Today on Green Car Reports: Dutch students break the 0 to 60 mph record for electric cars, why German elections may affect your next luxury car purchase, the launch of Combined Charging System (CCS)-equipped cars is delayed until December, and a Tesla Model S catches fire. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

The electric car 0 to 60 mph record is smashed by a car built by Dutch students.

German elections may have a profound impact on the next Audi, BMW, or Mercedes you buy.

The sale of cars designed for the new CCS quick-charging system has been delayed until December, increasing the lead of the competing CHAdeMO standard.

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado gets a boost in gas mileage for its largest V-8 engine. Even pickup trucks are getting in on the fuel economy race.

The first Tesla Model S fire was caused by a collision with road debris--although the media may be making too much of the story.
