If studies are to be believed, than Toyota has a problem on social media. It’s not the way they handle their accounts nor is it any negative news coming in from various news sources. The problem they have today has to do with perception. Social media is ignoring the Prius.
Rocco Penn's Post Reel
One of the biggest knocks against the electric vehicle revolution is range. It’s hard to get from one charging station to another in some places around the country. They are city drivers, designed to get you back and forth from work less than 20 miles away to get you there without incident on the EPA-rated 82 mile range Chevrolet Spark.
Digital Trends wanted to put the limits to the test. According to Chevy, they could get well over 100 miles in ideal situations. Those “ideal” situations weren’t exactly practical – 18 MPH nonstop with the right driving conditions. To test it, they took it to the track and set the record, unofficially. There are no recorded events for this type of test, so it’s the record as far as we know. That’s good enough for us!
According to the driver:
I prodded the Chevy team for more info. The Spark EV engineers admitted that in ideal conditions, the Spark could probably go 160 to 180 miles on a single charge, which – at 18.5 mph – would take around nine hours of non-stop driving.
It’s pretty rare for a sports car to bring mainstream excitement the way that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray has brought to the automotive world this year. As Digital Trends puts it, it’s “The ‘Vette Chevy should have built a decade ago.”
The tech environment that has been growing around us for a few decades isn’t fair. It often rewards the innovators more than the creators and those who put in the effort to launch a new product or start a new segment are often left in the cold. Such is the case with the three tech companies below who changed the world forever despite not being with us at this time thanks to financial challenges.
One of the only industries that remains strong in the job market regardless of the state of the economy is health care. It doesn’t matter how much money people are spending on products and services – when they’re sick, they’re sick.
Part adrenaline. Part testosterone. All badass.
