Southern California Edison has begun issuing rebates of $450 to people who purchase a plug-in hybrid or electric car. The program applies to those who buy a used EV as well as new cars.
With the rising number of plug-in models available in the U.S., many at increasingly affordable prices, and with electricity getting greener, the climate benefits of electric cars are growing.
One of the more interesting things for me in our annual EV surveys is how much people want various special features — auto lane change, all-wheel drive, superfast charging, fast charging, etc. The extra fun in our new 93-page electric car driver report is that we got these responses segmented by type of EV and region. Jump down below the line for the results.
Rumors are now going around that BMW has killed off the i5 electric vehicle project. These rumors seem to have originated with “unnamed sources” at BMW, according to BMWBlog, so who knows if they are actually true or not at this point?
This article serves as a complement to my first review of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, which was a summary of my takeaways from my first 24 hours with the car. Disclaimer: I didn’t sleep in the Bolt, so there’s admittedly a gap there in the review process.
When it comes to buying a car, price is a notable issue of consideration to … almost everyone. So, a lot of people want to know what the cheapest electric car is. I’d ask you what car you think that is … but we just put it in the title.
After visiting relatives and having coffee close by, I found two guys staring at the BMW i3. “It’s electric, isn’t it?” … “Yes, but this one has a gas range extender” … “Really? How does that work?”
After switching cars in the morning, leaving the Nissan Leaf and picking up the blue BMW i3 REx, we prepared for the trip to Connecticut. As there would be more than one car travelling, the smaller i3 would be the cargo van, so we filled it with three suitcases and other smaller bags.
The idea for this series of articles came one night while discussing with Zach (Director of CleanTechnica) my upcoming trip to the Northeast of the USA to visit relatives, he asked me…
Subaru is getting ready to dip a toe into the market for electric cars. It needs to if it wants to continue selling it products in places like China with strict efficiency and emissions rules.
The head of global product development at GM, Mark Reuss, was recently quoted as saying that the company was aiming to be the first auto manufacturer to sell an affordable electric vehicle that makes a profit.
The Y Combinator–backed startup OSVehicle has revealed what it claims to be the first modular “ready-to-use self-driving EV” product out there. It is a “white label” product (any branding is fine) and various design cues can be implemented.
Elon Musk tweeted that production of the Tesla Model 3 is expected to begin in July and a new software update for cars with the second generation hardware package would arrive in June. Read on for more Twitter tidbits.
Opel has 4,000 orders for the Ampera E, the European version of the Chevy Bolt. On May 17, the first three were delivered to their new owners. It is no coincidence that they were finished in red, white, and blue.
How much range do people need? Various studies have jumped into this topic, but I don’t recall seeing anyone survey electric car drivers themselves. So, in our new 93-page electric car driver report, we asked different types of EV drivers across two continents what their range requirements and expectations were for their next EVs.
One of the main reasons that many car buyers have been reluctant to buy all-electric vehicles is quite simple — traveling long distances in one is generally quite time consuming and inconvenient. This is mostly owing to the dearth of electric vehicle superfast-charging stations and the low range of many of the offerings out there now.
Electric supercars seem to be coming into fashion, going by the auto industry news cycle as of late. The newest bit of information supporting that assertion is the news that an all-electric supercar named the “Elextra” is being developed that will possess a combined (both electric motors) output of 670 horsepower.
