The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued some very early traffic fatality stats for 2015, and we hate to break it to you, but they don't look so good. In fact, they're pretty darned depressing.
The Chrysler 300 is a large sedan that straddles the line between near-premium and mainstream. Big and bold with rear-wheel drive and an available V-8, it is also quintessentially American.

More photos of Infiniti’s first ever compact, the Q30, has been released ahead of the car’s official world debut on September 15 at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. After numerous spy shots and teasers, the latest photos give us a clear look at the final design for the Q30—both inside and out.
It was in 2010 that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles first introduced its Pentastar-branded V-6 engines, and now the range is coming in for its first major update.

These are our latest spy shots of the second-generation R8 Spyder from Audi. The coupe made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show back in March and we suspect the convertible will debut at the Swiss show in 2016. A debut at this month’s Frankfurt Auto Show is also a possibility.

Incentives to purchase zero-emission cars come in a wild variety of types, from California's rebates--essentially a four-figure check in the mail--to single-occupant access to carpool lanes. The U.S. government has a Federal income-tax credit of $2,500 to $7,500 for purchase of a plug-in car that varies with the car's battery pack size.
