This is our look back at the Week In Reverse—right here at Green Car Reports—for the week ending May 25, 2018.
Friday, we shared a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance that predicts that more than half of all new car sales will be battery electric vehicles by 2040. By then they will displace as much as 7 percent of the petroleum used for transportation.
We also heard from a reader who spent more than a year living with just two Chevrolet Bolt EVs to drive, and regularly has seen more than 300 miles of range from each of them. He tells us how he did it.

Thursday, we learned what became of Apple's self-driving car. It's still on the drawing boards, but has morphed in to a Volkswagen bus—for now.
We also dug into a new kind of lead-acid batteries that are likely to help turn more mainstream cars into hybrids and help boost fuel economy in all kinds of vehicles.
Wednesday, we got sneak peaks of three new electric vehicles coming in 2020. We heard more details about a pair of new all-electric vehicles from a Midwestern American startup company that could become the Tesla of trucks and SUVs.
