I’ve been an advocate for EVs since restoring a 1994 USElecticar Chevy S-10 in 2009. I’ll admit my time horizon for wide adoption of EVs at that time was decades out. Little did I realize that […]

Nissan has now received more than 9,000 orders for the new, refreshed all-electric LEAF in Japan, a senior exec revealed on Wednesday at the Tokyo Motor Show. That figure apparently represents demand well above expectations, according […]
I have a 1st-gen BMW i3 in my driveway. No range extender. Just barely 100 miles of available range. And I desperately needed to go to the IAA Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung in Frankfurt, Germany, due to the impressive number […]
Cost Of Tesla Cars Varies Dramatically — Overview Of Tesla Model S, Tesla Model X, & Tesla Model 3 Pricing
One thing that I’ve noticed about mainstream media coverage of the electric car pioneer Tesla Motors in recent years is that pricing for the company’s products is often misquoted. It’s hard to say just how much […]
Karma Automotive has officially begun delivering the first Karma Revero plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) to its dealerships in the US, according to recent reports.
Many electric vehicle designers felt the need to stand out, to create a design that flies a bold flag to everyone around that proclaims “I’m modern and different!” While this is great for individuals or businesses looking to make a bold proclamation, most people are looking for a car that looks normal, that drives like a normal car with cool features inside that make day-to-day life just a little bit easier.
The Chinese market had 6,260 new EVs registered in January, far from the 15,275 units of January 2016, dragging down the plug-in market share (of new cars sold) to just 0.25% — far below the 1.45% of […]
US electric car sales continue to climb to new heights in 2017. Growing 59% year over year (YoY), approximately 12,000 electric cars were sold across the country in January, accounting for approximately 1% of US auto sales.
A guy walks into a local Chevy dealer. Says, “Hey, you guys got any Bolts? That’s Bolt, with a B.” In return, the guy receives blank stares from the sales staff … replaced shortly by smiles, a negatory on the Bolt, and a verbal rundown of all the great models on the lot the guy would just love, such as the Cruze, the Sonic, the Malibu, and yes, the Volt. The Spark went unmentioned.
Back in August 2014, I polled CleanTechnica readers on when an electric car would break into the top 20 of US car sales. The specific question was, “When will a plug-in car break into the top 20 of monthly US car sales?”
Also published on CleanTechnica and our Electric Car Sales page. The Chinese market had 44,874 new electric cars in December, far from the 60,000 expected by analysts, but still up 27% year over year (YoY) and far more […]
The EV market as a whole saw 30% growth for 2016 (compared to 2016) and 51% for December 2016 (compared to December 2015), which would be great for normal cars but may seem a bit weak on the surface for those of us who know how fast EV sales should and could be growing. But remember that 2016 was more of a prep year than a breakout year. This year (2017) and next (2018) are likely to be the big breakout years, thanks to the real arrival of the Chevy Bolt and the expected arrival of the Tesla Model 3.
Despite all of the pro-Bolt comments and reporting at the time, it seems that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak’s enthusiastic test drive of a 2017 Chevy Bolt EV back in September didn’t lead to him purchasing one. […]
While it’s very likely to simply be a matter of the company looking to protect itself from potential lawsuits down the road, the Chevy Bolt EV owner’s manual section on battery degradation and range loss raises […]
