Tesla Delivered More Than 90,000 Cars Last Quarter

(CNN) — Tesla sales and production were hurt by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns. But not as much as some other automakers. The electric car company reported Thursday it delivered 90,650 cars to customers during the quarter. That’s down 5% from a year ago, but far less than the drops of 30% or more reported by other automakers on Wednesday. Tesla’s second-quarter sales were up a bit from the 88,400 cars it delivered in the first quarter. Production was down, though, falling 20% from the first...

A ridiculously beautiful BMW R100

The 'Good Ghost' is an amazing BMW R100 project currently being featured on BikeEXIF. DIRK OEHLERKING HAS a portfolio of incredible builds, but there are two machines that stand out. They are the White Phantom and Black Phantom—two classic BMW boxers, with exquisite hand-formed bodywork and an unusual art deco vibe. Dirk refers to his Phantoms as "two that belong together, like Yin and Yang." But those two have now become three, as another Phantom rolls out of the Kingston Custom wor...

Uber and Lyft would rather shutdown than pay employee benefits

New age taxi firms Uber and Lyft have entered into a fight to the death with Californian regulators over how they classify their drivers. Just a few days ago, the state ruled that the companies must recognize its drivers as employees and pay them benefits. But Uber and Lyft will do anything to avoid that, including shutting down business in the Golden State altogether. Following Monday’s ruling, Uber and Lyft showed no signs of yielding and vowed to fight the order that was put on hold for 10 da...

Russia’s first mass-produced EV will cost less than $7,000 but you can’t buy it

As a country, Russia isn’t exactly associated with renewable energy. Around 16% of its GDP comes from oil, natural gas, and precious metals, so it’s not surprising that electric vehicles aren’t that high on its agenda. Also, when it comes to motorcars in the freezing and remote parts of the country, they favor reliability, repairability, and familiarity. Take the Lada Niva for example. It’s a super compact utilitarian vehicle, mostly used by hardy types on unforgiving terrain that don’t apprecia...

Independence Mountain - Day 7

Saturday, Aug 08Another sunny skies morning with temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s.Decided to ride with Yagi, my TW200 Dualsport, the BLM trails located about midway up Independence Mountain and accessible from BLM 2504 near the Tipi Rings site: BLM 2514 below: I started off with the lower portion of the route which progressively led down the mountain: As I got near the bottom, it became pretty steep and I paused to gauge things before continuing.  As I looked, I saw dirt flying up fr...

ADAS tech remains a blind spot for independent car sellers — and it’s putting lives at risk

Within the broad discussions taking place about self-driving cars, there’s a growing conversation that explores how drivers are informed and educated about the technologies that make partial or full autonomy possible. Before we dive into that conversation, let’s get one thing straight, the most advanced systems we have at the moment are classed as Level 2 (of five) on the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) scale of automation. Level 2 automation is also known as an ADAS (advanced driver assis...

GM Targets FCA Owners As Labor Day Nears

General Motors has conquest on the mind.

Uber and Lyft lose bid to delay worker reclassification order in California

Uber and Lyft have lost their bid to delay a preliminary injunction that will force the two ride-hailing app companies to reclassify its drivers as employees. A California superior court judge denied Thursday the companies request to delay the order from going into effect August 20. The decision sets the stage for a legal fight and will most certainly require both companies to suspend operations temporarily in California if they fail to get the stay extended. Uber confirmed with TechCrunch it...

Lyft shares get small bump after reporting 61% Q2 revenue decline

Today after the bell, Lyft reported its second-quarter financial performance. The American ride-hailing company’s results helped illustrate just how much the economy has changed in the wake of COVID-19 and its resulting disruptions to life, travel and work. Uber’s , which were shared last week, provided hints of what was coming for Lyft. The upshot: a sharply reduced ride-hailing business. In the second quarter, Lyft reported revenue of $339.3 million and earnings per share of negative $1...

Hyundai: Why Have an Elantra GT When You Can Have a CUV?

This one’s a bit of a bummer, though it’s not surprising. The 2021 model year will bring a Hyundai model lineup bursting at the seams with crossovers, but there’s apparently no room for a lowly compact hatchback.
