If you’ve been following news of the auto industry, you’ve likely heard about how China’s auto industry has been growing exponentially in the last few years. That said, they’ve still shown more potential than actual progress… until now. In a recent interview, an executive of Volvo claimed that the company plans to begin exporting Chinese-made cars to the United States as early as next year. Volvo is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, a company that ranks highly among China’s leading car makers. Chery also ranks among the makers, having expressed intentions of penetrating US auto markets since 2005, when it announced that it had teamedRead More →

Just the other day I was hauling my teardrop trailer to the DMV to get registered when its little door swung open as I was parking and hit my car’s tail light. It caused a small crack to the tail light that’s not much wider than a 32nd of an inch, but is located towards the bottom corner of the light in such a way that it could eventually cause a larger corner chunk of the tail light to pop off. I’m not trying to replace the part, and in fact the internet tells me I don’t have to. There are a lot of productsRead More →

Clearly the manufacture of electric cars has been steadily building momentum since Toyota released its first Prius in 2001. However, the last decade and a half has not quite shown the electric car over haul that environmentalists (and electric car manufacturers) would have liked to see. Now that gas prices are diving deeper and deeper into early 2000’s rates, the incentive to get an electric car seems to be lessened that much more. So when can we expect electric cars to hit their stride and take over the market, if ever? According to research firm Bloomberg New Energy Finance, we can expect the electric car boom toRead More →

In years past there has been an old acronym that sums up American and non-Americans sentiments towards the Ford brand; that is when you hear the word Ford you associate it with the thought (Fixed Or Repaired Daily). For many people when they hear the word Ford its a kind of punch line, and there is no real justification for a serious car buyer to get one outside of nostalgia or national pride. All of that seems to be changing with Ford rolling out a whole new fleet that features innovative engineering and fuel economy as well has just flat out good style and aesthetics.Read More →

When looking for an economy car there are certain sacrifices you need to make for yourself. For instance you are either going to find something that is sleek but not powerful, or something that is fuel efficient but looks like crap. You are usually pressed with the task of finding what quality is most important for you, and what qualities you are willing to settle for. If you are looking for something for under $18,000 there is usually not too much you can do considering the limited price point when it comes to new cars; or is there? recent break through in manufacturing and designRead More →

To the surprise of some, Germany lags behind many of its fellow European nations in terms of reducing its carbon emissions. Members of the German populace unsatisfied with Germany’s standing in the movement towards greener technology have proposed a number of ways for the European powerhouse to catch up to its more sustainable neighbors, without injuring its enormous auto industry. Take Parliament member Dieter Janecek, a member of the Green Party, who recently made public his plan to ban gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles by 2025. “The federal government must have the courage to enforce changes in the transport sector, to set the pace for innovationRead More →

on the road. They are beautiful design and allow you plug in anywhere into any standard outlet, in half the time with a 240 volt outlet or charging station. A full charge in this one will cost you less than 2 dollars. if you can believe it, and that comes out to about 5 cents a mile give or take give terrain and load you are hauling. VTRUS is something that also qualifies you for a $7,500 federal tax break so that is pretty nice, not to mention many blue states are offering you thousands in additional clean fuel credits across several states. This hasRead More →

Apparently someone saw the scene in Austin Powers where Austin gets his golf cart stuck in the hallway, trying to turn around, and thought, “I can fix this.” That man’s name is William Liddiard and he is the inventor of the appropriately titled Liddiard Wheel – the omnidirectional wheels that “should” clear up a lot of the driver vs. driver interation. Where there’s cursing and gesticulating, there’s a hilarious problem that someone needs to pay attention to, and Mr. Liddiard has signed up for this one. Close your eyes. Let’s go to the grocery store parking lot a few days back. Remember the spot right by theRead More →

Recently the 2016 Chevy Corvette went head to head against the 2016 Porsche 911. In their coverage they tried to cover every metric not just speed and handling in an attempt to determine an all around better driving and ownership experience.In so doing they wanted to try to address a lasting narrative that went something like, Porsche is simply the superior car, at best the argument is that Corvette is an option that is more cost effective, but everyone knew that the better of the two is the Bavarian big dogs. That is what most people usually remember and think but Corvette made a compelling argumentRead More →

Samsung Italia recently unveiled a concept that it calls the “Smart Windshield,” a digital display planted directly on a motorist’s windshield. Some have found the concept somewhat interesting and provocative, while others are certain that it will cause more accidents and confusion than it solves. The tech is pretty simple and does not constitute any type of technology to which we’re not all pretty much accustomed to. It’s all based in a smartphone app which can be paired to a petite projector which then displays the information from the app on a small screen located on the dash of the motor scooter. No wonder, mostRead More →
