On a little stretch of road in Sweden, cables have been strung up about 18 feet over the asphalt to feed trucks with electricity. While connected, the trucks will run off the grid instead of their own engines.
The U.S. military has been talking about “stealth motorcycles” for years. As of this month, two tech outfits have what seem to be viable prototypes that will both be funded for another revision.
The 2017 BMW i3 will be available with a new 33 kWh battery, increasing the car’s max pure-electric range to 114 miles. That’s a 50 percent battery bump translating to an extra 33 miles of drivable distance.
It turns out that 2016's best electric car-related Internet prank isn’t the Tesla Model 3 after all. (Don’t worry, you’ll be able to buy one someday. Really, you will.) It was this, the shockingly elaborate website for the Chevrolet Jolt, a car that is 100 percent not real.
Electric cars are on the rise, but there are still plenty of setbacks that come with the more environmentally conscious choice. Charging? Sounds like a long wait. No plug nearby? Too bad. That’s where the (fictional) Mercedes AA Class comes in, powered by AA batteries and free of any other worries. Well, kind of.
Tesla is finally taking the wraps off the Model 3, its first mass-market electric vehicle priced at an affordable $35,000. The car is expected to push EVs into the mainstream and reduce carbon emissions around the world. The only downside? Many cities don’t have enough charging stations to support widespread adoption…
California residents interested in electric vehicles should probably head out to the dealership this week, if they’re on the higher end of the income spectrum—starting March 29, the state’s rebate program for EVs will put an income cap on getting any money back at all.
The electric-car market is growing, but remains small. A majority of drivers still stop at the station regularly, filling up their gas-guzzling vehicles and allowing the oil industry to stay in business.

What you’re looking at is the Rasa from eco car startup called Riversimple Movement Ltd. It’s a two-seater fuel cell car with a range of up to 300 miles, and the Welsh government put almost $3 million of EU money in it. The idiots.
We’ll see an almost production-ready version of Morgan’s electric 3 Wheeler at the Geneva Motor Show, with the huge difference being that its motor is at the rear. Morgan’s first production EV goes on sale in the summer.
Morgan will spend $8.6 million in cooperation with the British government to go hybrid and electric starting in 2019. That should keep prices down while giving the small carmaker a chance to double its production figures through new markets.
Yes. This amazing thing is happening. It’s electric, it’s a four-seater cabriolet, and clearly, it’s a proper Citroën that will make the world a better place.
While the EPA is promising to toughen up emissions tests in the aftermath of the Volkswagen cheating scandal, Tesla founder Elon Musk has a slightly different take: Gas is dead and it’s time to go electric, people.
Everyone thinks Porsche’s Mission E could be the next electric Panamera. But it’s smaller than that, which means you might be looking at the next 911 instead despite the four doors. No luxurious rear seats, but speed and beauty this time with an exciting concept that we’re hoping hits the streets by 2019.
