Britain Worst for Road Rage

A recent survey suggests that British roads are the worst in the word in terms of road rage incidents. Before we get too excited here in Thailand, and think that we have finally found an area that Thailand isn't the worst place in the world to be a driver, it is worth pointing out that while Britain does top the list, the list in this case only includes 20 major nations, and Thailand is not included.

The survey also deals with only three categories....

Drunk Teen Kills 4 in Crash.... gets off easy because he suffers from affluenza!

All too often in Thailand, rich young people seem to find ways to walk away from justice following horrific road "accidents". But is this limited to the rich in Thailand?

Nissan Micra at Geneva Shows March Eco Car

Nissan has taken the covers off the all-new Nissan Micra at the Geneva motor show, and now that we can see what it looks like, I can't imagine there being a lot less interest in it. The only possible way this car could be a success is if it's insanely cheap.

Honda has just unveiled a new small car concept at the 2010 Auto Expo in New Delhi. You'll never guess what they've called it, so I'll tell you: "New Small."

I really hope nobody got paid to come up with that name. But, while the name might indeed be about as imaginative as the title of this article, the car itself is much less dull. In fact, I'd say it bodes well for the chances of the Eco Car's success in Thailand when it is launched next year (2011 people).

Toyota Etios in India

Toyota are due to dispaly a new small car in India. The Toyota Etios (apparently meaning "the origin of") at the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo which begins later this week. Usually cars released on the Indian market don't give much insight into the Thai market, but this could be different.

A Look to the Future - Chevrolet Volt

Chevrolet Volt

In this article we take a look at the Chevrolet Volt and try to work out if it is really worth waiting for. Will it actually give the Prius a run for its money? Is it the way forward?

What is the Volt?

The Chevrolet Volt is GM's answer to the assault of the Toyota Prius. The Prius is the top selling hybrid car in the world. When the Volt project was announced, oil prices were climbing steadily higher, pushing more and more buyers away from the SUVs that GM had been enjoying so much success with in the preceding years.

GM finally woke up to the threat posed by a combination of high oil prices and the apparent surge in popularity of affordable hybrid cars. The company reacted in true American fashion, by setting their engineers a seemingly impossibly difficult task to complete in an impossibly small time frame. The Volt was that task.

Four-Cylinder Holden is Bad News for Thailand

GM/Holden is to take advantage of a Federal Government AUS$6 billion car plan, and build a four-cylinder car in Australia starting in 2010. The car is to be based on the Chevrolet Cruze, a global car that GM hopes will help to turn things around.
