Citroen updates C5 Aircross Hybrid SUV to remind owners to plug in regularly

French automobile manufacturer Citroen has announced that its C5 Aircross plug-in hybrid SUV has received an over-the-air (OTA) update that has enabled the e-SUV to remind to plug in when the battery goes down. Rolled out in the United Kingdom with the intention to help further optimize the petrol-electric powertrain’s efficiency, the updated e-SUV will now notify the owner he/she fails to plug in the EV regularly. The “plug-in reminders” will be displayed on the infotainment system touchscreen in the vehicle’s cabin.

Hyundai Tucson Hybrid review: economical without external charging

Somehow different – that sums up the design of the fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson, which was introduced at the end of 2020, in the friendliest way. The ambition is obvious to challenge the so-called premium brands in the extremely popular class of mid-size SUVs independently, confidently and with high quality. Technically, too, the Tucson goes interesting ways. The two top models with all-wheel drive are available both as state-funded plug-in hybrids and as full hybrids without a plug. We wanted to know whether the hybrid without a plug and with 169 kW system power is a real alternative.

On the Road Review: Lexus UX250h Hybrid

This is the smallest and least expensive crossover in Lexus’s lineup. In base front-drive trim, starting at $34,025, the subcompact UX200 uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In tested UX250h hybrid form, starting at $36,225 with standard all-wheel drive, you gain 12 hp and over 20 percent greater fuel mileage. The extra cost and the improved driving verve provided by the electric motor/gas engine combo clearly offset each other — especially since our realized fuel economy surpassed the EPA estimates of 41 city, 38 mpg highway with 44 mpg in the driving that most of us perform daily.
