  • Angry Driver with Road Rage

    Comments are a major part of Green Car Reports, and we think they're one of the reasons we've attained a surprisingly large and diverse audience of readers. But to stay useful, all comments have to be moderated—which is something our tiny staff spends a great deal of time on.

  • 2012 Chevrolet Volt

    The news cycle can be a funny thing. We happen to have three stories today about concerns with plug-in cars: Consumer Reports' dead Fisker Karma test car, questions on the real-world range of the 2012 Tesla Model S at speed, and the so-far all-but-invisible 2012 Ford Focus Electric.

Let's be clear about one thing here: Our job is not to be advocates for any specific type or make of green car. Our job is to report...
