Power-dense batteries are available in the Electric G-Class. Federal hydrogen hubs should be further investigated for how they produce hydrogen, experts say. And does the Ford Escape PHV provide an experience that can be understood right next to Ford’s great EV? This and much more, here in the Green Car report.
In a review of the Ford Escape plug-in hybrid, we found that this model does not offer much confidence in having a design- and technology-intelligent Mac-E or Lightning- or all-electric. Is it lost in the energy age, when plugging in means saving more gas than being a pipepipe-emission-free?
American firm Silla will supply its silicon anode battery chemistry for the upcoming electric version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV, the German automaker confirmed on Tuesday. Chemistry enables higher energy concentrations, so the rugged off-road electric SUV will be able to pack long range without sacrificing packaging.
And will the upcoming hydrogen hubs in the energy department be as dirty as coal? A team of experts warned this week that these sites, which could help fuel tracking, industrial use and more, may not be clean at all unless the DOE announces exactly what constitutes “clean” hydrogen. They will spend 8 8 billion in federal infrastructure funding.
