Toyota RAV4 EV first drive

Now, though, Toyota is branching out in not only its electric range but its types of drive, and so we have the RAV4 EV, eschewing gas and fuel-cells altogether in favor of what could be the most pious interpretation of green driving so far. Still, when your engine and battery are provided by Tesla, the More

Why Tesla is focused on oil-rich Norway as it expands beyond the US

Just off the European E18 highway some 210km south of Oslo lies an industrial park called Brokelandsheia. It is an unassuming cluster of a few hundred workers, a small collection of warehouses, a Statoil gas station and a 24-hour cafe and hotel called Cinderella.

Tesla now worth more than Chrysler, but GM, Ford?

Tesla Motor’s spectacular stock price climb has led to a milestone that divided analysts on the nature of the company itself.

Should Tesla be considered an automaker, a tech company –or both? It makes a high-end luxury car, but lately its stock has behaved like it belongs alongside Google, Apple or Amazon.
