Today on Green Car Reports: We ask whether Tesla Motors alone can double demand for the battery cells it uses, we look forward to a Corvette hybrid, and examine whether Norway can maintain its rate of electric car adoption. All this and more in today's car news, right here on Green CarReports.

Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] is buying batteries. Lots of batteries. But will battery supply be enough to meet Tesla's demand as production increases?

In related news, with Tesla, GM, Nissan and BMW leading the electric market, the EV credits they sell may mean some automakers don't even need to make electric cars...

Toyota has released a few more details on its FCV-R fuel-cell vehicle: it's actually a hybrid with a fuel-cell "engine".

Norway is going mad for electric cars. But can the country sustain all its tax breaks and incentives?

Chevy might be considering a Corvette hybrid. Don't panic though--it could be pretty cool.

BMW has released more teaser footage of its i8 plug-in hybrid sports car. The official launch is just a week away.

Nissan's motor sport arm, NISMO, could make a performance version of the forbidden fruit Micra subcompact we recently drove.

And finally, Allstate has named D.C. drivers the worst in the country. For shame, D.C, for shame...
