The grass is always greener on the other side.

North American fans of high-performance hatchbacks have had to sit back and watch their fellow motorists overseas enjoy Audi’s hottest hatch – the RS3 – while the best we could hope for from the Volkswagen-Audi Group was a Golf R. The Vee-dub is a formidable consolation prize, but more is better and we want the power and glory and practicality of the Audi RS3 Sportback.

The focal point of the RS3 is its beastly, turbocharged 2.5 L engine.
With the all-new 2018 Audi RS3, hot-hatch fans will still have to look wistfully across the pond to those enjoying the new RS3 Sportback, but now the consolation prize is darn-near as good as the trophy: the RS3 Sedan.

Just about every article or news piece about an electric car that we do – and there is a lot of EV news lately – gets a comment thread filled with people debating the price of charging an EV. “Hydro rates are so high”, “maybe when electricity is cheaper”, “who can afford to drive one when I can use cheaper gas”, and best of all “filling a tank with fuel is half the price of plugging in a car.”

What we realized is that buyers don’t seem to know just how much it costs to charge an EV. I realized that I didn’t know how much it would cost to charge an EV either. But I wanted to find out. We all know exactly how much it costs to put gas in the tank – look at the lines if there is a one cent jump expected tomorrow – but electricity is more stable and more predictable. So how much does it cost to “fill up” an electric car?

This is the Tacoma for the downhill mountain biker crowd, the kind of truck that comes with a standard GoPro mount so you can film all your best bad ideas.

There’s no doubt that driving Nissan’s halo sports car is like taking the wheel of a super-sensitive gaming rig.
