The famed car designer, Henrik Fisker, has had some rough bumps along the way. Not going to talk about those here. I am going to talk about the fact that he isn’t giving up. Fisker’s latest electric vehicle (EV) the EMotion has a “theoretical” 400 mile range and a top speed of 161 mph.

Some cool features of this concept...

Mercedes Benz plans to release their own all-electric car as a B-Class.  The car skips right over the hybrid style and runs purely on electricity.  We can expect to see the Mercedes B-Class in the USA at the beginning of 2014.  Read on for details of the electric B-Class after the break,

"Cue the pundits. Nissan’s incoming Leaf has just nabbed an official EPA sticker, with a mind-melting 99MPG “equivalent” rating set to grace every single window. That’ll undoubtedly catch eyes, but it’s also likely to spur a huge debate on what “miles per gallon” truly means when you’re throwing a battery into...

It looks like an unlikely restaurant, McDonald’s, will start deploying electric car charging stations at a few of its restaurants. (Full disclosure… I like anything that moves electric cars in to the now, still waiting for my Aptera)...

I have said it before… I will say it again “someday we will all drive electric cars”.  I may be wrong… but I doubt it.  Mitsubishi is hedging their bets with their latest electric car, the i...

We love the Tesla all electric car, but the price and deliverable times make them unpractical… so, when we saw “The Amp”...
