Which car averaged 67 miles per gallon on renewable fuel during a recent cross-country run?
And, how many Model S electric cars did Tesla Motors deliver during its second quarter?
This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--a day early, for the week ending on Thursday, July 2, 2015.
Thursday, we covered the upcoming introduction of a 2016 Nissan Leaf with more than 100 miles of range, due to a battery pack with 25 percent more energy capacity.
That car could arrive as soon as August, reports say. But, note that it's not the all-new second-generation Leaf expected for 2017 or 2018.
On Wednesday, we reported on June's U.S. sales of plug-in electric cars, which were off from May's high numbers--and, so far, only about equal to last year's levels.
Tesla, however, issued its quarterly results as it promised in April it would. It said it delivered 11,500 Model S electric cars globally from April through June, its best quarter ever.
Tuesday, we reported on an attempt to travel from Louisiana to LA in a custom-built sports car on a single tank of renewable diesel fuel.
The final numbers were 2,500 miles covered, at an average speed of 68 miles per hour, yielding fuel economy of 67 miles per gallon. Not bad, huh?
On Monday, we speculated on the possible future launch of a Chevy Cruze Hybrid, using a Volt-derived powertrain similar to the one in the upcoming 2016 Malibu Hybrid.
Finally, we noted that the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid--and its twin under the skin, the Infiniti QX60 Hybrid--has quietly vanished from the U.S. market after just a single model year.
We weren't fans of the mild-hybrid system in the company's seven-seat mid-size family SUV--and it appears the public wasn't either.
This is a short week for us, with the U.S. Independence Day holiday starting on Friday.
Now we're off to see some fireworks and engage in the great American pastime of barbecuing.
We'll be back on our usual schedule next week. See you then!
