I’ve been long planning to do an EV owner and lessee survey like this, so I am super eager to see the results. (I’m going to have a hard time not watching them obsessively as they come in.) But the key, of course, is getting EV owners and lessees to complete the survey. If you drive […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. I love looking at the Dutch, French, German, and Norwegian electric car sales data, but looking at the bigger European picture is where the real fun is.

Hybrids, electric cars, and the smaller models like the Honda Civic, Ford Fiesta, and Hyundai Elantra are helping to keep personal fuel consumption down, but Americans are still looking for new ways to save at the pump. We already wrote about getting 76 mpgs, so what if you could get over 100 mpg? Well, with the hybrid air car inventors say it may be possible.
Earlier this year, two teams of electric car drivers took off in a competition to be the first EV drivers to circumnavigate the globe. Alas, the Tesla Roadster driven by Rafael de Mestre crashed just 600 miles, and a few days short of the finish line, leaving the much-slower team of two French engineers the chance to catch up.
