I totally agree. The forecasts of some futurists predicting millions of totally autonomous vehicles on the road in 10 or 15 years requires us to assume their will be fundamental changes in human...

Gen Y represents a huge demographic bulge and now is well into car-buying age. Aren't they going push new-vehicle sales going foward? They don't all live in cities and young...

In the current environment of low fuel prices, eliminating consumer incentives and perks such as access to carpool lanes would be a death sentence for mainstream EVs and PHEVs.

All that...

I'm certainly not suggesting CAFE regulations are stupid. My opinion on this evolved greatly when I examined the new regs five years ago. They were carefully thought out. And by the way, I own a...

Hugo, the issue here is that automakers are providing affordable products (and sometimes almost giving them away) that address climate change but consumers are not buying them. If every member of...

Steve,

Tesla defiinitely has a great brand, leading technology and terrific design, but I see numerous problems as it seeks to increase production tenfold by 2020:
1) Tesla may have...

You make some good points Stephen, but a lot of EV buyers, especially those that are paying over sticker for luxury plug-ins such as the i8 and Panamara, just want a cool car with HOV lane and...

Gary Witzenburg and all the WardsAuto 10 Best Engines judges have driven the Volt EREV many times. It made our list in 2011 when it debuted. One of the WardsAuto judges owns a Volt. Key difference...

I agree it is possible, but the lower profit margins, long product cycles and state and federal oversight do not suit Apple's business model. Tesla is two years behind on the introduction of its...

As I mentioned, getting involved in vehicle electronics, displays and the overall human-machine interface, like the embedded video depicts, make sense for Apple. Manufacturing products that have...

Ideally, Apple will collaborate with automakers and suppliers to create interiors and human-machine interfaces like those depicted in the video. That's a great fit, but not big enough a deal to...

Better to have people staring at their phones in autonomous cars than to have them staring at their phones while driving, like they do now.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments. I've been meaning to revisit this story.
After having spoken with a number of very smart, meticulous people, I believe a slight revision may be in order...

Mini's expansion into the compact CUV market with the Countryman has been very successful, but you are right, you can only grow the brand so far without losing brand identity.

They also have a sign on the fuel filler door that says "Premium fuel only."

So answergrape, what was your favorite/most memorable 8-track tape? Mine was "Bridge of Sighs" by Robin Trower. I only remember it because it was the only music we had on a non-stop 20-hour run...

I think the long ownership cycle is why we will see multiple systems for a long time. Most cars have to serve a pretty wide demographic.

Wireless Bluetooth connectivity allows you to stream music from your phone.

Sound quality probably is one reason why you still find CD players on some high-end cars like the '15 Mercedes C-Class.

One of the advantages of cam-in-block is the Corvette would not look like a Corvette anymore if the design had to accommodate a much taller overhead-cam V-8.

As we mention in the profile of the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, most disruptive technologies are not introduced with infrastructures in place. The electric light bulb and cell phone are two...

The reason many Americans still do not believe the bailouts were necessary is because bailout opponents promote the fantasy that privately funded alternatives were available. They were not....

I'm not sure what Americans your poll surveyed, Amber, but they were not people who buy new cars. November U.S. sales were the highest since 2001, led by big sales gains by both GM and Chrysler....

Thanks for the clip. I assumed everyone knew the "11" scene.

Is it available with an infotainment system? If so, does the volume knob go to 11?

The state of California absolutely has put a gun to the head of manufacturers. The zero-emissoin vehicle mandate requires automakers to sell EVs whether consumers want them or not.
