The new GMC Hummer EV is aimed directly at the heart of traditional, gas-guzzling pickup truck buyers

2022 GMC Hummer EV. GMC The new Hummer EV looks like and is sized similarly to the original Hummers from the 2000s, which is a good thing. It is the halo car that will hopefully convince truck buyers and owners that EVs are cool. GM has built good electrified vehicles before, like the Volt plug-in hybrid and the Bolt EV, but neither are "cool" like the Hummer EV. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Hummer is back like the Great Recession never happened. Sort of.On Tuesday n...

GMC reveals the Hummer EV: 1,000 HP, 350 mile range, and 0-60 in “around 3 seconds”

General Motors today revealed the GMC Hummer EV, its first electric pickup. The vehicle has a 350 range, 1,000 HP, and up to 11,500 pound feet of torque (through fuzzy math). Yes, it sort of looks like the Tesla Cybertruck. Several key stats stick above the rest. The Hummer EV appears to have the longest battery of any GM vehicle with an electric powertrain. GM says the Hummer EV can hit 60 mph in around three seconds. It also has all-wheel steering, which allows it drive diagonally in a mode ca...

Gov. Newsom’s bid to drive California to a greener future: Doug McIntyre

Last week, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a phaseout of fossil fueled automobiles in California by the year 2035, which sounds like forever, but is only 15-years away and will fly by like that. (Imagine a finger snap.) The governor’s order means the end of the road for the internal combustion engine in the car capitol of the universe. It also begs the question, is there anything Newsom can’t do? If Gavin Newsom can prohibit a technology that has served us brilliantly for more than a century — witho...

E-bike Range: How far can I go?

One of the most common questions anyone asks about an e-bike is "How far can I go on a single charge?" While this sound like a simple question, a variety of factors go into this calculation and the most accurate response anyone can give is "it depends".Micah Toll is an e-bike writer and rider and he dives into the various considerations in detail in an article at:https://electrek.co/2020/06/12/how-far-can-an-electric-bicycle-really-go-on-a-charge/Now Micah is a very experienced e-bike enthusia...

Teslas and other electric cars get so much attention that hybrids can be overlooked. Check out the best ones from Toyota, Lexus, Honda, Range Rover, and BMW.

Electric vehicles get a lot of press, but there are still many new and used hybrids on the market. I currently own two Toyota hybrids and have been very satisfied with their combination of value, performance, reliability, and fuel-economy. Buyers aren't confined to Toyota, which put hybrids on the map with the Prius. That car has sold over three million units. Brands such as BMW, Range Rover, Ferrari, Acura, and the upstart carmaker Polestar offer terrific vehicles, at a range of prices. Hybri...

$350M 'Quant Fund' Played the Stock Market Using Real-Time Data -- Then 2020 Happened

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Next Web: Coatue's $350 million data-driven 'quant fund' made a swift exit from the market in early April -- having realized the coronavirus pandemic had rendered its algorithm unreliable, Business Insider reports. The tech-focused fund, launched by billionaire Philippe Laffont just over one year ago, joins a growing list of "quant funds" to have failed to turn a profit due to 2020's unpredictable nature. Quant funds use complex algorithms to find hid...

[Review] Volt Heat Fusion 12V-7V Dual Source Leather MC Heated Gloves

Foreword A big thank you is due to Chris at Volt Heat who supplied wBW with the 2XL Volt Heat Fusion 12V/7V Dual Source Leather Motorcycle Heated Gloves and subsequently, one of the first (new) Fusion Vests in XL with wireless Bluetooth interface and App (wBW review to follow).

This is (usually) followed by less white stuff but other precipitatio...

Behringer unveil Eurorack Go case; what does it mean for the rest of modular?

Behringer’s anticipated moves into Eurorack are arriving – with a Eurorack case to get you started. There’s no price, but the product does look a lot like an existing competitor. Behringer had already teased that they were planning low-cost entry into Eurorack modules, largely cloned from Roland’s decade-old vintage analog line. Behringer promised prices around fifty to a hundred bucks, deeply undercutting the prices of Roland’s own system 500, made in collaboration with boutique independent ...

Watching my Watts

Alan Scholz recently gave me a new KT-LCD6 display console for my ebike. It’s a bit bigger than my old KT-LCD5 console, but it shows me a few things that my old display didn’t. In addition to the usual speed, average speed, trip distance and total mileage, the new console also show me the current temperature, my cadence and the number of Watts the motor is consuming. The temperature sometimes reads a bit high if the bike has been sitting in the sun, but once I’m rolling it seems to be pretty a...

Trail Mix – Old Salt Union

Man, that’s a pretty record. What a superficial way to start a post about a great band, right? But I can’t lie. That orange vinyl disc spinning on my turntable is a sight to behold. And it sounds pretty darned good, too. Old Salt Union, the bluegrass quintet hailing from Belleville, Illinois, is out on the road following the release of Where The Dogs Don’t Bite, their newest record on the Compass Records label that dropped last month.

Chevrolet Volt Postmortem: How Not to Market a Car With a Gasoline Engine

February 15th was a sad day, even for those who hate cars. On that day, General Motors’ Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant produced the last Chevrolet Volt — a green car born at the dawn of a new era that didn’t take off exactly as envisioned. In the truck-loving land of (relatively) cheap gasoline, electric vehicles are […] The post Chevrolet Volt Postmortem: How Not to Market a Car With a Gasoline Engine appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Revolting against the modern automobile

I find myself saying things I never dreamed I would say when I was a kid. Things like, “I really like my brother-in-law’s husband” or “Which do you recommend, the farm-to-table artesian gluten-free soy-infused stuffed grape leaves or the hand-rubbed fig-glazed pulled free-range pork with Himalayan salt crown?”  Just the other night, for the very first time ever, The Wife asked, “Did you plug in the car?” The electric car thing is new for us.

Running an Ebike on Solar Energy: The Sheddy Kilowatt Story

Five minutes after I installed a solar panel on the roof of my bike shed it began to rain. Since this was April in Oregon, the rain was not an unusual or unforseen event and in fact the next five days were rainy and mostly cloudy. But even on those damp days my solar system managed to generate enough power to not only charge my ebike, but also my phone, Android tablet and radio batteries. After that first week, I knew that I had pieced together a workable system. It's not fancy or particula...

With the recent loss of the Chevrolet Volt, the term “range-extended electric vehicle” risks going the way of the passenger pigeon, closing the door on the era in which automakers tried to lure nervous buyers into an *almost* electric car that contained a gasoline engine only for sporadic electricity generation.

GM joins Tesla in losing value of electric vehicle tax credit

Tax credits for buying a Chevrolet Bolt, left, or Volt are going down on April 1. (Photo courtesy Driving Canada) The climate change debate rages on in political circles, but on U.S. roadways, many folks are voting, as the old saying goes, with their pocketbooks. They're buying more energy efficient and less polluting cars. And Uncle Sam has been part of that sales campaign. A federal tax credit that can be as much as $7,500 has convinced some Americans to trade in their gas guzzlers for el...

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.

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.
