Airbnb for those who aren’t familiar has changed the way most Americans, or any nationality, travels. The concept is astonishingly simple – offer attractive lodging options parallel to traditional hotels/B&Bs/hostels and the like and watch supply expand and prices drop. Add in a ranking system which serves to easily identify the great deals from the lousy ones and you now have a new option for lodging when you travel.

So if humans need a place to “store” themselves when they travel, some other items that don’t necessarily breathe or have a heart beat could also fall into a similar category. Take for instance cars. Many car enthusiasts for example would relish the opportunity to invest and have a collector automobile but lack the storage space to keep it. Enter in GaragePointer.com. This novel offering like Airbnb essentially pairs shelter-seeking car owners with garage owners who can spare the space (or better put, will rent it [...]

Way back, I mean way back in 2008, the then new Tesla roadster was reviewed by a prominent auto critic who will remain un-named to protect the integrity of this blog. His summary finding … a science experiment that was barely running which couldn’t survive a day at the Top Gear racetrack. Sounds rather ridiculous now in 2016 but even Mr. Musk has recently admitted that the Roadster project was a complete mess.

Now a 13 year old company, Musk reported that he thought Tesla only had a 10 percent chance of surviving. “We had no idea what we were doing” was a startling admission that Musk revealed weeks ago at an annual shareholder’s meeting. Musk wanted to put in 99 percent of Series A funding in the early days because he didn’t want to lose his friends’ and investors’ money. Chances were so low that the Tesla general felt a tremendous guilt from a [...]

The big difference between diesel and petrol engines is the petrol has what is known as a “spark ignition” whereas the diesel is an internal combustion engine where the ignition of the fuel has been injected into a combustion chamber. Without getting too technical this chamber is then initiated by the high temperatures that the gas achieves when the whole process is greatly compressed.

Since the 70’s the use of diesel engines specifically in the U.S. have been steadily risen. In the larger European Union diesel sales have accounted for 50% of the total sold within countries like France registering an impressive 70%. So while these numbers suggest a real demand, news out of Volvo is hybrids will now replace their entire (yes, their entire) diesel line … even in Europe.

Tough emission standards, especially on the other side of the pond, coupled with competition from high-efficiency gas hybrids is moving Volvo to an alternative [...]

As many of you already know, Waze is awesome, Waze saves us lots of time, and probably most important, Waze is very user-friendly. In fact, it might be the most user-friendly logistical application on the market and that’s saying a lot because there is some stiff competition popping up on the daily.

But now that Waze has literally dominated its industry the revolutionary app has its eyes firmly set on battling Uber and Lyft in the car-sharing arena. The navigation app is spinning out a carpooling service in San Francisco which will be available to 25,000 plus employees at pre-selected companies. Waze Rider will be similar to UberPool, which will allow customers to share an Uber with other nearby customers. However, unlike Uber which places the driver in a “for-hire” position, Waze Rider will occupy their own community-based navigation data to allow real-time connections between drivers with passengers whose destination lies along the same route [...]

 

“Lightweight” is what we’re all looking for, right? Light cuisine, light luggage, light laptops, TVs, cels, you name it. We also want to be lighter, no matter how slim we have gotten thanks to that grind of a diet and swimming. Well cars are no different. Lightweight designs have always been fashionable and desirable and when one speaks of lightweight typically automakers such as Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche leap to mind. One company that doesn’t, for example, would be a GM. Typically lauded for rough and tough quality, lightweight isn’t and hasn’t been in their wheelhouse … til now.

In an attempt to satisfy pending fuel-economy obligations, GM has surfaced as a lightweight leader, especially as it relates to mass-produced models that your typical American can afford. To date, seven production models are rumored to be lighter by roughly 350 pounds compared to their respective predecessors. For example, the Cadillac XT5 is a jaw-dropping [...]

If you have a house you probably have one. You say no house, I counter with an apartment, if you have one of those you also probably have one. No apartment? Do you have a rug, a rug for the love of everything holy! Yes, you have a rug so you have a vacuum cleaner.

No what if I told you the world’s premier maker of vacuum cleaners is entering into the world of electric car manufacturing. You’d say this blog has officially jumped the shark. Well no sharks have been jumped and you’re hearing it here first. Dyson, yes Dyson, the vacuum cleaner company has indeed entered talks to produce an electric car.

All culpability goes to the British government. Dyson has remained silent but the U.K. has released a statement regarding the company’s intentions to build what is called a Hoover Mover. Now, the British government has invested millions into this (taxpayer money [...]

 

Ok, so raise your hand if this is the fifth time you’re reading about flypaper today. We knew it, and actually initially balked at the idea of more flypaper content. But we’re stubborn. And you’ll love it.

Automotive safety technology, designed to keep us safe and sound while traversing the world. It is a relatively well-known fact that U.S. auto accidents kill more Americans than wars have since this great country became a nation. An alarming 14 percent of accidents are pedestrians who basically find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. In response, car-makers have begun to fabricate cars with larger “bulbous” hoods or front ends because these types of designs have indeed helped to save pedestrian lives. But the impact is still far from significant.

Enter Google. And flypaper. So, when a car hits something or something, phase one is the impact, which can cause a lot of damage, and [...]

At this point ridesharing is ever present in most folk’s minds. From its nascent stages to Uber and Lyft, ridesharing has taken off as a viable alternative to traditional transportation. In 2016 GPS navigation devices determine location and desired routes, your smartphone communicates to request a ride, and social networks in turn serve to establish trust and accountability between drivers and passengers.

General Motors’ investment in Lyft and their launch of the car-sharing apparatus, Maven, has sparked interest in other auto makers to jump into the mix. Volkswagen is now on board with a $300 million investment in what is known as Gett. Formally referred to as GetTaxi, it is heavy in Europe but certainly not at the level of Uber or Lyft quite yet. Gett operates in roughly 60 cities around the globe (New York included) and with this new injection of capital has a real potential to compete with Uber and Lyft for [...]

The irony is many American bought automobiles are manufactured down south but subsequently must comply by U.S. standards. Those same plants however just manufacturer cheaper versions and sell them locally. There are global bodies seeking to remedy this giant safety gap not only in Latin America but parts of Asia as well, however like most things this is a political will issue that will only be solved via regulatory bodies.

Recently there has been lots of noise surrounding self-parking technology. Up to now it is mostly used for parallel parking, or similar situations to the traditional parallel parking movement. As you should probably be well aware of, parallel parking requires the automobile to be parked parallel to the curb and most folks need roughly six more feet than that of their car to park.

Self-parking cars, contrary to popular belief, are not completely autonomous. The driver still needs to control and regulate the speed of [...]

Although we cringe at the thought, we all have a greater likelihood of suffering a life-threatening accident behind the wheel or in a car than engaged in almost any other activity we take part in. We take for granted how dangerous the road can be especially considering our safety depends just as much on the ability of the guy next to us to control his car as ours.

Down south in Latin America it has been reported than some automakers are compromising safety for lower sticker prices. Sound frightening? It should be. Here in the U.S. we can be relatively assured that our cars will be equipped with stability control systems, anti-lock brakes, airbag systems, crumple zones or structures capable of diverting direct crash forces away from the automobile’s occupants.

In Mexico and Brazil for example some have posited that the car market down south resembles what ours looked like say 40 years ago. Little [...]
