The Future of Fuel Cell Stations

Tomorrow's World Today Fuel Cell Stations 1

Every eco-warrior hopes to see a future that includes environmentally-friendly vehicles. When you currently think of more sustainable options, what likely comes to mind are electric vehicles, which are able to use electricity to move a vehicle. Another common option is ethanol-powered vehicles, which can be fueled using ethanol made from ‘energy crops’ such as […]

Audi and Green Light Technology

The eternal problem of driving: the red light. While we all know it’s important, there’s nothing more frustrating than hitting a series of stops when you’re running late. Disregarding them is also not advised. If only there was a way you could ensure you’ll hit only green lights, thus drastically cutting down on your commute […]

How Self-Driving Cars are Made

Man in a self-driving car

The wheels turn. The turn signal flashes. Headlights shine and a safe top speed is maintained. Seems like your family out for a leisurely drive on the weekend, right? There’s just one difference- there’s nobody in the driver’s seat. This is what the future will look like…if the streets don’t appear this way to you […]

Flying with Aston Martin

The pinnacle of future technology: the flying car. Many pieces of science fiction feature this staple, and it’s easy to understand why. With it, dealing with traffic would be a thing of the past. Unfortunately, it seems that flying cars are exactly that: fiction. Unless you have the money to afford an Aston Martin. The […]

Daimler and Mercedes Partner to Make First Autonomous Trucks

Traffic with self-driving cars

Gridlock, rush hour, traffic jam…it seems like streets are permanently filled with cars. While options like mass transit and carpool lanes help elevate some of the issues, it’s still a problem plaguing cities of all sizes. One company, Daimler, thinks they may have the solution: autonomous cars. Autonomous, or self-driving, cars are not a new […]

Meet the Megacar: Koenigsegg One:1

We’ve discussed how people have the need for speed in previous posts. In most situations- internet, travel, food, shipping- the belief “faster is better” holds true. And the fastest of the fast, at least when it comes to cars, is the Koenigsegg One:1. First introduced in 2014, the One:1 is the world’s first “megacar.” It […]

Electric Cars: How Production Affects Cost

An electric car charging.

While hybrids are a decently common sight, fully electric cars are less so. Part of it has to do with the price tag (even the cheapest models are close to $25,000). But a larger part is the manufacturing of the cars themselves. In March, BMW announced they wouldn’t be mass-producing electric cars until 2020. Their […]

Volvo and the Death of CO2 Emissions

It’s a feat most can only dream of: going completely carbon neutral. It’s insanely difficult to pull off, as nearly every action we make has some impact on the environment. But it can be done, and on impressively large scales. Lowering your own carbon footprint is commendable, but how about a car manufacturing plant breaking […]

Tesla and the Assembly Line

Now that 2017 is behind us, it’s easy to look back and identify some industry giants of the year. Not just in the fiscal sense, but in impact, innovation, and legacy. It’s hard to find a company that’s been nearly as successful in the latter three than Tesla. Aside from breakthroughs in car production, space […]

The Rise of Workhorse

The Surefly Helicopter

Electric and hybrid cars are still fairly new to consumers, but their presence is already making waves. Companies like Tesla are taking a good chunk of the market and existing brands like Subaru and Toyota have hybrid options for most of their models. But one area that is sorely lacking is electric trucks. Not just […]
