  • Car options: do’s and don'ts

    Nov 12, 2019

  • These are the 20 most important vehicles for 2020

    Oct 16, 2019
    The vehicle industry has come to a historical crossroads. After a hegemony of more than 120 years, the combustion engine is slowly getting ready to pass the torch to its electronic successor, especially since the European Union is forcing vehicle manufacturers, via the imminent CO2 quota, to increase the greening speed of its range. Does that also mean that 2020 will be written in the history books as the year of the electric breakthrough? Only time (and the client) will tell, but the manufacturers have clearly already done their homework...

  • CO2 targets for 2021: a race against time

    Feb 18, 2019
    From 2021 onwards, the automobile industry must reduce CO2 emissions of new cars to 95 g CO2/km. This is due to a new European standard which manufacturers and the industry must adhere to.

But now it's a race against time...

  • Diesel fear the cause of unsold stock in cars worth 805.2 million euros

    Jan 29, 2019
    Nearly 30% of the used cars currently for sale in our country have been waiting on a new owner for more than four months. This accounts for unsold stock at a total market value of 805.2 million. This was established through research conducted by Gocar DATA, the data analysis specialist on the vehicle market. Four months is really long, especially when you realise dealers usually expect a car to be sold within two months at most. In the meanwhile, the costs to keep them in stock keep on rising - up to 840 euro per car - so more and more dealers have been forced to look towards other European markets. That's why Gocar DATA entered into partnership with CarsOnTheWeb, the international online auction website for the car trade.

  • Electric vs combustion engine: and the winner is...

    Jan 15, 2019
    There are many contradictory studies and reports on the ecological footprint of electric cars. It has become a nonsense debate in which supporters and opponents bombard each other with arguments. But who is actually right? This is what Europe wanted to know, which is why the European Environment Agency (EEA) carried out an in-depth study for the European Commission. The result: an extensive 80-page piece of work that shows the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of all types of electric vehicles and compares it to those with combustion engines.
