2016 Chevy Volt, Fuel Cells Galore, LA Auto Show: The Week In Reverse (Video)

Follow John

Which automaker showed a plug-in hybrid concept car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell?

And what will the new 2016 Chevy Volt look like?

This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, November 21, 2014.

On Friday, we looked at long-distance riding on electric motorcycles, specifically a Southern California biker group that regularly rides a dozen or more electric bikes through the curving canyon roads.

You might call them the biker gang you'll never hear coming.

Thursday, our big story was the styling of the all-new 2016 Chevy Volt range-extended electric car--which we got another peak at, along with more details of updates to its charging system.

During the middle of the week, it was all about this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, and a whole slew of new small cars and crossovers introduced there.

We covered no fewer than three new subcompact crossovers: the Honda HR-V, andĀ Mazda CX-3, and the Fiat 500X, launched with some memorable TV ads too.

Then there was the new Scion iM Concept hatchback, which previews a production model coming next spring.

And theĀ Audi A7 Quattro HyMotion concept, an all-wheel-drive luxury sport hatchback, turns out to be a plug-in hybrid powered by a hydrogen fuel cell rather than a combustion engine.

On the Unexpected News front, it seems that the Coda Sedan electric car may have returned from the dead, in the form of what's now called the Mullen 700e. We'll believe it when we see it.

Tuesday, we published photos of the 2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell car that will go on sale next year, in limited numbers, in Southern California.

It will sell for $57,500, or you can lease it--if you live in Southern California, the only place it'll initially be sold--for $499 a month with $3,650 down.

We opened the week on Monday by noting that discounts had risen on Tesla Model S loaner cars that the company is replacing with updated version--if you're in the market for an electric luxury sedan at a slightly higher discount.

On Sunday, we got more details on the Honda FCV Concept, that company's five-passenger hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicle, now slated to go on sale in 2016.

Finally, we noted that the innovative BMW i3 electric car is selling slowly in Germany--and wondered if the car will maintain its impressive sales pace in the U.S.

Overall, though, between the auto show and a slew of announcements about hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and partnerships, this was the fuel-cell focus week.

Next week, we'll return you to our regular programming.
