 The BMW i3 was chosen for the Green Car of the Year Award 2015, presented by Green Car Journal at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2014, as the first dedicated all-electric vehicle in the premium segment. This latest honour, which adds to a long tally of awards the BMW i3 has picked up over the past months, is a further endorsement of this model’s unique sustainable mobility concept.

 More than 12,000 BMW i3s have already been sold since November 2013. The presence of more and more of these vehicles on the roads of cities all over the world is clear proof that it is now possible to successfully mate zero tailpipe emissions with premium-class driving pleasure, and that this groundbreaking combination is here to stay. One year after its launch, the BMW i3 is already the third best-selling all-electric automobile on the market.

Since the Taxi Availability standards were implemented, there has been an increase in the number of taxis plying our roads, which means more are able to get taxis. Pre-revew, 82% of taxis are on our roads in 2012 during peak hours. Post-review, the figure has increased to 87%in the first 9 months of 2014. The increase means that there are over 1,400 extra taxis which are available to commuters during these hours. Also, more are plying at least 250km a day, if not, more.

However, there is a small group of car owners who value individuality over a car's resale value, choosing to paint and wrap their cars in unusual colours.

There are lots of options when it comes to changing the colour of your car (think paint, wraps, and dipping), and the relatively ease of doing so means that there is an increasing number of cars in unique colours. With all the fancy tech capable of reproducing the wildest of colours, what are the 5 most unique and original car colours in Singapore?

Introduction

Creative, innovative, unique and funky.

These four words exemplify the public’s perception of the new Renault Captur, having “polled” our friends and family on the design and outlook of the car.

Marrying sharp looks and futuristic design isn’t a piece of cake. And to this extent, we certainly must say that Renault has done a great job with its new urban crossover – the Captur.
