Recently, many Tesla Roadsters were destroyed. Why, you ask? To pass all federal safety standards. Still, as that photo on the left shows, it's a bittersweet milestone to reach. While we mourn the passing (and celebrate the test passing), GM's Bob Lutz admits that the first-generation Chevy Volts might cost $40,000, a bit more than previously hinted at. If $15,600 if more your budget for a green ride, you missed paying that for Daryl Hannah's biodiesel El Camino over the weekend.
More headlines after the jump.
