An Ode To The Internal Combustion Engine: Mazda Fan Festa 2023 At Fuji Speedway

It was a traffic jam worth being in. As our bus went inside the premises of the Fuji International Speedway, we were surrounded by a gaggle of Mazdas. Most were MX-5s, CX-5s, and CX-60s, but there was an odd Mazda Luce or two. Seeing the sight, our bus driver muttered the words, “Ah, rotary engine.” While I couldn’t make out the rest of his Nihongo, his knowledge of Mazda’s trademark engine spoke volumes of the brand’s indelible mark among the Japanese, and the rest of the world for that matter.

Can You Make It From Manila To Baguio (And Back) In An EV Without Worrying About Range?

Whenever we get our hands on any vehicle with a modest engine displacement, the most common question we get is: kaya ba umakyat ng Baguio yan (can it get up to Baguio)? Located 1,540 meters above sea level and about 200 kilometers north of Manila, the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” or “The City of Pines” is often an endurance test a car must ace before being accepted by the masses as well-built (matibay). Nowadays, just about any well-maintained modern vehicle can now make it up thanks to a better road network, and of course, better built cars. But what about EVs?

Can An EV Road Trip? We Drive The BMW iX1 And i7 In Germany To Find Out

EV adoption is still in its infancy here in the Philippines. With just a handful of public chargers available, most EVs are relegated to urban use, not because of their range per se, but because of range anxiety. Even as carmakers manage to unlock sometimes stupendous ranges on modern EVs, range anxiety has caused owners to be overly cautious about taking one out of town; and they have every right to be. Unlike a conventional petrol or hybrid vehicle, once you run out of juice in an EV, it’s game over.

The Curious Case Of The Honda Civic Type R's Key Fob

Don’t mind my misshapen thumb. Focus your attention instead on the Civic Type R’s rather peculiar key design. The Honda Smart Card Key, as it’s officially known, is probably one of the most overlooked features on the all-new Type R FL5.
