Today, we have two separate articles on solid-state batteries for electric cars, updates to lower diesel emissions, and a rare house editorial piece. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Breaking news this morning indicates that Toyota will launch an electric car with a solid-state battery, though not until 2022.

Audi and Mercedes-Benz together will update millions of diesel cars to lower their emissions, but they're not in the clear yet.

The Fisker Emotion luxury electric sedan won't use graphene battery cells after all, though it will still offer a 400-mile range, the company says.

Yes, a few vehicles now offer in-car vacuum cleaners; we tested one out on a long-term 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

Finally, the Formula E racing series will gain Mercedes-Benz as a competitor starting with the sixth season in 2019.
