Job postings hint at winners of NYC and London e-scooter pilots

A batch of job listings along with some suggests that scooter companies such as Lime and Superpedestrian are gearing up to operate in London and New York City — two of the last remaining frontiers of shared scooter services. A review of job listings, company websites and LinkedIn shows that Lime and Dott are preparing to launch in London, while Lime, Superpedestrian and maybe even Spin are getting ready for New York. While the job posts don’t provide definitive proof that these companies have ...

In Memoriam: The Rolls-Royce-Bentley Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8

Today we bid a belated farewell to a legend of an engine, the Six and Three-Quarter Litre V8.

Check Out Benelli’s New 302R Entry-Level Sportbike

A Much Needed Update Chinese manufacturer Benelli has been hard at work since being reborn in the early 2000’s after a long absence from the motorcycle world. Although the design work is mainly done in Italy, the bikes have been exclusively manufactured in China. Qianjiang Group (the owner of Benelli), began the brand’s invasion into American markets last year, and now they have a replacement for the older 302R that will hopefully make its way to American shores shortly. The updated 302R brings...

Chinese Auto Sales Reportedly Rebounding Robustly

The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) is reporting its home market grew 74.9 percent in March, resulting in nearly 2.53 million new-vehicle deliveries. While we’re often skeptical of the organization’s rosy predictions and tallies, it’s claiming the recent sales surge is the direct result of how bad things had been in the previous year.

Sustainability Proves an Effective Way of Reaching Rideshare Passengers With Travel Ads

People riding in the back of an Uber or Lyft are a captive audience to ads being flashed across the tablet screens that hang over the backs of the seats. But captive doesn't equal engagement. And while it seems obvious that travel would appeal to rideshare hails, studies have shown that this is not the...

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer AWD LT Review – Pleasant Surprise

The reemergence of the Trailblazer name in the Chevrolet lineup seemed like a cynical nostalgia ploy at first. Trailblazer a cute ‘ute? That’s almost as bad as using Blazer nameplate on a five-seat crossover with little, if anything, in the way of off-road chops. It’s not just the name. These smaller crossovers have often felt […] The post 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer AWD LT Review – Pleasant Surprise appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Triple Threat: Kiyo’s three-engined land speed racer

Land speed racing has a way of inspiring outrageous engineering. The most common motivation is a relentless pursuit of outright speed. Other times, it’s driven by a desire to build something that’s truly out of this world. Shoving three bored-out Honda CB750 motors into one land speed racer is probably a little bit of both. This, in all of its 12-cylinder, 2,508cc glory, is The Galaxy. It’s the creation of California-based custom motorcycle builder and mad genius, Mitsuhiro “Kiyo” Kiyonaga, ...

Ford Skipping Summer Shutdowns

Ford will be ignoring the typical two-week summer shutdown this year as a way to make up for production downtime caused by the semiconductor shortage. That’s undoubtedly going to complicate some vacation plans. But Blue Oval has already given loads of workers time off and has more downtime planned through April and now that the […] The post Ford Skipping Summer Shutdowns appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV lowers the cost of entry for some of GM’s most advanced tech

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV may look like a larger, slightly longer Chevrolet Bolt, but under that boxy exterior lies a whole lot of tech that’s both affordable and very advanced. With the launch of the Chevy Bolt EUV, and its available suite of advanced driver assistance systems, GM is putting both advanced driver assistance technology and electric drivetrains within reach of the masses. As part of GMs much-touted goal to introduce 30 new electric vehicles in the next four years, the company recent...
