Elon Musk tells Bloomberg he's not impressed with the Chevrolet Volt or Nissan Leaf.

And, finally, we continue to get comments on yesterday's piece about the proposed Elio three-wheeled car, which may--or may not--be a new type of highly efficient transportation.

Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone!
