Forget the electric autos and motorcycles -- the Sikorsky electric helicopter is the coolest electric vehicle around. This helicopter runs 100% on electricity and can stay airborne for up to 15 minutes.

The Sikorsky electric helicopter made its debut at the 2010 EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This helicopter doesn't look very comfortable or functional, but it is still a great first step for electric flight.
