Argentinians still enjoy small vans such as this Renault Kangoo more than Brazilians do, instead of embracing the SUV bandwagon.


Argentinians seem to also be more interested in CNG, since newer generations of Diesel engines are becoming too complex for shadetree mechanics to perform some makeshift repairs.

First E-Golf

No pic, but I just spotted my first E-Golf in the wild in Kingston, Ontario, parked in a driveway.

Also saw a Hyundai EV... the car one, not the crossover style. Name escapes me at the moment!
