  1. What makes the car green?

    Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Competitors
    Hi, I am wondering what you people think makes a car green. I mean, is it enough to have electrical engine or hybrid, or is the production and life-time relevant factors as well? Actually, I'm writing my master thesis on this very topic in Oslo, Norway. Me and my partner are having trouble...
  2. Are Electric Vehicles the Next Big Thing?

    General Motors and General Automotive Topics
    The Fool's take on EV's: "...despite the naysayers' grumbles, electric vehicles are here to stay..." Further along in the article, "Electric vehicles will play a big role in the next decade. But it is in this obvious opportunity that there also lies several problems for investors."...

    Politics, Finance, and Environment

Further down the road I see a Model S a couple of lanes over (see image below). Then I passed, from the...
  6. Used Volt incentives?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    This is still a while down the road being that the Volt has just been released this past winter, but unless I am blind and have not read clearly, would there be any incentive to buy a volt used, down the road, say when someones 3 year lease runs up. Would there be any tax incentives or are those...
