Today on Green Car Reports: Tesla sees another eruption of copyright challenges in China, the natural-gas vehicle industry talks about diesel fuel, and we get the range and efficiency ratings from the EPA for the first Mercedes-Benz electric car. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class electric car has been rated at 87 miles of range but only 84 MPGe for efficiency. Discuss.

Even Saudi Arabia is planning to institute fuel-economy rules for new cars and trucks--with gasoline at 45 cents a gallon.

Another day, another Chinese copyright case filed against Tesla.

How would you measure the amount of natural gas you use in a car that runs on the stuff? The industry suggests diesel gallon equivalents. Ummm, OK.

A new video points out the various recycled materials used in the Nissan Leaf electric car. Needless to say, the images are pretty.

There's yet another pricey, low-volume electric sports car from Europe: This one's called the Exagon Furtive e-GT.

And finally, sales of the new 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI have been suspended while VW investigates a steering problem.
