    Ford’s baby bassinet is an absolute home run idea! Let’s just hope it has home run pricing.

    I too can attest to the wonders of a car in motion for putting a baby to sleep. Fantastic idea.

  2. Tom Says:

    I sure wish Ford would have had that cot 30 years ago!

  3. John McElroy Says:

    I want Ford to make a bassinet big enough for me!

  4. Barry T Says:

    Sean – good suggestion! I could tell by the look on your face you knew what you were talking about! :)

    The “Power Egg” power exchange is interesting – thanks for keeping us up on things automotive, as always.

  5. W L Simpson Says:

    The unavailable as yet Nissan EPower Yoke has so
    few batts they all fit under the front seat. All
    the other approaches to EV World just don’t make good sense to me.
    I was learning the trade 10 yrs before A/C became available.

  6. Kit Gerhart Says:

    So far, no one seems to have real world gas mileage info on the e-power Versa Note. I’m guessing the city mileage will be pretty good, but highway will be bad, with the inefficiency of the series hybrid system when the ICE is running most of the time. From what I can find, it will be sold only in Japan, at least early on.

  7. David Sprowl Says:

    TankTwo has a interesting concept. Perhaps a segment on Autoline this week would be in order.

  8. Bob Gurr Says:

    Van Nuys California – Chevy Bolt dealer stock was 25 last month, 51 last week, 66 this week. Where are EV buyers?

  9. Kit Gerhart Says:

    8 They need to ship some of them to Florida and Indiana. Is Van Nuys full of “bedroom communities” with no place to plug in an EV? That could be why they aren’t selling.
