    SKY News ^ | September 25, 2022
    The cost of charging an electric car using public charge points on a pay-as-you-go basis has risen by 42% in just four months, according to the RAC. The motoring group said the average price for using the chargers has increased by 18.75p per kilowatt hour (kWh) since May, reaching 63.29p per kWh. The latest figures show a driver exclusively using rapid or ultra-rapid public chargers pays around 18p per mile for electricity, compared with roughly 19p per mile for petrol and 21p per mile for diesel. The rise has been blamed on the soaring wholesale costs of gas and electricity....

    C hrysler's Plymouth division had sand kicked in its face. Twice. First, when its all-new-fastback Barracuda's debut was completely eclipsed by the Ford Mustang, despite beating it to market by a couple weeks. Then, after redesigning the Barracuda for 1967 with dedicated sheetmetal that totally obliterated any traces of its Valiant origins, and adding a coupe and convertible, Plymouth's entry was again overshadowed, this time by the release of Chevy's first-ever Camaro. Chrysler execs were no doubt keenly aware that the still-new personal-coupe market didn't just generate sales, it garnered lots of attention for the makers of the category's hero...
  • LOL: Test of Brand New EV Ends in Failure after Just 70 Miles

    Want to get an electric car? Well, if you want to drive that upgraded golf cart more than a few miles to work and back, you might need to think again, particularly if you’re thinking you might want to drive it at typical highway speeds. Such is what Car and Driver found in its hilarious review of the new, electric Mazda MX-30. And that’s not some old EV that should be resigned to the scrap heap at this point…it’s the 2022 model of the car. As background, the MX-30 is designed to be an EV for the average American worker...

    PARIS — Marat Gabidullin's face is lined from years of exposure to the elements, and his hair is thinning. But at 56, he has the trim physique and muscular arms of a man 30 years younger. He wears a chunky ring bearing the image of a skull.The skull is the symbol of the Wagner Group — a private Russian mercenary force believed to be financed by an oligarch with close ties to President Vladimir Putin. The group is fighting alongside the Russian army in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region. And it's widely believed that at least some of the "little green...
  • Dem Rep. Allred: ‘How We’ve Approached Car Safety’ Is ‘Right Model’ for Guns

    During an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday, Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX) stated that the appropriate model to look at with gun regulations is “how we’ve approached car safety over the years, to progressively find ways to make cars more safe on the road, whether that’s seat belts or speed limits, or moving forward with more safe technology in the vehicles themselves.” And that “Nobody’s talking about taking away your cars. They are saying though, that you can’t drive an F1 around, you can’t go certain speeds, you can’t do certain things because it’s dangerous.”

    A prolific car thief was sentenced to ten years in prison and had his driver's license revoked for life after he stole and stripped more than 100 vehicles with the help of his DMV worker girlfriend. Israel Fonseca, 39, would steal the cars, gut them for parts - taking everything from GPS systems to guns stored in glove compartments - and abandon them throughout the streets of Oregon's Multnomah, Clackamas, Marion and Clark counties. He targeted vehicles in movie theatre parking lots, outside malls or parked by the Moda Center sports arena in Portland. Owners would return to the parking...

    It looks like we've hit peak Lincoln Continental for the 21st century with the Coach Door Edition. At least, 80 people will be enjoying the best that Lincoln (and Cabot Coach Builders) can offer. We figured now was a perfect time to look back at the original Continental with suicide doors, now that there's a return to form. Make sure to scroll through the barrage of historical Continental photos Lincoln provided to us from its archive above.

    Connecticut’s Office of Inspector General announced on Wednesday that a white state trooper was charged with manslaughter after he fatally shot a 19-year-old Black man after a car chase in 2020. After an “extended pursuit” on Jan. 15, 2020, the trooper, Brian North, stopped a stolen vehicle and fatally shot Mubarak Soulemane seven times through the car window. Soulemane, who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 14, was holding a knife when he was killed, according to a report from Inspector General Robert Devlin.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) blasted President Joe Biden for being out of touch on Sunday following reports of the president drafting an executive order to invoke the Defense Production Act to help produce material for electric car batteries. “After begging for oil from dictators, Biden is now using emergency war powers to produce batteries for the 1% that drive electric cars. Most Americans suffering due to high gas prices don’t have the luxury of spending $50k+ on an electric car,” DeSantis said, making the demand to “unleash American energy today!”:

    BELLEVUE, Wash. — A Bellevue family’s catalytic converter was stolen from their Prius and it was caught on surveillance video. The family told KIRO 7 that they are grateful they did not go to the door last week Monday after hearing a loud noise outside. Just before 5 a.m., two people showed up at the Bellevue home. While one man got underneath the car, the other stood guard with a gun pointed at the home. Police said they are investigating. “I hate to say that a thief is smart but they know what vehicles to target,” said Bryan Davis, a...

    A clueless Canadian woman appeared to snap a selfie while standing on top of her car — as it sank in a river of ice — over the weekend. Photos taken from the shore of the Rideau River in Ottawa show the unidentified woman in a red winter coat apparently nonchalantly snap a quick selfie of herself while standing on the back window of the yellow vehicle that is mostly submerged in the water and slowly sinking around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

During her visit, she asked if she could plug in one of the electric cars to see how it worked. After plugging it in, she commented on the difference between an electric charger and a gas pump. “There’s no sound or fume,” she said, standing by the car holding the plug into...

Kathleen Casillo, 53, who appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday, has claimed protesters surrounded her car and called her a “white privilege bitch” and started banging on the vehicle.
