    On Tuesday, Rivian announced it would be increasing vehicle pricing by roughly 20 percent to account for higher inflationary pressures and higher component costs.

  • Toyota Announces EV Strategy, Readies $70 Billion for the Cause December 14, 2021
    On Tuesday, Toyota Motor Corp. announced a commitment of 8 trillion yen ($70 billion USD) toward the goal of achieving carbon neutrality someday.

    Elon Musk has continued bashing the Biden administration’s tax credit legislation designed to spur electric vehicle adoption, this time suggesting that the entire bill be scrapped. Included as part of the Build Back Better Act that’s focused on addressing various social, infrastructure, and climate issues, Musk suggested the entire text simply be done away. “Honestly, I […]
  • Stellantis CEO Thinks EVs Are Too Troublesome December 1, 2021
    Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares has said that the growing pressures being placed on automakers to shift toward electric-vehicle production are unsustainable and run the risk of the public getting subpar products at decidedly higher price tags. While we’ve seen automotive executives lambast new energy vehicles before, it’s grown rarer as governments around the world have […]
  • Dual Realities: VW CEO Claims Slow EV Shift Could Cost 30,000 Jobs October 13, 2021
    Like the rest of the world, the automotive industry is currently living in two distinct realities.

But battery firms, establishment politicians, and most automakers have claimed that transitioning […]
  • Lucid Motors Becomes an Automaker September 29, 2021

  • Junkyard Find: 2017 Toyota Mirai Fuel Cell September 27, 2021
    I have become accustomed to running into the unexpected during my junkyard travels, finding everything from a JDM Nissan Fairlady Z to a bullet-riddled Cadillac from a Mythbusters episode to a British tank. That said, I never expected to find a four-year-old hydrogen fuel-cell car, more than a thousand miles from the only state in […]
  • Ford Mustang Mach-E Police Cars: Yay or Nay? September 22, 2021
    Whenever I close my eyes to fantasize about police vehicles, it’s a foregone conclusion that I’m thinking about a Ford Crown Victoria. The model had a two-decade lifespan occupying departmental motor pools as the de facto police cruiser. But it’s been out of action since 2012, leaving a gigantic hole in governmental order forms that […]
  • New York to Ban Sale of Gasoline Vehicles After 2035 September 9, 2021
    New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law a bill that effectively makes the sale of new gasoline-powered automobiles illegal within the state after 2035.

  • GM Upset With Battery Supplier, Expands Bolt Recall Again August 23, 2021
    On Friday, General Motors announced that its recall of the Chevrolet Bolt would result in a loss of $1 billion.

  • Opinion: EV Owners Don’t Need a Home Charger August 2, 2021
    Filling up your car’s fuel tank is a normal and familiar chore for almost every car owner, right? You’re all familiar with the idea of driving a few hundred miles – whether that’s all at once on a road trip or in starts and stops around town – then pulling up to your local fuel […]
  • Emerald-Colored Glasses: Just How Green Are EVs? June 22, 2021
    As the resident sourpuss, I make it my business to complain about every industrial hypocrisy that crosses my path and the automotive sector has kept me so busy that there’s hardly any time left to address my own failings.
