Hummer is Back

No kidding, Hummer is back–or at least the name is. Read on…

When General Motors dropped the Hummer brand from its lineup at the end of 2010, few could have imagined the nameplate would ever make a comeback. Hummer was so closely associated with excessive consumption and short-sighted corporate management that the moniker would seem forever doomed to the ashcan of automotive history.

2020 Volkswagen ID Space Vizzion Concept

Los Angeles Auto ShowJoining the fleet of new electric vehicles being shown at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show is a concept from Volkswagen — with a twist … actually, more than one.

Called the ID Space Vizzion (not a typo), it’s the seventh concept to be built off Volkswagen’s MEB platform, which hosts the company’s upcoming electric vehicles. But unlike the usual range-efficient electric cars or more practical electric crossovers, the ID Space Vizzion is an electric station wagon.

Auto Show. It’s remarkable enough that this genre-smashing new vehicle is Ford’s first purpose-built, regular-production, pure-electric vehicle (with no equivalent gasoline-engine version). What’s almost as noteworthy is that Ford has elected to use the name of its beloved pony car, and make this new EV part of the Mustang “family.”
