Where are the hybrids?
Where is Tesla, maker of the world's most advanced all-electric production car?
At an annual East Coast summit meeting of automobile writers last month, the emphasis seemed to be on raw, naked horsepower from the internal -- or infernal --combustion engine.
But its all-electric RAV4 has a Tesla powertrain, and is available only in California.
Toyota has more green cars than any other major manufacturer.
It's hard to believe the two cars come from the same manufacturer.
The i3 has a base price of $41,350, and a range of up to 110 miles when fully charged.
Another version of the i3, with a "range extender" (a gasoline generator with 1.9-gallon tank), goes up to 185 miles on a full charge, BMW says.
Think of it as a security blanket.
The base MSRP is $45,200.
The 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was at the top of the heap in terms of raw horsepower. Another reborn muscle car, the Chevy Camaro, also was represented, but no Ford Mustangs were on hand to drive.
