This morning, I had to double-check whether the InsideEVs CMS was working properly. That’s because when I went to edit a story about the new electric 2025 Ford Capri, I was convinced that I was looking at a Polestar 2 instead.  Evidently, our CMS is working just fine today; nothing was wrong with the images we were trying to publish. And the Capri actually looks very good! I’m especially a fan of that very striking orange color that Ford chose for so many of the initial publicity photos. It’s just that, yes, the damn thing does look like a Polestar…

The latest sign of that is Hurricane Beryl, a Category 5 hurricane. In fact, as the title notes, this is the earliest Category 5 hurricane from the Atlantic ever recorded. And that’s not the only record Hurricane Beryl is breaking. The link between global heating (aka global warming, but that sounds too pleasant) and stronger hurricanes comes from the fact that warmer water in the ocean leads to bigger storms. We’ve been experiencing…

The Polestar 4’s driving impression embargo is officially up, and generally, most are digging into what the rear windowless four-door crossover is offering. It’s chic, sharp to drive, and relatively reasonably priced. Of course, the lack of a rear window isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (it certainly wasn’t mine). Still, the Polestar’s strong execution shows off that its Geely SEA-based roots are a strong base for future development of any future Geely, Zeekr, Polestar, Volvo, Lotus, or any manufacturer or brand that uses the platform. Still, while driving Polestar 4 in Spain, I couldn’t help but wonder: was this truly…

On November 5, 2024, voters will head to the polls to choose the 47th President of the United States. To describe this election as unprecedented perhaps sells it short. In no other election in the past century have the stakes been so high for the automotive industry—and on a higher plane, for climate science and for democracy itself. With the two major-party candidates set to square off in a debate, it’s time to examine their past, present, and future—and their qualifications to become our next leader. Here’s where all of the candidates stand on the issues above—first, the major-party candidates,…

When it came time for my wife to get a new car, there were two things that were a must — it had to be compact, and it had to be electric. She doesn’t like driving big cars and doesn’t like using gas. That said, she had her pick of any electric car on the market. My wife is about as Type-A as you can imagine. She’s sensible, practical, measured, understated. As far as I was concerned, the choice was…

If you’re an auto industry executive in 2024, there are three ways to do your job: actively fight against any sort of global electrified transition, bury your head in the sand and aim to retire fast enough for it to be someone else’s problem, or actively face these challenges head-on. I give credit to Ford CEO Jim Farley for taking the third path.  Ford hasn’t always gotten the EV transformation right under Farley’s watch. It’s had many of the same stumbles as any other established automaker or even startup out there. Software presents endless headaches, production costs are high, the…
