Let's say that I want to open up a car manufacturing company. Would it be haram as long as they are running on electric engines (like Tesla Motors) and the power outlets use renewable resources like Solar power or wind power?

Utilizing resources is Halal. But if we misuse resources then it's haram. So car manufacturing is halal if you are running it in a right way.

    yes I do agree, example if you were camping and you used fire to warm your self its not harm, or you might die from cold. but if you use fire to burn a forest, then its haram. so car manufactoring not haram because you are helping people to transport quickly – Moudiz Sep 4 '15 at 11:20

Is car manufacturing haram?

Manufacturing cars is not haram. Allah has permitted trade and thereby permitted manufacturing products. Allah says (what means):

[2:275] Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, "Trade is [just] like interest." But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah. But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] - those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

That would be perfectly halal. However, your company should abide by the rules imposed by the authorities.
