Just to be clear, I thought for the longest time electric aircraft would simply never happen, at least on a large scale. Batteries are simply too heavy and not energy-dense enough, and nothing is more critical on an aircraft than weight. The famous adage of Colin Chapman - “add lightness” - is daily edict for the…
The Kia is claiming their new Niro HUV will get 50 mpg combined. And has a drag coefficient of 0.29. And makes 146 HP and 195 pounds of twist. That is incredible. Why is no one mentioning any of this?
I took this pic over the summer when I visited Zuffenhausen. As you could tell, the quick subway ride from central Stuttgart was well worth it.
What better way to spend Labor Day Weekend than to Summit the Northeastern US’s highest peak in a BMW i8...
Damn, that’s sexy
Disclaimer: A friend of mines mom bought a new car, and he wanted me to drive it so bad that he drove 10 miles so I could give it a go.
Or, at least he told me how your kid can take a shot at succeeding him.
We just installed a titanium turbo back exhaust on our Project i8 and it is now one loud Hybrid!
My wife’s B5 Passat put the final nail in its coffin when it decided to free all the coolant from the heater core so we decided that it might be time to pick up something newer. I found a dead Civic Hybrid at a nearby auction and decided to buy it and attempt to repair it.
Look at that. 3 different solutions for one challenge. From left to right:
Someone must have posted this, but this is incredible.
Yes, it's a hybrid!
The brand new, 2015 Porsche 919 has broken cover! This is the first of FOUR different contenders for the 2015 FIA WEC, the others being the Audi R18, Toyota TS040, and Nissan GTR LM NISMO. Its nice to see how the car has evolved; I always think prototypes look good in black.
Super-Short review. Our rental here in Seattle for 3 days was this Ford C-MAX SEL Hybrid. I'll tell you this is a great "little" car. Not sure what you call these things..CUV? SUV? Hatchback? SuperHybrid?.. Anywho, with my short time behind the wheel I've learned it's very enjoyable to drive. The brakes are very…
The 2016 Chevrolet Volt is here and boy oh boy is it exciting. It's exciting right? That's the word automakers are using to describe their new vehicles right? Jetta, exciting. CX-3, exciting. Camry, excit...
An aircraft with a parallel hybrid engine – the first ever to be able to recharge its batteries in flight – has been successfully tested in the UK, an important early step towards cleaner, more efficient air travel.
As the world continues to become more dependent on alternative energy sources for day to day activities, one trend that has become a staple in society is the use of hybrid and electric vehicles for personal transportation. These vehicles are said to be much better for the environment, for the simple reason that over…
As long as the automobile has existed, there has been lawsuits. Patent litigation in the auto industry has been an issue since the first combustion engine was created. One of the biggest feuds dates back to the era of the model T. In the history of automotive patents, patent attorney George Selden is often referred to…
