California requires all vans and trucks to drop diesel by 2045

Lawmakers in California have passed a new rule which requires all commercial trucks and vans to be zero-emission by 2045.

The rule is just the latest in a series of conditions that will need to be met before 2045. [Read: Will the Lordstown Endurance electric truck beat the Tesla Cybertruck and Rivian R1T to mark...

42 Million Spot Welds Later, Bentley Mulsanne Production Fades Away

As times change – even for the better – we find ourselves saying goodbye to old friends and favorites. This is exactly what happened in Crewe, England on a bittersweet June day. After a decade of loving production, the Bentley Mulsanne is truly as good as it ever was. It still represents the highest degree of Bentley’s pedigree. Yet the Flying Spur is eager for its chance to become the flagship as Bentley looks to carve out a new history from this day forth.   “The Mulsanne is the culmination...

Hauling In California? That Rig Had Better Be Green

The California Air Resource Board (CARB) just passed a mandate that will require manufacturers of big rigs, heavy duty pickups, and some construction equipment to adhere to new zero-emission quotas and a carbon-credit system.

Triumph releases e-bicycle but no word on e-motorcycle debut

UK motorcycle manufacturer Triumph released an e-bicycle today, the Trekker GT — with 90 miles of riding range, a 250 watt motor and a 504 watt hour battery. With a five hour charge time, the bike weighs 52 pounds (24 kilograms) and can produce up to 60 Nm (or 29 ft-lbs) of torque.

Race prep: Secrets of the Fasthouse Ducati Desert Sleds

Today’s ‘modern classic’ scramblers are more show than go. Stylistically, they hark back to the golden years of Californian desert racing—but you wouldn’t want to actually race one across the desert. There are only a couple of motorcycles that buck this trend, and the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is one of them. Even though it’s not a full-blown enduro machine, it’s surprisingly good off-road. So much so, that most reviewers refer to it as “the Scrambler Ducati should have built in the first ...

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

Regulators in California, US, have just ruled that drivers for ride-hailing companies like Uber and Lyft are employees and deserve proper benefits and compensation. At present, the companies classify drivers as contractors meaning they have no legal responsibility to provide health care and other benefits to drivers. In a document published earlier this week, the Public Utilities Commission, the regulators that oversee the likes of Uber and other ride-hail services, said that its drivers are emp...

Junkyard Find: 1977 Mercury Bobcat 3-Door

You’d think that examples of the Ford Pinto and its Mercury-badged twin, the Bobcat, would have disappeared from the American junkyard ecosystem by now, given the cheapness of these cars and the decades of exploding-Pinto punchlines since “Pinto Madness” came out in 1977. No doubt due to the huge quantities sold during the Pinto/Bobcat’s 10-year […] The post Junkyard Find: 1977 Mercury Bobcat 3-Door appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Acura TLX: Renaissance of Japanese Sport Sedans? We Think So!

The 2021 Acura TLX is everything we’re hoping for and more. The second-generation TLX bears no resemblance to the outgoing model, and that’s a good thing. For starters, the old TLX was underpowered and bland to drive, making it a hard sell compared to the feisty Germans. But when Acura previewed the unforgettable Type S Concept at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering in California last year, we knew the incoming TLX would signal the renaissance of Japanese sports sedans. And based on what we’re...
