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.

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.

Prelude to a Preview: Cadillac Lyriq Continues Its Long March to Reality

“Lear-ick” or “lear-eek”? That’s the first question the Cadillac Lyriq brings to mind, the second being who, exactly, was behind the naming of this future electric crossover. Names matter, and if they don’t roll off the tongue easily, that’s a problem. At least for non-Italian brands… But this writer digresses. On Thursday, which proved quite […] The post Prelude to a Preview: Cadillac Lyriq Continues Its Long March to Reality appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

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.

Silver and Gold: Nevada Joins California in the Gas War

On Monday, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced that his state will embrace California-crafted emissions rules that are at odds with the national rollback finalized by the Trump administration in March.

Bullish on EVs, Hyundai Issues a Challenge

Hyundai and its sister automaker, Kia Motors, want to hear from you. Well, maybe not you, but someone with electrification expertise and a startup in tow.

Tesla Update: Brace Yourself for B-Day

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.

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.

Indianapolis Muses Solution to Failed EV Program, Asks for Help

Indianapolis’ electric car-sharing program, BlueIndy, died in May.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t preclude host cities from having to deal with the aftermath — and Indiana’s capitol now needs […] The post Indianapolis Muses Solution to Failed EV Program, Asks for Help appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Toyota Prices Its RAV4 Prime, the Crossover With a Plug

By bestowing a name once associated with the Prius on its top-selling RAV4 crossover — while adding beefed-up electric motors, battery pack, and charging port for good measure — Toyota catapulted the compact CUV’s power and price.

Gas War: Senator Asks EPA Watchdog to Investigate New Fuel Efficiency Rules

Every time we think the United States’ fueling fracas had concluded, something new emerges to remind us that we’re utter morons.

How Lyft intends to navigate and survive COVID-19

A glimpse at Lyft’s stock price Wednesday, which soared as much as 16.77% after were reported, suggested all was well in the ride-hailing company’s world. In this COVID 19-era, “well” is a relative term. Lyft’s net losses did dramatically improve from the year-ago quarter (a loss of $398 million versus $1.1 billion in Q1 2019). However, Lyft was clear in its earnings call: COVID-19 had a profound impact on its customers and its business and the future was uncertain. “It is impossible to acc...
