MotorWeek - Season 41

Evolution of America: 1619 to Today
MPT NationalMotorWeek Music Video

Join MotorWeek, television’s longest running automotive series, as we plug-in for our 41st season on public television. Indeed, the focus will be on gaining momentum to move away from fossil fuels for personal transportation, with an eye towards an all-electric future for passenger cars, utilities, and even trucks.

In fact, during season 41, the series’ Host and Creator John Davis and the MotorWeekcrew, will drive more all-new models with a plug; be that a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or PHEVs, and totally electric vehicles or EVs; than new designs using a conventional gas or diesel only powertrain.

This follows confirmation from car companies that hundreds of new electrified models will be introduced over the next few years, and the fact that a growing list of companies are committing to a full-electric conversion as early as 2035.

Of course, one thing that will not change is our commitment to our viewers. Every week, the MotorWeek team continues their relentless quest to test, evaluate, and understand the insatiable but ever evolving American appetite for personal transportation.

Our unbiased evaluations cover all the new vehicles on any car buyer’s wish list; showcasing the latest technology and fuels, while grading their real-world performance, practicality, efficiency and safety. From hatchbacks to sport utility vehicles, exotics to pickup trucks, our staff gets comfortable behind the wheel of more than 150 vehicles each season.

Complete with updated open animation, the MotorWeekSeason 41feature line-up continues with returning popular segments like Goss’ Garage, where Master Technician Pat Goss offers up know-it-yourself car care advice; Lauren Morrison keeps viewers in the know with consumer news and trends in Motor News; adventurous Over the Edge Reporter Greg Carloss turns up the fun with a look at the auto world in overdrive; our Lifestyle Reporter Stephanie Hart will deliver insights on driving and automotive safety, money-saving advice, as well as the latest technological advances in FYI; Brian Robinson takes a very hands-on look at the two-wheel experience reviewing the newest motorcycles and scooters in Two Wheelin’; while AutoWorld explores the advancing influence of alternative fuels, electrification, and autonomous driving safety.
