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 […]

Germany Electric Car Sales Topped By German Car Companies In July

Originally published on EV Obsession. It’s no surprise to see that German car companies continue to top the electric car sales table in Germany, but after test driving the Audi A3 e-tron myself, I have to admit that I’m surprised to see it and its almost identical cousin, the Volkswagen Golf GTE, topping the tables. The […]

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV = 95% of All Outlander Sales, 39% of Mitsubishi Sales in Netherlands

Originally published on EV Obsession. Well, the Netherlands is certainly turning out to be one of the most interesting electric vehicle markets in the world. It is #2 in terms of electric cars’ percentage of total new car sales, but the cars leading the pack keep changing. The Dutch plug-in hybrid fetish is apparently as strong […]

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 […]

2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV Coming In March

Most people don’t realize there was no Mitsubishi i-MiEV in 2015. There wasn’t one in 2013 either. The car has gotten very little attention from the parent company, even though it is the lowest priced pure battery car sold in America. Whether the car is not up to expectations or whether Mitsubishi has failed to […]

Mitsubishi To Debut Plug-In Hybrid Diesel Pickup At Geneva

As of right now, the most fuel efficient pickup in America is the V6-powered Ram 1500, and the only hybrid pickup is the 2013 Chevy Silverado, which has a $40,000 price tag. So it’s safe to say the market for fuel efficient trucks is definitely wide open. So why Mitsubishi chose Geneva as the place to debut a hybrid-diesel pickup concept, we don’t know, but it sounds like the truck that America desperately needs.

Mitsubishi i EV: The One Sentence Review

Though I often write about electric vehicles, my opportunities to drive them have mostly been limited to car shows and special events. That all changed a couple of weeks ago when I was given three full days to test out Mitsubishi’s entry into the EV market. Known around the world as the i-Miev, here in America it will be called simply the “Mitsubishi i,” and it currently represents the most affordable EV on the market that isn’t a go kart.

But only just. Read on for the rest of my “one-sentence” review.
