Today, we’ve got a recall for no fewer than 123,000 Tesla Model S electirc cars, some worrisome data on newer Nissan Leaf battery life, the EPA working to downplay climate science, and a gentle rant about how automakers define utility vehicles. All this and more on Green Car Reports.
Tesla is recalling 123,000 Model S electric cars built from 2012 through April 2016 to replace steering bolts that could corrode.
Sometimes we get tetchy. A slew of recent small “cute-utes” aren’t actually crossover utlity vehicles at all: they’re hatchbacks. We explain why.
A new study of 283 Nissan Leaf electric-car batteries has some worrying data for owners of 2016 and 2017 cars with the larger 30-kilowatt-hour capacity.
A leaked memo instructs EPA staff how to downplay climate change and suggest (wrongly) that the science is still open for debate.
Finally, we still won’t call it a crossover, but the little Mazda CX-3 got some minor updates for 2019 that debuted at the NY show as well.
