After a New York Times reporter filed a report that the Tesla Model S stranded him in the middle of Connecticut, the company's founder is on a mission to prove him wrong.

If you still think that Tesla is just a small time maker of toys for millionaires who want to look green, think again.
Why aren't you driving an electric car right now? Let's ignore the fact that they're expensive, temperamental, and inconvenient, and focus on the impossibility of long-distance travel, because that's a problem that Tesla Motors has just solved with a network of solar-powered battery "Superchargers" in California.
Half motorcycle, half car and all electric, the C-1 by Lit Motors is the world's first gyroscopically stabilized EV. Designed and built from scratch, the C-1 is a fresh look for an electric vehicle, one that smashes perceptions and industry benchmarks to boot.
Eco-friendly Pope Benedict XVI is one lucky guy. This week he received a fully customized white Kangoo — Renault's electric car — as a gift from the French automaker. While it won't replace the official "Popemobile," it is likely to serve as his personal car at his summer residence. Nice!
When we posted about the FlyNano last year, there was (apparently) some skepticism about whether it was anything more than a fanciful idea. Footage released this week shows the airplane undergoing flight testing on Monday, equipped with a new battery-powered engine.
Domino's Pizza comes up with some pretty wacky ideas. (Exhibit A: moon base.) The latest, called Safe Sound, comes from the company's Netherlands arm. The electric scooters the company uses there are basically silent, which can be a hazard to pedestrians. Solution? Record someone saying, "Vrooom!"
Electric cars are silent, and that's a problem. Yeah, it's a problem for pedestrians (who can't hear them coming), but it's a real problem for electric car owners, who want their cars to sound like the amount of money that they paid.
