PostHeaderIcon Donald Trump’s Tariffs Affect Ford’s Workforce in a Seriously Negative Way

The political atmosphere in the States is not exactly calm right now. The U.S. and China have locked horns, and it’s Ford that has to bear the brunt. Just a couple of weeks after Ford’s CEO reported that the company was set to lose $1 billion because of the trade war, it is now being said that Ford may go on a layoff spree that could see over 20,000 people losing their jobs.

PostHeaderIcon Trump Boosts Sales of Corn Ethanol

Ethanol

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that he urged the EPA to increase the sales of corn-based ethanol which would allow the year-round sale of E15 gas, which up by 5 percent over the blends that are now being sold in the U.S. Currently, the Clean Air Act restricts the sale of E15 gas during the months of summer. E15 gas is a mix of fuel that contains 85% gas and 15% ethanol.

PostHeaderIcon New Hyperloop Pod Unveiled, Could Go Into Service Next Year

Meet the world’s first full-scale hyperloop capsule, called Quintero One (quintero in Spanish means “fifth”), a 32-meter/105-foot plane without wings or windows, for lack of a better comparison. It’s expected to be “optimized and ready for passengers” in 2019, and its makers are touting it as possibly the safest form of transportation in the world.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model 3 Sells Like Crazy, Leaves Hyundai, Nissan in the Dust

Despite nagging production issues, the Tesla Model 3 is fast becoming one of America’s best-selling sedans. Monthly and quarterly sales totals in the last three months ending in September revealed that the Model 3 outsold all but four of the top sedans sold in the U.S., regardless of their size and price. In that time span, Tesla sold around 55,800 units of the Model 3, outselling far more established models like the Nissan Sentra, Hyundai Elantra, Ford Fusion, and Chevrolet Malibu. The only four models that outsold the Model 3 are the Toyota Corolla, Toyota Camry, Honda Civic, and Honda Accord.

PostHeaderIcon General Motors and Honda Collaborate On Autonomous Technology

A lot of partnerships are arising these days. It’s not just automakers and tech companies, but also automakers and automakers. This time, it’s General Motors and Honda teaming up to take on the world with Autonomous Technology. General Motors and Cruise Automation announced collaboration with Japanese giant, Honda that will seek “large-scale deployment” of technology for autonomous vehicles.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen and Microsoft Team-Up For Cloud Connectivity

Technology is evolving at an insane pace in the automotive world. With some new tech added to our cars literally every day, it’s no more a buy-off-the-counter scene for automakers. That is one of the many reasons why automakers and technology companies are collaborating, the latest of which are Volkswagen and Microsoft.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla CEO Elon Musk Settles With SEC After Tesla Shares Take a Beating

Elon Musk is stepping down as chairman of Tesla as part of a settlement reached with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The man behind companies like Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company will be allowed to remain CEO, but he must vacate his position as chairman of the board within 45 days and cannot seek re-election for three years. Tesla has also agreed to pay a $20 million fine as part of the settlement stemming from a tweet he posted announcing that he had secured funding to take Tesla private.

PostHeaderIcon Ford’s F-150 Plant Celebrates a Century in Operation

The Ford River Rouge Complex in Dearborn, Michigan is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and Ford isn’t holding back in letting everyone know about it. The facility is special, even remarkable, in a lot of people’s eyes because it’s the only production facility in the U.S. to manufacture cars uninterrupted for 100 years. And just as the complex its centennial anniversary, Ford is already adding more facilities inside the complex in preparation for the automaker’s future manufacturing processes.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen’s Looks to Build Automated Systems with Virtual Test Drives

Volkswagen breaks new ground with its foray into the virtual world as an avenue to test its new driver assistance systems faster while also reducing expenses. Is it a double-edged sword, though?

As automakers worldwide make leaps and bounds towards a brave new world of automation, green energy and efficiency, German manufacturer Volkswagen set about trying a new way of testing its driver assistance systems that will be part of the new I.D. lineup of vehicles. Lengthy real-world tests where prototypes are taken out on the open road or on test facilities will be a thing of the past, thinks Volkswagen, who wants to replace all of that with virtual simulations. They should, in theory, be programmed to feature as many scenarios as needed to get the systems through their testing phases.

The process to move testing from the real-world to a computer-generated virtual one is complicated, but Volkswagen is already trying out the idea with virtual parking simulations where all the parameters can be altered to suit the needs of those conducting the experiments. This all sounds great, but can computer-generated simulations, regardless of computing power and intricacy, really provide the same randomness that actual testing on the open road gives? Will cars that go on sale with systems that went through virtual testing be as well prepared as those that had a bigger chunk of their testing done on the roads? Volkswagen did not officially say they plan to eliminate real testing from the procedure of introducing new driving assistance systems, so we have to wait and see.

Read on to learn more about Volkswagen’s new virtual testing and more

PostHeaderIcon Elon Musk Accused of Fraud, SEC Sues to Remove Him from Tesla

Elon ‘Controversy’ Musk is in the news yet again. This time, it seems serious. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has accused Musk of fraud. What fraud, you ask? The agency says he made a series of “false and misleading” tweets about potentially taking Tesla private last month. They want him fired from Tesla.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Assists In Dino Bone Dig

Toyota is lending a helping hand to a team of paleontologists from the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis who are surveying an undisclosed site in northern Wyoming. The team of scientists, led by world-renowned paleontologists Dr. Phil Manning and Dr. Victoria Egerton, are in the area looking for fossilized dinosaur bones. Toyota is supporting the expedition by lending a pair of Tundra pickups and a Land Cruiser to help carry the scientists, their gear, and whatever fossils they dig up.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Partners With Lyft and Uber to Leverage Big Data and Reduce Traffic

In a press release, Ford Motor Company, Lyft, Uber, and the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) have announced that they are teaming up with SharedStreets, to study and analyze traffic conditions in cities and find ways to decongest the roads. This urban mobility study will enable them to make the city roads more efficient. This collaboration was announced by Jim Hackett, Khosrowshahi, and Zimmer, CEOs of Ford, Uber and Lyft, at the second annual Bloomberg Global Business Forum in New York City.

PostHeaderIcon CTS-V and ATS-V are Axed to Make Way for the 2019 Cadillac CT6-V

Cadillac has announced it will reposition the recently revealed CT6 V-Sport as an actual V-branded model. That’s all well and good, but it apparently entails waving goodbye to the excellent ATS-V and CTS-V performance sedans. Both will be taken out of production by the spring of 2019, and in their place will be the CT6-V, once more performance bits are added on.

PostHeaderIcon Are Crossovers and SUVs Becoming Daddy’s Car? Nissan Thinks So and Hopes It’ll Boost Sedan Sales

Just as almost every automaker is stirring into the SUV skid, Nissan is stirring against it with the launch of the sixth-generation Altima. The Japanese auto brand is pulling out all the stops with the new version of the midsize sedan that, according to the company, represents “one of the highest investments in the history of Nissan.” The new Altima sits on a new platform, a new engine, and a new all-wheel-drive system.

PostHeaderIcon Do These Road-Installed Solar Panels Hint Toward a Future of Solar Power or Prove a Different Approach is Needed?

If you remember, there was a campaign a while back that proposed the idea of fighting climate change with solar panel roads. The idea was to replace the tarmac on the road with solar panels. At that time, the campaign went viral and people lauded the whole concept. The idea underwent some road testing since then, and studies from the first results don’t look very promising. Didn’t we all see this coming?

PostHeaderIcon Porsche Pulls the Plug On Diesel

Amidst the aftermath of Volkswagen’s diesel scandal, Porsche has decided to ditch diesel engines from its line-up entirely. The Stuttgart automaker is exploring hybrid and electric technology since the segment is picking up pace at an alarming rate, which has reduced diesel sales substantially. The question now is, how will this affect Porsche sales in the future?

PostHeaderIcon 5 Incredible Automotive Facts

In our new TopSpeed series about the most incredible car facts in the world, you will be treated with five of them every week. For this week, I will go back to 1888 and Martha Benz’s first voyage in the very first automobile. Then, I’ll tell you all about the curiously low car and explain how horses were bigger pollutants than cars.

Let’s start with something unexpected though.

PostHeaderIcon Porsche and Hyundai are Looking to Add Augmented Reality to Future Models

The images posted look like screenshots from a video game with so many details around the windshield, but this is the reality that might soon be seen in Porsches and Hyundais. The automakers have invested in a company called WayRay, which is basically into augmented reality. In simple words, your ordinary head-up display is going to get all the more intuitive with a lot more information.

PostHeaderIcon To Go with the 2019 Audi e-tron Debut, Audi promises 12 production EVs by 2025

Audi has just unveiled its first full-electric offering, the e-tron SUV. To go with that debut, the brand also announced plans to have no fewer than 12 EVs in its range by the year 2025. These models will apparently range in size from compact to full-size, and there’s a good chance most will be high-riding vehicles – the brand’s SUV- and crossover-centric approach is clear based solely on the first all-electric model they chose to launch.

PostHeaderIcon SpaceX is Officially Sending a Space Tourist Around the Moon!

Elon Musk’s SpaceX has made history on a number of occasions, and the Big Falcon Rocket, aka BFR, is said to be the rocket that will make history yet again, by sending folks to Mars. Before that happens, though, that rocket will be flying SpaceX’s first private passenger around the moon.
