2014 Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive BMW i3 / Leaf killer ready to launch
Apr 15, 2014 - 1:04 AM - by TorqueNews


The first all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive has rolled off the assembly line in Germany, reports TorqueNews reporter Denis Flierl.

Mercedes-Benz is ready to take on the BMW i3 and the Nissan Leaf with the all-new B-Class Electric Drive. The all-electric new compact car is now being produced by Mercedes at their German factory in Rastatt. Mercedes says the B-Class Electric Drive will be offered first here in the U.S. this summer, and then will make it to German and select European showrooms later in the year. What is the new B-Class Electric Drive about?

We first saw the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive at the New York Auto Show last year. Itís a compact four-door with seating for five and is based on the existing second-generation B-Class. Daimler AG, maker of Mercedes-Benz, owns a 4.3 percent stake in Tesla Motors, and will use a Tesla-designed all-electric drivetrain in the new B-Class Electric Drive. This isnít the first electric vehicle for Mercedes, they also sell an electric version of the Smart city car and has rolled out a battery-powered 2014 SLS AMG gull-wing supercar that set a record at Nurburgring.

Itís powered... [Read More]

BMW to follow Honda back into F1?
Apr 14, 2014 - 4:17 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Motorsports, BMW, Ford



The economic downturn wrought devastating effects on motor racing. Formula One alone lost half its engine suppliers when Honda left at the end of the 2008 season, and both BMW and Toyota followed at the end of 2009. But things are looking up again. Cosworth may have dropped out this season, reducing the engine suppliers to three: Ferrari, Renault and Mercedes, the latter of which admits that it may have left had the engine formula not changed. But Mercedes has stayed and is dominating the... [Read More]

BMW M5 turns 30, celebrates sideways
Apr 14, 2014 - 12:12 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Classics, Sedan, Performance, Videos, BMW



BMW has a secret, and it's not telling. The brand's M Power blog is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the M5 and is taking a look back at previous models of its Autobahn-storming sedan, but it says that it will end "with a surprise." The celebration kicks off with a short video showing the latest M5 making some smoky donuts.

The original M5 debuted in 1985 and was the company's most expensive model at the time. Still, it packed a 3.5-liter six-cylinder generating a claimed 282 horsepower (286 PS), which was rather potent in its day. The company touted... [Read More]

BMW details Concept X5 eDrive ahead of New York debut

Filed under: Concept Cars, New York Auto Show, Hybrid, Crossover, BMW, Luxury



Already weighing more than most other types of vehicles and with the space to accommodate the extra equipment, crossovers and SUVs arguably make for one of the more ideal platforms to transform into a hybrid. And there have been a handful of them - like the Audi Q5, Infiniti QX60/Nissan Pathfinder, Porsche Cayenne/Volkswagen Touareg, ... [Read More]

2014 BMW 328d xDrive Sport Wagon
Apr 11, 2014 - 8:05 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Wagon, BMW, Diesel, Luxury, Quick Spins



There's a running joke among auto writers that the perfect car would be a diesel-powered, rear-drive wagon with manual transmission and no power accessories whatsoever. It would only be available in brown and would somehow be as fun to drive as a Mazda MX-5 Miata. Makes total sense, right?

Realistically, no manufacturer is ever going to completely fulfill our wishes, no matter how much we beg, plead, kick and scream about our dream car that most of us would actually never buy. The best we can do is hope for a vehicle that mixes some aspects of this ideal journalist's car. And in today's world, that vehicle just might be the BMW 328d xDrive Sport Wagon.

No, it's not available with a manual gearbox, and power can only be sent through an... [Read More]

BMW broadens engine bolt recall to nearly half-million cars worldwide
Apr 11, 2014 - 8:05 PM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Recalls, BMW



Almost one month ago, we reported on a BMW investigation into a potentially defective bolt that lived in the company's VANOS variable valve timing system. At that point, the potential recall was seemingly limited to Chinese-market cars; the company was filing a recall application with Chinese officials.

Today, Bloomberg is reporting that the engine bolt issue has expanded into a recall for several world markets, involving some 489,000 vehicles. BMW was able to verify that report to Autoblog, while also... [Read More]

2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe now more expensive than when new
Apr 07, 2014 - 12:32 AM - by BMW Forums
Filed under: Car Buying, Classics, Coupe, Performance, Auctions, BMW



At the end of the day, your friendly Autoblog editors are car guys, just like you. So, while we might have more of an opportunity to test some of the most interesting vehicles on the new car scene than does your average gear head, we can still be found whiling away those long afternoon hours looking at used cars and thinking about what could be.

Just the other day, we had a vivid reminder about one of our dream cars from the very recent past, the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe. If you didn't catch it, Michael Harley had a great time testing and reviewing... [Read More]
