford these types of vehicles is not very large.
However, when we see that Fiat has sold only three 500X throughout Quebec, it's rather worrying for the manufacturer's survival in the long term. Especially since it’s a small SUV, a popular category for buyers.
For comparison, Hyundai sold 11,429 copies of the Kona, Honda 5,036 units of the HR-V and Mazda 4,911 models of the CX-3 in 2019.
Trees don't go up to the sky … And yet Tesla is on the march to prove the contrary. The Californian automaker founded by Elon Musk crossed in early February thresholds of market capitalization which propelled it into the stratosphere of the automotive sector. Monday February 3, Tesla was listed for $ 140 billion … Or the valuation of Volkswagen, Renault and PSA combined! In other words, from the top of its 360,000 cars sold in 2019, the company founded by Elon Musk was worth as much as the 18 million cars built by these three automotive groups. And yet Tesla is still unprofitable over an entire fiscal year. In 2019, only the third quarter was profitable. What are the driving forces behind this extraordinary stock market dynamic?
There is little debate around Tesla's innovative strength. "Everything is cutting-edge technology at Tesla, from software updates to batteries that resist extre
Nuvia strikes back. Accused by Apple of violating confidentiality and non-competition clauses, the start-up founded by former Cupertino managers accuses Apple of anti-competitive practices.
Gerard Williams III, who worked under the direct authority of Johnny Srouji, the chief architect of the Ax processors, said that Apple had tried to prevent Nuvia from recruiting engineers from Cupertino, while also trying to poach employees of his start-up.
Apple's complaint is intended to "Stifle the creation of new technologies and solutions by new companies and reduce the freedom of entrepreneurs to seek more fulfilling work", writes Gerard Williams in a document given to the California court.
Nuvia's goal is
Sleep is a risk factor that causes much of the accidents that occur on night trips, although traffic density is lower during those hours. For this reason, if we decide to travel at night, we must keep in mind that our body is better adapted to night rest and that it is a necessity, so, the only solution if we are tired, will be to stop and sleep.
Is it better to travel day or night?
During the night the traffic is reduced considerably, but most accidents occur during this time slot. One of the main reasons is the visual field: when driving at night, visibility is greatly reduced, since our night vision is lower and at the same time, essential for driving. Another factor is fatigue, since we humans rest at night.
Everything indicates that driving at night is more dangerous, however, during twilight hours, both sunrise and sunset, traffic is greater and visibility conditions are not the best. In addition, they are usually times when

PARIS (Reuters) – Japanese automaker Toyota announced on Saturday that it will reopen three of its four major factories i
After three catastrophic seasons with Honda and a complicated year of transition with Renault, McLaren finally found its way back in 2019, a campaign at the end of which the Woking team won a promising fourth position in the constructors' classification. A podium in Brazil came to reward the regularity of the structure at the forefront of the middle of the peloton, even if it is obviously results fundamentally distant from the aspirations of McLaren, as a historic competitor and multititré of the queen discipline.
However, on the side of the current leaders, no question of being intoxicated by the relative success of 2019. On the contrary, we must continue on the traced path and not put the cart before the horse. "We must maintain the positive dynamic", explained Andreas Seidl, McLaren's main team, to Auto Motor und Sport. "We also want to take a step forward in 2020 – not
That's all you experience when driving a Bugatti Chiron Sport on the Paul Ricard Circuit and its 1.6 km long straight line. Without baffle.
Never listen to those who say it is always nice in the south. Yes, that week the weather forecast announced six sunny days in Provence. But for the one where Bugatti invited us to try the Chiron at the same time as the Chiron Sport on the Paul Ricard and the surrounding roads, Météo France forecast 100% rain from morning to evening. Since its release in 2016, no one in the world has really tried the Chiron on the track. And so, just that day, we discover a dark sky like La Voiture Noire at dawn when we arrive in front of the Hôtel du Castellet to find two test Bugattis.
I ask Pierre-Henri Raphanel what will happen if the heavy rain announced falls as expected. "
