A couple of weeks ago, we announced the 2018 CleanTechnica Car of the Year finalists. The results were resounding. This was the full description of the winning car: “Well, it’s a car. It does car things.”

Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
