- Hummer factory gets second life making electric cars
By Maria Gallucci - Thursday Jun 22, 2017
A U.S. auto plant that once made giant gas-guzzlers will now make cars that don't need gas at all.
AM General, which previously built the Hummer H2, sold its factory in South Bend, Indiana to the electric carmaker SF Motors, both firms announced Thursday.
SF Motors will pay $110 million to produce "intelligent electric vehicles," according to publicly available filings. It will spend another $30 million to upgrade the 700,000-square-foot commercial assembly plant.
The company didn't elaborate further on its plans for the factory, such as how many cars it will produce annually or what types of smart driving or electric-powertrain technologies they'll use. But executives said the arrangement will preserve about 430 U.S. auto worker jobs that were at risk of disappearing. Read more...More about Science, China, Tesla, Climate Change, and Automobiles

- Pour one out for Firefly, Google's quirky little self-driving car
By Brett Williams - Tuesday Jun 13, 2017
Sad news, quirky car enthusiasts: Waymo is taking its fleet of tiny self-driving vehicles off the roads.
The autonomous car company announced it will retire the Firefly, the round-topped two-seater that served as the most obvious visual marker of Google's self-driving car efforts long before the Waymo brand was on the scene. The prototype was introduced to the public back in 2014, when it offered awe-struck Californians a first-hand look at the future of autonomous transportation.
The Firefly, with its one-of-a-kind steering wheel and pedal-free design, was instrumental in the development of Google's self-driving tech, logging millions of test miles rolling along at 25 mph. Read more...More about Google, Autonomous Vehicles, Self Driving Cars, Firefly, and Waymo
- The latest Tesla challenger approaches the starting line, and it looks kinda sketchy
By Brett Williams - Monday Jun 12, 2017
There will soon be a new player in the electric car space, with a big name backing it — but the company has a lot to prove before it can legitimately threaten Tesla.
Renowned auto designer Henrik Fisker just released the first full-body images of his EMotion autonomous electric car, along with some new spec details, giving the world its first IRL look at the latest challenger to Tesla's reign as the top all-electric luxury vehicle on the market.
EMotion, which was first announced last year by Fisker's eponymous company, boasts some impressive specs and a sleek design that's sure to turn heads. The pre-release materials claim the car will be the "most advanced" electric vehicle ever made, with a proprietary lithium-ion battery that can charge for 100 miles' worth of juice in just nine minutes and provide a massive 400-mile-plus range at full power. That's at least 65 more miles than Tesla's top-level Model S 100D sedan, if you're keeping track. Read more...More about Tesla, Electric Vehicles, Fisker, Tech, and Energy
- What This Dutch Entrepreneur Learned By Launching A Washing-Machine Startup In India
By Coen Vermeer - Wednesday Jun 14, 2017
It all started with a TED Talk.
I was still a student in the Netherlands when I watched a TED Talk that changed my career–and it was about washing machines. In it, the Swedish statistician Hans Rosling argues that the washing machine was one of the most revolutionary technological inventions of the modern age, having freed millions of homebound women from hours of manual labor. I was inspired–and had a hunch I could improve on the appliance’s social impact even further.
