REVIEW: The $60,000 Polestar 2 luxury EV solves the worst part about driving a Tesla

2021 Polestar 2. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The Polestar 2 is the first all-electric car from Polestar, a new brand from Volvo and Geely. It competes against the Tesla Model 3, Jaguar I-Pace, and Audi e-Tron. Prices start at $59,900. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The future-is-now characteristics are the same.

Junkyard Find: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbodiesel with 411,448 miles

I like to search for junkyard vehicles with exceptionally high final odometer readings, a task made more difficult by the fact that just about every manufacturer besides Volvo and Mercedes-Benz used five-digit odometers well into the 1980s. Even in the middle 1980s, most cars weren’t really expected to hit the 100,000-mile mark … unless they […] The post Junkyard Find: 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Turbodiesel with 411,448 miles appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Speed Read, 13 December 2020

It’s all about Honda this week, with a Gundam-inspired limited edition Monkey from Thailand, a murdered-out Dommie from Sweden, and a crisp XR650 supermotard from Italy. The outlier is a modern BMW GS sidecar rig that could transport two in comfort from one end of a continent to another. Honda Dominator by Gorm Taube The evergreen Dommie is a brilliant bike for modification: it’s tough, has excellent parts support, and is relatively cheap and easy to find. This stealthy custom is one of th...

REVIEW: The $155,000 Polestar 1 is unlike any car on the road - and a collector's item waiting to happen

2020 Polestar 1. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The Polestar 1 is a hybrid coupe from Geely, the Chinese parent company behind Lotus and Volvo. It's a slick-looking thing that returned nearly 60 miles of electric-only driving in our testing. But it's expensive and rare; the starting price is $155,000 and only 1,500 examples will be made.

In Review: 2020 Volvo XC90 T8 Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) may be the best choice for those who like electrics but need more range. A PHEV will run on its battery alone after you plug in it, but once that runs out, it'll keep going as long as it has fuel in its tank. Volvo has a few, including my tester, the XC90 T8.

“A terrible idea”: Car Crash Survivors React to Quotes Once Said About the Invention That Saved Their Lives.

After Volvo Cars invented the three-point safety belt in 1959, its introduction sparked debate among media and the public. But to date it’s been credited with saving more than a million lives worldwide. The premium carmaker now highlights this in a new brand campaign, by letting car crash survivors read what people said about the safety belt in the past. And it sounds eerily familiar even today. “The seatbelt is a violation of human rights”. “It's better to be thrown out than to be tra...
