5 Bold New Automotive Technologies

A board meeting for 2020 Kia Sportage vs 2020 Chevy Blazer with ideas such as 3D car printing, community car building and VR driving
One thing I find interesting about the auto industry is the way in which it draws inspiration from other industries and businesses to innovate for itself. For example, recently, Nissan will start testing a vehicle subscription service in Texas, where you pay a monthly fee, and you can drive different vehicles every day.

E-water bikes are riding towards an angry man in a boat, which may be an issue in live auto news.
While we might be stretching the definition of live auto news to include this particular story, the way we figure it, “if it’s good enough for Motor Trend, it’s good enough for The Lemon.” Should we set our standards higher? Maybe. Are we going to? Probably not. Anyhoo, let’s talk about the New Zealand-based company Manta5, a company that exploded...

Lovers of the psychological horror film genre are likely to be familiar with the Japanese film franchise Ju-On. Translated roughly to 'curse grudge', the 1998 film revolved around a cursed home whose phantoms would torment subsequent residents. It would spawn a series of sequels, off-shoot media and a widely successful Americanized version of the franchise. That said, it all...

Sarah McLachlan is shown from a SPCA ad to 'ruin your day' and may be doing more ads to help buyers choose between a 2020 GMC Terrain vs 2020 Toyota RAV4.
If nothing else, the next few years are shaping up to be a full-scale shootout between competing crossover and SUV offerings.

In terms of overall sales, Ford trucks sit head and shoulders above the offerings of (pretty much) every other automaker out there. As of Q3 of 2019, the F-Series was reported to have moved 214,176 units. RAM (which had managed to beat out sales of the Chevy Silverado for most of the year) came in second but did so...

This may not come as much of a surprise, but the evidence to suggest that Elon Musk is a servant of the Decepticons has been adding up for some time now. With the recent reveal of the “Cybertruck,” the evidence became truly overwhelming as he stood on stage in front of a villainous robot in disguise and presented it...
