Range Rover's plug-in hybrid, Ford thinks green, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Tesla's Hawaiian solar-energy project




2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport P400e

Which plug-in hybrid compact crossover is finally coming to America, after so many delays? What does Ford plan to do in the next few years now that the Michigan automaker is diverting money from internal combustion engine development into electrification? This is our look back at the Week In Reverse—right here at Green Car Reports—for the week ending on Friday, October 6, 2017. Friday, we went back in time and updated an article pointing out not all electric cars are sold nationwide that we'd originally published in 2014. And then, with the announcement that Mazda will share Toyota's electric-car underpinnings, we wondered: Where does that leave Subaru for electric cars?

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Catalina Island, CA, Sep 2017

Monday, our first drive of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was published. It will be by far the least expensive plug-in hybrid SUV on sale next year when it finally hits dealers.
We took a brief first drive of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid and we learned that it's a hybrid in disguise.
Finally, we ran the numbers on Tesla's giant solar-energy and battery-storage project in Kauai, Hawaii—and they're encouraging.
