Today on Green Car Reports: Tesla's next electric sedan will be called Model III, the next Chevrolet Volt will have the same electric range as the current car, and the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid laps the Nurburgring. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

The new name for Tesla's "third-generation" electric car is Model III (pronounced "Model Three"), according to CEO Elon Musk.

The 2015 Chevrolet Volt will get a bigger battery pack, but its 38-mile electric range remains the same.

The Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid sets a different kind of Nurburgring lap record, aiming for fuel economy instead of speed at the famous German track.

The forthcoming Mercedes-Benz C-Class plug-in hybrid will have an electric range of 32 miles on the (optimistic) European test cycle, a new report says.

The White House responds to a Tesla direct-sales petition by saying, "Sorry, talk to Congress."

The 2015 Lexus NX 300h hybrid crossover packs a fuel-efficient powertrain under its sci-fi bodywork.

The 2015 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan will equal its predecessor's record sales, the company believes.

Meanwhile, the new 2015 Hyundai Tucson small crossover was caught testing in these spy shots.
