    Volkswagen ID.4 82kWh review: Spacious, pleasant, and boasting excellent range
    June 15, 2024 9:00 AM

    For evidence, look no further than the fact that the first fully electric Volkswagen to officially go on sale in Singapore is not the Golf-reminiscent ID.3, but a broad-shouldered, bulbous SUV: Called the Volkswagen ID.4.

    Instead, four slightly varying flavours of its mid-sized electric SUV format have landed in its showroom, with a suitable outfit for every sort of driver.

    As an SUV, the ID.4 also delivers on one important front: Its electronic tailgate opens up to a generous, nicely-shaped 543-litre boot.

    Though not the cheapest or most new-age of the electric SUV lot today, the ID.4 ultimately promises long-wearing and long-ranged satisfaction — as a spacious, comfortable, decently nice-to-drive, and suitably modern family machine.

    The car with no rear window: Polestar 4 previewed in Singapore
    June 15, 2024 7:00 AM

    Wearnes Automotive, the official dealer for Polestar Singapore, held a special preview showcase for the Polestar 4, a new coupe SUV from the Swedish electric car brand that features a unique design element.

    A quick look around the car reveals that the Polestar 4 lacks a rear window, a design choice which Polestar says helps to give the car "a new kind of immersive rear occupant experience".

    Despite the missing rear window, Polestar says that the car remains spacious and airy, thanks to the large glass roof that extends well beyond the rear occupants' heads.

    The other highlight is the fact that the Polestar 4 is the fastest production Polestar model to date.

    'Maybe this sport's not fair': US swimmers vent over doping controversy
    June 15, 2024 5:35 AM

    INDIANAPOLIS - Faith in a level playing field at international competitions has been shaken by reports that Chinese swimmers had tested positive for banned substances ahead of the Tokyo Games in 2021, US swimmers said on the eve of the Olympic Trials in Indianapolis.

    The New York Times in April reported that 23 Chinese swimmers tested positive before the Tokyo Games but were allowed to compete anyway.

    "It's really frustrating for athletes to always have in the back of our mind that maybe this sport's not fair," two-time Olympic gold medalist Lilly King told reporters.

    The US Olympic Swimming Trials involve more than 1,000 athletes and are being held over nine consecutive nights at Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the NFL's Indianapolis Colts.
