With the CR-V in the body shop I needed a ride, and Mazda delivered with a 41 MPG Mazda 3 sedan. What did I think of the sporty 4 door? Find out …

Despite being discussed for several years, and slated for a big reveal early next year, we still don’t know all that much about the Tesla Model III. The only things we know for sure is that it will start around $35,000 before tax credits, and have at least 200 miles of “real world” driving range, […]
Minis are great cars, but people with growing families tend to need- well, a car that’s not so mini. Enter the new for 2015 Mini 5 Door, with 5 full doors.
Chrysler Fiat laid out its five-year plan for reporters today, and the highlight for us is an upcoming plug-in hybrid minivan and Chrysler 200 sedan.
It’s at least two years away, but there’s already rampant speculation about the whys, whats, and hows of the new “entry-level” 2016 Tesla Model E sedan.
The Mitsubishi Mirage is the highest MPG new car you can buy in the US that’s not a hybrid. It’s also affordable, well-built, reasonably equipped, carries one of the best warranties in the business, and is (as I discovered back in October) stupid fun to blast around town in. The MPG thing is really just […]
he 2015 Lexus RC300h hybrid coupe was first shown at last year’s Tokyo Auto Show, but it arrived at NAIAS 2014 w/ a V8 powered brother- and they look good!
LOS ANGELES, California, November 22, 2013 (ENS) – The Honda Accord has been chosen as the Green Car of the Year® 2014, but this year the award goes not to just one model but three: the Accord, Accord Hybrid, and Accord Plug-In Hybrid. “Green Car…
Toyota is set to launch its newest Lexus hybrid at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. Called the RC300h and based on the compact Lexus IS sports sedan, the RC300h “sport hybrid” promises sporty, RWD handling in a curvaceous coupe body meant to take on BMW’s upcoming 4 series coupes and convertibles and the new Acura […]
The new Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, the flagship of the Acura llineup, will be on display at the Los Angeles International Auto Show after November 20.
The new for 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid goes on sale today, with a reasonable pricetag, a 50 MPG EPA rating, an almost impossibly low-emissions 4 cylinder engine, a torquey electric motor, and withOUT a conventional transmission. As I mentioned in my initial review of Honda’s 50 MPG Accord Hybrid earlier this month, this new Honda […]
When we first covered the Stella solar racer you see here, we talked about its designers’ goal to build a solar-powered car that had some real-world practicality. Seating for four adults, cargo capacity, a passable top speed (approaching 50 mph), and a usable range. With all those things, and a range of 370+ miles on […]
Here it is, the revolutionary new for 2014, 50 MPG Accord Hybrid. Before we get too far into my driving impressions of the car, though, I want to make a few things clear. First, the new Accord hybrid is a revelation. Second, In-n-Out Burger is seriously overrated. It’s all about the vastly superior Whataburger, and […]
I went to a recent Honda hosted event in San Antonio and compared the new accord to the 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It seemed nice enough, then I threw up.
The first new Saab of the NEVS era rolled off the company’s Trollhätten assembly line last week, but the new Saab ePower EVs won’t hit the road until 2015.
After years of rumors and speculations of the will they/won’t they variety, a brand-new Saab 9-3 has – finally! – managed to roll down the assembly line! Don’t be fooled by the fact that this new Saab looks just like the 2009 models the company was building when it was spun off from GM’s bankruptcy, […]
Imagine a solar-powered electric car with room for 4 (four) adults and their luggage that has a full-charge operating range of more than 300 miles that can re-charge itself in a parking space without the need for a charging station. It’s here – and it’s called the Stella!
After winning enough awards to fill a large trophy case, the Tesla Model S continues to be not just the best electric car on the road, but perhaps the best car you can buy, period, according to Consumer Reports. So how did they arrive at that conclusion? Oh, you know, just a little drifting.
The big news last week was the return of Detroit Electric, which is launching later on this year with the SP:01, an all-electric supercar based on the Lotus Elise. Sounds familiar, right? But Detroit Electric promise it isn’t just a Tesla Motors copycat, and the newly-resurrected company is pledging to have both a pure-electric sedan and hatchback on sale by the end of 2014. The question is…how?
Would you buy an electric car if you didn’t know the price of a replacement battery? What if you knew what the price would be – maybe – in about 8 years? Those are some of the questions electric car-maker Tesla is hoping will get lots of “yes” answers. Tesla is offering replacement battery packs […]
