Why is one family really happy that its Tesla Model S got destroyed?
And, what car did we drive this week--but plan to report on next week?
This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, October 30, 2015.
Friday, we reported from Japan on what it's like to drive a new, all-electric Honda prototype with no fewer than four electric motors.
That's one per wheel, though they're not actually IN the wheels. It's an experimental test car built using the company's two-seat CR-Z hybrid.
Thursday, we reported on new data that showed Toyota Prius owners keep their cars longer than owners of any other car (but one).
The world's most popular hybrid, in other words, also proves to be one of the longer-lived cars for its original owners.
On Wednesday and into Thursday, we covered all the new green-car concepts and production vehicles from the Tokyo Motor Show.
Those included the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell, the Subaru Viziv Future Concept, the Mitsubishi eX all-electric crossover concept, the Lexus LF-FC luxury fuel-cell sedan concept, the Nissan IDS autonomous electric concept, and more.
Tuesday, we covered the news that the hydrogen fuel-cell powered Honda Clarity sedan would also spawn a plug-in hybrid model with 40 miles of electric range, as the successor to the now-discontinued Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid.
It may also serve as the basis for a future all-electric car that Honda has promised to build, without providing any details as yet.
On Monday, our Tesla-owning author David Noland updated us with the latest info on battery degradation in his Model S.
His conclusion is that, unlike the children of Lake Woebegon, not every Tesla battery is above average--and his pack appears to be slightly below par.
Over the weekend, we also noted that a Tesla Model S appears to have saved the life of a mother and child inside it who were caught in a landslide in Norway.
The car got pretty banged up when a tree fell on it after it was swept to the edge of a cliff in the landslide. But its occupants are fine.
Finally, we'll tease you with a preview of a first drive report we'll be publishing next week.
It's the long-awaited Audi A3 e-tron Sportback plug-in hybrid, the only hatchback version of the A3 compact luxury sedan--and Audi's first electric car of any kind sold in the U.S.
We'll have photos, driving impressions, and some thoughts on Audi's approach to designing, marketing, and selling the first in what's expected to be an expanding range of cars with plugs.
Until next week, this has been the Green Car Reports Week in Reverse update.
