100% Accurate Headlines
We strive for 100% accurate headlines and apply a rigorous vetting process to every news article on the site. Rumors and insider reports are identified accordingly to ensure distinction between confirmed information and industry buzz that is of interest to our readers.
Before any article is written, we ensure the information is new and accurate. We verify sources and always dig down to the original source (and reference material if applicable) before the writing process begins. Even if other outlets report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100% confirmation to claim it’s actually confirmation. We do not post clickbait. Our headlines might be bold - but we don't throw out broad statements just to sound bold. It has to be accurate and fact-checked. HotCars articles don’t just report the news, we provide industry-leading context that explains why that news is important to you.
HotCars team consists of writers from diverse backgrounds in all facets of the automotive news industry brought together by a passion for anything with two or four wheels.
Our writers and editors are industry veterans - and make sure every new article has the latest info, the most accurate info, and all relevant details. When we are the original source, we follow basic journalism principles.
Considering The Big Picture
Standards for feature content are the same and we stress the importance of research and objectivity - as well as presenting a clear argument (and when drawing out a conclusion or theory, considering and including relevant counter-arguments). This approach allows us to address more possibilities and answer questions before they’re asked by readers.
