On Monday, Apple and Volvo made waves in the automotive world by announcing CarPlay, which is effectively iOS for your car’s touchscreen. It will be interesting to see how owners respond to this new system, and if it will proliferate to other automakers. But in the meantime, it got us thinking, which automaker is the most like Apple? It’s not as easy as you think.
This week, Tesla announced that it had plans to build a $5 billion, 500 to 1,000 acre, state of the art “Gigafactory” in one of four possible states, that could account for as many as 6,500 jobs. Tesla estimates that in just six years, it could be building 500,000 cars a year. So which of these four states makes the most sense?
There’s one thing that technology powerhouse Apple has yet to put on its expanding resume — a car. The idea of an Apple iCar has been teased in the past, but not until recently have we seen any movement. And now it may lead to production.
Will the self-driving car be your office of the future? One company envisions a world where our autonomous cars will be our mobile places of work, and has developed a concept car that might be a glimpse into your office of the future.
When an electric car goes up in flames, naysayers take notice. But when said electric car goes up in flames for the fourth time in only a few short months, well, the whole world is watching now. Tesla and its Model S are back in the news for another fire in the garage of one Toronto owners home.
As we enter a time where alternative fuel vehicles are more commonplace, one thing that has not been addressed is potential resale value. This has been one of the big questions, as buyers might be reluctant to take on an already-used battery system. According to one study though, that will not be a problem for the Tesla Model S, which has used prices 20% over new MSRP.
If there’s one thing Steve Saleen knows how to do, it’s Mustangs. But Steve and the whole Saleen brand are much, much more than that — and they’re ready to show the world what they can really do.
Enter: Saleen Tesla Model S. And no, that’s not a typo.
Is there anything the Tesla Model S can’t do? Apparently not. While one Tesla made its way across the country on free energy this past week, another one was laying down some rubber against a new Corvette Stingray. And laying it down good.
Near the end of last year, some important business person on some big TV channel pitched the idea of Tesla selling itself off to a bigger manufacturer in 2014. The internet went bonkers, and the Tesla faithful were up in arms. But is it really all that ridiculous for Tesla to be sold to a larger automaker? We think not, and we’ll tell you why.
Google just released its list of the top searches of 2013 and revealed some interesting results. The list has some of the top selling brands of this year, but the top three are brands that sell in fall lower volume. The high-volume brands are no brainers, but we’ll try to shed some light on why you were searching for cars that you were least likely to buy. We’ll also look at the most-searched single car models, as determined by digging into each brand’s search data a little more. Here’s what we came up with:
