With the lease on our 2016 Soul EV coming to an end it was time to find a suitable replacement. I really wanted to keep the Model 3 but the trunk is just a little too small (I’d take a Model Y if I’m honest) so we decided to go in a different direction and […]

Our “real world range test” has never caused more than a murmur before, but it caused a firestorm (not too surprising) when we reviewing the Model 3 Standard Range Plus. The car’s EPA score is 133 MPGe and 240 miles of range… but in our real world test we got a score of 192 miles […]
Kia and Hyundai haven’t focused too much on green-cred in the past but that’s all changing with an onslaught of new EVs, hybrids and plug-ins. Between 2016 and 2020 they have promised the launch of a combined 28 green vehicles including several long range EVs. The 2019 Kia Niro EV (known as the eNiro in […]
There have been so many questions and misinformation roaming around out there about the so-called “Model 3 Standard Range” vs the “Standard Range Plus” and whether or not the 220/240 mile range quoted is overly optimistic.

It’s here! The Standard Range Model 3 Arrived! Well, OK, so it’s a Standard Range Plus with a $35,000 price tag. I’m actually oddly fine with that twist to this story. In this two-part video we’ll explore the Model 3 and compare it to a few EVs and other luxury cars! Let’s dive in!
Hyundai’s Nexo isn’t the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in America but it is the first H2 car that actually makes sense. It’s attractive (IMHO), does up to 380 miles on a tank and has about the same room inside as the average mid-sized gasoline crossover. Of course the “chicken and egg” problem is ever […]
