  • The 2018 Toyota Prius Prime provides an EV-only range of 25 miles thanks to its 8.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

That's impressive and so is the versatility of the Prius's well-known hatchback design. However, the Prius Prime is strictly a four-passenger vehicle.

  • The 2018 Nissan LEAF Is a Placeholder for a Longer-Range Version Coming Next Year
    It was clear from the beginning—presumably even to Nissan—that the improvements would not be enough to close the deal for most U.S. consumers. Not when EV buyers have better options like the 238-mile Chevrolet Bolt and Tesla’s long-range EVs.


  • Tesla’s $7,500 Tax Credit Will Start To Phase Out in 2019
    Tesla confirmed today that it delivered 200,000 electric cars to buyers in the United States, the first automaker to reach that level of sales. The milestone is a mixed blessing because it means that the $7,500 federal EV tax credit available to Tesla customers will be reduced by 50 percent in six months—and continue to diminish to zero by about January 2020.


  • The Prolonged Wait for Volkswagen Electric Vehicles
    The UK’s Autocar website reported this week that Volkswagen could introduce an all-electric four-door version of its iconic Beetle. The model, if given the green light, would use Volkswagen’s MEB electric-vehicle architecture, the underpinning of an entire line of VW EVs going into production as soon as next year. VW design boss Klaus Bischoff said the company will focus first on electric cars with the highest potential for sales in the next year or two—before deciding on an electric Beetle. Volkswagen continues to garner headlines for concept and one-off electric vehicles while remaining a marginal player in the current EV market.
