All the tech crammed into the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

Mercedes-Benz lifted the final veil Thursday on its flagship EQS sedan after weeks of teasers, announcements and even a pre-production drive in which TechCrunch participated. The company peeled off the camouflage of the EQS — the electric counterpart to the Mercedes S Class — and revealed an ultra-luxury and tech-centric sedan. The exterior is getting much of the attention today; but it’s all of the tech that got ours, from the microsleep warning system and 56-inch hyperscreen to the monster HEP...

2022 Mazda MX-30 EV Arrives in California This Fall, Rotary PHEV to Follow

Mazda’s first electric vehicle will arrive in the United States later this year, though technically it’s just going to be California while the manufacturer considers the viability of selling to regions beyond the West Coast. The rollout makes sense as America’s 31st state has been hungrier for electric vehicles than other parts of the country.

2020 Cadillac CT5 Premium Luxury AWD Review – Close, Yet Far

The automotive press, ourselves included, has been hard on Cadillac in recent years. But the brand is making strides back to respectability. Unfortunately, the journey is long and incomplete.

Billionaire clown Elon Musk drags the late Chris Farley into Tesla’s feud with Ford

There’s never a dull moment in tech. Elon Musk and Ford CEO Jim Farley got into it on Twitter yesterday after a new Ford advertisement seemingly tossed shade at Tesla’s Autopilot. Heads up: The real lead here is that Ford’s new BlueCruise kit, a driverless car system, will launch on certain Mustang and F-150 models. Can we all take a moment to recognize how awesome the idea of an autonomous Mustang in the future is? But: Elon being Elon, there was no way the news was ever going to be about anyth...

The Survivor: Team Obsolete’s 150 mph Benelli 350 Four

As well as having the best name of any vintage racing outfit, Team Obsolete has an eye-watering collection of bikes. And they’re all ready to line up on the grid, including a 1964 Honda 250/6 that revs to 18,000 rpm and a flotilla of MV Agusta works racers. You could fill a book with stories and pictures of T.O. machines, and we love racing eye candy as much as anyone. This extremely quick Benelli 350/4 is one of our favorites: It’s the machine that Renzo Pasolini piloted to second place in t...

Tour in Luxury With MV Agusta’s New 2021 Turismo Veloce

Long Name, Longer Miles No OEM motorcycle lineup is complete without a motorcycle geared towards long-distance touring.

At first glance, the 2021 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce comes off as a beautiful motorcycle. When put next to something like the Kawasaki Versys, there’s no question that this is an Italian luxury motorcycle built for going the distance. T...

Tamika Butler, Remix’s Tiffany Chu and Revel’s Frank Reig to discuss how to balance equitability and profitability at TC Sessions Mobility

The race among mobility startups to become profitable by controlling market share has produced a string of bad results for cities and the people living in the them.

This correction has prompted established companies to change how they do business and fueled a new crop of startups, all promising...

NFT Inc. reimagines urban and rural living with flying car ASKA

A number of startups have promised to bring a drive-and-fly vehicle to market over the past few years, but none have yet managed to follow through. NFT Inc. is betting it will succeed where its rivals have failed, with preorders opening Thursday for ASKA, company’s first electric flying car. The SUV-sized ASKA ( which means ‘flying bird’ in Japanese) may be better described as a plane that drives, rather than a car that flies. Even when its six rotors are folded closed, the vehicle has the unmis...
