Hybrid electric automobile
Ever found yourself stuck in a seemingly never-ending commute? We did too, and that's how we ended up with Happy Medic's hilarious tale of his Prius being just nine inches too wide for his new workspace! We navigated the perilous world of street parking, old firehouses and their original doors, and the diamond lane sticker that promised a faster commute - if only the car could fit somewhere! In true Motor Cop fashion, we found humor in adversity and a story worth sharing.Now, if you've ever toyed with the idea of getting an electric scooter, hold on to your helmets because we're going on an exhilarating ride! We took the challenge head on, looking at the best models available, their top speed, range, brakes, tires, and mechanical systems. And as we zipped through safety concerns and sidewalk etiquette, we somehow ended up chatting about Kazakhstan! Trust us, this is a discussion you don't want to miss.Then, we took a turn into the world of football, scooters, and tickets. We chatted about Brett Goldstein's amusing antics with a whistle - and the potential of using one to clear pedestrians out of your scooter path! We also chewed over the return of football season and commiserated over the Chiefs' Thursday night loss. And if that's not enough, we strategized over board games like Pandemic, Gloomhaven, Frosthaven, and Arkham Horror. And to top it all, we're buzzing with excitement for Jeff's upcoming visit to the studio. So, if you're looking for a lively chat about life, scooters, board games and more, this episode's got you covered!Tickets for 1st Responders Concerts, Sporting Events, Comedy Shows and more at INCREDIBLE discounts!Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

For most of his career, Tony Posawatz was a highly successful engineer working in GM's lucrative truck division. That meant big rigs powered by gasoline and diesel engines. Then one day in 2006 GM's top leadership appointed him to lead a breakthrough initiative. "Build us an electric car that will make people forget all about the Toyota Prius," they said. GM had taken a shot at an all-electric vehicle in the 1990s called the EV1. Tony and his team of top notch GM engineers knew that the way to beat the Prius was to go electric. But range anxiety was an issue. So, they got inventive and designed a propulsion system that featured both an electric battery and a gasoline engine. This set-up, in time, would become known as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or a PHEV. That product, which debuted 11 years ago, served as a bridge to a barrage of pure electrics like the Tesla Model 3, the Hyundai IONIQ, the Mustang Mach E, the Rivians and the Lucids now hitting the market today. How far along have we advanced on the path to electrics. And how much work still remains to be done before we reach electric nirvana?

Canada says it's mulling a response to a possible "authoritarian" takeover in the U.S. - by which they mean their corrupt buddies who keep them wealthy and in power face justice. Plus, the American Psychological Association's new guidebook includes terms like "gender Prius," "gender smoothie," and "gender by season." And finally, new video is released of an ambush shooting in Fargo, North Dakota, killing one police officer and wounding three more, carried out by a man who came to the U.S. as a Syrian asylum seeker.Guests:Scott S.

The BROS are back in person, and they start things off by cracking open a can of Hard Mountain Dew to wet their pipes. This cast is pretty lengthy, and the topics and tangents go all over the place. So I hope you like hearing about Coyne is selling his 2003 BMW M5, Garrett bought a Corolla GR, Altimas on the highway, seeing a Model S Plaid at a stoplight, Integra Type S vs Civic Type R, the new Prius' design and people's dumb opinions about it, saying a car has a fighter jet cockpit, and finally...

Happy Tuesday, troublemakers! Today we're covering Toyota's ramp-up of hydrogen fuel cells, the trouble with EV supply and demand, and the surprising rise of Threads.Toyota has been taking a measured approach to the future of automobiles, and is now investing in hydrogen fuel cell systems. Beginning in December, Toyota will start producing hydrogen fuel cell drivetrains in the US for the first time, all while developing a next-gen system.The Georgetown, KY plant will get a hydrogen dedicated line producing fuel cell modules for heavy duty trucks, with a goal of 200,000 commercial and passenger vehicles by… the year 2030.Trucking could be a breakthrough for hydrogen, as trucks run on established routes, and can guarantee business for costly hydrogen stations, creating a future network for passenger vehicles.In May, Toyota agreed with Daimler Truck Holding to merge Toyota's Hino subsidiary with Daimler's Mitsubishi Fuso truck unit.Producing 10,000 units a month is what Toyota needs to break even, according to Chief Technology Officer Hiroki Nakajima. He also said “Once we hit a tipping point, there will be explosive expansion.”In 2026, the Japanese automaker will introduce a new system that reduces the cost of the fuel stack by 50%, improves cruising range by 20% and will make the engine twice as durable as a diesel.The system will scale to fit all types of vehicles.Even though automakers have been scaling their EV output to challenge Tesla, there's one little problem: not enough buyers. According to Cox Automotive, the nationwide supply of EVs in stock has swelled nearly 350% this year, roughly 3 month's worth of supply.EV sales are expected to surpass 1 million units in 2023, about 6.5% of the auto market.Some notable brands with higher inventories:Genesis sold only 18 of its G80 sedans in June, with 210 in stock (a 350 day supply)Audi's Q4 and Q8, and the GMC Hummer EV all have inventories above 100 days and aren't eligible for federal tax credits.Imported models from Kia, Hyundai and Nissan are stacking up because they aren't eligible either.The once hot Ford Mach E has cooled to a 117 day supply.On the other end of the spectrum, hybrids have a lower inventory, with 44 days industrywide. Toyota's Prius and RAV4 are under 30 days.Instagram's new Threads app has reached 100 million users, even though it's only been out for a week.Mark Zuckerberg said the launch has been “way beyond our expectations. [It's] mostly organic demand and we haven't turned on many promotions yet.”Instagram head Adam Mosseri credited the team behind Threads. “We know this is a race to the starting line. They say ‘make it work, make it great, make it grow.' Well, we certainly did things out of order, but I promise we will make this thing great.”As of last Thursday, the platform had over 95 million posts and 190 million likes.Get the Daily Push Back email at https://www.asotu.com/ JOIN the conversation on LinkedIn at: https://www.linkedin.com/company/asotu/ Read our most recent email at: https://www.asotu.com/media/push-back-email ASOTU Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/automotivestateoftheunion

Jessica Kestermann loves to remind me that she is exactly half my age. Ha ha. Still, we met on a cold, January morning a few years ago at Pedernales State Park, where we warmed up inside a mutual friend's Prius and got to know each other as our other friends finished their longer miles. Since then, we've tackled Rocky Raccoon half-marathon prior to the 2021 Big Texas Freeze. Later that year, I dragged her to Marble Falls to volunteer at the Trivium race. She is an ultrarunner, but considers herself a roadie at heart. I don't know about that. --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thestubborntortoise/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thestubborntortoise/support

This week on Flightless Bird, David Farrier attempts to get over the trauma of his last trip to the DMV, where Monica Padman's dirty Prius ruined everything. Will David finally get his license or are he and Monica doomed to fail for all eternity? To help him on his quest, Farrier talks to the head of the California DMV, Steve Gordon. Gordon was brought in four years ago by the governor of LA, Gavin Newsom, to sort out a DMV plagued by issues - and Farrier figures he might have some tips. Or, at the very least, clear up why LA driving licenses list your height and weight… and whether driving instructors want you to pass or fail.
While Toyota jumped to the front of the pack with its hybrid Prius when the company launched it in Japan in 1997, the company hasn't been as quick with battery-electric vehicles. Well, that tide is slowly shifting with the wildly named bZ4X. Toyota's battery-electric crossover is giving ‘Yota fans a battery-electric option in the dealership, and giving the company valuable lessons in churning out EVs. This battery-electric crossover is powered by either a 201 hp motor in the front for front-wheel-drive models or that same 201 hp motor in the front and an 80 hp motor in the rear to give the bZ4X an all-wheel-drive variant. Feeding this powertrain is either a 71.4 kWh battery for front-wheel-drive models or a slightly larger 72.8 kWh battery for all-wheel-drive bZ4X models. On this episode of Quick Spin, Autoweek's Emmet White hops behind the wheel of the '23 Toyota bZ4X and puts it through its paces. White takes you on a guided tour of the Toyota EV and highlights some of his favorite interior and exterior features. Later in the show, White takes you along for a live drive review of the bZ4X where he relays his experience behind the wheel. Adding to those segments, host Wesley Wren chats with White about the Toyota's features, his experience with the car, and more. Closing the show, the pair breakdown what makes the '23 Toyota bZ4X special.
On the podcast today is first-time guest and Ford CEO, Jim Farley. Prior to joining Ford in 2007, Farley was group vice president and general manager of Lexus, and the group vice president responsible for all Toyota Division market planning, advertising and merchandising Under Farley's leadership, Ford has boosted investment in electric vehicles to more than $50 billion and has set ambitious targets for scaling their production to 600,000 EVs a year by the end of 2023 and more than 2 million by the end of 2026. Recorded over Zoom at the FC North show in Harrogate, Robert and Jim pull the curtain back and talk EV software, electric transits, battery plants, how the Prius came to be and more.
