BMW i8: Two Engines, 95 MPG, ‘Nuff Said

If you’ve got the $135,700 to spare and enjoy the prospects of 95mpg gas mileage (up to 703 miles per tank), then BMW has an Eco-friendly ride that you’re going to love. Part of what makes i8 such an efficient creation is how it stores two engines — one in the front, one in the rear — and allows them to operate independently of one another. As a result, you can also get from 0 to 60 in about 4.5 seconds. Last but not least, the sleek carbon fiber body makes this one look a lot better than any economy Read More

BMW i3 may finally have a release date for the US, and that date will probably be around the first of January 2014, with rollout to European markets in November of this year. While the company hasn’t confirmed anything at this time, it won’t be long before this baby moves past concept. If you haven’t been keeping up with what the i3 is, it’s an all-electric ride that promises to shake up energy usage on the auto market. (Take that, oil companies.) What’s especially sweet about this auto is that it doesn’t look like your typical eco-friendly car. (As in Read More

Terrafugia TF-X

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve brought you an update on this flying car technology, but now’s as good a time as any, and there are a few new items of note with Terrafugia’s TF-X. For one, there are two models now instead of the one. Last time we brought it to you it was just The Transition. Now you can add TF-X, an upgrade, to the list. It’s also capable of speeds about 100 miles faster than its predecessor. A few more gap fill-ins: it should take the newbie about five hours to learn how to drive/fly Read More

Volkswagen XL1

With all the giant leaps forward that car companies are making in fuel efficiency, you’ve got to wonder why the technologies haven’t taken off yet. We’re no conspiracy theorists, but it seems like when you can churn out a car of the Volkswagen XL1′s caliber, an overpriced gas crisis should be the last thing on anyone’s mind (or budget). Until whoever stops whatever they’re doing to fleece us at the pump, however, we can dream about the day when more people are driving around in cars like this. The Volkswagen XL1 delivers an amazing 261 miles per gallon. Perhaps the Read More

Acura NSX Concept

The sleek and beautiful Acura NSX Concept promises great things for user control and energy efficiency.

Through the Acura NSX Concept, Acura is trying its hand at a new form of environmentally conscious vehicle – one that looks as suited to the showroom floor as the highway, and one that is capable of handling some of Read More

Aptera 2e Electric Car

China and America working together for a cost effective solution to energy efficiency? What is this world coming to? Hopefully, a very nice thing in the Aptera Electric Car. And not just because of the international spirit of cooperation either. How does 200 miles per gallon sound? It would at least make it more difficult for major unnamed corporations to gouge you at the pump! The Aptera 2e resembles a small aircraft (minus the wings) and reminds us of something Marty McFly might have encountered in Back to the Future Part 2. Chinese corporation Jonway Group, real estate guy Rick Read More
