  • Fiat Fiorino Qubo 1.4 (2008) review

    Price:  £9,995

    15 September 2008 by Jesse Crosse

    Fiat reckons its Qubo (that's a bastardisation of the Italian for 'cube') might fulfil a new market segment, as the funky and stylish answer to young, cash-strapped urban and suburban buyers looking...

  • Renault Scenic ZEV H2 prototype (2008) review

    27 June 2008 by Richard Aucock

    Renault, that so traditional and straight-laced of car companies. It makes sensible family cars and MPVs for sensible folk. The Regie doesn’t do revolution lightly. But, for the past decade, it’s...

    26 June 2008 by the CAR road test team

    Mercedes has been running a test fleet of fuel cell A-classes since 2002, and it’s preparing for small-scale production of a fuel cell B-class in 2010. To get an idea of what the fuel-cell B-class...

  • Saab 9-3 Turbo X (2008) and Aero XWD (2008) review

    Price:  £32,495

    25 February 2008 by Glen Waddington

    Saab's been a bit cash-starved for a while, so the 9-3 Turbo X is the first new product from GM's Swedish outpost for some time. Don't get too excited: it's not a brand new car. But its advanced...

  • Kia Sportage FCEV (2007) review

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What is a FCEV? It stands for Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle, and this Sportage SUV is Kia’s latest attempt at a hydrogen-powered car. This technology has been the talk of the industry for the last decade...

  • Honda FCX fuel-cell concept car (2007) review

    01 August 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is a ‘production fuel cell car’? Can’t find it in the Honda price list… You won’t. California law requires big car makers to offer zero-emission vehicles as part of their line-up, and the...

  • Ford Focus FCV (2007) review

    25 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    Why am I supposed to get excited about a last-generation Focus saloon? Partly because it has a spec-sheet that reads like a Porsche 911 GT3 RS – ultra-thin lightweight glass, bespoke parts in...

  • GM Hy-Wire CAR (2007) review

    06 June 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    The Hy-wire? Sounds like a circus act… Don't be fooled. It’s a very significant bit of technology. When General Motors unveiled AUTOnomy at the Detroit Motor Show five years ago, the oddly compelling...

  • Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Ben Whitworth

    How does a hydrogen-powered RX-8 work – and no technobabble please... It's simple. The RX-8's rotary engine can run on either petrol or hydrogen, which is stored in liquid form in a second fuel tank.

  • BMW Hydrogen 7 (2006) review

    16 November 2006 by Ben Oliver

    That’s not a green car. It’s a dirty great limo… Yes, it’s a long-wheelbase BMW 7-series with a 6-litre V12 engine. But it runs on liquid hydrogen as well as petrol, emitting virtually no CO2 when...
