Today, the updated 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf electric car debuts at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Elon Musk promises a software update for the Tesla Model S P100D that will make it quicker, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and engine supplier Cummins face a lawsuit over Dodge Ram diesel pickup-truck emissions. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Mazda's on-again, off-again plans to offer a diesel engine in the U.S. are apparently on again. The company says it will offer a diesel option in the 2017 CX-5 crossover, in the second half of 2017.

The 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf electric car gets a boost to 124 miles of range, as well as more power and subtly-tweaked styling.

The 2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid will have 30 miles of electric range and a $76,090 base price when it goes on sale next year.

Elon Musk says an upcoming software update will allow the Tesla Model S P100D to do 0 to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Cummins face a lawsuit over alleged excessive emissions in diesel pickup trucks.

Almost exactly three years after the i3 electric car went on sale in Europe, BMW has crossed sales of 100,000 plug-in cars, including both electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

Traffic fatalities are on the rise, and some analysts believe increased smartphone use is to blame.

Finally, McLaren plans a successor to the legendary F1 supercar that will feature a hybrid powertrain.
