2023 Lincoln Corsair, 2024 Volvo EXC90 Rendered, And 2023 Mercedes-Benz C 300 Driven: Your Morning Brief
Good morning and welcome to our daily digest of automotive news from around the globe, starting with…
While electric vehicles continue to rise in popularity, not everyone will have the flexibility to charge at home. That’s because renters and condo-dwellers often cannot install their own solutions. According to J.D. Power, home equipment accounts for 84 percent of all EV charging across the U.S., while owning a level 2 charger at home was one of the most significant contributors to overall satisfaction with EV ownership. Lack of public charging is still a major deterrent to those who are considering a new EV, although, in the future, landlords that want to install chargers for their tenants will get tax incentives.
Lincoln has released a single teaser image of its upcoming 2023 Corsair ahead of its debut later today. From what we can see, the facelifted SUV features slightly tweaked LED daytime running lights while removing some elements from the front to make the car look cleaner.
The replacement for Volvo’s flagship SUV looks like it will fully embrace the electric revolution, while a facelifted version of the existing XC90 will continue to be sold alongside the new car. Possible names for the new EV are either the EXC90 or the less cumbersome Embla. Either way, our independent illustrations depict what the new vehicle could look like, with similarities shared with last year’s Recharge Concept.
The long-awaited manual transmission Toyota Supra is here to answer the prayers of those who crave a mechanical connection with their machine, and we’ve tested it.

Will BMW come out with a manual Z4? Find out at the link.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz C 300 is more like a miniature S-Class than ever before, and it’s not just the design cues that are shared, both inside and out. The sedan is filled with more tech, more space, and a more streamlined lineup. It’s not all good, though. While the screens are impressive, the menu system can be convoluted to operate, and the capacitive buttons don’t always work as intended. Does it stand up to the competition? Find out in our full review.

We know the urge to drive at a young age can be strong, but those who do decide to get behind the wheel before they can see over it usually end up in some rather precarious situations. Thankfully, the result of one 13-year-old girl’s joyride didn’t cause any serious injuries; however, the trail of destruction left in her wake is not insignificant, with three vehicles and a school bus damaged in a collision.
