Volkswagen's e-Golf represents a significant departure from VW's standard U.S. efficiency strategy. Anybody halfway familiar with Volkswagen's products will recognize the TDI name, which is given to the brand's diesel offerings. VW offers diesel models for just about every car in its U.S. lineup (sorry, Eos), but as the world moves towards electrification, it would be silly for VW to just ignore that. And so, we have ourselves an electrified Volkswagen, the e-Golf.
People have plenty to complain about with the 2015 BMW M4. Of course, these complaints are minor, and completely separate from the car itself. For example, some people don't like that it's not an M3 Coupe. Some people also don't like the fact that it's turbocharged. Both of those groups are silly, though; once you've had a bit of seat time in the new M4, you'll forget all about natural aspiration and whatever number is plastered on the back.
The first slimy invertebrate to puff up its newly mutated air sacs and leave the roiling oceans of early Earth to traverse the dry surfaces set the template for all future human beings, who did little else but migrate to all corners of the planet, and then, having become the uncontested masters of the surface world, devised ever faster and more efficient means of moving through the land by first cultivating an understanding of the physical properties of the universe and then inventing technologies to exploit them.
