This is the dumbest and best thing I’ve seen anyone do with an electric vehicle.
The Nikola Motor Company materialized a few months ago with sleek concept photos and incredible stats on an electric semi truck apparently coming soon. Twelve hundred miles of range! Zero emissions! Cheaper than diesel! And today, even more. Now the company says it will put 50 hydrogen stations in North America by…
When Tesla first hit the market, everyone sort of laughed that they were building an electric car off of a bunch of laptop batteries. Wasn’t there something better for them to use? As it turns out, not really. And there are a few reasons why we’re still stuck in that lithium-ion technology.
What happens when you have to drive your electric-only Volkswagen e-Golf out of Hollywood to some inland dustbowl with no charger? You get creative. And you end up burning hydrocarbons anyway.
Look, Porsche, I’m one of your biggest fans, and I hate to see you go down a path of self-destruction. I care. I really do! But you really need to get clean, stop doing hard drugs and back away from this plan to have a “coupe” crossover with four doors and a squashed butt.
Mercedes is reportedly planning to spin-off a new, all-electric sub-brand for its electric vehicle efforts, similar to BMW’s i-brand. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Mercedes is an automaker with a history full of great names, which is exactly why they shouldn’t try anything new.
When you’re the only Tesla owner in your entire city, in your entire region, things can get strange. For instance, your regional utility can end up building a charging station just for you alone.
On a little stretch of road in Sweden, cables have been strung up about 18 feet over the asphalt to feed trucks with electricity. While connected, the trucks will run off the grid instead of their own engines.
The U.S. military has been talking about “stealth motorcycles” for years. As of this month, two tech outfits have what seem to be viable prototypes that will both be funded for another revision.
The 2017 BMW i3 will be available with a new 33 kWh battery, increasing the car’s max pure-electric range to 114 miles. That’s a 50 percent battery bump translating to an extra 33 miles of drivable distance.
It turns out that 2016's best electric car-related Internet prank isn’t the Tesla Model 3 after all. (Don’t worry, you’ll be able to buy one someday. Really, you will.) It was this, the shockingly elaborate website for the Chevrolet Jolt, a car that is 100 percent not real.
Electric cars are on the rise, but there are still plenty of setbacks that come with the more environmentally conscious choice. Charging? Sounds like a long wait. No plug nearby? Too bad. That’s where the (fictional) Mercedes AA Class comes in, powered by AA batteries and free of any other worries. Well, kind of.
California residents interested in electric vehicles should probably head out to the dealership this week, if they’re on the higher end of the income spectrum—starting March 29, the state’s rebate program for EVs will put an income cap on getting any money back at all.
The electric-car market is growing, but remains small. A majority of drivers still stop at the station regularly, filling up their gas-guzzling vehicles and allowing the oil industry to stay in business. But Bloomberg projects more than a third of all cars will be electric by 2040, and the oil companies aren’t buying…
California Highway Patrol says a cement truck collided with a small pickup in Newport Beach, CA this morning causing carnage across multiple lanes. The cement truck crushed this BMW i8 electric sports car as it toppled to a halt.
