Translogic is moving to Autoblog with a new host, Jonathon Buckley. The award-winning video series has covered breakthroughs in transportation technology since it launched on AOL Autos in 2011. Jonathon will now continue that tradition at Autoblog.

In the weeks ahead, Translogic will deliver episodes featuring an Italian supercar, a three-wheeled hypermiler, and a plug-in hybrid sportscar. Catch Jonathon's debut episode of Translogic, premiering today on Autoblog at 12:45PM ET, featuring the all-electric Mission RS superbike, and stay tuned for new installments of the series every-other Monday, right here on Autoblog.

      wow....great first episode with your new host. Is that Mr. Buckley on the bike? Apparently he really knows his stuff and CAN ride. Is he a professional racer? I am looking forward to the next program. Thanks....

        Yes that was him on the bike. No I don't believe he is a professional racer.

      "The award-winning video series" GAG...what "award" did it win? One that your own company awarded it? Or one that you bought?

        You do realize there is an award for web-based TV, right? It's called the Webbies. Might want to look it up.
