Second Full EV from Japanese Electric Car Pioneer

The Nissan Leaf, launched back in 2010, marked Nissan out as one of the major pioneers in real-world electric cars, particularly as a mainstream manufacturer. And it’s since become one of the world’s best-selling EVs, with around 600,000 sold in the dozen years it’s been around.

Mercedes Benz EQS 450 Review

the S-Class of Electric Cars

My review of the Mercedes-Benz EQS 450+ Luxury at the SMMT Test Day. This £100,000 car is the S-Class of Mercedes’ all-electric EQ range, although it’s a completely separate ground-up design. I take a look at the boot, the rear passenger compartment, the front space and kit and take for a drive on a close hill course circuit. #BCGMercedesEQS

Volvo XC40 Recharge P8 Twin Pro AWD 

Minimum Fuss Family EV

This is Volvo’s first all-wheel drive fully electric car, the EV version of the Volvo XC40 medium-sized family SUV that’s been around since 2018. The XC40 is available with other powertrains including a mild hybrid and full plug-in hybrid too. This electric XC40 Recharge was introduced in 2020, and while it may have been adapted to run as an electric car, rather than originating as an EV, it is worth mentioning that it shares its platform with Polestar 2 – which was launched as a fully electric car.
