Today, we've got two different first drives—one hybrid sedan, one plug-in hybrid SUV—plus a look at Tesla's numbers, bad news for VW on diesels, and startling news from Dubai. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Over the weekend, as always, we ran down last week's important green-car news stories.

We now have our first drive of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which will be by far the least expensive plug-in hybrid SUV on sale next year.

Electric cars are some of the fastest-selling used cars on the market, we learned.

On a brief first drive of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid, we learned that it's a hybrid in disguise.

Electric-car incentives are popping up in more places, including some unlikely ones: how about the oil-rich sheikdom of Dubai?

The VW Group will have to spend $3 billion more in ongoing efforts to rectify its U.S. diesel emission scandal.

We ran the numbers on Tesla's giant solar-energy and battery-storage project in Kauai, Hawaii—and they're encouraging.

We've got info on the conventional 2018 Honda Accord mid-size sedan lineup too, as well as the hybrid (above).

Finally, if you've ever wondered who gets what from each gallon of gasoline you buy, we have that breakdown for you.
