Jeep EV Charging Stations at Trailheads
The first 2021 Ford Bronco just sold, and the new owner ponied up some big bucks to make it happen.
The winning bidder dished out over a million dollars for vin 001. All the proceeds will go to the National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound, a charity that focuses on outdoor education programs. The first GMC Hummer EV Edition One also hitting the auction block for charity and selling for two and a half million dollars.
Instead of arriving to the trailhead without a full charge, Jeep is making it easier to off-road with an EV.
Working with Electrify America, Jeep is launching a network of level two charging stations at trailheads across the US. The stations will certainly come in handy for Jeep’s first plug-in, the Wrangler 4xe, plug-in hybrid, which can be fully charged in about 2 hours at the station. And there’s no doubt other off-road ready plug-ins like the Hummer EVs will be able to take advantage of the charge up too! The first stations will pop up at the Rubicon trail in Pollock Pines, California, Moab, Utah, and Big Bear, California with more to follow over the next year.
Bentley just built their 200,000th luxury car and it only took them 101 years to do it.
The landmark vehicle is appropriately a Bentayga Hybrid, signaling Bentley's shift to electrification and is destined for a Chinese customer. To put things in perspective, the automaker currently produces 85 cars a day.
Domino’s Pizza’s newest delivery driver isn’t a person but a self-driving car!
Customers at one store in Houston, Texas can opt to have their pie delivered by a fully autonomous vehicle, the R2, made by Nuro. Here's how it works; customers choose robot delivery and receive text updates with the car’s location, and a code to use to retrieve the order. Once the car arrives, the customer enters the code on a touchscreen and the car door opens up to serve the food.
Piping hot pizza, self-driving style! And that does it for this week’s Motor News.
