Nikola’s Valuation Seems Crazy

Nikola, the Phoenix-based EV startup that hopped on the Nasdaq last week, finds itself awash in capital despite not having much to show for itself it terms of sellable product. No matter, as it doesn’t take a sound business model or originality to thrive on Wall Street. Nikola hasn’t even seen fit to come up with […] The post Nikola’s Valuation Seems Crazy appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Have Engines, Will Sell?

As we reported some months ago, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek corrects a flaw that’s hitched a ride with the otherwise useful and appealing little vehicle since its inception: a lack of power. Even with a very mild power bump for 2018, the lifted-and-cladded Impreza five-door’s 2.0-liter Boxer four-cylinder still struggled under the burden of heavy […] The post 2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Have Engines, Will Sell? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

General Motors: Electrification Will Take ‘Years and Decades’

Since the dawn of the new century, the automotive industry has been forced to revise electrification timelines for a cavalcade of reasons. Development programs have proven costly, the economy has taken a turn (or turns) for the worse, customers haven’t responded in great numbers, and the materials necessary for battery have been in short supply […] The post General Motors: Electrification Will Take ‘Years and Decades’ appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

French Bob: A dose of vintage flair for the Triumph Bobber

The success of the Triumph Bobber has not gone unnoticed by the more savvy custom shops. It’s the fastest-selling motorcycle in the history of the British brand, but unfortunately it’s tricky to customize—because Triumph largely ‘got it right’ at the design stage. The French outfit BAAK has just finished this 2020-spec Bonneville Bobber 1200, and it looks superb. But there’s a bigger story than just the bike. Rémi Reguin, boss of the Lyon-based workshop, will open new premises in the USA next...

Nissan e-4ORCE All-Wheel: How It Works & When We Might See It

We’re all familiar with the Nissan Leaf. We know it as a high-tech and practical EV, even if its a bit awkwardly-designed. While looks are subjective, it’s still not exactly the most rewarding to drive from an enthusiast’s perspective. But with the Nissan e-4ORCE system, future Nissan EVs are destined for a brighter future in terms of safety, cornering performance, and driving comfort. Or that is what Nissan is banking on at least . . . What Is Nissan e-4ORCE? Nissan e-4ORCE is an all...

2020 Bentley Flying Spur Review: Superior comfort and performance

What can I say? It’s a Bentley. It’s lovely. The Bentley new Flying Spur is a luxury super sedan. It packs a larger engine than most sports cars, has four heavenly seats, and glides over the road like soap on a shower floor. This example costs $279,000, so I would expect nothing less. This sedan is supremely comfortable, and yet it packs a powerful punch. Bentley says the W12 engine lets it hit 207 mph though I had no reason to verify that claim. Going fast means arriving at a destination sooner...

The upcoming all-electric BMW iX3 is a sign the industry is truly changing

German automaker BMW has just announced that it’s ready to put its all-electric X3 into production, marking a significant move in the transition to battery powered vehicles. While the company already has its BMWi range of electric vehicles, the BMW iX3 will be the first vehicle from its core lineup to go all-electric and move away from combustion engines as the mainstream choice. In an announcement published earlier today, BMW said that it will produce the iX3 in China ready for its first delive...

The rise of low-margin, no-margin unicorns

Yesterday evening, Vroom, a digital used car retailer, priced its IPO at $22 per share, a figure that was a full $7 above the low end of its first proposed IPO price range. The venture-backed firm first proposed a $15 to $17 per-share IPO price range, which it later raised to $18 to $20 per share. Pricing at $22 per share meant that there was strong demand for the company’s equity during its IPO process. Pricing strength doesn’t guarantee performance as a public company, but it does provide a pr...

HJC’s New V90 Retro Modular Helmet With a Bubble Visor Looks Cool

A Cool New Modular Option When I think HJC, I don’t usually think of a retro style. The company makes some of the best helmets out there, but they’re not usually chasing after that look of yesteryear. However, this new V90 modular helmet does that a little bit. It’s not on the same level as far as retro styling goes as Biltwell or Bell’s lids, but it’s a good looking blend of modern and retro aesthetics. The helmet features a mostly round shell with a large air vent on the forehead and a second...

Is a New FZ750 Coming?

Bringing Back the 1980s Motorcycle A new rumor is circulating that Yamaha is working on a new FZ750 motorcycle that could be based on the current MT-09. The rumor comes out of the Japanese publication Young Machine. While it’s just a rumor right now, it would make sense. Suzuki’s Katana has been well received, so why shouldn’t Yamaha bring back an older bike, too?  According to Drive Mag Riders, much of the motorcycle would be pulled straight from the MT-09. This could include the engine, frame...

Harley-Davidson Is Working on a Self-Balancing System

A Motorcycle Stands Alone Harley-Davidson may have a solution to the issue of motorcycle weight. According to some patents that were recently spotted by Cycle World, the company is working on a self-balancing system for its motorcycles. This makes sense. While Harley generally does a fantastic job of keeping the weight low and manageable, there’s no denying the bikes can get quite heavy. Weight isn’t much of an issue once you get moving, but at lower speeds, you can really feel it. That’s where...
