Self-driving cars hold incredible potential. They will provide freedom to those who can’t otherwise drive due to physical limitations. They will eventually give us back our time by letting us relax, read, or snooze during our commutes. Most importantly, they will save lives by eliminating driver error. That does not mean they will be perfect, […]
Lamborghini partnered with MIT last year to create the super car of the future. They unveiled that car – the Terzo Millennio concept – at the MIT campus on Monday. This new super car shows off a futuristic design and technologies that will one day make their way into the cars we drive. It was […]
It seems like a brilliant idea. Get rid of that pesky, error-prone human driver and make the car smart enough to do the job itself. It’s a wonderful picture of the future, but it doesn’t look like the public is ready to embrace the idea any time soon.
We have autonomous technology in our cars, but there are no cars for sale just yet that allow you to sit in the back seat and snooze while the car does all the work. The technology needs further testing and the government needs to give its approval first, but there is a bigger obstacle. People […]

One of the biggest objections people have to electric vehicles is the limited range. It’s easy to find a gas station when you’re on the road, but chargers for electric cars aren’t as common. Even though most people don’t drive enough in an average day to need a charge away from home, range anxiety is […]
Even if the extent of your automotive technical knowledge begins and ends with prime time television commercials, you probably understand that the most engine wear takes place when you start your car. Now that we’ve arrived at a point when most new cars have auto-stop/start technology which increases the number of starts in an average […]
A lot of us are vintage car people here at BestRide, content to tooling around in old Blazers, Celebrity wagons and Roadmaster Estates instead of owning the most recent technologically advanced sedan. But there’s one area in which we envy new car owners: car audio. You ride around with your podcasts and your Pandora playing […]
Testing of autonomous cars is generally limited to a specific area. There are even different rules in different U.S. states, but Continental and Magna have plans to test autonomous cars on a trip right across the U.S.-Canada border.
