UNI-CUB β: In No Way A Totally Superfluous Mobility Thing

UNI-CUB β: In No Way A Totally Superfluous Mobility Thing

Hate walking? Heck, who doesn’t. The fact is, mankind has been forced unfairly to evolve over the course of thousands of years to walk upright, and Honda thinks it’s about time we did something about it. That’s why they’ve unveiled their UNI-CUB β mobility device, which is basically like a Segway that doesn’t force you stand […]

The Nissan Pulsar Could Make a Killing in the States

The Nissan Pulsar Could Make a Killing in the States

Nissan is throwing their hat into the hatchback ring in Europe with the introduction of the all new Nissan Pulsar five-door. If the Pulsar is part of a master scheme to upstage Ford, Mazda, and Honda by putting out a handsome hatch to steal attention away from their products, then we’d have to say the […]

Movin’ on Up: Toyota Headquarters to Move to Texas

Everything is bigger in Texas—until now, as Toyota, a manufacturer focusing on much smaller, and thus much greener, cars, has plans to move Toyota headquarters to the Lone Star State. The unofficial-but-let’s-face-it-it’s-actually-probably-very-true report comes from Automotive News, which got its information from the always mysterious Unnamed Sources, a guy I have always wanted to meet […]

Scion NAIAS Display: I’d Still Rather Be Looking at Toyota

Marci and I were teasing ourselves when it came to the world’s automaker. The Toyota display was in plain sight, but its luxury arm, Lexus, and its youthful brand, Scion, were directly across from Fiat, so we forced ourselves to stop at these displays first. Don’t get me wrong, Lexus and Scion weren’t total wastes […]

Infiniti’s cars have never particularly wowed me, and the recent change of names (to Q-something or another) did not elevate the brand’s luxury in my mind but just made for one editing nightmare. That said, I really liked Infiniti’s booth at NAIAS. They had a theme similar to Nissan’s (or at least I perceived it […]

After Marci popped a few pills to alleviate the headache from Nissan’s Scent of the Future, we stepped over to the Hyundai NAIAS display. By now, our feet weighed us down like throbbing cinderblocks, but we had just a few hours left to fit everything in. Hyundai’s layout was pretty basic compared to the one […]

General Motors NAIAS Display: Meeting the Car and Truck of the Year

Although we were most excited to get to see the Car and Truck of the Year (Corvette Stingray and Silverado, respectively) at the Chevy NAIAS display, we first made our way through Buick’s and GMC’s offerings. Buick’s five models stood on display at the Buick booth, but the one I found the most entertaining was […]
