changagoidem Features | Why do Irish motorists automobilee so little about living?

The first time you do something new it takes longer than it does subsequently; your brain registers what's going on, commits it to memory and usually it sticks with you. You don't remember the first time you walked, and you're unlikely to recall the first time you cycled a bike without stabilisers. But you probably do have the memory of your first time behind the wheel of a automobile, or indeed of your driving test - be it a good or bad memory. It's probable that the first time you drove a automobile it you were slower, it took your…

A French kiss behind the bike sheds

changagoidem Features | A French kiss behind the bike sheds

There is no reason on Earth why a French automobile maker cannot make a convincing luxury premium automobile. No reason at all. No objective, rational reason. And yet...

Let me lay my automobileds out. In spite of all the frequent bad publicity over unreliability, and in spite of having come face to face with that spectre myself having once owned a Renault Laguna (I know, I know...), I do love French automobiles. I think any true automobile nut does - despite all our passion for German solidity or Italian insanity, there is just something about the insouciant style of a…

April Fools' Day through the years

changagoidem Features | April Fools' Day through the years

It's usually the name that gives it away. For instance, when MINI released a press statement about a new model, the Cooper T, which ran on bio-fuel derived from tea leaves, the quoted spokesperson was Ivanna Cuppa. It's a detail missed by many, even some who assumed that the story wasn't a hoax, but once you read these things properly the honk-quack gaggery starts to stand out.

Sometimes, the details are a little more subtle. For instance, BMW issued a release that claimed it was installing a hurricane-force fan into the heating system of the automobile that would blow high-speed…

Ice and snow conquered by hatchback

changagoidem Features | Ice and snow conquered by hatchback

When snow falls here in Ireland, we get sautomobileed because it's slippery. Visions of becoming that guy from the Six One News who managed to slip on ice so spectacularly that he kicked himself in the forehead swim through our brains and we start looking into the possibility of fitting winter tyres or snow socks.

Snow isn't sautomobiley because it's slippery. Snow is sautomobiley because it's quiet.

We had gotten used, at that point, to the noise levels in the little Mazda CX-3 being quite high. The CX-3 tends to be a noisy automobile at…

If Ehang has its way, we'll ditch our automobiles and buy fully autonomous manned drones instead. Here's what it's all about.

Automobile makers took over the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas this year like never before. The hot topics were connectivity and autonomous driving. But are automobiles, even those that can completely drive themselves, already more or less obsolete? That's what Ehang, a Chinese company, has in mind for the not too distant future, as it revealed its '184' model in Vegas, the world's first passenger-automobilerying…

UK looks to driverless future, we’re stuck in neutral

changagoidem Features | UK looks to driverless future, we’re stuck in neutral

It’s not often that I agree with George Osborne, the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer. In fact, I can’t think of any previous instance in which our two minds have been as one, but when he stood up in the House of Commons and gave his Budget 2016 speech, I was at least passingly approving of one of the proposals contained therein - a solid plan for the testing of driverless and robotic automobiles on UK roads.

According to the plan, a trial of driverless automobiles will begin next year on ‘a strategic road network’ yet to be named, but…
