We have never known a time where the world did not covet oil. The abundance, energy density and fluidity of this so-called ‘black gold’ has made it an easy choice for powering everything from cars to ships to planes; even our heating.

Oil has brought astronomical wealth to both companies and countries, particularly in the middle east where five of the oil-producing nations now belong to the 25 wealthiest countries in the world.

For High Performance: 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a great antidote for social distancing. During a summertime Saturday drive just north of Los Angeles, pedestrians wave, motorcyclists flash thumbs-ups, and a surfer pulling on his wetsuit simply points and stares. It’s the most socializing I’ve done in months.

The Taycan is Porsche’s first-ever all-electric vehicle, and the Turbo S is the most powerful version of the Taycan, so it makes sense that the car commands so much attention. The four-door sedan boasts unmistakable Porsche design elements even people who don’t care about cars can recognize: bulging fenders, a swooping roofline, all-around beauty. (It’s also got an unmistakable Porsche price: $185,000.) But the roads in and around L.A. are teeming with luxury automobiles. What’s so notable about the Turbo S?

The answer is the sound — or lack of it. When people see, say, a

Gas may be cheap and the future may be uncertain, but automakers around the world have followed Tesla’s lead and pushed forward in a rush to produce electric vehicles in a big way. While we’ve seen EVs arrive from manufacturers like GM and Nissan in fits and starts over the years, 2021 will see scores of new entrants from the big brands. Small upstarts, too, will join the fray, like domestic manufacturer Rivian, plus at least one surprising name from the past: Hummer. If the former symbol of gas-guzzling excess can go electric, a revolution is definitely around the corner.

putri titian

The first of a £1billion nationwide network of more than 100 electric forecourts is nearing completion, with the bespoke location near Braintree in Essex due to be finished in November following delays caused by the coronavirus.

It will become the first custom-built charging station in the UK with 24 rapid chargers and 6 Tesla Superchargers on site to deliver up to 350kW of power to electric cars.

The powerful devices should replenish the batteries of the latest plug-in models in between 20 and 30 minutes – in which time drivers can head into a state-of-the-art building with shops including a Costa Coffee, WH Smith and Booths high-end supermarket.

The company behind the network, Gridserve, has revealed a number of new images showing the location taking shape ahead of the grand opening before the end of the year.

Construction has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic but should be completed in November
