American States Join Forces to Promote Electric Trucking

A bundle of U.S. states and the District of Columbia unveiled a joint memorandum of understanding on Tuesday targeting the proliferation of medium and heavy-duty electric vehicles. News of the agreement comes less than a month after the California Air Resources Board (CARB) showed off a policy that would legally obligate manufacturers to sell an increasing […] The post American States Join Forces to Promote Electric Trucking appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

BMW Debuts iX3: iNext, Please

BMW revealed the production version of the iX3 crossover this week, adhering as closely to the 2018 concept as possible. More aerodynamic than your standard X3 and adorned with visual cues hinting at its status as a zero-emissions vehicle, Bavaria’s newest electric seems adequate transportation for those with modest expectations. But this is supposed to […] The post BMW Debuts iX3: iNext, Please appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Music to Certain Ears: Cadillac Explains the Lyriq

The decision to saddle the first all-electric Cadillac model with a name like “Lyriq” was made all the more eyebrow-raising when the second-in-line EV Caddy’s name cropped up: Celestiq. Stop it already! What’s going on here, many asked. While eager for a break from the de Nysschen days of alphanumeric gobbledygook, some were not ready […] The post Music to Certain Ears: Cadillac Explains the Lyriq appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Fisker, Eager to Attract All Sorts of Green, Goes Public

As predicted last week, Fisker Inc., the company created by Henrik Fisker that aims to introduce an ultra-eco electric crossover, the Ocean, in 2022, has announced plans to go public. Again, as expected, Fisker made its move by merging with a blank check company backed by a private equity firm.

IPO? Who Needs That? Rivian Lands Another $2.5 Billion

As you read earlier this morning, Rivian founder and CEO R.J. Scaringe isn’t all that impressed with the ability of some EV startups to wow Wall Street with lofty talk and exciting, but perhaps empty, promises. He’s more concerned with getting product out the door. It’s perhaps because of Rivian’s conventional approach to car building […] The post IPO? Who Needs That?

At Rivian, Product Tops Promises

Among electric vehicle startups, Rivian is the nonconformist. Compared to its braggadocious contemporaries, many of which are still years away from building anything, the Michigan-based company is well-poised to deliver a drivable product within a year’s time, with only scant attention paid to the possibilities of going public on a raft of promises. We’ve already […] The post At Rivian, Product Tops Promises appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Badger Begins: Nikola Now Taking Reservations

Early adopters willing to toss cash at an exciting idea have been the lifeblood of modern-day electric vehicles. Without investors believing in Tesla and cramming its sweet cheeks full of cash, it never would have gotten to a point where it could actually manufacture cars.

Nissan Ariya Debut Coming In July; CEO (Again) Promises to Right the Ship

I’m your man, Nissan CEO Makoto Uchida told shareholders at an annual meeting Monday, promising to take a pay cut while firming up the fiscal foundations of an automaker that was floundering even before the pandemic hit. Nissan rolled out a very different kind of four-year plan in late May. Cost-cutting and consolidation is the […] The post Nissan Ariya Debut Coming In July; CEO (Again) Promises to Right the Ship appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

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. As all-electric 18-wheelers are in short supply, California wants to wait a few years to put the new rules into play. […] The post Hauling In California?

BMW Faces a Choice: Go Big on EVs, or Risk Falling Behind

BMW’s approach to the next frontier of driving propulsion has been an incremental one. First, electrification in a couple of oddball niche cars; then, plug-in hybrid versions of more conventional models. The fully electric vehicles coming down the pipe share their versatile architecture with existing models containing more conventional powerplants. It’s cautious, and it’s certainly […] The post BMW Faces a Choice: Go Big on EVs, or Risk Falling Behind appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Endurance, by Lordstown: The Electric Pickup That’s Not for Everyone

Rivian wants to dazzle you with excessive range and dirt-flinging tank turns. Ford wants you to feel virtuous while behind the wheel of an F-150. General Motors wants to crush things beneath the wheels of the monstrous GMC Hummer EV. Lordstown Motors’s electric pickup, on the other hand, doesn’t want to be everyone’s best friend.

Report: Tesla Eager to Get Started on Roadrunner

No, Tesla isn’t resurrecting an intermediate-sized Mopar muscle car. It’s something far less sexy than that. According to documents, Tesla aims to build a battery research and manufacturing facility, staffed 24/7, in the dreaded state of California. According to municipal documents seen by Reuters, the electric automaker wants to expand a fledgling battery-building operation in […] The post Report: Tesla Eager to Get Started on Roadrunner appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

There’s a big to-do coming up in Tesla’s social calendar. Dubbed “Battery Day,” the occasion seems to have something to do with…well, you can probably read.

Lyft Promises to Swap Exclusively to EVs by Bullying Everyone

On Wednesday, ride-hailing company Lyft announced every vehicle using its platform will be electric by 2030. Since its fleet is comprised primarily of contractors using private vehicles, one might assume the company is planning to offer some financial assistance upon their next purchase. But being sensible rarely means being correct in the postmodern era. Rather […] The post Lyft Promises to Swap Exclusively to EVs by Bullying Everyone appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Paging Raymond Loewy: Volkswagen ID.4 Leaked

Hey, look — it’s Volkswagen’s upcoming electric crossover! Leaked on the vwidtalk.com forum and spied by Jalopnik on Wednesday, the MEB-platform EV, which will one day roll out of Chattanooga Assembly, apparently used a Coke bottle for a muse.

Editorial Rant: GM CEO Says Automaker Will Still Lead Electrification, Autonomy

Those of you living in North America can kiss any chance of buying a Volkswagen ID.3 goodbye, as the automaker’s first-of-many, MEB-platform electric will not make it across the pond. Larger, more U.S.-friendly models will follow. For Brits, however, orders open next month, with deliveries beginning in September.

Since the dawn of the new century, the automotive industry has been forced to revise electrification timelines for a cavalcade of reasons.
