It's been a busy week in the green automotive universe, but you already know that since you follow us on social media.
That means you are aware that we named the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Green Car Reports' Best Car To Buy 2014. Of course, that doesn't mean the other nominees aren't noteworthy vehicles in the green car scene.
We know General Motors has looked at making a hybrid version of the Chevrolet Corvette, but an aftermarket company has previewed its own concept called the Quanta Corvette QHP770. Basically it's a Corvette C6 Z06 hybrid with 773 horsepower.
In Tesla related news this week, CEO Elon Musk said the Model S fires have been overhyped, and the car is safe. It seems he's confident there won't be any recall. While doing some digging, we found a patent filed by Tesla for a more advanced battery protection system. Will it be used in the future? That's anyone's guess. And then there is the question of whether George Clooney really hates Teslas.
We also took a look at some of the upcoming 2013 LA Auto Show debuts including the 2015 Subaru Legacy Concept, 2015 Lincoln MKC crossover, 2015 Volkswagen E-Golf electric car, and an updated Volkswagen CrossBlue Coupe Concept.
If all of this is new to you, then you clearly aren't following us on social media. No worries: you can correct this issue by immediately following us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and, of course, YouTube.
