So far the [INAUDIBLE] has 23 reports of smoke and/or fire from these pretensioners and owners should expect to see notifications via first class mail BMW isn't content to let Apple, Amazon, and Google have all the fun when it comes to virtual assistants.
It announced its very own intelligent personal assistant today, which will be able to address climate control, infotainment, explain vehicle features, and even talk to lonely drivers.
BMW plans to release the assistant in March of 2019 with support for 23 languages.
Ford is getting more and more serious about building a Mustang inspired electric crossover.
And they teased us with a sketch of what its tail lights will very likely look like.
Apart from being as strong a confirmation as you can get that absolutely nothing is sacred, the Mustang crossover will likely see a release date of 2020 and pack 300 miles of all electric range.
