Darby Barber is a creative designer at General Motors, currently part of the Chevy trucks team. She joined GM at the beginning of 2016 after graduating from the College of Creative Studies. At 23, she is most likely one of the youngest female automotive designers currently in the industry. And quite possibly the most…
Some people say the media should only cover what President-elect Donald Trump does, not what he says. But today he let loose another tweet that indicates he hasn’t forgotten his vendetta against the North American Free Trade Agreement, and that has huge implications for automakers—and your choice in what cars you can…
Uber is partnering with the car-sharing service Maven (which is owned and operated by General Motors) to let Uber drivers rent GM vehicles on a weekly basis. The business will cost drivers $179 plus taxes and fees, and driver will not incur any extra fees for using the car for personal use.
If you own a GM vehicle from 2014-2017, listen up: General Motors is recalling nearly 4.3 million vehicles worldwide after discovering a software defect that prevents air bags from deploying during a crash. The software bug may also prevent the seat belts from locking properly. The flaw has already been linked to one…
The State of Michigan now holds $72 million of Tesla stock for state retirement funds. That would be the same State of Michigan that still bans Tesla from selling vehicles using a direct sales model without dealerships.
General Motors was really excited about introducing the all-electric Chevy Bolt earlier this year, being the only major automaker to bring a practical 200 mile range EV rival to Tesla’s Model 3 to market an entire year sooner. The problem with the Bolt is that it won’t be exciting to American buyers.
General Motors is currently testing an autonomous version of their Chevy Bolt on public roads. Now, they could do that anywhere, really, but they chose a very particular location instead.
Two questions stood out immediately as Volkswagen got torn apart in their Dieselgate scandal: why was this European carmaker under fire in America, and why weren’t other carmakers implicated as well? One small loophole might be the answer.
In their quest to stay relevant as our consumption of cars changes, General Motors dumped $500 million into the ride-sharing app Lyft this year. They plan to be part of the first generation of self-driving taxis, which we’re now hearing will be Chevy Bolt EVs and active within the next twelve months.
For the past two decades, the number of genetically-modified crops has been steadily skyrocketing around the globe. Until 2015, when the number saw its first recorded drop. What’s going on?
General Motors revealed plans to have human chaperones in the first generation of its self-driving vehicles through its partnership with ride-sharing service Lyft, which should only make your trip even more uncomfortable than a current Lyft fare as you and your ambivalent chaperone struggle with the moral complexities…
Want to drive for Lyft but lack the fundamental car? No problem: GM will now rent out a Chevy Equinox for you to use, which will cost between $100 per week or nothing at all if you clock up enough Lyft journeys in the vehicle.
Want a car for an hour or two? Normally you’d turn to Zipcar, but now General Motors has announced an alternative car sharing scheme that it’s calling Maven.
Once, long ago, I was like many of you: a young, beautiful gadabout, ready to drink lustily from the frothing cup of life. One particular quaff of that cup is significant, because it involves a short drive in the shining but infamously doomed General Motors EV1, and 2016 will mark that car’s 20th anniversary. In honor…
Do not adjust your monitor: this lime is weirdly red on the inside. In fact, the fruit is genetically engineered to create proteins that provide the color, as well as potentially making the lime more health-giving.
Detroit is more than a little worried about the tech-centric future of automobiles, namely the ones that drive themselves. So it’s no surprise that GM is investing $500 million in Lyft to build a network of autonomous cars. Why not just buy the whole company?!
After decades of indecision, the Food and Drug Administration has finally approved its first genetically modified animal as safe to eat. Welcome a fast-growing GM Atlantic Salmon to your plate.
The first time I saw CarPlay in action, I couldn’t believe it. You could plug your iPhone into the infotainment system and then get iOS on your dashboard?! It seemed like Apple finally found a way to turn an automobile into a rolling computer like Knight Rider.
When I watched some security researchers hack into several cars without even touching them, my head exploded a little bit.
