Volvo's XC90 T8 electric hybrid is supposed to get nearly 25-miles in EV-only mode.

2017 Honda Clarity will offer three types of electric-drive systems

Honda Clarity: Trio of E-Drive Options

Honda plans to offer customers a choice in power systems for its Clarity model line-up.

While it seems pretty obvious that at least 400,000 people worldwide are serious about buying a battery-powered Tesla Model 3, the large, long-established OEMs aren't yet convinced that electro-chemical batteries are the future of auto tech. They are hedging their bets: GM offering both the Volt electric hybrid and the Bolt, pure electric car...

Karma Renames Revero Electric Hybrid

The successor for bankrupt Fisker Automotive will reintroduce its luxury electric-hybrid with BMW technology and a new name.

It's a tale of two startups: Fisker and Tesla. The former would succumb to one disaster after another from battery fires to Superstorm Sandy. The latter would become the most recognized and sought-after electric car brand in the world. 400,000 people would put down $1000 deposits for the Tesla Model 3.

Is Our Situation Dire, or is it Over

By John Gilkison

How some Near Tern Human Extinction people are saying there is nothing we can do to fix the predicament we are in so we should stop trying. In this blog I am pointing how from a cost point of view alone we should not abandon the quest to switch to renewable energy, energy efficiency, and reducing our impact on the planet even if it will not make a difference in the end. Besides there is a philosophical component to at least acting like or trying to be a man even in our last hours.

It looks like “Abrupt Climate Change” has started kicking in with a vengeance in the last few years, but especially in 2016. On a television show originally aired in October of 2014 called the Newsroom, which is a dramatization of the news business they portrayed a newscaster interviewing a climate scientist who proclaimed our collective situation ...

There's more to mobility than making cars

By Ralph Panhuyzen

Since it does make sense to have a vision regarding the use of a particular mode of transportation, in other words to look before you leap (start making vehicles), I decided to post excerpts from 'City Of The Future - Technology & Mobility', which was issued last year by the Center For City Solutions & Applied Research. Much of what is stated is a confirmation of what I have been blogging. The gap between the car industry's 'transportation-as-a-product' business model and transportation-as-a-(community)service will narrow. Reduce footprint will be key.

When adjusted for population growth, VMT (vehicle miles traveled) is down 7.29 percent. We drive significantly less as a nation than we did 10 years ago, and that number is only likely to decline more. As more working adults choose to live in high-density and walkable areas where driving is not a necessity, and more modal options enter the transpor...

What An EV World Weekend!

By Bill Moore

While a 'gaggle' of open-wheel race cars are careening about the streets of central Paris, a solo pilot soars alone over the Pacific in a four-engined airplane; and what they all have in common is they all are battery-powered.

What an amazing weekend in our emerging EV world. While my wife and I were sprucing up our home with new greenery, some 4,500 miles away, Formula E, the FIA-sanctioned open wheel electric car racing series, took to the streets of Paris, France, testing and pushing the latest in EV propulsion technology.

Eighteen low-slung, all-electric r...
