From Green Car Reports: 

The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime turned out to be a better plug-in hybrid than we had expected when we drove it around sunny Ojai, California, on the press launch in October.

Global efforts to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions may be starting to pay off, suggests a recent study.

When it comes to green cars, California leads the nation—and has done so for decades.
