December 30th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

CleanTechnica has had the lucky opportunity to review a freakin' ton of electric vehicles this past year, and many more in previous years. In the article below, you can find links to most of the reviews as well as short snippets about the vehicles (and a few other products)


6 Months With My Electric Mercedes B250e

June 3rd, 2018 | by Reinhard Bimashofer

After 6 months with my electric Mercedes, it was of no use for us on 170 days. I like the car, but ... I’ll love to sell it as soon as autonomous service is available for us


9 Down, 1 To Go — A Personal Tale Of 7 Years With Electric Cars

January 14th, 2018 | by Jesper Berggreen

My lease is up. My BMW i3 — my snappy and ugly duckling — has been returned to AVIS. There was a waiting line, so no chance of extending the lease. I have a reservation for the Tesla Model 3 due to be delivered by the end of the year. So, while I ponder on what to do next, let me recap which EVs I have experienced in the last 7 years. Luckily I have a bunch of electric bikes (some hand-built) that I can ride in the meantime, and I promise you they are nothing you would expect — but that's another story


Every Plug-In Car Model Has A Selling Point

September 3rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

Not that long ago, only a few electric cars were on the market. Nowadays, there are a few dozen. We certainly have a few favorites here on CleanTechnica, but every plug-in car really has its own selling points. I'm sure I don't have a comprehensive list of these in my head, and many of the points are definitely as subjective as opinions about music or movies, but below are many of my thoughts on why I'd recommend various plug-in models


Zoe, Leaf, & i3 Lead The Crowd In Europe (Europe Electric Car Sales)

August 26th, 2017 | by Jose Pontes

The European plug-in car market started its usual holiday season in July, down almost a third compared to the previous month (summertime = lower sales). There were some 19,600 registrations. But that is still up 41% regarding the same month last year, so the growth trend continues. Year to date, the market is up 34% this year, with the EV share now standing at a record 1.6%


Mercedes Slashes Lease Cost of B250e Electric

May 10th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

Mercedes has cut lease prices for its 2016 and 2017 B250e electric vehicle in a course correction that hints at a broader electric vehicle strategy change within the company


The Rise Of The Stealth Plug-In (aka, The Day Plug-In Vehicles Went Mainstream)

February 18th, 2017 | by Kyle Field

It hit me for the first time on the highway driving into the middle of a tornado of traffic in the heart of Los Angeles. Cars cluttered the highway in no intelligible pattern, aimed in every direction except with the flow of traffic, the glare of brake lights turning the masses of metal into a blurred mess that felt more like hell than a highway


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

We've been rather discretely rolling out cleantech consumer buying guides, which we'll be continuously updating and improving as time goes on. The first resource page (found at products.cleantechnica.com) covers current electric cars for sale (or soon coming to market) in North America and Europe


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


Mercedes B250e Deconstructed In Fully Charged Video Review

December 20th, 2016 | by Kyle Field

The always entertaining Bobby Llewellyn of Fully Charged loves getting into new EVs and taking them out for a spin. This time, he's secured a Mercedes B250e. This is functionally the same car as my wife's Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive, which we have had for 2 years now — it has simply taken on the new B250e moniker to fit more seamlessly into the standard Mercedes naming convention


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


BMW i3 Wins September In Europe, But 2 Tesla Models In Top 5

November 1st, 2016 | by Jose Pontes

The European EV market had 24,000 registrations last month, up 47% over September last year, being not only the best month of the year but also the second best selling month ever, only behind highly inflated December 2015 (34,000 registrations). With the market set to surpass the 200,000 units (205K? 210K?) by year end, the EV share now stands north of the 1% frontier (1.1%)
