Taxes on Teslas, Honda Civic gas mileage, the highest-mile Chevy Volt, and probably the cheapest Nissan Leaf ever. All this and more today on Green Car Reports.

Here's a new one on us: Singapore is charging a $15,000 carbon fee on an imported Tesla Model S, to account for the electricity it uses.

Well, our contributor Andrew Ganz beat that: How about just $8,500 for a new Leaf?

What's probably the highest-mileage Chevy Volt in the world, a 2012 model, just turned over 300,000 miles--and counting.

Looking for a new compact crossover SUV? We compared the Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV4.
