Bricklin: The Canadian car that Canadians couldn't buy

In the 1970s, New Brunswick famously made the sporty-looking, plastic-bodied Bricklin, the brainchild of the man who introduced Subaru to America (and would later bring over the Yugo as well). But things didn't go well, and the province eventually lost $23 million on the deal. Find out more in my "Rearview Mirror" column at the National Post. [Author: Jil McIntosh]

2018 Highlights

Ok, so we're well into the New Year now (well, 3 days in) so it's time to take my yearly look back on the previous years riding. Mileage-wise I bet last year's pathetic count - but not by much and both bikes did somewhere over 8,000km each.  Not sure why, but I just haven't got in as much riding lately - must improve!

Confirmed: Chevrolet’s Bolt Loses Its Full Tax Credit In April, but Not the Doomed Volt

Good news for would-be Volt owners? Not really. Chevrolet’s soon-to-be-discontinued plug-in hybrid won’t live long enough to suffer the indignity of a halved federal EV tax credit. It’s dead in March, though remaining examples of the car everyone should want will no doubt linger on lots through the spring. On Wednesday, General Motors announced, as expected, […] The post Confirmed: Chevrolet’s Bolt Loses Its Full Tax Credit In April, but Not the Doomed Volt appeared first on The Truth About Cars...

How Can Byton Possibly Sell Its ‘Driver Tablet’ In America?

Chinese automaker Byton wowed the world when it introduced a concept vehicle playing host to more interior screen space than seemed wise.

At the time, we attributed the design as a fantastical […] The post How Can Byton Possibly Sell Its ‘Driver Tablet’ In America? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

U.S.-bound Car Carrier on Fire In Pacific; Said to Hold Nissans

The mundane process of shipping thousands of vehicles from overseas factories to domestic ports, ahead of distribution to dealers, still contains an element of risk.

Tesla cuts prices by $2,000 to offset reduced tax credit

Turning the CB250 RS into a vintage-style Honda trail bike

We love seeing ugly ducklings turned into graceful swans. After all, anyone can make a Ducati SportClassic look good—but a cheap 1980s commuter bike is a completely different ball game. This ice-cool little scrambler started life as a Honda CB250 RS, a plasticky but well-made runabout that was popular in the UK and Europe. You can still find them on the secondhand market, and they’re a bargain at about US$1,500. That makes the air-cooled single perfect for a low-cost, big-value custom job—...

BMW Plotting Production of New Hybrid Supercar

Tesla Greets New Year With Price Cuts, Lower-than-expected Q4 Deliveries

The calendar reads 2019, meaning new Tesla customers can’t hope to wrangle more than $3,750 in EV tax credits from the feds — a figure that’s half as much as the incentive enjoyed by buyers up until New Year’s Eve.

Tesla stock price crashes 10% on vehicle price cut, missed delivery estimates

Tesla is starting out 2019 in the red following news it missed Wall Street’s delivery estimates. The company said in a letter to investors that it delivered 90,700 vehicles during the fourth quarter. That’s a bit shy of what analysts expected. This, in part, caused the company’s stock to open nearly 8 percent down on the day. Tesla stock price is down 10 percent as of publication. The company also announced before the bell that it is cutting $2,000 off the price of a Model S, Model X and Mode...

A Fond Farewell to the Legendary Kawasaki KLR 650

The KLR650-A was unveiled in 1987, replacing the smaller KLR600 and becoming the monster of the Japanese dual sports. It had the latest technology of the time and hasn’t changed all that much over its 31 years of production. It is amazing to think that it’s production life spanned such a long time considering there hasn’t been anything else on the market that hasn’t evolved in its technology, looks, and parts. The KLR650 has gone through a few evolutions, albeit minor ones with the biggest being...

Junkyard Find: 1986 Toyota Tercel Wagon

Used-up examples of the 1983-1987 Toyota Tercel wagon (known as the Sprinter Carib in its homeland) still show up in junkyards today, but nearly all of them are the four-wheel-drive versions; the humble front-wheel-drive ones weren’t as desirable (once they became beaters, hoopties, and/or buckets) and mostly got crushed a decade ago. Here’s an ’86 […] The post Junkyard Find: 1986 Toyota Tercel Wagon appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
