Pros and Cons of an Everyday Electric SUV

Pros

  • Impressive EV range
  • Dynamic performance
  • Spacious packaging

Cons

  • Iffy build quality
  • Steam-bath sun panel
  • Ground clearance

The Tesla Model Y is not MotorTrend’s 2021 SUV of the Year. Nor is it a finalist for the award, or even a contender. Despite our repeated entreaties, Tesla declined to participate in the competition. In order to bring you this review, we rented a privately owned Model Y and evaluated it against our award criteria, but we respected Tesla’s desire not to be considered for our Golden Calipers.

Despite this setback, we feel the Model Y is a significant vehicle for Tesla, for the industry, and for the consumer—and thus it deserves to be evaluated. Richard Hak at Precision One Design in Torrance, California, agreed to rent us his low-mileage 2020 Tesla Model Y Dual Motor Long Range to do so. We found the Model Y scores very well against our six

Tesla Model 3 Price Too High? Dirt-Cheap Used Electric Cars Can Be Good Deals

The used EV has arrived.

It was only nine years ago that the first won’t-break-the-bank electric cars arrived.

Those non-Tesla EVs — like the Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt — weren’t priced at $80,000 like the Model S and the first- and second- generations of those cars have been hitting the used car market over the last several years.

And with a Long Range 2020 Tesla Model 3 starting at about $47,000, “dirt cheap” for an EV is anything under $20,000.

A couple of the better sites for used EVs are MYEV and CarGurus.

Most of the used EVs cited below are first- and second-generation electrics that were sold roughly between 2011 and 2017.

Note: all prices are based on a used vehicle

Vintage Electric E-Bikes Review | Big power and retro style without the sweat or spandex

See Full Image Gallery >>

Portland is the only city in the continental United States with a volcano within its city limits. It’s called Mount Tabor, and although technically a mere “extinct volcanic vent,” walking or hiking up to the top of its roughly 440 feet is still a decent workout. Those who bike up it are typically spandex-clad Lance Armstrong types or casual cycling sadists content to chug up at 3 mph. I, on the other hand, pedaled up Mount Tabor at 20 mph. No huffing, no puffing, no sweat, no spandex.

That’s because I was riding a Vintage Electric Café electric pedal-assist bicycle, and after a summer spent zipping around town without the typical cycling concerns of hills, going too damn slow and showing up to your destination drenched, I’m thoroughly sold on electric assist bicycles as a concept. And as for the Café itself, it takes that

At least three children have been hospitalized after their fingers were injured by a Muller fan, with one losing a finger to the fan’s blades.

The father of one three-year-old boy related how, in a busy moment just before the Sukkot festival, his son stuck his fingers between the metal mesh of the finger guard. The whirling metal blades literally sliced off his son’s finger. Then, in hospital, he met the parents of other children who had suffered similar injuries.

“This fan has stainless-steel blades and the product insert says that the mesh is especially dense for ‘maximum safety,’” one father related. “My son had to be taken to Tel Hashomer hospital and underwent an operation to reattach his finger. We found two other families there with children with injuries from Muller fans. One little boy suffered a deep cut and had

Honda has taken a new electric vehicle concept to the Beijing motor show, which previews a future model that is currently only earmarked for sale in China.

The Honda SUV e:concept has been designed to show off the future design direction of the production electric SUV model, which is likely to keep the clean surfaces and sharp angles present on the concept.

The Japanese firm says it wants its EV to be ‘fresh and fun’, and will equip it with next-generation safety systems and driver assistance features. Inside, it will preview advancements in the infotainment system, including an artificial intelligence interface, smartphone link and wireless updates.
