Used Car Shoppers Might Find the Best Deals over 100,000 Miles

  Used Car Shoppers Might Find the Best Deals over 100,000 Miles With used-car prices up an average of 14 percent this year, it's good to keep in mind that cars last a lot longer these days.By July, used-car values found their legs. And by October, used-car prices had made record-breaking leaps. Now, six months later, prices still hover at altitudes that require supplemental oxygen. CarGurus' tool for tracking used-car price trends shows the average price of a used car is $23,723, up almost 14 percent compared to this time last year. That's more than 10 times the 2020 rate of inflation. Every vehicle segment has seen gains, the smallest bump being about 5 percent for hatchbacks and wagons.

This would have to embrace the electro-car share in sales

On Wednesday, the European Commission has announced its proposals for the reduction of CO2 emissions . Thereafter, fleet emissions should decrease by 55 percent by 2030 compared to today's level before being reduced to zero 2035. What the goal for 2030 would mean for the product policy of the automakers, explain now by Automotive News Europe cited analysts.

If the proposals of the EU Commission pass through, fleet emissions must be sinked by 55 percent in 2030 compared to today. That would mean that this year 55 percent of the sold new cars are electric cars (BEVS), the analysts. This would correspond to a tremendous change towards today, where the BEV content in Western Europe is just nine percent.

Well-Known Supercar Dealer CNC Motors Accused of 'Stealing' Cars in Massive Alleged Fraud

  Well-Known Supercar Dealer CNC Motors Accused of 'Stealing' Cars in Massive Alleged Fraud Well-Known Supercar Dealer CNC Motors Accused of 'Stealing' Cars in Massive Alleged FraudBut something alarming has been going on at CNC Motors since last fall. Dozens of people have come forward to claim the dealership sold their consigned cars without their knowledge and kept the money. The allegations against CNC's owner and operator Clayton Thom stretch back to October of 2020.

Today's fleet limit is 95 grams per kilometer. A reduction of 55 percent would lower the limit to about 42 grams. However, these values ​​only apply on average; Each brand has other emission limits based on the average weight of the sold cars.

The previous reduction target for 2030 was 37.5 percent compared to 2021. This would have resulted in a share of 40 percent of purely electric cars, so the analyst house IHS Markit. A reduction of 55 percent would require 55 percent electric cars.

The rest of 45 percent of the new cars sold could continue to be a burner on board. In doing so, IHS assumes that the proportion of plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) remains constant at 10 percent. Full hybrids should be slightly due to 11 percent from 14. Mildhybride would fall from 34 to 23 percent. Only a tiny fraction of 0.01 percent would have a completely fossil combustion drive.

2021 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2021 Nissan Sentra: Raising Expectations

  2021 Hyundai Elantra vs. 2021 Nissan Sentra: Raising Expectations You can probably think of many words to describe your first car—in my case, a 2003 Saturn Ion—but “sporty” or “lively” are likely not among them. Almost two decades since the mostly forgotten Ion was born, compact sedans have turned a corner: Though not all of them are lively or sporty, they deliver the character, spirit, and great looks most first cars didn't. Cases in point: The 2021 Nissan Sentra and 2021 Hyundai Elantra. © Darren Martin 2021 Hyundai Elantra Limited vs 2021 Nissan Sentra SR 8 Both the Sentra and Elantra have been around for decades, but neither was recognized for the way they drove. But things are different today.

For the automakers, this would have serious consequences for your product range. However, many manufacturers have already set up on rigorous CO2 limits . So Jaguar, Ford, Opel, Volvo, Mini and Fiat have already planned a complete change to electric cars by 2030. Audi, VW and Mercedes have already announced an end date for the burner.

The proposals of the EU Commission are part of the Green Deal, the Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at the end of 2019 had presented. Thereafter, Europe should be climate-neutral up to 2050. From the Leyen, this project also compared with John F. Kennedy's target for moon landing: "This is Europe's on-the-moon moment," said the President at that time.

But the suggestions are so far only suggestions. Until all points from the EU Parliament and the Council of Ministers are appreciated, even intensive negotiations will be necessary. These should be at about at least one and a half years, so is expected.
