2012 Tesla Model S Charging
Tesla's electric Model S combines unprecedented driving range and quick charging times. Thanks to the many different plug adapters, you have flexibility over how quickly the Model S can charge. Standard Level 1 charging at home can take up to 12 hours, while a special 240v plug can return up to 30 miles per hour of charging, eliminating the need to install a costly Level 2 home charging unit. With advanced technology comes issues, however. Cars.com Reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder takes a look at some of the grievances that bothered him like the unique door handles, obnoxious seat-bottom weight sensors and charging port door.

What i ahve to say about the 2013 M37: The M got resdesinged in 2011 and while it's still a decent car it may not be the best. It offers a variety of powertrains ranging from a V6, a Hybrid, and a V8. Infiniti has been slipping a little on their material quality, but this car seems to be in very good shape. The M is a very comfortable car as well and the dash is a nice conservative styling point. The exterior is also stylish with nice HID Headlamps and LED Tailamps with a nice bulbous front end. The M is still a great car, but the Lexus GS offers more luxury features and has been redesigned for 2013 and it has better fuel economy, it also offers a Hybrid too all at the same price as the M.

2014 BMW X5
2014 BMW X5
These are the first images with the 2014 BMW X5 ahead of its launch sometime this year.
The third generation of the German SUV -- codenamed F15 -- has been spotted on a recently launched brochure of scale models made by Jadi Modelcraft. The photos were uploaded on the Facebook account of one of their dealers (Diecast Empire) and we get to see how the new X5 is shaping up.
If these images turn out to be accurate, the 2014 X5 will get the front fascia of the 3-Series, with the air vents on both sides of the front bumper from the 4-Series, while at the back the taillights come from the X3. We already know the interior will be more premium and in the United States (at least) it will be offered with a third-row seating option.
There aren't any confirmed details about the engine lineup, but it could include a 2.0-liter diesel with 245 hp (183 kW), a 3.0-liter diesel with 302 hp (225 kW) and a V8 4.4-liter twin-turbo generating 402 hp (300 kW). A hybrid variant is also possible, featuring a 3.0-liter twin-turbo and an electric motor generating a combined output of 335 hp (340 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm).
The X5 M is expected to get a different wheel/tire combo, a specially tuned suspension and slightly more power from the V8 4.4-liter turbo which in the current X5 M version puts out 547 hp (408 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm).

Infiniti FX SUV - CarBuyer
For the full review: http://www.carbuyer.co.uk/reviews/infiniti/fx/sports-utility-vehicle/review
There is no slow FX in the line-up, with huge petrol and diesel engines being the order of the day. Both petrol models boast 0-62mph times under 7 seconds, with the quickest even dipping under the six second barrier. A stiff set-up means it corners well too but it's worth taking a test drive to see if the ride is soft enough to live with on a daily basis.

2013 Infiniti JX35 Test Drive & Luxury Crossover Review Video
http://www.autobytel.com/infiniti/jx35/2013/ The 2013 Infiniti JX35 is an all-new crossover vehicle built on the Nissan Murano platform. Infiniti currently has a couple of great 5-passenger luxury vehicles like the FX and EX. If you are looking for a 7-passenger luxury vehicle, then the QX56 was your only choice. But that full sized SUV is pretty expensive. The Infiniti JX35 fills the need for a reasonably priced 7-passenger vehicle. The base price on the JX35 is $40,450.
Under the hood the 2013 Infiniti JX35 is powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine. This is the same engine that powers the Nissan Altima and Maxima. Power output is 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft. of torque. The JX35 is a front wheel drive crossover with a CVT transmission. The Infiniti JX35 with FWD gets 18 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway which is very respectable for a 7-passenger luxury crossover.
Infiniti really focused on the amount of seating space in both the 2nd and 3rd rows. What's really innovative is not just the amount of room but how easy it is to access the 3rd row seating area. The seats fold and slide with a simple button and push of the hand. The inside of the Infiniti JX35 is all about luxury and comfort. The maple word trim gives a warm and natural feel. Many of the surfaces are wrapped in beautiful leather. The 2nd and 3rd rows can be folded flat to provide a ton of storage space. There is also a cargo bin built into the floor for extra space. The 2 panoramic moonroofs offer an outstanding view of the sky above for the rear occupants.
Technology wise the 2013 Infiniti JX35 sports the latest advancements including the revolutionary Back-up Collision Intervention system. If you are backing up and a small child, car, or anything else gets in the way; the system will first alert the driver then stop the vehicle if necessary. There are a couple of sensors located at the rear of the vehicle that provide a 180 degree will sense of the surrounding area. The JX35 comes packed with tons of features and options. This is the perfect choice for those looking for a 7-passenger luxury vehicle.
