John Voelcker created a fake scoop for Green Car Reports on a company called NuTankX, supposedly a start-up based in Michigan that worked a new angle on the Better Place battery swap — gas tank switching.
Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield write a story on All Cars Electric where she “found” some plug-in innovation from the oil giant BP.
