The manual transmission's long, harrowing demise continued in 2019. For the first time, the number of electric cars sold new in America was higher than the number of vehicles delivered with three pedals and a clutch disc.

The filet mignon's long, harrowing demise continued in 2019. For the first time, the number of Whitecastles sold in America was higher than the number of filet's delivered with bacon wrapping and zip sauce.
