Magazine Description

In this issue

During a week of loadshedding, Jaguar launched the all-electric I-Pace. Next up, for hot-weather testing, arrived the Mercedes EQ C. Regardless of the current cancerous state of our country’s power supply the bottom line is that a bevy of electric cars, headed our way, is inevitable. Stick my neck out further and I’ll write their excitement above many turbo charged petrol sportscars. Which is essentially still adhering with the TopGear tenet of performance in a new revolutionary way. They’re the new buzz words. We traverse the full spectrum of EVs this month by corralling the Jaguar I-Pace into an SUV war against Audi’s e-tron and Tesla’s Model X. Should Elon Musk be worried? We visit the Geneva Motor Show to have a second look at Honda’s E Prototype, which is as funky as ever although if it’s power you’re after the Pininfarina Battista – this month’s 1400kW cover car - takes some beating. A seismic industry revolution brings with it new players, so you’ll be able to read about RIMAC’s and Polestar’s refreshing approach to EV mobility which could leave the bigger brands vulnerable to the rapidly changing landscape. The good news is that both brands are headed up by people who love cars and want to ensure their future. But this month’s TopGearSA also takes a small reprieve from electric cars: our drives section includes Porsche 911 cabriolet, BMW 3 Series, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Renault Koleos and the Toyota Corolla hatch. Plus all the titbits from the fascinating world of cars in our monthly Intake section. We trust you’ll enjoy this digital issue of TopGearSA. Remember to charge up that device before loadshedding strikes again. Thanks for reading. Andrew Leopold Editor
