Volvo’s income of plug-in styles are gaining momentum, and Polestar is introducing a referral method, but it’s not so Tesla-like. The California drought has a clean up-air charge. And we push Lincoln’s not-so-electric powered plug-in hybrid. This and far more, here at Green Car or truck Experiences.
The EVs have not however arrived for Ford’s Lincoln luxurious brand name, but we lately drove the future closest detail: its Corsair Grand Touring plug-in hybrid. In a evaluation of the Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring, we found its approach to embracing the electrical side far from overt—but with some remarkable numbers for hybrid fuel mileage and electric miles.
According to a modern report from the Electricity Data Administration (EIA), the extended drought in California will boost the carbon price of the electrical power that EVs plug into. About 15% of the state’s electric power arrives from hydropower with usual amounts of precipitation, but that shrinks to 8% in a drought yr.
Volvo has been on a roll with its plug-in vehicles. Nationwide, its plug-in Recharge models—EVs and plug-in hybrids combined—topped 35% of its U.S. revenue. And in California a few out of 4 Volvos marketed now have charge ports.
Polestar is rolling out a referral plan for its EVs. But really don’t count on anything close to the $1,000 incentives and no cost cars and trucks for top rated referrers that Tesla after doled out.
