Chevrolet has reapplied for the trademark "Crossvolt." It originally applied for the name in 2011, then let the application expire this year. The theory is that the name could be applied to a Chevrolet Volt crossover.

7Porsche to replace chassis components in 918 Spyders

Porsche is repairing 205 units of the 918 Spyder around the world for problems with unspecified "chassis components" on the hybrid supercar.

18Lamborghini Asterion could still see showrooms

At the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Maxim after the introduction of the stunning Asterion hybrid, "I strongly believe that this is not a car that will be in production, and we will not do it." However, the Asterion concept came more than a year after Winklemann told that same magazine, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, that "Lamborghini was not interested in hybrids." He repeated the sentiment in Paris, saying, "We're still not interested."

9Toyota says C-HR Concept is more of a Prius preview than we thought

Angular, Aggressive Design Could Arrive On Fourth-Gen Hybrid

When the designers thought they were just about finished with the new look of the fourth-generation Toyota Prius hybrid, higher-ups did not like what they saw and sent those designers back to the proverbial drawing board to come up with something a little spicier. Duly inspired, the designers came up with something last spring that may look a bit like the C-HR crossover concept, Automotive News says. For those looking for a Prius design with a little more bite, that isn't necessarily a bad thing

15Translogic 166: Porsche 918 Spyder

In the same month that Porsche announced that its 918 Spyder is sold out, Translogic is getting its first (and likely last) shot at the plug-in hybrid hypercar. Our drive starts off in a very civilized fashion as we tour the 918 Spyder's e-power and hybrid modes, but the fun really starts when the naturally aspirated 4.6-liter V8 engine roars to life in sport and race hybrid modes, augmenting the electric motors with an additional 608 horsepower for a total of 887.

51DOE admits nearly 50 percent of EVs bought in California

As fuel prices keep falling across the US, sales of fuel efficient vehicles keep going with them. By AutoblogGreen's tally, the market for green cars, which includes diesels, is down 6.4 percent through November 2014. However, there is a bright spot in the bleak news. Plug-in sales are actually up for the year by about 30 percent. A report from the US Energy Information Administration, a branch of the Department of Energy, finds that this segment is still growing. Though, their popularity is sti

41Renault reveals tiny two-stroke twincharged diesel

The Renault-Nissan Alliance bills itself as the worldwide leader in electric vehicles with a claimed 58 percent of the global market share. In the highly competitive world of increasingly efficient powertrains, development can never stand still if the company wants to maintain that dominance. Renault just held a show of its latest drivetrain prototypes. The most bizarre of them wasn't electrified, but it was so weird that it needed to be shared.
