2022 VW Tiguan: Refreshed Styling & New Tech Updates for VW’s Top-Selling Crossover

The 2022 VW Tiguan arrives with a new face, updated styling features, and a host of advanced tech gizmos, just what we expect from a modern crossover. VW got it right with the second-gen Tiguan unveiled in 2017. That model became Volkswagen’s best-selling vehicle in America. It did it by having a longer wheelbase than most competitors and three rows of seats, something the Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, and Honda CR-V don’t offer. The 2022 model still has a 4.3-inch […] Original article: 2022 VW Tigua...

Lidar startup Innovusion closes $64M round led by Temasek

More investors are joining the wave to bet on lidar, the remote sensing method that uses laser light to measure distances and has garnered ample interest from automakers in recent times. But it’s also a technology that has long been scorned by Elon Musk partly due to its once exorbitant costs. Innovusion, a five-year-old lidar company and a supplier to Chinese electric car upstart Nio, just landed a Series B funding round of $64 million. The new proceeds boost its total investment to over $100 m...

Investors cheer as Lyft’s Q1 revenue didn’t fall as much as expected

Investors gave Lyft’s value a small bump Tuesday after the American ride-hailing company reported results that weren’t quite as bad as the company, and Wall Street had expected.

Tundra Versus the F-150 – What’s Wrong with Toyota?

Can the Toyota Tundra go toe-to-toe with the Ford F-150, and does it make sense to try? The F-150 is the most popular vehicle in the U.S., despite a 12 percent drop in sales.

EasyMile raises $66M for its autonomous people-and-goods shuttles

‘Porsche Unseen’ Is A Rare Look Inside Porsche’s Design Studio

Porsche's design studio isn't based in some far-flung metropolitan like New York or Los Angeles or Tokyo. The company got its start in industrial design, after all, so why not keep everything in-house where it can be inspired by the depth of history and motor sport the brand is known for. That's why Porsche has kept its design studio in the quiet German town of Weissach. There's a reason Porsches look like Porsches, and could never be mistaken for another make. The whole company is so invested ...
