47 CleanTechnica Electric Vehicle Review Articles In 2017

December 25th, 2017 by  

We’ve been conducting electric vehicle reviews for years, but we really stepped it up in 2017. Much thanks in particular is owed to Kyle Field and Nicolas Zart, both of who have written a ton of EV review articles this year. Thanks are also due to Cynthia Shahan, Steve Hanley, Jose Pontes, and several guest contributors and less frequent writers who have also contributed articles. And I’ve admittedly been having fun with a long-term review of the Tesla Model S, which began around the time Kyle’s ended.

Below is a rundown of 47 review articles of 24 electric vehicles CleanTechnica has reviewed in the past year or so. There are also links to the archives for our two long-term EV model reviews, and there are 6 non-EV reviews on the bottom, since we do review a few cleantech products other than electric vehicles.

We hope you enjoy these and have gotten as much use from them as we have!
