  • 2013 Nissan Leaf

    Later today, we'll find out how many 2013 Nissan Leafs the company delivered last month. March was the first month that Nissan's electric car reached dealerships in volume from the Tennessee production line where all U.S. Leafs are now assembled, using lithium-ion cells from a plant right next door. While the 2013 Leaf had been shown before, including at January's Detroit Auto Show, it appeared at last week's New York Auto Show as part of an expanded Nissan lineup that also included the new 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid seven-seat crossover. We had a chance to spend an hour driving a new 2013 Leaf...

    2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid: Video From New York Auto Show

    Last week's New York Auto Show had a number of green vehicles, but there were relatively few new production models there that truly qualified as green. So a new hybrid model of Nissan's seven-seat crossover Pathfinder comes as close as we can get. It's likely to be considered by a number of...

  • 2014 Mercedes-Benz B Class Electric Drive Live Photos

    Mercedes-Benz doesn't yet offer a front-wheel drive model in the U.S, at least until the new CLA Class lands. In Europe however, it's gone through three generations of A Class and it's now on the second-gen B Class, a spacious family hatchback. The 2013 New York Auto Show sees the debut of an electric version of that vehicle, the B Class Electric Drive. Under the metallic blue skin you'll find a 100 kilowatt (134 horsepower), 228 pound-foot electric motor, powering the front wheels. Mercedes says the instant torque--developed from a standstill, like virtually all electric cars--corresponds to...

    It might not look too different from the old model, but the car you're looking at here is the new 2014 Kia Soul.

    2015 Audi A3 TDI Diesel Sedan Unveiled At NY Auto Show

    The Volkswagen Audi Group is a master at filling niches, and another one is heading our way from early 2014.

  • 2014 Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid

    It's confirmed: Audi will offer its A3 Sportback e-Tron plug-in hybrid in the U.S. The German automaker has confirmed the news (via Motor Authority) at the New York Auto Show, just a month after the production model was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Externally similar to the regular A3 Sportback, it's under the skin where the e-Tron differs most from other A3s. The company has sought to maximize both performance and fuel efficiency. Unusually for an ultra-economical model from the Volkswagen group, the A3 e-Tron relies on gasoline power as its main motive source, in the form of a...

    New York Auto Show: Which Green Car Is Most Important?

    The New York Auto Show is almost upon us, and rather than the usual raft of green concept cars, it's the production vehicles we're most looking forward to this year.

    2014 Mitsubishi Mirage: Brief Drive Of NY Auto Show Debut

    Yes, the green paintwork was a deliberate choice. Not that the Mitsubishi Mirage, widely expected to be unveiled at the New York Auto Show next week, isn't available in any other colors. But we couldn't pass down an opportunity to drive one which matches with the site's green focus. The new Mirage...

    Volvo V60 Plug-In Diesel Hybrid: Quick Drive Of NY Auto Show Debut

    Diesel cars are at their most economical on long, steady journeys, and plug-in hybrids are at their best for shorter trips. So why haven't the two been combined yet? Actually, they have--and you're looking at the very first one. The Volvo V60 Plug-In Hybrid is the first diesel plug-in hybrid...

  • 2014 Jeep Cherokee: frame capture from off-roading video

    Eight days from now, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 crossover will be unveiled to the world at the New York Auto Show's media preview days. Jeep released the first photos and details of the 2014 Cherokee three weeks ago, and now it's served up a video to whet our appetites further. The video is meant to demonstrate the Cherokee's off-road capabilities--for those Jeep enthusiasts who remember the old Cherokee's truck-like toughness. The goal is to show that even though the 2014 model is built on an all-wheel-drive version of the same Fiat underpinnings used for the Dodge Dart sedan, it has the...

  • 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid
    2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid Set For New York Auto Show Debut

    2.5 liters doesn't seem like a lot to move a large luxury crossover like the Infiniti QX60, but teamed with a supercharger and hybrid drive system, the 2014 QX60 Hybrid aims to offer both performance and efficiency. The new car will debut at the impending New York Auto Show, and mark the third...

    Here you are: These are the first photos of the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee. Yep, that's right: Cherokee. No, not Grand Cherokee. Plain old Cherokee, the revival of a name that vanished (in the U.S.) a decade ago, although it's lived on in Europe. The new 2014 Cherokee is Jeep's replacement for the old...

    Txchnologist: Why Are Electric Car Demonstrations So Boring?

    The New York Auto Show, which opened to the public on Saturday, has elicited some barely stifled yawns from the automotive press. The slightly tweaked top-selling Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima, conservatively styled to defend its No. 2 position, just don’t get the pulse racing like the...
