  • Fisker Atlantic concept unveiling before New York Auto Show, April 2012

    Standing on a New York City street with taxis, buses, and sirens in the background isn't necessarily the best place to shoot a video, as the clip above pretty much proves. But it was the backdrop for our segment on Fisker Automotive--since there were three 2012 Fisker Karma range-extended electric sport sedans parked at the curb--right after that company unveiled its Fisker Atlantic concept last Tuesday night. You can see video of that unveiling here. We stepped outside to film our update segment because inside the Meatpacking District event space, the music was still pouring out and the...

  • Infiniti LE Concept at New York Auto Show, April 2012
    Infiniti LE Concept Electric Sedan: New York Auto Show Video

    The Infiniti LE Concept was one of the few pure concept cars at last week's New York Auto Show media days, a design study that wasn't a production model but just an indication of how a future car might evolve. In reality, though, Infiniti hasn't bothered to disguise the fact that the LE Concept is...

    Infiniti LE Electric Luxury Sedan: Tesla's Worst Nightmare?

    One of the surprise stars of the New York Auto Show media days this week was the Infiniti LE Concept. The design study for an electric four-door sedan is a close approximation of a car that will roll off assembly lines in Smyrna, Tennessee, in about two years. And it poses an intriguing question...

    Yesterday, we got a brief glimpse of Infiniti's four-door sedan concept car; today, we have all the details of the Infiniti LE Concept.

  • Infiniti LE Concept at New York Auto Show, April 2012

    At auto shows, sometimes cars get uncovered before their official unveilings. The car you see here is Infiniti's Zero Emission Concept, a four-door sedan that will be formally introduced tomorrow morning at a press conference. But when Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn stopped by the stand, the covers came off just long enough for photos of Ghosn with his company's latest concept car. The silver sedan has all the Infiniti styling cues, including Infiniti's double-arced grille and the "crescent" roof pillar. The grille on this car glowed from the inside, which showed up close that it was largely a...

    2013 Lexus ES 300h Hybrid Bows At 2012 New York Auto Show

    Toyota made a vow to build every one of its vehicle lines in hybrid form, and it's adding another model to the growing hybrid list at this year's 2012 New York Auto Show with the introduction of the 2013 Lexus ES 300h. The first Lexus ES hybrid seems to share much with the latest Toyota Camry...

  • Fisker Atlantic concept unveiling before New York Auto Show, April 2012
    Fisker Atlantic: Video, Photos From New York Auto Show Launch

    Despite the travails of Fisker Automotive, it's safe to say this: Henrik Fisker knows how to design striking cars. The Fisker Atlantic unveiled last night is a stunning mid-size sport sedan. Or, perhaps, sport sedan concept, since it wasn't shown in motion. The Atlantic range-extended electric...

  • Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Hall in an ad for the 2012 Nissan Leaf

    It's the kind of question that makes every CEO roll his eyes. In effect, it translated to: Your sales of one model last month were lousy, so is that car a failure in the market? But if the model is the Nissan Leaf, the first battery electric vehicle sold in volume in the U.S. (and around the world), the question takes on added resonance. It referred to last month's U.S. sales of plug-in cars. Nissan sold 579 Leafs, while Chevrolet sold a whopping 2,289 Volts. That put total Volt sales ahead of Leaf sales for the first time since the two cars went on sale in December 2010. At this morning's...

  • 2013 Porsche Cayenne
    2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel: 2012 New York Auto Show

Nevertheless, Porsche has announced its first diesel in the U.S. market will be the 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel. It joins the 2012 Porsche...

    Mazda Takeri Diesel Concept: 2012 New York Auto Show Preview

    The Mazda Takeri Concept sedan will make its North American debut this week at the 2012 New York Auto Show. But this is a slightly different Takeri than we saw at the Geneva Motor Show.

  • 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas model at New York Auto Show, April 2011

    OK, so gas prices are hovering around $4 a gallon, and dispensing with gasoline altogether is getting more and more attractive. But for whatever reasons, plug-in cars aren't for you. Maybe it's the limited range of battery electric vehicles, maybe it's the $41,000 cost before incentives of the 2011 Chevy Volt. Well, depending on where you live, there is another option: fueling your car on natural gas. For more than a decade, Honda has been the only carmaker that has sold a compact passenger car powered by natural gas. For 2012, its all-new Civic line includes a model called the Civic Natural...

Its base price is $19,455. It's EPA-rated at 29 mpg city, 41 mpg highway, toward the top of the 2012 Civic...
