Finally the 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid!
Mar 26, 2015 - 11:38 AM - by xcel
Wonderful 2.5L Camry Hybrid drivetrain and all the utility you could ever want.

2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – Just a peek... For now.

This morning Toyota finally announced the RAV4 Hybrid that it will show at this years New York International Auto Show on April 2nd.

It should have the same lineage as the very intriguing 2015 Lexus NX 300h. Meaning a modern interior and appointments and a little more edgy exterior design.

I will assume an AWD variant will be available or will be soon after the launch of the FWD model?

I also expect to see the Avalon/HiHy/NXh Qi built... [Read More]

Would You Buy the $55,000 Hayabusa Powered Tanom Motors Invader?
Mar 26, 2015 - 10:51 AM - by ALS
Steering, gas, brake and clutch are likes a normal car's layout, and the shifting is available as a paddle or center lever.

William Connor - - March 26, 2015

Forget the boring modern closed cockpit car and the snowmobile styling of the Spyder. The Tanom TC-3 packs a 197 hp Hayabusa motor, carbon fiber with a sequential shifter, and a huge rear tire that flat rips it.

That's prototype number 1 you see above. It has an open cabin that gives you a view of the front wheels articulating over road imperfections. It also has steering you haven't experienced since running a go-kart, and that... [Read More]

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid – Pricing TBA and at least a 45 mpg combined rating… Scheduled for the global reveal in NY on April 1.

A complete redesign of the Malibu for 2016 despite being a complete redesign for the 2013 MY. The company added a much needed 4 inches of wheelbase which will cure that “small kids only” backseat!!! The profile looks more modern... [Read More]

Glow in the Dark Battery Electric Cars and Roadways

Ford's new car will force you to obey the speed limit
Mar 24, 2015 - 2:16 PM - by ALS
A camera mounted on the windshield scans the road signs on the sides of the highway

Daniel Cooper - ENGADGET - March 24, 2015

Much as we'd like to emulate our NASCAR heroes, breaking the speed limit often comes at a price. Ford is hoping to prevent accidents and speeding tickets by introducing cars that can see what the speed limit is and preventing heavy-footed motorists from driving any faster. Ford's Intelligent Speed Limiter tech will first appear on the new Ford S-Max that's launching in Europe that could just change the way that we drive.

The ridiculous reason why Hong Kong malls are extremely cold
Mar 20, 2015 - 8:33 AM - by ALS
Air conditioning in Hong Kong makes up as much as 30% of all electricity used in the city each year, and that number skyrockets to as much as 60% during the summer

http://www.cleanmpg.com/photos/data/500/The_ridiculous_reason_why_Hong-Kong.jpg
Megan Willett - - March 20, 2015

All in the perception of luxury or a sign of wealth, give me a break --Ed.

Shoppers keep their coats on while walking past a Hugo Boss store.It’s a common problem that come summer, everyone in Hong Kong gets a cold. It has nothing to do with the temperatures outside, but instead the constant and unrelenting air conditioning inside.

Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Mar. 18, 2015

Kia’s revolutionary designs were spearheaded by the current President of Hyundai Kia Motor Company & Hyundai Motor Group, Mr. Peter Schreyer. As Chief Design Officer and President of Hyundai Motor Group of Kia Motors Corp., from September 2006 through late 2012, Mr. Schreyer almost single-handedly reworked the entire Kia lineup with a new design direction to attract a younger customer. The current gen Optima was his tour de force. Even without a redesign the Optima continues to be one of the most attractive mid-sizes available in North America today.
