Electric Cars That Most Excite Potential Electric Car Buyers

In our 4th article pulled from Electric Cars: What Early Adopters & First Followers Want — a new report from CleanTechnica, EV Obsession, and GAS2 — I’m jumping into which electric car models respondents were most likely to buy and most excited, as well as some implications regarding certain car companies. Without surprise, current EV ownership matched historical EV sales fairly well — 33.9% […]

BMW i8 Sales Jump 2233% In US*

Via EV Obsession: Well, let’s be honest, August was a lame sales month for electric car lovers. There are clear reasons for this. Historically, the two highest-selling electric cars in the US have been the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt. The 2nd-generation Chevy Volt, much improved and even a little cheaper, is just hitting the […]

Tesla Model S #1, Chevy Volt #2, Nissan LEAF #3 In July US Electric Car Sales

Originally published on EV Obsession. Well, that was a crappy month… if you’re an electric car fan. Almost across the board, US electric car sales were down in July 2015 compared to July 2014. However, three models were up — the Tesla Model S ($75,000), the Mercedes B-Class Electric ($41,450), and the BMW i3 (42,400). […]

EV Owner & Lessee Survey (If You Drive Electric, Complete This!)

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 […]

The Fiat 500e electric vehicle can be purchased outright for $32,500, or leased for a minimum of $199 per month for 36 months with $999 down in the state of California.

2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid Debuts With 100 MPGe

Last week, Honda pulled the covers off of the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid, and perhaps some people wish they would have left it on. While it may not be the prettiest belle at the ball, the Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid does offer some impressive numbers that will make it a real contender in the marketplace. Chief among those numbers, an estimated 100 MPGe rating, as well as a pure-electric range that is competitive with its rivals.

Review: I’m Addicted To Sport Mode On The New Honda Fit EV

Honda invited us to preview the Fit EV at a special test track in Southern California. Specifically, a nice little course they’d set up in a parking lot at the Rose Bowl, as well as a spin around the ‘hood on our own. Because I don’t like having to reign in my driving style to keep from terrorizing the poor sales rep, I generally avoid doing test drives. But this test drive was set up to enable us to really drive the cars the way we normally would..and then some.

L.A. Auto Show: The Rundown

I made it back to the East Coast in one piece (despite filling up another few barf bags….I hate flying) and even though I haven’t had a chance to fully recharge my human batteries, I’m back to the grind already. Let’s start the day off with a wrap-up of the sustainable sights from the 2011 […]
