26Toyota expanding Aichi's test EV infrastructure in Japan

OK, now we're really confused. In the US, Toyota has been telling anyone who cares to listen that the future of advanced-powertrain technology is hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, not electric ones. In China, a Toyota joint venture is looking at EVs. Over in Japan? They've just decided to pony up a little more for testing electric-vehicle technology. Maybe something's lost in translation.

31Porsche Macan fails moose test, Stuttgart responds

Different countries have different safety standards, but most of them revolve around a similar set of tests: front impact, side impact, offset impact, rollover... the usual. But Sweden has its own test. It's called the Moose Test (or the Elk Test), and it's unique to Scandinavia: a car has to be able to avoid a theoretical antlered mammal on the road while traveling at 43.5 miles per hour and return to its previous course without flipping over. The Jeep Grand Cherokee ran afoul of the uniquely N

47Behold the coolest yet most terrifying crash test video ever

Whatever you may have to say about US foreign policy, the bottom line is that there are American embassies and consulates in places around the world that aren't necessarily friendly towards America. That's how we end up with State Department facilities in far-flung locations getting attacked. Some of those attacks can be thwarted through good intelligence, effective security and maybe an eagle-eyed sniper or two on the roof, but it takes something a bit more concrete to stop a speeding truck pac

5Formula E holds full-scale simulation EV race at Donington

It's coming down to the line. After months if not years of preparation, the inaugural Formula E championship will kick off in just over a month from now with the world's first all-electric formula race in Beijing. But before the series can get there, it needs to practice.

81More than 50% of NY drivers fail basic road test

A new analysis of data from New York State has revealed that less than half of those who took a driving test in New York City last year passed the on-road exam. According to the New York Daily News, a total of 46 percent of the 181,196 individuals who took the basic road test in 2012 passed the assessment, down from 52 percent the year prior. Not surprisingly, the American Automobile Association and driving school owners point to the fact that schools have cut driver's education in an attempt to

Add'Real world' electric vehicle test easily beats EPA ratings

Some Republicans decry what they say are the liberal leanings of the federal government, but when it comes to rating the single-charge range of electric vehicles, the feds' Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is decidedly conservative.

35Austin homeowners work with GM, OnStar on Volt-testing project

With the slogan "Keep Austin Weird," the Texas capital has long prided itself on thinking a little different than the rest of the state, let alone the country.

AddFighter Jet Ejection Seat Test [VIDEO]

From Top Gun to James Bond, Hollywood's dramatic use of the ejector seat has been with us for decades. But, if you ask us, all the special effects in Michael Bay's edit suite can't amass the awe of the real thing.

3Williams, Sauber give emerging talents their shot at the big leagues

A growing array of F1 teams have been developing young driver programs over the past few years. BMW ranked high among them while competing in the top-tier racing series, but in its absence, the teams it partnered with have picked up the proverbial mantle.

40Can you name that road sign? Take this quiz and find out

A couple of weeks ago, we challenged you to take a shot at a written driving test. The test wasn't designed for rocket scientists, but a few of you justifiably complained about the confusing verbiage in some of the questions, and the fact that some laws vary from state to state. Yeah, some of you flunked.

73Could you still pass a driving test? Take this quiz and find out

If you are like most of us, you look back at your first DMV-issued driving test – that one you took with a dull nub of a pencil while standing in a crowded room – and remember racking your brain over questions that not only made no sense, but some that were downright confusing. Whether we approve of the age-old process or not, everyone eventually passes their first driving test (and it seems many forget everything the moment they hit the highways).

14Statement on Ferrari website lashes out against Toro Rosso "indiscretion"

Sour grapes much? Both of Italy's Formula One teams had to switch drivers mid-season during the year: Scuderia Toro Rosso (because Sebastien Bourdais wasn't working out) and Scuderia Ferrari (due to Felipe Massa injury). However, due to the comprehensive ban on in-season testing, neither could put their replacements into the cockpits of their F1 cars until the following grand prix weekend. So STR's newcomer Jaime Alguersuari was thrown straight into the deep end to sink or swim, while Ferrari, f
