Tesla tells buyers the final date to order a car before federal tax credits expire. BMW recalls charge cords for its electric cars.

Monday is the final date to place an order for a new Tesla and still receive the full $7,500 federal tax credit. Tesla's credits will be reduced on Jan. 1 after the electric-car maker is the first to reach the 200,000-vehicle cap for federal credits.

Israel announced it will halt the sale of cars powered by an internal-combustion engine by 2030. Gas and diesel-powered trucks will run on natural gas, and passenger cars will all be electric.
