Is There an E-Bike Revolution on the Horizon? Depends What You Mean by "Bike"

Electric motorcycles are becoming a thing. Electric bicycle? Meh.

For a few years there's been talk, in certain extremely small circles, of a coming e-bike revolution. The future of transportation, they say, is about to change radically as the population explodes and more people live in densely populated cities. And that much is true, but that doesn't mean that e-bikes are poised to take over. For one thing, no one can seem to agree on what an e-bike is.

News Roundup: Kia Optima Teaser, Super Troopers 2, and Infiniti's New Sport Exhaust

Your auto news roundup for the week of 03/20 - 03/27.

If you've been living under a rock for the last day or two, you might have missed the announcement that Broken Lizard is attempting to crowd-fund its next venture, Super Troopers 2. Those who chose to donate early on (they've already surpassed the $2M minimum required to make a bare-bones movie) had a variety of perks come along with that donation. One lucky patron of the arts plunked down $35,000 for the chance to take home the "squad car" they'll be using in the movie.

DeltaWing Wants to Build a Gas-Powered Car that's More Efficient than Any Hybrid

Even more proof that racing is beneficial to everybody.

The DeltaWing is a strange beast. If you're not up to date on endurance racing, what you need to know is that the DeltaWing is a revolutionary racecar that takes the idea of traditional motorsport design and turns it upside down. Now, the company that's responsible for this car wants to bring its know-how to passenger vehicles, and a preliminary engineering study proves that it might be one of the best decisions to make.

Recall Roundup: Honda Expands Takata Recall Again, Range Rover Evoque Transmission Issues

Let's see what's new in automotive recalls this week.

Land Rover has issued a recall for nearly 40,000 examples of the 2014 and 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, all of which are located in China. The recall comes after a Chinese television program exposed Evoque owners suffering from transmission issues, including poor shifting, excessive noise, and an inability to put the car in Park. Along with replacing the affected transmissions, Land Rover is extending its transmission warranty to seven years or roughly 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Lyft Drivers Claim They Were Cheated Out of $1,000 Bonuses

A lawsuit levied against the ridesharing app will go before a jury.

When Lyft started a new promotional program last month, offering a $1,000 incentive to recruit new drivers, it almost seemed too good to be true. And, for many applicants who were eager to take advantage of the bonus opportunity, it was. A 22-page complaint asserts that Lyft cheated many drivers out of bonuses, totaling $5 million.

The 2016 Jaguar XF: Lighter, Prettier, More Connected Than Ever

Its new design brings it in line with the upcoming XE.

Barring a minor refresh, the Jaguar XF mid-size luxury car has been hanging out for about eight years now, which means it's more than a bit due for an update. Now that Jaguar's launched an all-new XE set to slot beneath the XF in both size and price, Jaguar's built a second-generation XF that bears a strong resemblance to its new little brother - and it's got a few additional tricks up its sleeve, as well.

Flipping the Bird: 5 Times Giving the Middle Finger is an Acceptable Gesture in Traffic

The finger can be appropriate under certain conditions.

Giving the one-finger salute is as old as Oedipus. It's so deeply ingrained into our culture, it can never truly die. In Ancient Greece, it was given to degrade and insult whomever received it. It's good to know some things never change. Many of us shy away from its usage while driving, for fear of retaliation or becoming a headline in some road-rage incident

Engine Porn: Cadillac's All-New 3.0-Liter Twin-Turbo V-6 Will Excite Your Inner Enginerd

It's about to get all technical up in here. Hope you're prepared.

Sometimes, it feels like automakers use engines for decades. In fact, they do: Ford's Vulcan V-6 existed in new cars for 20-some-odd years, and Chevrolet's 4.3-liter V-6 has been finding new homes like a hermit crab since 1985 (they finally stopped production about a year ago). It's a good day, then, when we get to see a new engine, one that might be around itself for a third of a century. We've got one such event right now, with the reveal of Cadillac's new twin-turbo V-6.

The 2016 Chevy Malibu Will Spy on Your Kids, and That's a Good Thing

Because you know you can't trust those horrid freaks behind the wheel.

It's no secret that young people between the ages of 16 and 25 are, for the most part, incredibly bad drivers. They are the most distracted, the most likely to be driving while intoxicated, the most impulsive, and, it goes without saying, the least experienced people on the road.
