Renault Zoe 50 — Finally Ready To Deliver On Its Promise

June 17th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

Two years ago I thought the long wait for the Renault-Nissan Alliance was over. There was a new Zoe40 launched just before the Chevy Bolt came to market, and a new Leaf coming that summer.

June 7th, 2019 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

After a long history of falling down, struggling, and getting up again, followed by a failed merger with Daimler AG, there was nobody willing to help rescue Chrysler after the 2008 crises. That is, until the nearly broke and also struggling Italian FIAT Group dressed in its best white knight suit and showed willingness to try it

May 18th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Oil-bought politicians, Tesla shorts, online trolls, and others with an axe to grind against EVs are always telling us things like “EVs are toys for the rich” — whenever convenient to their arguments. While it’s true that top-of-the-line Tesla vehicles are well over $100,000, there’s a small independent dealer in conservative Arizona proving that not only can EVs be affordable, but they are good for business!
