2016 BYD E6 Will Get Bigger Battery & Longer Range
May 24, 2015 - 5:38 PM - by ALS
Marketed at an aggressive $48,000 off the dealership lot, local and national incentives could bring the price down to just $35,000 in many parts of China.
Christopher Demorro - CLEANTECHNICA - May 24, 2015

Earlier this year, the Chinese electric car invasion quietly began with a pilot program in Chicago, where Uber drivers were offered a chance to test out the BYD E6. The 60 kWh battery pack provides up to 186 miles/300 km of driving range per charge, but for 2016 the BYD E6 will get a bigger battery that will let it go up to 250 miles/400 km between charge, reports Electric Vehicle News. That’s nearly as far as the Tesla Model S, but for a lot less money.... ... [Read More]

This kitchen table uses no electricity to regulate the temperature of your apartment
May 20, 2015 - 3:00 PM - by ALS
The table is essentially working like a “thermal sponge,” as Lagrange and Ménard put it, sucking up excess heat and then releasing it once the room becomes cool enough.
Megan Willett - YAHOO - May 20. 2015

Consisting simply of a surface and legs, the table is one piece of furniture that has remained largely the same for thousands of years.

But now, a French design duo has come up with a way to turn the humble table into a means of climate control that doesn't use any electricity.

Paris-based industrial designer Jean-Sébastien Lagrange teamed up with French engineer Raphaël Ménard to create the Zero Energy... [Read More]

2016 Ford F-150 CNG
May 11, 2015 - 12:50 PM - by xcel
Cleaner and domestically sourced fuel. Probably not the lowest cost solution over the short term but could make sense over a longer one.

While some Asian manufacturers have attempted to match the ride and handling prowess or overall experience of a 3-series, they usually come up short. Whether it is at the limits handling, overall...
