Lamborghini Telemetry X can monitor your driving and your stress level

If you have a fast car, the only place to let it loose is a racetrack. And because being able to buy a fast car doesn’t automatically imbue you with the driving skills to get the most out of it, you’ll probably need some coaching as well. At CES 2024, Lamborghini unveiled a high-tech take on driver coaching that uses vehicle data to improve driver’s skills. Called Telemetry X, the system is just a prototype for now, but could be applied to future Lamborghini supercars.

“In the near future, our supercars will offer not just thrills, but truly immersive driving experiences,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said in a statement. “Telemetry X is a perfect preview of the connected services our customers will be able to experience in the coming years.”

Data-gathering systems are important tools for making racing drivers and their cars faster, and more simplified versions have already begun appearing in road cars. General Motors’ Performance Data Recorder can capture data traces, lap times, and even video. And Lamborghini debuted its own system in 2020 on the Huracán STO. But Telemetry X takes things further.

The Remote Garage feature uses a 5G connection to stream video and data from the car, allowing drivers to get live feedback from a coach. That means they not only don’t have to be in the car, they can be anywhere in the world. Data from the car is combined with biometric sensors that can monitor things like heart rate and stress level to look for other areas to improve beyond driving technique.

Telemetry X also includes a “digital co-pilot” voice assistant that can analyze vehicle data and biometric data to give live feedback such as pointers on where to brake or what line to take through a corner, as well as notifications on vehicle performance.

Lamborghini tested Telemetry X on the Revuelto, the automaker’s new flagship plug-in hybrid supercar, so perhaps we’ll see it become an available feature for that model in the future. Or maybe Lamborghini will use this tech to give its first EV, previewed by the Lanzador concept first shown in 2023, an added wow factor. Stay tuned.

Honda’s electric SUV is coming soon. Here’s what we know about the 2024 Prologue

Slowly, but surely, every large car company is getting on board with electric cars. While most of them have released at least one electric model so far, some are still readying their first.

Did you know, however, that Honda is not one of those latter companies? The Honda Clarity was taken off the market a few years ago, and finally, it now looks like Honda is preparing to launch its first of a new generation of electric cars -- the 2024 Honda Prologue SUV.

Chrysler Halcyon concept is a return to glory for the minivan brand
Profile view of the Chrysler Halcyon concept with its doors open.

Chrysler plans to launch its first EV in 2025, but the foundational brand of automotive conglomerate Stellantis may be taking a detour on the road toward that goal. In 2022, Chrysler showed the Airflow, a concept car reportedly previewing that first production EV. But now the brand has a new EV concept dubbed the Halcyon.

Where the Airflow was a handsome but sensible crossover SUV, the Halcyon is a bit more fanciful. The low-slung four-door looks like Chrysler's attempt to clone the Porsche Taycan. It's even got front-fender air outlets like the Porsche, part of an aerodynamic package that includes a sliding rear diffuser and a rear spoiler. It's all meant to minimize aerodynamic drag and improve range. An air suspension system can also adjust to further enhance efficiency, or improve driving dynamics, according to Chrysler.
