Britain Has Twice As Many EV Chargers As EVs… Sort Of

Two years ago, the UK government rolled out a £400 million ($633 million) plug-in car incentive package that included £37 million ($58 million) to build EV charging stations across the small island nation.

10 Best Hybrid Cars

I’m working on a couple of pieces outside the news cycle this weekend — “Best Hybrid Cars” and “Best Electric Cars.” The pieces are ones that I’ve considered for a long time, but generally felt hesitant/unequipped to write, but I’m taking a plunge now.

Europe EV Sales Update (October Sales)

As always, let me note that these numbers are not official, comprehensive, or accurate. Nobody reports official, comprehensive EV sales numbers for Europe, and it’s even very hard to find a single country that comprehensively reports them. Nonetheless, Jose Pontes puts in a lot of work to track down EV sales numbers for a large number […]

Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Rises Above Range Estimate

Originally published on Gas2. By Steve Hanley Mitsubishi claims the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in (a plug-in hybrid SUV) has a driving range of 824 kilometers, or about 512 miles. But we all know such claims can fall short in real world driving, which is why Härkingen, the Swiss importer for Mitsubishi, decided to verify the factory’s numbers. Felix […]

Top Plug-in Vehicle In Germany Is… Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In?

I’ve deciphered KBA’s registration data enough that I actually feel comfortable reporting on Germany’s May plug-in registrations. Like it is with almost every country, there were still holes remaining in the data. For example, for models that have a gas version and an electric or plug-in hybrid electric version, it isn’t completely clear how many of the […]
