The Damage Fake Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles Do

March 18th, 2018 | by Maarten Vinkhuyzen

The search for cleaner and more efficient transportation has resulted in a multitude of solutions. Ways to make the internal combustion engine powertrain more efficient, replacing the fuel with alternate fuels like LPG and LNG, synthetic fuels to mix with the fossil fuels, and, ultimately, replacing the internal combustion engine (ICE) completely are all options on the table


Most Energy Efficient Cars For Sale In USA

January 7th, 2018 | by James Ayre

As just noted in the first part of this two-part series, we decided to take a look at the most fuel efficient (i.e., gas efficient) cars on the market in the US (that article) and then take a look at the most energy efficient cars in the USA (this article). There are both similarities and differences that stood out after doing so, but there's basically one key take-home point. We also came away with some automotive suggestions for buyers with different needs. Without further to do, let's jump in

After switching cars in the morning, leaving the Nissan Leaf and picking up the blue BMW i3 REx, we prepared for the trip to Connecticut. As there would be more than one car travelling, the smaller i3 would be the cargo van, so we filled it with three suitcases and other smaller bags


Europe’s Best-Selling Electric Car = Renault Zoe

February 3rd, 2017 | by Jose Pontes

The European EV market had approximately 30,000 registrations last month, down 11% over the same month last year. This sales slip, however, had to do with the incentives-derived sales rush of the last quarter of


BMW i3 = #1 In Europe In November, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV = #1 Jan–Nov 2016

December 30th, 2016 | by Jose Pontes

The European EV market had more than 18,500 registrations last month, 5% down over the same month last year. This sales slip has to do with the incentives-derived sales rush in the last quarter of 2015 in some major EV markets, so expect this trend to continue through December. Last month, the top spots remained more or less like in October


BMW = New Top Dog In European Electric Car Sales

November 27th, 2016 | by Jose Pontes

The European electric car market had more than 17,000 registrations last month, 1% down compared to October 2015. This sales slip surely has to do with the incentives-derived sales rush in the last quarter of 2015, so expect this trend to continue throughout the end of this year. In October, we saw a balanced ranking in the top spots
