Before the summer ends, showrooms will be getting the first Mercedes-Benz all electric compact cars. The B-Class Electric Drive will be the most expensive EV on the market to date, starting at $42,375.

When Cadillac launched its CTS-V back in 2004, everyone thought they were mad. But hindsight has provided a clearer view of their brilliance. Cramming a massively overpowered engine into a car that was designed on an Etch-a-Sketch was a good idea.

The coupe version has few peers, save for an Audi RS and a $742k BMW M79 zDrive GrandSomething-or-other. But sadly it's about to wave goodbye, as the redesigned, sedan-only 2015 Cadillac CTS-V gets ready to launch. So let's have a look at the last 500 special edition CTS-V Coupes.

Is it deserved? Having recently been underwhelmed by the A1—a VW Polo with a brash grille—would the A3 be more impressive?

In the United States, motorcyclist deaths decreased by seven percent in 2013, making it only the second time that’s happened since 1997. The drop may be due to the lack of the kind of weather that lures bikers out, rather than safer driving, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA).
We all face an eventual demise and automobiles are no different. Every year models drop off the map, some to be replaced by better versions and others to be forgotten.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday. I do hope none of you have forgotten to at least buy a card. In honor of the holiday, here are some thoughts and tidbits concerning mothers and driving. It should be stated that in my wanders across the web I found a disturbing number of news stories relating to awful mothers doing the unthinkable to their children and involving a vehicle. I have left all of that out. This article concerns affection, both to and from mothers everywhere.
