Because BMW is serious about electrification.

BMW had the most amount of plug ins of any manufacturer. And kept them at the forefront of their displays. Not tucked away to the side like other manufacturers. Even the LEAF was not prominently displayed.

HAHA!! They’re going to get Volkswagen mad at them, VW likes to claim they make more electric car models than anyone, the only trouble is we can’t buy them.

How many BMW’s can we currently buy besides the I3 and 8?

I think VOlvo will have something with their XC90 plug-in hybrid. Motorweek just did a review of the gas only model and it seems like a great LARGE car.

They would then have the satisfaction of making the FIRST RELIABLE LARGE EV.

Great to see all the choices!

Let me guess. No SparkEV?

SparkEV is like an abandoned puppy that tries so hard to please the humans, the poor thing.

There was a Spark EV parked between a new Volt and a 2016 gas Spark. A product guy I talked to said the last of the 2016 Spark EVs in the old body style will be built in January. He also said he’d heard there will be a 2017 Spark EV on the revised body. It is a perfect urban commuter, so I’d love to see them keep it as a lower-cost option to the Bolt.

The market is depressingly stagnant. There’s not a single plugin out there that I want, that is affordable, and that is available in my area.

We have all been waiting such a long time for energy sustainability and zero emission vehicles. It’s understandable that our patients is wearing thin. But if we take a step back, we see that we really are living in a very exciting and hopeful time.

There are six cars that are currently in production or soon will be that have a 200+ mile range and can quick charge; the Tesla Models S, X and III, the Chevy Bolt, the next generation Nissan Leaf and the Audi e-Tron Quatro. Five years ago there wasn’t hardly a single practical production EV. Although we should never stop striving for something better, we should also be grateful for how far we have come.

Ford no battery updates again.
Does Ford expect sales based on PITY?

I was expecting DC quick charging for the Focus Electric at least.

Another 25 miles of range would be welcome too. The FFE is going to become increasingly difficult to sell vs the Leaf and Kia Soul EV, which provide both.

I believe these are all 2016 models. The 2016 FFE came out a couple of months ago with just a few minor changes like upgrade to Sync 3. The C-Max is suppose to get a solar roof in 2017 but other than that Ford has been pretty quiet about their EV plans. We know Ford hired a bunch of EV engineers but the fruits of their labor haven’t materialized yet.

We also know that Ford also buys batteries from LG Chem. That could mean Ford can compete on price with the Bolt but could also mean that Ford is in a contract war with LG Chem since LG Chem is so heavily invested in the Bolt. Anyway, I like my FFE but I’m about ready to move on Ford isn’t offering anything better in an EV right now. I was really hoping Ford would show us something new at this auto show.

Ford is more likely to do a reveal of something new in Motor City, at the 2016 NAIAS, since it is their home.

Surprized no Tesla Model S and X in a corporate booth, but they said all hands on deck for model 3 development now, for March Reveal, so understandable.

I don’t understand the carmakers’ reluctance (magnetic! ;-)) to put DCFC. It’s probably lot cheaper than putting in onboard charger. GreenPhy chip from Qualcomm, some microcontroller and bit of typing (aka, software), and voila! $750 extra cash for DCFC option.

At least Chevy is doing it with SparkEV, even as a learning exercise. Ford and others aren’t even trying.

Wait… is the VW GTE to be sold here???

That’s an eGolf that’s been mislabled a couple times now here. No plans that I’m aware of to sell the GTE here, hope that changes with dieselgate, though! (I do suppose there is a very small chance that is a GTE with the eGolf wheels, but very unlikely…)

Not sure why my original post was deleted but the interior picture is still of a new 7 series and not the X5 xdrive 40e as it is labeled.

Why was not the 2016 Cadillac ELR mentioned in your article? It was there near the white CT6—I know because I sat inside and took photos, which I would be delighted to send you—-So, you missed it?. Nevertheless, thank you for your monthly EV summary. It is a great way to follow the industry’s progress in getting folks to believe in EV’s.

Apparently my comment was lost when the internet quit for a second. I was disappointed that you didn’t mention the Cadillac 2016 ELR. It was there as a successful survivor having been pulled from the 2014 LA Show at the last minute thus disappointing a lot of folks who came because of earlier announcements. Nevertheless, thanks for your monthly summary of EV sales——-
