Ford cancels Lincoln electric vehicle program with Rivian

Lincoln Motor, the luxury brand under Ford, has canceled plans to build an all new electric vehicle based on Rivian’s skateboard platform. Crain’s Detroit reported that dealers were informed Tuesday. Rivian and Ford said in a statement sent to TechCrunch that this was a mutual decision based on the current environment, which was meant to imply that the COVID-19 pandemic was the primary cause.

Sport No More: Hyundai Elantra N Line Enters the Picture

Typically, using the word “sport” to describe a sportier, more powerful version of a bread and butter model goes over well with consumers. It’s straightforward, leaving little room for confusion.

The trim level […] The post Sport No More: Hyundai Elantra N Line Enters the Picture appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

In Too Deep: A KTM Supermoto flat tracker by Hombrese

Customizing your own bike is a one-way ticket down a very deep rabbit hole. Make just one change, and soon you’ll have a head full of ideas and a project that’s snowballing fast. That’s what happened with this KTM 950 Supermoto—where a simple wheel and suspension swap turned into a full-blown hooligan flat tracker conversion. Uwe Kostrewa at Hombrese Bikes pushed the project over the finish line, but the initial work was actually done the KTM’s owner, Patrick. The two Germans are good friends...

Sometimes It’s Just Nice to Hear a Car Designer Talk About Driving

Ever been to a party where the most interesting person wasn’t the life of the room, but the quiet person in the corner, calmly — perhaps a little shyly — sipping their drink and taking in all the things occurring before them? Vehicle designers seem like that person. The braggadocious CEOs and upper-level execs can […] The post Sometimes It’s Just Nice to Hear a Car Designer Talk About Driving appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Bad Timing: Nissan Warns of Full-year Loss After Pandemic Slams Finances

Nissan can’t catch a break. Instead of the new decade heralding sunnier skies and calmer seas for a financially compromised Nissan, the first quarter of the year (and counting) brought nothing but grief. Declining sales and shuttered plants spurred by the coronavirus pandemic further destabilized the automaker’s balance sheet. It was the kind of out-of-the-blue […] The post Bad Timing: Nissan Warns of Full-year Loss After Pandemic Slams Finances appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

My Prediction for 2020’s Motorcycle of the Year

What Is the Best New Bike? Looking over the long list of new or updated motorcycles for 2020, I have to say that there are some truly killer machines out there this year. There are far more new or updated models than I originally thought, and there are standouts in each segment of the motorcycle market.  With that said, there will inevitably be ones that rise to the top and likely one that stands out far more than any other motorcycles made new this year. I wanted to take a moment to really ...

Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Fireball Coming?

Adding a Fireball? The rumor is that Royal Enfield has a Meteor 350 in the works, but new information suggests the company will add the suffix Fireball to the bike’s name. GaadiWaadi recently posted an article with some leaked images that showed the suffix added to the bike. It’s unclear exactly what this means. Maybe Royal Enfield just didn’t feel that the Meteor 350 name was good enough. Maybe the company has an especially hot version of the bike that it wanted to set apart with the Fireball ...
