What did electric-car and plug-in hybrid drivers tell Ford, in no uncertain terms?

And, which hybrid car is newly named an IIHS Top Safety Pick?

This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, August 14, 2015.

Friday, we put on our industry analyst hat, and looked at how the electric-car market will evolve over the next three years.

For mass-market buyers, we see several cars with ranges of 150 to 200 miles, including the Chevy Bolt EV, the next Nissan Leaf, at least one new BMW, and perhaps the Tesla Model 3.

On the high end, there will be lots of "Tesla-alikes" from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Range Rover.

On Thursday, we showed you the latest spy video of the 2016 Toyota Prius, the latest generation of the quintessential hybrid.

The camouflaged prototype was testing in San Francisco. We're expecting to learn a lot more about the latest Prius--and its 55-mpg fuel efficiency--this fall.

Wednesday saw us update a three-year-old article on used hybrids to consider staying away from, even if they do say "hybrid" on the trunk.

We added five more cars to the five we listed back in 2012. We have to say, that piece has proved really popular with readers.

On Tuesday, we wrote about a survey conducted among 10,000 drivers of both battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrids by Ford.

Both groups told Ford, essentially, "We're never going back to gasoline!" Among other things, they find electric cars nicer to drive.

We're betting the results of that survey may have some effect on Ford's future product plans.

We kicked off the week on Monday by noting that the 50-mpg Toyota Prius C, the least expensive hybrid on the market, had been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2015.

A structural change, implemented in cars built after May, improved the Prius C's score on the group's tough small-overlap front crash test to "Acceptable" from "Poor".

Finally, over the weekend, we wrote about a slightly strange video released by electric-car maker Tesla Motors.

It shows an automated charging cable locating a Model S, and plugging itself in so the car can be recharged.

Some suggest this will be necessary for Tesla to go into the business of providing autonomous electric cars to car-sharing services in the future.

We'll leave it to you to decide whether the device's snake-like motions, as it moves closer to the car, are cool or creepy, futuristic or futile--or maybe all of the above.

Until next week, this has been the Green Car Reports Week in Reverse update.
