2018 nissan leaf: monthly update for may 2018by mark takahashi, senior writerwhere did we drive it?the 2018 nissan leaf joined our long-term fleet in late march, but this is the first monthly update. i'm not sure what happened to the april update, but hey, it's an imperfect world and things sometimes fall through the cracks. our leaf hasn't gone anywhere outside of the typical staff commutes, which is what you'd expect from a fairly new ev addition. perhaps some brave soul will travel outside of the southern california comfort zone soon. stay tuned.what kind of fuel economy did it get?since the end of march, we've logged about 2,200 miles. over that distance, one driver went as far as 129.8 miles on a single charge and reported 29 miles of range remaining. if that range was correct, t...





2019 volvo s60 polestar first look

polestar may not have the name recognition of brands such as mercedes-benz's amg or bmw's m, but volvo's performance division has quietly committed to making itself known outside of die-hard enthusiast circles. case in point: the sultry polestar 1 coupe, a swedish grand tourer with an exceptionally detailed cabin and a whopping 600 horsepower from its complex four-cylinder engine. but polestar isn't just ramping up production on its first stand-alone luxury car. it's also continuing to offer hot-rod versions of volvo's cars, with the latest version the 2019 volvo s60 polestar. based on the fully redesigned 2019 s60, the new s60 polestar has increased power and a sport-tuned suspension that promise to transform this compact luxury vehicle into a world-class sports car. unlike its germ...

2018 mini countryman hybrid long-term road test

2018 mini countryman s e hybrid: monthly update for may 2018by brent romans, senior editorwhere did we drive it?this was an "all brent, all the time" month for our 2018 mini cooper countryman s e hybrid. i had it for the entire month and drove it about 1,500 miles. that came about from two road trips to northern california, including one to san francisco with my family for memorial day, and a fair amount of city driving. spending a month with the countryman was a great way to learn its upsides and downsides.what kind of fuel economy did it get?we've standardized the way we drive our cooper countryman s e hybrid. we drive in all-electric mode and use up the hybrid battery pack first (assuming it has power) and then keep driving using regular hybrid operation. this way we can tell how man...

2018 nissan kicks first drive

skateboards, surfboards, killer sound systems, a starting price of $18,965, and an optional rear roof spoiler that makes it look like it's wearing a backward hat. we get it, the 2018 nissan kicks hangs out with the cool kids. nissan's newest subcompact crossover suv wagers that buyers want affordability, fuel efficiency, safety packages, and tech options more than horsepower or off-road capability. hey, sweet kicksthe kicks cuv doesn't look like a cheap car. the paint options are bright and glossy, and there's a variety of exterior trim materials used to highlight the body lines, add textural interest, and give it a high-riding stance. though it shares its underpinnings with the nissan versa, the kicks has none of that car's bland rental-car sadness. nor is it as polarizing as the nis...





2017 chevrolet bolt ev long-term road test

2017 chevrolet bolt premier: monthly update for may 2018by calvin kim, road test engineerwhere did we drive it?after all the shenanigans of april, our 2017 chevrolet bolt had a quiet and reliable month of commuting and city driving — exactly what this ev hatchback is good for. instead of doing the daily driver shuffle with different editors in and out of the driver's seat every day, we had a few drivers stay in the bolt for longer periods. this approach provides more accurate electric use data, as well as a new perspective for some who may question the very seat they're sitting in. what kind of fuel economy did it get?considering it was a month of stop-and-go city driving, it should be expected that we only drove the bolt about 1,000 miles this month and our electric consumption was pr...
