The Korean car makers (Hyundai and Kia) are actually getting better at building reliable cars that people want.  Reminds me of the Japanese car makers finally figuring out how to build nice cars through during the 80’s. Kia’s latest car the Kia Soul reminds me a bit of the Toyota Scion and has some pretty neat features. ...

The new Toyota Prius (2010) will have a new design, a solar panel roof, and a new display just below the windshield.  The display mimics the button set on the steering wheel and lights up yellow...

The entry-level 2010 Ford Fusion is powered by a brand new 2.5-litre Duratec four-cylinder matched to a fuel-efficient six-speed automatic transmission. It should sell for about $22,000 and is due in the spring.

Looks like Tesla and Aptera finally have some competition… although it seems to trump them both… sorta. 

Toyota announced they are converting their truck manufacturing facility in Mississippi to produce Prius hybrids. The picture above shows what Mississippi tailgate parties may look like going forward.  This doesn’t come as a surprise since truck sales are dying...

Tesla is finally trying to make a more mainstream (still not cheap) car, their latest slated for 2010 is the “model s” which...

Looks like Volkswagen is jumping into the hybrid arena with their “twin drive” car slated to show up around 2010.  The car will us an 85 horsepower electric motor as the primary power and supplement that with a 122 horsepower diesel (yuck) engine. ...
