Tariff Tensions and Hybrid Horizons: Biden’s Policy Shifts and the Latest in Green Automotive Advances

Published

2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid, Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, Biden's Increased Tariffs: Highlights from Today's Automotive Updates

The Biden administration has raised tariffs on a range of products from China, impacting more than just electric vehicles and their batteries. Kia updates its three-row hybrid SUV. Meanwhile, Subaru turns to Toyota to expand its electric vehicle offerings. For these stories and more, stay tuned to Green Car Reports.

In our initial test of Mercedes' electric G-Wagen, it proved to be a superior and more accurate off-road vehicle compared to its gasoline-powered counterpart, surpassing the traditional models with its standout feature, the G-Turn, even before reaching its peak performance.

According to recent updates, Subaru plans to reintroduce the Crosstrek Hybrid, following the anticipated release of the 2026 Subaru Forester Hybrid. Additionally, it has been noted that three of the four electric vehicles Subaru unveiled last year are expected to be joint projects with Toyota.

The 2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid, a three-row SUV, boasts fuel efficiency of up to 36 mpg and will feature updated designs both internally and externally, with no increase in price. A comparable refresh is anticipated for the plug-in hybrid model.

The Biden administration has significantly increased the tariff on Chinese electric vehicles (EVs), and this increase also extends to tariffs on EV batteries, solar cells, and essential minerals. The scope of these hikes also includes steel, aluminum, and semiconductors. However, it does not continue the approach of former President Donald Trump, who specifically targeted imports from Mexico.

Significant increases in tariffs are now affecting Chinese electric vehicles, batteries, steel, among other products, which will alter the entire automotive industry.

Subaru has announced plans to introduce four electric vehicles by 2028, and three of these could be developed with Toyota or be Toyota-derived models.

In 2025, the Sorento Hybrid will undergo a facelift similar to the updates that the non-hybrid Sorento models received in 2024, featuring a notably larger grille.

The G 580 electric SUV, equipped with four motors and a 116 kWh battery, is positioning itself as a strong competitor in the same market as Rivian and Hummer.

Tesla is planning to expand its Supercharger network despite the recent layoffs of many employees who facilitated this growth. Vinfast introduces a new entertainment interface designed by Sony. Meanwhile, Volkswagen provides more details regarding the distribution of its ID.Buzz vans in the U.S., although some information remains undisclosed.

Volkswagen disclosed the main specifications for the 2025 VW ID.Buzz electric van almost a year ago; it has now detailed the features. Despite being several months away, pricing details and a build tool are still not available.

Vinfast claims it is the first globally to feature the Sony app on the VF 8, marking the brand's initial electric vehicle debut in the U.S. last year.

What prompted Tesla to equip the entry-level Model Y with an oversized battery? How do remote areas perceive the necessity of EV charging stations? We recap these stories and more in our Week In Reverse feature at Green Car Reports, covering the events up to May 11, 2024. Additionally, Green Car Reports conducted another test drive of the Hyundai Ioniq 6…

Earlier in the month, CEO Elon Musk dismissed almost all members of Tesla's Supercharger team, despite having previously described them as crucial to Tesla's future success.

Trump is said to propose eliminating EPA regulations favorable to electric vehicles. BP aims to salvage abandoned Supercharger sites as Tesla’s charging initiatives stall. Also, is it logical to have a large battery pack without a charging port in fuel-cell semi-trucks and possibly even pickup trucks? Toyota believes it is. More on this…

Toyota proposes that by increasing battery capacity, hydrogen fuel-cell technology can be enhanced to better meet the demands of distance and cargo hauling, as demonstrated by their redesigned semi truck.
