When I wrote about UK renewables seeing record-setting production, I noted the slight downside that transport-related emissions were up slightly. But here’s the thing: I would much rather see the grid get greener first, because even if transport-related emissions are […]

We already know that 84% of new buses will be electric by 2030, which should bode well for inner city air quality. But—just like electric cars—the emissions produced in the generation of electricity need to be taken into account too. […]

When Tesla announced that it had built 7,000 cars in a week, I got excited. Even though electric vehicles (EVs) make up only a small percentage of new car sales in most countries, those sales are growing rapidly. But how […]

When Tesla first unveiled their (more) affordable Model 3 electric car, many industry watchers—including our famously car-skeptic Lloyd—declared it a rather remarkable achievement: “The Whole world will want this car.” But with so many people making reservations long before they […]

Via: TreeHugger

When I recently misjudged my range driving out of the mountains of North Carolina, I was not exactly calm. But as a driver of two different plug-in vehicles, I can say that the genuinely quiet ride and smooth, linear throttle […]
