    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Hydrogen has failed. It takes more energy to make than just storing the electricity in the base-ev battery (not even taking into account transport or pressurization), it's highly explosive, it's hard to contain, and it comes from either pure drinking water (which is becoming more scarce) or from...

    Toyota and Suzuki Announce Electric Car Partnership

    Lol can always depend on you to spread lies. No one was talking about EVs until EV1 which was the first major release of an EV for nearly 100 years. At that point battery technology wasn't there. Guess what? After a few doubling times, price per mile per battery size have gotten to the point...

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

    Max speed and acceleration are two different things. EVs accelerate very fast. If you're going 75 there's still plenty of speed-range to accelerate in your case

    Philadelphia Passes Ban on Cashless Stores; Amazon Go Plans Said to Be in Jeopardy

    Which is why banks have fraud units. It's not hard for an AI to determine this kind of behavior. Have in the law that it's a punishable offense. Problem solved either through fine or, in the case of the really poor and dumb, jail

    Hint: Charge at night at home and while you're on your long drives you use super chargers. No needs for anything more than a level 2 - 240v/40amp - in your garage

    Volvo to Impose 112 MPH Speed Limit on All New Cars from 2020

Money gets deposited and debit card can be used. No money...

    Tesla Is Unveiling Its All-Electric Crossover, the Model Y, on March 14

    If I hadn't already bought a 3 I'd put my money down. Then again the resale of 3s is very high so I may just put some money down and decide when it's time to order

    Singaporean Retailer Lists Purported Ryzen 3000 Pricing

    As long as the motherboard has an AM4 slot it'll support any 3rd generation ryzen. I may stick with my B350 motherboard (1st generation AM4 mortherboard) as it has everything i need still. Just make sure to upgrade the bios prior to installing a newer chip as it probably won't boot otherwise.
