Green Thinking

Go for an online ride in the new Lexus hybrid; Chevy Volt minivan is coming


Driving star
Lexus has released an online, interactive film to promote its new hybrid, the CT 200h. "Dark Ride" puts you in the action via webcam and a Facebook account. You sit shotgun and pick the route on a high-speed adventure that's intended to show the dark side of the "green" auto movement.


Volt minivan
A U.S. patent filing indicates that a Chevrolet Volt minivan is in the works. Power for the minivan will likely be provided by the same plug-in hybrid system destined for the Volt sedan and the look will be loosely based on the new Chevy Orlando (shown at right).
