A four day emergency legislative session to secure a deal for an in-state factory with electric automaker Faraday Future will end up costing the State of Nevada a quarter of a million dollars on top of the $335 million in tax incentives and public funding that resulted from the meeting.
Steve Zadesky, the Apple veteran said to be overseeing the tech brand’s alleged development of an electric vehicle, is reportedly leaving the project and the company for undisclosed reasons.
Wannabe electric automaker Faraday Future had amassed an impressive amount of hype going into CES, only to drop the ball and disappoint everybody looking for something real. Then the interviews started, and things got even messier.
Chevy has been promising that its brand new Bolt all-electric vehicle will go on sale later this year at “around $30,000,” which sounded pretty sweet, if not a little vague. Well now we have some solid figures, with the Bolt going on sale for $37,500 before federal tax credits.
We’ve been expecting the new all-electric Chevrolet Bolt to show up at CES this week, and we finally have a pretty good idea of what the production version will bring to the table.
Faraday Future has, until now, remained a huge mystery to both the car and tech worlds. It has tremendous Chinese financing, teased an autonomous car concept, secured a billion dollar factory in Nevada, and hyped up a big hit-or-miss reveal at this year’s CES expo. Finally, we know what it claims to have in store, and…
Ironically, it was easier to decide to purchase an all electric Solar Orange BMW i3 than it was to decide on which Level 2 Charger to buy. BMW sells a very nice looking charger, the BMW i Charging Station, for $1,080 and as with all other chargers installation is extra.
Porsche's 911 has always been an electrifying ride. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe cabriolet takes that to the extreme, trading its gas-passing flat six for 144 volts of captured lightning. I wonder if you'll find its price equally electrifying?
In the heartland of England, a not much covered press conference took place about probably one of the most exciting racing series in the future. Here are some samples.
Last week, we showed you the Illuminati Motor Works Seven, a home-built electric car and Automotive X Prize competitor that gets an utterly astounding 207 MPGe. Today, we're hosting a live Q&A with Kevin Smith, who built the car, and journalist Jason Fagone, whose book Ingenious tells the engrossing story of the X…
Zelectric Motors is the brainchild of passionate VW fans David Benardo and Bonnie Rodgers. In 2011, they decided to put their east coast creative agency in their rearview mirror and head back home to California. With a lifelong affinity for the VW brand and decades spent working with tech companies, they envisioned a…
Tesla may have made electric cars cool, but they still cost a lot of cold hard cash. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe CRX will let you rock down to electric avenue for a ton less, but is its price low enough to prevent a chilly reception when you get there?
While Audi has cancelled the R8 E-Tron project, Mercedes-AMG just went around the Nordschleife in a record time of 7:56.234 minutes with the electrified SLS. Mission accomplished.
Just a bit ago, Elon Musk entwitenated a tweet that got us all thinking about what this guy's up to now. This one is full of all kinds of possibility:
The modern Tesla is known for making modern electric cars, but the truth is the original Nikola Tesla made an electric car — and he did it all without batteries, way back in 1931. Since it was the man's 156th birthday earlier this month, and since that man essentially created the modern world as we know it, we kind of…
The Electra King was a line of electric city cars made in Long Beach, CA from 1963-1980 something. There's one in my neighborhood I've always admired, and I finally got the chance to drive it. It's not a "good" car, by any standard, and the score reflects that. But I sure as hell like it. A lot.
