At this very moment I’m a very well-pampered, mostly-willing hostage of Nissan at some Napa Valley resort that seems to be entirely populated with elderly folks on electric scooters. Nissan is showing their latest version of their very sleek and advanced electric scooter, the Leaf, to me and other journalists very…
Global demand for cobalt and nickel, two of the essential elements in electric car batteries, has never been higher. But where do all those metals come from? And do we even have enough for our electrified future? The answers to those questions are getting increasingly complex.
I heard about Volkswagen discussing the possibility of a new, electric, MEB-archicture Kübelwagen or Thing a couple days ago, but was hesitant to write about it because, well, I’m not sure if it’s just idle talk or if there’s some grain of seriousness behind it. I guess it doesn’t really matter, because it’s…
As other automakers and electric-minded newcomers continue to take a swing at replacing the everyday commuter car with something powered solely with batteries, Nissan seems to be interested in staying in a smaller part of the slowly-growing EV segment with its upcoming next-generation Leaf.
I do not hate the idea of electric cars, and nor do I hate the idea of a new electric car company trying to sell an electric Miata knockoff. I just don’t want it to look like I bought it in the kids section of a Walmart.
Where is your range anxiety now?! For the first time ever, an all-electric vehicle finished one of the most grueling races on the planet: the Dakar Rally.
No recent vehicle is more polarizing at Jalopnik, in the industry or in automotive culture than the Tesla Model X right now. Why? Because it’s a fundamentally promising vehicle that looks like a blanched egg, and from a company that’s going through growing pains. You’ve heard a lot of good and bad, but is the Model X…
Volkswagen, eager to get away from anything with any emissions whatsoever, has released a teaser image of a new all-electric concept car they plan to show at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. They’re calling it an “iconic design study,” which is carmaker-talk for “the production car won’t look nearly as cool.”
General Motors was really excited about introducing the all-electric Chevy Bolt earlier this year, being the only major automaker to bring a practical 200 mile range EV rival to Tesla’s Model 3 to market an entire year sooner. The problem with the Bolt is that it won’t be exciting to American buyers.
If those numbers aren’t making your internal horseshit alarms beep and wail like aroused banshees, it’s probably time to change the 9-volt in there. But that doesn’t mean there’s not something interesting here, so let’s take a quick look at what we know about the Techrules supercar.
Hopeful electric-autonomous automaker Faraday Future has patented its very own electric vehicle power inverter, which is pretty impressive considering the company has had a really hard time lately getting just about anything done.
Yesterday, we reported on a significant security hole with Nissan Leafs (and electric eNV200 vans) that would allow some HVAC systems and a good amount of owner data to be accessed via the web. The hole was, pretty much, that there was no real security at all. Happily, it looks like Nissan is taking the issue…
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.
