EV Review - i-MiEV Part 1
EV Review. Our Electric Vehicle review team Bruce & Eric will test drive and review Electric Vehicles as they become available in Australia.
This review site also assumes the viewer has moved on from all the classic myths about why EVs are bad for the earth and is just a passing fancy. For those sharing such views there are plenty of forums and TV series such as Top Gear that will reinforce stereotype views of the larger commercial motoring industry supporting faster and higher speed transport or better "Off Road" hardware. We are talking about simple point "A" to point "B" comfortable transport in a mechanically simplified vehicle largely recharged form renewable energy sources such as the solar panels mounted on our houses. We also support pure simple state of the art battery plug-in technology over complex hybrid vehicle technology.
This is Part 1 of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV review.

The Mitsubishi iMiEV is one of those cars that gets thrown into the bunch when it comes to electric cars.
One of the main reasons for this is because it has two near identical siblings, the Citroen C-Zero and the Peugeot IOn.
But the iMiEV is still one of the key competitors in the EV race as it offers zero tailgate emissions and many other practical city going credentials.
We take the Mitsubishi iMiEV on the road to see what it can do.

Electric Vehicle Hits and Misses - Autoline This Week 1647
They arrived with such fanfare a couple years back, that you'd have thought we'd all be driving electrics by now but that's not the case. In fact, even today some manufacturers are reticent to even offer an electric option. But that hasn't stopped everyone from the biggest OEMs to the single car startups from designing and building all-electric cars. On Autoline This Week John McElroy and his panel look at the world of electric cars, if there's a want, a need or a business case to be made for their existence. Joining John in studio is Csaba Csere, the former Editor-in-Chief of Car & Driver magazine and Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics. Get more video everyday at http://autoline.tv

TESLA MODEL S REVIEW: part 1
I normally HATE Electric Vehicles (EV), because of the cramped interiors, the range anxiety issues and the lack of performance (Fisker Karma for Example), but the Tesla Model S could be the EV that makes a LOVER out of me. Stay tuned for my test drive video and written review!
Batteries offer greater range than those of other electric cars; svelte styling; smooth handling; quick 0-60 acceleration; available seven-passenger utility; reasonable luxury-class base price.
Options add up quickly to over $100,000; unknown reliability; third-row jump seats are extremely cramped and cost lots of cargo area when in use.
