Today, Beverly Hills (of all places) has released a policy that’s got plug-in hybrid drivers in an uproar, we look at a missing mid-size hybrid SUV, and our Twitter followers surprised us, a lot. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Yesterday, the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric debuted in the U.S. with 250 miles of range; the battery-electric hatchback will go on sale late this year.

We asked our Twitter followers when they expected to buy their first battery-electric car. We did not expect the results we got.

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe mid-size crossover will get a diesel for the U.S. About the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models announced in Germany: crickets.

Beverly Hills will ban plug-in hybrids from using public charging stations, which will be limited to battery-electric cars, and for only 2 hours. Discuss.

The new smaller crossover Cadillac XT4 will have the SuperCruise Level 2 self-driving function. Eventually.

Finally, for a more general car-buying audience, our colleagues at The Car Connection have named the 9 most important cars at the New York auto show.

About Nino Plevnik

I am an electric cars lover. I love our planet and want to leave it in good condition to our children. One of the good ways to do this is to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere. As a technical person I worked on computers, hardware maintenance and programming. Otherwise I like advanced technologies, music, books, movies, life and nice weather.
