The Tesla Model 3 Continues a Tradition of Quickness

The Tesla Model 3 was a game changer in the EV market, and it continues to impress. In the past, the only benefit you received for an EV was the saving of fuel money in favor of electric power, but these vehicles were slow, plodding, and only the most committed environmentalist would choose them for the drive. Tesla changed this with the Model S and continues to make sure we have excellent models to drive with the new Model 3. The Model S is considered to be one of the quickest cars on the road for the past few years and now that we’ve seen a video of the Model 3 running a quarter-mile in 13.3-seconds at 104 mph, we can discuss cars that are slower than the Model 3.

The same is true if you’re going to trade in the vehicle after only three years of driving. Here are the vehicles that have the highest depreciation rate for the first three years which should be a factor for you to consider when you’re ready to drive. (more…)

The TDI Models are Making a Comeback

If you thought the TDI models offered in the US were dead and never to return, you might actually be wrong in some cases. The Volkswagen models that are offered for sale were thought to be only those that run on gasoline or use hybrid powertrains after the scandal that took place nearly two years ago.

Improvements for the Volkswagen e-Golf

In an effort to improve what we love about EV models it seems like more and more automakers are turning up the heat on the range and the power their EV models offer. Right now this segment of the market is one of the smallest and with the lowest sales numbers, but some models are making changes that hopefully will help make a difference and provide us with more of what we want on the market. While most still fight the fact that charging takes a long time, usually overnight, there are more benefits than ever to driving a great EV model. (more…)
