GM is transforming Cadillac into an electric brand

General Motors is turning Cadillac into its lead electric vehicle brand in a bid to compete against Tesla as well as a host of other automakers bringing EVs onto the market. Plans are already underway to introduce the first model from the company’s new battery electric vehicle architecture, GM said Friday during an investor meeting. GM said this new BEV architecture will be the foundation for an advanced family of “profitable EVs,” a  word choice  likely meant to express the automaker’s convi...

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...

I drove a $44,000 Chevy Bolt for a weekend and saw just how far electric cars have come — but I also discovered a huge problem (GM)

I drove a 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV for a weekend at the end of July. The version I drove cost $43,905. The base price for the Bolt's standard trim is $37,495. It was the first time I'd driven an electric vehicle in real-world conditions for more than an hour. I was impressed with the Bolt's ride quality, acceleration, handling, and driver-assistance features. But when I tried to charge the vehicle, I realized the limitations of current charging infrastructure.    When General Motors' Chevrolet ...

Usain Bolt's trial done at Central Coast Mariners, will leave club

Usain Bolt has quit his A-League trial, rejecting a contract offer from the Central Coast Mariners.

Central Coast were understood to have offered Bolt a contract in the vicinity of $150,000, without any guarantee that the Jamaican would get an A-League game. Bolt's camp, the Mari...

The modern classic, Honda style: Bolt’s 1995 Seven Fifty

By the time the nineties rolled around, the reputation of the Honda CB750 was losing its luster. The iconic straight four had softened, and the F2 model was more suited to cruising than blasting through canyons. But the build quality and engineering was still top-notch, which makes the ‘Seven Fifty’ a good used buy today. This sleek build from Spain’s Bolt Motor Co. ditches the clunky styling and cranks up the dynamics with a major suspension upgrade. “We built this for our friend Santiag...

Sphero launches Bolt, as education moves front and center

Announced today, the Bolt returns those core technologies and introduces some new elements, while doubling down on the new-found focus of education.

I drove a $44,000 Chevy Bolt for a weekend and discovered 2 things the automaker needs to improve (GM)

Near the end of July, I spent a weekend driving a $44,000 Chevrolet Bolt EV Premier. I enjoyed the Bolt and didn't find any major problems, though I did notice two small but annoying features. The Bolt's gearshift wasn't as intuitive as I would have liked.  And the seat-side compartment behind the gearshift was also difficult to use.
