Say Bye-Bye to the Honda Fit EV

It’s wonderful, and sad, to see the Honda Fit EV be removed from the product line-up next year. We had a blast driving the Fit EV for a week last summer. The quirky, small EV — almost 20 inches longer than a Fiat 500e — was the perfect car for getting about both as an […]

Review: 2014 Cadillac ELR

The hysterical television ad for the Cadillac ELR luxury electric vehicle would have us believe this: “You work hard, you create your own luck, and you gotta believe anything is possible.” It’s also intended convince us that the mean-looking electric sedan is worth its $76,000 base sticker price.

eBay’s Market for Used Nissan Leafs Takes Off

Search on eBay, and you’ll find dozens of used 2011 Nissan Leaf electric cars priced around $15,000. That’s a great deal—less than half the original sticker price—on a battery-powered five-seat EV with a range of about 80 miles per charge. Three years ago, the earliest of electric car adopters were chomping at the bit to […]
