May-June 2016 AutoVolt
#1
In the 12th issue of AutoVolt, we take a drive in the first production Toyota hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, the Mirai. It’s a fascinating car not only in its own right but also in the question it ultimately poses; do we value the convenience of hydrogen cars or prefer battery electric cars that are more efficient? Similarly, we take a closer look at the Riversimple Rasa, a Welsh built innovative two-seat lightweight hydrogen car that could make us rethink hydrogen cars before they’ve even begun to be sold.

We have a first drive review of the new Mahindra e2o – a tiny electric city car that comes from a giant Indian car maker. Mahindra are best known in the UK for their efforts in Formula E, but does any of that racing expertise translate into a city car? We also have reviews of the larger batteried Nissan LEAF 30kWh, the 2016 Toyota Prius and sleek Lexus RC 300h coupé.

Electricity supply is often on the minds of those with an electrified vehicle and for our technology piece we take a look at something a bit closer to home. Home battery storage and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) are finally coming to the UK thanks to Nissan and Eaton who’ve developed the xStorage home battery, and Enel for V2G tech. They both have the potential to revolutionise our energy use and you could even end up being paid to plug your car in. All these features plus much more are available to read in our new issue, available at Readly, Magzter and MagCloud.
