America’s most popular EV has just received it’s first redesign featuring a more mainstream look, a bump to 150 miles of range and more standard equipment. For 2019 Nissan has announced the Leaf will get another range bump with thanks to a bigger battery for “over 200 miles” of EV range to compete directly with […]
The Stinger is officially the best car I drove in 2017. Not because it’s the best handling, or fastest car, or most luxurious car I drove last year but because the Stinger raises the bar for affordable performance vehicles.
