Electric cars cheaper to run, but high prices still a problem: Study

Electric vehicles are cheaper to run than petrol or diesel cars, but their sticker prices are still too high for buyers to properly reap the benefits, according to a new study from the Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ). Although electricity is cheaper than petrol or diesel on a per-kilometre basis, depreciation and the steep purchase price of pure-electric vehicles mean they're still pricier to own over five years.

Hyundai Kona EV, Kia e-Niro range downgraded

The long-range Hyundai Kona EV has had its range downgraded on the WLTP test cycle, after the company discovered its external test agency hadn't followed the correct test procedure. Kia last week downgraded the range of its e-Niro for the same reason. The re-rating means the 39kWh Kona is rated for 289km instead of 300km, while the 64kWh model is officially good for 449km rather than the 470km initially promised.
