The F-Cell is the end result of $2 billion and 15 years of hydrogen research from Mercedes-Benz. The car I piloted around woodsy New Jersey (yes, it's green!) is nearing production.
Car sharing is growing rapidly in the U.S. and Europe, where it began. The next step is sharing personal cars, which sit idle more than 90 percent of the time. And California just made personal car sharing easier by taking away the insurance barriers.
Electric vehicles will change the way we shop for and buy cars, especially for the small start-up companies that need work-arounds the traditional dealer network. Are you ready to buy a car at a mall? At a big-box store?
Jay Leno has more than 100 cars in his garage, including vintage electrics. He likes EVs, especially the ones that ace the gas cars with good performance and a cure for "range anxiety."
You've seen the original Highway to Hell: Well, here are more unbelievable tales from our overflowing in box. Stay tuned for the second installment.
I will be the proud recipient of a long-term test fuel-cell Toyota, just one in a fleet of 10 coming to Connecticut as part of an ambitious effort to build a "hydrogen highway" from Maine to Florida.
A team of troubled high school kids and their mentors have built a competitive electric commuter car. And it's real life, not a movie.
The Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf are two mainstream electric vehicles, with some similarities but also significant differences. If it's highway driving you're after, the Volt is for you. The Leaf will be a great commuter car, but you may need something else for backup.
The assumption seems to be that urban EV early adopters will plug in at "home garages," but what does that mean when you live in an apartment building and work in an office tower? Maybe the solution is a downtown charging farm.
We're moving away from internal combustion, but what's next--and how fast will it happen? People are wagering on the uncertain future for plug-in and hydrogen cars, but there aren't any sure things out there.
People sometimes say one thing and do another when it comes to buying cars. They love fuel economy, but they also love seven seats, huge towing capacity and not having to pay more than they're already paying. What does this say about the prospects for EVs?
Chinese-made cars have faced persistent quality issues, but the country is now the world's largest auto market, and its major manufacturers are determined to make a dent in the western world. Why not? We buy everything else from the Chinese. Tom and Ray may soon be fielding questions about Cherys, Geelys and BYDs.
