autoevolution's Travel Month

Travel freeze and travel ban. These are two of the most widespread expression we’ve heard back in 2020, when the health crisis was at its peak, and the end of the tunnel was not even in sight. Granted, the thing is far from over, but for some time now people started doing what they like most once more. And that includes lots and lots of travel.

In most parts of our planet, it’s summertime, and that means large groups of people are moving to and fro. They do so by plane, car, boat, motorcycle, bicycle… Some, like the billionaires of the world and other lucky few, are even climbing in spaceships to reach the boundary between our home world and the mysteries of the great unknown.

For more than a year now, autoevolution has been running special monthly coverages on various topics. We mostly focused on precise things, such as a variety of carmakers or bike makers. But this August we’re going to do things differently.

In August, we’re celebrating travel here at autoevolution. That’s right, it’s Travel Month, and we’re not going to see just one type of vehicle being ripped apart and exposed for you all to see, but a great variety of them.

We’re going to talk about the machines we use to travel on the road, on the water and under it, in the sky, and in space and elsewhere – in essence, everything and anything designed to take humans outside the confines of their own dwellings. Enjoy!
