    Many of the cars are more like enclosed bicycles, and virtually none of them could operate on public roads or highways. But the Shell Eco-Marathon offers some useful lessons for the more than 100 high-school and college teams that compete in it--many of them having little to do with the cars themselves.

    2013 Toyota Prius Plug-in Challenge Raises Funds For Philanthropy

    When it comes to social media marketing, Ford showed the auto world how it's done back in 2010. The company's Fiesta Movement recruited perky, camera-ready cool kids to talk about the Fiesta through blog posts, photos, and videos. The campaign was so successful that 60% of Americans knew about the...

Ford has really tapped into this concept of social media, as we mentioned in our earlier article today about their Scribd.com rebate announcement. However, not all of the social media is just about selling the cars. Okay, okay, I knew I wouldn’t get away with that. Yes, all the social media in some form is trying to create a sense of community and need for those with or looking to own a car in any segment that Ford...

    All-Electric Roadtrip From LA to Detroit? No Problem, Says Tesla

    As we've noted elsewhere, we write a lot about Tesla.

But despite early engineering difficulties...
