Electric Car Sales In Emerging EV Markets — Chapter 1: Africa

November 24th, 2018 | by Jose Pontes

While EV adoption is fairly well documented in North America, Europe, and Asia, other geographies have been mostly or entirely absent from the media coverage — like Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. While electric vehicles in most countries in these areas are still something for the future, there are some interesting cases that deserve special mention. As such, I have split this topic in three chapters — one for Africa, the second for the Middle East, and the third for Latin America. Here, I am covering chapter 1, Africa


What Are The Cheapest All-Electric Cars Available? Comparisons & Thoughts

January 29th, 2018 | by James Ayre

We recently published an article discussing the fastest and the quickest plug-in electric cars on the market. One of the commentators on the article noted that such information wasn't relevant to most people, and that he would rather read an article comparing the details of the least expensive electric vehicles out there, not the most expensive


Scoot’s New Mobility Operating System

March 12th, 2017 | by Roy L Hales

Compared to the 10 million miles that the city's vehicles travel every day, Scoot's penetration into the San Francisco market is still relatively small. The 800 vehicles in its shared light electric vehicle (LEV) fleet have covered 2 million miles since 2012. Scoot CEO Michael Keating admitted in an email sent my way that, even combining their statistics with those of Zipcar, Bay Area Bikeshare, and Uber, you would probably not reach 5% of the total volume. But the market is growing fast


Cities Are Changing, From A To B With Eli ZERO

February 21st, 2017 | by Cynthia Shahan

Eli ZERO is a coming electric solution for getting around the city. Advertised as "the new A to B," the electric vehicle (EV) is a stylistic offering similar to the Renault Twizy, very similar. However, it also has some clear improvements over the Twizy. The creators see the Eli ZERO as a solution to agile movement around town (and parking in small spaces). The question is, "Is there room for it on the market?"


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


The 20 Electric Cars For Sale In The USA, Canada, &/Or Europe

January 3rd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

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


10 Best Electric Cars For The Money (Right Now)

December 7th, 2016 | by Zachary Shahan

Following my post on "10 Top Cleantech Christmas Gifts" and other recent discussions, I thought it made sense to write an article on what I think are the "best electric cars for the money" right now. Naturally, this is a subjective top 10 list. Because of the difficulty in comparing some models and the subjective nature of the list, I'm not ranking these 10 — these are just, overall, the 10 electric cars that I think offer the best value for the money


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
