Magna shows what it can do with EVs with a prototype I-Pace, and we drove it. Mercedes-Benz has an electric van on the way. And yes, the pandemic is reducing transportation air pollution. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.

Mercedes-Benz has teased its fully electric EQV van and its all-weather potential. The automaker hasn’t yet confirmed whether the front-wheel-drive van will be offered in the U.S., but it might be put to good use by small businesses and delivery companies if not personal use.
