A future of self-driving cars looms ever closer, but for now they still require a human behind the wheel. Although you can’t buy a Nissan that will drive itself, you can buy one with ProPilot Assist, which takes much of the work out of driving.
Toyota announced plans at the Los Angeles Auto Show to build a commercial-scale renewable power plant in California. This 100 percent renewable power plant of the future will run on cow manure from the state’s dairy farms.
