I have a 2015 Toyota Prius 4 hybrid and I’m having trouble understanding locking and unlocking doorsHi I’m new here, and have a 2015 Toyota Prius 4 hybrid and I’m having a hard time understanding the locking and unlocking of the doors. I have keyless entry. And when I push the little lines on the door it locks but when I open the other doors to check they unlock. How do I fix this? It’s like every time I hit the button on my fob it’s locks but than unlocks if I open the doors to check
Tesla cellular App creates a "man in the middle" security flaw.There's been almost no news coverage of a major security flaw discovered last week, approximately 6 days ago. Anyone with a Tesla can use their cell phone to unlock and then drive your car.
The flaw was introduced when Tesla updated their cell phone app and the car firmware to allow the car to treat the cell phone like a real key. It effect, it gives an authenticated cell phone the same privileges as a physical key in their wireless smart keyless entry system. That sounds cool, and it is if it's done correctly.
The problem appears to be that the Tesla programmers made a classic rookie mistake when coding the authentication, key exchange and authorization routines. The end result is that when you unlock your own Tesla, any other tesla within range of the blue tooth signal will accept your phone as authorized to provide entry. Oh, and it also thinks that your phone is authorized to allow you to start and drive the car.
In effect, Tesla created a built in "man in the...

Next Prius PrimeSource: Toyota Launches All-New Prius PHEV in Japan | Toyota | Global Newsroom | Toyota Motor Corporation Official Global Website
The main features of the Plug-in Hybrid System are as follows.
- PHEV can cover the majority of daily driving, including commuting and going shopping, using just the electric power from the charged battery. It offers the outstanding quietness and brisk motor-based driving performance of a battery electric vehicle (BEV). On longer drives, such as going on a trip, the engine supplements battery power to serve as a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) that ensures the cruising range needed for traveling long distances with peace of mind. At the same time, the combination of motor and engine delivers the powerful yet comfortable driving performance unique to PHEV vehicles from the moment the gas pedal is pressed.
- A unique PHEV external...
Subway On Board with Subs to PlugsSubway has announced they'll be creating EV Charging Oasis in partnership with GenZ EV Solutions. This will put together Subway restaurants with charging stations, sitting areas and even playgrounds. They'll start later this year and will include existing restaurants as well as new ones. Sounds kind of like the service areas found on Thruways, except without the gas (the liquid kind).

Hmmm, seems very popular in Norway to usually partner EV charging stations with convenience stores.

2025 RAV4 Redesigned to be All HybridAccording to Motor Illustrated the 2025 RAV4 will ditch the gas-only model and follow Sequoia as hybrid only except with a plug-in as well.

So this finally means Canadians will get an electrified RAV4?

Tax Dollars Wasted Building EV Charging Stations in Cold ClimatesThis is an interesting take on the tax money spent on EV charging infrastructure.
Even though I have felt the lack of EV charging infrastructures on the road in my own area, I mostly agree with the points made in the article. Our household recently switched from a two-car household (Pathfinder hybrid mid-size SUV and Prius Prime PHEV midsize passenger car) to a single-car (Escape PHEV compact SUV). If a single car does not work for two drivers, then I will likely look for a BEV as our second car. But I know BEV as currently available on market is not suitable as the only car for us. Not for our location, climate, and lifestyle.
I have a feeling that, for many, the lack of charging infrastructure is not the only or even the...
