From Ocean-Going Go-Karts to All-Electric Roadsters

By: Joey Haar - Jul 15, 2016
Driving is becoming a less palatable transportation option for many consumers concerned about the impacts of climate change, but it's impossible to ignore the convenience of motorized vehicles, and these alternative driving devices a a great way to bridge that divide.

With significantly smaller profiles than any traditional automobile, go-karts, buggies, roadsters, three-wheelers and other small-scale driving devices require far less horsepower to get their occupants moving. Whether gas-powered or fully electric, these vehicles cut emissions without cutting transportation efficacy.

Cities are especially crucial in the fight against climate changes, as they contribute to a markedly higher proportion of carbon emissions when compared to rural areas. These miniature driving devices are perfect for traversing cities, since their tiny frames help with parking as well as maneuvering in tight, high-traffic spaces. Though addressing climate change is an imperative for many consumers, these pint-sized driving devices show that motorized vehicles can still play a primary role in future transportation.
