Electric cars key to driving change in UK’s energy supply industry – The Guardian

You drive home and plug in your electric car, telling an app how many miles you need the next day. As you eat dinner, relax and sleep, your energy supplier takes control of your battery, using it to buy power when it’s cheap, selling it back later when high demand pushes prices up. The company offers national and local power grids services from your battery, making more money that it…

Volkswagen’s $14.7 billion settlement can fund America’s switch to electric vehicles – The Hill

By cheating on their emissions tests, Volkswagen poisoned our families with dangerous pollution just to pad their own pockets. In fact, it is estimated that the 11 million affected vehicles with installed cheat devices worldwide could be causing as much air pollution as 20 coal-burning power plants every year. In September 2015, Volkswagen admitted to installing software in certain diesel vehicles designed to bypass pollution control systems, resulting in dangerous…

BMW Files For Trademarks on ‘CSL’ Models in US – The Drive

Trademark and patent databases serve, at times, as a vital weak link in the otherwise secretive internal workings of many an automaker. The Drive learned last month of a potential revival of the Toyota Celica via a trademark filing, and now, BMW’s beans have been spilled for them by the World Intellectual Property Organization, which reveals through a database search for the term CSL in the United States that there…

First Drive: 2018 Audi A8 – The Verge – The Verge

Audi claims the new A8, its flagship sedan, is the most technologically advanced car in its class. That’s a big boast for a crowded segment that includes the Tesla Model S, BMW 7-series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Jaguar XJ, the Lexus LS, and up-level versions of the surprisingly competent Cadillac CT6. But from its lights to its camera to its cockpit, it makes a compelling argument for best-in-class tech. The new A8…

Audi’s flagship A8 has an overwhelming amount of tech – Engadget

For instance, the front camera can scan the road ahead and, when it detects a bump, pre-lift the body to better soak it up. Furthermore, if the 360-degree cameras detect an impending side impact, the…

In particular, I recall thinking about and wanting a super fast car. Maybe a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. At lunch my friends and I would argue about the best cars (THE BEST), and what we wouldn’t give to drive them. Today I drive a…
