Why did one buyer call visiting his local Chevy dealer "a trip down memory lane"?

And what new vehicle launch did we guess right about, way back in January?

This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, March 27, 2015.

Friday we wrote about one car buyer's experience in a Tesla store, and how it compared to the treatment he got while asking about a Chevy Volt at his local GM dealer.

Hint: Tesla provided a better experience. But he explains how and why--and what it means for global carmakers as they start to sell electric cars.

Thursday we explained why we're calling the new 2016 Chevy Volt a plug-in hybrid, rather than a range-extended electric car.

That's what the first-generation Volt was called, but the second-generation Voltec system isn't nearly as close to a series hybrid as the first one.

So we're changing. Readers, as always, debated the issue furiously in comments--more than 340 150 of them so far!

That story followed Wednesday's news that the Volt drivetrain--minus the plug-in part, and with a much smaller battery pack--would form the basis for a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid.

We're trying hard not to be smug that we totally called that one, in an article we wrote two and a half months ago. Just call us prescient.

The new Malibu will be launched at next week's New York Auto Show, along with a Toyota RAV4 Hybrid compact SUV.

We'll also see a plug-in hybrid Mercedes GLE mid-size SUV, and a surprisingly high number of other new vehicles as well.

Tuesday, we reported on a claim that one man drove a Tesla Model S completely free for 18 months. There are a few asterisks, of course.

We started the week on Monday with a Tesla story as well: More spy shots of the upcoming Tesla Model X, and even some video too.

And over the weekend, our article on how electric utilities are trying to penalize solar power--and how users are fighting back--proved surprisingly popular.

Finally, we updated our guide to all the 2015 diesel cars and light trucks on sale in the U.S. this year--always a popular feature.

Next week, it's all about the New York Auto Show, and we'll have lots of news and video from the Big Apple.

Until then, drive efficiently, and enjoy whatever springtime you're getting.
