China’s GAC Motor Debuts Electric People-Mover Concept in Detroit

China’s GAC Motor Debuts Electric People-Mover Concept in Detroit GAC Motor, China’s fifth largest automaker by volume, is keen on selling vehicles in the U.S. Last year, it got one step closer to its goal by opening a new design studio in California. Now, the automaker is showing off its first concept birthed from the studio, a seven-passenger EV known as the Entranze. © Motor Trend Staff GAC 05 Like many new concepts, the vehicle doesn't look like a traditional crossover or sedan. Instead, GAC describes it as a multi-purpose vehicle, and it was created with the American road trip in mind. The driver and passengers enter the cabin through patio-inspired sliding glass doors.

The Petersen Museum is set to open the first ever all-electric bike exhibit.

Opening in late April of this year, the Petersen Automotive Museum is set to become the very first to host a display completely dedicated to electric motorcycles. This exhibit has been dubbed the “Electric Revolution” and will explore the history and future of the electric bike. In the collection will be 21 examples of builds from custom shops and manufacturers alike.

2019 Audi E-Tron First Drive: All Electric, All SUV

2019 Audi E-Tron First Drive: All Electric, All SUV Dunes ripple off into the distance under a brassy sky. The Audi dances over stutter bumps as it slaloms between piles of soft sand. A quick flick of the wrist and flex of the right ankle: instant grip and grunt, dust and gravel spitting from all four wheels. The irony of the moment is delicious. We're in the Middle Eastern emirate of Abu Dhabi, driving through a desert soaked in oil, having fun in an electric luxury SUV.

“As the transportation industry moves toward electric-powered vehicles, it is our responsibility as a museum to accurately represent this progression with our exhibits,” said Petersen Automotive Museum Executive Director Terry L. Karges. “Because of the growing popularity of e-bikes, we felt it was the right time to debut “Electric Revolution” and show our audience how these ultra-stylish and contemporary designs are pointing the way to the future.”

Since zero-emissions is becoming part of the everyday landscape on the road, its a prominent part of the driving experience that deserves credit where it’s due. This will include custom, prototype, racing, and production electric motorcycles from CAKE, Neil Connolly, Curtiss Motorcycles, Alta Motors, Shiny Hammer, Blatant Moto, Joey Ruiter and more. American industry stalwart Harley-Davidson, who has graciously underwritten this exhibit, will also provide three recent prototypes from their EV program, including the 2020 LiveWire.

“Other key bikes on display will include CAKE’s “Kalk,” Sweden’s innovative, light and stylish off-road e-bike that sold out its first run and has won design awards around the world; Neil Connolly’s “STROM 36,” which was the first-ever electric bike to be featured in the AMD World Championship Custom Show in 2015; and Curtiss Motorcycles’ “Zeus,” which was the company’s debut bike after re-branding in 2018.”

The Motorcycle Arts Foundation (MAF) Co-Founder, Paul d’Orleans, has curated the “Electric Revolution” exhibit, and it will be on display until November of this year at their famous SoCal museum.
