A lot has happened since June when Lordstown Motors announced their Endurance–the EV Truck. This article reminds of the grand vision of Lordstown motors.
“In a dramatic turn, one of the big questions left unanswered at the launch of the Endurance — namely, where the money to build it would come from — has been substantially addressed. In early August, Lordstown announced a merger with a “special purpose acquisitions company” called DiamondPeak Holdings. The merger will let Lordstown be publicly listed on the NASDAQ and generate upwards of $675 million of new investment to nudge the Endurance toward production. The deal should be finalized by the fourth quarter of this year, potentially setting Lordstown’s assembly line in motion — and starting to fill a claimed $1.4 billion in orders — in the second half of 2021.”
Unlike other rear engine Volkswagens, which evolved constantly over time but never saw the introduction of all-new models, the Transporter not only evolved, but was completely revised periodically with variations retrospectively referred to as versions “T1” to “T5” (a nomenclature only invented after the introduction of the front-drive T4 which replaced the T25). However, only generations T1 to T3 (or T25 as it is still called in Ireland and Great Britain) can be seen as directly related to the Beetle (see below for details).
The Type 2, along with the 1947 Citroën H Van, are among the first ‘forward control’ vans in which the driver was placed above the front roadwheels. They started a trend in Europe
An ambulance model was added in December 1951 which re-positioned the fuel tank in front of the transaxle, put the spare tire behind the front seat, and added a “tailgate“-style rear door. These features became standard on the Type 2 from 1955 to 1967. 11,805 Type 2s were built in the 1951 model year
Finally some news we can sink out teeth into! This week has been on fire in the car industry.
Now Ford unveils their 2021 Bronco. This is bigger news than a normal unveiling because the ever popular Bronco hasn’t been around since… 1997
Naturally their are a few hiccups along the way. It seems that a tire option available on your new Bronco is the Goodyear Wrangler. As Wrangler happens to also be the name of the Bronco’s competition, Jeep Wrangler, it’s not a great thing to have labeled on the side of your new Bronco.
This one falls short of a true controversy in our book though. There is an easy answer–turn the tires around? That honestly seems to be what they’re doing.
Here’s a few nice pictures and videos to amuse you.
There are many questions one could ask about the Avatar-inspired concept car that Mercedes-Benz unveiled Monday night at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Why did the company think this was the best way to highlight its sustainability goals? How much of the ideas and technology in the car will ever translate to the road? And why Avatar?
