Apr 27, 2015 - 10:48 AM - by xcel
More efficient is a very good thing.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 27, 2015

2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata - $30,495 + $820 D&H with the short throw 6-speed MT now offers a 27/34 mpgUS city/highway rating vs. todays 22/28 result. 27/36 with the new 6-speed AT.

The first generation MX-5 was introduced 25 years ago whereas the all-new fourth generation stays true to the model’s original driving fun intent that only a lightweight sports car can.

New Factory-Installed Strobe LEDs Available On All 2016 Ford Super Dutys
Apr 26, 2015 - 11:47 PM - by xcel
Meets DOT specs, protects workers and the rest of us.

Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 26, 2015

OEM fit strobes for the 2016 Ford Super Duty - $700 + no drill installation.

While the release was supposed to add a little fun with some Morse Code strobe play, the idea is worth a front page story on the safety front.

The 2015 incorporates Ford’s second-generation 440 hp and 860 lb.-ft. of torque 6.7L Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel across all Super Duty models from F-250 to F-450. With competitors touting higher tow ratings, we can expect Ford to provide a... [Read More]

Apple Watch and the BMW i
Apr 25, 2015 - 3:35 PM - by xcel
How much control from a watch sized display is too much? Too little?
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 25, 2015

Apple Watch - $349 to $17,000 USD in 38 and 42 mm sizes – Great for fit and fitness plus short phone conversations, short messages and notifications. Plus more.

The iPhone-compatible smartwatch arrived yesterday and already some are hailing it is the next big thing. I remain leery. It keeps time within 50 milliseconds of global time standard via built in GPS. It allows customization of the face and can be purchased in up to 38 different configurations including multiple case materials, colors, sizes and interchangeable Apple Watch bands.

2016 Scion iA Preview
Apr 24, 2015 - 11:52 AM - by xcel
It may not have raised a single heart rate in NY but it may provide the perfect first time buyer experience.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 24, 2015

All-new 2016 Scion iA - $16k starting price with the 6-speed MT offers a 31/41/35 mpgUS city/highway/combined rating. The 6-speed AT is rated at 33/42/37 mpgUS city/highway/combined.

While the Toyota Yaris sales continues to languish thanks in part to a drivetrain and interior that has barely been updated in a decade, Scion expanded its line-up with the addition of its first-ever sedan based on the all-new upcoming Yaris that will be called the iA.

The new Scion will arrive in dealerships this fall with a... [Read More]

Apr 23, 2015 - 2:25 PM - by xcel
The efficiency of the overall process is around 70 percent.

2015 Audi A3 TDI – Someday we may be driving this almost GHG and SMOG forming emissions free with no sacrifice in performance or efficiency.

Another Study Showing BEVs in Decline
Apr 23, 2015 - 9:21 AM - by xcel
You cannot turn around without reading a study beating up on the electric car nowadays.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 23, 2015

Nissan LEAF production will surely slow.

From the SAE World Congress in Detroit this week, Continental added their own research to the short term demise of the electric car.

According to the Mobility study commissioned by Continental, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) barely evoke any emotion to purchase or drive. Within the company commissioned study, a majority of respondents see BEVs as environmentally friendly (71%), but image factors play a key role in the purchase decision and BEVs rank low on the list of desire.

Given this was a German study, the... [Read More]

2016 Toyota Mirai FCV - $499 per month/36 month lease with $3649 due at lease signing, or purchase for $57,500 with free H2 fuel where you can find it for three years.

The normally ultra conservative Japanese automakers went out on a limb earlier today with their latest online advert. The spot was intended to show what the H2 revolution can and will do for... [Read More]

Safest Full-sized Pickup Belongs to the 2015 Ford F-150
Apr 22, 2015 - 6:16 PM - by xcel
5-stars across the board on the NHTSA.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 22, 2015

2015 Ford F-150 – $27,040 incl. D&H to start – RWD XL with the 2.7L EcoBoost and 6-speed AT – offers owners a 19/26 mpgUS city/highway rating.

The 2015 Ford F-150 is built from a high-strength military-grade, 2013 aluminum-alloy body and high-strength steel frame. High-strength steel in the frame was increased from 23 percent to 77 percent over its predecessor creating a pickup frame that is stronger, more durable and structurally more rigid. Thousands of crash test simulations were conducted to help ensure its structural integrity in front, side, rear and rollover impacts.

Gas price fallout: People trading in hybrids for SUVs
Apr 22, 2015 - 10:31 AM - by ALS
In the first quarter of 2015, new hybrid car sales was only 2.7% of the market. That's down from 3.3% in the same period last year.
Peter Valdes-dapena - CNN - April 22, 2015

George Santayana: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." --Ed.

With gas prices low, more people are trading in their hybrid and electric cars for purely gasoline-powered vehicles, including SUVs.

So far this year, only 45% of people that traded in an environmentally-friendly hybrid car purchased another, according statisticians at In 2012, that figure was over 60% and this is the first time it... [Read More]

2015 Lexus ES 300h Review
Apr 21, 2015 - 5:36 PM - by xcel
One of the best gets even better.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 19, 2015

2015 Lexus ES 300h - $40,580 to start + $925 D&H offers owners a 40/39/40 mpgUS city/highway/combined rating.

On the eve of the next generation Lexus ES being revealed in Shanghai just hours from now, I have to admit some upfront bias. Despite Lexus now offering 6 full hybrids across its lineup including the CT, ES, GS, LS, NX and RX, the ES 300h is by far my favorite Lexus. From our first drive of the 2013 Lexus ES 300h at the short lead in Newberg, OR four years ago, through to the various MAMA Rally's, the... [Read More]

Why Hyundai Is So Fricken Cool!
Apr 18, 2015 - 10:57 PM - by xcel
“A Message to Space” is thinking way outside the box and off the planet.
Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - April 18, 2015

Hyundai – New Thinking, New Possibilities put into practice.

Earlier this week Hyundai created something that is quite literally out of this world. From the release, Hyundai used the brand’s ‘New Thinking’ approach to connect a family from a distance that set a Guinness World Record in the process. When the daughter of an astronaut on the International Space Station (ISS) had a special hand-written letter to send to her father, Hyundai found an ‘out of the world’ way to share her message.
