When the final version of the U.S. government’s fuel standard regulations came out this week, the Honda Civic Natural Gas car was one of the big winners. Previous versions of the legislation had excluded compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles from the list of alternative fuel vehicles that can receive credits from the government. The credits help car makers offset their costs of production. Now that CNG vehicles are on the list, many industry-watchers expect other automakers to produce natural gas vehicles in the near future.

An agreement between investors and a governing body in the world of auto racing will lead to the first Formula E, electric racing circuit in 2014, in which teams of drivers will compete on the streets of major cities.

So far, at least 10 teams and 20 drivers have signed onto the inaugural event. A prototype electric race car has been created by Formulec. The car has a top speed of 140 mph and can drive for 25 minutes before needing a recharge. At 1,700 pounds, Formulec’s EF01, as the car is called, can reach 60 mph in just three seconds.
