Lighting Motorcycles Teases Image of the Strike

The First Photo Looks Good Lightning Motorcycle’s new Strike bike is set to be fully revealed in March. Until then, the company has to keep the attention of the media and interested prospective customers. Hence the latest teaser image. In the first photo of the Lightning Motorcycles’ Strike, you can see the bike’s electric motor.  The company doesn’t offer up too much new information other than stating that the Strike will get a liquid-cooled motor. That’s interesting but not a big shocker. Ele...

Freedom EV: free/open replacement firmware for your electric vehicle -- including a Tesla

Freedom EV is a free/open software stack intended to replace the software in your electric vehicle, it's been tested on a Tesla Model X and should work on a Model S, if you can get root. Electric vehicles are very exciting but the same informatics and versatility that make them exciting also invite manufacturers to add all kinds of antifeatures (like batteries with plenty of charge remaining that refuse to power a vehicle because you've only paid for so much electricity; to say nothing of t...

Are These Onyx Electric Mopeds the Perfect Urban Commuter Bikes?

Pedals and Electric Power Mopeds were popular machines in the 1970s and 80s, but over time the bicycle/motorcycle bike fell out of style. Now, they’re quite uncommon. You see either scooters or motorcycles, but the pedal moped is a rarity on the road. That may change in the future thanks to ONYX Motorbikes. ONYX Motorbikes got its start where many good ideas go, Indigogo. After raising about $1 million, Tim Seward, the founder of the company, and his team have delivered on some truly attractive...

Volkswagen Considering a Rough-and-tumble Electric

The sky’s apparently the limit when it comes to the variety of vehicles that might emerge from Volkswagen’s dedicated MEB electric architecture. While the automaker’s looming EV onslaught already contains a hatchback, crossover, microbus, panel van, and possible luxury sedan, VW feels something’s missing: a tough, off-road ute. One VW exec is pushing hard to […] The post Volkswagen Considering a Rough-and-tumble Electric appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

There will be no Ace of Base prizes for the Tesla Model X or Model S in 2019.

The Elextra is Switzerland’s answer to Tesla

4 seats. 4 doors. 4 wheel drive. That’s the first sentence that greets you when you visit Elextra’s website. The car models itself on a sporty yet spacious supercar that’s capable of seating 4 people… an unusual categorization, but remarkable nevertheless. Touted as Switzerland’s contribution to the electric automobile industry, and a rival to Tesla, the Elextra is a fully-electric sedan that combines a carbon fiber body with brutish Italian styling and a powertrain capable of going from 0-62 mp...

Ford Trademarks ‘Mach E’ – You Know It’ll Be a Crossover

Earlier this year, the Blue Oval raised the ire of die-hard fans when it was rumoured the company would use the Mach 1 name on an upcoming electrified vehicle.

Having just unveiled a rather impressive all-electric pickup for the LA Auto Show, Michigan-based automotive startup Rivian is following up with another model. Rivian’s second vehicle will be a seven-passenger SUV, called the R1S, that uses the same platform as the R1T e-pickup.

Elon Musk says Tesla won’t make e-scooters, but might consider electric bikes

Tesla won’t be joining the scooter wars. But electric bikes? Yeah, maybe. During a lengthy podcast with Recode’s Kara Swisher, Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about everything from AI and his fights on Twitter with journalists to Saudi Arabia and Mars. Even scooters. Of course, scooters. But don’t get your hopes up for a Tesla scooter. According to Musk, they lack dignity. Swisher’s persistence on the topic wasn’t enough to Here’s the exchange.

ELECTRIC LOVE – Tarform Motorcycles

We obviously have a fondness for combustion engines. We love the smell, the noise and even the odd pipe burn. But we don’t have to look into a crystal ball to see that electric motorcycles will play a big role in the future of the motorcycle industry. A few years ago, Tarform Motorcycles saw the huge potential for e-motorbikes and decided to build ‘the motorcycle of the future’. Tarform are an automotive start-up company based both in Brooklyn, New York and Stockholm, Sweden. After building a ...

Smart’s Forease is an over-the-top, topless EV concept

In celebration of its 20th year anniversary, Smart (a subsidiary of Daimler AG) unveiled its Forease EV Concept at the Paris Motor Show. Designed to look pretty much like the dune buggy got an electric drivetrain and a makeover, the Forease looks refreshing and adorable, but shares something in common with the iPhone 7. Much like the latter killed the popular and borderline-necessary headphone jack, the Forease kills something popular and borderline-necessary too. The roof.The Forease concept co...

Peugeot’s E-Legend concept is peak Retrofuturism

Looking at the E-Legend right beside its visual ancestor, the 504, you’d say that there’s no doubt that both of them belong to the same family. They both manifest the ‘pony car’ aesthetic too well, and there are undeniable similarities in the silhouette, the color, and in the nature of the headlights an taillights… but the E-Legend undeniably manages to look like the 504 stayed the same, yet got a distinctly modern touch.The E-Legend concept from French automotive company Peugeot is an exercis...

2019 Honda CRF450L Test Ride Review

I Love It! I admit freely to generally liking all Honda motorcycles. Not that I won’t criticize shortcomings on them, but overall I just like the cut of their jib. They build bikes that make the rider feel more confident in their ability. They focus on imbuing their bikes with user friendly torque curves and power bands tailor-made for specific applications. Honda bikes have a unique design and sound aspect too. I can almost always tell I’m riding one instinctively. I swear they even smell diff...

Facing a potential rollback of fuel standards, we look at fuel economy and emissions through the years

Fuel economy in the U.S. has improved since the gas crisis in the 1970s. Earlier this month the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation issued a proposed ruling to roll back some goals for greater fuel economy set in 2012. What would that mean for California and the nation?

The Microlino makes ‘adorable’ an automotive trait

As far as automobiles go, cute isn’t a term you see thrown around too often. The VW Beetle, for instance was one of the first cars to be perceived as cute (I’m more of a Mini Cooper man myself), but post its success, not many cars have harnessed that aesthetic… or harnessed it well (Google’s self-driving car looks cute, but feels more like a toy robot than a car).Inspired by the BMW Isetta from the 50s (another adorable car), the Microlino does a rather wonderful job of looking cute, but at th...
