Hit the Gas
Between the credit crunch and the wholesale collapse of Detroit, the odds on the electric car have been looking pretty slim. But it’s hard to overestimate the power of a good idea.
Colorado’s Lightning Hybrids is about to roll out the LH4, a biodiesel-powered hybrid that gets 100 miles-per-gallon. Best of all, they plan to retail the cars for $40,000 and up, which would result in a surprisingly accessible end product. It’s not quite electric, but it’ll certainly do for now.
Let’s just hope they do better than Tesla.
