Toyota-MiraiFuel cell powered Lexus? Having just released the Mirai, Toyota plans to phase in fuel-cell powered versions of other models, according to Motoring. The system could be used in the Lexus LS by 2017 as well as in Toyota models like the Corolla and Crown and in a large SUV over the next few years.

200,000 EVs by 2020 is the ambitious goal of South Korea’s latest policy package. Measurements include the extension of existing tax cuts, investments in infrastructure as well as a further electrification of vehicles purchased by public institutions. A pilot program on Jejudo Island will see battery leasing as well as the roll out of 119 electric buses and 1,000 electric taxis and rental cars by 2017.

Supercar to be electrified: Trion Supercars plans to launch its Nemesis by 2016. While the combustion engine version comes with 2,000 hp, an electric Nemesis E and a hybrid Nemesis ER are set to follow.

Electric minivan for China: Early next year, the Xin Longma Kaiteng M70 EV will hit the Chinese market. The electric minivan is the first of its kind and said to have a range of 190 km (118 miles) at a price of only 60,000 yuan (9,640 dollars) after incentives.

Bultaco e-bike: The Spanish brand is bringing the Brinco, an extra fast electric bike with a top speed of 60 km/h (37 miles). The 1-kWh Li-Ion battery provides a range of up to 100 kilometres (62 miles), but only in pedal-assist mode. A limited edition is scheduled for delivery in April for 4,800 euros (6,000 USD).

Mirai review: John Voelcker drove Toyota´s FCV and found it very similar to the Prius, be it the steering or the interior. However, the Mirai’s hydrogen system makes sounds which are unheard in a Prius.

Mitsubishi recalls Outlander PHEV: The Japanese carmaker has just issued another recall for its plug-in Outlander. This time 6,517 PHEVs built between January and December 2013 have to see the dealer due to software problems that could drain the battery and shut down the car. It is the third recall of the Outlander but this time it will not lead to any delays in production.

Driving the Outlander in the UK, Alisdair Suttie did not experience any of the above problems. While he found the ride “too firm at all speeds and in all conditions,” he cannot deny that Mitsubishi is offering a very good deal with its PHEV, which sports “excellent economy,” according to Suttie.

EV experience: To boost the uptake of its e2o, Mahindra will set up ‘Experience Centres’ in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune and New Delhi. The aim is to inform consumers on the benefits of driving an EV, mainly by pointing out fuel and cost savings. The centres are part of a wider initiative, which also includes the installation of quick chargers and battery lease options.
