Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, criticized the NSA and hinted at future leaks in a Skype interview at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas. Assange, who is holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, did not give any details about what would be included in future leaks. He also blasted the Obama administration for its weak response to the NSA leaks by Edward Snowden.
Hyundai says the Intrado is “relevant to consumers” and is “far more than a styling exercise.”
Just because it’s packing a futuristic powertrain doesn’t mean that the new Hyundai Intrado concept isn’t a preview of a crossover we’ll be seeing on the road in the near future. After all, the hydrogen CUV unveiled today at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show is from Hyundai, which is just about to launch the hydrogen-powered Tuscon fuel cell in the US later this spring. The accompanying press release even says the concept is “relevant to consumers.” If that’s not a hint, we don’t know what is.
Intrado apparently means the underside of an airplane wing, and the CUV that bears the inscription tries to lift off with a sleek, lightweight and aerodynamic body that Hyundai says, is “far more than a styling exercise” and the focus “inside and out is on meeting the needs of consumers with busy lifestyles.” That means the interior is as uncluttered as the shiny outside, with lots of carbon fiber accents. Thanks to a next-generation hydrogen fuel-cell stack and a 36 kW li-ion battery, the Intrado has a range of around 375 miles.
As if we needed another hint that the Intrado is previewing a production vehicle, we’ll leave you with a statement from Woong-chul Yang, vice chairman at Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) Namyang R&D Centre, who said the Intrado is, “a vision of how eco-friendly cars will deliver delight to our customers.” Feel free to read more in the press release below.

Think back to the 2014 Detroit Auto Show and you’ll remember the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge concept – a sedan that showed the potential design direction for a seriously high-performance take on the Japanese automaker’s new entry-level luxury sedan. And while the show car we saw in Detroit was all well and good, it lacked something. Specifically, an engine. Kind of an important thing for a performance concept, right?
Here in Geneva, Infiniti rolled out that same Q50 Eau Rouge, but with one major modification: the sedan now boasts a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 under its hood – the same engine that’s found in the Nissan GT-R supercar. In the Eau Rouge, this V6 is tuned to produce 560 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque, sent to the ground via the GT-R’s all-wheel-drive system. Of course, this super-hot Q50 is still purely a concept, but Infiniti says that the potent engine underhood will allow the sedan to sprint to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds, on its way to a top speed of over 180 mph.
The oft-fabled “four-door GT-R” still isn’t confirmed for production, so for now, all we can do is cross our fingers (and toes). Check out the Q50 and its new beating heart in the gallery, above, and scroll below to hear what that potent Eau Rouge sounds like.

Set for a debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next week, images of the Volvo Concept Estate have found their way onto the web courtesy of Jalopnik. If the Concept Coupe from Frankfurt were a modern P1800, the Concept Estate is a modern P1800ES.
We briefly detailed the finale to Volvo’s trio of concept cars earlier this week, when images of it poked out finished in a custom car cover. Now, with a batch of uncovered images at hand, we’re able to see just how pretty this brown beauty really is.
Below the beltline, this is pretty much the Concept Coupe, featuring the same T-shaped headlights and wide, rectangular grille. Above the beltline, though, things get fun. The long, glass roof terminates in a squat, wide rear end which is set off by a pair of meaty haunches. The taillights, meanwhile, expand on the style shown on Volvo’s Detroit concept, the Concept XC Coupe. And that hatch opens up into a rather cavernous rear end.
The cabin, meanwhile, feels as funky as a piece of Swedish furniture, with white leather, orange seatbelts and carpets and an interesting, plaid-like cloth for the headliner and seat backs.
Take a look up top for our gallery of leaked images of the new Concept Estate, and stay tuned for more on this sleek Swede ahead of its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
