    1395921300

    Car dealerships are not usually thought of as "green" enterprises. They sell, after all, the fossil fuel-powered vehicles that account for about 18 percent of the CO2 emissions created in the US each year.

    Video: Governor Rick Perry backs bid for Tesla Stores in Texas
    1395791700

    Ever have one of those moments when you release something out onto Twitter, only to think better of it a little while later and reach for that garbage can icon? If so, you are not alone.

    1394886360

    When the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission decided on Tuesday to block Tesla Motors from selling cars from its stores in the Garden State, it may have inadvertently kicked a hornet's nest.

    1394728260

    When you're a kid, anything is possible. With a bit of crayon, cardboard boxes can become helmets, or even space ships. All it takes is a bit of imagination.

    We live in a skeptical world. When it comes to upstart green vehicle manufacturers, there is no end to the people who will line up to say "That's cool, but it just ain't going to happen."

    The unveiling of the Qoros 3 hatch was somewhat disappointing for us at AutoblogGreen in that it wasn't a production version of the plug-in hybrid concept that it showed last year in Geneva.
