Watch This Electric Race Car Tear It Up With Its Superfast RC Twin

Qualcomm wants to bring wireless charging to Formula E electric race cars, and probably your plug-in Prius some day too. To test the tech they’re using a tiny RC version and, naturally, racing it against the real thing. So that’s how you make recharging a battery look exciting. » 6/30/15 6:00pm 6/30/15 6:00pm

You Can See The Future From The Cockpit Of This All-Electric Race Car

The formula for Formula racing hasn't really evolved. F1 continues to be a 200-MPH soap opera and only die-hards pay attention to the feeder series below it. Formula E offers something different. It's close-quarter racing brimming with cutting-edge technology that, for the first time in decades, is not only… » 3/13/15 12:32pm 3/13/15 12:32pm

This Windowless Autonomous Racer Promises A 4-Minute Le Mans Lap

Autonomous race cars sound idiotic at first glance. And second. But there's something to this concept from the Italian designers at ED. The Torq isn't just a self-driving, electric racer with over 1,300 lb-ft of torque. It's pointing towards a new direction for endurance racing. It's also total bullshit, at least for… » 3/04/15 7:50pm 3/04/15 7:50pm

Kia Trail'ster e-AWD Could Be An Ultra-Efficient Jeep Renegade Fighter

With hype around the 2015 Jeep Renegade maxing out, Kia reckons it can come play with its own spin on the micro "off-roader" idea. The Kia Trail'ster concept has meaty cladding, a roll-back softtop, and a drivetrain that makes it a very interesting proposition, especially if you value efficiency over dirt driving. » 2/12/15 10:24am 2/12/15 10:24am

​You Can't Plug In This Sweet Electric Scooter

We've already established that electric motorcycles don't have to be stodgy appliances, but the problem – as always – is charging and range. So what if you nixed the amount of time it takes to juice up with a ubiquitous infrastructure of swappable batteries? That's what Gogoro is trying to do.

​This Electric Beetle Is A Masterpiece With A Price To Match

I've been on a resto-mod kick for the past few months, fantasizing about hopping-up a Volvo 122S, a vintage Mercedes, or maybe a Squareback. The combination of classic style and new tech is just too damn enticing, and on more than one occasion I've thought about going electric. Or I could just buy this. » 10/30/14 10:00pm 10/30/14 10:00pm

We're Still Waiting For The Ultimate Electric Hoon Machine

BRD has been promising us an electric supermoto for over three years. We've been patient. We've asked questions. We've sat by while it scored a Tesla exec to sit on its board and got a $4.5 million round of fresh funding. Now it looks like they're finally ready to deliver, but first, it's time for... rebranding? » 10/16/14 6:43pm 10/16/14 6:43pm

The Renovo Coupe Is An Electric Shelby With 1,000 LB-FT Of Torque

Every year, some company with more ambition than experience puts out a press release and a rendering and a litany of promises about revolutionary, all-electric performance. Then silence. It's the cult of ego and vaporware. Renovo is not a member, and it's out to prove it with an electric Shelby Daytona with 1,000… » 8/15/14 9:40am 8/15/14 9:40am
