Today on Green CarReports: Tesla's doing well on reservations for its next model, Audi offers renewable energy to recharge its first plug-in hybrid (in Germany, anyway), and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles are (still) coming soon. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

There may be as many as 13,000 reservations for the Tesla Model X electric crossover utility coming late this year. Maybe.

Good news for the climate: Coal use may be peaking in China, which worries some analysts.

We won't see it in North America, but the tiny Toyota i-Road electric transport device is now in field trials in Japan.

To recharge its new Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid, the German luxury maker now offers carbon-free electricity (in Germany).

We drove the 2014 BMW 535d xDrive, the latest diesel mid-size sport sedan--and got good fuel economy indeed.

Remember the Tesla Model S pedal-placement problem we wrote about on Monday? We have a significant update to the story.

Both Toyota and Honda plan to offer low-production hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles next year, but they won't be cheap.

Finally, two more states have raised their maximum speed limit to 80 mph.
