In non-LA Show news:
- Volvo has reduced the carbon dioxide emissions of the C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe models to 99g/km, and all three now return up to 74.3mpg (combined). Exempt from the London congestion charge soon, too.
- Spy shots doing the rounds: a claimed Range Rover plug-in hybrid (Detroit News).
- Positive feedback from the Mini E trial Stateside: participants reliably achieved an 80-mile range, sometimes getting 100 miles per charge, and three-quarters were keen to go on and buy an EV (Edmunds Green Car Advisor).
- California’s Coda Automotive is displaying its electric saloon at the LA Show this week, but production is delayed (Wired).
