let’s hope for some relief now

THE SALES OF NEW CARS ARE sinking every month and last month there was a further drop in the sale of passenger vehicles. The introduction of Bharat Stage VI is going to be another challenge for the manufacturers. At a recent press conference, the Union Finance Minister announced the reversal of some of the policies to boost the economy. The Transport Minister has questioned the Niti Aayog’s decision to enforce a ban on diesel and petrol vehicles, saying that it is his call what should be allowed to be sold in the country. They are even considering extending the date for the enforcement of BS VI norms to revive the automobile industry. Under the provisions of the new Transport Bill, fines for traffic offences will go up considerably in order to…

what makes us different

UNLIKE OTHER AUTOMOBILE magazines, Car India is devoted cent per cent to CARs, SUVs and MUVs. There are no bikes or commercial vehicles to be found in Car India. Therefore, we have a very focused readership and also give our advertisers better bang for their buck! Our editorial team is passionate about cars. They live, drink, eat and breathe cars. This lends the crucial extra touch to their editorial efforts. Our editorial team is bound by a strict code of conduct. In an industry where foreign junkets and gifts are rampant in order to win over editorial staff, we strive hard to maintain our editorial integrity and balance. Our emphasis is on bringing out a quality, information-packed issue that does not rely on mere filling up of pages. We are not in competition…

new hybridized 3 plugs in more power

ELECTRIFICATION HAS WELL AND TRULY SET IN. While this has been coming for a while, its evidence has never been more obvious than when all leading car-makers have moved to not just electrified powertrains but also entire platforms dedicated to supporting some form of electrification to enhance the environment-friendliness of their cars. After what Mercedes-Benz and Volvo (including Polestar) showed off, BMW’s new efforts have gathered some serious momentum and the promise to deliver even more electrified and all-electric cars has been given a major fillip. Having sold their 400,000th electric car a few months ago, BMW now promise as many as 25 new electrified cars by 2023. Yes, the output reads in kilowatt (kW) but that will now also mean that we can consider “bhp” to be battery horse power. The…

next m3 to get 510 hp

FROM WHAT WE’VE UNDERSTOOD, THE DETAILS OF THE NEW BMW M3 (and M4) have been staring us in the face ever since the new X3 M and X4 M and their Competition counterparts were introduced. If you haven’t put two and two together yet, the platform is expected to be the same, as are the powertrains. That means that there will be an M3 (and M4) as well as an M3 Competition (and M4 Competition). The engine under the bonnet will be a new 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo petrol straight six capable of 480 hp in the M3 and 510 hp in the M3 Competition, with 600 Nm in either case, albeit peaking between different engine-speed bands: 2,600 to 5,600 rpm in the M3 and 2,600-5,950 rpm in the M3 Competition.…
