Volkswagen presented the e-Golf battery electric car as a police emergency vehicle at an exhibition this week. Though it wouldn’t last long in a high-speed chase, the e-Golf would be quite a stealthy cop car.
As the debate over autonomous driving rages on, Tesla is doing its best to catch up to rival automakers in developing self-driving cars. New comments from CEO Elon Musk shed more light on the company’s plans.
After ending its collaboration with Tesla on the RAV4 EV and repeatedly declaring its allegiance to fuel cells, it certainly doesn’t seem like Toyota is interested in another partnership with Tesla. Not so fast, says Elon Musk.
The economic incentive package dangled in front of Tesla for constructing the Gigafactory in Reno, Nevada is more generous than many expected. Yet there is another more important reason Nevada was chosen.
Despite the media and fan-boy hype, Tesla has dropped to 5th in monthly US electric vehicle sales rate. This time, the car to pass it is indeed stealing customers from the Tesla Model S' target demographic.
The Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt have been duking it out for the title of best-selling plug-in since their nearly simultaneous debuts. The LEAF has recently claimed dominance, but both had a great month of August.
The Chinese government has been very aggressive with policies and incentives encouraging the adoption of electric vehicles, to little effect thus far. A new $16 billion charging station rollout initiative could fix that.
As summer draws to a close, motorcycle sales tend to slow down. In response, dealers often clear out old inventory by offering great deals. Brammo and its electric motorcycles evidently is no exception.
The finish line is not yet in sight in the race for a drastic lithium-ion battery breakthrough, and many competitors claim to be in the running. The latest company to emerge from the shadows is a University of Michigan spin-off called Sakti3. Should we remember the name?
The importance of electric vehicle adoption goes beyond U.S. shores – after all, replacing a conventional vehicle with an EV has a similar effect in most parts of the world. Germany and the UK are two markets in the sights of electric vehicle makers.
Earlier this week we looked at how the Environmental Protection Agency tests battery electric vehicles to determine the electric range that gets reported on the window sticker. But why is there just one number?
A new study brings an old topic back to the forefront: how much range is enough, and is it better to use battery advancements to decrease price without improving range or make electric vehicles go further on a charge?
One of the most important factors in the consideration of battery electric vehicles is driving range before the battery is fully discharged. The EPA calculates this number using procedures unique to electric vehicles – here is how it works.
