2012 Car and Truck of the Year finalists announced

2012 Car and Truck of the Year finalists announced

This year's nearest to the cup winners of the 2012 Car and Truck of the Year event have been announced, they starting out with the Ford Focus, the Hyundai Elantra, and the Volkswagen Passat on the Car side of the battle. In the Truck category you'll find no less than the Honda CR-V, the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque (which I think should also get the most unnecessarily long name of the year award for all vehicles), and the BMW X3 (which is suitably short in name, of course). These three cars and three trucks were decided upon after much whittling was done across the masses of vehicles eligible for the prize this year.

Chevy announces it will produce the Spark EV in 2013

Chevrolet has announced that it intends to produce the all-electric Spark EV. The spark is a mini car and will be sold in limited quantities in select markets around the country starting in 2013.

San Francisco offers free charging for EVs through 2013

One of the things that electric vehicle owners need to plan for is recharging their vehicles while on the go. The EV has a limited range and if a driver has a full day of errands and other things to take care of finding a charging station is paramount to a day that doesn't involve a tow truck ride home. In many cities, there are EV charging stations in use, but those stations require money to use in many cases. San Francisco has announced that it will be offering free EV charging.

Nokia Windows Phone deal final; Q1 2011 sees sinking smartphone share

Nokia Windows Phone deal final; Q1 2011 sees sinking smartphone share

Nokia has announced its Q1 2011 financial results, along with what the Finnish company is describing as a shift "from developing strategy to executing strategy." The Microsoft Windows Phone partnership is finally inked, and it's about time too: total mobile device sales are down 12-percent from last quarter, while smartphone sales are down 14-percent from last quarter. Still, they're higher than this time last year - up 1-percent and 13-percent respectively - and there are more Symbian devices to come: Nokia says it expects "the transition to Windows Phone as our primary smartphone platform to take about two years."

Researchers create new batteries with crazy fast recharge speed

I have long said that one of the keys to making our gadgets more usable and vehicles that use batteries like EVs and plug-in hybrids more interesting to buyers is not only a battery with a higher capacity for energy storage, but also a battery that can be recharged quickly. That Nissan Leaf might not drive but 50 miles on a charge, but if I can recharge that car in only a few minutes suddenly that range is a lot more livable.
