This Automaker Says Electric Pickup Trucks Aren’t Happening Yet — Here’s Why

Over the past nine years, General Motors (and its various subsidiaries) have been producing various plug-in models, including the Chevrolet Volt and Bolt EV, Cadillac ELR and CT6 Plug-in Hybrid.  And in recent months we’ve seen General Motors promise more and more electric vehicles in the near future, with plans to bring ten new electric models to market in the next few years.

But in a recent interview, GM exeuctive Mike Abelson said that while GM was planning on lots of electric vehicles in its future (and saw electric cars as mandatory not optional), GM wasn’t planning on bringing any electric pickups to market any time soon.

Why is this? Is GM against the electric car? Are naysayers right? Or is there another reason?

Elon Musk: Ford Might Not Survive The Next Recession. Is He Right?

Look back over the past decade, and you might notice that Tesla and Ford — specifically Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Ford — have had something of an adversarial relationship.

From Ford questioning Tesla’s business models and sustainability to Elon Musk describing the Detroit Automaker as having an environment like a ‘morgue,’ the two very different sides of the auto industry haven’t really seen eye to eye. That said, Musk has noted several times that Ford — like Tesla — managed to survive the last recession (all be it by the skin of its metaphorical teeth).

And during his recent sit-down interview with Kara Swisher from Recode:Decode (link here: https://www.recode.net/2018/11/2/18053428/recode-decode-full-podcast-transcript-elon-musk-tesla-spacex-boring-company-kara-swisher) Musk went further than he’s gone in his criticism of Ford, suggesting the company won’t survive the next recession.

Given many economists say that’s just around the corner — how likely is it that Musk is right. Or, is he doing what he’s very good at — building hype?

Should Business Fleet Operators Be Able To Charge For Free At “Free” Charging Stations?

In order to incentivize the adoption of electric vehicles, some charging station providers, utility companies and municipalities (as well as some dealerships) offer free use of their electric car charging stations to any members of the public who wish to charge there car there.

While some networks ban access to free charging for those who operate businesses with electric car fleets (like taxi firms) others don’t, and it’s not unusual to see a fleet-owned electric car charging up at a free charging station.

But should they be allowed to?

Worried About Battery Degradation? Tesla Model X, Bolt EV Owners Show The Way

This video is sponsored by Climate-XChange.org and its third annual CarbonRaffle.

Enter today at https://www.carbonraffle.org/ to have a chance at winning a Tesla Model X, Model S, or Tesla Model 3 Performance +. Runners up prizes include a Tesla Model 3 Dual Motor Long Range (second place) and a Tesla Model 3 Standard Range (third place).

———-

Battery degradation — the slow, inexorable loss of a battery’s ability to store charge — is a very real problem in our modern lives. Anything with a lithium-ion battery pack, be it a gadget or a car, can suffer it (although scientists are still doing everything they can to develop the ‘holy grail battery’ that doesn’t suffer degradation, can charge super quickly, and last forever).

In the electric car world, fears over battery degradation and the resulting loss in range have put some people off buying a plug-in car, especially after the horror that was the premature capacity loss experienced by early Nissan LEAFs caused by excess heat in Arizona.

Now two very good videos have surfaced online teaching us that battery degradation on the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Tesla Model X isn’t anything to be scared about… and why you’re unlikely to notice it for many tens of thousands of miles.

This Classic British Car Is All-Electric, 100% Recycled — and Affordable Too!

One of the challenges when it comes to making a vehicle sustainable is ensuring that it has as long a life as possible after it has rolled off the production line.

This usually focuses on ensuring the car has parts and spares to keep it running long into its second decade, and that its owner does everything they can to keep the car in good condition.

But in London, England, there’s a company called London Electric Cars that’s going well beyond that. It’s turning classic cars into electric vehicles that are good to let for many more years, are affordable — and make use of recycled battery packs.

The Jaguar iPace Has Terrible Energy Efficiency: Will Buyers Mind?

Electric cars have traditionally not only been sold as being environmentally-friendly, but also showcased as having a better energy efficiency when compared to internal combustion engined cars.

But Jaguar’s first all-electric car — the 2019 Jaguar iPace — has truly terrible energy efficiency, managing less range per charge than many vehicles which have far smaller battery packs.

It is in essence, an ‘electron guzzler’ when compared to other models.

But is it important? And will Buyers Mind?

Will This Little Engine Swap Change Muscle Cars Forever?

In recent years, electric cars have managed to make some significant inroads into several different market segments.

Tesla dominates the premium segment, outselling internal combustion engine competition. Cars like the Nissan LEAF, Hyundai KONA Electric and Chevrolet Bolt EV have begun to tackle the daily-driver segment.

But to date, no plug-in car has successfully managed to make an impact in the muscle car world. That is, until Chevrolet’s latest concept car — the Chevy e-COPO Camaro — made an appearance at SEMA last week. And it got us thinking. Does it have what it takes to change hearts and minds on the drag strip?

Does Tesla Want Right to Repair Or Not?

In the last few years we’ve seen the right-to-repair movement gain some significant traction around the world, with many successful court cases challenging existing legislation and some countries and regions even introducing bills designed to make it easier to repair things you own.

Last week, Tesla published its parts catalog online for the first time (https://epc.teslamotors.com/#/catalogs), making it easier than ever before for Tesla enthusiasts to figure out part numbers and (in some cases) order replacements.

But is Tesla really supportive of Right to Repair — or is it just following what the rest of the industry is doing? And is this new parts catalog useful or not?

Do You Think About The Energy You Use? (And Why You Should)

If you drive a plug-in car and buy your electricity from a renewable electricity supplier, it’s super easy to become complacent about your energy use.

After all, if you’re paying for electricity that’s been generated using renewable sources of power, then why should you worry?

But it turns out that even if you’re buying clean power, there’s still some things you can do to help reduce the load on the electrical grid and make the planet a nicer place to live.

Here’s What You Need To Do To Operate a Driverless Car in California.

As autonomous car technology becomes ever-impressive, we’re at a point where cars are being tested on the public highway with a safety driver only present for legal reasons.

In Arizona, autonomous vehicles have even been operating for a year without a safety driver behind the wheel.

Now Waymo has become the first company to receive a permit from the California DMV to operate driverless cars in the state. And unlike Arizona, its regulations concerning autonomous vehicles are pretty strict.

So here’s what you’d need to do (for now) to operate an autonomous car in the Golden State.

This Car Company Is “Insolvent”. And No, It’s Not Tesla

There are lots of startup automakers out there desperate to be the next Tesla, desperate to change the world, and desperate to have a piece of the electric car market.

In more than a decade of covering the EV world, we’ve seen many come and go. Some have fizzled out. Others have gone with a bang. But in nearly ever case, watching executives leave is an early warning sign that things are going down hill.

This week, Faraday Future lost two of its executives, one of whom was a company co-founder.

Here’s what’s left — and what we can learn from what now seems to be an inevitable death.

Five Things We Need To Improve About Electric Cars

Over the past few years, there have been some very impressive improvements in electric car technology, giving us more affordable, longer-range cars that aren’t just suitable for short-distance trips but can also be used for longer-distance travel and meet the average family’s needs as their sole vehicle.

Despite that however, there are still some thorny issues that need to be addressed to dismiss naysayers and ensure that electric cars really are the solution that everyone hopes they will be.

Here’s the top five things we think need to be addressed by electric car companies, enthusiasts, owners, and politicians alike.

Is General Motors Serious About Electric Cars Or Not?

General Motors was once the boogeyman of the electric car world, thanks to its active involvement in ending the original California Zero Emission Vehicle mandate and crushing a whole lot of perfectly good, operation cars in the form of the EV1.

But in recent years, its attitude toward electric cars has evolved, producing both the Chevrolet Volt and more recently the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

Last week, in response to the period of consultation in the U.S. for rolling back CAFE standards, GM called on the current administration to bring about a nationwide ZEV mandate in the U.S.  A few days later, it expressed opinion that the previous CAFE targets (as set by the Obama administration) weren’t appropriate and were too tough.

So is GM in favor of electric cars or not?

Why Tesla Needs To Slow Down All Those Price, Spec Changes

When Tesla first launched, its no-nonsense  attitude to sales meant that customers knew exactly how much their car would cost. It also meant that they didn’t have to worry about dealerships price gouging or inventing new adding to their car’s sticker price.

But recently, Tesla has been changing the price of its car and its various option packages at such a blistering rate that it’s becoming difficult to know just how much a Tesla costs.

Here’s why it might be confusing consumers and here’s why it needs to slow down its pricing changes a lot.

Could This Pickup Truck Design Help Change The World?

Pickup trucks are extremely practical vehicles. They can haul large amounts of things, they can tow large trailers, and some are pretty good off-road too.

But while they’re loved for their utilitarian functionality, pickup trucks aren’t exactly all that efficient or clean when it comes to tailpipe emissions and fuel economy. And if we’re really to make a difference when it comes to global vehicular emissions, it’s likely our pickup trucks will need to get cleaner and greener too.

With battery shortages causing many issues around the world and the costs associated with building large pickups with large capacity battery packs a matter of concern, is there a way that could allow customers to have the best of both worlds?

Yes. It’s Called a plug-in series parallel pickup. And while some truck companies are trying to bring such vehicles to market, they lack some of the clout of larger automakers to make it happen.

Here’s why it needs to, however.

Could The New 2019 Zero Motorcycles Get You On Two Wheels?

Depending on where you live and what your own personal views of motorcycles are (and how motorcyclists are treated by other road users), they can make a great commuter vehicle.

And in the last few years we’ve seen more and more electric motorcycles hit the market, offering the convenience of two wheels with the zero tailpipe emissions of an EV. Most of those motorcycles have either been super expensive — or very under-powered.

Zero has just launched its new 2019 range, and has made some tweaks to bring the price of its entry-level FX and FXS motorcycles down. It’s also tweaked its higher-end models for more range and speed.

It’s got us thinking: are these new models enough to get you onto two wheels?

Tesla Makes A Profit (And Other Things You Should Know) in Q3 2018!

It’s official!

After many long quarters of increasing losses and rather turbulent share prices on Wall Street, Tesla has reported its Q3 earnings for 2018, showing a healthy profit. (You can read the report for yourself here: http://ir.tesla.com/static-files/725970e6-eda5-47ab-96e1-422d4045f799 )

It’s far more than the profit shown two years ago — and this time seems to suggest Tesla is going to be staying profitable this time.

We break down the important figures for you — and tell you what else the Quarterly Earnings call can tell you about Tesla’s future.

Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range: Buy, or Wait For Standard Range Instead?

Last week, Tesla surprised us all by announcing the start of production of a new variant of the Tesla Model 3 — The Tesla Model 3 Mid-Range.

With a longer range (and slightly higher price tag) than the Tesla model 3 standard range, the Model 3 Mid Range is priced at $45,000 U.S. before incentives. After incentives (assuming you can get them) it is priced pretty close to the promised $35,000 pre-incentive price for the standard Model 3.

By the time Tesla brings the standard Model 3 to market, there’s a possibility that incentives will either be much lower or non-existent for electric cars, so the question is this: should you buy a Mid-Range Model 3, or hold out for the most affordable model instead?

Why You Won’t Be Able To Get an Audi e-Tron Yet…

Earlier this autumn, Audi unveiled the production version of the e-tron SUV.

Promising European customers who ordered the limited-production “First Edition” version would get their cars delivered toward the end of this year, with customers elsewhere in the world due to get theirs by this time next, Audi seemed to be ready to enter into the plug-in marketplace with earnest.

But now it turns out that there’s a spanner in the works: a software issue and reported battery shortages could hold the e-tron launch up.

Making Informed Choices — Why It Goes Beyond The Car

We’re all used to shopping for vehicles based on the particular specifications we’re looking for — range, speed, load-carrying.

But is there something else we should be taking into consideration: the energy used to create our cars — and how energy efficient each automakers’ facilities are?
