Most fun electric vehicle
After decades of will-they-won’t-they, electric cars finally seem to be having their moment. Beyond the ever-growing lineup from Tesla–which is expected to launch a sub-$40,000 electric SUV this week–Hyundai, Kia, and Audi have all committed to releasing new electric vehicles this year. At the recent Geneva auto show, the announcements kept coming. Honda showed off an urban two-door called the Honda E, coming to Europe this year. Fiat teased a car concept with replaceable panels that you can swap on and off as easily as changing your clothes. Volkswagen debuted the ID Buggy–a conceptual dune buggy, with no roof, that can go 0 to 60 miles an hour in seven seconds. In theory! But fun! There are more models of electric cars available on the market from more manufacturers than ever before–and car design is the most radical it’s been in decades. At last, the leap to electrification feels inevitable. But that doesn’t mean the work is done. Electric … [Read more...] about The real reason you probably won’t buy an electric car this year

By: John Stepek 11/01/2019 Analysts’ forecasts aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on. But some are more useful than others.It’s the time of year for forecasts. Most analysts aren’t worth listening to – price targets for the FTSE 100 aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on and aren’t much use anyway (see page 5).
