The Jeep Wagoneer looms. So does its ultra-lux sibling, the Grand Wagoneer.

The Delfast Top 3.0 Electric Bike Is Pretty Much a Motorcycle

Speedy and With Good Range Electric bicycle manufacturer Delfast has a new bike called the Top 3.0, but it’s not really much of a bicycle. It’s really more of an electric motorcycle.

These 29 EVs all exceeded their advertised ranges — which is pretty awesome

One of the biggest concerns for new electric vehicle buyers is how far they can drive on one charge of the battery. Manufacturers quote estimated “real-world” ranges, but these aren’t always accurate. As it turns out, some manufacturers underestimate what their vehicles are capable of. According to a road test carried out by Norwegian motoring magazine, Motor.no, and the Norwegian Automobile Federation (NAF), 29 EVs from leading manufacturers all exceeded their WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light V...

Uber and Lyft risk closure in California if they don’t provide employee benefits to drivers
