Junkyard Find: 2005 Volvo S60 With Five-speed Manual Transmission

I’ve documented 60 discarded Volvos since I started my junkyard history project, but 58 of those Swedes were born in the 20th century, and 44 of those rolled off the assembly line before 1990. Just as I’ve done with BMWs in recent years, I’m going to try to document some of Göteborg’s (and maybe Hangzhou’s) […] The post Junkyard Find: 2005 Volvo S60 With Five-speed Manual Transmission appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Lucid Motors’ all-electric Air will have 32 sensors, including lidar to support hands-free highway driving

Lucid Motors is loading up its first electric vehicle with hardware — dozens of sensors, a driver monitoring system and an Ethernet-based architecture — for an advanced driver assistance system that aims to match and even surpass its rivals. There will be 32 sensors in all, according to Lucid, which has branded its advanced driver assistance system DreamDrive. The total number isn’t what matters. The type and location — and of course, the software — does. For now, Lucid is just providing de...

Maybe Next Year: Volvo Pushes Back Sales Targets to 2021

Volvo Cars will be unable to reach its global volume target of 800,000 vehicles this year. Considering everything that has — or hasn’t — happened in 2020, any automaker that ends the period moving more metal than they did in 2019 should probably have a statue erected in front of their headquarters celebrating a major […] The post Maybe Next Year: Volvo Pushes Back Sales Targets to 2021 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

On Again, Off Again: Volvo Aims to Get South Carolina Plant Back in Gear, but Something’s Missing

Is there a U.S. assembly plant that’s not currently producing a utility vehicle that doesn’t need one? Perhaps, but that doesn’t describe Volvo Cars’ Ridgeville, South Carolina facility, which builds the new-for-2019 S60 sedan. A still-shiny plant situated near Charleston’s busy harbor that only opened a year prior to the S60’s launch, the facility shuttered […] The post On Again, Off Again: Volvo Aims to Get South Carolina Plant Back in Gear, but Something’s Missing appeared first on The Truth ...

The Safety Innovation That Put Volvo on the Map Is Behind Its Largest Recall

To be fair, three-point seat belts didn’t exactly set American consumers on fire back in 1959, but the innovation eventually caught on, becoming the industry’s dominant passive restraint. Yet even safety features can contain safety defects, which is why Volvo Cars is embarking on its largest recall to date. The (Chinese-owned) Swedish automaker has announced […] The post The Safety Innovation That Put Volvo on the Map Is Behind Its Largest Recall appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Waymo, Volvo partner to develop electric robotaxis

J.D. Power just published its 2020 Initial Quality Study, which it releases annually. Tesla scored the lowest among the 32 car brands included in the study.

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...

Pinwheel is the API platform for income verification that every fintech and neobank needs

A lot of founders start building one idea and in the process, find another one that is more alluring. Perhaps the most well-known example is Tiny Speck, a game publisher of a relatively uninteresting MMORPG where the founders grew sufficiently frustrated with their internal team communications tools that they migrated from game building to designing a chatting app known as Slack. That’s the story of Pinwheel and its founders Kurt Lin, Anish Basu, and Curtis Lee. Lee, who formerly founded Luxe, a...

The $41,000 Subaru Outback is still the king of wagons. Here's how it takes on the best SUVs on the market.

I tested a $40,705 Subaru Outback Touring XT, nicely equipped and sporting a snappy 2.4-liter, turbocharged, 260-horsepower engine and a surprisingly capable continuously variable transmission. Subaru has been steadily perfecting its mighty wagon since the mid-1990s. The sixth generation is the best yet. I was delighted by the Outback's versatility and comfort — but also thrilled by how much fun it was to drive. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. While the Subaru Outback migh...
