    Last year, worldwide car buyers were pretty refrained in the color choices they made for their cars, with white accounting for 23 percent of global car sales. But when it comes to cars like the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic five-door hatchback, vibrant colors like orange are becoming almost as popular as black, the number one Sonic color choice. According to The Wall Street Journal, Inferno Orange is the second-most-requested color for the sporty hatch, accounting for nearly one in five orders.

    Car Batteries, Diesel Golfs, Prius Crashes: What's the Link?

    Like many site editors, we read our traffic stats religiously. Perhaps unlike other site editors, ours frequently make us laugh.

    Maybe you're already overloaded with end-of-year lists. But indulge us; this is the weirdest collection of most-popular articles we could ever have imagined. We've got urine.

Here goes: # 1: 2011 Toyota Prius Station Wagon to Feature Lithium-Ion Battery. As the world's most popular hybrid electric vehicle, the Toyota Prius always attracts interest, and the notion of...

    It's the end of October, but we'll spare you the lame Halloween jokes and dive directly into the most popular posts of the month on AllAboutPrius.com. Just like the month before, only two of September's most popular posts reappeared: the 2010 Toyota Prius Reference Guide (by now the year's...

    This is our favorite end-of-month activity, looking back over the most popular posts of the last 30-or-so days on GreenCarReports.com.

So here they are for August. Unusually for us, compared to July's most popular posts, three of our Top Five are...

  • General Motors' mysterious 230 logo

    We usually recap our five most popular posts on GreenCarReports.com at the end of every month. We're a bit late for August but, hey, we had a long Labor Day too ... now we're back in business. We replaced most of July's most popular posts, with three new winners in our Top Five. Here goes: # 1: How Does the 2011 Chevy Volt Get 230 MPG? By Making Assumptions.  Frankly, we're delighted this was our top-ranked post for August. This topic is complex, and we don't think General Motors helped matters much by touting a 230-MPG claim for city gas mileage on its 2011 Volt. Bottom Line: The fuel...
