BMW has revealed a quicker 530e plug-in hybrid sedan. Hyundai might have just teased the plug-in hybrid SUV that’s en route to the U.S. And Tesla has dropped prices throughout its lineup. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.
The BMW 530e plug-in hybrid sport sedan gets 40 more horsepower for 2021, under a feature called XtraBoost, which no longer makes the PHEV version the slowest model in the lineup. However BMW has made no corresponding claim about improving the model’s plug-in electric range or mileage.
Hyundai is planning to introduce a plug-in hybrid SUV to the U.S. later this year. And based on an announcement coming out of Europe, it’s looking increasingly likely that vehicle will be the Santa Fe Plug-In Hybrid.
Most of Tesla’s lineup costs less today than they were yesterday. The automaker last night suddenly dropped prices for the Model 3 by $2,000 and the Model S and Model X by $5,000. The only casualty in this appears to be unlimited Supercharging for the X and S.
