Used Electric Vehicles are Finally Here

Tesla is facing the best kind of problem an automaker can have —they can’t produce enough cars to meet the demand. That’s especially impressive when you consider the Model S starts at over $70,000.  Other manufacturers aren’t quite as lucky as Tesla, but overall the market for EVs (Electric Vehicles) and PHEVs (Plug-In Hybrids) is growing at a steady clip. The world is getter greener, and we’re not referring to these green cars. These days, Nissan Leafs and charging stations are a normal sight in parking garages and driveways around the US. With 126,000 all-electric vehicles and 142,000 plug-in hybrids sold in the US between 2010 and 2014, a market for used electric vehicles has finally emerged.


At over 70,000 cars sold, the Nissan Leaf is leading the charge (no pun intended). The Leaf also stands out as the only EV to sell over 10,000 units in its first year of availability. Most EV models have only been available for a year or two, although a small batch of Toyota Rav4 EVs was rolled out in the early 2000’s. [keep reading]

The automotive industry is changing rapidly. There are more than a quarter million electric cars on American roads, some of which have a range over 200 miles in between charges.  It is legal to operate driverless cars in five states and at least 7 automakers will launch driverless cars by 2020. Will 3D printing, the Star Trek-esque technology that’s been all over the news lately, be the next technology to disrupt the auto industry? The short answer is, yes. It already has. [keep reading]

The greenest cars

Car enthusiasts catch a significant amount of flack from eco-friendly folks. Climate change is happening, and in 2015 it’s tough to be passionate about something that ultimately harms our environment. That’s why Mojo Motors has made it our resolution to become more green in 2015. Our first step on the road to biological bliss it to show Mojo shoppers the greenest cars available today.


Considering the abysmal 11/18 MPG it retrieves from the 691hp V12 engine, the Lamborghini Aventador doesn’t seem like a green car on paper. But then you take a look at this baby and BAM! Undeniably green. [keep reading]

Cars in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies is the final installment of The Hobbit series, and undeniably one of the biggest movie releases of 2014.

Sorry, it is not that our Creskin powers are weak — they are non-existent when it comes to the arrival of the first autonomous cars. Why?

In any event, check out this cool chart from MojoMotors.com that shows manufacturer predictions. [keep reading]

Enter Paul Nadjarian. [keep reading]

About gas taxes (boston.com)

boston-dot-com-logoArticle by Bill Griffith for boston.com

Snowbirds and parents driving college students along the East Coast on a regular basis quickly realize that gas prices are lower in New Jersey, Virginia, and South Carolina. Conversely, it’s best to avoid filling up in Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. The reason? State taxes on gasoline vary considerably around the country. A tip of the cap goes to Sam Jackson and New York-based car-shopping website MojoMotors.com for compiling the countrywide data. One of the reasons for doing the study, notes Jackson, is the pending global warming tax that California is scheduled to implement on January 1, adding a predicted 15 cents per gallon.
