Today on Green Car Reports, car dealers in California--home state of Tesla Motors--attack the electric-car maker for deceptive marketing and pricing practices. The new 2015 Audi A8 gets special new lightweight wheels, California regulates ridesharing apps, and the roster for Plug-In Day is up to 93 cities. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Remember that this weekend is National Plug-In Day in 93 cities--though the event is now international and takes a full weekend.

A new website called RideNerd lets you evaluate green-car choices using a variety of criteria beyond EPA fuel-efficiency ratings.

The California car-dealer association slams Tesla for its website pricing; we're not sure they don't have a point, but it would be good for them to look at Chevy and Nissan too.

The new 2015 Audi A8 will have composite wheels that save a total of 39 pounds per car--that's huge.

With carsharing under its belt, California has now figured out how to regulate ridesharing apps to protect the public at large.

And, finally, New Jersey is debating whether to keep its ban on Sunday car sales.
