Off-road

The EMX bike is offered in Street and Cross (off-road) versions

About three years ago, in a cramped, musty garage in Graz, Austria, a handful of determined bike gear heads set to work on building an environmentally friendlier motocross-inspired e-bike. What they popped out three months later wasn't quite an FMX/motocross bike and wasn't quite a mountain bike. It was the all-electric EMX, a little bit of both.  Read More

Unimog: New work and power hydraulics systems and synergetic traction drive allows change ...

In the world of utilitarian power rangers, Mercedes-Benz’ Unimog and Econic transporter rank up there as two of the toughest, most versatile vehicles available. Mercedes Special Truck division is hoping to maintain that reputation with the unveiling of its latest models.  Read More

Off-roading in style?

Does anyone really need to be chauffeured around in a stretched out off-road rambler? Probably not, but if society ever collapses into a loose collection of post-apocalyptic outposts strung together with rock and rubble, we expect that the truck-based Devolro limousine will be the vehicle of choice for new-era one-percenters.  Read More

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee debuts at the New York auto show

After more than a decade, the Jeep Liberty has announced its retirement and appointed its predecessor its successor. The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee trades the hard-lined edge of the XJ for a more consumer-friendly small-crossover design. Jeep promises that it offers plenty of capability for those that want it but in a more refined, practical package than ever before.  Read More

Jeep Wrangler Stitch

Each year, hundreds of off-road enthusiasts spend Easter week migrating to the mecca of their sport: Moab, Utah. Loath to miss out on a great marketing opportunity, Jeep takes advantage and showcases a series of concept 4x4s that show what dedicated rock hounds can do with a little aftermarketing. It's shown more than 40 concepts since 2002, and this year, it's all about big tires and light weight. Its half-dozen Easter Jeep Safari concepts include an ultralight Wrangler and "the most extreme Grand Cherokee ever."  Read More

The G 63 6x6 gets dirty

What type of vehicle do you want if you plan to tackle dirt trails, rock fields and rolling slickrock expanses? Why, a 4x4, of course! Not necessarily, says Mercedes-Benz. You may want to add a pair of wheels and capitalize on the sheer power and might of the new G 63 AMG 6x6.  Read More

A range of 50 miles (80 km)

As automotive electric technology advances and grows, we're seeing it move from small city cars to larger vehicles. Toyota and Tesla have both shown electric crossover models, and electric drivetrains are being swapped into existing vehicles like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Now, Land Rover is preparing to show an electric update to the most unlikely of models ... the boxy, rugged Defender.  Read More

Jeep shows the 2014 Cherokee

After a few years of toying around with uninspiring, forgettable designs like the Liberty and the Compass, Jeep is ready to go in a new direction. More accurately, it's going in an old direction. At this year's New York Auto Show, it will revive a name that's been retired for over a decade. The name is old, but the all-new Cherokee looks nothing like the boxy dirt warrior of its past life.  Read More

SRI EV1 e-racer

One thousand miles of treacherous open desert, 750 lb ft of torque at zero rpm and a top speed of 125 mph; that’s what's in store for the drivers of the EV1 electric off-road racer. Not exactly your father’s Prius, this vehicle dedicated to proving the legitimacy of "green racing" is the brain child of the Strategic Recovery Institute: a California-based non-profit group focusing on sustainable design.  Read More

The Dropboard Carve Motor 50cc

Walking the floor of the recent ISPO Munich sports show, there were a few things that were almost impossible to miss – the automated polar bear walking the corridors, for instance (see the gallery). Outside of that oversized white teddy bear, and maybe a scantily clad promo girl or two, the Dropboards Carve Motor 50cc spun my head faster than anything. This burly, all-terrain motor board looks more like a go-kart than a skateboard.  Read More
