If you want a demonstration on how not to exit a parking lot, look no further than this video.

Very few details about this clip have been provided but it appears to have been filmed somewhere in Asia and shows a Toyota making a break for it and attempting to “escape” from its owner.

The dashcam footage shows the female driver of the Toyota exiting the car in order to pay for parking and open up the boom gate to the parking lot. All of a sudden, the car starts to accelerate forward and smashes through the boom gate.

The driver can be seen running alongside the car as it crosses onto a road but is powerless to stop it. The Toyota only grinds to a halt when it slams into the side of a parked car.

It’s hard to say with certainty what happened here but in all likelihood, the driver simply left the car in drive and failed to apply the handbrake. Of course, there’s also a possibility the car experienced some kind of mechanical issue that saw it slip out of gear and accelerate forward.

The extent of the damage caused to the Toyota and the car it hit is unclear but in all likelihood, the Toyota will at least need a new bumper and grille while the doors of the vehicle it hit may need to be replaced.

 


MINI introduced the Countryman Boardwalk Edition last December and now the company has announced the crossover is headed stateside.

Based on the Countryman Cooper S, the Boardwalk Edition features a Deep Laguna Metallic exterior which is contrasted by a black roof and matching mirror caps.

Other highlights include Piano Black exterior trim, special side scuttles and 18-inch alloy wheels with a black finish. Buyers will also find LED lighting units, auto-dimming mirrors and a Comfort Access keyless entry system.

Moving into the cabin, the crossover has been outfitted with “cross punch” black leather seats as well as Boardwalk badging on the dashboard and door sill plates. The special edition also comes standard with the Touchscreen Navigation Package.

Under the hood, there’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 192 hp (143 kW / 195 PS) and 206 lb-ft (279 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to an automatic transmission which enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in as little as 7.1 seconds.

The 2022 MINI Countryman Boardwalk Edition will arrive at U.S. dealerships next month and pricing will begin at $38,365 for the front-wheel drive variant and $40,365 for the all-wheel drive model – excluding a destination and handling fee of $850.

BRP has announced plans to offer electric vehicles in each of their product lines by the end of 2026.

In order to achieve this goal, the company is investing $300 million over five years to pay for “product development, specialized equipment, infrastructure, production tooling and facilities.”

BRP is keeping details under wraps, but said the first model will arrive within two years. It will be followed by a “rapid roll-out across all product lines.” While specifics are lacking, we can expect to see electric Sea-Doos and Can-Ams as well as electric snowmobiles from Lynx and Ski-Doo.

The EVs will use Rotax modular electric powerpack technology and be created with the assistance of a new electric vehicle development center in Canada. The latter will feature “state-of-the-art equipment including several sophisticated test benches and dynamometers, plus an ultramodern robotized manufacturing cell for electric batteries.”

BRP CEO José Boisjoli stated, “We have always said electrification was not a question of ‘if’ but a question of ‘when.’ Today, we’re very excited to unveil more details of our plan to deliver market-shaping products that will enhance the consumer experience by offering new electric options.” He added the company is “leveraging our engineering know-how and innovation capabilities to define the best strategy for developing electric-powered products.”

While a lot of questions remain, the original EV concepts give us an idea of what to expect. They included an electric Sea-Doo personal watercraft, an electric version of the Can-Am Ryker and a slick electric motorcycle.
