  • November electric car sales decline as customers await the new Leaf
    07 Dec 2017

    For those who prefer to purchase green cars, the arrival of the Tesla Model 3 and the new-generation Nissan Leaf electric vehicles can't come soon enough. U.S. sales of hybrids and plug-in vehicles last month fell from year-earlier totals, as Tesla customers awaited deliveries of the Model 3, whose 310-mile single-charge range was confirmed by the U.S. EPA last week, while Nissan was preparing to sell the 2018 model-year Leaf. November's domestic electric car sales, which had been up more than 8 percent through October, declined 1.9 percent to almost 39,000 units. Plug-in vehicle sales...

  • BMW forced to freeze sales after crash test concerns on its i3 models
    20 Nov 2017

    Every single i3 model sold by BMW in the U.S. is being recalled by the automaker, it has also been forced to freeze sales after crash test concerns.

Now, though, nobody will be able to buy them.  The problem comes down to seatbelt testing or, more accurately, what happens when someone isn’t wearing a seatbelt.

  • The internal combustion engine disappears from the new-car options
    08 Nov 2017

    The range of the average battery-electric family crossover has increased to nearly 400 miles on a single charge, after years of continued incremental improvements in lithium-based batteries, combined with extreme weight savings from lightweight materials, a new generation of superefficient electric motors, and advances in automated driving that reduce energy waste.  The new generation of fast chargers enables vehicles with depleted battery packs to be 80 percent recharged in the time it takes to down a cup of Tim Horton's coffee and doughnut, about five minutes. Even exotic sport...

  • Where will drivers recharge their EVs?
    30 Oct 2017

    If you want the growth of electric sales to happen, you need to provide customers with reliable public charging infrastructure. Today in the U.S. there are only 16,457 EV charging stations, with 44,999 outlets in operation, mostly on the coasts, but also including Tesla's network of Superchargers along major intercity corridors and other superfast charging stations. The presence and visibility of these stations should help build confidence among consumers thinking about buying battery EVs that they will be able to charge wherever they want.
