Read about the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV's 238-mile range rating, the Tesla 100D battery option, and more in our Week in Reverse feature.

Adding to the confusion surrounding the Chevy Bolt EV and Volt names, it turns out the two names are virtually indistinguishable in Korean.

Michigan denies Tesla's application for a dealership license, reaffirming its ban on direct sales.

A combination of lax regulations and unscrupulous trading firms leaves Africa with the world's dirtiest fuel, according to a new study.

As part of an upcoming refresh, the 2018 Kia Soul EV electric car may get a range boost to keep pace with the competition.

California removes its limit on solo carpool-lane access for plug-in hybrids, reinstating the "green stickers" that ran out at the end of last year.

Speaking of plug-in hybrids, we compare the Chevy Volt and the Ford C-Max Energi.

Finally, one report claims Lamborghini is mulling an electric car, which would borrow components from the upcoming Porsche Mission E sedan.
