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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
What’s the fastest electric car on the market? I think you can guess, but what about #2–17? First of all, let’s get a little perspective in here. A car’s quickness is generally rated by how fast it goes from o mph to 60 mph (or 0 km/h to 100 km/h outside of the USA and a […]

These days nearly every automaker offers a hybrid of one kind or another, from simple family sedans to hypercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder. Hybrid car technology is changing the way we look at performance, and […]
Is the Volkswagen Golf GTE as fast, if not faster than, the much-lauded Golf GTI? A new video purports to show the two cars are closer than VW might like.
The Volkswagen Golf GTE is exactly what I was hoping for; a performance-oriented plug-in hybrid that lets you go fast without the gas-guzzling guilt.
A planned performance plug-in hybrid called the the Volkswagen Golf GTE could inject so much-needed fun into the hybrid class of cars.
