Honda and GM team on two new EVs: Honda design, GM platform

Honda and GM will collaborate on two new EVs, with the Honda-badged electric vehicles using GM's new Ultium batteries. The as-yet unnamed cars will be manufactured in North America at GM plants, and be based on the same global EV platform that General Motors intends to use for electrified vehicles for its own Chevrolet, Cadillac, and other brands.

Honda Jazz sticks with physical controls for some functions

Honda Jazz sticks with physical controls for some functions

One of the problems that many people have with modern automobiles is that automakers continue to try and do away with all manual, dial controls in favor of touchscreen controls. Many drivers don't care for touchscreen controls that require you to take your eyes off the road to control things like the temperature inside the car.

2021 Honda Insight enters the fray with new safety tech

2021 Honda Insight enters the fray with new safety tech

The good thing about the 2021 Honda Insight is its conventional three-box sedan body style. From any angle, the Insight is pretty much a normal family sedan, and that’s a good thing if you like staying under the radar. Honda is releasing the 2021 Insight virtually unchanged from last year’s model, but the EX and Touring trim are now equipped with standard blind spot information with cross-traffic monitor.

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid First Drive: Strategically Green

2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid First Drive: Strategically Green

You'd be forgiven for not realizing the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid was, well, a hybrid, and that's by design. Side by side with the gas-only crossover, this freshly electrified version bears all the hallmarks of simply being a fancier trim. The Honda badge is now blue-edged, while the rear bumper is different and hides the tailpipe; Touring trim splashes on some extra chrome, too. It all begs the question: how loud does your hybrid really need to be?

Honda just dumped its only all-electric car in the US

Honda is axing its only all-electric car in the US, phasing out the Clarity EV after buyers failed to be enchanted by its mediocre range. Announced back in 2017, the Clarity EV is one of a trio of green models by Honda, alongside the Clarity Fuel Cell that runs on hydrogen, and the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, which pairs an electric drivetrain with a gas engine for boosted range.

GM’s Cruise Origin is not like other autonomous cars

GM’s Cruise Origin is not like other autonomous cars

Rarely has "form follows function" been so fitting as with the Cruise Origin, the autonomous taxi pod that the GM and Honda-backed transportation company revealed this week. It's a far cry from most of the self-driving concepts we've seen before, swoopingly futuristic vehicles fit for a sci-fi movie. That's not from a lack of design attention, however: indeed, everything about the Origin is painstakingly intentional.

This is Cruise Origin – a self-driving EV to kill Uber, Lyft and car ownership altogether

This is Cruise Origin – a self-driving EV to kill Uber, Lyft and car ownership altogether

Cruise doesn't want to sell you an autonomous car, just rent you a seat in one, and the Cruise Origin is the self-driving electric vehicle it believes will coax drivers out from behind the steering wheel. Handiwork of Cruise, General Motors, and Honda, the Origin is no hopeful concept, the trio insists, but an actual production vehicle that will soon be plying the roads.

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

Honda HRR Gas Lawn Mower Review: Winter wishes for summer reliability

I began writing this review when I started to use a Honda HRR push mower a couple of seasons ago. When this review process began, I assumed it'd be like any other. I was used to reviewing things like smartphones and computers - devices that aren't expected to last more than a few years for the average person. But this was to be no average review - this review became about more than just the one machine.
