Thu, 19 Apr 2018 15:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,

(image) Tesla Inc is being probed by a California agency for occupational safety after a report that the electric carmaker failed to disclose serious injuries at a Fremont factory. The state's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal-OSHA) disclosed the inspection on Wednesday, two days after news website Reveal said that Tesla's omissions in legally mandated reports made its safety record appear better than it was.

Ford Mustang hybrid coming in 2020 [UPDATE]

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 15:15:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,

(image) We love driving the Ford Mustang. We've got one — a GT — in the Autoblog stable at the moment, and the keys to that V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive beast are highly coveted in the office. Some of us (well, maybe just this particular author) feel a tinge of guilt, though, when we fire it up and lustfully rev the engine. We can't help but think of the fuel it gulps on our spirited commutes home. For those of us with a heavy conscience, it looks like we'll be getting a greener offering in

Filed under: ,

(image) Lyft on Thursday announced a multimillion-dollar investment to counterbalance the pollution produced by its entire fleet of ride-sharing vehicles by immediately purchasing carbon offsets verified by a third party.

Ford Focus ST to come with a 275-hp 1.5-liter three-cylinder?

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:25:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) AutoGuide reports that the coming Ford Focus ST will run with a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine producing 275 horsepower.
