Report looks at the most and least expensive EVs to charge in the UK

Just like combustion engine vehicles, not all-electric vehicles are created equal. Some electric vehicles have larger batteries, and some are capable of driving further than others on the same amount of electricity.

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

2021 Karma GS-6 Review

After a week with the Karma GS-6, the surprise wasn't that nobody knew what the plug-in hybrid was, it was just how much I liked it. While the design may be ten years old now, rarity on the roads - and a convoluted back story - means plenty of head-scratching when you try to explain just what this swooping sedan is. Then factor in the fairly unusual plug-in hybrid drivetrain, and the dramatic drop in price earlier this year.

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Review

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime Review

It's probably fair to say that Toyota put hybrids on the map. The Prius defined the category, came to resemble every stereotype of a "green" car (and, for that matter, of your next Uber or Lyft), and for many has been a first taste of electrification. What's odd, then, is that it's taken until now - and the 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime - for the automaker to get around to making a compelling plug-in hybrid.

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS First Drive Review: An EV like nothing else

Sometimes, expectations weigh heavy on you. Big names, promising big things, and with big implications: the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS is a prime example. After spending two full days driving the German automaker's attempt to redefine luxury through Zurich, Switzerland, it almost comes as a relief to report that the EQS surpasses all my expectations of Mercedes-Benz. To risk a cliche, it's the S-Class of electric luxury, redefining what a modern-day high-end sedan embodies through form and function.
