Which makers unveiled new electric-car concepts or production vehicles at this week's Paris Motor Show?

And what exactly did Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk have to crack down on?

This is our look back at the Week In Reverse—right here at Green Car Reports—for the week ending on Friday, September 30, 2016.

Friday, we looked at the question of whether Tesla Motors offers discounts on new Model S and Model X electric cars.

While CEO Elon Musk urged every employee to work for a profitable third quarter, he also cracked down on discounting after reports surfaced of price cuts to move cars at some Tesla stores.

On Thursday, it was all about the Paris Motor Show, including some new electric-car concepts and one significant range increase for an existing electric model.

First, the Renault Zoe—which is Europe's best-selling electric car—got an unexpected range boost, to at least 300 kilometers (186 miles) in real-world use, as its battery capacity grew from 22 kilowatt-hours to 41 kwh.

After two rounds of teaser images, the real Volkswagen I.D. Concept for an electric car with 200 miles or more of range was released—though it won't go into production until 2020.

There was also the Mercedes-Benz Generation EQ concept, which previews a relatively sleek all-electric crossover utility vehicle it will introduce for production in 2018 or 2019.

And the new-generation 2018 Smart ForTwo Electric Drive was revealed a few days before the show opened.

Wednesday, we reported on the success of Drive Electric Week, the nine-day array of local events designed to introduce electric cars to new shoppers and let them talk to actual owners.

The event is now international, with 236 separate events held in 212 cities among seven countries and 46 U.S. states this year.

On Tuesday, our contributor Tom Moloughney took a look at etiquette for electric-car charging, with some practical advice on do's and don'ts for drivers.

We kicked off the week on Monday by noting that the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal was now one year old.

We took a look at what we've learned from Dieselgate, and noted that there are still many more hurdles to come for owners and for the company itself.

Finally, there's yet another new Jeep coming. This one is the new 2017 Jeep Compass, which replaces both the old Compass hatchback and the Patriot crossover utility vehicle.

The new Compass sits above the Renegade and below the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. It's more modern, offers more standard and optional features, and will be more fuel-efficient than the older cars.

Those were our main stories this week; we'll see you again next week. Until then, this has been the Green Car Reports Week in Reverse update.
