The New 2021 Rivian R1S SUV by Rivian Media

Rivian R1S SUV: This is How the Americans Take on Range Rover SVAutobiography: Get Your Autograph Book Ready, Land Rover!

OPINION ANALYSIS: Rivian Automotive, the once Clandestine now Maverick Electric Pickup Truck Maker added another BEV to its portfolio, a full sized three rower SUV called R1S. I’m so glad they made it nice and boxy and conservative and all BEV. All they need to do now is stretch that battery tray and back seat room, bespoke it out, make it LWB, send it upmarket past Bentley and Rolls, and let it sit next to Rover SVAutobiography, to let their brand take off, and let the doe roll in.
The Now Extinct Chevy Volt by GM Media

Ode to Chevy Volt: the Car that Started as Green Electroshock Therapy Rightfully Ends with Barely a Spark

OPINION ANALYSIS: America’s first plug in hybrid, a segment opening PHEV was put to death recently, the Chevrolet Volt was a cutting edge trailblazing vehicle that bridged the gap between siphoning off gas and waiting for battery technology to improve before pushing on to an all electric car world. So cancelling it seems counterintuitive. It is not. Actually Volt was a great accidental/incidental transition vehicle who’s time came and was way gone.

Cadillac to Discontinue CT6 after 2019, Twin Turbo V8 Still Coming

After announcing earlier this week that the Detroit Hamtramck plant where the Cadillac CT6 is built would be “unallocated” sometime next year, the company has confirmed that the CT6 will be discontinued after 2019, but before it races off into the sunset, the twin turbo V8-powered CT6-V will reach showrooms.
2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Costs $230 More than a Comparable 2018

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has a much lower starting price than the 2018 models due to the removal of several key standard features, but even when you equip the 2019 version with the same basic features as the previous model year, the new, more-powerful Hellcat Challenger does cost a bit less.
The 2020 Rivian R1T All Electric Pickup Truck

The Rivian R1T Suddenly and Impressively Becomes the World’s First All-Electric Pickup Truck. Not Ford. Not Tesla.

Unveil Review: Rivian Automotive, the Michigan based startup that for ten years carefully, but secretly planned to find the right vehicle, at the right time, and at the right moment, to launch an all BEV the world hasn’t seen, seemed to find the right recipe to unveil that vehicle NOW, as they launched something that Tesla had expectations of doing first: to launch the first all electric pickup truck in the world. And Rivian did it. Not Ford. Not Tesla. This is a game changer . . .
Charge Automotive Electric Mustang

The BEV Mustang Ford Should’ve Been Making by Now is Available in a Restomod Classic Version from Startup Charge Automotive

I find it pathetically sad that we are now in year 6 of the electric car revolution and Ford has yet to come out with not one of their own non-compliance full mass production BEV car. Not one. Thank God for startups, because the new British based company called Charge Automotive will make you pay just a little dearly, but you can even have a classic Mustang the way Ford would never have given it to you.
The Rivian R1T and R1S

Rivian Teases Us With Yet ANOTHER 3 Second Glimpse from a Second Clip of Their Electric Trucks R1T and R1S Now Days Away From Their Debut

This time Rivian publishes a second teaser video showing their truck wading through 3 feet of water with 3 seconds of footage.

CT6 Hybrid NA Cancellation: Another Electric Cadillac is DOA in USA: Where Does this Put Caddy on the Comeback Track?

SHOCKING!! It seems Cadillac and electricity mix like oil and water. Never mind the gas versions are crap, plagued with electrical problems, they can’t even make reliable ones that partly run on electricity either! While GM’s CEO Mary Barra has a “zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion” ten year plan for GM’s future, Cadillac certainly isn’t helping with the failures they’ve had with each electric they tried to sell. CT6 was strike 3. Here’s why and what they can do about it:

The Mustang Fastback Four-Door Sedan Saloon: A Ford in Your Future Lincoln Could Have Made and Proves Ford Wastes Money

Ford contemplates a four-door fastback Mustang being put into production. This comes just months after a massive passenger car cancellation for the USA market starting next year, particularly cancelling a Lincoln that could’ve helped Ford with this project, that ires Ford’s loyal passenger car customers, Ford investors who must be sick and tired of Ford with their shenanigans by now, and me, frankly, because you really don’t want to piss me off about cars!
