Which story, now in its third week, shows no sign of letting up on the news, technology, or massive public humiliation front?
And, what CEO tweeted about a mysterious new future model--and then deleted the tweet?
This is our video look back at the Week In Reverse--right here at Green Car Reports--for the week ending on Friday, October 9, 2015.
Friday, we ran down each model of Volkswagen TDI diesel car affected by the expanding emission-cheating scandal, and looked at how they might be fixed--and when.
The VW diesel-cheating story, in fact, continues to make news almost every day.
On Thursday, we revealed that not only did buyers of those deceptive VW diesels get about $50 million in Federal income-tax credits in 2009, but that Volkwsagen demanded its so-called "clean diesel" cars get the same Federal incentives as electric cars.
That didn't happen, and Volkswagen pouted. So much so, in fact, that it refused to take part in a 2011 announcement of future fuel-economy standards that included President Obama--even though pretty much every other carmaker was there.
We also noted that VW has withdrawn its application to certify its 2016 diesel models--though the company thinks a simple software fix will make the EPA happy.
The EPA later responded that it would make very, very, very sure it understood what those cars were doing under all circumstances before it certified them.
Wednesday, we asked what the Tesla Model X should be called. Is it an SUV? A crossover? A wagon? Maybe even a hatchback?
Commenters weighed in quickly, but they didn't seem to agree--with several arguing it was so incredibly new and revolutionary that it wasn't any of the above.
Ummmmm ... really?
On Tuesday, we discussed a tweet by Tesla CEO Elon Musk--soon deleted, but screen-captured for posterity--about a future Tesla Model Y.
We think will be the crossover utility version of Tesla's affordable Model 3 electric sedan. After all, Model Y would be the smaller brother of the bigger Model X, right?
We kicked off the week on Monday by noting that Ford has finally released its first video ad for the Focus Electric hatchback.
The ad doesn't say much, but after more than three years, it's at least a start. Maybe.
Finally, with more and more used Tesla Model S electric cars on the market--including many at Tesla Stores--we updated two highly popular guides this week.
One looks at all the hardware changes in the Model S since June 2012, and the other looks at the many software updates, large and small, that the Model S has had since then.
If you've bought a used Tesla Model S, by the way, let us know. We're curious to hear about your experience.
Until next week, this has been the Green Car Reports Week in Reverse update.
