Meet the Suzuki Air Triser. It’s the fun, versatile, fuel efficient small camper van that really should have become the 2017 VW Microbus!
Originally posted on EVObsession Build Your Dreams, better known as BYD, is the Chinese automaker that is going all-in with plug-in cars. Backed by Warren Buffett and already building its all-electric buses on American soil, BYD may have been born in China, but it has global ambitions. That includes rivaling the battery production of the […]
Phoenix Cars is backed by money from Dubai,PR by Arnold, and is committed to developing a full line of sensible EVs – including a 14 passenger electric bus.
Ray LaHood hasn’t retired just yet- the former transportation secretary has joined Proterra to manufacture an incredibly efficient electric bus for cities.
There’s no nice way to say it: the air pollution in China is bad. The problem is so severe, in fact, that the Chinese government decided to slash number of new cars people can put on the road and has even contemplated instituting the death penalty to curb pollution, with little effect. In a bid […]
Westfalia has just released some pictures of its new-for-2014 Westfalia camper van, and it isn’t a Volkswagen. It’s a diesel-powered Ford Transit van, and you can consider my mind thoroughly exploded.
One of the most promising ideas for extending electric car driving range is to install wireless charging features into city streets. The city of Gumi, South Korea recently launched a pair of electric buses wirelessly charged through the roadway, and if the initial tests go well, this could pave the way.
Frank “Rinspeed” Rinderknecht has had some cool ideas over the years. This latest idea of his is called the microMAX, and it is exactly the kind of thing you would expect an aging, out-of-touch grandfather who was cool 30 years ago to be utterly convinced his grandkids will think is awesome. Billed as “the future […]

It wasn’t all that long ago that I was a poor college student hard hit for cash. The thought never occurred to me that maybe I could save a few buck by walking or biking to class instead of storming around campus in my 1995 Pontiac Trans Am. Man, I miss that car. Today, college students are more keen on their transportation options, and this handy-dandy infographic breaks down the most popular options.
I think it is safe to assert that, at least here in America, public transportation gets a bad rap. But it doesn’t have to be that way, especially since more and more Americans are demanding better public transit services.
Too bad we don’t have advertisements like this next video from Denmark, ominously titled “The Bus.” Does this video make mass transit look cool or what?
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) will lose $161 million this year, and $100 million next year. As a result, subway, train, and bus fares are increasing, along with a new and unpopular state-wide proposal to add a 1-cent-per vehicle-miles-traveled in an effort to bail out the MBTA. The city of Boston Massachusetts and the […]
A hundred years ago, most major cities relied on trains and electric trolleys to move most of their citizenry around. These days cars and trucks rule the roads of America, although an old idea might soon find a modern application. I am talking about overhead trolley power lines electrifying hybrid trucks, allowing for long journeys […]
