EA’s Criterion Games partnered with Stellar Entertainment to bring you Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered. It’s set to launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 6, while Nintendo Switch owners get to enjoy the game on November 13. This followup to the original features enhanced visuals and cross-platform asynchronous multiplayer competition powered by Autolog, a new technology that allows players to seamlessly connect, compare and compete with their friends.
There’s Formula 1, NASCAR, and soon, an electric flying car racing series. That’s right, Airspeeder aims to be the most exciting and progressive motor sport on the planet, one where highly skilled pilots will use the sky as their playground in intense head-to-head competition. Alauda will provide multiple teams and manufacturers with the hardware as a turn-key solution. However, teams will be given the freedom to set strategy and draft pilots.
Canoo is mainly known for their electric vehicles (EV), most notably their proprietary skateboard chassis, and to show just how versatile it is, the company transformed it into a cabin-less “skatekart”. Professional racing driver Sara Price was invited to test the performance of the platform, which will be the base for all Canoo vehicles. What makes it so special? Well, the platform supports dual, front or rear motor configurations, and can generate up to 500 horsepower, while boasting over 300 miles of range with dual motors.
Unlike its predecessor, the all-new Ninebot Gokart PRO has a 4.8kW engine that produces 96Nm of torque, enabling it to hit a top speed of 23mph. It’s powered by a 432 Wh battery pack that offers up to 15.5 miles of range, complete with four air-ducts for extra cooling. Plus, it comes with an Immersive Engine Sounds Simulator, comprised of 4x8W high-power speakers, that can emulate the engine sounds of single cylinder, two cylinder, V8, or V12 engines.

All the way back in 1897, electric cars existed and found their first commercial use as taxis in Britain as well as the United States. Unfortunately, internal combustion engines (ICE) in the first decade of the 20th century took away the advantages that electric cars had due to their quicker refueling times, and cheaper production costs. However, if electric race cars existed in the 1940s, it would probably look something like Alex Baldini’s Helvezzia Tipo-6.
