SUV Will Have 50-Mile All-Electric Range, 500-Mile Full-Tank Range

California-based Efficient Drivetrains touts plug-in hybrid SUV for Asian market.

When McLaren first introduced the 650S, the initial idea was to keep the 12C it effectively replaced around as a more accessible option – particularly in certain Asian markets where buying a new car, much less an exotic supercar, is an even costlier endeavor than it is in other markets. Woking soon changed track and discontinued the 12C, but has now addressed that "entry-level" demand with the introduction of the new 625C.

It's hard to fathom just how bad traffic can be in Asia. Sure, we hear about 60-mile-long jams and that motorists in China lose nine days a year to traffic, but until you can actually bear witness to the madness that is rush hour in an Asian city, there's no way to know how bad it is. It makes Los Angeles' 101 freeway seem like a joyous, relaxing day cruise.

There's a logical progression of technology in the auto industry. We've seen it with things like carbon-ceramic brakes, which use to be the sole domain of six-figure sports cars, where they often cost as much as an entry level Toyota Corolla.

Aluminum has had a similar progression, although it's further along, m

If there's one thing that's never lost in translation, it's the concept of status.

Fiat and Tata has reportedly stepped away from a tieup in the Indian market that saw Fiats being built in India, using engines shared with Tata and Maruti models, and being sold through Tata dealers. Neither company commented, but according to analysts, the issue was that in addition to Tata was simply too busy with its other endeavors, especially Jaguar Land Rover, to attend to the Fiat deal. Sales of the joint-venture vehicles have declined by more than 20 percent year-on-year.

Honda recently released its financial report for the the manufacturer's motorcycle division. Not surprisingly, two-wheel-friendly Asia accounted for a lofty 79 percent of the company's total sales in 2011. The entirety of North America, meanwhile, soaked up just 1.6 percent of the brand's total volume last year. What's more, Honda fully intends to expand its operations in the blooming Indian market.
