Why does French maker Renault returning to North America with the Twizy electric car make very little sense to us?
And how did our Tesla-driving author fare as he drove cross-country, without benefit of Superchargers along parts of his route?
This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, March 6, 2015.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we published a travelogue in three parts that described author David Noland's trip from the snowy Hudson Valley of New York to sunny southern California.
While Tesla's Supercharger network of DC fast-charging stations is growing quickly--we'll cover that next week--it's still far from ubiquitous.
And Noland decided to take a southern route, which meant a lot of pre-planning and even more thinking about contingencies to make it between charging locations.
Still, he enjoyed his trip.
As he said, "I heard a great blues pianist, slept under a pink canopy, saw some really cool old farm implements, and got the inside scoop from a Texas legislator."
"None of that would have happened had there been Superchargers all the way."
We also learned about a surprise concept car from a storied British maker: The Aston Martin DBX Concept turns out to be an all-electric sporty crossover coupe.
We think James Bond would like it.
Back in the less-glamorous world of real people paying real dollars for real cars, a six-month update on a reader's 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage minicar concluded it was not only fun, but also very fuel-efficient.
Monday, we updated you on the status of Tesla's first solar-powered Supercharger site--there's also a Tesla Store and a service center--which is now open for business.
And, finally, we noted on Sunday that French maker Renault seems to be planning a return to North America with its Twizy one- or two-seat low-speed electric car.
While starting in French-speaking Quebec makes sense, the Twizy's design as an open-air car very much doesn't--at least during their long, cold winters.
We were especially reminded of that by the cold weather in our own part of the world.
So until next week, stay warm and dry.
