I've had this conversation with a couple of very smart people in the car world and I haven't heard a good answer yet: why does everyone love rear-wheel drive now? But it seems like when I was growing up, all enthusiasts wanted was all-wheel drive, or even well-tuned front-wheel drive.

It was his first time driving an electric car, a 2015 Leaf I'd borrowed from Nissan, and he was so worried about running out of battery range, he'd made the 42-kilometre trip with no heat. I sighed.

An Oregon woman took her 2001 Mitsubishi Montero to Steve's Imports in Portland to have the emissions system fixed; the business, however, is a repair and body shop that doesn't appear to specialize in emissions. After paying $2,299.05 for the fix she got a call from the shop informing her that a repairman had been caught on camera running a red light, so she should expect a ticket.
After driving the penny-pinching and surprisingly good Mitsubishi i-MiEV , and the best motor vehicle I have ever driven in my life, the Tesla Model S P85+ , I decided that my next San Francisco Bay Area trip ought to be battery-powered as well. I picked up a 2014 Nissan Leaf SL at the Oakland Airport and hit the road.
On the road: THIS particular Outlander may look like any other 4x4 from the outside, but it's much more than that on the inside. And while the name might not exactly trip off the tongue, the technology under the skin comes across loud and clear.

As the song says, you can "get your kicks" on Route 66--but soon you'll also be able to get a charge. The historic highway and the towns it passes through were largely done in by the construction of the Interstate highway system, but the need to stop and charge every so often makes an electric-car road trip more suited to the slower pace of Route 66. The Route 66 revival is picking up speed in Illinois, where the state government is investing $1 million to install charging stations along a roughly 300-mile section of the road between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River border with Missouri.
The turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution may not have much life left in it, but at least it is getting a nice send-off. At least, that's the conclusion we reached after Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President for sales at Mitsubishi in North America, answered several inquiries from Jalopnik readers with tasty nuggets of future-product information.
