    This is an index to all the electric car and truck models discussed in this section of the TMC forums. It is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all EVs.

    BEV = Battery Electric Vehicle (Pure EV)

    Could you please add :
    BEV Renault Kangoo Z.E.
    BEV Renault Fluence
    BEV Renault Zoe
    BEV Renault Twizy (that one is difficult to put in a class, technically speaking it is a quadricycle)

    They are all still in production (the Zoe is only starting) and do sell pretty well in Europe (apart from the Fluence).

    The C-Max Energi is a PHEV, not BEV. There is also the Ford Fusion Energi PHEV. Ford Fusion Energi

    It may be too much, but what about a general thread for Conversion cars?

    I think it would be nice to add a columns for range (or estimated range) and price (or estimated price).
    Doesn't Mercedes have something in the works too? Or is that the SMART ED?

    There's a whole subforum for conversions, and it's not very active.

    If you compile the data, I'll put together the table.

    Added... that's a weird case because it's not really a production vehicle. Like the MiniE it's a limited duration field trial, and the cars will be taken off the road at the end.

    Then you might as well add the EV 1 to that list. Also the Nissan Prairie and Altra.

    not sure where you would put the TORQ Roadster by Epic (Motorcyle? Car?) but it deserves to be on the list as a current production BEV vehicle.

    Added EV1. Doh. Wasn't really a good thread on that one, though.

    New Rav4 EV already listed.

    Nissan Prairie and Altra - can't find any threads on these. Make a thread and I'll add it.

    Vtrux - doh! I've actually driven a couple of these... how could I forget that one?

    - - - Updated - - -

    This is an index to this section of the TMC forums. I'll mention the list in the first post though.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've put it on the list, but it should really be moved over to the upcoming Index to Electric Motorcycles.

    I suggest adding the following. All were built in series production, and in my opinion they were significant.

    Obsolete Cars (no longer in production, or never made it to production)
    EREV/PHEV = Audi Duo
    EREV/PHEV = Lohner Porsche Lohner-Porsche - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    BEV = Honda EV Plus
    BEV = Baker Electric
    BEV = Detroit Electric
    BEV = Solectria Force
    BEV = AC Propulsion Tzero (was not production built, but VERY significant)


    In current production:
    BEV = Bolder EV step van. http://www.boulderev.com/
    BEV = Smith Edison truck
    BEV= Smith Newton truck
    BEV = Optare Versa bus. Optare Versa EV - YouTube
    BEV = BYD K9 bus
    BEV = Proterra bus

    I am oddly offended by the word "obsolete" for my Roadster. How about "production suspended" or "discontinued".

    The PIA list is incredibly comprehensive. Why duplicate it? Perhaps ask Chad for permission to copy it with full credit?
