The Cybertruck Is Weird. So Was Elon Musk’s Cybertruck Launch.

The early reviews of the Cybertruck are in, and Elon Musk was wrong if he thought his powerful influencer army would give Tesla a pass on missing the mark. He had promised nothing less than the year’s “biggest product launch” for the electric-vehicle company’s “best product ever.”Copyright ©2023 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

The Urban could be the Toyota EV we’ve been waiting for

Toyota could be finally ready to take electrification a little more seriously. The Japanese automaker has been extremely slow to manufacture electric cars — but it recently took the wraps off of the new Toyota Urban, which will be Toyota’s attempt at a low-cost, mass-produced EV.

Women Buy More Cars, So Why Are the Designs So Macho?

Building design elements into cars that make sense for dogs and kids and groceries isn’t sexist, or buying into a stereotype—it’s a nod to the invisible labor women do every day, regardless of whether they work full-time, stay home, or something in between. And, incidentally, plenty of men do that labor, too, and might appreciate a small detail that makes dealing with a car seat or traveling with a golden retriever easier.Scotty Reiss, founder of the site A Girls Guide To Cars, spends her time helping women navigate the…

Fiat certainly thought the timing wasn’t right for that original 500e, but the timing of the new version, which is scheduled to arrive in early 2024, seems impeccable. The first Fiat 500e was sold only in California and Oregon, and was built purely to satisfy California’s zero-emission vehicle mandate. Early EV enthusiasts liked it, thanks to an affordable price and retro styling carried over from a concurrent gasoline…
