    BMW i3 electric car will sell for $42K in the US: Watch out Ford and Nissan

    Have it your way: 124 miles in power saving mode, or 0-60 in 7 seconds in bat-out-of-hell sports car mode. $42k might be a lot, but this is a BMW -- and this particular BMW is the first mass production vehicle with a carbon fiber body, which rests atop an aluminum chassis, giving it a weight 500 pounds less than other EVs.

    The 2014 Equus Bass 770 is one of the first ground-up boutique muscle cars to come out of Detroit since the automotive bailout in 2009.

    BMW Uses Frickin’ Lasers for High Beams That Don’t Blind

    Conventional wisdom and legally-required safety labels have trained us to understand that we shouldn’t look directly at laser lights, lest we become blinded by their eye-searing output. That’s still almost universally true, except when it comes to BMW’s laser-powered headlight concept. These lasers were designed to prevent blindness—specifically when it comes to oncoming drivers and high-beams...

    End of the car age: how cities are outgrowing the automobile

    Gilles Vesco calls it the “new mobility”. It’s a vision of cities in which residents no longer rely on their cars but on public transport, shared cars and bikes and, above all, on real-time data on their smartphones. He anticipates a revolution which will transform not just transport but the cities themselves. “The goal is to rebalance the public space and create a city for people,” he says. “There will be less pollution, less noise, less stress; it will be a more walkable city.”

    Bentley Bentayga’s Mulliner Tourbillon Clock Is a Near-$170,000 Option

    We had a chance to catch up with Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer at the 2015 Frankfurt show, and he was in a very good mood, for good reason. He had just unveiled the Bentley Bentayga, a vehicle that has been billed as the most powerful, luxurious, and fastest (its 187 mph top speed barely nips the highest spec Porsche Cayenne) SUV in the world. “Luxury doesn’t have any limits,” Durheimer proclaimed, “We are defining the segment.”

    The EPA shot itself in the foot by opposing rules that could've exposed VW

    It was the cheat heard round the world: last week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) accused Volkswagen of gaming emissions testing. The German automaker programmed millions of cars — sold worldwide — to release fewer emissions during the testing procedure, while projectile vomiting pollutants at up to 40 times the legal limit when the cars were on the road.

    GM Has ‘Aggressive’ Plans for Self-Driving Cars

    General Motors is quietly developing autonomous vehicle technology and plans to have a fleet of self-driving Chevrolet Volts roaming the campus of its technical center in suburban Detroit next year. The company has been relatively quiet about the technology, which companies like Google, Tesla Motors, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi have championed with big promises and impressive demonstrations. But General Motors is no stranger to autonomous tech...

    The Secret to Smarter Cars Is Computer Gaming Tech

    Driverless cars, which take passengers from A to B with minimal human input, are already hitting American roads. A variety of automakers and technology firms are experimenting with driverless technology, ranging from entirely driver-free vehicles to driver-assist functions like automatic lane following. What makes much of this possible is an array of sensors and cameras, which absorb data about the environment around them.

    Honda's New Hydrogen-Powered Vehicle Feels More Like A Real Car

    The most notable thing about Honda Motor new hydrogen-powered FCV, to be unveiled Wednesday at the Tokyo Motor Show, is not the silent burst of acceleration it provides when your foot touches the pedal, or the fact that it emits nothing but water vapor from the tailpipe. It’s not even that the FCV can go more than 400 miles between three-minute hydrogen fillings - assuming you have access to a hydrogen station.

    Why Tesla’s Autopilot and Google’s car are entirely different animals

    In the buzz over the Tesla autopilot update, a lot of commentary has appeared comparing this Autopilot with Google’s car effort and other efforts and what I would call a “real” robocar — one that can operate unmanned or with a passenger who is not paying attention to the road. We’ve seen claims that “Tesla has beaten Google to the punch,” but while the Tesla release is a worthwhile step forward, the two should not be confused as all that similar.

    EPA Says Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen SUVs Cheated On Emissions Tests

    The EPA says Volkswagen cheated on emissions tests on more diesel cars than previously believed. The Environmental Protection Agency issued a second notice of violation (NOV) of the Clean Air Act to the automaker, covering about 10,000 model year 2014 diesel cars sold in the U.S. In addition, the notice covers an unknown volume of 2016 vehicles. The cars all have 3.0-liter engines. Here’s more from the agency...

    Mysterious billion-dollar car company is taking on Tesla

    No one knows who’s running it, but a mysterious electric car company is building a billion-dollar manufacturing plant and poaching the best minds in the auto world. The company is called Faraday Future, and it began operating out of an old Nissan research facility in California sometime last year. The name Faraday comes from the English scientist Michael Faraday, who contributed massively to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.

    VW engineers have admitted manipulating CO2 emissions data-paper

    Several Volkswagen engineers have admitted manipulating carbon dioxide emissions data, saying the ambitious goals set by former Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn were difficult to achieve, Bild am Sonntag reported. The paper said VW engineers tampered with tyre pressure and mixed diesel with their motor oil to make them use less fuel, a deception that began in 2013 and carried on until the spring of this year.

    Tesla Now Faces a Billionaire-Backed Competitor Staffed by Its Former Engineers

    Is there room enough for both Tesla Motors and Faraday Future in our electric-car, uh, future? A Chinese billionaire is backing what hopes to be a rival to Elon Musk's enterprise. The 18-month-old company, based out of Southern California, aims to roll out its first long-range, premium model, comparable to Tesla's Model S, by 2017. The engineer who oversaw the chassis design of the Model S, Nick Sampson, is now Faraday's research-and-development chief.

    You probably shouldn’t drive a $1.6 million car around NYC, but we did

    Late last month, National Geographic Channel and Uber teamed up to promote a new series on scientific breakthroughs—called, appropriately enough, Breakthrough—and they chose to do it with a fleet of alternative energy vehicles on the streets of Manhattan. Obviously we've got a healthy interest in forward-looking cars here at Ars, so it seemed like a good idea to hop on a train to check out what all the fuss was about.
