Nope, it’s not the Tesla Model S, lauded as CAR of the year (not just green) by everyone from Motor Trend to…many more.

I’m not sure what it takes to get a time slot in the jam-packed schedule at the LA Auto Show media days, but I think having something new to announce is pretty much a requirement. So it’s no surprise that Fisker chose to have a Q&A on Google Hangout livestreamed via YouTube instead of the usual fanfare. This actually makes more sense for a company still experiencing severe growing pains.
I sat down with Hyundai’s Frank Ahrens to talk about the new HyundaiVeloster C3 (short for Convertible 3 door) Concept and their take on the future of sustainable transportation (hint, it’s wet).

I made it back to the East Coast in one piece (despite filling up another few barf bags….I hate flying) and even though I haven’t had a chance to fully recharge my human batteries, I’m back to the grind already. Let’s start the day off with a wrap-up of the sustainable sights from the 2011 […]
If any American car company is a modern success story, it is Ford. The Blue Oval has been debuting product after product to much praise,and the Los Angeles Auto Show is no different.
