Many may still hold an age-old image of diesel trucks and lorries with dirty black smoke. However, Clean Diesel technology has banished that stereotype, holding a lot more promise for the future.
The world’s first series-production passenger car with a diesel engine – the Mercedes-Benz 260D – was introduced in February 1936 at the Berlin Motor Show, with 30 per cent more economy than a petrol engine.
Since then, diesel cars have evolved and come a long way.

I’ve always felt that electric cars would suit the Singapore cityscape well, because we are only that big and an electric car would be great for those who commute mainly from home to work, plus a few errands. It will take time before electric cars would become mainstream in Singapore but there is no stopping of carmakers from conducting their research.
With a focus on future mobility, Audi is developing drive electrification and one such product of theirs is the Audi A1 e-tron. The A1 e-tron is basically a plug-in hybrid version of the A1. It is an electric car that has a single 254cc rotary engine sitting in the back.
Passionate about cars and motorsports, Cheryl Tay is a familiar face in prominent local, regional as well as international automotive titles. More of her at www.cheryl-tay.com. She also happens to be a recent gym and fitness convert. Here she meets a female weightlifting buff who is a lot more muscular than your average girl — or guy, for that matter.
I first heard of Melissa Sarah Wee from fellow gym-going friends, who warned me not to train too hard lest I start looking like her.
So I checked her out on Instagram and my jaw dropped.
Melissa is not a bodybuilder or a fitness trainer by profession, but she has the kind of physique that will put many guys to shame (that is not my goal, by the way).
Curious to find out more about her and how much effort it took to get that body, I approached her for an interview, where she chatted freely about her journey.
