Welcome back to another week of Green Car Reports. Today we dive into why an upcoming BMW plug-in hybrid may be more important than people appreciate. Also, we look at a third recall for a California compliance car, and report on expanded sales regions for another electric minicar. All this and more today on Green Car Reports.
First, you can recap last week's most important green-car stories by watching our Week In Reverse video.
We also covered special lease deals on the outgoing 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive battery-electric hatchback.
The Fiat 500e is now embarking on its third recall, this one for a potential Limp Home mode power shutdown.
In encouraging climate news, Mexico is setting limits on carbon emissions--a nudge for the U.S., perhaps?
Drivers in three Canadian provinces with electric-car purchase incentives will soon be able to buy a 2016 Chevrolet Spark EV battery-electric minicar.
Honda says that to optimize its North American factory capacity, it's moving production of Honda Accord Hybrids from Ohio to Japan.
Any future "BMW i5" is nothing more than a rumor at this point--but we look at what's so important about the BMW Power eDrive plug-in hybrid system.
We're betting you don't think of Chevy Camaros when you think of fuel efficiency. That's exactly why it's the designated car for the EcoCar 3 Challenge.
We also have video of a Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid supercar completing its first stunt in the Australian Outback. Of course.
And finally, we run down what we think are the best car features in 2015 models. Did we get it right?
